Magic tool?

Let’s not get into discussions of things that violate forum rules, please.

@WitchersInc - not sure what platform you’re on. You can sometimes recover a lost character if you act quickly, but the details are highly platform specific.

I own it on both xbox one x and PS4 pro. All good taking a break from it anyway. Have a great day and stay safe.

So for future reference: if you have cloud sync (always on for XB1) and you experience a crash that might have corrupted a save file, pull the internet connection, delete the local save game, and then reconnect and sync from cloud. The goal is to get the file replaced before the system goes and syncs the corrupted file back up to the cloud. On PS4 you can also make your own backups on USB. (I’d do that on XB1 if the stupid thing let me.)

Yeah, this happened to me too some days ago on the PS4 version of the Handsome Collection where I lost a level 31 Zer0 – the Borderlands games are weirdly crash-prone for some reason, 3 in particular – although this is the first time it’s lead to save file corruption – and far as I remember, always when the game is loading up a new region. Wasn’t a very high level character, so it wasn’t a huge loss, so I guess you could say the lesson it taught me is “use the online save upload feature from time to time”. I mean… doing this took a couple of minutes at most for all three releases, so it’s not like this is a huge, time-consuming ordeal either. Yeah, it shouldn’t be necessary, but… well… the bigger and more complicated games get, I guess.

Cloud saves are merely one way to create a backup. However, copying the profile AND character to a USB stick is also suggested. I try to alternate the saves between the two sources on PS4. One never knows when a save goes bad, and since the System does not tell you when the file is bad on the hard drive (until it is too late), it is always prudent to have two backup sources.

Update (January 2021): A level 70 character generated a corrupted file when transitioning the barrier from Pyro Pete’s bar and the Beatdown. It wiped out a successful completion of the Pyro Pete the Invincible milestone. That was horrible, but I used a backup that was several hours old to restore the character. The CE-34878 bug was the culprit. I have seen this happen ten other times, but the save file did not get corrupted in the past. Other times it has happened when you enter the Sanctuary on your first long mission. The game does not execute the Scooter cut scene reliably.
Remember- save early, save often. I wonder if the hard crashes caused some of my friends to totally quit the game. One guy tried it for a day (Sunday), and never returned. He was battling Tinder Snowflake at the time.
