I completely agree TC. But unfortunately I'm a level 35 Zero so I don't really have any tips for you since my saving grace has been one of my skills. --- Official Head of Secret Service of the NDF PSN ID: Bein Kitterrrrs Like a Phoenix, we rise again from the ashes... - Nintendogger
Do you have a bunch of skills in that tree that makes you a walking fortress? If not, I'd recommend going to Normal playthough, heading to Sanctuary, and rescpecing. It ought to help you last a little longer.
Luckily I'm not solo. I got a pimped-out turret along my side. --- PSN: HELLSHOCKED
