I hear ya, there...I just started playing this whole DLC pack since I got the GOTY edition for Christmas. This is by far the most boring, awful piece of DLC anyone could ever ask for, especially if you're playing it by yourself like I am since I don't have a gold account. I made it to the end of the end of Round 5, Wave five and the boss had one sliver of life left but managed to kill me first. If you die, you have to go back TEN levels to Round 4, Wave 1. I got so mad, I could have thrown the controller out the window. This was a fun concept, but when you have to play 2+ hours just to beat ONE round in this arena-style game? Pffft, no thanks...I'd prolly find this much more fun with multiple players.

On second playthrough, mobs in Hell-Burbia are about 52-54, so I recommend being higher than that to make it easier. I made it to round 3 @ level 53 without much problem but then got taken out quickly by the hyper-speed bad-ass wave.

if you want an easy way to complete these missions you should try to play in co-op
with someone who is a much lower level. Found out about it when I was playing with a friend.
Enjoy the kick ass dlc

This dlc all have annoying achievements, so don't come looking here for advice 'cause it takes skill. You need to survive 5 rounds on each arena, which is annoying, 'cause in both playthroughs, they are the same level as you, plus the bosses, and perks etc make this just a waste of time. A skilled player (Like myself) would be able to complete it in just over an hour. Others who have no strong weapons will find this just stupid. In the first area, the area opposite the stage provides a great camping area. On the 2nd, there is no excellent camping area, so you will just have to keep moving, and use the teleports to your advantage. And the third. As far as I know there are no spectacular camping spots...

This DLC is definitely by-far the worst DLC that has ever been released for a game. I mean, i started this crap, and finished the first arena, but anything after just seems like a waste of money. I mean you buy this DLC, and have to go through over a hundred waves, and maybe 1,000 enemies(just making a point here), and you dont gain a single XP. Its complete crap. To make matters worse it didnt even come with a level expansion. But for those who love earning gamerscore like myself, good luck.

agree on #5!
just host a slitscreen game with a ultralow level guestaccount and join with your maincharacter. The enemies will then be lvl 12 and you can rush through them... it doesnt matter if the guestaccount dies all the time

This one wasnt that bad actually. I was level 24 (facing other level 24s and up enemies) with poor weapons and I made it to round 2, That only took me about 45 minutes to do. Its time consuming but if you have powerful weapons then its a breeze.

Agreed, for the amount of time and skill it takes to complete each arena, achievement should be way more than 10. Just beat Angelic Ruins, did Hell-burbia a while ago, gonna try the gulley today and see if i can add this to my list.

If there's anyone still looking to get the cheevo's for Moxxi's Underdome I'd sure appreciate a little help in getting through these. I've done Hell-burbia and am working on Anjelic Ruins. Burbia wasn't bad just time consuming going solo. I'm a lvl 42 soldier (Roland). Add me and let's tackle this! GT ~ RichNasty1911

This thing sucks. I just did the first of the 3 'small' tournaments and I'm already sick of it. I swear it took me like 2 hrs (although I had to repeat 4 & 5 after dying to a royal lance guard, what are those guys invincible?)

Anyway I noticed that whenever there's shotgun, rocket launcher, etc. challenge round, your other guns can still be viable, so don't give up on them. Also, when you finish a boss round the tower Moxxi (sp?) is on spits out a random gun or 2.
