  • Needs the lastest update or just goty edition ?

    • I assume just the latest version of the game. GOTY is just a bundle containing the base game + season pass content and such

  • sam

    do you use 2.0 along side 1.0 or do you replace 1.0?

    • Replace/Overwrite the old patch.txt file

  • Arttu Homanen

    is it normal that i get “unrecognised class or object Transient.SparkServiceConfiguration_6” message in the console whenever i type in the command to enable patch?

    • Do you have 2.1, i heard there was a issue with 2.0

      • Arttu Homanen

        yes i have

        • It’s related about the hotfix information, so probably because you are not online or your anti virus blocks it.

          • Arttu Homanen

            yeah that might be the issue because i am playing offline

          • Malfet

            Not the online/offline thing. Make doubly sure you have latest version. I was getting same error, and noticed that while Maya’s Scorn said 8 sec cooldown (which indicated that at least 2.0 changes were there) her Mind’s Eye still had crit/melee damage, not crit/accuracy tooltip. Something was wrong. Redownloaded 2.1, and all fine now.

          • Arttu Homanen

            one more thing, do u have to enable it every time when you launch the game or just once and it stays enabled?

          • Everytime you boot the game. Normally the game will chwck for the latest hotfixes. Now you need to enable it manually with this patch

  • Nicholas Lee

    Hey is it normal that I get Can’t find the’….binaries.txt.patch? I did everything correctly in the video

    • strange, if you follow the steps it should work. place the ‘patch.txt’ file in the ‘binaries’ folder. in your comments it looks like you made a ‘txt.patch’ folder

  • Fabian

    When i try to type exec patch.txt he doesnt do it he writes it in the chat. What can i do ?

    • did you enable the console menu and use that to exec patch.txt ?

      • Fabian

        i activated the console, then i opened my game opened the console and then i wrote exec patch.txt but he doesnt execute the command. He writes it in the chat

        • Malfet

          Seems like you didn’t finish editing your .exe file properly. I would recommend grabbing quite nicely put together utility from reddit thread there :https://www.reddit.com/r/Borderlands/comments/5xvdnh/borderlands2patcher_patcher_for_borderlands2exe/ , then restoring your original bl2.exe from backup, running utility, clicking on two upper options (you already have a patch in your binaries it seems), and trying running exec patch.txt again. Should work.

          • Fabian

            okay, thank you very much 🙂

          • Fabian

            Did work thanks again 🙂

          • Antonio Madurga Hernández

            one thing, it places “say” by default when you open the console menu, so I had to delete that word and it worked, cos the auto patch didnt make it for me.

  • HoboGrouch

    When I try to edit the ‘say’, when i save and close the hex editor, if I open it again it’s back to what it originally was. The earlier part of the hex edit still works though. Some help would be appreciated, thanks.

    • Not sure, check the video at 6:41, maybe this will help out.

  • Yannick Memmler

    For the next update, can u please do Bagman farmable after the mission is turned in? That will be awesome

  • G3n3r4l P0t4t0

    im trying to get that patch to work but it says find file patch.txt when i try to exec patch.txt it

  • Anubis Tot

    How i get the community weapon?

  • Kacper Simson

    I’m new and I’ve been playing borderlands 2, Can Someone tell me how I insert the most recent community patch there is. I’ve downloaded them down from Dropbox to my folder someone want to do it from then on. Thanks 🙂

  • sheldon mudd

    When i try to run it it leaves an error. how should i fix that? i tried using the offline one but that one isnt working.

    • MentalMars

      Not sure which errors you are getting, but you have to wait a few seconds in the main menu before activating the patch.

    • Not sure which error code you are getting. Wait a few seconds before activating the patch in the main menu.

  • James

    There is no programfiles/steam/steamapps/commen/borderlands2/binaries/ folder, i dont get it.

    • MentalMars

      Try the x86 programs folder

    • Try the x86 program folder. Its basically go and look in your steam game folder

  • crispy bacon

    this might be a dumb question but i am curious, are the previous patches added into the new one? or do i need to download patch 1.0, 2.0, 2.1, and 3.0 all seperatly and put them into a folder

    • Just use the latest patch it contains all the previous stuff. Some things might have gotten a balance change down the line.

      • crispy bacon

        cheers mate

  • Type-125

    should i install the previous patches too or the latest one is enough?

    • Just the latest one, if a new patch releases just overwrite the old one

  • twobearshighfiving

    i just installed it and noticed that for some weapons the rarity color has changed, it only happened with a diamond shotgun i have and with adiamond dart as well. is this normal?

  • Type-125

    Is the patch working as intended? Cause I’ve been farming the hell out of gold Golem and I’m yet to see a Grog Nozzle drop for me. I did get a legendary shotgun though. Is the chance really low or something is going on with the patch?

