I had this problem when I played BL2 back in the day…and seems I am rounding into that again. Is this game simply designed to be more friendly to people who are likely going to skip all optional content. Or is there somehow a way to avoid this from happening?
It would seem if you do all the side quests…by the halfway point of the game you are so overleveled that the challenge severely lowers. By the 75% mark…its like playing with god mode. I always disliked how you cant simply play the game and all its DLC in one straight shot without having to deal with this. Even TVHM won’t fix this for long.
I played twice back on the 360 and I was able to remedy this by starting TVHM upon finishing the game to do DLC. It was still kind of annoying to go from absolutely NO challenge to now EVERY single enemy is a big challenge. Eventually you get used to it…and then what feels like a sudden drop is even TVHM becomes easy way too fast in the DLC making it almost optimal to start UVHM mode. Which I never had…I had the season pass but not that.
Just really blows when you see this interesting DLC content that basically impossible to play without being on God Mode.
