How do save game spawn locations work in Borderlands 2?


  • QA Engineer

    I've been playing Borderlands 2 on Xbox recently (havent played the first yet) and am wondering how the save game works.

    If I hit Start and select Save and Quit from the menu then load my game again later it always returns me to the start of the level, meaning I have to go through and fight the same enemies again to get back up to where I originally saved. However, all my characters stats and items are saved.

    Is the save meant to happen this way? I would have thought you would have loaded at the closest New-U machine rather then all the way back to the start of the level



  • There are two types of save points: New U and Fast Travel (FT) stations.

    • If you die you go back to the last New U or FT that you went past.

    • If you save & quit and restart you'll go back to the last FT station.

    The FT and New U stations look similar until you activate them for the first time: then fast travel stations have a glowing globe over them once activated and can be used for travel. If the globe is orange you can travel away but not back to the station.

    Some levels and boss fights don't have a fast travel station, if you restart you go to the start of the level.
