I just started playing the ultimate vault hunter mode and even though my level is around the enemies' level I'm fighting (even higher levels in some cases) and my weapons are the most powerful ones I can possibly get (via the golden box), I'm still hardly dealing any damage and both my shields and health are dropping in only a couple of hits. What's odd though is that I'm using the commando as my character class and my turrets are probably the only thing getting me through missions. They seem to be strong enough to beat my enemies but I can barely leave a scratch. Does anyone know what might be going on?
You can look at UVHM wiki page to see what`s changed. Specifically this:
- Enemy health generally increased 4x
- Enemy levels are automatically scaled above the character of the highest level, along with their health, attack, and loot level. Normal enemies will be the same level while greater enemies will be two levels higher. The change of level happens when characters gain a level or join/leave a game
Some other changes listed there tip you off that use of
slag and elemental attacks may be essential to make progress in this mode.
