First, I've already done about everything with my lvl 50 Axton so I'm looking for a new character who plays differently. Before the Mechromancer came out I was set on playing as Maya for my 2nd character, but everyone here seems to be saying that she is the worst character to play as. Is this true? My only hesitance towards playing as Gaige is that her skill is so similar to Axton's turret.
i did Gaige as my second 50, and IMO did not like her 1 bit.... deathtrap spends more time doing nothing then killing.... though when he does decide to attack he does a good amount of damg, but going from enemy to enemy was so random (sometimes he would kill then just sit there) he would die before killing 3-4 bandits...
my 3rd 50 was maya and she was moved up to being my alt (my main is a 50 axton as well) and i loved her, shes a boss killer, especially invincible, since they can be slagged... and is just a beast 1 on 1 IMO....
Maya is my favorite. Very flexible, can handle any type of enemy without problem. Except may be those immune to phaselock, mainly thrashers.
Gaige is crazy fun and powerful, but you have to be extremely careful not to die and lost your anarchy stacks. And you have to rely on robot to kill flying enemies. And lots of skills are bugged. And it is not fit for short game sessions (again, because of anrachy stacks). But still, crazy fun.
Gaige is hands down the strongest, and you cant miss with her, her bullets bounce of the ground and homes in on enemies, I can clear a room without have to enter it, I just stand and shoot from the outside.
I have all char lvl 50, Maya is awsome, but Gaige is a beast. I never use my DT
