I have just saved a wipe (only to fail 2 rounds later) I joined after it started, everyone died pretty quick and I had to take on a brute, banshee 2 marauders and 4-5 cannibals... it took me like 7 minutes, 3 medgel packs 2 shield/hp re-fillers and I had no missiles, on a paladin with a rank 2 piranha as his only weapon... my heart was pounding out of my chest and I was sweating, how do you guys even play on this difficulty? I nearly wet myself... not with laughter...

You need better weapons. Gold is very hard with low level or common weapons.

I start by not caring if someone steals my kill.

I get that, but I also meant physically, I managed so save the team that round, on my own, but I could feel my heart beating so fast and hard I thought there was an earthquake...

C'mon now, we can all be friends here. Now, shake hands and make up.

You get used to it. Eventually you become accustomed to playing Gold and occasionally having to solo a wave.

Kinda like skydiving (probably), where you're scared ****less your first time but eventually the fear just goes away.

I was constantly moving, so much so that I lost were the enemies were at (which is what killed) so i needed to use alll 3 medigels...

I was took out the brute with my shotgun/incinerate, energy drained/incinerated the maruaders from afar and used my long range snap freeze on cannibals before putting a round in there heads... but the hard part was the banshee, as I only had the one weapon equipped, no missiles, I had to backtrack, using energy drin then kept unloading my shotgun and incineration when the barrier was down... toughest fight of my life, I don;t think I wil be playing more gold soon...

my heart is still racing:)

you get used to the added pressure on gold. I thought silver was crazy when I first got my feet wet, and the same with gold,

the more you play gold, the easier it will become, and eventually you won't feel the pressure so much

EDIT: against the banshess you should snap freeze -> energy drain until the barriers are down. Should only take 2-3 freeze combos. Then snap freeze -> incinerate the armor. Shoot the pirahna while on cooldown

Don't be afraid to use consumables.If you win and extract you get around 80.000 gold.With 33.000 gold you can buy 5 of every consumable so you will always have a profit.
