  • How to solo Hyperius? Katustrawfic

    As per my other question, I successfully found how to solo Pyro Pete. Hyperius however, seems so much more difficult.

    What is the most effective way to kill him? Should I go after the bots first then focus on him? Though once Hyperius loses his shield, he does a nova to take down mine. Since I'm using The Bee shield, this severely drops my damage output.

    Also, are there elements I should avoid or try to use? For example, Will he take more damage from shock weapons because of that 'shield' he has around him, or more damage from fire because his health bar is red, meaning flesh?

  • I personally when fighting him alone went for his robots first and then targeted him he has a shield that makes it so I think you have to do it that way. I used corrosive rocket launchers and a turtle shield and managed to kill him by myself

  • The easiest trick to solo Hyperius is to use the Evil Masher Glitch/Exploit. It hasn't been patched yet, but it's been around a long time. Basically, the Evil Masher is an assault rifle with sub-par stats, a reward from Marcus's mission (Kai).

    When reloading however, there is a chance to "power up" the weapon. Taken from the BL Wikia:

    There are at least six possible outcomes to Evil Smasher reloading:

    • Power up level 1, indicated by the power-up sound and explosion. Slight increase in power and reduced recoil for bullets in the next clip. No change in clip size.

    • Power up level 2, indicated by a louder power-up sound cue, and explosion larger than that of level 1. All round improved weapon stats compared with level 1. In particular next clip increases in size to about 30.

    • Power up level 3, louder cues than level 2, high stats than level 2, in particular clip size increases to about 50.

    • Power up level 4, the previous trend continues. All round improvement to level 3, in particular clip size increases to about 70.

    • Power up level 5, similar as before but bigger and better. In particular clip size increases to about 90.

    • Nothing. No sound or explosion. Weapon returns to base stats for the next clip.

    As for the glitch:

    As soon as the power-up sound and visual cue occur on Evil Smasher, and if player swap Evil Smasher right away, the power-up effects of Evil Smasher will now apply to the newly swapped weapon, and stacks on top of the weapon's other properties. ALL weapons in active slots now inherit ALL of Evil Smasher's special property of powering up (i.e. chance to power-up after reload, with same explosion and power-up sound).

    Take this example. Say when reloading Evil Smasher, the cues indicate the next clip with be at the highest power-up level. If the player switches immediately to, say, Infinity, before Evil Smasher finishes reloading, Infinity now has increased clip size, improved damage, fire rate and recoil reduction proportional to Evil Smasher highest power-up level. Even though the normal Infinity property of having clip size of 1 is "overwritten" by Evil Smasher power-up, Infinity's other original properties (never using ammo and bullet spread looks like infinity symbol) remain.

    When combined with the Infinity repeater pistol in the stated manner and The Bee, and due to the dramatical increase to fire rate, the player can kill any of the Invincible foes in a matter of seconds (usually less than five seconds, even on True Vault Hunter Mode). For example, Voracidous the Invincible can be killed before Chief Ngwatu spawns, and Hyperius the Invincible even before his loader minions have time to make it invulnerable. This exploit has, as such, game breaking effects. Also, when using this glitch with Voracidous, he will instantly respawn after going outside of the fightning area, without the need to pay Eridium again or rezone.

    This power-up effect applies to all weapons in active slots until the current game session ends, or switching back to Evil Smasher. It does not go away even after respawn, fast travel or entering inventory menu. In multiplayer session, the clip count may reset to base stat after fast travel, still all Evil Smasher properties remain.

    This glitch is most noticeable for weapons with low clip count, such as Rocket Launcher and Sniper Rifle. Rocket Launcher under this glitch can easily have clip size above 27, more than the maximum a normal backpack can hold

  • was standing with a man in white ahead of me. I knew...I just knew that he held the key to my destiny as a Rakyat Warriot. I immediately turned and walked the other way. Well, it turns out that if you walk far enough away from him, you get your guns back. I figured it's my hallucination and I should be able to murder whoever I want to, so I started shooting at the man in white. My SMG and shotgun... of him, but I couldn't shoot when shooting would result in him getting hit. My next thought was to try splash damage from an RPG, but I didn't have one in my inventory.

  • In RockSmith 2014, there's a game called Scale Warriors. At the end of each level, you go up against a big red dude. Sometimes when I try to hit Big Red, he raises a shield to block the attack. Unlike the shield in Ducks Redux, this one does not seem to be affected by taking a series of hits. And because no other scale notes are lit up, it doesn't seem possible to retreat, either. Are my Scale Warriors inevitably going to take damage once Big Red raises his shield? Or is there something I can do to avoid it?

  • to 5%, then he resumes. Ugh-Zan engages you, and cannon-spam to fight his regen is again useless, because... Ugh-Zan is again struck by five lightnings, but those lightning drop him at 20% health anyway, even if he had 60% to start with. They're just scripted that way. You have a little more time to strike this time around, and I got him to 1% at best. Then he resumes regenerating and I'm back... with over one million points (you lose 10k on death), then Ugh-Zan arrived. Well, my use-one-bar-then-spam-cannons strategy didn't work so well, perhaps unsurprisingly. So I kept throwing bars at his

While reading trough Slark's abilities, I couldn't find any hint of why would his autoattacks be counted as magic damage. His build was constituted by the following items: Assault Cuirass Power Treads Bottle Sange and Yasha Skull Basher Shadow Blade None of these appear to give magic damage in their tooltip. It's also worth noting that while he did cause normal damage, I wasn't affected by Skull Basher at all. How did he

Is it because I..., and he seemed the easiest of the Seriph Invincibles to farm. I did the mission for Moxxi to spawn him the first time, killed him, turned in the quest, and returned to Pete's Bar. I took the elevator down, spent the 8 eridium, and he did not hop down. The board was dark, and my 8 eridium was gone, but no Pete. I saved and quit, retried, and this time he did spawn. I killed him, and he dropped

  • I play with 4 of my friend in team ranked. One of my friends only plays one champion. If you look at his solo queue records, he only plays that one champion. (I won't say what champion in case he ever reads this) Basically, he plays top with this champion and builds it like an ADC. So we are down one tank. We can't put him as ADC either because he can't win that lane. He refuses to learn any other champions. One of my other friend only plays unorthodox champions like AP Xin Zhao. He refuses to play over powered champions like Vi or Lee Sin cause he doesn't like jumping the band wagon. I'm

  • damage the next stack, so it's not because of resistance, immunity or adaptive shields. I've even noticed these 1 DPS effects on myself now, and not while using an immunity or adaptive shield. It was Fire so it should have done normal damage. Also, oddly enough, I've noticed 2 damage per "tick" DOT damage from my mechro on both Fire and Shock; I think that might be because her Shock DOT is boosted... a fountain of 1s, instead of 2000-4000 per, which my effects normally do at level 50. It's not because the target resists it; I've seen it happen to Flesh enemies hit with Shock and Burn damage

  • interesting. After completing the The Scale-Lord quest I was able to strike the amber that held Korven the prime and release him from his slumber. When he awoke I decided that I didn't want to get tangled... and delight, Korven took part in the battle, though he didn't seem to be doing much damage. Anyway, my question is this: How can I keep Korven the prime as my pet? I imagine that he will continue to follow me as long as I don't take any of his quests and/or complete them. If I leave the dread wastes will I lost him? I'm reluctant to try it just in case I leave and find that he no longer follows me around
