    I need to know something. I am on my first single player playthrough, on Jacobs Cove now, finished the vault quest.. I was surprised the game let me keep playing instead of ending. So i finished a lot more quest and cound not fins any active bounty boards.. so i started on the DLC.. what will happen when all the DLC and all the challenges are done? Will the game end? How can you keep playing with no quests? Is there a way?

    I have played through most of the DLC3 - General Knoxxx and it was great. It was much closer to what I wanted from the game. Fun, goofy characters, larger sprawling areas, a reason to actual use a vehicle, and a decent challenge. I will now grind out Moxi because I wanted the bank and I will check on the Zombie Island later.

    Ive been playing for a few weeks off and on now. I have to say this is one of the funner single players Ive played in a while. There is soooo much to do and see. Just hit level 30 Soldier.

    I dunno about that. They may have stopped working on Borderlands and moved on to Borderlands II.

    There's two problems with the Crawmerax:
    1) Little Crawmerax's keep harrassing you and they're harder to kill than the big one.
    2) It is very hard to hit the Crawmerax where it hurts.

    The only good thing is that the one sniper bullet in the the places it is weak is all it takes to destroy it. The problem is, those spots are very hard to hit while being harrassed. Put pretty simply, you need more than one player to pull it off. It's not a one-person job.

    There will be 3 of us. Soldier, Hunter, and Siren (me). I did the scouting for weaknesses already. We are going to get the game plan together and kick his ass Tuesday. I save the second raid on GK's store house just for us to get new weapons for the job.

    Plan so far:

    *Drop off unneeded weapons and everything else in Bank at Moxi's. (They used my game to level up, so their stockpile is crap and 2 or 3 good guns).

    *Do my second raid on GK's storehouse to get new, rare, and/or awesome weapons.

    *Practice Teamwork in Moxi's Arena.

    *Kill Crawmerax (Shoot glowing spots, they distract, I sneak around in Phase and shoot big back spot. They take on claw spots, while he taunts when i destroy back. Finish off with head/eye shots)

    Armored Wurms = Corrosive weapon
    Crawmerax = Shock or High rate of fire weapons (abuse daze effect)
    Green Wurms = Fire
    White Wurms = Not sure about this, but I swear melee and none elemental damage seems to work best for some reason

    My loadout:

    V. Crux Shotty (Bring out your dead..) @ lvl. 52
    Hellfire SMG (We don't need no water...) @ lvl. 55
    Pearl Brutal Revolver (name not rarity) @ lvl. 60 (978 damage with 2.1 fire rate)
    Double Anarchy @ lvl. 57 (178 x 4, 84 round clip, 10.8 fire rate)

    *I am hoping to get this gun called "The Chopper" to replace the Pearl Revolver.

    I can tell you right now, the key is to triangulate it. Get as far away from each other as possible so when it goes to own one of you, the other two get easy shots at at it. But basically, you only got like 4 minutes to put it down.

    I was at level 60 and I think the Crawermax was at level 64.

    I doubt Moxi would be of any use for teamwork. It's one massive target compared to many weak ones.


    FYI, the places where it takes damage is a huge strip on the back and then I think 4 small strips on the legs. None of which can be hit while it is attacking you. Only a flank can kill it. Mind you, those spots are pretty weak, but hard to hit.

    As far as I could tell, shooting anything except those spots did nothing to it.


    I could haul all the loot out by myself in like 3 trips. You should have no problem picking it all up with the three of you. If you can't fit it all, you can go use the elevator, sell the cheap junk, and run back and grab more. It WILL disappear given enough time so it's best that you all pick it all up in order from valuable to cheap and decide who gets what after it's all collected/sold.

    Did I say teamwork. That is what I told them, sorry. I meant practice them doing what I tell them.

    All you gotta do is go get your murder on, and we will all pretend no body saw nothin'.

    DLC3 General Knoxxx changes the max level to 61, adds in new vehicles, mods, weapons, enemies, etc. Just play it as all the enemies start at level 54, when you were capped at 50 and stay ahead of you in rank till 60, so you always get more points than the base game.

    Exactly! The new, higher level weapon drops were introduced to the core game with the new patch, not the expansion. They want to try and entice you to buy the General Knoxx expansion. Like the carrot dangled in front of you but just out of reach. I would have to say that General Knoxx is the best DLC so far (with Zombie Island coming in at number two) so it's worth it if you've got an extra $10 burning a hole in your pocket.

    That's a DLC!?! I thought that was a lead-in for Borderlands 2 and I thought they were done with DLCs for Borderlands.

    Did anyone know that this game has a benchmark? Just create a shortcut and add
    timedemo1_p -benchmark -seconds=60 -novsync

    Hmm, I'll try 120 seconds and see if that works. You can find the file called benchmark.log in My Documents\My Games\Borderlands\WillowGame\Logs

    Edit: 60 seconds is the limit. Beyond that you stare at a wall.

    Nope, but I'll have to check that out.

    In other news, if you loved Borderlands (like me), check this out:
    http://kotaku.com/5633822/its-a-topsy turvy-world-because-firefall-is-going-to-be-free

    Looks awesome, and I just found out it will be free 2 player. Also, supposedly the microtransaction items will not cause imbalance.... supposedly.... :wtf:
     
    DanishDevil and Radical_Edward say thanks.
