If you’ve disconnected your Ethernet cable, or perhaps released a swarm of flying nanobots to block your Wi-Fi signal to minimise the chances of your Borderlands 2 character from going to the graveyard, you’re probably in need of psychological evaluation. Soon though, you’ll be able to enter Pandora again.
A post on the Gearbox forums says that the developer is aware of the hacks that “maliciously disrupts the experience and sabotages characters of legitimate Borderlands 2 players.”
“After extensive internal testing, an update to prevent this disruption has been submitted to Microsoft and will be released as soon as possible. Until then, concerned Xbox 360 players of Borderlands 2 should consider playing online with trusted individuals in non-public sessions. This does not affect players on PC or PlayStation 3,” Gearbox says.
Your safest option, they say is to always select “Save and Quit” from within the pause menu while still alive. If however you do die, Gearbox offers the following advice.
“If after the death of their character players find themselves at the main menu of Borderlands 2 instead of respawning in-game, be sure to immediately select “Continue” to resume playing as that character.”
If you’re still worried – that patch to disable it all should be along soon.
