OK…there are some REALLY nice additions to Fire Weapons from the new Patch like the Sawbar, Hellfire, and Volcano.
But we all know that Fire Weapons basically suck at the Peak because of the oddities in resitances that the Peak employs.
Explosive and corrosive seem to work best on basically everything at digistruct Peak.
So I got to thinking…with this new patch…and with Axton…and the setting Digistruct Peak
What of the batch of weapons and skill changes would benefit an Axton player BEST in a Digistruct Peak run?
4 weapons quickly jumped to mind
A corrosive Bearcat…which now gets the Grenade Damage Bonus…mixed with a Bone Relic will just MURDER the Peak I believe…with the new changes. (I tested a Fire Version in the Beatdown at OP8 and it was just AWESOME!)
Cobra and Seeker for long range standoff
Ogre for anything.
Which adds basically two more ammo pools for Axton at the Peak which have been seldom used in the past…Sniper and Assault Rifle to the over used Pistol and Shotgun ammo pools.
Legendary Grenadier may become the mod of choice although a Chaotic Neutral Ranger (with Impact and Ranger) and a Legendary Soldier are still really nice as well.
And the new WTF shield looks interesting as heck and a Rough Rider may be another choice with the changes to Crisis management…Naught as well.
Not to mention the possibilities of going Non Elemental and a new Specialist Com with a 10/5 Duty Calls mixed with the new multiplicative aggression relics.
