Now that Iron Bear is the hot new trend for Moze mains, I felt like giving my thoughts on two of Moze’s IB-centric coms: Bear Trooper and Raging Bear. For now, we’re going to ignore the fact that the best Iron Bear com is actually Blast Master.
Bear Trooper: This is a great com in theory, but it has the same problem that pre-buff TCP had: it doesn’t improve the ability where it counts. The increased Iron Bear duration is nice, but it doesn’t really make IB hit harder in any meaningful way, ironically making it the worst option for an IB-centric build. My proposed change would look something like this:
- +50% Duration
- -50% Fuel Consumption
- +50% Iron Bear Damage
- -25% Iron Bear Cooldown
The purpose of this is to make it capable of competing with the dps being put out by Raging Bear, while also giving it the unique advantage of allowing the user to be in Iron Bear much more often.
Raging Bear: This com is honestly almost perfect, the only problem is that for some reason the bonus damage is capped at 40% (This might have been changed while I wasn’t looking, but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t), which is insanely low compared to how much damage IB can get from Blast Master. The only change I recommend to make this com better is to
remove the damage cap entirely increase the cap to somewhere around 100-150%. Also change the red text from “unbeatable” to “unbearable”. Come on, gearbox.
