Download Huge Borderlands 2 Patch Now on Xbox 360, Soon on PC and PS3 Updated

The update solves the badass rank reset glitch and many other bugs

Borderlands 2 has just received a brand new patch on the Xbox 360 platform and will soon get the update on the PC and PlayStation 3 platforms. It fixes the lost Badass Rank data and prevents a variety of glitches from happening during certain missions.

 The patch is now available for download on PC (via Steam) and PS3 (via PSN).

Borderlands 2 came out back in September and had a pretty successful release, although several issues soon appeared that disrupted the experience of many players, who soon found that their Badass ranks were reset or that they were getting stuck during certain missions.

Now, developer Gearbox has posted a brand new update for the game, which should finally solve the Badass rank problem, while fixing a wide variety of other skills.

The patch is already available for Borderlands 2 on the Xbox 360 and should roll out for the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of the game later today.

Many changes are included in the update so check out the full list of modifications below, via Gearbox's support page.


Modified profile behavior to better protect Badass Rank and related data.

Added functionality to detect and restore Badass Rank in the event it was lost. To ensure you are credited for as much progress as possible, please load your character, select "Continue" on the Main Menu, and then "Save and Quit" after you enter the world. Repeat this process for each character in your character list.

Fixed challenges showing inaccurate completion amounts for area-specific challenges.

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.

The update is rolling out across all platforms and you should receive it sometime today, December 13.
