Need Help With Glitched Armory Missions? Look/Post Here!

Since there seem to be a couple solutions for getting past the door, and trying to fit everyone into a single post is a pain, I'll just leave this as a guide and request thread. If a mod wants to update the thread title as such since I can't, go for it.

D
o not message me for help.



If you need help, leave your Gamertag, the mission you need, and playthrough number (1 or 2).



What Is This Glitch You Speak Of?

As you may or may not know, there's a potentially game-breaking glitch involving the armory, which is first encountered during the Armory Assault mission.

There's a small spot on the floor you can slip through to enter the armory and gain unlimited time to loot the place:


Cool, right?

But wait! You could potentially mess up your mission.

The Armory Assault mission only has two objectives: "Enter Code" and "Expose Munitions." The first is for pushing the buttons to open the small front door, which is fine; the second is for manually activating (pressing X on) the panel down the hall which triggers the countdown and shuts the big door. This allows people to glitch into the armory without accidentally triggering an objective. Saving and exiting is fine because the big door is still open.

The Super-Marcus Sweep and It's Like Christmas missions work differently. They have three objectives: "Countdown Started" "Steal Loot" and "Boom!"
The issue with this is that once you're glitched into the armory, it's possible to accidentally walk into a hexagon-shaped room and trigger the middle "Steal Loot" objective, which shuts the big door and prevents you from completing the "Countdown Started" objective. At that point, if you save and exit, you're screwed. If you either quit to dashboard or avoid that certain room, you should be able to save and exit fine.

Note: There's also a similar game-breaking glitch regarding multiple armory-related missions starting at the same time. Here's an explanation.
As of March 3rd, Gearbox has listed this as "under investigation."


Fixes
Kmack11 over at the Gearbox forums explains
here how to use a crapton of health kits and grenades to go under and past the door.
Thanks to BruinsFTW for the find.

Here's another video to help get past the door, created by Guru Inc:

I've just collected the Super Marcus Sweep quest and I can hold off doing it for a while I guess.

If anyone needs this send me an invite and we can do it together. Crawmerax or Circle of Duty quest line help would be nice, but not necessary

Who wants to join

I am about to do the super-Markus sweep mission playthrough 2 I only want people to join who it's glitched for not just getting xp or guns.
If you want to join in it's the first 3 people who message me that joins in, I would love if anybody who jumps in can dupe me a really good shield mine is 1950-275 but I know there are some good ones out there I can't find one, some nice guns would be nice also I love revolvers, snipers with high damage elemental.
I am a hunter and have lots of really good guns and mods which I would gladly drop for you also.
If we have time I can also do the it's like Christmas mission also I haven't even collected that yet so it's won't glitch.
I will be home and online in about 1 hour from now 9pm GMT so message me if you want in and I will invite back.

For the Local Trouble mission, it's based off the prison, not the armory. You have to complete it in order to get It's Like Christmas, which will let you enter the armory again.

If your Super-Marcus Sweep is still incomplete, though, you killed Knoxx and the barrier won't disappear? Just curious, since I guess someone else hosting would fix it anyway.

This happened to me. You need to join someone elses same mission and do it. I haven't tried it yet but hopefully trying it tonight. I will let you know if it works.

if anyone needs to do the "It's like Christmas" mission I will be doing that sometime tonight (need to finish the one before it first). if that mission glitched on you and you need help, just send me a message. i will most likely be on after 7pm EST.

You should tag along with lordrex217 tonight. You should be ok once you complete it on someone elses "It's like Christmas" mission. Just make sure that mission is selected when do you it otherwise it won't work.
