Krieg at end game

#1loximPosted 5/11/2013 11:12:06 AM
So I've getting excited to play Krieg next week, but at the same time I'm thinking about if he will be able to be useful at end game. With the quadruple health pools in UVHM, I get the feeling that he is going to have a lot of trouble using his class design to kill anything. The whole purpose of his character is to be insane melee damage, and even more added with his action skill.

Now when you look at it, UVHM kinda ruins this. Melee damage that I have seen in that mode is so miniscule that you don't even bother with it. So when you got to 61 and start doing bosses, your action skill becomes useless on the majority of the bosses themselves. And during some of the group bosses that spawn super badasses and such, the health pools are insanely high.

Anyways, I really hope he works out and is super fun to play, and hopefully the health on enemies doesn't mess his class up and make him useless. I really want to have fun with this guy.

Krieg's melee damage or melee damage in general?

This isn't a build i would use but I'm just saying with this he gets 1634% melee damage and an extra 25 seconds to kill things, which doubles when he becomes a super mutant as buzz axe will instantly be recharged (Under the maximum circumstances and i don't know if weapons stats (rapier, ect) will stack) And the health and health regen and damage reduction to back it up.

So he's pretty good against normal enemies, but for raid bosses Zer0 and Sal are still LEAGUES ahead of him.

With cheapy crap builds/gear, a 61 Krieg was hitting ~1m each hit. Melee will be fine, and he's got some pretty funky gun skills as well.

Can anyone confirm that melee is useless in UVHM?

I've played with players of more BL2 cheevo's than me, that have played many more hours. Assuming that high BAR, fire rate, non element guns will play a part in its performance.

You have to finish the game twice and reach level 50 before hitting UVHM. If he's worried about UVHM as krieg I doubt he's worried about learning anything, he's just going to fast track to the end and hope kriegs skills make up for his lack of knowing how to properly use him.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
