Also the bouncer cannon, flail gun and penetrator all RAGE burnouts.
Not really, but there were some frustrating times when I didn't have my bouncer cannon, flail gun, or what have you and they'd get me cornered and beat me mercilessly. And they're pretty brutal once a big group gets you cornered. Kind of like piranhas.

However, I do agree that burnouts always have some sort of environmental hazard on the perimeter of them that you could easily kick or slide them into.

Playing in reverse sounds like a plan, but bearing in mind that I (and many others I believe) went straight into hard mode without playing the other kids modes, it's not possible for us to play in reverse.

I shall be using the tips here to get through some of the difficult points so cheers for those.
I like the tip for doing it reverse and did consider doing it that way myself as you get given a load of points and can just buy whatever weapons you think are necessary for that section, such as charged boneduster, charged screamer and thumper for the minibosses on Act 7 Chapter 1.
I'm going to try it the normal way first and see how I do, and resort to tactical play if it all goes wrong, I'm confident I can do it right though.
For me and I knew it would be an issue as I had issues on normal would be where you are on the back of that train. I did that in about 3 goes which I was very pleased with tbh on very hard as it was about 10 on normal lol

Disco boss is not one of the three choke points that I think is most difficult in the very hard mode of this game. If it is, then I think you'd be in for a really hard time...

Nevertheless, there's always youtube.

I found it not to hard, only had one major frustration point in the game. The train in, I believe, Act1, chapter 2. Once past this point not a single problem anymore, just keep the ammo filled up, thumper, screamer and flailgun was the way to go for me.

I agree. The disco was rather easy. If he was having problems with that I doubt he will be able to get through the lift or the room with multiple minibosses later on.

No points that will have u raging but some points will only work with certain guns eg when you have to defend the elevator with saranno, use the flail gun to kill the things that look like phase ticks from singularity

I just finished this section today and died three times as well. I thought I was going to die way more than that since on normal I died at least five or six times. It was a lot easier the second time around.

It's funny how people get stuck on different points.
I got through the train bit without dying.
And Neeker75 and BigBear2Face - I think the problem I had with the disco miniboss was a lack of patience. Once I stayed hidden and made sure I was fully healed before poking out I didn't have any trouble and since then the only trouble I've had is finding the time to play it.
Got as far as 5-3 last night and I've not struggled on any other section or with any other minibosses. I have seen some useful tactics for the sections with multiple minibosses and I shall use those.
Hoping to get the game finished tomorrow evening.

Just remember these things for that section:

#1 Thumper is your best friend
#2 Quickly get into one of the secluded high corners for cover (the one up and to right of where you come in is best)
#3 The Flail Gun and Bouncer are great weapons to have here

I also read in a different thread about farming XP from the newsbot that keeps reappearing later in the game. Hopefully that will make the boss room a breeze since you can just use a charged Boneduster shot on the bosses and then thumper the room to hell.

All finished. Cheers for the advice all.
I died three times in the boss room. I used a flailgun and boneduster, plus the good old thumper.
Did the lift third time, once I got the pattern down. But that's the 1000 gs.

Congrats! I am still working on it but have been out of town for a week. Trying to finish mine before the Gears Beta

I did the act 7 chapter 1 room with 4 bosses first attempt luckily!
I watched a guide on youtube first though as I heard it was really tricky.
here's the video guide if anyone wants it

Just finished Very Hard difficulty today (offline, because I heard the Title Update f*cks up your save or at least has the potential to do so). The hardest part for me was the damn lift with the critters. Took me a while to get the hang of it and I must have died 10 times. Then once I watch The Sephraim17's video on it, I do it first try LOL.

if "very hard" was "very easy" than it would be called "very easy". what a fuckin' retard. i love how people say the stupidest things - i have never played a game on the hardest difficulty and thought to myself "damn that was easy". Easy means u might die once or twice - hell i died way more than that on normal, but then again i wasn't playing the game ducking for cover every 2 seconds.

i find the above post very harsh, as gamers we all have a wide range of different games that we have played and had experiences with giving us a referefence point on how difficult a game is regardless of the developers difficulty level.

i found this game really easy on very hard, only rented it so went for the hardest from the off and it took me a few hours and i was done. Slightly dissapointed about the difficulty level but an awome game never the less.

The part that caught me out was with the bugs on the elevator, but once i stoped trying to fire at the them at the top near the gears, and down the bottom where they spawn (simple, i know) all done.

Now onto echoes.....

