Okay, Hammerlocks DLC is P*$$ING ME THE *bleep* OFF ... keep running into invisible walls everywhere ... sometimes even the shield on my turret seems to act like a wall ... anyone else getting this problem? You run up to a cliff face or what not and you get stopped like 10 feet away instead of being able to run all the way up to it like you always could with this game. You run up to like a .5ft high stone sticking out of the ground, and suddenly get stopped dead ... and you have to jump onto it or go around it ... the original game you'd just run right up onto it automatically.

And it's harder than crap ... I'm level 47, played both DLC's, and I'm still using a lot of level 40-45 weapons cause I've gotten hardly any decent weapon drops ... my shield / relic are pretty decent but my guns suck.

BTW, I hate spores ... even when they're the same level as me they take like 500 rounds to kill. The weapons on the Fanboat also seem really underpowered ... and the XP gains often seem really ridiculously low in relation to how long things take to finally kill.

Also, witch doctors REALLY blow.

I'm also getting regular mob enemies that are level 51 (i.e. skull/crossbones for a level 47 player) even right in the very beginning of the DLC. I'm wasting so much money on ammo (and dying) it's ridiculous.

I really need better guns. Can I please get some decent gun drops, oh gods of BL2?

They've definitely upped the difficulty with Hammerlock. I got some great guns in the Torgue and Cpt Scarlet DLCs but I think they're getting a bit underpowered too even at level 50.

The spores are bullet spunges unless you shoot their critical spot, I phase lock them then run underneath.

I think the Witch doctors are pretty cool! Every time they resurrect a minion it looks like the minion gains a level. I had to fight off a couple of level 55 minions because of that this morning. You've really got to concentrate on taking them out asap!

New dlc: AWESOME.

Sheesh, looking at this: Texas-to-London we'll have to figure something out....

I'm off all this weekend so, just look for me---we can go crazy in BL2.

haha! epic biggrin.gif!

Turning the view distance to low gives seems to give me a massive FPS boost. I'm talking 40-50 FPS here.

Turning it to medium, high, or Ultra high will all give me around the same FPS as I've always had when looking at big towns and whatnot.

Definitely a challenge. Can't even imagine doing the Hunt below level 50. Some of those with doctors...wow. Had a blast though. Such a good game.

We were saying last night that it's really noticeable. We played without Bee shields turning the glitch on and off, trying our other shields here and there, and man was it hectic at some points. We were in one cave with those scorpion things and we were both like: Dude I can't see jack!" Where are you, I can't see you!" Just mobbed like crazy. Love it. That's how it should've been from the beginning.

I still think they need another mode:

You. Will. Die. <-- Ginormous mobs.

I started playing the Hammerlock DLC last night and I agreed the difficulty has been significantly increased. What really pissed me off was I got killed by a Witch Doctor while sniper camping on a mountain, when he shot this constant laser beam through the mountain and the boulder I was standing on. When i got downed, I literally saw the laser on me from under me through the ground. It was one of those "***?!? How was that fair?!?" moments.

It's not hard, it just takes forever to take down some enemies. I've solo'd the DLC so far and haven't died yet and only had to fight for my life once. Just some enemies, like the Witch Doctor, take an absurd amount of ammo to take down.

Also, I'm finding the boat to suck.
