I've got two Mechros right now. One that has nothing to do with DT, is almost pure Anarchy plus Shock and Shield bonuses.
And then there's one that I'm playing like an engineer, focused fully on the Deathtrap. so far I got all the DT related talents in BFF, now I'm going through LBT, got shield capacity, 4 points in Gorilla Strength, and 1 point in The Stare.
So far, few questions.
1) Is Buck Up worth keeping? I mean, it DOES restore my shields, but that's precious time the enemy is wailing on DT instead of him wailing on them. But on the other hand, that shield boost has come in handy a lot.
2) What other perks would you suggest? Shock Storm? Do the "chance of shock and damage of shock" perks affect the chance and damage of the shock attacks that Deathrap causes like Make It Sparkle and Shock Storm?
3) For weapons I'm switching to slag and electric pistols and snipers, to weaken enemies while DT goes in for the kill. ANy other suggestions? I don't care about the direct damage of my guns this time around, just focusing on effects, playing a full on Engineer.

In LBT I'm down to Make It Sparkle; in BFF got Close Enough, Cooking Up Trouble, and Upshot Robot; in OC down to Rational Anarchist. I realise most might consider Annoued Android a waste of time, but it takes advantage of my current Anarchist mod and it's working out for now.

Avoid all of DT's special attack skills (Buck Up included) other than Explosive Clap. You do not want him wasting his time trying to restore shields or firing his laser when he can be slicin' n dicin'. Robot Rampage is OK to take if you decide to go into Ordered Chaos but really it's not needed. Also, all 5 ranks of Shock storm are nice to have since it triggers on every DT kill.
