Talking Creepy Crawlies event-A great opportunity to beat insane horde?

It's not too difficult to get the medal for beating horde on insane, and if you want to do it with 3 hard mutators like me and can't do it on any other map apart from blood drive, read this. So from what i've seen so far, on this horde event the only enemies you can get that are capable of shooting you are bloodmounts, brumaks, reavers and shriekers. So this would be a great time to finally make use of that seemingly useless orange girder on Drydock that runs adjacent to the bridge over the frag grenades. All 5 players could stand on that girder and nothing can get near you besides wretches. If you do get bloodmounts/brumak/reavers/shriekers your team can just run to the small building where the boltok/gorgon pistol is with laser barriers on the door, a silverback watching the main door and there's a command centre in there. I will try this later with some friends and let you know how it went.

EDIT:
So my mate recorded us trying this tactic with a commentary overview, here it is (subscribe and like)

Thats a good strategy to exploit increasing your horde fortifications for stockpiled as well, since playing on insane with 3 hard mutators will increase them quicker as each dollar spent will count for around 50% more.

So I just tried it, it was going well although waves take longer than normal, but then we got shriekers which messed us up fairly badly But we know where we went wrong and we'll try it again tomorrow If anyone wants to try this with me message me

This is a fantastic method and can easily be done solo with infinite ammo and super reload mutators. Couple things I may add: Serapedes can still sometimes one-hit kill you if you're up against the cover points on the beam, and using a Scorcher rapes the Corpsers. (They take longer to kill with a starting weapon) Restart your initial wave until Corpsers, Tickers, and Serapedes spawn...they have no ranged attacks. As for boss waves, spawn Berserkers and you'll be okay.

Also, you can manipulate the enemies' pathing by moving from the left side of the beam (when facing the outer area with the cargo containers, same as the guy in the video) to the middle. When the enemies are below your position on the beam, you move left and they'll move up to try and get to you on your level...when they're moving you can move back to the middle and they'll attempt to follow you. They can't get to you, and this is ideal for hitting the backs of the Serapedes and hitting Corpsers with flame goodness.

Also, be careful as it is possible to fall off the beam if you position your rolls diagonally. I also think that if a Berserker is below you it can knock you off somehow after doing its charge attack...this happened to me a few times but I didn't think it was a big enough deal to test out :P

Ha this happened to me, luckily I didn't die despite landing on some tickers a corpser and a serapede. But thanks for the extra info overall

Looks like Creepy Crawlie Horde is back up so this method for Insane Horde is available again.
