    You're not supposed to be able to do those bosses solo. It's why they're called "raid bosses". Of course people have found exploits and ways to get around it, but they were made for MP.

    I know that. That wasn't what I was saying though...

    It was more in response to Flying_Pig's original thing, not your reply. Seems a bit redundant to complain about MP bosses being too difficult to do solo.

    The problem arose from the fact, so I've been told, players wanted a boss that involved more than just shooting full of bullets, but what Gearbox delivered isn't what they wanted! So it's like the left hand hearing the right hand say something via Chinese Whispers.

    Apparently there's a "surefire" way to do it solo (all over Youtube), but I won't bother detailing it here because I found it about as 'surefire' as pregnancy by sharing bathwater.
    It does work, it worked for me, but this is a while back before the last couple of major patches, so who knows if it's still viable. I don't see why not... it did take a couple of attempts to understand how and when NOT to shoot more than when to shoot the worms.

    Playing this co-op with a friend on 360.. it's a bit punishing innit. Very easy to find yourself shouting for revival. Or I'm just a bit crap.

    Don't hang back like you would in a regular shooter as you can easily take flack and go down.  Its works in you favour to get in their faces as its much easier to bag a second wind especially with a shotty or launcher

    Yay! Finally got to lvl 50 :D

    So - calling all PS3'ers - anyone up for a Terramorphus and possibly Master Gee session on either Wednesday or Thursday evening this week?

    They're both PT1, so I can't promise decent loot but would apprecite any help :)

    I had a look at the Badass Challenges (looking for that trophy) and noticed that two of them are still [Hidden] - having done a bit of Google-ing they seem to require completion of Rocket Launcher and Shotgun challenge before activating. As a sniper-focussed Assassin, guess which are my two least used weapons :|

    @Flying_Pig

    Maybe Thursday, don't finish work until 6pm, so a bit later in the evening.

    My Axton's still only at 46, so will have to use my Gaige at 54.

    Your Gaige sounds perfect

    I've got a fairly decent lvl 50 Bee, a fairly average 50 Sandhawk and some other nice lvl 50 gear if you want anything duping, rather than farming.

    @oldschoolsoviet - you're more than welcome to jump in :D

    @themanfromdelmonte - if you're happy to share... Can't say I've got anything particularly special. I did open the Golden Chest a few times - got some nice kit (a lvl50 caustic plasma caster!) but nothing of that quality.

    Thinking about picking this up as my next game but seems very co op focused and I'd only play single player. Should i avoid ?

    I played it entirely in single player and i still had a blast, fantastic game, is long as buggery though!

    @northernlights - Played a lot on both SP and with mates. This game shines when played solo - much more than the original.

    Enjoy

    If I was on PS3, I'd dupe you my lvl50 Nukem, which would help with the rocket launcher challenge. As for the shotgun one, I suggest running around Tundra Express on playthrough 1 with a fast firing, fast reloading shotty, and just shove it in the face of everything you come across. That should net you a good hundred kills or so.

    I ran melee Zer0 more in P1, so the shotty was my second most used weapon after SMGs, hence I didn't have much issue racking up the 750 needed kills to open the other challenge.

    Those two challenges are the worst, grind-heavy, ridiculous chores to complete.

    A few afternoons with an Evil Smasher-glitched shotty still didn't help take the edge off.

    @Mayhem64 - I spent an hour or so at the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve (PT1) shotgunning my way through various slags and Loaders. I'll play though the Creature Slaughter Dome, racking up some kills.

    I'm pretty close to the rocket launcher one, but am about 400 kills off the shotty one D:

    I need to boost my lvl 18 Gunzerker and lvl 6 Siren, so will be using a shotgun with them too :)

    @northernlights much more fun in single player than the first game. Definitely worth it regardless of playing multiplayer.

    @oldschoolsoviet

    You gents still OK for tonight? I should be on from about 8:30pm (provided the kids go to sleep nicely).

    There's still room for another PS3'er to join our Terramorphus run (lvl 50+)!!

    A huge thanks to @themanfromdelmonte and@oldschoolsoviet for their Terramorphus help tonight.


    Only a few trophies left to get the Platinum
    Taking a break for a few months to play something else before giving the Hammerlock and Tiny Tina DLC a go
