Oh my goodness. I was doing so well with that run. Got so lucky with medipacks. And then I spawned in the middle of a pack of barrels, former commandos, barons of hell, with NO cover because of the boxes. My only option was to try and take cover as I could and fire some off.

Then this baron comes out of nowhere and is like HI GAIZ and blows up all the barrels.

Phases don't spawn that reliably that early on...and if phases do spawn, it's more than likely that those darn formers have hogged them all.

I'm not sure if toting an elephant shotgun around with no points into Reloader is a good idea though. That thing has an abysmal reload time. But I love it over the tac shotty.

I got lucky with Power mods spawning and I was going for Gunrunner, so thought why not. It's great for corner shooting.

The elephant gun wasn't the cause of me dying though. It was skill/abysmal luck with the RNG. I reloaded safely then moved in that game.

It's only 84% because of the mobs on that level :c

I still wouldn't have made an elephant gun at that point. You don't want to spend 2.5s reloading a weapon that you can only fire once before having to reload. If you were hellbent on getting an elephant gun at some point then I would have thrown just one P mod onto that shotgun for the time being, and then only assemble the elephant gun after having gotten Shottyman, or at least Rel2. Good on ya for cornershooting and stuff but I still think it's too dangerous to be cornershooting with an elephant gun that early on especially since you chose to get Dodgemaster as opposed to Shottyman. Just what I think.

Cornershooting is pretty much a staple tactic of early-midgame no matter what build and doing so with a decent amount of proficiency is why I always go for hell's arena on a non-AoB game. Which is why I struggle so much with the chained courts in comparison ;_;

I don't believe that I had a combat shotgun at that point, or I would have had that in my prepared slot for use in other situations. I also didn't see the 2.5 second reloading time, and in theory that sounds like a bad idea. However, even with hell knights I had no trouble corner shooting with it - the extra damage does a LOT of knockback and kills a lot faster. It also pretty much guarantees a kill on lesser enemies at edge of LOS. In situations where the elephant gun wasn't enough I did have the double shotty to fall back on, so I didn't really have too much trouble.

I can see where you're coming from and i'll keep it in mind before hastily assembling another one though.

The reason I was not taking reloader and shottyman was because I was doing a gunrunner build. Although, your post DID give me an idea.

As for not sucking on UV, 8 platinum and 1 diamond badge >_< I don't think I could even get one platinum badge, except for abusing AoOc with the 1000 one.
