Borderlands 2 level cap increase issue

11 replies 247 views Edited Apr 3, 2013

I downloaded the update, got the dlc and started the game.  Nothing, my level 50 is not gaining any more.  What gives?  Do I need to be in the third playthrough or was it just a fluke?  Anyone else having similar issues?

I don't own BL2 yet, but I haven't heard about any issues involving the new patch/DLC.

From what I've read, it's the same as BL1. You can keep leveling up in the 1st playthrough.

 

Just to rule it out, you should try starting a 2nd (or 3rd) playthrough and see if it allows you to gain more XP.

If not, then obviously it's something else. (Try deleting and re-installing data.)

I haven't tried yet but one of my clanmates is HUGE into BL2, I'll send her a PM with a link to your question.  If something is up she will probably know.

There's two parts to the update: the first is the patch that allows the third playthrough and fixes a bunch of stuff, the second is a separate D/L (go into the store or the DLC tab in-game) that allows the leveling and adds some other things

I downloaded both parts and still having this issue. Away from the PS3 for tonight, tomorrow I am going to delete data and reinstall to see if it fixes my problem.

Mine's working fine, so I don't know what's up with you.

Reinstalling is always a good idea

did you have to start a new character or did it allow you to just keep the old one going? I just want to make sure I am not doing something incredibly wacky.

I'm still going with my characters.

None of my friends are reporting this at all. Are you sure you're not getting XP? The bar does not want to move until you gain a few thousand.

I could have sworn that I gained more than a few thousand but I will double check. I could be just stupid about this..............
