Take Takedown Downtown

Zanes threads are so empty I want to make a post.
I did the original and modified M10 G. Takedown with this. I didn’t have to use a cutpurse artifact (but truth be told, I had one in the backpack)


The Build


It’s an ASE Deathless build.
I wanted to take the most damage I can get, but have access to Deterrence Field and Double Banger . Adrenaline doesn’t add much, but even if it just takes one second of our cooldown, it’s better than the rest.


The Gear

Weapons:

  • Yellowcake
    Anoint: 150% radiation under 50% life. On Action Skill End anoints.
    Damage Dealer, Mayhem gadget destroyer. I’d recommend a x1 version, to be more ammo efficient. I haven’t tried a Backburner yet, but I imagine it being problematic during crystal fights, for boss fights however I think a cryo or corrosive Backburner will do really well.

  • Projectile Recursion
    Anoint: 150% radiation under 50% life. On Action Skill End anoints.
    This will end crowded fights real quick after blowing up the clone. Try to get a fire and/or cryo/corro version, if you go for a Rad150/50 anoint. Get a x1 version to be more ammo efficient. Try to get 4 elements in summary on your gear. A Reflux or Redistributor in the same style should do similarly

  • O. P. Q. System
    Anoint: 150% radiation under 50% life. On Action Skill End anoints.
    For finishing of the last enemy or getting distant second winds. That’s about it. A good Kaoson or maybe even Sandhawk should do similarly.

  • Monarch
    Anoint: 150% radiation under 50% life. On Action Skill End anoints.
    Helping you clearing the crystals, and reducing enemies armor bars, with inherent or ASE elements. This is the variable slot, where you can also consider something like Hyperfocus or Dictator , or whatever you want to try.


Shield:

  • Transformer
    Anoint: On Action Skill End gain 50% additional cryo/corrosive/fire damage.
    keeps you alive and nullifies shock attacks. Try to collect multiple ASE version, so you can adapt to the situation. If you’re super aggressive you can use an Old God

Grenade:

  • It’s Piss
    Anoint: On Action Skill End gain 50% additional cryo/corrosive/fire damage.
    Debuffs enemies and procs ASE. You can use other grenades for proccing consecutive hits or keeping your barrier alive, and/or Stormfront for helping you survive with the Transformer

Class Mod:

  • Seein Dead
    Secondaries: All Damage rolls, as well as maybe additional cooldown or shield related stats.
    Surprise…, who would’ve thought we use this COM \s

Artifact:

  • Deathless
    Prefix: Ice Breaker, Atom Balm, Snowdrift, Cutpurse.
    Secondaries: All Damage rolls, as well as maybe additional cooldown or shield related stats.

Guardian Ranks

Recommended Level: 225

  • Hunter
    Level to 100 Harmageddon
  • Survivor
    Level to 75 Emergency Response
  • Enforcer
    Level to 50 C-C-Combo

Mayhem Mods

  1. Speed Demon or Big Kick Energy
  2. Healy Avenger
  3. Laser Fare, Chain Gang or Poolparty
  4. Buddy System

Strategy

Disclaimer: only use Deterrence Field during crystal fights.

Mayhem Gadgets (Buddies, Lasers, Hearts) will explode if the Yellowcake is shot in their general direction and increase your damage and survivability.

  1. Health bar enemy areas: run through them once, to spawn as much monsters as possible and blow up the clone to mow them down with the Recursion . This works well with a fire element weapon or at least one ASE anoint. For literally anything else in this takedown, get rid of the fire element.

  2. Crystal fights: Place a Deterrence Bubble on the border of a crystal area, that faces the main enemy spawn of that area. Summon the clone outside of said crystal area, so it can pull a bit of aggro away from it. Defend the area with Yellowcake by jumping out of it backwards when getting overwhelmed. One crystal should be done completely first, so the others are easier to manage.

  3. Platforming Parts: keep your clone in safety and be ready to swap. During the last part with the narrow path, hug a rock with your back and burst very thing down with the recursion.

  4. Anathema:
    Choose your favorite pair of opposing jump pads and stay there. If you reach one of his many immunity phases, jump up, turn around, wait for his bubble to blow up and jump back. Every. Single. Time.

  5. Scourge:

    • If the Arena gets too crowded, use Recursion.
    • Pay attention if you use explosive weapons, sometimes he pulls you, but you can quickly swap out of it with the clone.
    • if he enters his immunity phase walk up to him and swap or summon the clone. Redheads will walk to your clone and if not the O. P. Q. System can easily detonate them from afar.
  6. Skips:
    Use: Skills, Tempodemon, Crader EM-P5 , double or triple speed while full shields, speed rolls on artifacts, Antifreeze COM-skill Buffs. And the clone as a fail safe.
    Where to skip is on YouTube.


lol, this took longer than I thought it would, I hope someone actually reads this. :joy:
