There’s a pretty amazing Scourge/Nukem build that doesn’t use barrier on ThiccFilA’s Youtube.
I’ve personally used a cutpurse victory rush/facepucher tediore build that facerolls everything just as fast as the banjo build with seein dead com. I use a victory rush than a deathless for him just because Salvation proccs 100% of the time for him so with a Tediore build he can actually run healthgating. I run the shield for it though, as it’s too good to give up. But you don’t have to aim for Tediore builds for the most part with homing/mirv. The shield doesn’t stay up 100% of the time with my build as I don’t run CCC or the other action skill upkeep skill. That’s okay with me though, as I have on ASE splash damage for my shock everblast for burst. The clone chucks a million p*ss grenades with 25% grenade throw with seein dead, and is equipped with the facepuncher to keep me topped off and constantly throwing Tediores without switching to the facepuncher myself. He’s personally the best at Tediore chucking IMO. Has reload speed skill, can have clone gain ammo for him, can run healthgating, use ASE annoints efficiently, and an impenetrable shield.
What I’d like to know, does the 100% Sntnl annoint cause self damage on tediore splash? Haven’t found a 100% sntnl everblast homing/mirv to test. I remember the terror cryo not causing self damage, but if the sntnl doesn’t kill me, I’d drop the shield for sntnl in a heartbeat and try running good-misfortune.
