The key to Axton solo is Double-Up and Gemini. Space them out a bit so baddies like Dukino’s Mom, Saturn’s, and OMGWTH cannot take both out fast. Keep your distance and they will focus on the turrets while you can unload numerous solid rounds.
Use a Moxxi weapon (Grog or Rubi) w/ either Chain Lightning or Storm Front for quick health.
The best weapons I have used w/ Axton (w/ the Bee of course) are:
- Bekah (if you are lucky enough to find) - this thing is a beast!
- Pimpernel (Corrosive or Slag)
- Sandhawk (Corrosive)
Finally when you battle the Assassins don’t wear the Bee because when all 4 spawn immediately you are going to get hit early/often. Switch to a beefy shield like Antagonist or Blockade and equip the DPUH. Your top priorities are Reeth (to the right) and then Rouf. Quasar grenade to help w/ grouping (and healing w/ Moxxi gun) them up when turrets are down really helps too.
Good luck, Axton was my 1st thru the Peak and I started getting pummeled by Assassins around OP5…that’s when I dumped the Bee in that area. It’s tough but awesome as well!
