Beat the game the first time last night with my level 32 assassin. Seemed too easy? Maybe because it was on "normal" mode and I was playing alone. Oh well, I got my first Orange rarity weapon of the deal and its pretty darn cool. Ill throw up a screenshot when i remember to take one :P

Co-op definitely makes the game tougher though! Been playing with some buddies and everything is much tougher, but more fun also!

Side question: Anyone having problems finding E-tech (eridium) guns? My lvl 32 found one. Just one. And it was one of silly needler pistols that are mostly useless. So what the hell? Pretty early on dr zed describes all sorts of awesome sounding guns during the bonus quest to kill his rival - but i havent gotten any of those. I want a freakin railgun dammit. lol

I found the game pretty easy too up till the last few areas. The end boss fight was more of a nuisance than anything else.

I started over with the True Vault and can already see a difference in difficulty.

Whoa... tell me about it! True vault hunter is actually extremely hard, what a difference!

Super Badasses are taking 6-8 headshots from assassin to kill, which is in the range of 22k to 50k damange, depending if im using deception of not. thats insane!

Your using the wrong weapon then. Time to start farming for goodies.

I found one good 72K homing MIRV (7 child spawned) grenade w/ shock damage takes down anything...and usually multiple enemies. When I run out of 'nades (gunzerkers 2 for 1 grenades are sweet for this) a good 200K missile kills em dead. ;)

....then again Im using lvl 50 characters (I have one of each of the four types) with lvl 50 weapons....best 20 minutes of investment ever.

Yeah my assassin is only level 35 and still using first-playthrough weapons as low as level 28 or so. Still though... cmon! 50k damage to your face! sheesh...

That's one tough face.

All my weapons are around the level I am at. I can crit for over 10-15k easily right now and have over 4500 points for badass ranking. Most of my badass ranks are 5% or more.

Just tried fighting boom bewm and that was fun and not so simple.
