First of all, I will admit I have no delusions of being a good player (average might be pushing the generosity button). I am trying to complete my first UVHM run and have hit a brick wall on the “Where Angels Fear to Tread” mission. I am playing as Axton and have reached level 63. Assuming the link will work here is my current build:
My questions boil down to the following:
1.)How terrible is this build? I am not above a respec if this is one of those seems good on paper stinks in practice cases. I will go ahead and clarify the original aim behind this build was wanting to emphasize Axton’s gift with explosives and the amusement I get from Torgue weapons. Most of my second winds have been a by product of fastball chunks.
2.) Does anyone have suggestions for acceptable alternatives to the frequently recommended legendary weapons and gear outside the beat to death quest rewards such as the Sandhawk, Pimpernel, and Kitten? I know these guns are awesome but considering they are 1 unlock per playthrough, I was hoping to save them until I reached max level. I know I can farm the train in Mercenary Day and have Golden Keys for the chest, but didn’t know if anyone had a suggestion for “x” is usable if you insist on having an AR or “y” SMG is underrated. Ultimately I know the stock legendary gear mentioned by several community members are the most friendly options for less skilled players but 50 straight nothing runs on Midgemong, Boll, the Boom Bros, and Savage Lee have created a let’s take a break from legendary farming feeling.
3.) Besides “shoot it until it dies” or “aim for the eye,” how in the heck are you suppose to deal with the constructors on UVHM? This is an enemy that has always given me fits even on the lower difficulties thanks to how its advantages stack. I didn’t kill the first one encountered in the highlands as I somehow manged to get close enough to trigger its jump and slam attack and ran under it instead.
4.)If I do manage to reach the bunker, can I save and quit and drop to a lower difficulty to restock my ammo through the cheaper priced vending machine or the random ammo chests in a less dangerous setting without having to redo the run when I switch back to UVHM? I know the bunker fast travel is a one way street so I would not want to leave the area.
As a final point I hope these can be answered from a solo run standpoint as the only friends I have who play Borderlands 2 rage-quit UVHM and refuse to give this mode another shot.
Any help or hey captain oblivious you missed this linkis appreciated.
