Borderlands 2 – New Patch Fixes Unlimited Bank Vault Glitch and More, Now Live

As we reported earlier, Gearbox is patching a glitch that allowed players to essentially hoard as many items as they pleased in their bank storage. Along with a number of other fixes, said patch is now live on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

However, for those who have used this unlimited bank space glitch, any additional items that have been stored won’t be removed or missing from your bank once this patch is applied.

For the full list of patch notes, feel free to scroll down below:

April 18th 2013 Patch Notes

  • Added support and compatibility for upcoming content, including character customizations unlocked by playing Poker Night 2.
  • Fixed an issue where bank and stash capacity could be exceeded. This change prevents additional items from being added to stash / bank until capacity is below the maximum — it does not forcibly remove or delete any items.
  • Added a preview of available premium customizations when using a customization station so that players can see what a purchased head or skin would look like before buying.
  • Fixed an exploit where players could become invincible occasionally through the Siren’s Res skill.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from choosing a new customization from SHiFT when creating a character immediately after redeeming a customization code.
  • Added a new automatic backup feature — the game will periodically create a backup of your current character so that there is something to fall back on if your character save becomes corrupted.
  • The game will now attempt to automatically delete older compatibility packs that are no longer needed in order to free up some hard drive space.
  • Fixed issues with the following missions that could cause players to get stuck or not be able to complete them:
    • Bad Hair Day
    • Best Minion Ever
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the “Wildlife Preservation” mission boss to sometimes continue fighting after the encounter in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
  • (Captain Scarlett DLC) Fixed an issue that could cause Scarlett to not drop Scarlett’s Greed in the fight with Roscoe.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the player’s grenade count to not be saved properly if they were using a Grenadier class mod.
  • Fixed a bug causing Seraph items of the day to incorrectly be capped at level 55.
  • Rebalanced the Gunzerker’s Titan class mod to be more in line other Gunzerker class mods.
  • Fixed an issue where the Evolution shield could incorrectly list a Recharge Delay of 0.00 seconds.
  • Fixed audio from Impact shields not playing when connected to another player.
  • Fixed an issue causing audio distortion in some cases when a transfusion projectile got stuck inside an object.

In addition, Telltale games have also released a trailer of Poker Night 2, which, upon playing, unlocks some pretty rad customization skins and heads for Borderlands 2 and Team Fortress 2. Check it out below:

  • im still not level 61 yet :/ i dislike Bl2 story/missions

    • BorDerLanDs

      how? i mean im not 61 either cause i dont have the time to grind through all the missions and things but i liked the storyline of bl2 alot.

      • i mean i don’t LIKE how the story progresses not saying the story is bad *its good* but i don’t like how its missions push it along

    • crazy

      Wow idk how you don’t…I almost got 2 ppl to 61 and I love most missions. Plus the story is great. Jack is funny and eassy to like and dis like. You must be on some drugs

  • KillzoneVII

    The bank glitch was fixed?

    Alteast we get to keep all out items currently in it, but what’s the point if I take it out because I won’t be able to put it or anything else back in? I have nearly 80 items in my bank :/
    God dammit we need next gen for more RAM.

    • WarBro

      Not a ram issue. Design issue. For whatever reason Gearbox didnt intend people to hold on to all their weapons forever.

      • KillzoneVII

        Wow, well that sucks, I wonder why that is because they said before the game came out that we would have infinite bank space, now they’re patching it, I can understand it needs a cap because current gen can’t handle 1000+ guns, but I have 80 and nothing has happened, and I know people who say they have over 200. Alteast cap it at around 100-150 so we can have one of each quest-related gun, including DLC guns, and a few random guns. Oh well, Borderlands 3 will be on next-gen, maybe then they will give us a massive amount of bank and inventory space.

        • Peppermint

          Got every skin and head on a character…700+, without a single problem. Unless you drop them all on the ground and it mildly slows the game down for a little bit for a new player approaching the pile and returns to normal.

          • KillzoneVII

            Did you really just reply 5 months later? ……

            • Peppermint

              Not going to apologize, but didn’t notice the date…had a problem googled it =)

              Original problem still persists 5 months later =(

              As my post is trying to say…Gearbox is lieing to us about the problems involved with raising their inventory cap. Nor the first time or going to be the last time. They said the same thing about raising the level cap…and people modded full skills…proving they are liars.

              This patch was unnecessary and has brought new mod’ers into the mix. =(

            • KillzoneVII

              Ah, no I understand, I was confused as to why it took someone 5 months to reply XD

              As for gearbox I have no problem with moderns until they start infinite-nor fleeting everything so no one gets a chance to kill anything, but the inventory and bank space is a joke, it’s still less than that of BL1! Wtf gearbox!

            • KillzoneVII

              Means to say modders, I hate autocorrect.

  • JustWaffles

    Id be nice if they took Love Thumper’s friendly fire off, seriously whenever i go melee spec with Zero with friends i end up killing my friends so i have to change shields to Order -_-

    • samcitadel

      I agree. This sucks. They should just make it where the Ruby pistol doesn’t regenerate your health if they think this make’s Zer0 too powerful. i love this shield because of the recharge delay. I can live without the Rubi exploit. I’m sick of killing my friends though! wtf!?

  • Elembee

    I have no overloaded characters, but still can’t remove items from Stash or Bank

  • Axton the Commando

    464 MB on PS3. Pretty hefty patch. Maybe the final campaign DLC will be coming sooner than expected.

    • WarBro

      Yes. People have discovered class mods are dropping for the new Psycho character class after the patch, so theres definitely new DLC around the corner.

  • KiLLaMaNiLLa

    Anyone notice Psycho Class Mods in Vending Machines and i’ve picked up a couple skins for the psycho character too. Weird

    • Joel Santana

      Yeah, I’m aware of this. I will have a article containing what each ones does sometime in the middle of the week. As I’m currently working on other Krieg related things first, that you guys will definitely enjoy. 😉

  • KiLLaMaNiLLa

    oops didn’t see that post lol

  • km

    Its starting to seem that borderlands 2 is all that’s ever shown on this website. The game has almost as many bugs as a Bethesda title.

  • Tweeter83

    I was disappointed to learn the bank glitch was patched, however I did find it funny that the other day I went to start a new character and was able to play as Krieg the Psycho…. I understand that the DLC isn’t going to be released until May, but somehow I could still play as him, Made it to about level 6 or so and then quit, went back later to continue and now I get an error about how the DLC isn’t available, yet I still have a save game as Krieg the Psycho….. oh well, guess I’ll just wait it out and finish that game once its released….. Of course, that may explain why the latest update was so large in size…. DLC is already there but just needs an unlock code via purchase…

  • this game is awsome!!! I had some epic fights in ultimate vault hunter mode…and my level 50 legendaries didn’t do shit for damage either lol

  • YourFavMartian1

    This sucks i have 200-300 guns and now i have no room to store stuff iv played the game since it came out and iv had all the guns from trading my friends.

  • had to be fixed.i myself take advantage from it but it was ruining the gameplay.
    Borderlands 2

  • dan mallonee

    The fix on the invincible glich is rediculous some of the invincible characters are unable to beat without being invincible yourself. Put it back. Who buys your products? We do and we want the glich back.

  • Bo Treat

    the bank glitch is what made the game ACTUALLY playable, if we can’t keep the MILLIONS of weapons we find, then the game loses all replay value, i can’t just go pick up some random weapon and play for fun anymore, i have to carry what i have, and ignore loot. it’s pointless. the point of the game is get weapons, and now that is pointless.
