Axton Builds?

#1PryorbeastPosted 6/30/2013 12:11:14 PM
What are some good builds and weapons for this guy? I've been running mainly gunpowder/guerrilla build but is there a better way to get higher dps out of him?

Torgue/Explosive/Maliwan are the best builds for him pretty much.

I go down the Guerrilla and Survival trees so I have 2 double slag turrets.

Throw those down and destroy all the slagged enemies with DPUH and the Casual Swordsplosion.

Bee + Sandhawk to slagged enemies is also extremely effective

My current build:
http://www.bl2skills.com/commando.html#55103150515505515010111000000000

Shield - Deadly Bloom
Class Mod - Legendary Soldier
Relic - +33% Explosive Damage
Grenade Mod - Longbow Meteor Shower

Guns:

DP Unkempt Harold
Cutting Slagga
Impetuous Ravager
Plump Seeker


Keep in mind an explosive Axton build is gear dependent, but try putting any Torgue guns into his hands with this build and he becomes a powerhouse. The longbow slag nuke turret is a fantastic distraction and slagging tool, but Axton will be the real damage dealer. This is a general purpose build, not so much for raid bosses. In UVHM I'm just steamrolling whatever I encounter. When you do go down into FFYL, well placed grenade throws help you get back up in no time.

Give it a shot. If you want me to elaborate further, just ask.

I think I'm going to give this a try - I've never used the nuke turret. I need to find an explosive relic, although it will be difficult to give up my current one which increases pistol ammo by 62.5% which is great for the DPUH

Gear :
Practiable slow hand ( slag)
Casual swordplosin
fast actons Badaboom
Big boom Blaster ( blast proof preferably, this shield because boosters will resupply one grenade and one rocket ammo along with shield )
meteor shower
Legendary soldier
Blood of the ancients ( max health , shotgun ammo and launcher ammo ) or explosive relic


Ive been running this for awhile and its worked well for me . Kinda like the previous post but with a few variations

Man I've had my eye on the big boom blaster shield. I play with a party usually and it would be nice to have the shield/nade/rocket support. Looks like I need to start farming Pete. I haven't faced him yet with Axton at level 61, but I'm fairly confident I can take him down without much trouble.
