Hello there. I’m aiming to do a 100 % completion run (get a character to max level and do all sidequests and probably aim to get all achievements).
I’ve only taken 1 character beyond level 60 before. It was a level 62 Mordecai that I quit after killing Craw for the first time. I don’t remember having too much trouble with enemies but they definitely got pretty tough in the end. I didn’t play much beyond trying to reach 61 and killing Craw so that was it.
Now I’m running a new Mordecai, currently level 60. I don’t have trouble with bandits but basically everything else seems to have hit the gym hard. I’ve an almost on level (57 I think) purple Hyperion sniper and it takes 4 to 5 headshots to drop a lanceman. The elemental lance badasses are total bullet sponges whether I’m going for their head or their tank. I’ve also got a slightly underleveled Penetrator which still does pretty nice damage on crits but it seems I have to unload, like, half my ammo reserve into a BA’s head for them to die. That’s a bit much.
Worst I’ve seen so far is Ajax who I tried tackling just now since I want to do the Bugged sidemission. Several headshots look like I tickled him with a feather and his rifle takes my shield down in 1 hit and kills me in the next 2 hits. WTF seriously? People complain about BL2 UVHM scaling but that’s cakewalk compared to this ****. Granted my shield is lagging 10 levels behind me but it’s the best one in capacity and recharge rate that I’ve seen so far from vendors or chests that I check frequently.
So, what do I need to do? Drop the non-elemental guns and start spamming fire and acid everywhere? Keep farming for a better shield that I can’t seem to find anywhere. Keep switching BW’s element for each and every enemy and just start spamming him everywhere? I’m sorry for the rantish way of asking this but I’m getting pretty frustrated by this grade A BS.
