Dear Psychos of Borderlands 2
i’m writing you in desprate need of advice.
I am one of those players who played monthes when BL2 was released. Back then i got lots of fun to the max with Gaige, Maya and Sal. Psycho came a bit later but i was already happy with what i had and didnt bother having a look at Krieg.
HOW EVER, time passed, a new console came (PS4) and withit the Handsome Collection engaged my BL2 fun time again! And finally i got to krieg.
Now… Playing krieg is fun, it’s diffrent and it needs some time to aquire some skill to actually play krieg (since he is just so diffrent).
I’m always the kind of guy who likes to have a look at google on builds / strategies / gear etc. As BL seems to have a solid fanbase, you quickly find your answer on “How to” for all characters. BUT not krieg! Why is that? I do not find solid (as in “many players agree” with the source) guides for krieg.
I am looking for a solid build for krieg. Preferably the “i’m so OP” build. Yes that’s right, i want to kill terra in let’s say less then 5 minutes again. But with krieg.
Now of course i’m not coming to you guys with just this. I’ve been trying diffrent builds and i have been reading a lot of forums and suggestions. How ever, none really works solid for me.
Regarding an Explosion (Explosive Fastball) build: Oh dear i just love it, really do! But i can’t really handle anything else the going psycho in pete’s bar. Pete’s Bar works just brilliant with bloodsploison all over! Awesome. I found my self giggeling while doing this (that’s somewhat unusual when i game).
But in reality when leaving Pete’s bar, world get cruel. Issues like: Mobs too far from each other, missing one grenade and get killed instantly, didn’t see that one guy behind me, that kills me now. Having to constantly use Grog to not die… Hell I’m sure i’m doing it wrong.
I would LOVE to keep running with an explosive build but at some point i give up to frustration.
Then on the Volcano Build: Fun! Took me a while to find out that spaming grenades is key to survive. Often when my quasar is used up it results in instant death. ALso my problem here is that really, i have to spam grenades and have the grog gun active, otherwise again, i die within seconds.
Now from reading just that you might think me key issue is my healthpool. But as a longterm BL2 player i got badass tokens that boost all my stats by ~70%. Running with Rough Rider gives me around 3’000’000 health. That should be more then enough shouldn’t it?
So here’s my final questions:
- is there a build that is huge damage coupled with good survivability?
- is there a build that allows me to easy do OP8 raids?
- what the hell am i doing wrong???
I saw the forum here is not that active anymore, but you guys are my last hope before i trash the krieg and start playing other games again.
PS: Yes, you could think i am one of those “i wanna pwn” guys.
PPS: Sorry, lots of grammar mistakes right there
PPPS: Not crying about krieg, i’m crying about my incompetence playing this toon right.
