I lost twice on the Algorithm last night. The first time was co-op with my wife. I was El Dragon. She was Montana. We were fine until the section where you have that long center platform with snipers above and shield shards in towers on either side that you have to destroy in order to advance. There is one of those fat bots (Not sure the exact name at this point) that spawns in the middle and he was insta-death to El Dragon. I was killed after landing one punch four times and my wife died trying to revive me. Then she got nailed by that one other wimpy bot that gets shielded standing next to the fat bot. We lost eight lives in that one spot. Game over. Embarrassing after co-op ing the entire game together several times.
Then she left for bed and I soloed the Algorithm. That stupid fat bot killed me three times. I couldn’t figure out how to kill him as a melee character. Too much health and his guns wipe me out in under a second. Finally I just ran and jumped past him and took out the shards. He shot me in the back when trying to move into the next section.
Then there is the freezer part of the map where you have to destroy shards to thaw the place. That stupid fat bot spawns there too and Instadeath again. I got past him finally by running around and avoiding him like the plague with Zero lives left. the rest was fine. Geoff went down and Isaac, but those two stupid fat bots were harder than any boss in the game.
Now I have beaten that stage many times with Oscar Mike, Whiskey Foxtrot, Orendi, and the fat bot seemed a pain, bot nothing too special. This was the first time I used a melee character on that map, (I beat heliophage with El Dragon earlier that night.) but failing the FIRST mission because of a non boss fight is embarrassing.
Either it is way OP for melee characters. Or EL Dragon is squishy, relying too much on regen, or something changed with the latest hotfix or something.
Anyone else with this issue?
