I’ve solo’d Crawmerax a few times with my Siren just by cheesing the heck out of Phasewalk, hiding behind the pillars, and eventually whittling him down. But I’d like to do it more quickly and stylishly, so I’ve watched a number of YouTube vids out there for guidance. But what I see Craw do in the vids doesn’t look anything like what I see playing on PS3. In so many vids, he just kind of meanders around the field, happily exposing his back crit spot and generally not pushing very hard on the player. But in my experience, he turns to face me almost instantly and then beelines toward me 95% of the time. Even if I’m playing patiently and abusing Phasewalk and the pillars, I’ve sometimes ended up blowing out all his crit spots except the back, leaving him at <5% health, and then was just totally unable to get a clean enough shot on his back to finish him off.
So were there any changes to his behavior at some point? Most of the vids are quite old now, of course. And almost all of them are on PC (because it’s so much easier to record, I assume). I just can’t reconcile what I see in videos with what I see in the actual game on PS3.
