I'm playing as Maya and somehow I've never been able to get the challenge "To Pay the Bills" to rank 5 to unlock the Admiral Asskick head.
This criteria for this challenge is:
Kill 1000 enemies while using your Action Skill
As a siren, Maya's action skill only holds one enemy in stasis for a few seconds, allowing her (or others) to shoot them while they are immobilized.
I'm curious as to what all counts as kills towards this challenge. I know that having an enemy phaselocked when you kill them counts, but is it possible to get more than one kill at a time? 1000 kills with Phaselock will take quite a while, if it isn't. There are a few instances that I'm not sure will count towards this challenge, but would definitely speed up the process if they did.
The main three scenarios I can think of are:
- Kills on enemies that aren't the target of phaselock during the time it is active
- Other players killing your phaselock target
- Abilities that cause AOE effects on your Phaselock target (like Helios or Cloud Kill) that can kill non-targeted enemies with fire/corrosive DoT
Which (if any) of these will give me progress towards "To Pay the Bills"?
