Disclaimer: I’m a noob Flak player. I main Moze btw.
So I’d been following some Flak builds in Youtube just to have an idea of what’s viable and possible.
My benchmark is solo true Maliwan takedown at M10. I had good success wirh Gypsy’s old lvl 57 Gamma flak build. Now at 65 I have incorporated Moxxy’s Gamma flak build with similar success. Success here means I completed takedown without sweating and swearing a lot.
I also tried a Rakk Peregrine Melee build. It’s awesome but I feel it’s a little bit cheesy wirh Fish Slap. Someone gave me a lvl 65 Fish Slap and it’s even more awesome but I feel that’s modded (big no for me)
So I found this other Flak Rakk buikd that promises ease of use and weapon variety. I got most of the stuff here minus the Frozen Heart: https://youtu.be/orN-LXLAvAw
Some things I don’t understand:
the creator claims this a tanky build with stop gap. Right at the first phase my Flak already goes down A LOT. There’s a gap within Stop Gap activation that makes Flak vulnerable.
Killing the first three guards takes two mags of Rad x3.Starved Beast or 1.5 mag of Rad Flipper both with 100% weapon dmg anoint. That’s way way slow compare to my Moze and Flak Gamma
If you read the comments there’s some people echoing the same thing.
On the pro side, doing main story is easy with this build but I don’t care about that.
So my question is what am i missing or this build is just pure BS and were craftily edited to make it look good. I don’t buy in the claim that every YT build is bad. Moxxy’s and Gypsy’s Flak worked for me.
