Badass constructor seems to be literally impossible

On the big bridge right after defeating Saturn. If I try to poke my head out for a tenth of a second to take a shot, it instantly kills me. If I stay behind cover, it instantly kills me with those missile things. What the hell am I supposed to do?

Solo Axton, lvl 50, build involves turret upgrades (including the double turret from the right tree), lots of great corrosive weapons.

Snipe from the respawn point at the elevator

I tried that. After the first shot, it became aware of me and instantly killed me.

You might be exaggeratinga tad here I have done this many times many different ways, sniping him from afar, running towards with a corrsive smg. Try and find a spot the missiles dont hit you or they hit the bridge/cover and explode. This one is 10x easier then the badass constructor you fight before you get to the bunker.

Hide behind the large cargo crate. Only attack from the right side because he'll try to fire directly at you. The missles will either hit the pole or hit the crate when you move over.

When he prepares to launch nukes wait for them to shoot out the top and shoot them out of the air. He'll fire 3..rinse.& repeat until dead.

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

Are you shooting the shield in front of his eye? Wait til that goes away and then shoot.

Yeah, it's eye shield reflects damage back at you, you can kill yourself pretty easily if you shoot at that with a good weapon.

Huh, I didn't realize that the shield actually reflects damage back at you. That's probably what was happening.

Another thing to note, Constructors fire nukes, huge missiles. This is usually shown by a flashing light on the Constructor, and it's not attacking at all. Sometimes they put up that reflector shield over their eye while they prep a nuke. Badass Constructors fire 3 with each prep, instead of 1.

Since it can be easy to not notice a nuke flying, you might not get to shoot it down in time :(

Just thought I'd mention this, since the nuke is crazy powerful.
