I'm level 24 right now about halfway through my first playthrough as commando. I have my survival tree about 2/3 through, and about 5 points dedicated to sentry on the left-side tree (guerilla I think it is?). I have a sentry engineer mod that adds to sentry also, and also adds to resourceful (reduces cooldown time).
Does anyone have a similar build? (I'm aiming by 50 to be all the way down on survival, and down to scorched earth, maybe? hopefully? further? than that on guerilla, and just leave gunpowder empty).
What is your preferred build for commando, and why?
Started on Survival in my first playthough. Gemini was cool, and made playing through the game easier. I really like Gemini as a skill, especially with rockets pods and shields.
Then, when I was farming bosses, I switched to the build that's generally accepted as the most efficient: Double Up (Guerilla) and Gunpowder to Longbow. It was great for the sheer killing power, albeit I found it a bit boring.
Strangely, I ended up settling on Gunpowder for Nuke. It was originally not even a choice for me, since I figured I'd always be either Double Up or Gemini. Even though Nuke is underpowered in comparison, I find it to be the most fun.
