Amara is the least gear specific, and has the easier build up compared to flak or Zane. Zane isn’t too gun specific but he is com, grenade and shield specific. Zane and Flak share a more tactical role in the battlefield, but I’d say Flak is more braindead than Zane. Zane has a lot of maintenance. I compare the two because they enjoy high dps and high damage, low/medium firerate and magazine firearms. Amara makes good use of splash, non elemental or no, melee, elemental, and all her skills build up to insane mobbing quite easily.
And moze is pretty broken, in a good way, nowadays. Gb made her pretty much up to class with Amara. I think she’s the more POWERFUL character now, too? Idk.
Zane pretty much a dps tactician with some moderate maintenance. Only all rounder. Not like Kreig.
Moze is a splash/grenade character like Acton, but not an all rounder. She’s like Kreig plus Mechromancer.
Amara is the melee girl. She also can play like Brick, or like Maya, or like Kreig. Mostly Kreig. More so with fourth skill tree than ever. She also can play like Maya. But I never told you that.
Flak plays like Zer0. Except he doesn’t die every five seconds and enjoys automatic firearms. He isn’t a critical hit character in the same manner Zer0 is, but his playstyle is similar. His best comparison is Mordecai, since they have similar things on paper. Enjoys sniping and fast automatic weapons, good gun damage bonuses, lifesteal, etc.
All of these characters have great survivability skills and bonus dmg passive skills that are equal around the board. Wether that comes from bonus gun damage, bonus pellets, both, or a bonus element damage and whatever other damage, they do all have that, and they have Lifesteal, non situational health Regen, usually increased with action skill, accuracy bonuses, the yada yada. They all have the good stuff.
It’s just what kinda game you’re used to playing, really. Or what you like doing. Amara by far gets the most out of the inexperienced, due to her tree design. It’s very forgiving and gives bonuses you know how to stick to. Splash and DOT, which are the BNB of a Maliwan and Torgue weapon.
Im done rambling. I hope this helps anyone who looks at this thread. I played them all this time here and my experience is with Roland and Kreig previous, so my playstyle isn’t too rigid.
