I'm at the point where I am unable to solo missions and even side quests without dying a very large quantity of times, which isn't fun. I'm overleveled yet enemies still kill me [b][u]a lot[/u][/b] faster than I can kill them. I get the game is designed for co-op but I really don't like playing with other people. Even if I wanted to (which I do now cuz I can't progress solo without losing all my money to deaths), none of my friends play the game and randoms rarely matchmake with me even though I set matchmaking to public. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted. At least it took me longer to quit this game than the last new game I tried; Borderlands 2 lasted me like 30 hours while R6 Siege lasted me like 3. It's a good game, but I just don't think I can play it anymore.
Okay, I’m gonna tell you to get the Bee shield, the most broken shield in the whole game. Good news, if you’re up to farm, it’s easy to get. Bad news, you’re gonna have to touch the Tiny Tina dlc, which has major spoilers. What you do is go through the campaign until you get to the forest, and farm the treants. Eventually you’ll get a shield that adds a flat out damage bonus to each projectile fired by your guns, it’s amazing but broken as hell. It’s the only way I could complete UVHM.
