Borderlands 2 Unofficial Community Patch UCP

Community Patch  4.0

With feedback from the community some badasses have created an unofficial community patch for Borderlands 2 to make the game even more badass. By tricking the hotfix update proces data will now be loaded in from a local file instead of the Borderlands servers. The local file which contains the community updates will fix certain gameplay issues and enrich your experience.

The first community patch buffed certain gear and  made things like Seraph crystals an auto pick up. With the second  patch the community started addressing the skill trees of the various vault hunters. This way  under-performing skills got a small boost to make them viable for late game and provide new options for interesting builds. Since then balance changes have been made, new loot drop locations have been added, and new visual skins for certain weapons have been added. So if you want the ultimate Borderlands 2 experience check out the Borderlands 2 UCP. If you are looking for the ultimate Borderlands the Pre-Sequel experience than check out the BLTPS Community Patch.

  • Weapon Buffs
  • Shield Buffs
  • Boosted Skills
  • New Weapon Skins
  • Modified Class Mods
  • New Weapon Drop Locations
  • Repeatable Slaughter Domes
  • Auto Pick Up Rare Currency

Check the change log for a complete overview of all the changes

How to install the Community Patch:

Before you go and apply the Borderlands 2 unofficial community patch i would like to point out these few things:

  • Don’t have Borderlands 2 running on your system when you apply these changes.
  • All changes are made at your own risk, Gearbox Software, 2K Games, The Community Devs, or Me(ntalMars) are not responsible if you break your game.
  • All input commands below need to be done without the “”, just use the content between the tags.
  • Currently the community patch is only available on PC.  Applying this on the consoles would break the terms of service which could result in other nasty stuff.
  • You have to be in online modus or else the patch won’t work (if you want to play offline use the offline version if available).

Install Option:

Choose  one of these options

Using Filtertool (Recommended)


  • This program enables you to select which changes of the community patch should be active or not.
  • With the v2 update of filtertool you can now also hexedit your game file and enable the console key to  run the community patch.
  • With community patch 4.0 some custom stuff is deactivated by default and can be enabled with this filtertool.


Run  Borderlands
  • Then launch your game
  • Once in the main menu open console, type “exec Patch.txt”(or PatchOffline.txt if you want to play offline) and press enter. Do it after game downloads all stuff(when you see actual menu).
  • That’s all, you can now enjoy patch! It will work only for current session, you need to enter console command every time you launch the game. You can press “Arrow Up” to show your last typed command on console.

1.8 Can I use the Community Patch or mods on my console?

  • No. And it’ll never happen either since it’s against console ToS.

1.9 How do I know the UCP is running?

  • Go in-game and compare skills from your skill tree with the changes made by the UCP. Changelog can be found in the changelog.

1.10 Do I need to execute the UCP every time I go into the game?

  • You need to execute the UCP every time you start up Borderlands.

1.11 I can’t open the console.

  • Go to \Documents\My Games\Borderlands 2\WillowGame\Config and open the WillowInput file, search for ConsoleKey and set it to F6, then try again. If the file is all messed up, delete it, launch Borderlands 2, close it again and you should have a fresh WillowInput file.

1.12 When I execute the patch in the console, it says it can’t find the patch.txt.

  • Make sure you have the UCP in the right folder (Right Click Borderlands 2 on Steam -> Properties -> Local files -> Browse local files… -> Binaries (FILE GOES IN HERE)). Also make sure you didn’t save the UCP as patch.txt.txt (this happens if you don’t have file extensions enabled but still named the files patch.txt instead of just “patch”). You can also type in “exec patch.txt.txt” if you can’t be bothered to fix it.

1.13 When I execute the patch in the console, it just says it in chat as “say exec patch.txt”

  • Make sure you actually hex edited your Borderlands, and if you did already try again with another method (Filter Tool / Hex Multitool / Manual hex edit)

1.14 When I execute the UCP or when I enter the game with the UCP my game crashes.

  • We don’t really have any fixes for game crashing on execute / on game start besides not using a cracked version of Borderlands 2, deleting your Borderlands2.exe and letting Steam verify your game’s integrity and then hex editing your game again with another method (eg. Hex Multitool), then trying again. Also make sure you didn’t break your patch file somehow.

