    And on that note, I'm really sad that there's no possible chance of me ever doing Crawmerax, since I don't really play online a lot, and I'm playing a hunter.

    Hey Gearbox, if you're listening, offer up something for the other three classes to do in the next DLC!

    And I haven't had a lot of luck with Firehawks. They just don't seem to perform as well as a straight fire modded revolver. Maybe I just haven't found the right one.

    My siren though...you can pry her Hellfire out of her cold dead hands. Which you will never get the chance to, since she never dies.
    Yeah I think my 4.5 fire rate Firehawk is kind of a poor man's Hellfire. Hair Trigger pushes the fire rate up a chunk, so it's probably pushing 5+ in reality, and that can be further increased with a gunslinger mod.

    It doesn't proc reliably enough as a 2.5ish fire rate gun, but when you can fire off at double that, it really starts to excel.

    Found my first (lvl 34) Hellfire last night, and decided to try respeccing to try out a 25% colldown reduction Catalyst mod. Ended up doing this basically to get at least 1 point in the skills the Catalyst mod provided big boosts to (+4 Pheonix/Radiance +3 girl power/Intuition) and.....holy shit does that rock face.

    I set up with a corrosive elemental artifact, so as soon as I kill anything, everything around me is pretty quickly taking all three kinds of damage. Most of those pesky things that rush you (skags, psychos, etc) are dead before I even get a chance to shoot at them. And my phasewalk is on less than a 15 second cooldown, which makes me practically immortal since I heal 75+% of my health....and everything around me continues to get raped by my corrosion/lightning DoT.

    Wait till you get Blackout and your Phasewalk cooldown can be less then the duration.

    oh shit i had no idea that there was a skill that allowed you to deal out elemental damage during phasewalking. I thought it was right after. I know where the rest of my points is going.

    little workaround, as soon as you get to the top of the lift book it left and jump into the corner where the cliff meets the floor

    if you angle it right, craw bugs out and repeatedly does his flail animation, letting you whittle his health down

    then all you have to do it take out his back

    pretty much that, yeah

    only problem is once you've got a good enough loadout there's no real reason to play anymore

    craw's the only challenging thing left in the game, thanks to the lack of level scaling

    I'm at lvl 48 on PS3 (nearing end of PT2) and I've just noticed something weird. Both myself and my splitscreen co-op partner have noticed when we equip guns the level requirement to use them drops. Like I have a level 32 that drops to 29 when I equip it, a 20 that drops to 19. There appears to be no reason other than equipping it and the drops in level required are not a fixed amt of level. the guns still work the same but we were wondering what was going on? Anybody know anything about this? Sorry if it's been brought up but don't think it has in the last 2.5 threads here on PA.

    Thanks.

    it's due to your weapon skill

    Bugged Armory runs are cool and all, but I'd like to see the kind of gear Craw drops. I needs me an upgraded masher!

    True, but it might be a little more interesting than blowing up the same 20 guys to open the same 50 shitty chests.

    Srsly, if I see another Volcano, or another chest full of white rocket launchers or stupid eridian weapons, I might scream.

    You got a pic of this or something?

    I tried it a few times, the one time I made it to the corner, couldn't figure it out. Most of the time, I died before I could even reach it.

    seriously

    I die a little when I open one of the mere handful of level 60 Lance chests and find the same goddamn pair of Eridian weapons I've found a hundred times already

    they should get rid of those fucking things everyone hates them

    and also thumpers

    This is what 'm working toward with my Siren. Currently I've gotten all the points into the controller side (left) bar the Diva skill since I think it's not necessary. Woking on the elemental stuff now.

    sorry to break it to you folks who might be switching to Craw instead of Armory runs, but you get the same problem of loads of crappy weapons. 6 oranges drop- 4 are Equalizers and the other 2 are Defilers. want a crappy Volcano? here's 3. also, all the needlers and thumpers you could ever want.

    it is actually pretty difficult to hit the back from the hidden space. I recommend playing split screen with a alternate profile ( useful for swaps as well) whom you send up the elevator to distract/ get eaten.

    the truxican wrestler doesn't respawn unless you save and exit

    have fun going back and forth between t-bone junction and lockdown palace if, god forbid, you'd like to use one of the mods they added

    On my siren, with some luck, I can kill Craw in less than a minute, and get a pile of level 55-61 drops.

    The same amount of drops from armory farming takes quite a bit longer to get, and is honestly just way more boring.

    The important thing to do is to utilize whatever method you choose hundreds of times. There is no enemy other than the RNG, in Borderlands.

    Dear Gearbox,

    Put your DLC in the store on sale now and then like it is on Steam and Live. I might actually buy Moxxie.

    Or let me link my boxed game with Steam so I can use that service.

    Thanks.

    Dear 2K,

    Take the SecuROM 5 activation limit off of Zombie Island and Moxxi like you did with Knoxx and I will buy them within 60 seconds of my noticing the change.

    Thanks.

    PS - For $10 I almost want to buy the game again just because that's such a ridiculously good game-per-dollar value.

    PPS - Nice banner...

    Does steam have a demo so I can make sure it runs okay on my computer?

    Because I might be buying this when I get home. It was a lot of fun on the PS3, I imagine it would be more fun on the PC.

    No.

    But.

    It's a UE3 game. There are other games out there using the same engine with demos (Bioshock is one off the top of my head) so you can get a feel for how it runs.

    HAHAHA. Oh yeah. It'll deffinitely work. Admittedly I get a lot of major lag when I hit the higher levels. Like it'll run at a solid 30fps (I'm an ex- console gamer and that'll do me) in the beginning then around lvl 25 it'll always start to chug and drop to around 20. I just got my new cpu through the post today and plan on installing it in a short while to see if it makes a difference. It's a 2.9Ghz but it's the best one available to me thanks to Dells' locked firmware.
