"Back Alley" Mission-Why So Tough?

Yes, all my gear is upgraded (so is Corso's). As I said, this is the only mission I've found impossible to do (or even that hard, actually). My Gunslinger is a terrific Class, and very powerful, and I'm enjoying playing this character a lot.

I started wondering if the problem is that I drew 2 Blood Medics as the "strong" final bosses on this mission. Does every player get this combo, or is it random for each player? In other words, does this mission give you 2 "strong" bosses that are randomly chosen Blood gang members, or do they always give you 2 Blood Medics? My problem seems to be that these Medics are healing themselves and each other at such a rate that I can't possibly bring their health down to zero. I just don't have enough interupts to get the job done.

I'm going to keep this mission and return to it every so often until I finally kill them. They're both at level 20, and I'm at 24 right now. I think that even if I was the worst MMO player in the world (which I may be), I should definitely be able to take them by level 30. Otherwise, there's something very wrong.

EDIT: I also play STO and there used to be a similar issue in one of their missions. In that one, you had to fight Romulans in a barfight. Most of the time, it was a standard fight. Occasionally, there would be a spawn of extra medics who went on a healing frenzy, making the mission impossible to complete, even for a level 50.

It took me 4 attempts to do this one. It is tough. The first time I didn't know what to expect and got mower down. The second time I didn't adjust my strategy and got mowed down.

Then I moved to another area and took a defensive position. Things were going great until I aggro'd a passing strong robot. I dropped. 4th time was a charm, I didn't even lose Corso.

I positioned myself behind the turret, in a tight corner. As the weak enemies started pouring in I just picked them off with two gun shots each. When the strong enemies came, I put Corso on the one the turret was shooting and went all out on it. Once the first one drops, the second one is easy. Just try to interrupt as much as you possibly can.

Or just ask for some help. Somebody will give you a hand. My sympathies. It is tough.

Had the same problem with this quest. Made it to the 2 strong medics at the end and just couldn't out dps them, even posted up next to the turret. And I was over-leveled for the quest too. I remember having trouble with my Sentinel with this quest back in the day too so maybe it's just a weirdly hard quest if you don't have you later-level interupts trained.
