    Getting a little frustrated with loot soloing a Lvl.22 siren on my first playhtrough. Haven't opened a chest or gotten an enemy drop in ages that was anything better than green. My loadout includes a lvl.15 pistol w/ 125DPS and fire damage. Should I just count on getting good loot thru quests/vendor specials or will there be some drops worth a damn later on?
    If you have some spare coin, put money in Moxxi's tip jar. Just spam the 100 dollar option and she will eventually give you a "Moxxi's Bad Touch" and a "Moxxi's Good Touch", purple SMGs that deal corrosive and fire damage respectively. You can always go back to the tip jar later and she will keep giving you more guns (although after the first ones she's only given me more fire ones) that will be higher level, although they don't fully scale to your level. Sometimes it takes a lot of cash, last time I only had to give her 300 to get a new gun.

    You can actually make money this way at high levels, because the tip is always 100 dollars, but the guns will be worth more and more.

    (there are bugs though, sometimes she says she's giving you something but doesn't, and the tip jar goes dead. Save and reload, and try again)

    Quick question to anyone tech savvy, I don't have the net at home but is it possible to tether my PS3 to my iPhone quickly for the update?

    I am at work til eleven just wondered if it would work, or even if my ps3 would pick it up.

    Early impressions of the Mechromancer are that she's pretty good. I'm surprised at how fast the robot is, and he seems to put out decent damage. He did a great job of tanking midgemong or whatever it's called.

    The 60 second cooldown is rough though, and unlike the turret, you can't recall it early.

    @Jazzassin Thanks! I will try that. Gave Moxxi a few tips and hadn't gotten anything yet.

    I've tipped Moxxi plenty money and she said my generosity should be rewarded several times... But nothing.

    Glitch?

    Edit: Ahh, just seem above.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Think it's about 15k to get the first one. More for the second.

    That's just one of the random things she says. When she hands out a gun she says "Here, this is my favorite gun etc" and you can't tip anymore until you've accepted the gun.

    Do remember, if you've tipped a lot and she bugs you can just quit without saving and you'll have your money back.

    Deathtrap is ace. You let him loose and he goes and shreds everything, he's relentless.

    Yeah I just tried it with mine and it connects. But it's a 250 meg download and I don't know the charges for tethering on my network so
    I'll give them a call tomorrow and ask!

    With 3 so unlimited data and unlimited tethering. Used it to do a co op game as a test. Only got got 2 bar game and plenty of 1 bar games

    Joined the 2 bar game at the final battle of Where angels fear to tread part 2. Actually went well, better than I thought it would . Have had worse connections using my flat Internet connection. Will stick to my wired connection instead

    Would advise against using the phone for co op gaming, fine for updates and the such. Probably test it again when they roll out 4g for 3 late next year.

    You can boost to level 50 very quickly by using the Flesh Stick exploit.

    Oh. Right. Sounds like it would ruin the game for me, but to each his own!

    It says you need 2+ people for it to work but I only play solo so no power leveling or item duping for me.

    If you're on a console, I'm sure you could do that by using splitscreen co-op. Just need two controllers.

    I just tested a money & eridium farming "exploit". Killed The Warrior with my Salvador, then joined the co-op with my Gaige, and looted all the eridium off the floor with her.

    Alternatively you could just play the machines at Moxxi's of course, but this way there's a chance of getting a legendary item too.

    I don't normally cheat, but I really dislike the need for eridium for backpack and ammo upgrades.

    Oh and Gaige's "Anarchy" ability + Resolute Infinity pistol shreds. You actually cannot lose the stack since the pistol can't be reloaded at all. Downside is you can't go down the Anarchy tree more than that, because the other ability would make the pistol go to 0 ammo.

    The eridium system is fine on the first playthrough, but a chore on any other characters.

    What's the verdict for the 360 version from everyone playing last night? I would not be happy if all my progress was erased when I start playing this tonight!

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Downloaded last night. No problems with badass rankings. Didn't have any other problems apart from the sound dropping bug which has been happening before the DLC as well

    I backed up my save and took the plunge. Haven't had any problems so far, but the risk is there.

    Probably not a good idea to use my super duper launcher on Bunker in 2nd playthrough at 24K a pop ammo refill.Well it took 800K worth of rockets to take him down.Only to find once he got to zero health he just sat still in the air forcing a reload.Should have dashboarded out but I was to angry to think logically.And I ended up with having to use my sniper rifle with 60k crit a shot and probably an hour in the making.

    Thankfully the loot dropped got me a quarter of what I had lost back.:rolleyes:

    No problems for me (360).

    Ad has been mentioned though, not being able to join a pal's game was frustrating - they didn't have the PClub stuff.

    Have seen that glitch a couple or three times now in my various first playthroughs. Pretty annoying.

    Doesn't he ever carry on? I've had a few NPC's get stuck like that, had a Constructor that had no health but wouldn't die. I sat there for 5 minutes and he randomly exploded in the end.
