I’ve been looking at Nisha’s skills and although it’s plain to the eyes that she excels with non-elemental guns, I didn’t really know what to focus on.
Today it clicked, I will use what I know and love with her: Jakobs shotguns
This build is designed to take advantage of the many different damage bonus available and getting even more damage by using showdown to get natural crits (instead of relying on Tombstone) and procing hot lead. The playstyle is somewhere between a frantic shotgun totter and a sniper (I know that sounds impossible…keep reading)
Videos are old, Dating from the time where the level cap was 50 or 60.
(First one is my own potato cam, second one is Imagine’s work, third one is Afro’s)
There is one point left, this is intentional: Put that point into Fistful of bullets if your shotgun has a mag size of 3 or less, and in Jurisdiction if it has 4 or more.
Striker: The sniper shotty. Jakobs, Tediore, Torgue or Scav grip. Rustler’s or Doc’s prefix. (Texas if you get a scav grip)
Stock doesn’t matter much, but Hyperion is the best for those who care.
If you can’t get your mitts on a Striker, a purple/glitched Longrider/scattergun or a Blue coach gun are great alternatives. Why blue instead of purple ? Mag size. A purple coach gun with a Jakobs grip will get a mag size of 4, which when coupled with FFOB will give you 7, meaning that your first shot will not be able to stack mag6 and Crack shot …or have to stick to 2 shots per reload. and using a Tediore grip to fix that lowers the damage of a purple coach gun below that of a blue one with a Jakobs grip. Ence, a Blue coach gun with Jakobs grip is the best choice.
Boomacorn If foes are getting too close, it’s time to bring out the big guns.
This thing can’t crit…but it doesn’t need to Make sure you aim slightly low so that your missed shots hit the ground and still affect your target with splash radius.
COM: (Loaded) Six-shooter (Blue, bonus to crack shot and Magnificent 6)
If you play this more from the hip, get a purple one or a Crapshooter instead. The gameplay is a bit different, but very efficient.
Shield: Anything you like, refer to the Nisha Top Gear for ideas
Oz kit: A precision strike is a great choice, especially if you are using a coach gun, as it can tighten the spread somewhat (and increase damage of course). Eddie is also still a great choice.
Grenades: I use a Vladof Cryo or a cryo transfusion depending on my mood.
Other guns: A Fridgia to swap to when you need extra oomph against stubborn foes is very useful.
A RL might be handy for FFYL (though I don’t remember ever needing it)
Some other gun you like for if you ever run out of ammo, I carry splitters.
Level 4: Order. No other skill will give you as much for one point right off the gates. Start putting points into Bona fide grit.
level 15: Get Fistful of bullets, it’s what makes this build work. You’re now ready to kick a lot of ass. Move to L&O
level 26: Your survivability is assured, time to stack up the hurt. Go back down Riflwoman.
Level 37: tombstone and unforgiven for the win. time to move to Fan the Hammer to get Mag6.
Level 50: Once you have Mag6, move back to L&O to get the rest
