I’m going for an aggressive shotgun build, and am currently level 17, trying to get Hard to Kill and Overcharge ASAP. But I wonder - what would be more beneficial? Using the ten seconds of OC, recalling Wolf & Saint, and summoning them again, or keeping them going to reap the potential added DPS of Wolf, especially with Laser Guided?
If you’re specced into Laser Guided I’d say go with keeping Wolf alive. Worked very well early on with my pistols-only build last time I tried it.
For now I’m planning to focus on the Dreadnought and Cyber Commando skill trees, but I’ll keep that in mind.
Laser Guided and Wolf + Saint support is way better than Overcharge alone, just keep your fellow drones alive as much as you can.
Laser Guided no matter what build you’re going for…essential Wilhelm ability. Hard To Kill, not so much.
As for an aggressive shotgun build, the Howitzer COM + the Flakker (if you find one) is pretty strong!
Level 20 and I haven’t found a single decent Torgue shotgun… Keeping a Howiter in my back pocket for that special occasion That said, I was thinking more about Jakobs to abuse the boosts to accuracy, crit damage and reaload speed, but I can’t seem to find these either. Currently rolling with a Mauler COM and Boganella, and they pretty much shred.
As for Hard to Kill… well, most people hate it, but I’ve heard it being praised as a life saver. I want to at least see if I can keep my stacks high, but if that (likely) fails, I’ll just go with Fortify for the extra health and damage.
Try the golden chest if you have keys, or farm the vending machines. If you can get a decent Ravager, you’ll be set.
I don’t like using keys, and I despise farming. Plus, my current gear is perfectly fine. I trust in RNGesus.
