Mothrakk seems really difficult to kill when playing single player. Is there an easy way to kill her?

Bring a vehicle and use the mounted gun. Either will work, Rocket Launcher is easier but will take more time, Machine Gun is a bit quicker but a little bit more difficult because you actually have to aim it.

While in the gunner seat of the vehicle Mothrakk won't actually fire on you. Cheezy strat (AI Bug), but it works.

For a valid strat, run to the bottom of the hill and take cover under the roof of that building and just pop out to shoot her and pop back under while she shoots fire down. A good sniper rifle is best for this strat. It'll take a while, but you'll get it eventually.

I totally didn't know that re: vehicle AI bug. Huh. Another strategy I used was going to that land bridge (near the entrance of the Shock Cave I believe) and hiding under there while taking potshots at her. Bonus there is that there's also a respawn point right there in case you die. Overall, I'd say coverage from above is your most important priority, no matter where you decide to fight. –  FAE Jul 17 '10 at 12:15
    
I managed to do it with the machine gun on the vehicle, thanks. I didn't know that it had a lock on feature, which was really handy. I basically lined the vehicle up and pressed X (PS3) until the target looked on. Then all I had to do was drive round and hold the fire button down. –  Daniel Ballinger Jul 18 '10 at 8:57
    
Apparently the AI bug mentioned in this answer doesn't happen all the time... The Mothrakk definitely attacked (and killed) me while I was shooting it from the gunner seat. –  Tom Jun 26 at 21:41

Mothrakk is weaker versus explosive weapons more than anything else. So get a good explosive weapon, hide in the car garage and ping away!

If you're running a Soldier having a nice Ammo Regen mod is also very handy.

Start the mission, i.e. get Mothrakk going. Spawn a machine gun runner and go up to the bandit camp on the mountain behind where the three beacons you light for the mission are. This puts you about level with the circling Mothrakk. Line up so that you have a flat piece of ground that you can go forward and back on. Lock the turret guns on and start firing. She will come over to bombard you. Keep locked on and firing with the turret gun, and drive forward/back in a straight line about 50 metres at a time to avoid her bombardment. She may lose interest and go back to circling, in which case repeat the process.

One good way is to hide inside the vehicle station shown in the map (the fire balls won't hit you there):

Good place to be

You go out, shoot and go back inside the vehicle station waiting for the fire balls. And keep repeating the process.
