Borderlands 2's Xbox 360 Freezing Glitch Being Addressed, Patch Incoming
Written By
View author's profile

Borderlands 2 has been subjected to more than its fair share of bugs on Xbox 360, and to its credit, Gearbox has been rather quick to address any issues with the requisite patches. Now the studio is working on a patch that'll be looking to squash a freezing glitch that's been affecting certain players.

"Some potentially good news on this front: A new Xbox 360 update for Borderlands 2 is currently in certification with Microsoft which may resolve instances of freezing for some users", writes Gearbox Community Manager, Chris Faylor on the Gearbox Forums.

"At present, that update is tentatively expected to arrive during the week of December 3rd – 7th," Faylor notes.

"We're hesitant to say it will address all instances due to the possibility of there being other factors exhibiting similar behavior -- that's something we're continuing to investigate and dig into with the assistance of Microsoft -- but we're optimistic that this will help in at least some cases and will allow us to better diagnose/address any remaining causes."

[Thanks, Colin]

The only freezing I've come across is on the loading screens. Managed to find a work around and fire up the xbox guide whilst loading the next area. It takes a bit longer but manages to avoid freezing.

Is it safe to play public matches yet, for those that haven't got the freezing bug?

I need help to beat Pete the Invincible, but I'm afraid to put it on public, in case I get effected by the graveyard save.

@5, Graveyard virus has already been patched, bud. It has been for a few weeks. You should be fine playing public if that's all you're concerned about.

@#2 tbh, I've felt the same, I haven't picked up any of the weapons i've found or could buy in the DLC, cause I'm still running around with the same ones I've finished the normal game with.

I think they should give every boss at least one guaranteed drop (purple/orange) kinda like Terramorphous has with the classmods.
At least you know that something will drop when you beat him.

They also could have at least put slighty (since there is no level increase) better weapons in the dlc, to make those worthwhile.

how did they not report on the most important issue being addressed with this patch...Badass Ranks/Gold Keys/Skin/Claptrap Stash being reset. i guess Gearbox is still running with it being a rare issue

Gearbox don't take note from #1 answer because there lootin' is random for anyone to get loot weapons and items. He just unlucky, Gearbox.

I am so look forward Gearbox's next title is Aliens as well. :)

I guess I'm one of the fortunate ones to not find any problems in the game. No Graveyard virus, no freezing, no Badass Rank reset, etc. It's good that they're continuing to work on the game, though. One of my favorite games of the year.

Here's the official word from ChrisF for lazy peeps

'Some potentially good news on this front: A new Xbox 360 update for Borderlands 2 is currently in certification with Microsoft which may resolve instances of freezing for some users.

At present, that update is tentatively expected to arrive during the week of December 3rd – 7th.

More information as we have it.'

@#3 I recently had a BA Rank of about 15,000 and I loaded up Borderlands 2 to find out that it had been erased. I played for a while raised my BA Rank to 20 and stopped. Loaded it up again later in the day, and it had disappeared again. The second time I loaded it up, all my heads and skins were gone.

@ 10 learn fuckin english retard and @ anyone else
I traded this game because after 2 FULL playthroughs with 2 different characters I didn't get a single orange drop other than the shitty quest ones, check the gearbox website and you'll find countless more people with the same problem
even after grinding and grinding for a week I've only gotten 1 orange, just because you think he's *unlucky* or you think its not a problem, doesn't mean he is or it isnt a problem
they need to address it - I bought the game hoping to experience the WHOLE game - all guns and everything and shouldn't be subjugated to play and start, save, quit, reload countless times to do so. Get you're head out of you're asses

Wow Gearbox will spending spending a little fortune on all those small patches and MS will be laughing all the way through. they should just patch it along with each DLC or at least wait for something substantial, but then again maybe size of the patch affects it's cost...

I always hear about these issues for games but never see any myself. This carries over to "glitch" achievements, too. I must just be lucky?

But, hopefully this fixes any issues others may be having. Great game.

At least I will actually be able to play this game once again and play the DLC I payed for when I purchased the season pass. I haven't been able to play this game for over a month now thanks to it freezing at the Unreal logo all the time, and I know of others who haven't been able to play since a week or two after the game launched, resulting in many annoyed vault hunters trading in their copies.

@18 Stfu troll. Gotta be the only one not talking about the topic at hand. First of all, borderlands 2 is wayyyyyy better than blackops 2. Secondly, black ops 2 is trash in comparison to borderlands 2 because at least when I shoot someone in borderlands 2, the person actually dies. In blackops 2, you can unload a full clip into a person and still not kill because the servers for black ops2 are garbage. How about activision learn a lesson from bungie and 343 industries and get better servers? Or better yet learn from EA, because they make wayy less money than activision and still can afford better servers than trash Activision. Hold THAT B***H!

You're critiquing his/her English skills. Maybe you should double check the last sentence of your post.... I believe it is get "your" heads out of "your" asses.... Basic English buddy. Would you like me to also inform your of the differences between to, too, and two, or there, their, and they're? Because my guess is you have trouble with those as well.

Look who's the retard now.

@32 I bought this game at launch and havent had a single problem or glitch at all. If you love a game enough to buy at launch that dosent make you an idiot it makes you someone who knows what they want and can afford it. For me borderlands 2 is the best game I've played all year and if I get hit with any of the glitches it would suck but wont change my mind. I feel bad for you if you are seriously going to wait till its half price before you pick it up because you are really missing out. BTW it was 25 dollars on black friday, you couldnt afford it then?

Has anyone else had the problem now that the raid bosses being locked all the time now? I have never faced Hyperius and it is locked for me saying I already killed him. Pyro Pete is fine for me, but Hyperius is a different story. Anyone else having this problem?
