Dear developers and Gearbox staff in general. I love the Borderlands series, been a huge fan since the first game. Borderlands 2 was the ultimate game for me for 2 years. I play exclusively on PC Steam version.
Recently I joined a few public Pre-Sequel games to level my character a bit more before the new DLC on March 24th, but what I found was players who’ve hacked their game to give them boosted stats, and in one case a player hacked the game such that it affected MY game. There are screenshots below to illustrate this.
The guy I joined in this example hacked his ammunition and money and it affected mine as you can see in my inventory below. (for the record $88M is much more than I ever earned in the game with all my characters combined). The money total even carried over into my single player game.
This next example was from today when I joined a level 52 UVHM game with my Wilhelm character. Another user as the Baroness was also 52 but as you can see they had many more skill points unlocked than you would normally at level 52.
I hope this doesn’t fall on deaf ears. Please keep this in mind when planning the next iteration of Borderlands, it really isn’t fair or fun for the rest of us.
