    Weapon and Money duplication trading glitch

    Thought I'd post a way a friend and I figured out how to duplicate gear in the game, we stumbled upon this purely by accident as he got disconnect from my game seconds after he had traded me a shield. When he logged back in we were surprised to find that he still had a copy of the shield in his inventory. Since that point we've used this glitch to duplicate any legendary or decent epic gear we get from bosses seeing as we've both worked hard to beat 'x' boss or area and having both of us taking the reward seems fair.

    What you need to do to get this glitch to work correctly is:
    Have a two player online game (not sure if this is even possible with split-screen...)
    Enter a trade (the person who isn't hosting the game should swap the items over because the game will save for the other player if the host leaves)
    Complete the trade and (whomever isn't hosting) immediately hits the PS button on their controller and exits out of the game.

    It also works if you are the host of the game and have gear you want to give to your friend, but the method is slightly more complicated and requires a fair bit of trust between you and the other player (seeing as you don't want them to run off with hard earned gear).

    Go to Sanctuary; and give the other player your gear by trade or simply throw it on the ground.
    Have your friend run down to where Marcus is and on the way up the stairs out of his shop the game will save again (thus giving them the information needed to make the duplication glitch work). Simply trade the gear back over again and have your friend quit from the game via the PS button. When your friend reenters both of you will have the gear/money.

    The reason why this method works is because when the game saves it takes note of all of the things within your inventory at a given point in time and if you quit out to the XMB it over-rides the 'safety' or 'anti-cheating' methods for preventing the duplication of gear. Until gearbox release a patch that automatically saves your content after a trade or if you throw gear on the ground this will work for anyone at any time. It's also a great way of giving low level gear to your alts, or helping out friends. As a side note it's not worth really doing it for money unless your desperate (which shouldn't happen end game as loot sells for so much) because all it does is make the costs of your deaths rise astronomically.

    It's actually much simpler than this. Just let the person host who u plan on giving gear to, drop said gear and then immediatley quit the game using the XMB. Not giving the game a chance to auto-save. Simple as that.

    Yes it does, and I would be shocked to see Gearbox patch this. Everyone and their mama knows about the glitch form Borderlands and if Gearbox wanted it gone it would have be corrected before 2 even came out.
