A friend and I played through all three areas last night, My new character being the low end host while he used his regular one.

We beat all three areas and got the "prove yourself" achievement but didn't get any of the larger challenges one , nor the same character through all three one.

What did we do wrong here?

Hey,

In the area where the arenas are (that being the room you first enter when you arrive at Mad Moxxis Underdome), there should be an open room which is red in colour with 3 more waypoints with stairs leading up to them. They each have a different name.That is where you'll find the "Larger Challenges". :)

You'll need to do 20 Rounds consisting of 5 Waves per Round, so it's time consuming to say the least.

In addition to what Tears said, this room containing the larger challenges can only be accessed once you've beaten the first three "Prove Yourself" missions. And they are a time-consuming bitch, let me tell you. The room containing the larger challenges should be to the rear of the bulletin board where you took the "Prove Yourself" bounty, rear and to the left (if I remember correctly).

No worries... Prepare yourself for a long, grueling, grinding road. It's awully painful, if I do say so myself.

Set aside at least 2 & 1/2 hours for each of the larger challenges, you can't save mid-challenge. If you can manage 6 min rounds, it will take 120 mins. It's more like 8 min average for 160 mins.

This is also extremely boring.

Also 1 last note, Vampire + Naked = NOT Good. With these active you have no shields and you slowly lose life until you kill an enemy. I almost lost on Round 19 because they gave me these two and Super Speed for the enemies, I just could not shoot this one last guy just running around the stage.

We completed all three and as stated, they were boring as hell and took forever. Why anyone would find this an enjoyable DLC is beyond me LOL. Thanks for all the advice as it was dead on.

Use modded weapons and shields. Rounds will average around a minute.
