It’s finally time to confront the Sheriff, who says to meet her on Main Street. This is a relatively simple mission that can be a little complicated, due to the two optional objectives, should you want to complete them. When you arrive at the destination, those two optional objectives will appear, which are to kill the Sheriff with a pistol and to not shoot Deputy Winger.

The Sheriff will likely stick to the rooftop, making her a little difficult to hit from the ground. Likewise, she will spawn a few Marshalls and Deputy Winger will be walking around. While they’re not that tough of enemies, the fact that you need to worry about more than one enemy in this battle can be troublesome. If you’re going after the deputy optional objective, then you need to be careful about using weapons or action skills that could hit him.

The Deputy starts out as neutral (left). Try and coax the Sheriff to come down from her rooftop (right) to make it easier on yourself.

This means that someone like Axton or Gaige, who have action skills that indiscriminately attack enemies, might not be good to use here. The other optional objective about killing the Sheriff with a pistol is easier than it sounds, as you are free to use whatever you want to whittle her health down before having to switch to a pistol for the killing blow. As soon as you kill the Sheriff, you can go and turn in the mission.
