So recently I posted a Scourge build I called ‘Zanefleeting’ which took no effort to skate through M4 content. I found it insanely boring though effective.
While away on holidays I had a dream about BL3, it was short and sweet and what it featured was 1-hitting a sizeable group of enemies at once with an ION Cannon. When I woke up I had the idea to find a COM or Artifact that would give +splash radius. When I got back I acquired such a com and got real lucky to also get +splash dmg, I was hoping I would have a Cutpurse with +radius but no luck there. Turns out though +28% splash radius is enough to turn the ‘single target ION’ into a very effective AOE weapon.
I find this to be a lot more fun to play then the Scourge build, while still being nearly as easy and just as effective.
Here is the video showing the build and a run through M4 Slaughter Shaft.
Here is a clip showing a somewhat messy kill of Wotan M4 using the build. The Wotan kill is messy but the Takedown run was simple and uneventful save for 1-shotting Kraken.
