Ever wanted to see how fast you could take a full juicy load and spray it on a Scav’s face? I thought so.
This build is centered around SMGs and the Femme Fatale class mod to get insane fire rate.
While this build isn’t heavy on defense, if you can effectively use Bloodrush and the Aspis you shouldn’t have very much trouble staying alive.
This is what the point spread is currently. There’s a couple places where you can move around points as you wish.
***Torrent:*** This is the bread winner. Natural high fire rate and solid damage makes this one a no brainer. Take any flavor you like, I stick with fire or shock.
***Hellfire:*** Great second choice. Even though its locked in fire it doesn’t even matter, you’ll still tear through shields.
***IVF:*** Alternative method for raiding, the damage from the reload easily takes out any phase of the Sentinel
***Fatale:*** Essentially the Bitch from BL2 but locked in cryo, the high accuracy makes for easy crits.
***Fridgia:*** Wanna freeze people? Go for it, I won’t stop you.
***Miss Moxxi’s Vibra-Pulse:*** No, this isn’t an SMG, but there isn’t currently an SMG that restores health. Use this in a time where you find yourself running low.
***Adaptive Shield:*** Currently, I’ve had zero luck getting shields to drop for me. This is the only solid shield I’ve found. Best of all, these things are in the vendor consistently. Its really up to you what to use here.
***Storm Front:*** Best at building stacks and taking down shield.
***Quasar:*** The king of crown control. Pair this with Blood Rush and you have yourself a deadly combo.
***Femme Fatale Com:*** What this build was centered around. The boost in Mag Size and SMG Damage compliments the fire rate and reload speed buffs you get from the skills.
***Celestial Gladiator:*** If you find yourself going down a lot use this. There’s a override on the shield recharge delay the moment you bring out your aspis, plus the skills boost are great.
***Strafing Run Oz Kit:*** More hot and nasty fire rate and reload speed? You better believe it.
***Precision Strike Oz Kit:*** Great for raiding, decent enough alternate for mobbing.
***Bomber Oz Kit:*** Best used in combo with the IVF (grenade damage boosts the explosion of the reload) and a Storm Front to easily maintain stacks.
***System Purge Oz Kit:*** Also an excellent choice for mobbing, especially in an atmosphere.
5/5 Ephodos: Gun Damage is always good, extra movement speed never hurts either.
3/5 Vanguard: You can do whatever you want between this and Hold the Line. I find the health regen on absorption to be quite useful.
2/5 Hold the Line: Again, do whatever you want here. I like a little of both.
1/1 Prisatic Aegism: Adds the ability to absorb elements including your own, you’re dumb not to take it if you came down this far.
1/1 Clear!: This is what we come down Phalanx for. Instant reviving of teammates is a no brainer for co op.
5/5 Gun Kata: Not an amazing skill but its nice, this isn’t what we came here for anyway.
5/5 Mercurial: Movement speed only adds to your crowd control. Also is one of the 3 skills boost by the com.
5/5 Omega-Senshu: 35% multiplicative passive damage bonus on enemies less the 50% health, damn straight.
1/1 Rend: You’re not taking this for the skill itself, it’s what it provides for Tear and Blood Rush.
5/5 Tear: More multiplicative bonuses, this time for only gun damage. Use Blood Rush and the aspis to close in on enemies and watch enemies go down quickly.
1/1 Blood Rush: Use this to close the gap and make him bleed. The knock back sets it up for you to spray the money shot all on his face.
4/4 Storm Weaving: Excellent fire rate boost if you change weapons enough.
1/1 Maelstrom: What makes all the stack building happen.
5/5 Gathering Tempest: Great passive bonuses to mag size and reload speed, even better that this gets boosted by the com.
1/5 Conduit: Regens your shield while you have electrocute going, the little bit of survivability helps.
1/5 Unrelenting: The boost here gets insane once you’re above 100 stacks. This is the third skill to get boosted by the com, so only one point is enough. The second point could even go in Elemental Barrage or Smite if you so please.
1/5 Elemental Barrage: Essentially this is free DPS. The ability to not consume ammo is always a plus.
PS - If anyone can correctly guess where the name came from, you win a high five.
