Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! Save Editor (Revision 18)

Get the new version.
Some antivirus software is currently flagging Revision 18 as a false positive. If you’re having issues, exclude the save editor in your antivirus software.

  • Fixed Vehicle Steering Mode causing reencode mismatch.
  • Fixed Relic to Oz Kit.
  • Reimplemented packed item handling to improve handling of DLC items.
  • Updates to game info (โ€œHandsome Jack Packโ€) for the new Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! content.

    Thank you for the program.
    Help to correct the error. During the course of the main story, quest froze. As with your program, can reset the job and start again?

    • Don says:

      Yes, works great thanks Rick.

      • Andrew Pearson says:

        Don’t use this save editor for the time being. This one has a virus!! I haven’t found a virus in any other gibbed save editor but this one has one.

        • 5x11 says:

          There are no virus’ on this gibber, your AVG just has misidentifications from time to time, I’ve been using this since it was released and have had no issues running it.

  2. trav says:

    So I downloaded gibbed and wont open i click on it and it does nothing. i tried run as administrator and still nothing.???

  3. Yodawg says:

    Please someone help me I’m on PS3 and I keep getting the sha1 hash error

    • XxWonder_ModsxX says:

      Make sure you are changing it to a PS3 save and make sure it’s decrypted.

      • Yodawg says:

        I make sure that it’s on PS3 and that it’s decrypted. I literally do the same thing that I did for bl2 and it still works fine. I have even tried uninstalling and then reinstalling brute force but I always get the sha1 hash error

  4. Rob says:

    Sooo, any word on black weapons/ hybrid weapons? i love making them, but i am not sure if it is possible yet….
    Any future endeavors to fix this, or will it stay as is with no hybrid?

  5. WATUPDGA says:

    thanks for makin this, its awesome and it works great

  6. Nicolas says:


    I love your work !

    In Borderlands with last willowtree, you can see a preview of your weapon build (add by Ck).
    It will be cool on Gibbed Revision 19…

    In advance, Thanks

    Attempting to open saved file (r18), the following dialog opens:

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

    Then Norton wants to restart the system to “resolve this threat” (WS.Reputation.1 risk)


    • OlGranDad says:

      (red-faced) Never Mind ๐Ÿ™
      MS &Norton “protecting” me from myself…..”This file came from a different computer and is blocked yada yada yada” or something to that effect.
      Hit the “Unblock” button, and……….well……….never mind.

      Thanks for the great editors, Rick!!!!!

  8. Jackie Lantern says:

    Seems like the Dopplegaanger’s heads and skins won’t work correctly? Heads and skins for all other characters are working fine but it tells me his are invalid whenever I select one.

    • 5x11 says:

      Next to “Create a new weapon/item” there should be an arrow, clicking the arrow opens a menu with the doppelganger pack, click that and it should allow you to create items for that class.

  9. nerf123 says:

  10. Postea says:

    The Challenge list is implemented in the Editor. I want to reset my challenges , so I thought I could do the same as with the missions to jsut delete every challenge from the list. I also deleted everything in OneOffLevelChallenge… and LevelChallengeUnlocks. But on my char notzhing happened. As I looked again in tzhe savefile via editor I saw that the challengelist were reset. The other lists were not reset, but nothing changed on my char. As I do not understand that much about protoBuff I was not able to solve the problem. Everything else work well.

  12. Bilal says:

    When i use bruteforce for my ps3 saves and when i verfy my save it fails, and when i open it in gibbed after i decrypt it and yes ichanged the thing from pc to ps3 any help pleas? sorry for spelling

  13. Michael Warrick says:

    I’ve used Gibbed in the past but, I’m having an issue now. I had an Enforcer at Lvl 9 and I edited his level to Lvl 11, and now his xp bar won’t progress anymore, he’s just stuck at Lvl 11.

  14. artie99 says:

    I am having some issues. First when i open the zip file and i hit extract on the application my Bitdefender quarantines 2 or 3 things that are some .exe files. I believe that i turned my bitdefender off and now the application has turned into a .gzquar file and it is telling me that i don’t have the permissions to delete said file. Could really use some help with this thing.

  15. Nav77 says:

    Hello. So I used gibbed to get certain weapons and other stuff and i went to the game and noticed that everything is incredibly expensive. sniper bullets costs $3000!. can someone tell me whats wrong. please.

  16. Alberech says:

    Hi i got the same things like artie 99 :
    With F-secure (update 30/11) Trojan Generic.12228142 was found in the file :/

  17. Nathan says:

    OK, so I have used you B1 and B2 Gibbed editors and they have worked fine. TPS however won’t load your editor. Yes I have gone to Properties and unblocked it. Yes I have run as Admin. All your other ones were a download and extract and open. Any reason you can think of as to why Revision 18 won’t open and run for me? All I get when I run as Admin after the unblock is that I still don’t have permission to access folder.

  18. Nav77 says:

    Is it possible to equip more than 4 weapons. I somehow manage to do it for borderlands 2 where i was carrying 6 weapons. but i seemed to have forgotten how i managed to do that.

  19. nkk says:

    Wont work

  20. andrey says:

    Hi Rick!

    Something wrong had happend with save editor. Literally yesterday everything works fine. I can create and edit items, money, moonstones and so on. Today every save from saveeditor recognized by the game as corrupted.
    I’ve tried before downloading Jack addon and after, result is the same.
    I can send you my saves to analyze.

  21. coolabed says:

    when I extract the file my virus protection says it contained a Trojan Horse virus. if I delete the virus it gets rid of the exe. file????

