[PLEASE NOTE : YOU WILL NEED THE UNOFFICIAL COMMUNITY PATCH 4.0 (or higher). Here is everything about how to install it.]
This is probably the most fun I’ve ever had in my entire Borderlands experience. Even more fun than my countless hours on Krieg.
This build focuses on the use of my favourite weapon of all time : Kaneda’s Laser !
This build will also give you survivability through the use of the Big Boom Blaster as well as Maya’s innate ability to be tanky as hell, nice crowd control thanks to Phaselock and the Quasar, and finally insane AoE Damage while having the ability to headshot enemies across the map (hence the name of the Build).

SKILL BUILD :
Here is the spec that I’m going to use for this build, you can change it based on what you like : http://bl2skills.com/patch/siren.html#415001400055155100310545510501
GENERAL EQUIPEMENT :
PRIMARY WEAPON : Kaneda’s Laser
… yes, we are only rocking this weapon for this build. No Moxxi, no Slag gun, no sidearm.
This really adds fun to the build, forcing you to be careful on how you use the weapon.
But if you really don’t want to struggle with ammo, then the Bekah is a good sidearm for this build since it benefits from most of the skills we have while also having very good ammo consomption.
Parts : Tediore Grip, Torgue Exhaust, Torgue Sight, “Large” Prefix (+ Damage).
For those who don’t know about this weapon, it’s a quite unique Rocket Launcher :
First off, it fires a projectile, which means it benefits from both Chain Reaction and Reaper and the best feature : IT CAN SCORE CRITICAL HITS !
The reload also does an excellent amount of Damage, especially with Maya’s Foresight skill at 10/5.
SHIELD : Big Boom Blaster
The best option for this build imo. This Shield will supply you in Grenades and Rockets while restoring your Shield. You could technically run a Logan’s Gun in conjonction with The Sham Shield, but I find this way to play the game quite boring in my humble opinion.
GRENADE MOD : Quasar
Crowd control, Shield stripping and healing through Life Tap really doesn’t hurt at all. The best thing with this Grenade Mod is to combine it with Scorn and Slag, group up and weaken a bunch of enemies, and then reload Kaneda’s Laser into the bunch.
RELIC : Bone of the Ancients
Thanks to the mod I mentioned, we now have Explosive Bones now (which, let’s be honest, should’ve been in the base game). On Maya you can’t really go wrong with extra Damage and Cooldown Rate. There’s literally no better option here.
CLASS MOD : Legendary Siren
Probably the best option here. As I said earlier, you really can’t go wrong with extra Damage and Cooldown Rate. Except here you also boost your Magazine Size (which is excellent with Tediore weapons) and Shield proficiency through Ward.
GAMEPLAY TIPS :
Here is the thing : Kaneda’s Laser is a Tediore Rocket Launcher. This means reloads with this weapon do not consume any ammunition !
So the basic strategy is to Phaselock an enemy, headshot it and then reload into the enemies you just weakened and grouped up (thanks to Phaselock + Quasar) and repeat the operation ! This effectively doubles the amount of Rockets you have since Tediore reloads are free in this case.
While you’re doing this you have the Big Boom Blaster watching your back with with extra Rockets, Shields and Grenades ; and you also have all of Maya’s insane crowd control potential and additionnal Damage through elements (Helios, Cloud Kill, Ruin) as well as Scorn to Slag a bunch of enemies and the awesome combination of Life Tap and Inertia plus the Shield Boosters genereated by the Big Boom Blaster to keep you alive.
(more coming soon)
I hope you’ll have loads of fun with this build too, feel free to give me tips to improve this build or simply some feedback. I hope to see you next time for another build !
(by the way, I’m really sorry for you console players …)
