Removed because after 5 years they decided to increase the lvl cap


Looks good. I’ll give this a shot.

I would spec one point into Grit for the Ranger COM boost.

Would you go slippery,nasty or accuracy prefix on the ogre

I like Slippery for the bullet speed.

Slippery…FR and Bullet Speed…Dahl stock on the Ogre if possible

Also…Also: What shields do you want to use with this as you are ignoring Quick Charge which is appropriate with a Bee…probably not a good idea with something like a Blockade or Antagonist.

Forebearance can be great in certain arenas/boss fights…but usually the Commando can survive most DoT attacks pretty easily without it. Especially with a shield like the Blockade.

Sorry Pie, Im kinda late on the reply but Im with the others. Slippery is the best for Axton!

OK I have the slippery one myself. With a torgue grip and stock. For the shield I usually run a blockade.I may try and move a few points but the build was working good on 3-player op8

Try this with a Blockade…see if you notice a difference:


Only reason for a point in Ranger is if you have a Legendary Ranger Com or those wonderful Blue Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Evil Ranger coms.

This would let you switch from pretty much any of these coms but my favorite is the Legendary Soldier
Legendary Soldier
Legendary Ranger
Legendary Engineer
Blue Chaotic Neutral Ranger
Blue Chaotic Evil Ranger

If you still like Forebearance…try this:


I just don’t spec Mag Lock except for VERY specific fights as I want my turrets on the ground drawing aggro…blocking…channeling…and even a little protection from Phalanx.

Thanks for the advice
Personally I feel ranger is a waste unless it’s 10/5 and even then it’s only so-so. Quick charge is a good skill I might try this
Same build just switching Forebearance with quick charge

Try a Chaotic Neutral Ranger
Explosive Damage Relic
Slippery Ogre

Let the fun begin!

For even more fun…and a GREAT standoff, longer engagement range build…

Add a Bee

I’ll have to go farm some new TT dlc coms. I guess I’ll look for a impact and grit boosting one,

Yep…that will work VERY nicely if you don’t like Ranger

And will give you at the very least…a 6/5 Grit which is excellent

I’ll have to move a point into grit but that’s no problem. I’m thinking of getting a +6 grit and +5 impact. Farming for good coms doesn’t take long so I can be picky about what I use.

The problem with giving up the Legendary Soldier is you are not only losing 5 free skill points…but also the boosts to Gun Damage, FR and Cooldown

All in all…it’s just too good of a com to pass up in most circumstances.

But I GUARANTEE you will like a Chaotic Neutral Com…FUN!!


I find it hard to give up the extra Reload speed from ready and extra turret time from sentry also the swap speed from expertise sometimes bothers me depending on what guns I’m running any time I swap out the leg. Soldier. I can live with losing the other buffs but those hurt me a lot.

Finished the guide.

I don’t think the phalanx shield or mag lock are that useful, could I put those two into something like preparation and grenadier or able?
