A guide to the Volcano on Krieg
People always think this weapon is terrible, due to it having less crit damage than a Snider.
BUT, it outperforms the Snider in body shots, the splash radius is huge and increased DOTs damage.
BB builds: The splash radius and damage have REALLY good synergy with BB. All you have to do is aim next to the target or a group of them, and the bloodbath will proc. Leg Reaper is very potent with this weapon, and is easy to use. Also Blood Blister is amazing too, does more per-shot damage, but the Kill-skills last less amount of time.
DOTs based builds: The DOT on this weapon is extremely high, I think it is the highest sniper fire DOT in the game. This means all you have to do is shoot the target a few times, get a few DOTs stacking, and they will burn rather easily. Blaze Torch pumps out the most DOT damage, while a Leg. Torch pumps out the most DPS because of all the fire rate and DOT stacking.
Fuel-the-Blood-based builds: The increased damage dealt as splash damage means when grenade damage is boosted, the weapon gains a very impressive amount of extra overall body hit damage. Diesel Blister COM works so well with this weapon, that I can damage cap after just a 5-enemy chain.
Pain is Power: If you don’t like kill-skills, or don’t have a good Torch COM, you can use a Power Toast or Leg. Sickle COMs to boost its base body-shot damage.
Now, all this means the following: this sniper is good with ANY hellborn build, and is one of my personal favorites.
I will also keep adding to this, but I just now put this together, so expect more info and tips later, also drop down what ya’ll think about this beautiful weapon .
