Deep Howardian Geekery in Borderlands 1

So aside from all the mini-bosses, there are three "Plot Bosses" in Borderlands, not counting the Giant Space Flea From Nowhere at the end.

Last night I sent my Berserker to go fight the second of the plot bosses, which required traversing a narrow canyon with several underground tunnels until you reach a large but enclosed, semi-underground area at the end. To get to the boss, you have to climb up several ramps to where he sits in a turret and will blast away as you approach. His name? Krom.

As soon as I saw him, I knew.

Holy crap, it's Crom on his mountain in the underworld, ready to rain death and destruction down upon those who displease him.

And I'm the barbarian.


So what did I do? Obvious. I went into berserker mode, ran up the mountain, and punched the turret until it exploded. Duh.

Went into Second Wind three times in the process, but didn't die once. Because Brick is a badass.

I was quite pleased.

"Krom on his mountain in the underworld"......AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I can't believe I never thought of this. I wonder if it was intentional. With Gearbox it's hard to tell when they're winking at you. :)

Me, I always use a corrosive weapon to destroy Krom's turret. Usually what happens then is he gets flung off the mountain by the exploding turret and dies.

cheers,

It works so perfectly, I can't imagine it's an accident.

"My siren's name is Brick. And she's the prettiest siren of them all!"
Given the number of other pot shots taken by Gearbox in the series, it's guaranteed to be intentional. Brick's "punch them with my fists until they die" technique is such fun.
