Since this game’s release, I have tried so many times to love Zer0. I love the idea of his character, big risk big reward. In theory, glass cannon characters always seem more interesting to me. However, every time I actually try and play him, I feel like I’m playing a glass character that they forgot to actually attach the cannon to. It feels like the game is infinitely harder when playing as him with little to no reward for doing so. Now I will admit, I am mainly a Maya player, so I’m used to a lot more healing and crowd control. But I’m not even referring to Zer0’s lack of survival skills here; the main point I’m trying to make is that I do not feel like I am killing enemies any faster with Zer0 than I could with Maya (in fact, I feel like clearing rooms is a hell of a lot slower).
Ultimately, I just wanted to see how other people feel on this subject and maybe hear some input from the long time Zer0 pros. Is there a specific way to play him that will make him really shine? Or is the “cannon” aspect of Zer0’s “glass cannon” ideology applicable only to raid bosses. I read a lot of posts saying things like “He is so rewarding at level 72,” I just have yet to actually see any evidence of this being true.
Disclaimer: Not trying to bash this character or anything, simply looking for some motivation and/or videos/testimonials to make me understand why the people that love him feel the way they do. Also, this post is obviously about Gun builds, not melee.