1.15 How do I enable the optional changes of the UCP?

  • Open the UCP with the Filter Tool.
  • Go to the optionals category and open up the change you want
  • Uncheck the current module and check the optional module
  • Save the UCP

1.16 How do I uninstall the Community Patch?

  • You don’t need to “uninstall” the Community Patch. Just don’t execute it when you enter the game and you’re good to go.

1.17 Half of the patch doesn’t work / I’m getting two error lines which say something with Transient.SparkServiceConfiguration_6.

  • The hotfixes don’t work which means either:
    1. You’re executing multiple mods with hotfixes one after another
    2. You’re not online or connected to SHiFT or Steam
    3. You executed the mod/patch ingame, not in the main menu
    4. You executed the mod/patch too fast in the main menu
    5. You’re using a cracked version of Borderlands
  • If 2. is the case, try setting your game to offline and use the offline patch which can also be found in Shadow’s video or on the Github.

1.18 Even after all attempts, the UCP still doesn’t work properly.

  • Rename your UCP file to something else and try again, this is an unknown issue and sometimes this fixes the issue. Also when hex editing your Borderlands 2, try turning off any Anti-Virus you’re running (like Avast).

1.19 My Cradle/Tidal Wave/ Emperor/etc aren’t being replaced!

  • You need to open the UCP with the Filter Tool, then go to the optional replacements tab, find the change you want to enable, un-tick the option you don’t want first then tick on which change you want. Don’t forget to press file>save patch so your changes are saved! (Example)

1.20 What is a hotfix?

  • Basically a different kind of command which requires a connection to Steam / SHiFT. You can only execute one batch of hotfixes at once.

1.21 Can I execute one mod after another?

  • Principally yes, but you need to merge all mods which have hotfixes in them.

1.22 Can I make a master.txt to execute all of my mods in one?

1.23 Can I use the UCP / mods in coop?

  • Yes, the host determines what’s active in the game lobby. If the host is running the UCP and none of the other players do, they also get the UCP changes, however everybody should run the same mods to avoid issues like skins not appearing.

1.24 Can I use mods without the UCP?

  • Yes, however if a mod contains hotfixes but doesn’t contain Gearbox’ Base Game hotfixes (eg. Death Mark buff / Varkid Evolution changes etc.), the Gearbox’ Base Game hotfixes will be lost upon mod execution.

1.25 When I try to start Borderlands TPS after hex-editing it give me the error code “0xc0000142”

  • Didn’t I tell you that you need a legit version of Borderlands? :^)

2. Filter Tool FAQ

2.1 How can I merge mods/hotfixes?

  • Open the Filter Tool.
  • In the navigation bar, select “File” and “Open file” and pick the mod.
  • Once the mod is opened in the Filter Tool, click on “Developer Tools” and choose “Add single mod”.
  • Pick the mod you want to add and done.
    (- If you want to change the load order, click “Developer Tools” and choose “Enable structural edits”, then drag the mod where you want it to be. Mods lower in the load order will overwrite mods higher in the load order.)

2.2 How can I “unmerge” mods/hotfixes or how can I get a specifc part from a mod as a file?

  • Open the Filter Tool.
  • In the navigation bar, select “File” and “Open file” and pick the mod.
  • Once the mod is opened in the Filter Tool, click on “Developer Tools” and make sure “Enable structural / content edits” is checked
  • Right click the category / mods you don’t want and either delete it or “Export category as mod” if you want that category / mod in a separate file

2.3 So I merged all the mods, what do I execute now?

  • The file you saved the mods into. So if you merged your mods into the UCP and saved it to the patch.txt, you execute the patch.txt.

2.4 How do I read / edit code with the Filter Tool?

  • In the navigation bar, click “Developer tools”, uncheck “Hide actual code” and check “Enable structural / content edits”.

2.5 How do I dump code with the Filter Tool?

  • In the navigation bar, click “Misc tools” and click “Object explorer”. Put the object into the search bar and click “Dump” or put single words into the search bar and click “Search”.

