More focused on actually making Axton himself better:

(for this one, the site has Do or Die as only having one level to it when it actually has 5, so imagine the 4 levels in Duty Calls are in Do or Die)

I think some of the skills will change depending on what mods I find.

It really depends on your play style as well as the play style of the people you are playing with. Would you like Axton to kick more ass himself or would you like to hang back and let the turret do the heavy lifting.

You must be this tall to ride.

Yeah that's the thing... I'm gonna be playing with 3 friends, so I think they'd appreciate the shields from the turrets, and the extra support.
Maybe what I could do is just play the two separate builds at the same time. I'll play the badass Axton when I'm by myself. and when all my friends are on at the same time I'll play another Axton file with the support build.

lol, its interesting to see how differently people build the same character.

If you are playing with three people you could use either build really.

We don't know how good the nuke is but you could use this to wipe out the small guys while weakening the bigger enemies or you could do the two turrets with the shields to give them cover.

Both builds are good and I would try both and see which one you and the team like more based on all characters builds and play styles.

i have a similar build but i put a point in the longbow turret.
itsn not specific about where the explosion occurs. so if the nuke drops where i place the turret, that would be one more bonus since the range and versitlity would be increased.

i will be going with an "Ahnold" Commando build. all explosions and big guns.

Focus on the turret as your badass ranks will help Axton himself.

I'm pretty sure Do or Die actually only has 1 level.

See the second video.

Now to look at your builds...

Ok, I can't really recommend either build, since it's up to you (they're both pretty solid), but here are my changes...

Turret: Drop Grit, take Quick Charge. (5% of your shields per second from a kill > a 20% chance to not die immediately. You'll still be low health even if Grit does work.)
http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?50550102000000000000055005155001

Gun: Put a point into Longbow. Nuke is now a ranged attack, and your turret has 110% more health. Ignore Duty Calls, you'll end up using elemental weapons if they're at all like they were in BL1. Take Expertise to 3 instead, so you can switch weapons quick in those "OH ****!" moments.
