CoV FL4K wound up slugging it out with seven Anointed at once (two Psychos and five Fanatics). I have never seen that many at once in a fight so far. None of them were Militants, so it was actually fairly enjoyable, though at MM11, with a smattering of other Hardened/Badass Zealots and Militants around, it felt like a takedown. I took a knee a lot, but managed to do it without dying.
I was packing a NoPewPew, Mr. Caffeine shield, Gravity Snare and a Quasar. The NoPewPew can throw a lot of crits on enemies suspended by the trap, which fed Fuzzy Math which kept my shield up, which let me reload that rifle super fast so I could burn straight through the peak fire rate.
Here the five grenade trackers you see in the HUD are all those homing orbs of death the Fanatics throw. I got a second wind in the middle of them and was physically trapped between them because they were all in such tight orbit around me. Also, I love the Critical Thug. If the shot doesn’t kill the enemy at first, the sticky will throw another shot, so you get a moment of anticipation where you can savor landing a crit at distance with that thing, and then BAM, some other rando in the mob eats it too.
He also made a run through Skywell and took out Katagawaball. Here the Globetrottr is working its shields over.
Torgue Moze ran Jakobs Estate. This is a dual shot from a Badass Zealot that went right around me.
I did not know the Hotfoot Teddy chained like this. It auto aims to the center of mass, so it’s difficult to catch crits with it, but it’s a fun little roaster.
She also ran Jack’s Secret and took out the Fabricator at MM11 with an Impaler and corrosive slams (after working the shield down with grenades and a Spark Plug). A Blast Master maxed out and some AoE buffs on the relic (and some time) did the heavy lifting. They were throwing enough damage that I could heal from the Health Gate back to full by sprinting for a moment to feed Rushin’ Offensive (corrosive slams near the Fabricator’s foot almost inevitably knocked me to the gate). It was dicey, but fun. Iron Cub was strangely useless, sitting in the corner out of range of Salamander, and peppering it with its fire assault rifles. Thanks buddy.
