Cheers, I'll look out for them. Evidently if I have found any yet, they haven't been as good as the one I already possessed at the time.

Some of them don't unlock until you've completed level 5 of a certain weapon challenge. The "Shotgun Sniper" challenge didn't appear until I'd maxed out the shotgun's "Open Wide!" (point blank kills) challenge, for example.

If you're missing a challenge there's bound to be a list of them knocking about somewhere if you google.

I have had just one lock up, in the Bloodshot Stronghold @ Mad Mike. I went into dual wield, there were baddies everywhere, I'd thrown all my MIRV grenades and they were going off, I was firing x2 launchers ..... and then used my 'come at me bro' skill :D it locked up as I was flicking the fingers! Annoying as it was? I smiled LOL

Yeah, I've been specifically hoarding away in the bank or secret stash when I find them any item that will help my assassin complete all the challenges. Such as a shield that absorbs bullets, or a decent Bouncing Betty. Just so I can equip them briefly, go to a location with low level enemies and unleash fury heh. Need to crouch more with an assault rifle too...

Got the 90 seconds of Gunzerk, just need to get my assassin up to level 31 for that achievement and all four skill ones will be done. Tried the Bandit Technical "glitch" but couldn't get it to work.

For the passenger challenge?
It's not a glitch. Just get in the back of the Technical and kill enemies from there. Not in the Technical's turret, get in the passenger seats in the back. You can obtain this challenge in solo play. Unless it's been patched or something. It worked for me is all I can say.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Did/is anyone else finding the level gap between 47 and 50 massive? It's taking ages and is NOT fun anymore. I'm battering the DLC but there are enemies their that take your shield down in one and kill you in 2 or 3 BUT if you kill them? you get p1ss xp? and don't even get me started on the cursed pirate scum! worst baddies EVER!

I'd hit level 50 by the time I got through Sawtooth Cauldron on TVH, and that was without doing all sidequests (I left the ones with decent guns so I could complete them for level 50 weapons later on). It didn't seem like too much of a chore and as I said earlier in the thread, I thought the level cap had actually come way too early.

Playing solo the game gets pretty arduous in TVH. The enemy numbers and the damage they do become a real pain. Unfortunately, to max your level you have to keep pushing forward into new areas in TVH through the story missions because that's where the decent XP is. I spent some time in Caustic Cavern and Lynchwood too.

No, to unlock the achievement for being in deception mode for 10 seconds with the assassin before you reach level 31 (hence putting a skill point on the bottom of the right hand tree). Apparently if you're in the back of the Bandit Technical and shift position while in deception mode when the counter is close to zero, it can glitch and continue past the point it should quit. Look on YouTube, there are videos present.

Spent last night going over challenges I hadn't reached level 2 on yet with my assassin. Half of them were for the rocket launcher, which isn't a real surprise given I haven't use it a lot. In the process, completed round five of the Creature Slaughter Dome by virtue of BadAss Pyro Thresher + DBNO + rocket launcher = second wind. All I have left now is to kill one more Constructor, and get 750 point blank shotty kills to unlock Shotgun Sniper. So two challenges... shouldn't take too long hopefully.

I haven't touched the Assassin yet. It sounds pretty cool, I might go with that class next.
