6~16. Defeat Enemies In The Vault
Use Electricity On Guardian's Blue Shields
The Guardians inside the Vault mostly have 1 blue shield bar. This means you can defeat them easily with electricity damage.
Some Guardians Are Weak To Corrosive Damage
Some Guardians in the Vault will have two shields - yellow and blue. They'll be weak to corrosive with regards to the yellow shield so switch elements when facing these kinds of enemies.
Keep Distance From Anointed Enemies
Anointed enemies are very tanky and have powerful attacks. It's best to attack them from afar and deal damage from the distance, where you're relatively more safe.
