Tier three race is rediculous !
 
I'm having some problems with this side mission :/ I using the light vehicle and using all the shortcuts but always manage to barley get there by 4 to 5 ad counts and I fail is there any tips yet o. This am I missing important routes other than the 2 ramps that take you up on the highway ?

Watch this video.


Watch where he boosts in the video and mimic it. You can also pull up a little bit further at the start than he did and gain a couple extra seconds.

Thanks for posting the video. It helped me beat this race. Do you have to do the "rematch" too?

vVLelouchVv 11-20-2012 05:21 PM

i believe you do have to do the rematch since it counts as a separate mission in the quest log so i would do it

calex deus 11-20-2012 07:28 PM

Hmmmm gave it one attempt there before looking on the internet for solution as I knew from the time given it was going to be a pain, I wonder is this one you can cheat using two controllers ........ I try it later and report back if it works :p

Iv AJay vI 11-20-2012 08:54 PM

I just did it in Co-Op. I hate the timed missions, so I just had a friend sit at the second check point and I ran through the other two. Knocked em out very easily that way.

IOnEI Falcon 11-20-2012 09:00 PM

AJay, how does doing it co-op or splitscreen help with the time?

Both of us sitting at different checkpoints means I don't have to do an entire lap. How does that not make sense?

ChickinOnaChain 11-20-2012 09:08 PM

So is this DLC a bunch of timed races? If it is, I'm wasting my time DL-ing now. I hate them because I suck at them.

No, it has some stupid tier'd side quests that you have to do three times. One of them is a race and it's just a pain in the ass. This DLC is ridiculously short though.. Not a fan.

Thanks for that AJay. I'm still DL-ing and dreading it already. Do it three times...WTF?

VVh1pCr3am 11-20-2012 09:19 PM

None of the rematch tier side quest missions are required for the side quest achievement. I had this quest left and when I completed tier 3 the side mission achievement popped. I still had this quest's rematch to do but had already done the other two side quests that have rematches. So I would assume that the rematches are not required.

I couldn't picture how the racing went with two people. Never done it before. I wasn't sure if you were racing each other or if it was really co-operative.

Same here!

Iv AJay vI 11-20-2012 10:33 PM

Even the raid boss was easy as fuck. All I need is the rest of the Moxxi Portraits and I'm done.

tripleb2k 11-20-2012 10:35 PM

How long is it taking to complete? I read 5 hours (can't remember if it was on here or somewhere else).

Lol 5 hours? Maybe if you do P1 and P2. You're looking at more like 2-3. The main quest is really short, and if I remember correctly, there are only like 12-13 sides (some of which are tier'd). Overall it's a really short, really sub-par DLC. No bueno.

That's all? hmm still better than Underdome.

InfiniteRefrain 11-20-2012 11:06 PM

You do NOT need to follow the track -- just be close the markers and you can drive off the road to shave off the seconds you need. BE SURE to use the large ramp to get to the highway section above the area and then drop back down -- can bypass 1/4-1/3 of the track

MysticMidnite04 11-20-2012 11:55 PM

I did it in Co-Op as well and recommend doing so if you can get another player to help. It's so much easier when two players camp each half of the track

JuSt BLaZe 11-21-2012 12:49 AM

Man THIS MOTHERFUCKING GAME IS SO MOTHERFUCKING BROKE I CAN'T MOTHERFUCKING believe it.

Those fucking bikers all over the place and when I try to clean the lap they re-spawn as soon as I start the race and even worse their vehicles remain on the road as a fucking invisible wall which makes me stuck sometime.

Fix this shit, Gearbox up my ass...

Not likely, since you can complete the quest as many times as you like.

Yeah, that happened to me as well. Luckily the invisible wall disappeared completely at some point and I was able to complete the races.

this race is a fucking joke!! im so pissed off right now doing this. its not even the route you take, its the fucking shitty driving mechanics. you could do the exact same jump twice and land in completely different ways and that fucking annoying little stop turn that you do, that happens when you turn on a small ramp is fucking infuriating!!

On the brightside, I'll end up suffering and doing it so then I can join your game and you hop in the gunners seat. XD
