@Thrillho If memory serves, I think that you have to put at least one point into the level above to unlock the next level. I could be wrong though.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Th3solution I am not the guy to ask about The Pre-Sequel. The very little I played I was Nisha which I heard can be a beast for solo play but I never play solo so I wouldn't know. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

@Thrillho You can put points into any skill in that tree I think. As long as it's in the correct tree. Maybe make a note of where you'd allocated your points just in case. You can always re-spec at a change station if it doesn't work.

@Th3solution The platinum for BL2 seems to be a little easier on PS4. Last time I didn't bother with the character-specific trophies as it involved levelling them up a fair bit to ensure you can keep their skill activated long enough. But now you can create lvl 30 characters from scratch. I think I might go for the BL2 plat this time.

I've got the bug too, as everyone else seems to have.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 @Th3solution @Thrillho
I think levelling up works a bit differently in the Pre-Sequel.

I have just the last power to unlock, but I can't select it until I've put points into the two above it. And some skill you can put upto to 5 points into.

I agree with the checkpointing and backtracking, I think it is my biggest grumble with the games.cThere at least should be more fast travel points or vehicle stations. Yesterday I completed a level and had to go back right to the start to the closest fast travel point. I think next time I will exit to the main menu and reload and see where it dumps me, but I gotta feeling it be at the last checkpoint, right near where I finished the level.

@JohnnyShoulder I’ve save/quit/reloaded a few times rather than trudge back through areas again.

And a quick try seems to show that every five skill points anywhere in the tree opens the next level.

I completed the main story of BL2 the other day and just made a start on the Tiny Tina DLC which has been great fun so far.

The whole thing is done with the team playing a Dungeons and Dragons style game with Tiny Tina as Dungeonmaster. There are fantasy tropes galore but loads of references to other things and I especially like the Dark Souls nods like lighting bonfires, "players" invading your game etc. Introducing Mimics to BL is not cool though..

Just started BL2 this week. So far I got to the part where the robot tells me that my ability to walk short distances without dying will be Handsome Jack's downfall. Beguiling little so and so, I doubt it will be quite so simple!

@Thrillho Tiny Tina’s DLC is really good. The humor is there in great abundance. The set up is very creative. I’ve been working through it for a while and I think I’m toward the end.
@Frigate I hope you enjoy it. It’s a good game for just some mindless fun.

@Frigate Enjoy! I hope it still feels as fun to play new now as it did when I first picked it up. Claptrap is the brilliant and annoying in equal measures through the whole game/series so I hope you're not too sick of him yet!

@Th3solution @Thrillho Thanks. I haven't progressed too much since then. I wrote somewhere else that the internet and cable service has been down for a large part of the weekend. So much that my wife and I went and bought an assortment of physical games on sale from Gamestop. Thus Sonic Racing has been the flavour for the past couple of hours! I will be chipping away at Borderlands 2 over the next couple of months though!

So i've been playing around Solo with the borderland Game of the year edition and i've been trucking around just fine then boom i was hit with a difficulty spike during a main story Mission is there any way to level it back down ? Or its thats the way its suppose to be. Its kinda a turn off for me yes ik what the kids say git gud (im i doing that right)... Anyways i pefer to get lost in my games instead of worrying about a difficulty spike.

@KnightWolf It could be that your not at a high enough level. You could try doing some side missions and level up a bit?

@KnightWolf When I was playing the Pre-sequel recently, some of the later missions i found a bit tough until I went back when I was a lever or two higher.

@KnightWolf Yeah the first Borderlands game is known for that. All you can really do is farm some levels till your high enough for the quest your trying to do.

@Th3solution I finished the DLC just now and the ending is pretty great.

I thought I'd have a go solo-ing the raid boss that appears after you finish. That did not go well..

@KnightWolf, Roland with his turret may be the best for solo play. It is almost as good as having an accompanying player. The turret can be improved with skill points and elemental effects. Also experiment with the skill trees.

With any character it is all about getting the best weapons, mods, and skill builds that work best for you. For example: Roland with a Hellfire smg, Volcano sniper, Havoc assault rifle, Tranfusion grenades, ammo regen mod, and a shield with health regen is my base gear i assemble as soon as possible. I then add electric and corrosion element like revolvers with scopes and high fire rates. The explosion element i use in the zombie dlc as explosion works the best. Overall the fire element works best for me for all non fire resistant enemies.

My strategy, PS3, is to go to T Bone Junction as soon as i can. There are 4 chests and many lockers with loot that can be farmed for cash and gear. The vending machines work so gear can be purchased and saved for latter use. Gear can be saved at the Underdome location. Also the ammo machines work and allow an early upgade to ammo carry amount. All dlc have vending machines and or loot chests to farm early after learning how to avoid getting killed.

That is how i do it on the PS3 version. I also had several plays before playing with the dlc. The dlc exploits help but levels are still a big factor. Enemies just 3-5 levels higher than the player require the best weapons.

@Thrillho Man, the Lair is Infinite Agony is intense. The hordes of enemies constantly coming is pretty tough. I keep thinking I’m near the end, but it keeps going. Did you do all the side quests too?

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Thrillho

@Th3solution Yeah, that area is a great example of one of the problems I have with BL2 in massive areas that you have to restart if you quit the game. There are at least a couple of lifts to use as shortcuts once you’ve cleared certain areas though.

After that area, you’ve one smaller area and a couple of boss fights to go.

I did all the side quests that appeared as you went (fetching crumpets, getting Claptrap’s beard, raising the dead etc) but have some of the post-DLC quests to do, including the raid boss. Some extra missions may have appeared in the village if you’ve not been back there.
