    Caustic caverns is great fun.

    I currently have masses of side quests to do in the dust and highland regions and keep getting distracted by other ones, or facets of others nearby.

    :)

    I love this part of loot-em-ups.

    I am also finding some really interesting weapons and shields now, and I'm still only at lev 20. I'm holding on to too much stuff because of this so will have to decide what to bank and what to have on me.

    You just never know what you're about to walk into though, so I feel I should be prepared with many variants/mods. 27 slots is not enough after the luxury of a maxed backpack in the first game!

    The Arms Dealer side mission can fuck off, stupidly tight time limit for a solo player and it respawned loads of the enemies on my third attempt! Bastards!

    Strange, as it seemed to relax the time added for each "collection" for me, doubled to around 40 seconds instead of 20 on the second attempt. There's a Eridian artifact from an Ellie quest reward that helps too.

    Also, are you a secret boss ? King, Donkey, Kinky.....? :D

    Fuck. I think I know the relic you mean that would help here.

    I got, and sold, it last night /o\

    Anyone picked up that nagging sniper rifle? Does a good amount of damage, but every time you kill someone or reload it starts berating you.

    "There are children out there who can't afford ammo you know!"
    "You've just made another orphan!"
    "If you were a better shot you wouldn't need to reload!"

    I was using it until it glitched out and continued to have a go at me even after I dropped it in the storage bank.

    The boost one? I sold that ages ago as I find boosting often sends me crashing into a wall!

    I wish I was a secret boss! Still on the look out for Donkey Mong so I can get that achievement and show it off with pride!

    I did that quest last night. Failed the first time but had the bright idea of leaving my vehicle near to the 3 objectives that are closest together. Upon restarting the quest you can then teleport straight to the vehicle, thereby Saving yourself a big chunk of time.

    Did it with around 30 seconds to spare.

    Oh, good plan razer, I think I'll try that tonight to get it out of the way if it's a tough one.

    @PearOfAnguish I love that the whole thing was an xkcd reference.
  • Deleted user 4 October 2012 11:35:31
    I'm no leet gamer but the arms dealer mission is easy enough with the default racer, just need to make sure you know the correct route an clear the enemies before you make the good run.

    Protip: Leave one vehicle at outlook and teleport to it after you got the one at the Stalker Den.

    @ecureuil Where is it? I thought I'd explored that area pretty comprehensively.

    Question for any sirens out there; should I go with Chain Reaction or Cloud Kill in the Cata tree? I can't make up my mind.

    Genius. Shame I didn't think of that last night!

    Did you find the Minecraft easter egg? It's great. :)
    No I missed that. Annoyingly, I was right in the area you described later whilst doing the mine cart side quest last night, so could have found it no problem.

    I guess I'll have to pop back, is there any decent loot to make it even more worthwhile?

    My melee based Assassin got crunched in the zoo and against BW boss on 2nd playthrough. I got BW down to 1/4 health a few times but in downed state my health seemed to drop twice as quickly at that stage.

    It is times like that you wish you had a turret or two hitting that bitch.

    And once you are in the zoo there is no way out without killing BW,unless you join someone elses co-op game.

    Don't ask why, but there are some crates halfway up, to the right as you enter. Crouched on top of them, you seem to avoid a lot of attacks. Might be bullshit, but it's worked on two characters.

    Yeah, I soloed Bloodwing by crouching behind a box. Don't think I took a single point of damage. Getting to that boss was the hardest part.

    Did Arms Dealer on Tuesday. My advice:-


    Go near the first mailbox to trigger the locations of the rest but don't collect the arm from it.

    If you're concerned about enemies slowing you down, clear out the areas first and when you return on the collection run they won't be there to bother you.

    There are three close together, house on the hill, stalker cave, and robot outpost (don't know the names). Leave the vehicle close to stalker cave.

    Start at house on the hill, fall down to stalker cave, drive to robot outpost (you may want to plan the route there first), then drive to water's edge (you will drive across a pond to get there), then back to the first mailbox. This way when they're all collected you have time to run for the depository.

    I got my first orange weapon "in the wild" (already had an orange shield from a quest reward) the other night. A level 18 Torgue shotty with high dmg and a tight firing cone. Working well for my lvl 23 Commando.

    It was from a quest but dropped by the boss, not an explicit reward. If you don't want to know which, don't hover. Slap Happy - Kill the thresher that took Hammerlock's arm.

    It's not mentioned in the wiki, though, so probably random and I have the rare items artifact equipped.

    I killed him and didn't get any orange goodies. In fact the only orange one I have is that firey shield that everyone gets.

    There's a similar glitch on the talking shotgun that continues a-whoopin' and a-hollaring' when you've switched to another weapon.

    I've never noticed Chain Reaction doing much use (and I have it maxied-out) but Cloud Kill is very handy ! Bear in mind it only takes a single point, it doesn't level up, meaning you'll have to put points into Chain Reaction or Backdraft to reach the upper tiers.
