Dang, that might be a problem. 6am UK is 1am here. I work from home so most times are good. But I'm usually calling it by that time.
Yeah, it's a bit of an issue when trying to play with others!, I do sometimes get on in the evening, but then it's the middle of the day in the US!

Middle of the day is fine for me. I'm home all day. :) If you see me online and want to play just send me a message.

If I'm around I'll join in. I might be able to do a midday Friday or Saturday.

I only have a Siren on Xbox and have never run nurse with it, so I'll have to look at the gear. It's been a while. Just got back in to playing the original BL on PC.

If I can get my brother to join in, he has a gunzerker on Xbox that's set up pretty well for Hyperius.

Sweet, I only have a single character, a commando.

So I'm on UVHM, a lvl 52 Mechromancer. I'm having serious issues with the start of my playthrough. I can't even escort Claptrap to his ship before dying 10 times. I might not have the right guns farmed but I have a few legendary and pearl guns.

Should I just go to TVHM and try to farm some better guns there from the raid bosses and such?

Thanks everyone :).

Since these games are getting updated this week (Apr 3) with the UHD pack I'm planning to jump back into BL2.
I know the 4 campaign DLCs were lengthy and meaty but how long are the headhunter missions? Do they have a small plot/story or is it literally just a single mission?

I haven't played this game in years, so I forgot some stuff. Is there a good place to farm eridium? I'm level 20 currently.
You can farm it right in Sanctuary using the lockers by Tannis. If you don't like that option...

Bad Maw was popular at low level. There's also a run that I can't remember the specifics of offhand. Sure the vids are still all up on YT.

Just a single mission and relatively short but also a lot of atmosphere and environmental stuff.

Just finished my Siren playthrough.
The game still holds up well and the gameplay is as great as ever. It still looks great as well IMO (especially on PC with PhysX) and now I'm even more hyped for Borderlands 3 running on the newest Unreal Engine.

Is it viable to play with a fresh char in UVHM with gibbed? My friend and I dont have time to play twice with a new char so our only choice is to use gibbed to edit a fresh char into a level 50. is it viable? Will all the campaign locks such as weapon slots and inventory slots still get rewarded in quests? Or do I have to unlock those as well in gibbed? Any other issues to consider?

If you know what you're doing all of that should be possible. Gibbed is fine for basic things, like XP, skill points and money, but adding things like shields, weapons, class mods, etc. it can be a pain in the ass to use.
