Borderlands 2 360 Patch Finally Fixes Rank Glitch

Remember back in September when Borderlands 2 players were experiencing a reset in their Badass ranks? Well, Gearbox finally released a chunky 360 patch to fix that and many, many other issues. Your Badass tokens will be reissued to be spent as you choose.

A notable addition that comes with this patch is the ability to reset challenges (not tokens) once you hit level 65. Tokens earned from those challenges will still be retained, but you can get extras for a higher badass rank. The specifics:

Players can now reset all challenge progress for a character once they've completed 85% of all non-DLC, non-area-specific challenge levels. This will keep the player's current challenge bonuses and rank, but reset all challenge progress to 0 and allow challenges to be re-completed for additional ranks and bonuses. This option will appear as a tooltip at the bottom of the "challenges" screen within the status menu if the player has met the criteria.

G4 is also reporting that the patch landed them 10 shiny Golden Keys. This could be a gift in return for the glitch's hassles, or it could just be a coincidence. Let us know what you're experiencing.

    65? am I missing something here?

      i expected a level cap increase coming at some point. could this be a hint? or maybe just a typo?

      Not quite

    Mmm, this may get me back into the game, as I gave up on one of my guys when he lost all his badass points.

      I never lost my badass points, but couldn't drag my brother of BLOPS 2 to play Torgue's expansion with me

      Bro's man! we bro the hell out of that game!

    I think they mean when you reach 65 badass rank - but actually I read the release notes and it says once you finish 85% of the campaign / area missions in campaign only (not dlc) you can reset the missions so get the loot again. Aka slagga / maggie - if you choose a difference side and wanted the other guns.

    If only epic could have patched this on Gears3.

    I'm aware its expensive to patch games via xbl and that developers generally wait to uncover most bugs so they can release a big patch but surely close to three months is too long a wait.
