Borderlands 2's Mechromancer DLC appears to be resetting certain players' Badass Rank and removing their Gold Keys, according to complaints from those affected.

Multiple users reported problems on Twitter after downloading the title update accompanying the DLC's release earlier today. The glitch also allegedly removes players' customisation options.

"On borderlands 2 all my badass rank and tokens got reset, and my skin and heads for my assassin," one user tweeted. "What's going on?"

Another wrote: "Ok damage from todays #Borderlands2 Xbox update. Badass Rank has been reset, Gold Key total reset to just 1 from 5".

Many other users have reported similar issues. It's not known how widespread the problem is, or whether the glitch is limited to certain platforms.

This isn't the first time users have been hit by a Badass Rank reset glitch. Two weeks ago it was discovered that certain players' Badass Rank was being reset at random.

At the time, Gearbox said that it was working on a fix.

"Gearbox, seriously, what the [****]?! Patch this. NOW!" wrote a user on the game's official forums.

"This has been going on for some people for quite some time. Either fix it, or give people that can prove a reset their ******* points back." has contacted publisher 2K Games for comment.

No problems here... I got her to level 3 then turned it off, That would kinda suck if it happened though.

No problems for me either (360) i'm gonna stick my neck out and say it's probably the PS3 and/or PC users at this point. I dont get why keeping bugs out of those platforms seems to be so difficult! or at least more difficult, it's not like the 360 is exactly a cast iron platform lol

No problems here. At least so far. Had the Premium Club access downloaded prior to today's update and downloading Gaige. Fingers crossed no-one else gets their keys looted.

No problems here, 3MB update auto downloaded and installed on starting up my regular game on the 360, I then downloaded and installed the Gaige DLC, took her to level 7 and hit none of the bugs reported so far.

Title update allows the class to exist in your game, but Gaige herself is a separate download. Bearing in mind, at the very least you need the title update to play with anyone online, but there is nothing to stop you from just not allowing it to happen.

For what it's worth, I updated and downloaded, and have had no problems. However, this may be because I am on a different machine, one which had not actually downloaded the Premium Club access until after the character anyway.

Ah... does the Mechromancer download automatically for those of us in the Preorder Premium Club, or does the user still have to initiate the download? I'd rather play offline for a few nights than risk this (esp. given that I only have one more badass scale thing before netting an achievement...)
