Seems like I need a group to kill this thing, but the mission states it as a solo instance

Leave and do another mission. Try again and hope Harvey sends you down the other path to fight clayface.

It absolutely is. Makes me wish you could call in your mentor as a summon. I've beaten the duo of this mission, the bot is harder than the actual final boss of that mission.

your suppose to make the little pengbots explode on the Pengbot Maximus,

figured out on my 2nd try after I died once. It seems particularly weak to them, since exploding one on it takes off like 1/6 of its hp.

Depends on your char skills. I had not too much problem with a gadget tricks char, did the instance on first try. It was mainly lots of stun moves (even if hardly affected) especially encasing the small pengbots in stasis fields, lots of rolls, shot him at distance with my bow and sticky bomb, rinse and repeat. The self heal anesthetic also helped as well as the most basic armor that you can buy with 1 mark each.

I found the Penguin much more difficult as I had to be wary of my hp way more often than with Pengbot maximus.
I have sampled every language, French is my favourite - fantastic language, especially to curse with. It's like wiping your ass with silk, I love it.

Meh. You block/roll away when he's spinning. Attack the smaller ones when they're around him so they explode. Not really as hard as people make it out to be once you know what to do, but it is still by far the hardest one mostly because the others are wicked easy.

Block and roll away when its spinning. I cant begin to tell you how much health this saves you.

Once its hp gets to half, Pengbot already knows four moves and so he forgets rapid spin and learns peck. Use ranged and youre good.
Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