  • Nyx

    This pretty much breaks the game, i just expected something like the Skyrim patches which include only bug fixes and nothing else. I have no interest in overpowered skills, weapons and guaranteed legendary drops everywhere..
    //Edit: It doesn’t even fix any major bugs.

    • The community has some issues with the end game. Some stuff isn’t as useful on OP8, this gives those players more diversity in their playstyle. Some bugs can’t be fixed with a hotfix (what this community patch is) and requires more coding and knowledge of the systems. I would love to see some community headhunter packs.

      • Nyx

        I do play on OP8 and already find it easier than my first TVHM playtrough. I can imagine the game can be made into complete faceroll with some of these “buffed” weapons and character skills. I’m still going to give it a try though, some of these changes look pretty cool and not so much game-breaking. (New skins, yay!)
        I would too like to see some community DLCs! ^^

        • Balancing is a discipline not an event. If you have any recommendations you can contact shadow, he has already reversed some of his changes due to balance or feedback. Have fun playing!

  • Chris Ansorge

    When i try to exec patch.exe, console says it doesn’t find the file but it is defenitly in ../../binaries
    Is it maybe cause my steam folder is on D: and not on C: drive?

    • Chris Ansorge

      ohmahgawd I’m stupid i typed every time patch.EXE instead of patch.TXT, fixed it

      • of course you want to execute a executable. Enjoy and Launch VaultHunter.exe

    • Coko

      i have the same problem…. but in my case it says that the file cant be found when i do type it right…. exec patch.txt…. so frustrating

  • Type-125

    Should I apply the patch through console everytime I quit to the main menu or only when I load up the game?

  • Gizmo

    thanks to that retarded patch i lost 2 hides of terra shields , 2 times when i joined hosts that was running those patches , just deleted from my character equipment slot , i go out that game i spawn in my own game hide gone , 2 TIMES , thanks allot for ruining the public even more now..

    • Just heard that this issue got fixed and you should re-download the patch.

  • That Guy

    When i use the patch everything works perfectly, except the skins which only seem to work in the offline mode script. Any solution?

  • Jim

    I followed all the steps, but when i tried typing in the command it just types it in the chat, but than i moved the backupfile that was created by the hex workshop and retried it and it says “command not recognized” so did i fix it?

  • Ruud

    Lost my hide of terra just by entering my character. Must be fixed!

    • I heard this issue got fixed and you should re-download the patch.

  • Type-125

    I think there is something wrong with the patch. I got both deliverance and infinity from the Gold Golem but I’m yet to see a Grog Nozzle drop despite the patch removing the legendaries from his loot pool. And I’ve done more than 100 runs. It would be great if you could look into it as getting a bladed Grog Nozzle was my primary goal for installing this patch.

  • Coko

    it didn’t worked in bd2 and hoping for the best it didn’t worked in the sequel…… in both of them i had the same issue….. “cant find patch.txt”
    i kinda feel like claptrap…..STAIRS?!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
    i have no idea what i’ve done wrong….. i followed every single step…. the patch is were its supposed to be….. i dont understanddd :((((( can someone please help

  • Marek Brandon

    hey guis so I probably messed up my gamefile when getting the patch running nor place called frostburn canyon (the firehawk mission in casee I got the area na wrong) wont load and I det a pretty long error message mostly rpeatedly sying item not found. so if anyone knows where I can go to fix this problem or can help me finda a copy of the file I messed that would be awesome.

  • Dynamo

    I can’t find my save files for my character after i added my patch, any help?

  • Alvin Vanggaard

    A question that is not regarding bl2, but more the files, since after I installed the patch I’ve noticed I sometimes get notifications from this website on windows 10. Is there any way to disable this? I can’t seem to find anything regarding this in windows settings. It’s not like I don’t want some of the news, but prefer not to get reminded even when not on the website 🙂

    • Installing this patch has noting to do with the push notifications you are getting. When you first visited this website you get a question if you would like to receive push notifications, you probably accidentally activated it. You can deactivate push notifications in your internet browser. I installed this feature a little while back because of high demand, but i also understand its not for everyone.

      • Alvin Vanggaard

        Thanks for the quick reply! That makes a whole ton more sense, will take a look at it 🙂

  • CosmicOne

    I get the message: Can’t find file ‘….Binariespatch.txt’ I assure you it is in there with the Borderlands2.exe file that I just modded with the Hex editor. I do not have Borderlands 2 on the C drive…it is actually in the SteamLibrary directory on F and has all of the expected directories. Steam lives on the C drive – as do the save files under “MyGames” in the Documents directory, but the borderlands files are on F. I even tried typing: exec F:SteamLibrarySteamAppscommonBinariesWin32patch.txt

    Any way I can force it to find the patch with my game installed in this manner?

  • CosmicOne

    I finally had time to get the patch working.

    I have been using, building, and programming computers since
    they ran on coal – which is mostly what tripped me up installing and running this
    patch. I thought my experience might be
    useful to others.

