I basically just used an explosive rifle + tesla grenades + deathtrap to win the fight. In his last stage I was alternating between running away and firing on him when deathtrap was up. *shrugs*
Someone else here probably has a much better strategy though.

If you prefer to earn your legendary weapons or don't want to ask for any then use a gold key. I got some hand guns with them that made all the difference in TVHM.

Title Screen> Extras> Shift Codes
I think I saw some shift codes floating around earlier but idk if they're still active.

Shoot him in the back with a shock gun...run....shoot...run.

When robots spawn shoot them with a corrosive gun...run...shoot...run.

Repeat until both generators are destroyed.

Shoot him in the chest with a shock weapon when he tries to rain death on you.

These strategies generally involve evasion. It'll probably be easier with a grounded shield. I however used a high end booster shield and I did this with a Siren.

It sucks you're having trouble with him. The fight right after him is insane.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
