    so, im attempting to use this with my new borderlands 2 game, no DLC’s. And for a while i kept getting the logging not enabled error. i finally figured out how to fix that, and i get this.

    An exception was thrown (press Ctrl+C to copy):

    how do i fix this…?

  4. Skrypto says:

    None of my modded bank guns show up, no matter what I change, I haven’t found one that works. I can only manage to create and keep 100% legit guns using the editor. I am wondering if anyone else is having this issue. If any of my gear has one “unsupported value” mark beside it, it never shows up in my bank. (and yes I made sure they are in my bank) Am i missing something obvious here? I try making guns from scratch and it wont work, I try copy/pasting BL2 codes and those wont show up in my bank.

    I am going to try a fresh reinstall tonight, hopefully that works, im thinking maybe one of my dlc’s is causing the problem.

  5. SandManMK4 says:

    i cant seem to get this working if someone can e-mail me a new save of a siren or commando that would be nice thx (

    • TiTaN says:

      If you have the program on the desktop it wont work when you try to open it I encountered this problem at first but once I put the program into a folder and opened it from there it will open without a problem it might be a little slow to load but it works. Other wise I don’t know how to help

  6. mid level goddess says:

    Hey I just want to say first, thanks for your work, it’s really awesome.
    My only issue is, now that I applied the unlimited ammo, I got the Culhainn, and the other guns like mission guns, ex: the grog gun, they all say ‘no ammo’. How can I fix that?

  7. xog hammerzz says:

    I download it it shows on desktop but when I click it nothing comes up. message me at

    • DOMIN8 says:

      Have you extracted all the files from the .zip to a folder on your PC? If so, and you still aren’t getting it to start, you may need to repair or re-install your .NET Framework 4.

  8. Austin says:

    Im having the same problem as Shane

  9. THE_SMALL_CHILD says:

    I have the latest version of the save editor and I’m not what version of Bruteforce (if there is a later version, please tell me). I decrypted the file, edited only the currency and what skin/head my character had, saved the file and re-encrypted it. When i try to load it up, the game says “This saved game is corrupt and cannot be loaded. You should delete this file”. Could I have done something wrong? I am on PS3 by the way.

    Please tell me how to fix this because its been like a few days of me trying to figure it out myself cause normally i wouldnt have a problem with this kind of thing. Even tried making a brand new character save and makeing a new charactern on the game itself and nothing seems to want to work for me.

  11. THE_SMALL_CHILD says:

    Can someone give me a list of tools I need to edit and a link to a video that shows how to edit or precise instructions on how to? I have not been able to edit anything with my PS3 saves properly since I downloaded the latest save editor and changed my edition of Bruteforce to a later one.

  12. Dan Fern says:

    I don’t have a pc/laptop to use this editor and I was just wondering wether there was an android version of this for my tablet or if there was a way I could run the editor on my tablet.
    thanks for any help with this matter.

  13. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs
    really nice, keep iit up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later.

  14. Brandon says:

    Hi, I have downloaded BL2 SE and every time i got to install it, it says that I need Framework V4.0 yet ive already downloaded it off of MS website and restarted my PC so it could make the changes. What can I do? Thank you in advance if anyone can help

  15. Kayden says:

    When I try to give myself unlimited ammo it works for the most part only thing is it adds a really long delay to my grenades. I’ve tried using a different type of grenade but its the same deal, any ideas? I’m on pc.

  16. Jeepstyle says:

    I know this has been brought up once already but, has there been any focus on the Vita version yet? Is it a possibility?

    • Rick says:

      I’d need samples of saves from the Vita version (decrypted!) for it to be at all a possibility.

      • Jeepstyle says:

        Ok, there are a few utilities out there. I’ll try to decrypt and I assume I can just email it to you.

  17. david says:

    Ok man so I got it and it worked a few times for the codes but every time I try and get weapons and items now it doesn’t work I use legit codes that have worked before but doesn’t now Idk why. It all I get is I have to start a new game every time and I start with no guns or items other than the regular gearbox gun I get. Any ideas or a link to codes that actually work please email me thanks

  18. Mardukco says:

    I got a problem with this editor.
    I,m on a pc and try to add weapons and upgrade my level, but nothing seems to work.
    The savegame editor opens just fine, let me change everything, but as soon as i load the savegame ingame nothing is changed.
    I even tried to give my character another head and skin, but this won’t work either…

    hope somebody got a tip for me,

    Regards, Mardukco

  19. Slim says:

    Hello, i have been trying to make 6 (all different) new characters at level 1 that can start Ultimate Vault Hunter (playtough 3) and i have failed, i have wasted many hours. Could someone explain to me how to do it or do it themselvs and upload? i am using steam version.

  20. tshark says:

    it does not let me open. it says that it is not responding

  21. Countfunkular says:

    the prefix and title doesn’t work ( it doesn’t give me any choices) they don’t pop up. can you sent me a xbox 360 gibbed or make one for xbox please it would help countless modders.

    • DOMIN8 says:

      You don’t need to put anything in the Prefix and Title sections as the game will automatically name the item once you go in game. Also, the current version works perfectly fine for 360 saves.

      • sr says:

        Are we sure about this? It used to work fine, but I have a couple of items at least where the prefix is not updating in game. My Two Fer Maggie, for example, should now say Trick Shot with the Tech 3 accessory.

