This dates back to when the game wa released. I’m not a 100% sure on one or two skills, but I think this is what I used on Axton. Don’t remember the COM.
Being a total noob at the time, I actually managed to get through most areas without too much trouble, but… There were obviously some areas that gave me trouble! When I first went to Caustic Caverns, I could barely get past the crystalisks at the start. I had crappy guns, ofc, but I finally made it to Blue… That took some time! I don’t remember the details, but it was horrible. After that I to know the threshers up close and personal. It was Pyro thresher bonanza plus a couple of blackhole threshers. That experience made me sweat every time I had to go there. I always ran as fast as I could through there. Scared shirtless!
Another “fond” memory is when I went to Control Core Angel for the first time. Crappy guns again, ofc! Those constructors gave me such a hard time. But that was nothing compared to what I was facing when I had to kill BNK-3R. I hadn’t figured out that he had crit spots, so I just shot his turrets and his body. I also died a lot! I kept running on the outer ring, and the bots just kept on coming.
After that, things went pretty well! Until I tried to kill the Warrior with the Dahlminator from where you drop down. Again, with the “Oh, did he have crit spots”-problem. Some people will now begin to see a pattern.
-Pst! Shoot the crits!
And then there was Terramorphous! But this time, I had done some research, and I had therefore picked up a Good Touch. And after several attempts… Victory was achieved! So now, I wanted more! I had heard of the awesome combo of the Bee and the Conference Call. This was before the Bee was nerfed, so it gave full amp on all projectiles.
Hunter Hellquist dropped me a Bee on the second attempt. He has never dropped it again for me. I got the Warrior to drop me a CC, and off to Terra I went. It was like the top scores of the Time Trials. A couple of seconds. Even on Axton! Those were the days…
