At high levels is Zer0 powerful playing Solo?


Like what I said earlier, Zero can be made to be a beast. You just need to know what works best with him


I have decided to play a zer0 bloodshed build.You told me some good equipment in your other post.Is there any skills that you would definately recomend getting?


the skills are pretty easy to judge in bloodshed. best thing to remember about playing bloodshed is that you dont HAVE to only use melee. a good gun is still a good gun. you can still snipe well. particularly if you throw a few points into the sniper tree when you have some to spare.

tbqh, id go sniping first. stop at Kill Confirmed, then go on to Bloodshed.

and whoever said that Sniping sucks is an idiot. as ive said countless times, my first full playthrough was snipers only (1-50, TVHM).

is he still strong without the DLC items?

Put it this way, the Rapier is the best melee weapon to use as the bonus is 200% melee damage.

Law is the second best at 100% so is still beastly with the Love Thumper Shield. If you equip the Order Shield with Law then you also get a healing effect on par with damage dealt instead of additional Roid damage with the Love Thumper.

You should be able to do just as well without the DLC items to be honest.

Keep on the look out for good Snipers, Jackobs guns in general and everything else I previously listed.

Thanks, i have him at lv 12 already.I thought i would die a lot but i have only died 3 times he is a crit God.(what lv would you recomend i respec to the bloodshed tree?)

I specced staright into Bloodshed from the start because I new he would be awesome as a melee character.

It really depends on your playstyle, I prefer melee to sniping but that just me. You can always respec at Sanctuary to find the style that suits you best.

In later levels like Caustic Caverns, melee becomes a god-send due to all the vakrids that constantly run around your feet.

In Lynchwood it's a different story. That place is perfect for sniping bandits. So yeah, I always respec depending on the challenge ahead.

I will probably respec at lv 15 for 5/5 in Backstab.

Your build is quite flawed. Grim gets rid of Roid damage from Shields, and you should definitely max out Followthrough and Like the Wind. Resurgence is also pretty bad, Law/Order or a Rubi do a much better job of healing you and Resurgence doesn't restore health from execute melees.
