Having trouble with W4R-D3N in TVHM

#1PDGMTGPosted 7/16/2013 12:51:33 AM
So I just changed over and I'm having some issues with this guy. In the first area I wasn't even able to break his shields. How that he's in the Gulag, I can't get close enough to him without being swarmed by so many loaders I can't keep up. The biggest issues are the badasses, whose missiles seem to kill me in one hit, while they shoot 50 of them at a time. -_-

I've just spent over an hour, killing probably 300+ enemies trying to kill this stupid thing, coming close a couple times, but being unable to finish him off.

Does anyone have any tips for this thing? Should I try to find some better weapons, or am I just missing a really simple strategy that I could use?

My weapons I thought were good. I'm a level 40 Siren.

Aim for the eye? Especially when he is trying to create units it cancels them. Abuse phaselock as much as you can.

I can't even really get close enough to go for the eye.

And I would invite people but I'm taking a break right now. Just too frustrated with the game to play at the moment. -_-

Shock on shields, corrosive once it's down?
What gear/build/character you running?

I had trouble with this part as well with gaige can't offer to much advice since I never played as a siren but I will say I found it easier to apporach him from the far left side instead of the center

In the Gulag, I too usually had more success coming from the left side rather than down the center. It offers a way to sort of streamline enemies coming at you, which is very helpful.

Knowing your build would be good too. If you have Ruin, I would say abuse Phaselock on the Warden and get those elemental effects going. If you grabbed Thoughtlock, snag one of the Badass Loaders that's giving you a hard time and let it work for you for a bit. The other enemies may even take it down for you. If you went with Scorn, uh, ask someone else. I'm not that well-versed with it.
