Mine is the UPR. Guns, gats and grenades are my favorite. I like everyone about the same amount except Galilea. Great lore and concept, but her CC is just too much for me… can’t play her without feeling guilty.
Share some builds! Discuss lore! Who is the funniest?
I like to take the “Hidden Charger” legendary on Ghalt to combine with Barrier. It reduces shield recharge delay by a second when you reload, and it has max shield strength on the side as a bonus (used to be -shield recharge delay as a secondary effect before Winter Update). And I take Easy Target over the cooldown at level 9 since both skills have similar cooldown now. Here’s a build link: http://battlebornforum.com/pages/battleborn-helix-build-editor-ghalt/?rows=-1,1,-1,1,1,-1,-1,-1,1,0,
Oscar Mike can be built like 4 different ways so I won’t even bother with a build link, considering I have multiple.
I like to play Ernest defensively. Hope that atk speed on his power egg gets nerfed slightly and his dmg reduction buffed. Or just an atk speed nerf. Link: http://battlebornforum.com/pages/battleborn-helix-build-editor-ernest/?rows=1,-1,0,1,1,-1,-1,1,-1,-1,
At level 6 it’s a tough choice, but I have to compensate for lack of shield/pulse dmg at level 8. The slow is pretty useful for melee characters that try to invade, and plus, the concussive charge choices I took help keep them off my teammates. For gear, I bring attack speed/reload speed, max health (since dmg reduction is apparently only useful with 3333+ health), and health regen or cooldown time.
I have an experimental build for him, found here: http://battlebornforum.com/pages/battleborn-helix-build-editor-benedict/?rows=0,-1,-1,-1,0,-1,-1,1,-1,-1,
Yes, some of these options are terrible. But that’s kinda the point. Don’t take this seriously, I just came up with this a minute ago. Hawkeye is not my main skill in this unlike most Benny builds, instead it’s Liftoff and Divebomb. I take the Hidden Charger and the Comeback King (shield explodes for 140 dmg after a full charge) for gear, plus a shard gen I suppose. I use Liftoff, divebomb in, and blast rockets at their face from point blank range. My close-ness should allow the Comeback king to work, and the Hidden Charger will help reduce shield recharge delay and such, letting my shield get back up faster, which lets the Comeback King proc again… yeah. Then I use Liftoff to regenerate shields (if you want to take a shield recharge gear instead of a shard generator you won’t need that helix) and the cycle begins anew. Danger Close ensures every rocket hits, and activating Hawkeye resets my mag so I can spam rockets EVEN MORE. And Blastoff is there for a small damage boost, I won’t need the other one since I’m only using Hawkeye to reload.
Now I’m kinda excited to go home and try that out. I’ll fail miserably, no doubt. But there’s no point in not trying!
