Oh yeah, still Pandora. I'm only level 5 so I'm guessing I'm going to be on Pandora for awhile.

If you do everything available before the main storyline forces you off - you will be around Level 9 or 10 when you leave

Beat Traunt first go. Surprising what being properly leveled, having a nice electric grenade, having a digi-clone AND running track laps around the area did for me. Definitely appreciate seeing how J.T. and Rippa are approaching some situations. Alternative ideas besides charge in and blow up things are , occasionally, useful.🤣

No, this was the "Proof of Wife" mission that I took on in Lectra City after I got tired of Killavolt draining my bank account.

Fuck that guy, too.

Ah, that's right ....the whole clan of annoying bandits.  Took about 4 tries to get through that one. Your irritation is VERY understandable.

I only discovered last night that you can fast travel to your vehicle.

I might have to wait till they sort out the performance issues before I play more

I am trying to beat Rampager and first time the game completely locked up. The next three times I would get him down to a sliver and then my ally would just stand still and stare at me. Not shoot not revive just tell me that the place is getting destroyed 

Grr....

Yeah, that side mission brawl rivaled the Katagawa Ball boss fight in it's near maddening levels of frustration. 

I think I dropped nearly 2K on revives before putting down the wedding party.

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't have any problems smashing the next three or four bosses in one go.

The only thing that bugs me now is that every separate map zone on Eden-6 is the size of Lectra City.   

Oh, the other thing that bugs me is that CoV bandits don't have the courtesy to stop and wait for me to catch up to their vehicle while I am on foot so that I can hijack it for new parts.  I'm just now getting the sawblade launcher and the blade wheel for the Cyclone and I am sure I am a few thousand add-ons behind for the Runner.

I've tried dozens of times to jack one of the Tech Runners in the Meridian Outskirts to no avail.

Silver linings.  At least you found out about it before you started poking around Eden-6.   Being able to FT back to your vehicle is a godsend on that planet.

You will totally mark the fuck out during the prison break mission, if you haven't done it already.

I really wanted to slap the shit out of Ava when we got back from the vault on Promethia.

I really want to put a bullet in Hammerlock's sister's head, too, and I am pretty sure Hammerlock wants that as well.

Wainwright Jakobs is now my new favorite NPC.

I finally found FL4K's ECHO recording on Sanctuary.  I'm definitely playing him when I get around to a pure co-op campaign.

I haven't done a bunch on Eden-6 but I almost immediately broke the game when I climbed up onto one of the log transports and rode around unlocking parts of the maps that I wasn't supposed to have access to yet

There are only one or two areas of Floodmoor Basin that are still progress locked to me, 

One of them being the logging camp on the NW side of the map where the remaining Crimson Radio challenge is.

I nearly broke a controller trying to make the jump to get the Laser Wings Runner hijack target, but I eventually made the jump after a few adjustments.

I'm going to need a COV gun that doesn't run out of ammo if I expect to unlock the achievement for getting a perfect score for Marcus's target range, aren't I.

I miss like two or three targets while reloading.

I remember you talking about missing cameos so I know you lost your shit during the prison break mission.

Oh, and now I am torn between playing either FL4K or Flynt.

FL4K may be able to specialize with sniper rifles but Flynt has an entire skill tree devoted to allowing him to snipe with any gun short of a launcher and the perks even make him deadly accurate from long distances with heavy weapons.

I am not sure why Achievements Tracker says that so few games have completed the Rewards Card achievement.

All you have to do is get enough kills with a certain manufacturers weapons until they send you a gun in the mail.

I think the only one I am missing is Atlas.  I probably should've gotten a few more kills on Skywell- with that smart bullet rifle I had.

Speaking of skill trees - I really need to remember to print out the build I started using for Amara

It basically was what I was doing anyway - just redistributes the points better

Because I think most players don't specifically look at the manufacturers they are using (unless trying for the achievement)

Most are "what kills things the quickest"

Like I don't care what I am using as long as things are dying. The only reason I am getting the guns in the mail is because RNG has been... mostly... good to me

That's the thing.   All of the guns are fairly decent once you get a hang of the mechanics.  The only manufacturer that gives me pause is CoV since you can't really lean on the trigger of their weapons for fear of breaking them after they overheat.

Then you've just got a useless paperweight sitting in your inventory.

I used to hate Atlas guns, but now I love them now that Moze has the perk that allows her to shoot and run at the same time.   I just put a tracker on an enemy and then backpedal while firing a shitload of smart bullets.

That's how I put down The Warden.

I'd like to do that with Moze but the perks that give Iron Bear peak efficiency are scattered through all three skill trees.

Shields are on one tree, fuel consumption in another, and armor upgrade is in a third.  Class Mods have saved my ass so far by either giving me access to perks I shouldn't have or buffing skills I only have one or two points invested in.

I need to get myself an improved Tank Gal mod, though, preferably one with fuel economy / up-armor point skill point buffs.

Haven't done it yet.  I'm all over the place since I'm way behind on my stuff but I've done a lot of level 30 or so with melraz
