What...

exactly, is modding and how does one go about doing it in the console version of this game? I've seen all kinds of stuff about it in these forums (disdain seems to be the most common reaction to it). I don't want to do it myself (because I don't want to fuck my saves), I'm just curious.

then why do you need to know? MS bans accounts caught modding. i wouldnt do it & i dont play with those that do! besides why mod a game & make it easy? takes away the devs idea of gameplay & such. they put hard work into it. so respect their work & avoid modding things like guns! takes away the fun if you ask me!

Apparently you didn't notice the part where I said I wasn't going to do it. Stop coming at me like I've murdered a small child. As I said, I'm just curious. Plus, I'll need to get online for some of the DLC achievements and I'd like to know what to avoid so as not to screw my save files.

I'm not condoning this in any fashion, but modding usuall occurs through hex / or save editing.

This consists of opening the save file via a flash drive on a computer and editing current weapon stats or whole new weapons (which must pass certain requirements or the game rejects them) through software like WillowTree.

Fun stuff, even if I don't fully understand how to do this.

I didn't really notice the second portion of your post, so I'll take a stab at it too.

Typical mods include:
-Rose Omegas: Shields with like a 2 trillion capacity that never reduce as they recharge too quickly.

-Stock Weapons (ie. Stock Assault Rifle, Repeater Pistol, etc.) Appears white in inventory: Weapons with SUPER ENHANCED DAMAGE. For instance, a Stock Shotgun capable of 27k x 12 damage in one shot.

-Ironclad (Has no prefix, which means its different from the actual shield): Modded shield that has the attribute of increasing inventory space when sold. (Sticks in inventory forever, can glitch inventory)

-Watch for Double-named weapons, they are mods (however their damage scale is for some reason reasonable. )

- I'm unaware of the names, but certain guns can lag the host out when shot (how they do this is beyond me), also, certain modded weapons can make the player drop all their inventory when equipped.

Hope this helps!

As for how to avoid that stuff...play with friends who you know and trust and stay away from randoms. I had a friend who must have joined or had a randome join his game and then we played be ause I have the "keep your insides inside" glitch mission. To me, it's like the flu, it won't kill you but it messes you up.

ok if you're serious about avoiding it heres how. DONT pick up weapons or items dropped by online players! i cant stress this enough! a buddy of mine had a modded gun. he showed it to 3 of us online. as long as we didnt pick it up. we were fine. he warned us not to. he was showing us what to look out for. since hes beaten the game 10 times. he didnt care if his file was corrupted. so even your best online friends can screw you over. my advice when online. dont grab items on the ground period! mostly if left behind by anouther player. hope this helps. i too need the online ahcieves with dlc. dont pick up players items at all is your best bet ps i never came at you! i was blunt but not agressive! so calm down & dont react but act.

Ok, thanks guys, I'll know what to look for. Out of curiosity, does it cause the same glitches and other problems for the PC version?
