Forums: Index > Help desk > Weapons Disappearing

Today, Saturday, September 03, 2011 I was told to Update Borderlands but my LIVE was down so I had to decline the update and for some reason I got still got to play borderlands. But I went to play my Siren all her weapons and Shields and stuff were gone. I had dropped them all to show a friend Then picked them back up and I picked some up while we were on a quest and those were the only ones i got to keep, The ones I didn't drop. Its As if the new patch I couldn't even install was taking away my stuff for dropping them even though I picked 'em up long before we stopped playing. He was hosting and I think he quit like a nanosecond before me so that may have been part of it. I haven't been on Borderlands since. I hope I'm Posting this in the right place. I Thank You guys for any help or Advice you can Provide with this matter User:Necrosis97

What most likely happened is when you dropped the stuff to show your friend, either he/she or you were running around the area you were at and somehow auto saved without them in your backpack. You then did a quest but did not get near an auto save station. When your friend quite, you were basicly kicked from the game and your gear was not saved. I am not sure how the Quest loot stayed in your inventory.

The best advice i can give is to make sure you( and your party) dont move around to much when dropping loot to show people and save your game before exiting. A backup on a thumb drive is also recommended just in case.

If you need replacements you can try the trading forums.<--click me. Veggienatersml 04:07, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

your save may not be valid for live if the game is not patched. also some items were nerfed or prohibited by some of the more recent patches. try to back up your save(s) often. also ask that hosts let you quit first, this is more kind to your save and system (not gonna mention any names here fry).   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon   Wordpress shovel   Boston globe bullhorn  04:11, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

I would only add: keep playing. You will soon get lots of good new stuff, all better than the old. Dämmerung 05:03, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
