Hello. This is my first post on the new gearbox forums. I used to post somewhat on the old forums but I stopped BL2 for a while and recently came back. I’m doing level 72 UVHM and OP runs with the “Twisted Pimp” build by @Derch. I love the pimpernel but I end up finding myself having more fun with SMGs. I was wondering if anyone can give me some critique on my build.
5/5 Kinetic Reflection
1/5 Mind’s Eye
5/5 Sweet Release
5/5 Chain Reaction
1/1 Cloud Kill
My main weapons are a Fire and Corrosive Sandhawk, a Slag Pimpernel, and a Twister
My items are Blockade, Legendary Cat, Magic Missile, and Blood of Ancients.
Now my main questions.
I love SMGs, but I am also a realist. It feels nice to burn through people with a SMG + Cat Mod but to me, it feels like the Cat Mod is more of a raid boss Mod. Is it just me, or am I better off using a Legendary Siren + Pimpernel when going through the game and switching to Legendary Cat + SMGs for raid bosses?
Are there any good SMGs other than the Sand Hawk? I’ve tried the Bitch and Florentine but I didn’t really like them and the Sand Hawk burns a lot of ammo. Any SMG that when used with the Legendary Cat com, can almost rival the Legendary Siren+Pimpernel efficiency in running through the game?
Some people have suggested the Bee but I don’t like it unless i’m raiding because I feel like it’s too fragile. Any opinions? I’m more thinking Blockade for running through game, BeeHawking + Grog Nozzle for boss raids.
I love the blockade but people tell me the antagonist is better. Do you think Blockade+Magic missile or Antagonist+Quasar is better for a combination of defense+slag
Does anyone have any good recommendations for a boss spec or can point me to where I can find some? I feel like having a mobbing spec and a boss spec are good since they have different focuses.
Opinions on scorn? I liked it in Twisted Pimp, but I feel like without the Legendary Siren com, the cooldown for Phaselock becomes too long so I opted for Quicken over Scorn and as a result, switched to the Magic Missile over the Quasar for my grenade.
Thanks for the tips!
