When you’re playing a game like Borderlands 2,
you will often find yourself in situations where the world’s most powerful sniper rifle is not going to be your best option.
For these times, you will need a trusty shotgun and a bunch of luck to take down monsters
that are fast and capable of taking out your whole team with one swipe.
A mission that has been frustrating players for years is Dribbles:
the fourth boss in the original Borderlands where he spawns from the floor as droplets of water before growing into his full form.
Players have been trying to hunt him down for years but there is no way to kill him; if he takes your shots before they land, nothing happens.
The only real solution is to run through to the other side of the room and hide on a platform as he jumps around.
Then you have to wait for him to die of old age because no one has ever managed to land more than one shot before he appears, if they can even manage that.
As you can see, it’s not a very fun experience at all – and the last thing anyone wants is another boring, repetitive boss fight in Borderlands 2.
So Gearbox recently made the decision to actually kill him off and remove the mission entirely,
which means that things will be a whole lot easier when Borderlands 2 is released later this month.
The only downside is that this means that anyone who was still holding out hope of eventually killing Dribbles can finally accept that it’s never going to happen.
This includes Gearbox President Randy Pitchford, who revealed in an interview with Game Informer
that he has never been able to land a killing shot before Dribbles goes into his invulnerable stage.
It’s a shame,
but it seems that no one has ever found a way to get past the boss fight and actually kill the monster.
It must be pretty disappointing for those who spent ages trying to figure out a way to defeat him,
although Gearbox have made up for this by increasing his droplet phase time and adding an achievement that is awarded for killing him in this way.
So it’s not all bad news; at least it looks like he will finally make his last stand at some point while Borderlands 2 is going to be out soon
– and we can all look forward to enjoying the pseudo-sequel instead of being frustrated with grindy boss fights.
