Wait what? Steel Beast IS pretty easy but it's for the exact opposite reason you stated...at least in my experience. It is easy to not die but not easy to keep a combo really going. Because the J'avo spawn in pretty slowly. Once the Napads (armored monsters) show up...they're about the only thing that does for several seconds and it is very easy to lose the combo there. Getting a good rank is not THAT difficult, but it's a lot easier to lose the combo on Steel Beast than on any other map aside from Liquid Fire (which I think is worse actually).

my friend got multiple S ranks on it with random online, getting crazy easy long combos. I played with him afterwards and we did even better - easily hitting 400k scores every time and proceeding to unlock all the secondary costumes we wanted. we're not all that great, either - we can't get above a B on Urban Chaos or the mine level.
it's just so much easier to keep combos going on J'avo because they move so much faster. we've also never died there yet - we die kind of routinely to Bloodshots and whatnot on the other two levels, but J'avo just seem so easy.

If you're only scoring 400k you can't really say anything is "too easy".
alright mister elitist. 400k might not be amazing to all the super-pro players, but considering on duo it's nearly double the required points for the highest possible grade, I'd say it's damn well too easy, considering we aren't all that great.
