Speaking of which, tBC, didn't the map reset? So how can you use keys to improve your odds against Flynt? Hopefully there's a loophole (possibly via multiplayer).
The map resets and you lose all your main campaign fast travel destinations. BUT, if you go back to first play mode if now on TVHM or to TVHM from UVHM then you have all your waypoints back on the fast travel map. Do your business and then switch back to the mode you were playing, you don't lose any gear. You always keep the gear you have when you switch modes, even if you are starting the campaign afresh.

Golden Keys are easy to exploit. It's just a variable in a settings file - you can give yourself 1000 keys if you want with about ten seconds and Wordpad. Ive never been tempted (and i have about 100 keys anyway - i used to religiously follow the SHiFT codes they posted online) - ive never bothered to use them because the chest doesn't have a good chance to drop Legendaries.
I'm using a different technique. I have about 20 keys and quit gathering them after I learned the exploit. I don't use it very often, last time I used a golden key was when I started my ill fated Commando on UVHM.
It seems, from reading the BL2 forums, that UVHM was built with the assumption that anyone who was attempting it had already completely TVHM + All four DLCs + was farming Seraphs, and, therefore, had/has an entire kit of Pearlescent and Seraph Gear. So, the game assumes you have mega-awesome-raidboss-gear to START UVHM... and if you dont, it's brutally unfair.
I never completed all of the DLCs before UVHM launched, and ive never been interested in the "Raid Boss" encounters. Just have to plod on, i guess. Im going back and doing the DLCs on TVHM to gain a few levels before jumping back into UVHM.
Hmmm, this sort of sucks. Although I've played all the DLCs, I've never farmed Seraphs or raid bosses, that takes team play and I've never bothered. Maybe I'll have to get more involved. King Mong dropped two legendaries last time I fought him, think I'll go back and pay him a friendly little visit.
