I had a moment where the storm was set to move in after about 1:20 and I was debating if I had time to loot the critter sewer. I decided that I was gonna go for it and that once the stormclock hit 30 seconds I was gonna bail. Well, this was how I learned that the arenas lock you in after starting so imagine my dread as I climbed the ladder to escape and noticing the hatch had sealed itself off. I had that moment of “I have made a huge mistake”.
At that moment, I went into my inventory and equiped an Atlas rocket launcher. I hadn’t used rocket launchers in a BL game in a VERY long time. Everything that moved was laid to waste in explosive desperation.
As the storm started to move in I had just enough time to snag a few good drops and loot the two chests before getting the heck out of there. I didn’t even look at what was in the box I simply grabbed everything and bolted. My heart was racing and from that moment I was hooked on Arms Race. I ended up using that white Atlas rocket launcher to score a couple second winds during the boss fight and dumped the rest of my heavy ammo reserve into burning down the last half of his health bar.
