Strategy help needed for epic mode missions (Queens)

Is there a secret to killing the very heavily armored critters in the Queen missions? I seem to be especially having trouble with the flying ones. Harpies in Black Garden and Shanks in Devil Archon can withstand a whole clip of primary ammo and I can't stock enough heavy or special. I am lvl 26 and getting slaughtered by these things. How are you handling this? Thanks in advance.

Means you need to use a weapon with a special elemental attribute like Void (purple), solar burn (orange/fire) or electricity (blue). I think you need to use void-based weapons for the harpies and shanks. The mission modifiers should give you a clue as to what element type weapon to bring to the fight.

Also - whatever your class sticky grenade is will one shot almost anything not a boss.  I use discipline armor on these missions for that reason.

They will have a glimmer (shield) around them. Like Gatsu said, use same color weapon as shield

You need to look at the mission modifiers. You'll want to use weapons that have those modifiers. As an example, the mission on Earth has an arc burn modifier. This means you'll take more damage from arc weapons, but your arc weapons will deal bonus damage. This makes a big difference, so make sure you pay attention.
