Gearbox Software, developer of Borderlands 2, has asked fans to provide assistance in finding the cause behind a rare bug that can wipe out a players Badass Rank and cause the loss of all their collected skins. Anyone playing the PC version of the game that happens to have a save file from immediately before the glitch occurred is asked to send that profile file to firstname.lastname@example.org so that the developer can try to narrow down what is causing the bug.
Borderlands 2 features four playable characters which gamers can level up independently. By completing in-game challenges such as getting so many kills with a certain weapon type or reviving an ally a set number of times, players also earn points to raise their Badass Rank. This rank continues to level up allowing fans to acquire permanent bonuses to stats like reload speed, melee damage, and elemental effect chance. The best part is that a fan’s Badass Rank carries over to all saves, meaning those bonus stats provided through the rank is shared by all characters.
Borderlands 2 is out now for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
