I have been gradually working my way through all the Battleborn and Ghalt marks my 24th character that I had sort of avoided partly because I’ve tried doing characters in the order they get unlocked and to spread out the melee characters etc. But a lot of people I played with seemed to really dislike him, which made me dread picking him up (like that filthy El Dragon character).
I mained the Gunzerker in Borderlands 2, and after playing Ghalt for a bit I can say he has what the Gunzerker was (not just the fact he’s duel wielding) without the brokenness with how you could stack skills in BL2. Depending on how you play him, Ghalt can do A LOT of damage, and his Scraptrap/Hook combination make soloing missions like The Renegade a breeze even on advanced solo.
As for PvP, it varies…Maps like Echelon have good locations for setting up traps but up against a lot of range and CC it can be a nightmare playing as him.
Whoever worked on him did a great job! He’s definitely on my list of characters I will come back to and play!