    Issue 1: Use the Hex editor (Hex Workshop) he recommends
    under “Modify your game”. I have several hex editors on my
    computer. I use them all the time. I did
    find out that they don’t necessarily handle Unicode gracefully. This is one of those problems that wouldn’t come up for most semi-normal people who don’t already use Hex editors.

    Issue 2: Was pretty obvious to me, but may confuse some people – the name of the configuration file you need to edit is willowinput.INI – not willowinput.TXT as is shown under “Enable Console Menu”.

    Issue 3: I put the patch.txt in the Binarieswin32 directory where the Borderlands2.exe file
    lives. It says right in the instructions that you should put it in the Binaries directory, but the programmer section of my brain immediately assumed that it should be with the game executable file. Again, not a problem that a semi-normal person would encounter.

    issue 4: When you click on the link “Download the community Patch” it takes you to what looks like a directory with 4 TXT files (including Patch.txt) available. The link says “patch.txt”. If you have been using the internet since 1988, your first impulse is to right-click the file name and click “save link as” to save the actual text file instead of getting a listing of the text file in your browser. BUT…….since the patch.txt file is hosted on Dropbox, you actually need to click on patch.txt – which takes you to another Dropbox page with a preview of the file – and most importantly – a Download button in the upper right corner. If you use “save link as” like I first did, you end up saving a the entire next Dropbox webpage with the Download button on it. As you might have guessed, the resulting XML doc cannot be executed by the Borderlands console.

    I have Community Patch 3.0 working now and it’s pretty kewl. I appreciate the thought and work that went into it. I also looked at some of the other mods available on Github. They are worth a look.

  • KittyCatAkimi

      ”A short guide for that:
      Find C:Users…DocumentsMy GamesBorderlands 2WillowGameConfigWillowInput.ini.
      Find and replace “ConsoleKey=Undefine” with “ConsoleKey=Tilde”. Tilde key should now open the console in-game.
      Now on to modding the game to make the console useful. This method was tested on the Steam, Windows version.”

  • Jim

    Should i install all the patches or just install the latest one?

    • Just the latest one, currently 3.1

      • Jim

        Okey, thanks for the information

  • The Earman

    This is a very good mod and I’m loving it, but there’s a bug with the interfacer skins that makes some of the textures blurry. Just a heads up. Thank you for this wonderful patch.

  • shred

    I am trying to install this using the ‘Automated’ method and the game keeps crashing whenever I try to execute the patch. I’ve tried both patches and I get the same result. Can someone help me please?

    EDITED: I’ve also tried the ‘Manual’ method and it isn’t doing any of the changes.

  • Ryan Gillgrass

    So i killed dex and was hoping to get a lady fist as it states that he has a 100% drop, yet i couldnt seem to find it, secondly i have killed H3RL-3 multiple times and never once has he dropped a pimpernel or the sandhawk. I first manually downloaded patch 3.0 but more recently used to auto patcher for patch 3.1 do i need to download all of the patches or am i just insanely unlucky?

    • You just need the latest patch. Random = Random, so you could just be unlucky, you can check some of the other stuff that comes with the patch to see if its working properly.

  • Christian Cozianu

    will this work with cracked or versions of the game that doesnt come from steam???

    • i dont know you tell me you already cracked the game once a second time couldnt hurt.

      • Christian Cozianu

        im pretty sure they are the same files (cracked files and steam files) so im pretty sure it would work but who knows 100%???

        • Basicaly with this patch you are telling te game not to check te server for a hotfix

          • Christian Cozianu

            so i almost got it working…BUT i keep on getting the error code when i type in the console “exec patch.txt” : unrecongized class or object transient spark. whatever whatever.and i keep on getting besides when i use the offline patch.weird…..

    The automated patch isn’t updating to the 3.1 version, only to 3.0. Any suggestions?

    • You can manually replace the “Patch.txt” file, the autopatcher just helped you hex edit the borderlands file

      • Markus

        I realized it was working, however some of the features will only work if I run the patch and then I go ‘select character’ instead of going straight to ‘Continue’, For example, If I run the patch and just get into the game with my Zero without going into ‘select character’ first, the Crit Damage description on Deception will still be there and the weapon swap will still be sped up by 20% on UVHM. Maybe it’s a wrong boot order or something? I have no clue about programming so I’m just guessing.

        Thanks for the reply.

  • Shymin

    For whatever reason, I have completely ruined my game and it crashes every time I try to launch it.
    I did follow the tutorial step by step, but except when you launch it mine crashes, I have no idea what causes it do to this, perhaps I did something wrong in the Hex Editor, probably changed something wrong as I usually do with things like this.
    I did create a back up for my Borderlands 2 save file, and also pressed “Yes” on the back up in the Hex Editor.
    No matter what I do it will probably ruin it, so I’m asking for assistance; any advice?

    • Shymin

      Oop, fixed it.
      I accidentally replaced 75 with FF along with c0.
