comment Can I customise the 'Exit' menu in Big Picture mode?
@kalina: I thought I was opted in to the beta on this laptop but I'm not, so beta is not required. Do you need more precise information?

comment How do I spawn Vermivorous The Invincible?
Caustic Caverns has the advantage that there's a tunnel full of Varkids with a little treasure room off to the side. You can sprint in there and hide in the treasure room while Varkid ultimate carnage happens outside.

Aha, the E-tech is corrosive. Thanks!

Verified my theory was wrong. Still not sure why two very similar sniper rifles do such different damage...

@OrcJMR: I have used that trick but I tend to jerk the shot. This one bursts pretty damn fast -- the base fire rate is quite high. I've had other sniper rifles with fire rates around 1.0 where that was easy.

@BenBrocka: Aha, good idea, I can just remove the +4 One Shot bonus and see if that changes it.

comment How do save game spawn locations work in Borderlands 2?
I think this answer should include a third option: If you last passed through a normal "gate" between locations (sorry, I can't find the official name) you'll respawn at the exit of that gate (both if you die and if you save/reload)

The advice on stunning is probably the key: I may not be producing enough damage to be taking on the enemies I'm fighting.
