Borderlands 2 console patch addresses Badass Rank bug

Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox Software released a patch for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game today with numerous bug fixes and a remedy for players who were stripped of Badass Tokens, although it's unclear if the studio has completely resolved that issue.

Borderlands 2 will now be able to analyze save games and detect Badass Rank that was lost because of a glitch, a problem that players first reported in late September shortly after the game's release. "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," said Gearbox. Repeating the process for all characters will award players with as many Badass Tokens as possible.

According to the patch notes, Gearbox "modified profile behavior to better protect Badass Rank and related data." We're hoping that means the patch significantly reduces the occurrence of the glitch, if it doesn't completely eradicate it.

The full lists of patch notes for 360 and PS3 are available on Gearbox's website. The studio patched the PC version of the game a month ago to address the Badass Rank issue.
