Man i just started the second playthrough, and the game is brutal with gear, all my badass loot got outdated so fast. Damage values and shields literally double at lvl 35, i was getting creamed at the start.
Are you soloing? How's the difficulty?Nevermind, I just read the entire post...
I had about 10k in shields+health total. And the first bandit encounter, you know the one right before you meet Hammerlock got me into second wind twice. Just got to sanctuary again have 20k health/shields total and the difficulty has normalized a bit, tho it's still tougher then the first play through, at least so far.
The best part about playthrough 2 is that there are actually new types of enemies (it's not just bigger numbers like in the first game), billymongs that do corrosive novas, armored psychos.
