Who's the best tank?

I'm putting money on Axton, with all his shield skills, health skills, forbearance, and even grit, plus a turret to draw fire. Salvador has his Brawn Tree of course, and Maya can at least heal well, but I don't think they can take the hits like Axton can.

Also, how well does "tanking" do for a party of four? Is it even noticeable or useful? Or does each person more or less have to take care of themselves?

Salvador. And by a very large margin once he gets come at me bro.

Axton can make a play for it, but he's not a true tank.

To me, it seems like everybody is a tank in their own way. So, it depends on the way you look at it, such as Axton and his turret or Sal...just being Sal.

Can't be a tank w/o aggro control.
Not a good one anyways.

You mean that you are putting your money on Axton's Turret....

Fine, I can live with that

Salvador... the dude takes massive damage... gets his shield busted... takes chunks of damage to health, goes gunzerk and gets 50% back

the best tank is the one which stops tanking and starts helping deal damage.

I remember Velvet Hammer was going to post about how Axton was the best tank, I am still waiting to see this build that makes him better than Sal.
