I find myself at the end of my rope with this game after trying to fight Pete at level 61 (me) 63 (him).
I’ve read posts, watched videos, farmed better current level gear, planned, done the work and what it seems like I should do. But the deck appears stacked against me.
I can get him on the ledge and knock off his helmet with the Trespasser, but reducing his shield is a slow grind which I have never gotten much further than 1/2 way after 10 minutes of work with a 60 Bee, 60 DP Harold, Rubi, 55 Shock Badaboom, 61 shock Plasma Caster, 60 Fastball, various coms and relics. This sucks but is acceptable, after all, he is Pyro Pete " the Invincible".
It took me awhile to understand why his elemental effects did not end, I guess I’m a little slow. I didn’t realize that when people say “rinse and repeat” they meant it literally. So, I started using the valves (#1) and rinsing off his elemental effects when my health got low. Great, but little did I know that the level of the spiderants would rapidly increase until they were so far above me (lvl 72) that I’d spend all my time killing them and have little left over for Pete. This Sucks!
While it may seem odd, Sal has been a bit of a challange for me and at times and I felt like I was running Krieg again. Constantly gunzerking seemed to resolve most of that, but keeping him alive still seems harder than expected.
It was bad enough that after much planning and work I could not kill Hyperious with Axton. Not being able to do Pete may be it for me. I just don’t see the point of spending sooooo many hours to prepare for one boss fight only to be frustrated and disappointed.
Venting feels good at least
