A couple explosive Axton questions.

#1WretchedOwlPosted 3/7/2013 5:03:25 AM
So I'm currently running an explosive Axton build, as mentioned above, and its pretty badass no doubt.

My normal rotation includes the Cobra as a sniper and a Meteor Shower (dmg 69k x12)

I was just wondering if people prefer the Longbow over the Cobra or not for this type of build. I've never used a Longbow before, as I still can't get one to drop, but I'm wondering if its something I should more actively pursue.

As for the Meteor Shower, I just can't find anything out there that's better as far as explosives go, but a close second might be my Bouncing Bonny. Any suggestions for a better grenade?

Cobra all the way man.
Just such a better weapon.

Meteor shower is amazing for axton, and like you said the bouncing bonnie is a good bet too. If you have some spare crystals get yourself an explosive Crossfire. I really like the duration and area of effect on it.

For some serious damage output though...
Dont think I'm crazy..
Get yourself a longbow slag singularity.
These bad boys are just massive mob killers.
Line up your targets and fire some explosive rounds to deal some serious damage.

Now that you mention it, a singularity does sound like a good idea for large crowds. and I'll keep my eye out for a crossfire, I've never actually used one before.

Want to try out a longbow ? I got one to drop last night, you are welcome to try it out. Consider it a loan, if you like it, it's yours.

I appreciate the offer, but I prefer to get my own loot most of the time. and as mentioned before, I figure I'm better off with the Cobra anyway. Thanks though.

I also plan on using a cobra on my axton. Just not sure which is the best. I heard tiny tinas would be the best. I'm not sure why though.

This is my rough build for Axton right now. I may be slightly out on some points; -

http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?50055150415005014200011000000000

This build focuses on a mixture of explosives and AR damage.

Equipment I use; -

Torgue Ravager
DP Unkempt Harold
Scorpio
Mongol (FFYL)
Deadly Bloom shield or Big Boom Blaster

I also keep a lot of Dahl stuff in my back pack to take advantage of 'Duty Calls' skill

I also have a +30% explosive relic and also switch around between a Rifleman Mod, Heavy Gunner Mod or Sheriffs Badge Relic depending on the situation.
