Get Eridian weapon early:
To get the Eridian weapon early on, have a Siren character. Return to Fyrestone
in the Arid Badlands. After killing the Mothrakk, a Eridian weapon will drop. You
must search everywhere to find it. Note: To kill the Mothrakk easily, when it is
low on health, shoot warning shots to lure it towards you. Kill it while it tries
to get close. The weapon should be Eridian Cannon (Berserker), Thunder Storm
(Soldier) or Ball Blaster or Wave Blaster (Siren).
Performing a Critical Hit on an enemy will inflict more damage and give you more
XP. Perform a critical hit on the following enemies be performing the

Human Shoot them in the head(sniper rifle works best).
Pups Shoot them while they roar at you.

Easy Money and Items:
To easily get money and items, in "New Haven", go to the save/transport post near
"Scooter" and save the game. There are two red chests and three silvers chests in
town. After looting all of them, save the game and then exit. Reload the game and
repeat the process. The following are the locations of the chests:
Red Chest #1 On the roof of the building right of the save post. Go to the side
with the yellow barrel, and jump few times.
Silver Chest #1 From the save post, turn left and go upstairs. Continue in the
same direction, cross the wood plank and then jump the railing to the other
building. Turn right around the corner.
Red Chest #2 Starting from Silver Chest #1's location, jump on the red tarp
hanging over a small platform. Turn around and you will see the chest.
Silver Chest #2 After completing the Claptrap Rescue this Chest will be in a
little shed across the courtyard from the Bounty Board.
Silver Chest #3 From the save post, go forward and upstairs where the dollar
sign and arrow are. Jump on top of the washing machine, then on top of the roof
with the antenna. The Silver Chest is located behind it.
The following are descriptions of the Elemental Effects:
When you use fire on an enemy they will take gradual damage until they die or it
goes out. Fire damages enemies more if they don't have a shield. Enemies will
become less accurate when being attacked with fire.
Shock damage deals an large amount of damage to an enemy's shield, but loses
effectiveness once they're down to their health meter.
Acid damage eats through armored opponents and can spread to multiple enemies if
they touch each other while panicking. However, some Acid type enemies are mostly
immune to it.
Sometimes when you shoot an enemy from an explosion type gun, the bullet will
explode and deal extra damage. This is useful when attacking groups of enemies.
If you find an Eridian weapon, try shooting an enemy. Extra effects may occur.
The 10101 Cannon is a good example of a Shock/Explosion combination element.