2.6 What is convert .hotfix file?

  • This is a necessary option that you will need for very minimal files (ex: DarkHell’s Skill Randomizer)

2.7 My Filter Tool crashes when I’m trying to merge large mods (eg. Randomizer mods).

  • From LightChaosman:
    Is your filtertool having issues merging large mods (think, randomizers), and crashing at some point, but otherwise working fine?
    Odds are your operating system is not giving java enough RAM to work with. If this is the case, the log files should mention something about heapspace.
    To fix this, run the filtertool using cmd, using any of these three commands, which try to allocate more & more RAM to java.
java -XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=50 -Xmx1g -jar FilterTool.jar
java -XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=50 -Xmx1536m -jar FilterTool.jar
java -XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=50 -Xmx2g -jar FilterTool.jar

2.8 My Filter Tool crashes pretty much immediatly after starting it.

  • From LightChaosman:
    • If your filtertool is not starting, but you are being able to execute as a .jar file, try running it using your command line interface.
    • To run it with CMD you usually use java -jar FilterTool.jar.
      Instead, try running it with java -XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=50 -jar FilterTool.jar
      It should look like this.
    • To open a CMD in your binaries folder, hold shift while right clicking (no file selected), which in your binaries folder will look something like this.
      Alternatively you can type cmd in your adress bar and press enter.
    • If that didn’t work, FT does not have proper write permissions in the location you’re executing it. Run it as administrator, or at a different location, or make sure your file permissions aren’t denying it write permission.

2.9 I have issues with the Filter Tool on Mac.

  • From LightChaosman:
    • If you’re running MAC or have issues starting the filtertool in general, use filtertool 2.1.3 open beta instead of 2.2, which can be found here.
      This version should open normally on all platforms, but has less support for mod development.

2.10 I still have issues with the Filter Tool.

  • From c0dycode:
    • Completely remove outdated-java-versions with this tool.
    • More information about this uninstaller can be found here.
    • The user can choose to remove all or select specific versions of Java to remove
      Only Java versions installed using the Java installer are detected. If Java is bundled with any application that uses its own installer, that version of Java will not be offered for removal.

Check if there are any outdated-versions left of the JRE
x64 Path: C:\Program Files\Java\
x86 Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\
If you do, check via your Windows Control panel if you can uninstall it that way. Should you have removed ALL java versions, download the newest version here.

Support/Knowledge base


  1. Saymon Carvalho

    Needs the lastest update or just goty edition ?

    • MentalMars

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

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

    • Replace/Overwrite the old patch.txt file

  3. 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

      • yes i have

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

          • yeah that might be the issue because i am playing offline

          • 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.

          • 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

  4. 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

  5. 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 ?

      • 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

        • Seems like you didn’t finish editing your .exe file properly. I would recommend grabbing quite nicely put together utility from reddit thread there : , 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.

          • okay, thank you very much 🙂

          • Did work thanks again 🙂

          • 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.

  6. 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.

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

    • Shadow would look into it

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

  9. How i get the community weapon?

  10. 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 🙂

  11. 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.

    • 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.

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

    • Try the x86 programs folder

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

  13. 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.

      • cheers mate

  14. 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

  15. 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?

    • yeah, that’s the gemstone rarity

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

      • 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!

  18. 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?

    • 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

    • 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

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

  20. 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.

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

  22. 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?

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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

  26. 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.

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

  28. 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.

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

  29. 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?

  30. 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.

  31. Gettle and Mobley seem to drop neither the Veruc nor Lyuda when I run the patch, can this be looked into?

  32. I sincerely wish there was an auto installer <_<

  33. I cannot get the console key to work. I set it to ~ , but it won’t activate. Anyone want to help?

    • im having the same problem here, i tried changing the key, and yet it still did not work, i tried clicking patch and download too, but to no avail

    • ”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.”

  34. I don’t know why I ask that, because I know the answer, but I want to be completely sure.
    When you try connect to a player without patch, what will happen?

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

    • Just the latest one, currently 3.1

      • Okey, thanks for the information

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

      • 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

          • 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…..

  40. Please add a way to farm the kitten.

  41. When i search for the string ’83C40C85C0751A6A’ in the hex editor it doesn’t find anything, any ideas?

    • Try the auto patcher

      • I did that before trying the manual way, but I couldn’t get the console to appear

        • ”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.”

