Max Backpack space?

#1SorrySleepingPosted 11/9/2009 1:15:27 PM
I thought the max was 42, but my Playthrough with Roland somehow got 48 space without cheating.

I'm not sure if it glitch and I got another Claptrap, or If I just missed a few.

Claptraps in P2 can reportedly give random backpack SDUs.

You start with 12 spaces. There are 10 claptraps that will give you a backpack SDU. Each backpack SDU gives you 3 spaces.

However, that's just playthrough 1. In Playthrough 2, the claptraps have a CHANCE of giving you another backpack SDU. I can confirm that simply missing that claptrap on playthrough 1 will NOT always yield a backpack SDU on playthrough 2. The chance that a claptrap will give you a backpack SDU on playthrough 2 is quite slim.

So the max amount of spaces you can have (going through both playthroughs) is 42-72. Most of the time, you'll end up with 42-48.

if its bothering you too much, change .ini file parameter. Its not considered cheating if it doesnt affect other players.

Hmm.

I wouldn't mind doing a zero slot run so you can only pick up gear you are going to use.

Yes, ini editing makes this a "bug".

Roland is still in the first playthrough, or I should say, just ended it with 48 slots.

I did jump into multiplayer at random points.

"Yes, ini editing makes this a "bug"."

Joining an online game can bug up stuff, possibly if the other players have edited ini's and whatnot, I'm not sure.
I played my Siren alone up to level 32, joined a match and the next time I played alone noticed I could hold 83.
