    I've always liked sniper style, but I find myself being overwhelmed when I go after skags and they start buttfucking me. Then it comes down to my melee and then a shotgun instead of my pistol. Any hints or ideas? First FPS style I've played in a long time besides Riddick.

    Pistol/Hawk Mordecai is pretty powerful

    Rule of Borderlands is to always be backpedaling



    If you really want easy mode than use Lilith with SMGs and Phasewalk

    Once I beat the game, I'll try Siren.

    That is if the game doesn't let me play the game with my savefile.

    But yeah, Skaag is the least of your worries, lol.

    Later in the game, you are going to be facing much more menacing creatures, like Queen Spiders, Badass Brutes and the Old Haven guards.

    Skags and spiderants are the two most annoying enemies in the game. Those bastards just don't stop popping up, especially in the 2nd playthrough. Once you kill one, more and more keep coming until there you're surrounded by twenty corpses. Haven't gotten to the later parts of the game in the 2nd playthrough yet so I don't know how much harder the soldiers or aliens are going to be but the aliens were easily as hell to kill in the 1st playthrough which doesn't make them as annoying as the skags and spiderants.

    i thought playing as mordecai was a lot easier than lilith. it takes a lot longer for lilith to become self sufficient. for most of the game, i used her phasewalk mostly as an evade/retreat move than for offensive purposes.

    glad someone made a Borderlands thread today because I was just going to post a bitching thread. me and my brother have been playing splitscreen. I had a level 25 soldier and he was up to a level 25 bezerker on his profile with me as 'host'. I get on after saving/turning off system and my file is corrupt, his is fine.... ok... we were kind of far, but i'll start with a new guy. fire up my level 7 sniper that i had started on in single player and try to continue the splitscreen with my brother again, have to go through every fucking mission again, but got him up to level 22 with help with boosting from my brother, get him up to level 31 yesterday and get to a point i want to turn off system. I get to a save point, see the flashing save icon, wait a couple seconds after it goes away to make sure it's ok. turn off system, go on this morning, my file is corrupt AGAIN and my brother's is still fine. WHAT THE FUCK BORDERLANDS??????? :mad: :mad: this game is a good game, but fuck this, i'm not going through a third time :mad:

    Most likely, your brother played online with someone who had a modded savefile.

    Or you are not saving properly. (shutting it off before it saves the game completely)

    Something's definately wrong here. My Borderlands saves never got corrupted and there were times when I was playing and the power just suddenly went out. Maybe it's a hardware problem. Then again besides a few power outages I never shut my system off without at least exiting to the main menu so maybe you just turn it off too quickly after it saves while still in-game.

    Mordecai is overpowered. Either as a damage dealer build or just boosting his bloodwing.

    Siren is also pretty powerful when you've got the proc boosting ability and some big x4 elemental weapons.

    the only person he has ever played Borderlands with is me and we get to one of those saving checkpoint towers, watch the little halflife logo flash in the corner telling us it is saving and then wait about 15 seconds with no movement in or around the checkpoint and turn off the system. this fucking thing... :mad:

    Here.
    I've got a Brick at my friend's place on his PS3, a Hunter at like 25 and a Soldier about level 10 on my 360.

    But i've only played the game co-op. Never single player. :o

    Wow I just saw Avatar today and little things in that movie kept reminding me of Borderlands. The planet's name in it is also Pandora and there were alien-animals in the movie that looked almost exactly like Rakk's and Skag's. I wonder if it's just a coincidence or if one just copied the other.

    i'm level 35 mordecai right now. i'd use revolvers as a secondary, fuck shotguns. get a decent revolver with 2-3x scope and some elemental damage and you'll be good to go

    Lvl 37 Mordecai and most of my weapon experience goes to sniper rifles, revolvers, repeaters and eridean weapons.