  42. Hey, I got problems installing the patch. I cant find a way to open the console eventhough I changed the Hotkey multiple times. Pls help.

  43. Whats the drop rate for grog nozzle from gold golem? I farmed him at least 20 times yet nothing has dropped..

  44. how do i know if it worked?

  45. you could try to get rid og bee shield bug

  46. 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

      • 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.

  47. 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?

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

  48. Question:

    I have community patch 3.0… how do I update to 3.1? Do I have to redo the hex editing?

    • Dont hex edit, replace the ‘patch.txt’ file with the newer version

  49. Is their a Patch for Mac Operating systems?

  50. Why do I have to re-enable the patch every time I restart the game? I thought this was an actual patch since it’s called so. Is there no way to make it an actual patch that behaves like an actual patch when installed? .. so that one would only need to re-enable it for downgrading or for clear installs.

    • The thing you patch is the location of the hotfix data, this is data the game pulls in from GBX’s server for the latest soft patch. What you do is set a different location and you manually need to trigger that location that’s what you load every time you type in:” exec patch.txt ”

      • I get that. But why can’t it remember? That is what I wanted to ask.

        Would it be possible to make a shortcut to the executable file and add something in its properties, so when started, after loading the game files, it automatically activates and enables the patch contents (I believe it is something like [ “path-to-exe” -init something] or something like that)? In a way that also makes it unnecessary to re-select the current character for enabling the changes… perhaps by including the console commands that would equate to the result of that same manual process.

      • Ok, so I did all that needs to be done, but when I quit a session with a character and the game returned to the main screen the little ‘checking for downloads’ box appeared instead of the menu and just kept searching, basically locking down the program.

        So how to fix the issue? – this happened for the first time for me and only after applying the patch and starting a session with it then exit-saving.

        When I installed the game I blocked all outbound activities in the OS firewall for borderlands and I want to keep it that way without ever changing that even for a second.

  51. does this work in multiplayer to if both players have the patch?

    • Yes

      • k then i am downloading it

        • Enjoy!

    • Only the Host needs to have the Patch

  52. when i try to execute the patch it shows “unrecognized class or object transient.sparkserviceconfiguration_6” ….any help ??

    • That’s normal. No need to worry

  53. Do i need all the patches or just the recent one? Meaning if i install 3.1 do i get everything from the other patches?

  54. One request I would love to see. New legendary Mod for Maya.

  55. When i click on ”Find” and enter this ”say’ its doesnt find the string what should i do?

    • did you try the auto patcher ?

      • I think i got it thanks

      • The next problem is that i dont find the console key…

      • There is no ”Console key binding” in the Input file… i think this whole thingy needs a huge update

  56. Can somone give me the [Engine.Console] Stuff it doesnt exist in my file 🙁

  57. The buff to the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot drop rate hurts drop rates for legendary class mods from Tubbies, drop rates for skins and bones from Loot Midgets, and I suspect also hurts Norfleet drop rates from Hyperius. I like how you improved the WTF, but feel like this patch kind of excessively shoves it down our throats in drop rates.

    Absolutely love everything else about the patch by the way – that’s the only issue that has me deactivating it, depending on what I’m doing.

  58. Hello! I have a question about the community patch – is it possible to change the scaling to be more in line with Borderlands 1’s scaling? I’m attaching images to better show what I mean, as BL2’s scaling always struck me as quite weird and pointlessly inflating the characters’ stats

    • Yeah GBX did that on design, they wanted you go and find new weapons faster than with BL1. This design affected the whole scaling of the game. So if we went back to the original scaling the whole game has to be balanced again. Weapons, enemies, skills, bosses, you name it. That would be a big undertaking. With the pre-sequel you see that they are a bit in the middle, so that might be a good indication for the next Borderlands game.

      • Ah, I should’ve thought it’s not as simple as changing a few setting. Another question I forgot yesterday – would it be any more possible to make enemies always scale to the player level like they do in UVHM regardless of whether Normal or TVHM is being played? I always find myself overlevelled around the end of Normal mode and most of TVHM so much that I have to avoid playing DLCs until the end of TVHM to avoid making it worse.

