Gunzerkers - I'm dying a crapton. Halp.

#1meltor13Posted 12/29/2012 7:23:52 PM
I'm specced into the Brawn tree to the bottom, and about halfway down the middle tree.

I'm dying super fast and it doesn't feel like any of the damage reduction or regen abilities help me much. Should I just respec and go into the Green/Blue trees only?

My gear is also probably not the best, but its at least mostly of my same level. Im in the Torgue DLC and getting my ass handed to me quite often.

What shield, relic and class mod are you using?

What're you generally doing when in a firefight?

im using a stockpile relic with +35% ammo to shotgun and sniper rifles, and +2 grenades.

shield is just a basic shield, 31655, 4207 recharge rate, 3.50 recharge delay. lvl 49.

class mod is a hulking titan with +96.8 health regen and +29% gun damage, with a -1839 to shield capacity and +4 to Hard to Kill, +2 to Out of Bubblegum, and +3 to I'm the Juggernaut (all of which I am specced into).

i normally just kill a few peeps and then when **** gets real i activate gunzerking and try to mow stuff down. I have an AR, a SMG, a pistol and a Sniper (that I mainly use for long range encounters) as my weapons. none of the auto weapons are terribly accurate so while trying to move in for the kill i tend to get mowed by enemies.

Also I activate the 'Flip off' skill right before I die to get back to 100% health. It usually doesn't save me much time.

You could snag a Rubi, when equipped it gives you 12% of ANY damage you do back as health, makes a great offhand equip.

Not really sure what to tell ya, maybe try using a slag weapon in your off hand to boost damage output

The Brawn tree is not really worth it imo. I have a lvl 50 Gunzerker with points pretty evenly divided among the Gunlust and Rampage tree (a little more in Rampage). My guy rolls with mostly shotguns (though lately I've relied heavily on the Redundant Fibber with the Bee), and with Money Shot and powerful guns I do tons of damage (the Titan mod and guns that use more than one ammo per shot are required). Gunzerking while in Fight for Your Life is a necessity, and with my build I can gunzerk nearly all the time (cooldown anywhere from 0 to maybe 10 sec at most). He's a lot of fun to use.

My spec is pretty similar to yours, I am mostly brawn and halfway gun lust. I would definetly agree with throwing a slag gun in your offhand for gunzerking, it works wonders. I have in my mainhand a really good vladoff electric eridian AR and in my offhand I have a fast shooting sniper rifle that has an over 50 percent slag rate. I mow through alot of stuff.

Try that?

Invest in Down, Not Out, equip a rocket launcher in your right hand and a fast firing weapon of the same element in your left hand. Even if you go down, it doesn't matter, you'll get up immediately. Bonus if that rocket launcher is the Creamer, healing explosions make for a good time.
