Been seeing a lot of negativity towards the new update with reasonable complaints that are worth bringing up, however for me I have found the game to be way more enjoyable and balanced. I am a huge fan of trying out new builds, particularly with Zane.,and I have been offered much more viable ways of using some of the old guns that were completely unusable pre-patch. For instance, I have created a new build focussed on the vanquisher (which is seriously good now), something I would never be able to do with the 12,500 health and without the buff to the gun itself. This is just one example. I think gearbox have delivered great with the feedback they have received and I just hope that people give it more of a chance as opposed to dismissing the whole game after less than 24 hours of this patch being out. Please also remember this is only phase 1.
As for the Takedown, yes, it’s difficult. I’m assuming that most of you went straight to it on M10 without first getting used to the spawns and the new mechanics. Of course you will get frustrated. Once you ease into it again, give it time, it will become easier and you will work out new ways to complete each area efficiently. I would however agree that some of the enemies have way too much health and I do hope that Gearbox address this, but don’t completely rule the content out. try it on a lower mayhem level, even normal mode and work up towards the higher mayhem levels. There was no way I could complete the Maliwan takedown for the first week on the highest mayhem level.
I am looking at this from a completely un-biased perspective, and hope that some of you can be a tad more patient with this new content. In my opinion, this takedown is fantastic and I am so happy that this FREE content is in the game
