Jakobs Zer0 v2, whom I’ve dubbed OrneryZ(most of his shotguns have this prefix due to matching grip), set out to collect more stuff for NeglectedSal (the Deputy).
First thing he got was a pair of slag LadyFists. One with Bandit grip and another with Jakobs grip. Didn’t want to spend too much time on this farm so I stopped there. At some point Deputy Sal will go back and get a matching grip.
Since I got the LadyFist fairly quickly I decided to do a couple runs for a ROM in Oasis. I hate this farm as it is SOOO boring. After the initial fight you just run to the gun…over and over again. Most times I give myself a time restriction of 1 hour then stop. I didn’t expect this to be fruitful, but lo and behold a Rustlers Orphan Maker appeared after about 20 minutes!
I feel I was both lucky and unlucky as the ROM requires either a Bandit or Jakobs grip to work with the Deputy build. So I got lucky in that it had a Bandit grip and a mag size of 3. Unlucky in that all the other parts on the gun are also Bandit. Of course I would have liked it to have Jakobs parts…oh well. It’ll work and I’ve set that mission up for possible future re-farms.
Next Zer0 went to his bank and retrieved his Lvl 72 Deputy’s Badge to replace NeglectedSal’s lvl50. Really not necessary since the only difference is a 1% improvement in shotgun damage. Also had a Doc’s Triquetra with Torgue Grip to give to Sal.
Dumped all the acquisitions on to a Mule and OrneryZ retired for the night.
Deputy NeglectedSal collected all his new toys.
First place he went was the Unassuming Docks. Figured I would do a couple runs in search of the Chaotic Evil COM w/ +5 Money Shot. With the ROM/Lady Fist combo those skeletons didn’t stand a chance. It was truly Ridiculous. I did about 5 runs and was rewarded with a Legendary Titan from a Tubby Bones and the purple Chaotic Evil COM I had been searching for. Good stuff.
I respecc’d and followed the Deputy Sal Brawn build to the tee…almost. I did spec out of Inconceivable completely, but put a point in Asbestos since it’s boosted by the CE Com.
Did a couple runs at the Snowman. He went down fast…real fast…stupid fast. Got an upgraded Leg Berserker COM from the train.
Next stop…Nexus Badlands. Rabid Skags? no problem, Loaders? bah…Saturn? well…he did give me problems. I had whittled his health down pretty good but he killed me. Paid my fee to the New-U and went again. This time I swapped the LadyFist for the Slag Rubi and alternated between the two to keep my health up. Took Saturn down. It was more of a challenge than when I do it with Zer0, but it wasn’t that bad. I was surprised at the range that the ROM is effective as I kept at a pretty good distance for most of the fight.
My last stop of the night was Southpaw. Did two runs…on the first I made it to the end where one of Rouf’s body guards got me. I was trying to complete the map without depending on the Rubi using only the LadyFist in my main hand. While this does kill stuff the fastest it doesn’t provide the healing. On the second run I stuck primarily with the Rubi and mopped the floor with those guys.
Deputy Sal is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Even though virtually all his gear is made up of sub par parts
It’s a lot of fun but I still have a lot of practice to do. I still don’t feel entirely comfortable with having my shotgun in my off hand. It’s also far a more chaotic play style than I’m used to as well. He is the polar opposite of Zer0. That said, I’m glad I stuck it out, got him to 72 and have been able to Deputize him.
Really looking forward to killing more stuff with Sal.
