I’m a casual player who complained during early UVHM but is now having some success. Odds are good but not 100% that I’ll try the Peak at some point. I’m just looking to have fun. :slight_smile:

Edit: The posted build was old. My current build is below. Whoops!

Can you list also the gear you are using?

The build is a solid Double Up-Nuke build. If I would change anything, I will just maxed out onslaught and put only 4 points in Grenadier.

So i’m guessing Fastballs & Harolds are a big part of your build?

What class mods and relics do you have?

Never a fan of a Turret with longbow but not Maglock, but if you’ve got a Slagga or Magic Missles that’s moot. Your Axton is strong on his own, but there are enough points in the Turret in this build that optimizing its survival seems worthwhile.

But if you’re chucking the Turret just for the Nuke blowback & aggro you can divert any points to its DPS output to Axton’s personal buffs if you want like this http://bl2skills.com/commando.html#05055055015305515010105050050000

Nothing i would change build wise :+1:
I don’t like nuke, but that’s just my opinion

Not bad but with only a single turret I’m guessing you’re using A.O.E. grenades and weapons like RL to kill mobs before they destroy your lone turret. Depending on your gear choices it looks like it could certainly take you thru at least the first few stages of the Peak. Good luck and keep having fun! :smiley:

Sorry for any confusion.

@isthiswill : I use the turret for slagging and aggro. It survives remarkably well.

@piemanlee : Thanks for the confirmation. :slight_smile:

@carlton_slayer: Yeah, I’d want to get to OP2 or OP3. After that I can recalibrate. As for having fun - yes! There are rare times when I want to bite my mouse in half, but when I recognize that I’m in that state, I quit the game and go do something else for a while. I like to min-max my life happiness and tranquility, heh.

Okay, so it is a solid build. However, expertise is somewhat wasted, and I recommened taking 4 points from expertise and putting em somewhere else, like into Able. I have 4 points in Metal Storm, and 1 in Expertise, as it will get boosted by the L. Soldier. I like to have 4 points in Onslought, and 5 in able. Grenadier might be somewhat wasted, but still, worth grabbing. Overall, not bad!