    • 10 levels? Not even in BL1. Also you dont need to find gun everytime you level in BL2.

  59. i am assuming that if i wanted to play regular borderlands2 i just dont type the command
    there wont be any isuses if i play with the old beforepatch charecters online or offline

  60. how do i recover the original file that the auto patcher backed up

  61. Hello how do I patch it to 4 if I already have 3.1, I can’t seem to get 4

  62. do i have to re-download the automated borderlandspatcher again in here when a new update just got released? or the auto patcher gets the new version automatically from this site(im gonna just gonna have to open the patcher again and click download patch then patch again.)?

    • Just replace the patch.txt file

  63. I’ve been playing Axton for about a week now and I just got to where I’m farming the Ogre and Twister and I read Patch 4.0 and they’re getting de-buffed? Its literally the only two weapons I want to use on him. Should I just not install 4.0? Am I missing something or are these two guns going to be not as effective on him now?

    • If you use Filtertool you could replace the V4 data with that from V3 creating your own custom patch.

      • Thanks MentalMars! I’ll do just that.

  64. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I’d love to see Smaller, Lighter, Faster not affect weapons with only 1 round.

    In particular, the Infinity pistol, one of the best weapons in the game for an Anarchy Gaige, can’t be used by an Anarchy Gaige unless you also use a Neutral Necromancer class mod, because in order to take skills from the Ordered Chaos tree, you *have* to take Smaller, Lighter, Faster. And any kind of magazine size reduction makes weapons (such as Infinity) with 1 shot actually have 0 shots, and therefore be unusable.

    • You can either farm a lot or use an editor to modify your weapon;
      what you want is an infinity with increased magazine size.

      • Maybe one of the modders in the discord channel can help you with that.

      • What editor would you use for that? I don’t think the one I have can do anything like that.

        Also, @MentalMars – thanks, I’ll check that out, see if anyone would be willing to help.

  65. I really wish THERE would be something THIS COOL.FOR platform players cuz this just shows that once again,U have to have a computer to EVER TRULY SEE A GAMES REAL PERFORMANCE OR WHEN U KNOW PROGRAMMING AND CODE.

  66. So, after a couple of tries, I managed to make it work. More or less.

    Automatically picking up Eridium works, and some guns do have different skins,
    but it seems to me that some talents I see in-game, and talents I see on the BL2 skill calculator site (and also in the patch.txt file) differ. For example, Maya’s “Mind’s Eye” says +accuracy in the talent calc,
    “[skill]Accuracy[-skill]” in the txt, but in-game it says “Melee Damage”. My testing didn’t show an increase in accuracy either, so I guess it’s not the text lying to me.
    Is this a bug?

  67. I managed to get it partially working, installing it (4.0) manually.

    Auto-picking Eridium works fine, and some guns do have different stats/skins I’ve noticed, so I thought it was working perfectly.
    Yet for some reason a few talents do not work. For example, Maya’s “Mind’s Eye” is supposed to give accuracy+crit, it says so on the BL2(UPC) talent calculator and in the patch.txt also, but in-game it says “Melee Damage” to me, and my testing shows it’s not just the card lying to me, it really doesn’t increase accuracy.

    Have anyone else encountered this issue? And is there a way to correct it?

  68. I want to re-enable stuff from the 3rd community patch such as the bigg thumprr so I got the filter tool but when I open it, it crashes on me before any window can pop up. I am using mac. I don’t know if I’m supposed to open it a different way.

  69. Hey, I think I found a mistake. In the patch notes you said, that the Stalker COM boosts Velocity instead of Counter Strike. However, I found that the Disturbed Stalker COM boosts Rising Shot and Velocity instead of Rising Shot and Followthrough.

    I think you just switched the order in the Patch file, because I swapped the order of both skills in the patch file and now the right ones are boosted by the COM.

