Hey guys Spunky here! Over the past couple of days I have gone about asking people for their builds on how they play brick. I’ve asked users such as Gothalion, U1849KA, bobtm, and taken DEADLYkurpers’ shotgun brick build and thrown them all into 3 complete video guides on how to use brick successfully! All of this is done with live commentary and not post.
First is my favorite!
NOTICE: Unbreakable DOES NOT WORK while berserking, and Blood Sport DOES stack upon itself so the more enemies you kill in rapid succession the faster/more health you regen.
Your build should look like this and if you have moxxi your other 2 skill points would go into Bash, and Sting Like a Bee. It’s also good to run a skirmisher class mod with +4 in Short Fuse and a +% Team Maximum Health. You will also need a good shield with 60% Health Boost.
NOTICE: The Ogre used in this video IS a modded (constructed weapon) I used it for demonstrational purposes only and that’s IT. Please do not flame for me using it if you are a “purist” If enough people want me to Re-Record this video I will do it. If you want me to re-record it let me know in a PM.
This build is the most versatile build for Brick. You can run Titan, Ogre, Centurion, Blast Master, and Bombardier all on one build! In the Blast Master video I cover all those class mods and even the Alacricious Rose shield and it’s uses with Unbreakable and it’s health regen! If you still need more information on Blast Master head over to Gothalion’s Guide to Blast Master…ing for more details.
If you need more info on shotgunning with Brick, check out DEADLY’s Shotgun Advice for Brick!

Also, your 2 points from moxxi can go anywhere you’d like, I threw mine into Wide Load for some extra rockets.
This build is by far the strangest build i’ve seen for brick but it works suprisingly well even in Knoxx! This build joins the 2 most lethal bricks together into one only they’re not as lethal as they are by themselves but they still kick out some pretty high damage and kill things pretty quickly while providing enough durability to survive!
U1849KA and bobtm take credit for this one.
This is the most complete guide to using brick successfully in knoxx, and even in the main game. I know there are probably other builds out there that are successful but I tried to get the MOST successful ones and put them into one complete guide. I hope this helps answer most to all of the questions anyone has about brick and how to use him effectively.
Gothalion (Blast Master) - “I find it more benefitial to go without a muscleman shield, mostly because diehard brings you back with a fair amount of health, also second winding will recharge your shields completely. I plan and set up second winds to minimize down time and keep a fairly full health meter as much as possible.”
U1849KA/Spunky (Hybrid Build) - “This Build is for the Tediore Common Man loyalty class mod. Couple this build, with a perfect 660 Common Man class mod with +4 to short fuse, 61% weapon damage, and 32% shield boost, a Tediore Alacritous Panacea (quick health regen shield), Tediore Double Anarchy, and you’ve got yourself a damn fine build. I (Spunky) was able to solo crawmerax in 3 minutes with this build.”
U1849KA (on Carnages) - “Unshielded, fleshy targets are particularly susceptible to blast, combined with the +61% damage, means a Carnage shotgun is actually very effective at killing midgets. When it comes to Skag Riders, the midget on the back is invariably the bigger threat, and when the skag dies, the midget will get a huge health boost, so killing the midget first is imperative. Carnages will deal less damage to the Skag, helping to ensure you kill the midget first to prevent them coming back stronger on-foot. Running with a 918 damage 2-shot, and a 752 damage 12-shot, I was able to take-on anything the Road’s End skag dens could throw at me, including multiple Rapparees at once. The hail of mini-rockets at the Skags’ feet killed the midgets in no time, leaving me with just a few harmless Alpha skags to mop-up with Berserk or the Anarchy. A Carnage Defender would be ideal, as you will want to be free to fire rockets liberally.” Common Manliness Common Manliness 2
NOLAftw (Blast Master) - NOLAftw has a lent us a hand with his Badass build and I must say it’s very very satisfying! “My primary weapon for the setup is my shattering bastard, but a blast hammer is always a decent replacement since the mod has +4 to endowed.” Badass Video
BIG_C_23 (Hybrid Build) - BIG_C_23 has lent us a kind hand with his take on the hybrid build, centered mainly around Blast Master. His build is approximately a 70/30 in favor of Blast Master. Explode-A-Punch The latest and Greatest Brick Build
Juub (Crawmerax) - Juub has had many successful runs against this big purple crab and I feel his guide deserves to be in here! So here’s a link to " Juub’s Guide to Crawmerax ‘‘Solo’ing’’ "
tom12121112 (Guide) - Sir Tom has kindly taken the time to write an excellent guide about slapping people in the titties with launchers. I for one find it highly amusing when i’m not zerking. Check out his guide here!
