    Indeed. Find a slightly elevated spot. Aim at downward angle. Pull trigger when he runs into your sights. You should crit every time.

    The problem is that before many must fall, you are now unstealthed in the middle of the enemy waiting 8 seconds to be useful again.

    You know, just because you've specced melee doesn't mean you can't use guns anymore.

    Plus if you get ahold of Law and Order, Many Must Fall is just a timesaver. You can perfectly walk up and stab everything except bosses in the face without a care.

    Even without them, if you're fast and careful you can definitely go around very well. It doesn't work until you have about 10 skill points to put into the tree, so I started sniper in the beginning - but when I respecced to melee, I never looked back. Yes, it's not as easymode - but by god is it fun as hell running around stabbing guys with a bayonetted shotgun!

    So how do melee classes fare when you're facing certain airborn bosses? Do you just suck it up and switch to guns for a time?

    I think there was a post about how, if you spam Zero's dash skill, you can fly around and chase down airborne enemies.

    Maya has her probably really impractical melee override skill.

    Gaige and Axton are out of luck personally, but their action skills can compensate.

    And I think a MeleeZerker's only solution is to cry in a corner and hope the boss feels so depressed at the sight that they kill themselves.

    Yeah, there happened to be a green quality fire sniper rifle (whose base damage was 50% above the rifle I was using) on the vendor when I got home yesterday. I also happened to find a 0ne Sh0t skill mod, so I respecced sniper. Night and day difference. I was putting everything, including freaking Goliaths and badass nomads, down with one shot unless it was fire resistant, but the same vendor had also had a blue shotgun with massive damage. Emphasis on had. And then I got to the Bloodshot Ramparts, where the rifle did next to nothing, but point-blank shotgun blasts were plenty effective, as was the rocket launcher that someone had conveniently left in a box at the beginning of the area.

    Of course, after I finished that area, the next drop I got was a corrosive sniper rifle. Then I noticed that I was level 16 and hadn't done the cult questline, so I equipped my ninja class mod and hacked my way through that zone (highest level enemies were 11). Good times. Almost as much fun as cruising around The Dust and smoking bandit vehicles.

    Just not nearly as effectively as you could otherwise. As for order...my experience was that I couldn't get it until I already had many must fall anyway.

    If you mean it wasn't very effective against loaders, you have to remember that the head isn't really a critical hit spot for them (there's the "eye", but it's pretty hard to hit it). Blow their arms off, though, that's a whole different story--you get decent criticals doing that.

    Yeah, aim for the joints of the robots and they just fall to pieces. Though I haven't had much trouble hitting that glowy sensor on their chest either. The robots in general are pretty easy to kill, though yeah, fire doesn't do much to them.

    Got a problem, though not as bad as it could have been.

    I had a major problem with my save file that I thought had lost me my higher-level characters, but a tech support guy I know was able to fix that. However, I'm still missing everything I earned from challenges with those characters, including Badass ranks and appearance options, but the challenges are all still marked off, so I can't just redo them.

    Any idea what I need to do? The proof that those challenges are done is right there, I'm just missing the rewards...

    I believe that's a problem with your profile.bin file, located in the same folder as your character save files, which contains your badass ranks and character customization unlocks. If you can't restore that file then I think you are out of luck.

    Being melee-focused doesn't necessarily mean melee only. You can use other stuff as well, you know.

    Normal flying enemies, you can Execute in midair (and if killing helicopters midflight with a knife doesnt sell you on this, I don't know what to tell you, dude). Bosses, honestly, since you're going to be stabbing everything not a boss with ludicrous ease, just keep an anti-boss weapon like a shottie or something in your second slot, and use that in the intervals where you can't reach with your whacking stick.

    I guess my only question is... are you not using the Steam Cloud for your saves? No issues then with messed up save files. Not sure if enabling it would fix anything, but it would be worth turning on later if you aren't using it to keep this from happening again.

    I've been using Cloud, and I was glad B2 had it, since I hoped it would keep me from losing chunks of progress and inventory like kept happening in the first game.

    Ah well, missing Badass ranks are a lot less painful than if I hadn't gotten back my characters and their inventories.

    I've actually heard that Cloud has caused some people to lose progress. I figure it's safer to just make manual backups.

    I read that was a glitch because of the update that added Gaige. I personally haven't experienced it, but I've heard that it still affect some people despite having been "fixed." Gearbox doesn't know why.

    At least, that's what I've heard.

    Also, this gun: + 5 ranks in Close Enough (Gaige, BFF tree) = Mass Carnage. Since getting this gun, I have been murderizing everything in hail storms of explosive bullets...sometimes, even when the baddies are around corners or behind me.

    I got it from Smash-Head (or out of one of the crates in his area) at the conclusion of Note for Self-Person.

    I have heard that the Conference Call (a Hyperion Shotgun the Warrior drops) is utter godhood in the hands of a Mechromancer with Anarchy & 5 Ranks in Close Enough.

    I've been playing Gaige for the past week. With her, I was able to beat the Bandit Slaughter at level with no deaths, when my Gunzerker wasn't able to finish the last round until he was 10 levels above it.

    On a related note, if anyone can trade me a class mod that adds more points to Close Enough, I want one bad. Particularly if it's a +6 bonus, I really want to see what a 110% ricochet chance does.

    There's nothing negative to signing up, you get free stuff, and Gearbox has already said they plan on expanding on more than just Golden Keys. In the future, codes will be given out at conventions that give exclusive guns, skins, heads, or other neat promo items, for example.
