Stuck...Act 3, Chapter 5 Insane

I have been sitting here for the better part of 2 hours trying to get past the end of this act. I am right at the end on the elevated platform trying to fend off all of the lambent humans, boomers, grubs and lambent grubs. Right about the time the lambet stalks show up I die every time. It seems like I just cant keep up with the amount of enemies that are flooding the area.

I have tried numerous different stratagies to get past all of this but cant seem to get anything to come together.

Any advice or tips on how to make it through this section?

Arcade mode with super reload, infinite ammo, and insta gib melee with 4 players? Also, frag tag the path that the formers run out of.

May I ask why? Is it just to gain some sort of personal achievement? I'm just curious...
As to strategies. My understanding was always that insane was not meant to be played solo. It can be done of course. And it is done. Especially now that mutators exist. But I'm not sure what to tell ya. Sorry mate.

It makes my naughty bits tingle when I can do it on my own.

I finally gave up on this part though and joined a arcade party. Even with the mutators turned on it was still a shit show to make it through that one section.

I found kinda ignoring the guys coming out the tunnel is fine as long as you don't get caught by a random Boomshot shot.

I started by shooting those guys for a bit until the grapple hooks came up, then you want to focus on these guys else you'll just get gunned down in seconds. When the formers arrive you want to focus on clearing them out as quickly as possible and once they're all gone run to the very back of the elevated platform and wait for the stalks to sprout. Here, they should be distracted by Sam, Anya and Dom so you can shoot them from behind without too much trouble, shoot the pods when you get the chance.

I managed to do it this way after dying far too many times trying to stay at the front of the platform.

What my team did was have two people stand at the gap where the Formers will come from, and have the other 2 suicide. The two will respawn in the cave where the Formers will spawn. They will take care of the formers inside. If anyone on the outside dies, hopefully the formers will be taken care of by then, and then your entire team can take potshots at the remaining locust outside.

Yeah me and a buddy of mine had a bitch of a time at this part. We just got lucky I guess. I opted for the Sawed-Off when all the formers came so I could take out large groups of them at once. It was trial and error the whole way, but eventually we got it.

When I did this solo, I started by moving towards the back a bit, let the AI deal with the Boomers. Shoot off any hooks that come on the side and then get ready and shoot all the Formers. Once the Formers are done, move all the way to the back and shoot the pods on the stalks and any lambents, wait for cutscene...
