Default Your Thoughts On Saturn

I dont like him...

I just wanted to get some opinions on what people think of him. (or make me feel comfortable that more people despise him).

he's slag immune, which can be a real spanner in the works for those people running through UVHM. all of a sudden your best tactic is now useless.

his shock blasts have a super high fire rate with what seems to be a bit of splash damage to occasionally hit you around corners.

his homing rockets pretty much means FFYL for me. all the time...
his homing drones are ok i guess, i just use a high FR and high mag size gun to take them down.

i struggle with him with every character except Sal. maybe you guys have some tips. but i'd prefer it if these tactics didn't involve the bee. i'd love to hear some suggestions also, where are his crit spots?

It is a lame bullet sponge boss. What I do is to spawn it and quickly run back to the New-U Station and just camp there and slowly shoot it's health with corrosive equipment down. Lame marathon but it works.

Saturn is a complete hell, even in Normal and TVHM. I'll probably just run past him on UVHM, as he is simply not worth it. Terribly designed boss, IMO.

If you're going to make Slag a necessity, then don't make huge walls of HP which can't be slagged.

ugh, that sounds tedious. i've actually tried doing that, but for some reason, he just explodes when i leave his area. then i go back in thinking he gibbed and died, but then he respawns again...

I run to the rock to the right of the bridge he lands on. If you make him go to one side and you go to another, because he's so big bits of him stick out for you to shoot and he won't shoot anything at you because it would just hit the rock. It can take a bit of practice but it's not that difficult

You have to run around the house, also in and out the shed.

He is slow, which is the weakness you'll be milking when you run around the house to get behind him. The real issue now would be the homing rockets, but you can get away with them by going into the shed.

I don't know if this helps but it's how I always do it.
Healing grenades can help if you take damage and don't have any healing skills, and they are homing.

IMO, Saturn earns raid boss status because he has many attacks, quite a lot of health and you can't slag him. Worst thing is, he is never mentioned in the story and is hard as hell yet Wilhelm acts like the toughest thing ever and can be taken out in 10 seconds. Well done Gearbox!

Wow, I didn't realise he came across as this hard. I have not struggled on him since my first couple of runs and maybe as Gaige in TVHM as all my corrosive weapons were crap. Still killed him. Took about 7 tries.
Just outrun him, he is slow and needs to turn around to face you.

I don't really know where his crit spots are.

Which character are you playing as, paltifier?
