Yes, explosive or corrosive. Circle around him so you have a better chance of hitting the barrels. Also, it helps if you held onto the Kitten AR. He telegraphs the nukes with an alarm. Listen for the alarm and pepper the nukes with the Kitten. The unusual spread of the Kitten's bullets give you a huge chance of taking them out.

The fight is quite possible without the Unkempt Harold or the Bee. I used a Ravager on my first TVHM with my Commando.

also, destroy the fuel tanks with a gun that has a crit bonus - when they're destroyed he can't shoot nukes anymore.

I have the Hot Kitten. I love it, really powerful, but it is fire elemental.

BTW this Rex must be a nightmare to solo in UVHM !

1) Once he's active, run over the wall and back down the corridor
2) Use Longbow turret to distract him
3) Find a decent purple RPG which does explosive damage, or use DPUH, run forward, pound, retreat back down corridor when turret expires
4) Use the Sham (if you have one) and Logan's Gun (or other explosive pistol) to regen Rockets
5) Repeat the above steps
6) If you don't have a Sham, use the Bee and use the vendor to re-stock ammo

Yes he is!

I decided to play the Torgue DLC first so I am only level 52 but he keeps killing me before I get his health half way down. He is seeming immune to being slagged which isn't helping.

Cheesing it from the doorway is resulting in me getting killed by the reflected damage when i shoot him! I guess i need to use some weaker guns that can't kill me in one or two shots.

I hid behind the wall using the Deliverance shotgun (corrosive) with the Bee Shield.

Behind the wall and the gate, to the side, so you only have a tiny letter box gap and don't get reflected bullets or splashes. Corrosive sniper rifle + patience = you'll not lose a single hp.

It's easy to farm, google it.

But don't use it against Rex, that was a bad advice.
