Your Ideal COMs

Some discussion over at the last patch thread made me want to ask, just for fun

What would be your ideal COM for one or many characters ?


  • We’re designing normal COMs: so blue boost 2 skills by +6 and +5, purple boost 3 by +5/4/4, no legendary or whatever
  • Base Bonus has to make sense, nothing like “bonus gun damage: 250%”
  • Only skills that can be boosted without breaking the game are allowed (So no +5 to Inconceivable to get 100% chance of proc)
  • Bonus points to anyone that designs a coherent COM (with a definite playstyle in mind and a title and skills that speak of a certain trope…not just a mish mash of good skills and stats)

Also, is your ideal COM already in the game ?
Or maybe it would be if you were allowed to swap just one skill, or modify the base bonus slightly ?

Here’s mine, to set the tone

Modified Trickster COM
+3X% fire rate
Chain reaction
Reaper (replaces BP)

The lone Gunman

  • Movement speed
    +One shot one kill
  • Ambush

+3X% Damage resistance
+Ain’t got time to bleed
+Yippee kay yay

  • 5 shots or 6


  • something…
  • Elemental empathy
  • Numbed nerves
  • Pain is power

What are yours ? :slight_smile:


Curious as to what your ideal Axton mod would be. I would love one with +47% grenade damage, +6 Onslaught and +5 Battlefront.

My ideal one would be if they made a grenadier that boosted
+45% cool down rate
+40% Grenade damage
+6 battlefront
+5 resourceful
Other possible skill would be steady

I’m not familiar with Axton enough to really dig into it and make something truly good, but here goes:


  • fire rate
    +Metal storm

For the Psycho class:

Fire rate after kill   +30%
+x Bloodbath
+y Nervous Blood
+z Embrace the Pain

… because fire-rate and bloodbath (probably wouldn’t still use though, not enough melee).

I made up a couple of Legendary COMs tailored to my personal playstyles in a discussion I had with Piemanlee in the “Make up your own Legendaries” a while ago:

Now, if we’re talking about non-legendary versions, here’s what I always wanted:


For a playstyle based on delivering powerful burst/single shot damage while coming out of Decepti0n, maneuvering around enemies to escape fire and reentering Decepti0n as fast as possible. Repeat. Manufactured by Jakobs.

Passive boosts:

+Cooldown Rate
+Reload Speed

Skill boosts:

+0ne Sh0t 0ne Kill


Kinda like Piemanlee’s, it’s a mix of the Grenadier and Engineer COMs, specifically tailored for explosive builds and meant to boost grenade damage while keeping the turrets up for as long as possible. Manufactured by Torgue.


+Grenade Damage
+Cooldown Rate




Dude, that’s very close to a Spy COM :stuck_out_tongue:
You should have a look at my Spy build :slight_smile:

Blood Bath
Boiling Blood
Strip the Flesh


I sense a Jakobs theme :stuck_out_tongue:

Is it that obvious? I thought I was being subtle about it.

My first thread on the forums was me asking if a com like this existed
+40%~explosive damage
+6 bloodbath
+5 strip the flesh
Other skill could be
Elemental empathy or taste of blood to have a skill in either tree except melee.