        • sr says:

          Looks like items in use have to be moved to the backpack for the new prefixes to apply (happens right away in-game).

          There’s still some discrepancy between shotgun accessories (on my Heartbreaker, anyway). Tech 2 give the Tech 1 skeet accessory and prefix, Tech 3 gives the Tech 2 critical accessory and prefix, etc. Minor stuff and consistent, at least.

  22. iMPAK540 says:

    Having an issue loading my savefile from XBox 360, when I attempt to load I receive the error “Failed to load save:invalid or unsupported version” I have tried extracting the file in both modio as well as horizon… neither seems to work… any suggestions?

  26. Angryglock says:

    Does the Backpack Tab Right Click > Bank work for anyone? It’s not working for me. It does nothing. The reverse also does not work. Bank Tab Right Click > Unbank.

    • lakich says:

      Same here.
      You need to manually copy the code, past it on the other and delete the extra item.

      • Angryglock says:

        Make sure the game is not running at all. If you leave it open the file will not save.

  28. Chris says:

    Any progress with the PS vita? I tried to use my save file uploaded from the vita to the computer but it didn’t work. Really hoping you can get it working.

  29. Schurge says:

    Are there plans to look into making this worth with the Vita version?

  30. Schurge says:

    Are there plans to look into making this work with the Vita version for those of us without a PS3? I am trying to figure out how to access the cloud from my computer but it doesn’t seem possible.

  31. RAMPAGE says:

    How come when I put in a certain level my character xp bar doesnt go up? (lvl 47 to 49 and my max level is 72 because I have both addons)

  32. cirdec94 says:

    Hey everyone 😉
    Just a little question, how can “tell” to Borderlands 2 that i’ve completed this or this quest ? 🙂
    Thanks 😀

  33. Lostinthought560 says:

    Hi, when i edit my save in gibbed, i usually just level sync my inventory and max out my cash, torque, and seraph crystals, and wen i load the save none of the changes stick. Ive had this problem before and it thought it was that gibbed wasnt up to date, but this time im stuck. Im on the 360 and i use horizon, and i save and rehash everytime, any help would be appreciated

  34. zombiekiller says:

    can you mess with badass ranks at all?

  35. zombiekiller says:

    can you mod the badass ranks?

  36. GC says:


    I have try to use the tool and I had no problems, everything seams to be okay but when I try to load the character on the XBOX it does not appear?
    I have followed many YouTube video but without any success.

    any help would be much appreciated…

  37. andrew says:


    try creating new weapons/ items, some of them just shows up in red and cannot be created

  38. Batman2.0 says:

    Hi, I read a few comments regarding this working with the Vita save file. I think I have a solution to those who are asking this question. You can use cross-save to save your characters from the PS Vita to your PS3 then mod the PS3 file and then download the character on your Vita.

    However, this method sucks for me because I don’t have a PS3 :P. I wanted to put my XBOX 360/PC save file into the Vita but it seems no one really cares about decrypting the PS Vita save files.

  39. Emmanuel says:

    I don’t know why but I can’t open the application. I’ve tried resetting the computer and it still won’t open. If anyone knows what’s wrong can you please help me 🙁

  40. Pixtheman says:

    Hi for some reason my gibbed save editor for borderlands 2 will not open please help

  41. Multra0 says:

    I was wondering if there was a way to change the quests that had been completed. When I tried it it wiped my progress and restarted the story line. Is this something I am doing wrong or does BL2 not like the quests being changed.

  42. Inferno says:

    It isn’t opening at Windows 8.

    Who can help me?

    send me an email:

    • DOMIN8 says:

      A lot of people seem to have issues with Win 8. It probably has to do with Win 8 having .NET Framework 4.5 instead of 4. I don’t know though as it works fine on my Win 8 laptop.

  43. neott says:

    Found you 😉

  44. KIDD989 says:

    My save keeps going straight to my itunes when i try to download from here. Is there another way or a way to fix that problem?

  45. Satvir says:

    Ok I need an advise I’m modding my BAR using the gpd editor and of course modding the melee but how how much should I mod it to for raid bosses, as I have it at 1million damage.

    Any suggestion

  47. kranzie says:

    hello developer
    i have some issues with this editor as follows

    1. how do i apply explosive damages to weapons/items as i can’t seem to make it work using “Elemental_None” from the elemental menu when modding or creating weapons/items

    2. how to get customized heads and skins for “poker night”, “loot chest” and “community day” in the backpack or bank using the editor? as all the drop down menus from creating weapons or items don’t contain any prerequisite (e.g. mechromancer, dragon keep, etc) needed for these customizations

    I have a question really previous itinerations of the editor allowed you to max out all your skills. This one seem to be reluctant to do so. Any ideas?

  50. Dion Starfire says:

    A couple of questions about creating items:
    (stupid) question 1: when creating a new item, what’s the next step after you’ve filled in all the fields? I can’t seem to find a complete or enter button, and simpyl hitting enter at the last field doesn’t seem to do anything.
    question 2: Is “manufacturer level” the same as “gear level” in duncanfogg’s gear calculator?
    question 3: what does game stage refer to?
    question 4: How does the “paste Code” button work? I’d expect it to popup an empty text box where you can paste code created from the item calculator, but clicking it doesn’t seem to do anything.
