I was running a BM/SoR build with the Mind Sweeper Com. Went only two points into TRL so I could keep health gate and Tenacious Defense.
Sadly, the damage provided by Desperate Measures just isn’t worth it with this build. Things were taking forever to die and even worse, when I switched to BM/DW with the same COM, not only was I doing a ton more damage thanks to Pull the Holy Pin and Short Fuse (and this is with NON-splash weapons like Shreddifier or Faisor), but I was even more survivable because I could spam grenades for health regen, even if my shields dropped more often. And I didn’t have to worry about armored enemies negating healing grenades.
SoR also suffers from Drowning in Brass and Phalanx Defense requiring multiple kills to get stronger, but due to the massive amount of health a lot of the enemies have, especially if a badass comes around, it’s hard to keep the buffs up, which causes the damage to suffer even more. DiB is the worst offender with its really short uptime.
It’d be nice if we got a BM/SoR based COM that procs kills skills easier like Zane instead of bad ones like Green Monster which doesn’t even have basic things like decaying stacks and ruins your damage if you remove your finger from the trigger for even a moment.
For now, I guess I’ll be sticking with BM/DW as I kill things so much faster.
