Borderlands - Soloing Crawmerax The (Not So) Invincible
Just showing you how I solo Crawmerax, and how you can too.
Before you ask, yes the Aries is a modded weapon, a friend of mine duped it for me. My found Aries (see my inventory) isn't, but I'm showing you with the modded one to make the vid go by faster.
And the 100 Backpack slots is due to a removed glitch in the game, only worked in version 1.0 and is no longer possible.
NO MODS WERE EVER USED ON THIS CHARACTER.
Level 61 Mordecai
Crawmerax is best fought in a full game of 4 players because the drop rates are 4x higher. However, if you dont have any friends online, or you're simply playing by yourself, or you're tired of those dicks joining, stealing all the loot and leaving, then heres a way you can fight Crawmerax by yourself.
All you'll need is:
A level 61 Character
A High Level Shock, Corrosion, and Incindiary Weapon
(I use Aries, Defiler and Volcano)
Transfusion Grenades and/or life heal/steal abilities (Aries lifesteals)
2,000 Capacity sheild or better
Theres a particular spot that protects you both from Crawmerax, and his worms, and all their ranged attacks. Most people would hide in the spot by the rock wall and glitch Craw out, but this doesnt always protect you from his worms, or craw's ranged attack (If he uses it).
From this particular spot you can crouch underneath the overhanging rock and be completely protected from ranged projectiles. Also since you're a few elevations down you're completely protected from any melee attacks. The only thing you have to worry about is any worms that get close enough to ranged attack, or timing craws acid bomb attacks.
When you first start, take out the initial worms first:
Use Shock on the regular Worms
Use Corrosion on the Armored Worms
Use Incindiary on the Green Worms
Once the intial worms are dead, any other worms wont target you unless promted from seeing you, or getting splashed. Since you're a few elevations down the only time they'll see you is if you poke your head up, so try to limit your head poking ups to a minimal, or prepare to fight some worms.
If you do get downed, then the worm that downed you is most likely at point blank range, so just whip out your element gun and give it a few point blank shots to the face and get back up.
Slowly pick away at Crawmerax's critical points, hiding under the rock to avoid his ranged attacks and keeping the wormies at bay, eventually you'll take him out and will be able to reap the rewards.
This technique might take you awhile to perfect, but once you do you'll be Soloing Craw after Craw.
Before anyone asks:
I used "Xfire" to record the video, I suggest you use this also.
