This build was created to fulfill the lack of an option to save your loadout and change it on the run and take advantage of the great skill that is “Some for the Road” without giving away all the raw damage of the Shield of Retribution tree and somewhat Demolition Woman Tree.
Basics of the Build:
- SWITCH your CLASS MOD and RELIC to make a 180° shift to your gameplay.
- Make an skill points distribution that can do it all no matter what relic or com you use, an “AiO build”.
We focus on 3 things when we look at our gear:
- Low Magazines
- Splash Damage
- High Damage
Therefore shotguns (MOSTLY), RPGs will be our main weapons.
These will be our main weapons in the case we are using the BLOODLETTER COM, flakker is exceptionally good for mobbing and can do some serious job while bossing.
Redline is my favorite weapon on BL3 so i try to use it as much as i can, if we are using the BLOODLETTER COM we’ll need the anointment " After exiting IRON BEAR, do not consume ammo for 5 seconds" and it can be use as our main bossing weapon.
Bangstick, Bologna Poney and Kielbasa can replace the two previous mentioned guns too.
While using the COMMANDER COM, the flakker can be use as an alternative mobbing weapon and the Redline our main bossing weapon, no matter what anointment does it has.
An excellent RPG, multipurposes AiO, can be use as a mobbing/bossing weapon while using the COMMANDER COM.
If you’re looking for an alternative LUMPs can be use for mobbing and QUICKIEs for bossing but these two RPGs are not very consistent on how well they proc our cooldown skills.
BLOODLETTER and COMMANDER COMs
To the point: commander mod give us the skill we need to change our gameplay “Some For The Road”.
Bloodletter grants us an incredible boost in our damage.
Relics wise, i highly recommend getting the SNOWDRIFT prefix is really useful if you’re planning on doing MTD runs SOLO, especially during WOTAN fight.
The subfix vary depending on which COM we want to use, for the BLOODLETTER COM, DEATHLESS is our best option, i think we know this is the best way to get all the gun damage bonuses from DESPERATE MEASURES.
For the COMMANDER COM i found that the SPLATTERGUN suffix is the best, why? because as i said our main weapons will be shotguns, RPG and pistols. Now i dont know if i found some weird interaction here but if you use a shotgun on STICKY MOD and shot at the enemies and then slide you get the bonuses from the splattergun relic and combined with the snowdrift prefix you can slide for a longer time.
- SPLASH DAMAGE
- SPLASH DAMAGE RADIUS
- SHOTGUN DAMAGE
- HEAVY WEAPON DMAGE
- ASC COOLDOWN
- WEAPON DAMAGE
- AREA OF EFFECT
- DOUBLE DOWNER (for either of both COMs)
- STOP GAP - RECHARGER ( while using the COMMANDER COM)
- CLONING MADDENING TRACKER
- SPRING EPICENTER
The anointment we’ll look for is " on grenade throw gain 25% damage on grenade throw"
Im going to try to be as concise as i can here and explain some of the choices i made.
Why 5/5 GLIZZLED + 4/5 EXPLOSIVE PUNCTUATION? There’s little to non adavantage on stacking those two skill! TRUE but this build is made for supporting two diffents COMs and both can do it all (bossing and mobbing), while Grizzled wiil help us to get our Iron Bear faster durring mob fighting, Eplosive puntutation will do the same while bossing (where theres fewer adds to kill).
2/3 on THIN RED LINE and 3/5 on VAMPYR:
These are the sweet spot for both “builds”, 2/3 on thin red line allows to maintein health gate while using the commander com and 3/# on vampyr will help us to keep our shield up while using the bloodletter com.
3/3 on BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN
this skill is not that great, but if you’re using the commander com that little percentage in shield delay/rate will fill your shield a little bit faster and get the benefits of TOPPED OFF.
