    What bosses/parts of the game did you find hardest?
    For the first playthrough it was the fist thresher you fight (the big one) and that mission where you have to add sanctuary to the fast travel network. For the second playthrough it was those 2, and Mad Mike. That guy will one shot you. A lot.

    i used to go head first into defeating high level bosses(some were upto 4 lvl higher than me, lol)

    i used to find dragon like stalker things hard at first. mostly because i was underlevel and i didnt carry any shock weapon to counter their shield. and i am sniper.

    then i had a hard time in bloodshot stronghold. thats when i figured out i was underlevel since all the weapons i were getting were of much higher level than i was at, and hence i was unable to use them.

    i have all my points to the sniper tree in my assasin skill thingy.

    I made this same mistake for the first 20 levels or so. PLaying lvl50 right now...let me say that while the sniper tree is awesome for damage it does nothing for survivability. The thing about Zero is none of his top skills are really that great.

    Try respec'ing and spending some points in Cunning and Bloodshed.

    Innervate and Grim will keep you alive and you will still have points in sniper tree. Like Killer, headshot and bore. Course depends on your level...

    My current build is 11 in Snipe, 21 Cunning, 13 Bloodshed.

    its all up to how you play. i find zeros sneaky tactics very easy to play with.
    not to mention you need to match the guns to your play style as well. you cant take zero and go full on assault with shotguns and assaults. i only have a big ass shotgun for backup and a pistol for rapid fire. rest i carry two snipers all the time.

    also i us a lot of bombs. the one that steals health. lol. also i use shields that go boom when depleted.

    Was going to write something to the effect of that, but you beat me to it.
    I found Zer0 to be not too bad for solo, even specced all sniping, as long as you take full advantage of his action skill. It can be offensive or defensive depending on when you pop it and I found the best tactic for solo(at least for me) with him was to snipe and land as many crits as you can while approaching the target. Get in close, unload with a shotgun and melee, then pop Decepti0n and fall way back. Rinse and repeat. Very few non-badass enemies can withstand one full barrage like that, much less two. Battles move very quickly and usually end up being one-on-one or one-on-two fights as all of the little guys go down with one crit snipe leaving just the big baddies to clean up when I get in close.

    i only land critical hits. even when defeating the warrior i found a critical spot in its mouth(the lower jaw) and i hit it to get >8000 k damage with a corroding sniper from maliwan. i love maliwan guns. they are awesome, specially the snipers. the dahl are good for assault, and the jacobs are good for pistols. jacobs makes decent rifles too.


    hyperion guns seem to have a higher bullet speed compared to others.

    Of course FUN is the most important part of playing a Game. I died to often going full sniper, eventually something will be within melee range and that is where I felt Zero falls apart and it wasn't fun for me.

    Spec'ing the cunning skill was the best change I made. still hitting crits for 600K+ but I am able to soak damage and because Innervate reduces cooldown a ton I can phase a lot more often, and heal while in phase and regen shields. I guess Cunning just matches my play style more.

    It's the old Glass Cannon vs Tank debate.

    You're trolling. No one would ever admit to playing MW3 and also claiming to have skills.

    Lvl 8 Mechromancer. From what I can see she has a lot of similar skills as the commando in her first tree, and she is awesome with shock weapons, or will be down the road. To bad it wasn't corrosive.

    I like the bot she summons...kind of makes the commandos turret seem not as cool.

    Steadiness when scoped and bullet spread/deviation from where it is aimed.
