Okay, fine.
But he's still 3 levels above me on a mission at my level and my shots do ZERO damage.
So now what?
Are you sure there's zero side stuff left because I never had an issue where I ran out of missions to do while barely maintaining levels on the story missions. Or check the vending machines for better guns, you might kill bosses slowly but they shouldn't be immortal.

Yup, 100% sure. I've gone through all the previous maps, and there are no more exclamation points.
And I have decent enough guns, and zero issues cutting through the goons to get to the boss, but for some reason, the boss is way OP. Is a boss that three levels above the mission level even normal?

Wow, the awful writing and cringe worthy characters in this game are a tragedy. So, so bad. It's a shame because the gunplay is great and I enjoy the art style.

Bosses are usually few levels higher, that's ok.

Wow Athenas is a damn slog. Is there seriously only 1 travel point at the very beginning? I’ve been having fun til now but I’m getting smacked down, loot filling up, and it’s just ugh.

Up until this I hadn’t really experienced the complaint that there aren’t enough travel points but this is straight BS. I may actually just stop here and hope a patch soon adds more of them. Got Zelda now and DQ11 in a few days so I can wait if we may get more points added.

has gearbox commented on this at all yet?
Yep! Minor spoiler follows. You are going to love the

level.

The best part is that the next like 4 zones are exactly the same way. It's the worst part of the game.
holy shit! Well thanks for the heads up. I am absolutely not playing for awhile then and will hope a patch addresses this.
I may sound whiny but there are too many good games to play and the lack of convenient fast travel in a game with quickly respawning enemies, sprawling zones and mountains of loot adds up to making playing a chore.
Which is the polar opposite of why I play games lol!

Omfg this game is soooooo boring. How could this happen? I loved BL2 and put in around 120 hrs on release, but this I can't even get myself to finish. I'm on Eden-6 lvl 27 Zane and it's just boring me to tears :(

I don't get it since the gunplay is actually top tier.
I think I'm coming to the conclusion that traveling to the different planets does more harm than good for me. The one interconnected world of pandora in BL2 felt like more natural progression than the disjointed feeling of jumping from planet to ship to planet to ship etc. The hallways and lack of fast travel points add up to a kind of bleh feeling. The further I get in the game the more mixed my opinion gets because I love some aspects of it (specifically the gunplay, like you mentioned) but there are other times where I'm questioning if I'm really even having that much fun.

probably already answered, but just finished the game and am level 43. do i turn on tvhm and also mayhem now? i have some sidequest stuff i wanted to finish, wasn't sure if i should do it on normal and enable a mayhem mode or if turning on tvhm plus mayhem is better for loot and stuff?

TVHM is a new start (but you can bounce between it and normal). If you just go turn on Mayhem it'll scale all the quests/mobs to your level.

I read online that the Master three for Fl4k is unplayable in endgame/at high level. Is it true? Because if it is it makes me a little sad. I've chosen them because of the pets and so far (I'm level 25 on Eden 6 so halfway trough the game I guess) it works very well. I've spend most of my points into the blue three (some on the green) and my skag rarely die (except against hard enemies some times) and do some good damage, especially when enraged. I wish I could continue to play this way. But if it's litteraly unplayable, I guess I'm going to reroll my skills. But I certainly don't want to play that crit fade away build who melt bosses.
Oh, and another question. Does the pets have stats other than the bonus they give to the player? Like, does the Eridian Skag does more damage or has more life than the Horned Skag, the Jabber, etc...

Made half a dozen attempts to take down Killavolt and I just get obliterated. Is he soloable? My plan right now is to come back when I'm like level 25 (unless his level scales or some shit).

Endgame borderlands requires damage boosting gun skills and Fl4k's blue tree just doesn't cut it after a while afaik

Yeah, for sure. It is the hardest early boss fight but your best bet is just to strafe around and bunnyhop any time the floor turns on. Some safe spots will pop up.

Today I took a ride on a funky roller-coaster and then killed Pen and Teller and then helped Tommy Wisaeau to screen his new movie.
Cool game .

Bought it today and refunded after about two hours. Guns just felt bad. Also switching to track different quests, opening up the map, then tracking a different quest, opening up the map, etc. was absurd.

Are all of Moze's heads just garbo or what.
I like the top hat and skull option.

He is definitely soloable. I did it on my Amara and my Moze. Took me 3 tries on Amara and 2 on Moze. I used the poop bazooka both times to do it.


His dick is his crit spot btw. (Not kidding)
