Now that I’m above 100 guardian ranks and maxed out the hunter tree perks I’ve been playing with the builds more.
Basically this build relies on having a legendary mod Red Fang that has your pet taunt and keep all aggro on it. The focus of this build is to get as much gun damage as possible with a strong pet that is returning damage done to it. You must keep your shields healthy and stay a decent distance away from the aggro because with the Hunter guardian perk that has a fast skill cool down with full shields you can get gamma burst active 5 seconds after it ends. The challenge to this build is keeping your shields and pet healthy during gamma burst because once They go down and all the aggro is on you it becomes a much tougher fight. Once your shield gets hit your skill cool down suffers. I’ve soloed slaughter shaft on mayhem 3 with this build without perfect modifies but I alsohave an lot of help from a cut man smg with corrosive damage. Even without the cut man this build is viable when teamed and as long as your able to output enough damage to keep your pet healed you can solo anything.
Because this build is meant to not having you get hit and relying on the full shield skill cool down perk. Picking a shield with very fast regen is key. So even if you get some unexpected aggro your shield can get back to full fast.
