Question about this Axton build

#1jonesy20Posted 4/7/2013 7:25:30 PM
I've never seen anyone on this board use this build before: http://www.bl2skills.com/commando.html#50050100002305010000055050005151

I'm not sure if this means that I've discovered an amazing build that no one else has thought of yet (unlikely), or that this isn't as good as I think it is (more likely).

I'm in love with the fact that I can longbow my turrets where ever I want them, and they'll stick up high on a wall or the ceiling and blast the enemies with rockets. I plan on using my last five levels to max out Battlefront so I can use one turret at a time and have Battlefront active most of the time.

Can I get some opinions on this?

Both turrets share the same cooldown, so putting only one out at a time wastes the Gemini skill.

No Onslaught/Double Up? Meh.

But seriously, you've got some nice survivability by going down survival (durr), but you miss out on some serious potential offense by not going fully down either of the other trees. And like someone else said, the 2 Gemini turrets share a duration/cooldown, so using only one at a time is pointless.

The turret isn't very powerful on its own, even with rocket pods. It's useful for Battlefront and slagging some enemies and being a distraction.

It's pretty bad...

Agreed with Shadow, you're missing out some of his great skills: Onlaught, Double Up
And also on Axton's best skill: Battlefront (you should definitely be making use of it since you have Resourceful).

Also, why Expertise? It's a mediocre skill, max Impact instead.

My commando barely uses 'survival', most of his skill points go to Guerilla for the slagged turret and Gunpowder.
