Before you answer, I have pretty decent gear (purple level) but no legendaries yet past level 50 in my possession. Playing as Zer0.
Anyhow, this mission... the problem is not staying alive, it's killing everyone fast enough to prevent them from knocking out the generator. Tips, suggestions, ideas? --- Lie with passion and be forever damned...
Destroy the midgets and marauders, they move too fast. Use singularity, whatever. Just keep the pressure on them.
Goliaths and nomads with shields have a tendency to walk backwards. Take advantage of their sluggishness.
Melee is your friend on Zero. I've only recently started playing him, but I did this mission in tvhm underleveled and it was insane with all green equips. --- Gamertag: LaGrimm Now Playing: Borderlands 2, ASC: Brotherhood, Halo 4
Cheers... won't be back on tonight, maybe tomorrow night (I'm in the UK). I've done plenty of melee, it's just getting them slagged up enough for the melee to do significant damage (yet). The usual problem in UVHM. Currently on level 56... --- Lie with passion and be forever damned...
I used fire burst grenades and kind of set up a barrier with them against the tougher enemies and used a lightning weapon to take down any shields. Since an ammo dump is right there you can run back and purchase more nades. --- You're born with nothing, better make it enough.
