this guy seems like glass canon i think if a class mod can help then 10/5 in iron hand is essential to play this guy at all
because he is a glass cannon. That’s the point of an assassin, max damage without getting hit.
Zer0 is an assassin, he’s not intended for in-your-face without using Decepti0n and one hell of a gun or his digi-blade.
Iron Hand won’t help you much. Tell us more of your gear, skill points, playstyle and we can help you out and give you some advice.
Zer0 is a glass cannon, this is why he has Decepti0n as his action skill (up to 6 seconds of being invisible on a short cooldown) and does really well with snipers (skills with dmg+crit bonuses) or melee (because of skills that boost melee massively; Many Must Fall and Killing Blow especially).
Did you just accidentally happen to manage that combination of skill and the choise of wording or is that a parody? Someone else did that exact same thing a short while ago (Iron Hand, essential).
Seriously tho, Iron Hand is useful for melee depending on what combination of shield, grenade and bone you have at OP levels to prevent accidental grenade suicides. When it comes to the health boost vs enemy attacks it’s very rarely doing anything. Sometimes it provides a lucky situation where an attack keeps you above healthgate whereas without it you’d end below 50 %. It’s main use is to just provide the constant small additive melee bonus to face tanking situations pushing a bit more damage.
As for Zero being weak, he is not.
