I seriously don’t get why this is so hard. This was not hard in story mode at all. The quest is level 37. I’m 38…so it’s difficulty is “normal”. You can’t avoid his attacks very well and the drones are just never ending. If he hits you it’s pretty much insta-gib. If you die, you get thrown into a corner where the drones immediately attack you at the spawn point and if you even survive you have to start with low health, waste ammo and there is no vending machine to replenish after you die.
I try to stay moving the whole fight but eventually his rockets hit you and/or he just jumps on top of you. There isn’t really any cover. I can keep his shields down OK with a shock sniper but trying to do sustained corrosive damage while running away isn’t effective. WTF am I doing wrong?
I just can’t do it. Not even close. I can only get him to about 60% health before I run out of ammo and just die repeatedly. I guess I have to go get more XP and over level myself to get past it? Seems sort of ludicrous at this stage of the story. Jesus christ. I can’t believe how much harder this is than BL3 on M10 at max level.
