Okay, kiddos, sit down, zip your cake holes, it’s story time:
You’ve probably heard that Gaige + Fibber = Massive doom, right? Hoo boy, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Have you ever played the “Sir Hammerlock’s big game hunt”-DLC? Then you might be familiar with a boss called Arizona. Drifter, pretty big, around a gajillion HP, right?
I was OP2 back when this happened, so old ‘zona was around Lvl 76 I guess.
Playing in co-op mode, me as Gaige, my co-op partner as Axton; had about 300 Anarchy stacks.
Emptied three magazines of my slag Deliverance on her, co-op partner goes full-on with his double Slag-Turrets and a shock elemental Butcher, DT does his thing too, her life doesn’t go down an inch. Maybe a millimeter, hardly visible.
So I’m like, alright, let’s switch weapons, try something different, maybe slag just doesn’t work for her.
I had a shock-elemental Redundant Fibber in my backpack, which had worked pretty good for me so far, though I had never used it with this many stacks before, but since this was going nowhere I figuered it’s worth a shot.
I aimed at the grund below ‘zona, to get the most out of my Anarchy Tree, with the ricochet effect and all, and pull the trigger twice. Fricken twice. And she’s FRICKEN DEAD. We both emptied three magazines of shotgun ammo on Arizona with top-notch turrets and DT as support and nothing happens; I shoot her with the fibber twice and she was d-e-a-d.
My confession is: even though I got the Fibber fair and square after the completion of “a real boy”, I almost completely stopped using it after this incident because it feels like fishing in a barrel.
I still can't get over how Jack was so adamant that he was the hero and that his actions were for good, even though they clearly weren't. It makes me wonder what he saw in the Vault. Did he see the whole story of BL2? Did he see something else entirely? Did he see Pandora falling victim to a great threat that we haven't seen yet (and will possibly see in BL3?) And he never mentioned just what story he was the hero of. Was he in a different story than we were while in BL2?
