So wait, the arenas that are scattered through the world that the game has special map markers and huge signs and stuff for are there so you can fight the people in your co-op team? You can fight them anywhere! There has to be something more to it. Tell me there is something more to it.

Maybe you can get exp or money from the actual arenas? Come on!


Btw, the game really ramps the difficulty up after you get to Old Haven. The crimson lance are the first npc's I can't one-shot.

Beat the game. Going to do a second run-through soon. The only weapons I found that were any better than what I had were alien weapons and lose their charge after like 4 shots. BOOOOOO.

A tip if you're on playthrough 2.5: Some of the respawned bosses occasionally drop improved versions of quest rewards. Rakkinshu may drop a level 48 Sentinel, for example. The other boss-exclusive weapons are worth getting too; I got an incendiary Boom Stick from Baron Flynt, and it explodes everything on fire. Better than any rocket launcher I ever had.

I had a lvl 22 Maliwan Hellfire SMG that was pretty much the best weapon Ive gotten until late in the 2nd playthrough (being replaced with a higher level hellfire)

*edit*

Just got a dark orange Maliwan Crux that does 7x122 dmg, ~74% accuracy and 1.9% fire rate. This thing=the game on easy

I went through the thread and added a few of you guys on steam.
Steam: r3an1m4t3d
Gamespy: PantsFu

I'd love to play with people, single player is sort of boring as a Siren, and I'm level 19 in the mines to kill Sledge. I have trouble taking out 3-4 bandits alone right now because I've got shit weapons.

Holy shit I bought a revolver that has only 2 shots to magazine, but it does like 130 damage each shot with 3x corrosive. reload time is super fast too and there is nearly no recoil. Game just got easy.
Also found a shotgun that shot rockets but it was pretty shit compared to my sniper rifle that shoots lightning and my smg that shoots fire.

Wait until you get alien weaponry. Some of it shoots lightning and craps thunder.

I found one that does 128X8 damage and has extremely high electric chance.

That would be the Thunder, right? I remember that type of weapon having zero accuracy. Nope, Eridian weapons suck without exception.

I'm now 2-3 levels above most of the missions I am getting. I guess this is what happens when you do all of the missions offered to you before you move on. There's not much of a difficulty right now. I'm at the point where I kill One-Eye Jack.

i just got this game on the 360 and idk i just cant seem to get into it. The cell shading looks great sometimes but other times annoys me. the mob AI is seriously lacking as i can kite most enemies even if 3-4 levels higher than me. I haven't done mulitplayer yet so maybe im missing out on something.
