1-20. Bring Incendiary Weapons
Most Cultists in this mission do not have armor and are vulnerable to Incendiary attacks. Best to bring Incendiary weapons and/or grenades to speed up your progress in this mission.
4. Brick will Support Your Battle
Following the cutscene, Brick will support you in battle with the Bandits. He can also revive you when you are down, so try to stick close when pushing forward.
7-9. Pizza Ingredients Location
Pizza ingredients can be found near the Jail cell area. Look for each items by following the waypoint.
Ham Dropped By Firebrand Enemy Found in Cell
Kill the Firebrand in the open cell to grab his "ham".
Onion Slices Found On Shelf
Climb through the ventilation from the Cell you found the Firebrand to drop into a storage room. The "onion slices" will be found on the shelf.
Use Generator to Open Door with Sauce
The final ingredient can be found behind a locked door. To open this door, interact with the generator found at the waypoint to find the "sauce" in a cardboard box.
13. Restock Before Heading Towards The Bridge
Before delivering the "pizza", make sure to restock on ammo and supplies. The checkpoint where Tina stays in is the only place where you can restock before the boss fight, so be sure to do so before you head east.
14. Fight Through the Bridge with Mordekai
During your fight on the bridge, Mordekai & Talon will support you with ranged fire support to whittle down the enemy numbers.
Warden - Boss Battle Tips
Warden Has Armor
Bring Corrosive Weapons to quickly drain the Warden's Armor. The Warden also becomes invulnerable for a short while every time it loses 1/3 of its armor.
Warden Has Multiple Forms
Has armor and fights using twin machineguns and missile launchers to attack from a distance.
Transforms into this after losing all of its armor. Attacks by aggressively charging at the player. Does a leap attack to close the distance.
|Super Raging Warden|
Heals up and transforms into this when near-death. More aggressive and attacks other enemies. Relentless and occasionally attacks with a barrage of missiles.
Warden Transforms to More Powerful Form If Not Finished Off
The Warden will transform into his more powerful form (up to 5 stages) if not killed off when his HP is low. When his HP is near depletion, use a high DPS burst damage weapon to finish him off before he replenishes his health.
Wait For The Warden To Reload
The first form of the Warden attacks by gunning the player down with continuous fire. As you'll likely be outgunned in a one on one fight, try to wait for the Warden to run out of ammo, and when he reloads, attack with shotguns or assault rifles. Rinse and repeat.
Fire While Retreating
The simplest strategy in beating the Raging Warden and Super Raging Warden is to fire at him while moving backwards. Other enemies that spawn during the fight are all melee fighters, so they'll likely chase after you and line up the same way as the Raging Warden.