More like "To Easy" for the hardest difficulty in the game i expected enemies that would kill me in three bullets. But that wasn't the case at all in fact i only had problems with a few bosses/enemies. For the most part you don't even have to try, using the leash fixes anyone who is being a nuisance. But i gotta say the campaign was great,i haven't played online as i bought the game used and didn't get the code. So the single player campaign was well worth the $35 i spent on it. The Sniper rifle for this game was my favorite weapon with the drill being a very close second. I hated the cannonball launcher thing. It just doesn't have alot of good uses to me.

But in general the hardest difficulty was one of the easiest i have seen on a game....ever

I would agree that on the opposite of COD or Halo Legendary for exemple, this is game is fairly easy on very hard. I did retry the chapter 1 part of act 7 like most of you, what pissed me off the most was that i had to always reload my guns cause the damn checkpoint is just before the drop kit, wich is just annoying.

But since i do it as i feel(playing act in no particular orders) i always have tons of points for the last chacpters, so i could fill my shotty with burning rounds, tumpler(i didnt used it tought) and snipe.

Personally i could do the entire game with snipe and shotty and that would be enought, they are the most devastating weapons. The drill gun is fun , well many weapons are fun, but the most effectives are the shotty and snipe.

So far only act 6 and 2 chapters of act 5 left, but its more that im not a guy who play hours of solo campaign continually. When i do a game for the first time i always do 1 act (around 1h or so) then i stoped, i dunno, i have fun doing them but if i play too long i dont have the same fun. Exeption to this rules are game like oblivion that you play 30 min and you almost didn't do anything lol

But for games like Bulletstorm, i always did only 1 act per play, but now i accelerate a little bit cause i want to return the game thursday, since ebgames give 30$ credit for it in may and i can't go to the city exept that day. So i have to hurry up a bit but well, once solo is done on very hard, i could have play more on echoes but im not digging this that much, campaign part without stories... bof, they should have make them playable as 2 players. Anarchy is not top top either, dont like how you have to score pts to past a wawe.

As for general apreciation of this game, lets say the killing was fun, but i wish they didn't emphasis too much on it, like kinda forcing you to do everything. Me, i did 50% of the skillshot, but no way im loosing time trying to do everything... some are just way too complicated.

Story was simple and effective, but i dont know whats up with epic always having to put stupid dialogue in there game(i could past over it for GOW but Bulletstorm...) Worst is Sarrano, god damn he is annoying as hell. Gray pissed me off too at time, i was like "will you shut up sometimes" and Trishka was correct, at some part she tried too much but overall she wasnt too much annoying. Ishi was ok too, since he didn't talk too much.

Anyway overall its a decent game, beautifull graphic, fun gameplay, but just a short campaign and thats it. If it was not for the GOW3 BETA i would have probably just buyed it used at 25$. Lets say since i return it for 30$ its pretty much like i did pay 30$ only, so i guess its ok.

I started the game on Very Hard after the suggestion from the Achievement Guide that Very Hard wasn't all that hard.

With the exception that you get hurt easier, I didn't think Very Hard mode was all that difficult.

Well i have to disagree, Act 7 was brutal. I did the rest of the game on very hard but that room with the 4 bosses almost made me rage quit. Just so many explosions going on. I may go back and try again.

Been meaning to buy the game when it came down in price a bit but i got it on rental the other day, not so sure if i want to pay even £20 for it, good game but i'm not sure if its a keeper or not.

It's unbelievable how many people here said they completed this game with only a few deaths. I guess I just suck at FPS games. I beat CoD 2-MW2 on Veteran but I don't have the patience for this game. The second I step out of cover, I'm already dying. I'm on Act 3, almost out of ammo in all my weapons, and no skill points. I can kick people off balconies for 50 points each until I can afford one thing of machine gun bullets (forgot how many it comes with, but it's 350 skill points to buy it) from the drop point, but then I end up having to use all of those rounds just to wipe out one enemy. I gave up. I could turn the difficulty down and forget about achievements, but it's a pretty blah game anyway. I'll get back to it in a couple years when I'm bored.

Very Hard is easy

I started the game on very hard, which is unusual for me as most games I get I just play on the default difficulty, but the achievement guide said starting on very hard wasn't that bad.

The only thing that was annoying was getting killed so many times and not being able to get enough points to buy ammo, as ammo was the main thing that was needed, but the hardest part I can remember was the helicopter fight with "Godzilla", I got killed a lot on that but apart from this event the game was a breeze.

And today I just got my 1250 gamescore after finally getting to level 65.