  22. badfrog says:

    I have been trying to use this one and the one for BL2.
    they both open, I can open my save, everything seems to work, I save, but when I try to load the character in game, either it reverts to an earlier save, or shows as corrupted. (PC)
    I’m not making drastic changes.. I have a level 36 character and just synced all the items, that won’t even load

    • Demonshalo says:

      Was using it this morning now it’s saying—————————
      An exception was thrown (press Ctrl+C to copy):

      WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.

      To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.

      Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.

      To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

      So any ideas what happened????

      • Demonshalo says:

        For giggles disabled Norton and it worked fine.

        • badfrog says:

          this isn’t whats happening to me.
          the program appears to run just fine, but the save games are all listed as corrupt.
          happening with the BL2 editor and the BLTPS editor.

  23. Lambz says:

    I wonder if im the only one getting this, in BL2 this wasn’t an issue, but theres no pull down menu when switching from base game to DLC (Doppelganger items). It wont let me make DLC items otherwise. I re-installed it just make sure, what’s goin on?

  24. CDob says:

    I’ve used the BL2 editor plenty of times, but this is the first time I’ve tried to use TPS! editor and the save editor application won’t open after installation. I’ve noticed several other people with this problem, but I have yet to find a fix. I have already tried running as admin, redownloading the editor, restarting my computer, repairing the .NET Framework, and anything else I can think of. It is the latest version (rev. 18). My BL2 editor still opens just fine, but when I try to run TPS! editor I get a momentary loading circle and then nothing ever happens. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    • Nathan says:

      I have posted to this issue above as well. It seems a lot of us are having this issue. I also would like this issue fixed. I hope we can get some input from Rick soon.

      • CDob says:

        **UPDATE** After running as admin even with my antivirus disabled and the program unblocked, I was about to give up when I finally figured it out. In my case, the only problem was that the contents of the “ASSEMBLIES” folder were not extracted to the right place. I re-extracted them to the same folder as the editor application, and voila. Now the editor opens right up. It would have saved a lot of time and frustration if I had noticed this sooner, but hopefully this will help someone else out who might be having the same problem. Also, thanks Rick for all the work you put in so that everyone else can have fun!

  25. Mr. Muffin says:

    The editor worked totaly gread but today I want to open and the editor won’t open. What is wrong? I dont change anything…

  26. DavinKee says:

    Under the Raw Tab, one of the option is PlayerFlags. Anyone know what this is? I’ve looked for an explanation of this and cannot find it.

    Here is the data that’s under it:

  27. BananaPie22 says:

    Hi, I found an error message that pops up whenever I try to save my new game save file it says one of the files or one of its dependencies is not loading correctly. (Or something among those lines) Sorry if I’m just doing something wrong, please tell me if so. ๐Ÿ™‚


  28. matt says:

    The game refuses to show me some of my gibbed items. i mod my save, save it, put it back, and the game wipes it back like it wasn’t even there, putting the old weapons back.

  29. Rstar420 says:

    I extracted my gibbed save editor and try to open it but nothing happens, my mouse makes the loading icon and I have tried running as administrator and I am using windows 7, how do I fix this?

  30. Jarakaa says:

    Gibbed can unlock the Handsome Jack ? If he can, how ?

  31. josh says:

    I want to see unlimited ammo, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    • badfrog says:

      gibbed doesn’t do things that aren’t possible in game.

    • BarkBarkWoof says:

      If you mean that you’ll never run out set your black market upgrades high enough and your resources in the billions. If you mean to make a gun like the infinity pistol from B2 it doesn’t exist.

      Maybe after the first DLC. I’d love a Norfleet with the extra shot chance myself. I would shoot out six or nine rockets. Boy I miss that.

  32. Josh says:

    Hey, I can’t seem to make any of Jack’s class mods. Anybody else having this problem?

  33. Mackenzie says:

    I’ve never had an issue with Gibbed products before, but this time when I tried to download this revision I get this error

    Any ideas what is causing this?

  34. vCootz says:

    i know what i am doing i am experienced with gibbed but i am using revision 18 i am on 360 and i am getting the reencode mismatch error which was listed as fixed and my vehicle steering is also on traditional please i need help

    • warlordz26 says:

      i’m in the same boat all i get is “re-encode mismatch” for every save i open. i’ve looked everywhere for help and cant find anything. and now i cant find the older versions of gibbed so i can try to mod from them.all the videos are useless too.

  35. brandon says:

    ! C:\Users\Brandon\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\8BTTOI3W\ Cannot create C:\Users\Brandon\Desktop\Gibbed.BorderlandsOz.SaveEdit.exe
    Access is denied.
    Received this when trying to extract the files. Had downloaded this version of gibbed previously now its not starting up, deleted files and tried to redownloaded and this is happening. Should I wait for the next version of gibbed or what

  36. gregbrah says:

    is there gibb for mac?

  37. sallad says:

    Editor opens and works fine, but all saves are corrupted even if I make NO changes and just re-save vanilla save file with gibbed. Cant figure out why. Works on a pc sitting 3 feet away with the same hardware and same version, everything.

  38. Duus says:

    You should remove the “Mark item as Trash” feature, since that feature is removed from this version of the game.

  39. jerome says:

    Can someone please help me I’ve been trying to mod but every time I put my usb into my ps3 my files are corrupt I am making sure that I re encrypt the files befor saving them also I am using an older brute force because the latest version will not work I’m using version 3.8.15 I have never,had this,much trouble with the bl2 but any advice is helpful

  43. Steve says:

    Does this save editor allow for resetting mission progress?

    I ask because my level 34 Fragtrap is stuck in game. Door to area where I need to install Felicity to walk the legs to the main body will not open.

    • DropmAllNight says:

      Yes it can in the raw tab, you will have to click to find the right mission

      • DropmAllNight says:
