2K Responds To Borderlands 2 Badass Rank Issue

Reports this morning suggested the new Mechromancer download content was causing a previous bug that erased players' badass rank to creep up again. Publisher 2K Games responded saying that's not that case at all.

“2K and Gearbox have been working steadily to fix a bug reported to us by fans that resets Badass Rank, and while this bug has only been affecting a very small number of players worldwide and does not affect the ability to play Borderlands 2, addressing this issue is still very important to us," the publisher said in a statement sent to Game Informer.

"We ask that players who have experienced this issue to email us at with as many details as possible to help us gather additional information so that we can squash this reported bug."

2K also said the new patch and Mechromancer class are in no way related to the Badass Rank issue and that fans should feel confident downloading both.

"A further compatibility update will follow in the coming days to address connectivity issues between those who have the Mechromancer and those who do not. Full release notes for today’s patch can be read here: Xbox 360, PS3, PC.”
