Here’s how i totally reset my badass rank on BL2 (The Handsome Collection)
Some steps may not be needed but this is what i did from start to finish… I merged several guides together as not a single one worked alone for me.
- Head to Settings > Storage > Delete the profile save for BL2. (Optional for Characters).
- Head to Applications Save Data Management and DELETE ANY PS+ BACKUP PROFILE SAVES.
- Head to Network and untick “Connect to Internet”
- Start the game while offline and create a new character. Pause the game as soon as you gain control of it. (The moment you see claptrap digging)
- Connect to PSN while you have that character loaded. (Middle button > Settings > Connect to Internet & Tick it)
- Head back to the game and change the lobby from offline to online.
- Earn a Badass Rank (This works better on a new character the hidden symbol in the 1st room where claptrap is will help with this.), I also had a random join my game i don’t know if this affects things (We also had a duel as well for a 2nd badass rank).
- Quit and save the game.
- Head to Applications Save Data Management and upload new profile to PS+ Cloud
Heres a video of it no longer syncing and granting me tokens
Man it felt good to get it fixed so i can play normally (Hope this helps others).
WARNING: doing this will reset your golden keys down to 1.
