I'm trying to beat this mode with a friend and neither of us have the DLC weapons (which, judging from playthrough videos, make the mode look like a joke...). Since nothing carries over, we don't have our op launchers, best circuit sets and 20k scrap metal. We're pretty much stuck with the start weapons since all resources are consumed crafting that ammo etc. How do you beat this mode without those DLC weapons? The standard cutter does ridiculously low damage. The only thing I've found is to exploit the respawning resources you can find on the ground and using stasis on enemies but that doesn't get us far enough.
