Flare + Iron Fist = Billion Damage Easily Level 72 Moze Build

Heya Buddies, Revenge of the Cartels (2) Event just came out and just like many others I Immediately farmed the OPQ System Legendary as soon as I could but I was interrupted when I saw the new iron bear fist anointment drop on a random weapon and noticed it said 300%. Remembering that it just got buffed I decided to try it out with my level 72 Moze Build and boom easily 1 billion damage. To achieve this damage I Equipped a Flare Class Mod to allow us to optimize iron bear damage as much as possible.

So let me take a step back and first explain which Iron fist we are actually using. When researching Iron Bear’s Fist Damage on the community forums I read that the Shockhammer variant did the most DPS so of course I went and used the Wild Swing variant… so despite shockhammer being proven to deal the most amount of DPS Wild Swing has a few factors that allow it to deal more damage overall since it has elemental novas that proc on hit; Because of this I knew I had to abuse Moze’s broken Splash damage Mayhem scaling from Fire in the Skag Den and by using secondary stats to boost our damage even further.

How Much Damage? After obtaining a Flare Class Mod w/ Splash damage secondary stats and a Deathless w/ Splash damage secondary stats I was able to deal around 250 Million damage per fist hit. This wasn’t nearly enough for me I knew we could go even further beyond. My next task was too find gear that would allow us to deal more damage so I immediately went towards the It’s Piss grenade but once again it wasn’t enough damage for me. Then I remembered that the Zheitsev’s Eruption existed and that was the final piece missing from the puzzle. I abused the Debuff Orbs spawned on overheat by weapon swapping and resetting the reload animation by enter iron bear to allow for maximum Debuff Orbs. What I mean by resetting the Reload animation is when you see the orbs being sent out from the gun you can enter iron Bear and the gun will spawn another set of orbs. After using this debuff w/ Its Piss I was able to achieve around 500 Million Damage per fist hit so by swinging both arms at the same time I was able to easily deal 1 Billion damage on a consistent basis. Sometimes the Elemental Nova that spawns wouldn’t proc or would be element that the enemy was resistance to thus causing small chances for the true damage to not shine thru but this was rarely a problem as I am able to one shot most enemies I come across now.

Its a ton of fun and I would love for you guys to try it as well. Alrighty that’s all I have for today, Have a great day everyone :slight_smile:
