Use it to your advantage!
Blue Shell, Best Buds 4 Life, Livin’ Near the Edge, Kick Him While He’s Down, While He’s Up, Second Wind by Tediore. All these skills pretty much revolve around FFYL.
and when youre in FFYL and youre fite rate and reload speed is buffed up insanely, it becomes ways easier to maintain load and splode stacks, as well as up your one last thing frequency.
Using killbot, any mob that you can kill without the extra FFYL buffs keeps you alive and then when you come up against a badass, go crazy and run in while throwing your grenades if youd like, if you go down you just kill the badass faster.
and you have the luxury of extended FFYL time, which will up your survivability a lot.
