Borderlands gear in Battleborn

One of my favorite pastimes in the Borderlands series was coming up with OP combinations of gear and skill points. Up until recently I had spent most of my Battleborn time on learning all the characters helix’s and basic counters, running only generic gear load-outs and things commonly recommended.

Now I’ve really started combing through this pile of legendries I’ve never touched, searching for things reminiscent of Pandora. I started basing load-outs and playstyles off of them and its really been a lot of fun. Some are somewhat difficult to use in close matches but they all feel Amazing when done right.

What Borderlands gear do you run?

Flame of the Fire-Hawk - (Actual stats make for a shield strength of 20)
Constant exploding and recharging shield. run on phoebe with a Kleese / LLC legendary. Extremely fun to use.

Rough Rider - ( Actual stats make for shield strength of 1.)
Okay so the real rough rider shield has no shield but hear me out. Using the Warblade to take away a shield gives the user surprising survivability coupled with attack speed just like the rough rider taking a shield away permanently can increase attack speed and survivability on Sal. It’s pretty funny always being purple. Run this on Eldrid.

Shredifier - High attack speed. Like super duper high. Oscar mike running this inside of Ernests egg sounds like a motorcycle.

I’m sure it was an accident, but you can’t equip to gears of the same type. (In the case where you put two shield recharge delays on the same loadout).

Also, VoZF or SEoA would a be bit better than Orbital Tracking Spike. Same bonus, but easier and a safer to proc.

I’m not sure which math you used for your Rough Rider loadout, but unless you’re Eldrid, you’d have a shield of 300.

Other than that, I’m actually VERY interested in trying out some of your ideas and seeing builds other people come up with.

Fixed Thanks!
As for the Tracking spike, I want to have to stand still to proc. it, that’s what makes it tricky. Also with the rolls I have the tracking spike has higher overall attack speed.

Yes! sorry I should add that in. I run the rough rider on thorn. Its amazing how far some healing goes when you are constantly shielded haha

Here is the range of the FotFH and a short clip of it in action.
