Default Ok, this is ridiculous.

Your game is infuriating. It's nearly impossible to play solo and it's infuriating to play multi. From enemies at the same level who one shot you to online players who've memorized the location of chests and care nothing about fighting or the story; this game makes me want to chuck my controller out the window.

I just played for a few hours alone as a Siren and I swear to god, 5 Buzzards in one area? Lone suicide bombers? What the legit f*ck? Do you people even stop to think that maybe someone doesn't want to or can't play online? I've heard that stupid ass Hyperion lady 8 times now. The balancing for solo play is beyond horrible.

Don't even get me started on the Multiplayer. There's never any chests that aren't picked clean by the time I fight my way through swaths of enemies the others left behind to get to them. I didn't even know the Warrior dropped a gauranteed legendary until my fifth time playing the quest when some guy told me that another guy had taken my Legendary and left the game. Just....dammit! Why'd you make it so veterans can screw us little guys over so hard?

Funny, I think the game is too easy solo, except some of the raid bosses.
You do know that enemies become harder the more players are in game right?
Also there aren't any enemies that can "one shot" you that aren't melee enemies. I know this because I run around with a Bee shield half the time and the capacity on that is horrid.

+1 99% of my gameplay has been solo. sure, there are some tough spots but everyone needs a little challenge now and then. Siren was my first character to get to 50 all solo. Find cover and take the guys out 1 by 1, and use phaselock as often as possible.

I have fun in Solo and MP. Though in MP I only play with my brother and we both have the same attitude towards playing.

We defeat everything we come across...unless in a car , then it can be iffy if we do or don't. Though He is a little more of a completionist then I am. He tries to complete the areas and challenges. I just try and complete all quests.

========

Try carrying explosive and flame guns everywhere you go. They help a lot.....a sniper rifle helps too.

Though we are only on playthrough 1.... on all our characters.

I don't have that much trouble solo but I don't try to use a support class for that.

Definitely agree with the multiplayer problems though. There's a pretty goddamn serious problem with a co-op game when its mechanics actively discourage co-op. I basically only play with friends for co-op now.

I've had plenty of problems playing Solo and it is more than 99% of my gameplay. This isn't the first FPS game I've ever picked up, too - it's just loaded with the most bullshit.

It's much more rewarding than a Call of Duty campaign on Veteran difficulty, I'll give it that. It definitely owns a home in that neighborhood of bullshit, though.

You heard the Hyperion lady as Siren 8 times now?

It also happened to me...with my Zerker. 8 times. Per area. Frustrating.
But then I took him up to 50, because determination, and now he owns ass.

Things will pick up later.

Are the buzzards challenging? Of course, and annoying.

But I find a technique that works, and go with it. Yeah I might die a few times, but it's not like I'm losing anything more than money. The currency in the game isn't really used for much except the random good vendor item and ammo refills. Most of my items I've earned from chests or missions.

The Siren is more of a support class, and as a result doesn't have a lot of head-on power. You have to use the class mods available to find a style that works for you and is effective as well. Don't just give up and rage at the devs.
