So my game has been freezing and I saw a few ppl on this board were having the same problem. First I thought it was the latest update. But I dug and dug. Turns out you have to use your BA points to fill out ALL of the BA skills. I have only been filling out 10/14. If you dont fill out all of your BA skills then you run the risk of game freezes. I lost my lv 3 zero due to this. Not a hard blow but it could have been significantly worse if I was playing w/ one of my lv 50s. If you are experiencing this problem here is a link to solve it.

If this doesn't help I'm srry. It seems to be what my problem is and seeing as other people have similar symptoms I thought I would share my findings. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Yeah, this happened to me, and I couldn't even play online til I got my stats evened out. Ironically enough, I was playing offline in PT1 when I turned on my console to find my BA ranks got wiped for a second time, but upon filling out all my bonus stats somewhat evenly after getting my BA rank restored by Gearbox, there was no freezing whatsoever after that.

I'm surprised gbx hasn't fixed this yet.

Does disabling the BAR upgrades prevent freezing temporarily?

I'll have to try that out. I'm only missing critical damage, so that should be easy enough to fix.

Also I highly, highly, highly suggest you back up your character saves to flash drive on a fairly regular basis.

this. I've played too many Bethesda games. That has got me into the habit of back ups.

From what I've researched that's a different problem. Its been plaguing players since the beginning of the pirate DLC I believe. Some people dont even have that DLC which means its in the compatibility pack i would think. They have released numerous patches trying to fix that bug with hit and miss results. My advice would be to go to here:
http://support.gearboxsoftware.com/anonymous_requests/new
and write your problem. See if they can help you directly. There is also a ton of people who are experiencing the same problem as you. Some have found fixes. Here is the link to the forum but just FYI its about 300pgs and a lot of arguing.

I wouldn't post it on Randy P.'s Twitter account. Apparently anyone who posts about that particular bug gets called an "Idiot Troll" by Pitchford himself. IDK if tha'ts true but that seems to be what the topic is about around pg 250. [IDK the exact pgs but it was pretty far in there]
