    Borderlands 2 has been hit by a nasty virus that affects game saves, known as the 'Graveyard.sav' virus. It's been propogated throughout the Borderlands 2 community by people who play public co-op games. Strangely, the virus can even be spread among friends who have played with random players in a public game too. It's thought that the bug originated within the modding community.


    Here's the key thing: "If you want to prevent this, you have to make sure you're not playing with randoms, and that everybody you play with isn't playing with randoms, AND that it isn't currently effecting anybody in your group. Along with that, MAKE FREQUENT BACKUPS, and if you are on 360, do not backup to the Cloud, as it will sync with your HD saves and your backups will be overwritten, apparently. Memory card or USB drive is best."


    Just thought I would let people know about this virus in Borderlands 2 being found. There is a video of it on youtube.com

    There is the link.

    DON'T **** ABOUT WITH BLACK WEAPONS. It has probably something to do with that plus the new update. They are, after all, hacked weapons. Try and keep it legit online, or hack weapons that are legit. Personnaly this hasn't happened to me but try and keep thing believable ;)

    Black Rarity. Sorry must modify it. You know, the multi-elemental weapons that must be put back in the bank before quitting...

    How do you know that the black rarity weapons are the virus?
    And the patch that came out today was to resolve the graveyard.sav issue among other things like

    Fixed player first-person arms appearing too far up or down the screen when in horizontal/vertical split mode.
    Fixed players losing ammo when reloading a savegame with max ammo and a stockpile relic equipped.
    Fixed the vendor UI sometimes showing a count of 1 less item in the player’s backpack than is actually there.
    Fixed fast travel stations from downloadable content sometimes disappearing when loading a saved game.
    Fixed players getting stuck in a white box when two people try to travel at once and one is in a vehicle.
    Allowed players to trade with each other when at maximum backpack capacity if they’re trading the same number of items with each other.
    Fixed clients sometimes losing access to fast travel stations unlocked during co-op progression.
    Fixed the favorite/trash icons on inventory items sometimes disappearing when scrolling the inventory list.
    Added safeguards against the game getting stuck on a ‘Saving…’ prompt when a client with a splitscreen player saves and quits the game under specific rare circumstances.
    Fixed the “has abandoned your struggle!” message sometimes appearing with no player name.
    Fixed mini-map fog-of-war sometimes not uncovering correctly when first loading a saved game as a client.
    Fixed co-op players sometimes spawning at different places after a level transition.
    Fixed an error that could sometimes occur when trying to join a game where the host had recently returned from a downloadable content area.
    Fixed an error where clients would sometimes see certain weapons firing in incorrect directions.
    Fixed a blocker in the “Do No Harm” mission and repaired users already affected by the bug.
    Fixed an issue with savegames sometimes causing the game to stutter / freeze and repaired saves already affected by the bug.
    Made the user’s inventory not jump to the top of the list when using a customization item.
    Fixed a bug with shields that reduce the player’s maximum health not displaying the amount of health reduced on the item card.
    Fixed a bug where some challenges would sometimes re-complete levels 1 through 5 over and over again, granting the user additional ranks and tokens.
    Enemies affected by a Siren’s Thoughtlock ability may now be damaged by other players.
    Fixed an issue where players could sometimes lose their third and fourth weapon slots. Characters who have already lost these slots will be repaired the next time they are loaded.
    Fixed an issue where players were sometimes unable to pick items up after another player had bulk-picked-up a nearby item.
    Fixed occasionally skipping players being added to the “players met” list.
    Fixed the Taiwanese currency not displaying correctly in the in-game marketplace.

    Black Rarity BL2 Loot and Weapons Chat. ... They're officially the "bullshit" rarity in game, and any gun with that color is 100% hacked.

    Well, I just found this and I didn't know that the patch was supposed to fix this because it wasn't included in the patch notes, so I created this thread to let people on these forums know about this virus.
