Well, I just started playing Borderlands a few weeks ago, and at first I thought it was dumb, but now it’s safe to say I’m addicted. Anyway, I love being a sniper, and I asked the friend who got me interested in Borderlands if you could play as a sniper, and he said I’d like to play as Mordecai. Which I did and do. But now I’ve found this nifty little Specter COM for Lilith, and I’ve been looking around for a good sniper build with her. I found an incomplete one on YouTube, and I’ve changed some things around a bit. I am looking for ways to make this the best all-around sniper build I can. Note: Each Skill Tree is all caps, then there’s the number of skill points used in the tree, and lastly the number of skill points used altogether.
ACTION SKILL - 1 - 1
Phasewalk - 1
CONTROLLER - 25 - 26
Diva - 5
Inner Glow - 5
Hard to Get - 5
Girl Power - 5
Mind Games - 5
ELEMENTAL - 18 - 44
Quicksilver - 5
Resilience - 5
Venom - 3
Intuition - 5
ASSASSIN - 25 - 69
Slayer - 5 (9)
Silent Resolve - 5
Enforcer - 5 (8)
Hit & Run - 5
High Velocity - 5 (8)
My Specter COM adds 4 to Slayer and 3 to Enforcer and High Velocity, and has Ammo Regen. Side note: I love ammo regen.
I use three different sniper rifles and an SMG. I use:
Jakobs Bessie against bosses with easy-to-hit Critical Hit spots
Jakobs Skullmasher for long-range purposes
Whitting’s Elephant Gun for medium- to short-range purposes
Maliwan HellFire for when I get surrounded
I have the Rose shield, and I don’t remember which Grenade mod I have, but I don’t really use grenades anyway, so it doesn’t really matter. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s an incendiary longbow.
So, with this build, a Bessie-wielding Lilith can do +645% Critical Hit damage, whereas a Bessie-wielding Mordecai can only do +630%. Which is not a big difference, I now realize.
Anyway, thoughts on making this better and/or thoughts on whether or not Mordecai is still a better sniper are sought.
