The recent renewed interest in Axton around here inspired me to try a few new builds and challenging playstyles with him that I’ve never tried before. At the moment, I’m focusing on a Torgue allegiance build and a Fastball/Tediore build. The catch is, I’m trying to find a way to run these builds with very limited loadouts and without swapping weapons too much to slag enemies. With my Tediore/Fastball build, I had this crazy idea of using only Baby Makers and Fastballs, just because the Baby Maker is one of my favorite weapons in the game (I’m weird, I know) and also because the Baby Maker’s reloads are more reliable and easier to hit targets with than the Avenger’s (not to mention the Baby Maker is much easier to acquire). I’d have a Fastball of each element in my backpack and a Baby Maker of each element in my four weapon slots. My main shield would be a Big Boom Blaster to keep those grenades coming and my class mod of choice would be a blue Expert Grenadier with +6 Steady and +5 Grenadier. However, before I spend any more time building this spec, I need to clear a few things with the experts around here:
The Fastballs would actually serve as my primary weapons and do most of the killing for me, so would a single Turret specced into Double Up and a slag Baby Maker in the first weapon slot be enough to fulfill all of my slagging needs?
Given the nature of Tediore weapons, ammo consumption could be a problem here, so I’m thinking a stockpile relic with bonuses to SMG ammo capacity and grenade count as my relic of choice (alternating with the matching element Bone of the Ancients depending on the enemy and area) would help solving this problem a little. Am I right or am I worrying too much about this?
The rest of the gear in my backpack would be a Blockhead for ammo emergencies and other specific situations (just because it’s my second favorite Tediore weapon, really), a Tediore allegiance relic with bonuses to damage and magazine size (just to go with the theme, I doubt I’ll ever equip it) and finally a purple Tediore Blast Proof Shield with higher recharge rate than capacity and less than 2 seconds delay for those moments when the Big Boom Blaster just isn’t giving me the protection I need. Would that be enough? Remember that I wanna keep this as Tediore exclusive and as limited as possible in terms of weapons.
Thanks in advance for any advice on this!
