Determined in my quest to game some vague capability in playing Krieg, thought I would consult some advice from the experts on what gear would help to bring out Krieg’s awesomeness. Especially against some Peak minibosses. Do any of these guns sound good, and am I missing some better opportunities?
Slag bouncing betty/biddy or a Storm Front. Don’t get surrounded.
CC and Rough Rider. You can dodge the shock balls. A corrosive Hyperion Plasma Caster will work as well. That or an Omen.
Slag bouncing betty/biddy. Use the PC until she gets you into rampage mode, kill a midget with melee, then toss axes at her. The biggest trick is to keep her slagged. Get a Slagga if you can.
DPUH and/or Ogre for the turrets. Everything else should work fine.
Corrosive Pimp: aim at the joint on either of the front legs.
Unless you’re going with Hellborn, explosive weaponry is still your friend. The only enemy you’re likely to have an issue with is Oney, but even he will go down to a DPUH. Use your slag grenades in that fight and don’t let the turrets get a bead on you if you can avoid it.
You do run into that danger with the slag Bouncing Betty/Biddy but it’s well worth it since Krieg is the only character that can’t slag while using his action skill. Considering how important slag is on the Peak it should be an acceptable danger…
Yep. They work like a Storm Front: they won’t damage you while they’re active, but will once they explode. The betties/biddies might slag you when they first go off, but I’m not sure. Anyway, as long as you’re careful, you should be fine.
I’m also quite captivated by the Seraph Vendors’ air of shady mystery… And by the Seraph legend generally. Perhaps it’s because I spend an extraordinary amount of time with these guys trying to beat / farm them, but I find Hyperius and Pete in their own ways deeply sinister figures.
How is it, that this shady seraph vendor can be in so many locations? Does he have fast travel stations inside his shady shop, allowing him to be at the actual shady shop your at, just before you get there? LOL
I am under the impression it is a single person that has the ability to fast travel from location to location. He always sounds the same. Unless, he can create digi shady seraph shop guys.
Hehe, I had a similar experience on the Steam forums earlier… They’re also rather like this forum’s darker brother, it can be a bit of an uncivilised underworld over there, but there is also a great deal of amusement… I’m staying with family tonight and @steamnixtest among others were making me laugh so much at completely inappropriate Borderlands posts I had to retreat to a quiet room for a bit.
