I did some research after encountering this glitch and discovered that it has been known for years and Gearbox never fixed it. The glitch happens on all versions (PS3, 360, PC, PS4, XONE). During the objective “Install Felicity” of the mission “Let’s Build a Robot Army”, it’s possible to get permanently stuck and be unable to progress any further. Once the glitch is triggered, you’re basically screwed and must restart the game with a new character.
During the aforementioned objective, there’s a part where you’re ambushed by a bunch of Scavs in a room containing a furnace. Once you’ve killed them all, a large hangar door opens to let a few badass enemies enter the room. Now that the door is opened, you can continue in a hallway and reach the exoskeleton where you must install Felicity. Once you’ve installed her, you must escort her back to the Constructor. There’s a missable Badass Challenge associated with this part called “I Can Do This Alone”. By the way, I really hate missable challenges and I hope that they’ll never come back.
The glitch happens if you quit the game after the hangar door opens but before you complete the escort mission. Once you resume the game, the hangar door remains forever closed and you’re prevented from progressing any further. This is an extremely frustrating glitch that I’m surprised Gearbox never fixed despite the large amount of complaints all over the web about it. The glitch must also be quite common considering there’s a missable challenge associated with it. It’s when I reloaded the game because I failed it that I triggered the glitch. I assume that many people did the same and got stuck forever. Now I can no longer play the game.
It’s not the first time I’ve encountered glitches in BL:TPS, there are actually tons of them in that broken game, but it’s the first time I’m permanently stuck and unable to progress. I’ve been noting all the glitches I encountered while playing the game. I planned on posting them here to ask Gearbox to fix them once I completed the game so that I could compile them all in a single post. However, this glitch in particular made it impossible for me to finish the game and so I must post it now to get it fixed in priority.
Please fix this ASAP!
