how the fuck do kill the nomads with shields? I've died like 100 times just fighting 2 of these pieces of fucking shit!
Corrosive weapons and throwing grenades that land just behind them. If you have a turret you can throw that down and flank him and shoot him in the back while they are concentrating on the turret. But yeah, Corrosive weapons are the best on any character that has a metal shield or is completely metal.
If you have a fire weapon you can aim at his feet because they are usually exposed. It's slow but it works. Also if you have a grenade launcher aim at the feet with that as well.
I actually keep a weak corrosive grenade mod for those types of characters... eats 'em up.
well apparently it was a trick question. I died so many damn times (during the 4 assassian mission) on the last one (wit the shotgun) that they stopped spawning baddies with him. So he ended up being real easy.
I don't know. I was level 12 doing a level 8 mission and got fucking destroyed by two nomads with shields. Then I did the mission for Zed in finding his Euranium gun from the doc, and I destroyed him (he was a nomad with a shield). It's based on the enviroment; I jump around a lot so in tight spaces I die quickly.
(Not a main story quest btw, so not really spoiling anything relevant)
Spoiler for Quest:
After a lot of running around and for me, fighting enemies that are equal or up to 3 levels higher than me, I finally completed the quest and got the 'Amplified Bane'. It's got good stats, especially for an SMG. It's a talking gun that makes the annoying noises. That's not the bad part, though. You can't go anywhere when you have it out; you move SO FUCKING SLOW. So yeah, the quest isn't worth it, imo. If you could move around with it out, then yeah, but you can't. You move the same speed you do when you're in Fight For Your Life mode. It's TURRIBLE. 2
