This is going to take a bit of time. Prepare for a few hours. You can make it easy for you, by hosting a game with a low-level character (Lv 10 for example) and join with your main account.

You have to fight for 20 Rounds with 5 rounds each. Each 5 rounds comes a new modificator, which can make it a bit challenging depending on the level of the main character.

I did this with a level 37 main character and it was actually easy. Beware if both of your accounts fail to end the round, you will have to do an additional round, as you start from the round before. (Eg. you are on Round 19 and die, then you start at 18).

I would recommend that you do this when you are at least level 50, as even low-level characters can cause trouble even if you are above 30 with all the mods. But it is not impossible though, you just need to be careful.

I played with Brick and used the rocket launcher constantly and on two occasions i hurt myself with no enemys around. Since i played alone i had to do few rounds more which took me more time.

The waves of each rounds consist of (Enemys are random)
Starter Wave: Skags/Bandits/Psychos
Gun-Wave: Bandits/Psychos
Horde-Wave: Only Psychos (Badass included)
Badass-Wave: Vault-Guardians/Bandits/Skags/Psychos
Boss-Wave: Any Boss

Remember that the further you go in rounds the more skilled enemies will appear, like alpha skags, Badass variants of each enemy, guardians and so on.

I will not talk as much about strategy as the other guides because my method is straight forward and utilizes a glitch.

Prep: There is preparation for this glitch to be done consistently. I suggest playing on playthrough 1 (so enemy levels cap at mid 30's) and farming for a strong enough combat rifle that you could 1 shot all level 30 enemies.

How to Skip Rounds: This glitch makes it possible to skip half the levels in a single match.
You first have to progress to the 5th or Boss wave of any round, You then have to camp the stage where the boss spawns so you can kill it soon as you can. Using a combat rifle will provide consistency if you pre-fire the boss. If you killed the boss quickly enough, the curtains should shut with the lesser enemies still alive. DO NOT kill these lesser enemies yet! Instead, wait for a timer to start counting down from ten. Around 5 or 6 seconds you should kill them so it 'ends' the round. When the countdown reaches 0 the game should bring up your stats just as normal. Hit cn_A so that the menu is closed. Soon after you should see another 10 second countdown start. It should bring up the same exact stat menu as before. The game may say you haven't skipped a round right away, however, if you seen two 10 second timers, the game will eventually readjust itself into skipping a round.

If the way I explained it was confusing. I've provided a video of me doing the glitch below:

1. This glitch can be performed every boss wave. The only exception is on sledge it doesn't seem to work. Even on Hanz and Franz. Long as you kill Hanz on the left, but leave Franz alive till the ten second countdown.

2. This can be done in either multiplayer or solo.

3. It works in both versions of the game.

4. This works on ANY map not just The Gully.

5. The enemies scale to the host so you can have lower level weapons do enough damage to insta kill the bosses.

If you have anything else to add leave a comment! If you leave a thumbs down comment why so I can help you :)
