Very inconvenient if I may say. Only way around if you don’t have access to a recent save is to join a game just before it.
Which I happen to have one!
Turn out if you rush the dlc story with a low level character. It’s not very long to do and the drops are good. So you are welcome to make one and add your name.
Only have it on normal mode at the moment. I will make one on TVHM but maybe not right now. Played it a lot already lately.
Both normal and TVHM missions are available. Mayhem 7 or lower. As per request.
So if you need help. Leave a post here or send me a fr on PSN. Tag is the same Dr_Do-Little. Make sure you specify the progress blocker.
