Since I’ve gotten to OP2 Reeth has been very stingy with these things. At 72 I had a full set and in very short time.
Several days back, after not so careful consideration and one too many beers I reset UVHM. So I’m now playing through the story at OP2. I’ve been suprised at how easy its been, that is until it was time to kill Jacks double, then it was like someone flipped the difficulty switch.
Anywho, in my last session it was time to go after Bunker. I was going to put this off for a bit, but after killing Jacks double, my voice changed and I just couldn’t take hearing another haiku in that lame voice any more…
Everything went well(RIP Roland), and I ended up back in Marcus’ storeroom. Didn’t find much of interest to steal.
Had a brief session in which I continued with my farming of Pimon at WEP. Very first kill I got one!..but it’s a 72 and a bad one at that. My current 72 has considerably more capacity. I have an OP1 and normally I would just accept that and move on, but this has been great practice for killing rabids.
I tried several more times, but no more Transformers. Tumba did give me an OP2 Gentle Deliverance non elemental.
My method for killing rabids is using the blockhead. I aim for the ground beneath the target and the pellets ricochet up and shred their soft underbellies. If I get it right I can kill em in as little as 2 shots. This is very similar to how I use the Pimpernel on spiderants.
As I’ve said, I’m doing this in preparation for the Peak. My concern here is that the Blockhead may not really be suited for the Peak being a fire weapon and all. I’m going to have to do some testing. Even if it’s not, I’ve learned how to keep the critters from over powering me so that’s a good skill to have.
Lastly I did a couple runs at the Outwash. After watching a couple vids from both MoLMF and Derchlands where they talked about the Gatling Gun, I remembered that one of my mules has an OP2 Purple Gatling. Wow…I had basically disregarded this weapon and it turns out it’s actually quite good. Not a fan of the reloads, but when it hits it hits hard. I think soon I’m going to Southpaw using only Purple Jakobs. I think that would be fun.