  70. Was the cobra given an increased chance to drop by the bikers in the beatdown or was it put into a boss lootpool? I looked through the changelogs and saw it was buffed but couldn’t find its drops changed

  71. hey there, just wondering. what are the current percentage drop for the grog nozzle from the gold golem?? i only ask as it says the the drop has increased from removing the other legendary’s from the loot pool but i have done the golem run 50 times and i have still not got 1 yet. apart from this i think everything so far has been a brilliant yet fair changes to the game

  72. i cant find anything in my willow game folder starting with willow, it all just says default and in the default input there is no console key, how would I resolve this?

    • try the filtertool it solves “everything”. Also the latest patch is build to work with it so you can toggle specific changes.

  73. Does the blackhole drop affect norfleet drop chance from Hyperius? I think i have the worst luck getting max seraph from farming him alone but get no norfleet (nor shreddifier) but 15-20 blackhole. Also the chance of other seraph apart from tattler, retcher and evolution to drop from him seems too low imo.

  74. I have followed step by step with filtertool and hex editor a couple of time but my Borderlands2.exe file gets removed every time I run it, and Im forced to verify the integrity of files in steam as to get it back. Any suggestions?

    • not sure what makes your file to be removed

    • Turn off Steam Cloud for Borderlands 2 ONLY. By doing this, Steam will not replace the .EXE every time you boot the game.

  75. Great patch overall, got a complaint about the installation instructions though:
    I used the FilterTool method, but the instructions on that part are incomplete, you still have to open up console and do “exec patch.txt” every time you start the game. This procedure is not mentioned on the first section, while the Automated BoderlandsPatcher and Manual both mention it.

    So I follow the instructions for the filter tool, fire up the game, I had my Salvador up front so I boot him up and check his “Hard to Kill” skill, it listed 0.5% health regen at level 5, so I knew the mod wasn’t applied correctly.

    I come back to this page and decide to look up the manual procedure, I skim over the hex stuff as the FilterTool supposedly has already done that for me, and then I see the Console instruction to “exec Patch.txt” (Console isn’t case sensitive btw). I boot the game back again, open console, enter “exec patch.txt”, game has a stutter, I load up Sal and check his skills, Hard to Kill is now saying 1.0% health regen, which is my cue that it’s working.

    Also, applying the patch while ingame will cause a crash.

    That’s my experience with the 3 times I’ve loaded my game so far, the fact that I have to open up console and enter that command every time I wanna play will result in me forgetting it from time to time. Though from the look of things the patch seems to be harmless when it comes to having play sessions without it.

    Since I’m lazy and I don’t wanna have to remember to type that command every time I’m looking for a way of having that thing auto-execute every time the game is started. The page: mentions a tool named ExecLoader.bat right after FilterTool. Anyone got any idea how it works? Instructions are the “Figure out at your own risk” type due to how barebones they look.

    • Unfortunate, I have no idea how it works.

      But my advice is just to keep on playing with the Patch and executing it every time. After some time you’ll get used to it. Trust me.

  76. I keep trying to use FilterTool, but I don’t have the Borderlands2.exe file. I have it downloaded from steam and followed all the steps to use FilterTool properly. Any fixes to this?

  77. Hi I’m currently having issues on installing the patch, I have downloaded the most recent Patch update and the most recent Filtertool. I am currently stuck on the point of running Filtertool with Java. I have downloaded Java Runtime Environment and installed Java. But whenever I click to open Filtertool with Java I get an error popping up on my screen as

    Unable to install Java

    There are errors in the following switches:
    “C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Borderlands2\Binaries\Filtertool.jar”;.

    Check that the commands are valid and try again.

    I hope this provides someone with enough information to help me, and if not just reply and ask for any more details you need.

    • You could check the FAQ if that helps. If not contact one of the creators on discord.

  78. Hey, MentalWars! I have my patch installed properly, everything’s where it’s supposed to be, but sometimes when I load up the patch on the console, I get two error messages: “Unrecognized class or object Transient.SparkServiceConfiguration_6”.
    It doens’t always happen, either, which is very strange. I’m linking a screenshot of the messages, too.

  79. Hey MentalMars,
    i get that error too “unrecognised class or object Transient.SparkServiceConfiguration_6”
    im using 4.0.17.
    i even deactivated my antivirus to try if it blocked anything.
    i hadn’t found any solutions on google.

    thanks for your reply


  80. oh and i get it twice per execution of the patch
