Default Stuck on the "Plan-B" quest

So here is what i did:

I created a character and played to the point where you meet claptrap, then i quit the game and joined my friends who were level 12 and 13 in their game.

We played through the whole game and killed warrior.
My friends unlocked True Vault hunter mode, and i didn't so i decided to play solo and finish the quests i didn't complete.

This is where i got stuck- in the quest "Plan-B" where i have to go to Crazy Earl and buy something to get the third fuel cell.

The problem is that i have no more things to unlock from crazy earl, as i unlocked them all in the first playthrough.
Now i can't finish this mission, unlock True vault hunter mode, or my forth weaponslot.


Does anyone have any idea about how i can finish this mission without having to start a new caracter?

Or build up a second character and then, when you get to sanctuary, do a split screen game and do those missions in offline split screen as your character won't be under any duress while in Sanctuary.

Shouldn't have to do this though is the thing. Its just poor game development.

It doesnt matter, all you should have to do is talk to crazy earl and you should automatically get it, whether theres anything left for you to buy or not.

Thats how it does it on PT2 anyway when you had bought everything in PT1.

Poor game development doesn't equate to a small oversight.
I don't think they expected for you to play through to the end and then go back and do it again on the same playthrough.

However, if that carries over to PTs 2 and 2.5, I can see that being a massive issue.
EDIT: Which DigitalIP just stated isn't the case.

As i just stated, in PT2 when you had already bought everything in PT1, all you have to do is just talk to Earl and it gives it to you automatically.

if it doesnt then try reloading your save and talking to earl.
then try to place the part where its spose to go.

Earl says, 'buy anything and I'll throw it in free'. I guess he glitches in PT1, they must have made it so it works in PT2, but I guess it just glitches if you have nothing left to buy in PT1.

The previous game ran into similar glitches. The game is glitchy. Every game that I have bought for this current generation of video games has been glitchy. It is what it is.

im not even sure if when i did it in PT2 that it was even verified that i had gotten the part, i just talked to earl and went to do the rest of it and it worked.
