So, there is a bug in the borderlands 2 badass point system that gets saved to your default profile folder. seems to be an issue when new created local lan saves are created, and you exit the game a certain way the local profile file could get messed up, its' that or the shift codes i've been using could mess it up, whenever i load a character from my main profile, and select a main character it seems to have the proper points still, but new chars start over. need to investigate more tonight.
i messed around with this more last night, definitely be careful when using 1 profile with multiple saves in split screen, also beware of connecting to games in co-op when the connection speed is laggy..
Messed around as well.. I deleted my profile and it def deleted my Badass points, and possibly my gold keys.. need to look again.. I had a back up so I could test it.. So I'm back to normal now, but ya.. def be careful..
would also have to note that this issue seems to be less likely on the PS3 than Steam/xbox versions from my views. Keep backups of the profile save in a different PSN profile/cloud save/ SD card if you are doing anything that could possibly corrupt the save. I've used the money swap for users, and that never broke my profile, but I've been extremely careful doing so as well. Be mindful is the best thing i would say.
Accidently found an unlimited gold key use last night.. hahaha
just putting this out there if someone doesn't know, Randy Pitchford has been dropping golden key codes on his twitter account. The keys have to be redeemed within a certain period (not first come first serve).

Also I got worried about the badass points bug and made backups just in case.
yah, they've been dropping golden keys a few times a week, usually only online for 2hrs or so. They say this was because they were testing this, so i think the shift codes are going to used in a variety of ways.
just backup your profile saves to another psn profile daily to prevent a major headache.
I back up my profile before using my goldkeys, just incase there is an issue 😉
yah, i've been following the forum on gearbox's site regarding the BA point issue. Xbox seems to have the most problems. Somehow the main profile save is getting cleared/altered. I believe the main way to do so on the ps3 was how I described. I'm tempted to goof around one night to see if I can break it doing what I described on the ps3. Not 100% sure. Some people have had issues with the new DLC that caused problems.
Anyone on their second playthrough in the game. I'm really like how certain levels scale. Dust being one example. Some of the quests i skipped are now twice what the quest listing shows them as, which probably needs to be fixed, but over all nice.
one other item to note about copying the profile save, the BA points/ stats are saved in profile the challenges are saved on the local save, so it's possible to get a mismatch with that.
I knew the BA points are profile.. anything shared among all the characters is I thought.. gold keys for example.. thats how that exploit works.. The challenges being on the save is probably why there were issues before..
