Yea sorry, forgot to post my update. It worked just fine even with thumper and a shield offhand, the only reason it was tight for me was because I forgot to use life steal food and overcharged my rocket turret which kept knocking subject 7 away. Even still, I pinned him against a wall and proceded to control the fight from then on, never dipping below 20% hp.
Nice guide, thanks. Now if only I can get Light up the Darkness done...
Overcharged Rocket Turret does not do knockback. It only Knockdowns. What you did was overcharge Thumper Turret which indeed does launch.
Me and my boyfriend tried this, worked wonders, he got it on the first try and I got it on the second try. On the first try I took the flamethrower in the arena to use the tool belt skill and get back to bombs, only to discover that the burning gambit put me in combat so I couldn't access my bomb kit after. That was a bit stupid of me. After I did it without the switching because I didn't feel confident enough to switch fast right before I would get sent in and it worked perfectly still.
Thanks a lot for this build/guide, it's been incredibly helpful. Have all my likes!
Glad it worked for you.
On a side note it's ok to use Incendiary Ammo before you get teleported. Usually when you have text message you will be next. Use it and switchback. Buff stays on.
Still it's not needed but something good to have ^^
