Borderlands 2 Bug Makes Players Less Badass

There is a rather nasty reset bug out there that seems to be hitting certain players of Borderlands 2. As reproduced above by YouTube user RyogaWanderer, players affected by the bug are finding their badass totals reset, while the challenges they have completed remain marked completed — meaning that the players whose totals have dropped can't re-earn those lost tokens.

Items and upgrades purchased with badass tokens are also vanishing, without returning the tokens to the players' totals.

Players on the game's forums are reporting that this has happened on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game.

Gearbox community manager Chris F wrote on the forums that Gearbox is looking into a fix. In the meantime, players have suggested a variety of tips for avoiding the bug, which seems to relate to profile save corruption, on 360 and on PS3.

We've asked Gearbox for comment and will update if we hear back.

    I heard about this a on Saturday hopefully it doesn't happen to me losing 5500 badass ranks worth of stats would suck.

    Bloody hell, why is it so easy to get corrupt player data files.
    First I get reset on gears of war 3, now its possible in BL2 as well.
    SMH..

    What hey also need to do,
    Is fix the Play Station 3 save files.
    I Played for several hours, saved and exited then came back and 'POOF' my save file disappeared!

    Also, is anyone else finding their skills that give bonuses just cease to work every now and then. My Siren action skill buffs just turn off at random times...

    Yeah got this happen to me last night, lost 3k badass rank, 30+ skin customizations, and all my passive stats :( which has cost me 10% damage decreas and a 20% drop in HP... games just gotten a lot harder.

    hoping they patch this for PC very soon.

    Lost vehicle and character skins suddenly, and I've heard it's not possible to just get another of the same skin and use that as it won't appear in the customisation menu. Also, I've "unlocked" some skins which have never appeared in the customisation menu to use.
