I'm new to Borderlands 2, I also suck balls at it and I need help.

I'm playing as Axton, I recently respec'd my character and put all of the skill points into Guerilla. The problem is that I'm currently on Bloodwing in terms of bosses and I'm wondering what I can do to possibly not die as often, I'm dying at least 3-4 times a boss and it's really start to taking a toll on my cash. Should I respec again and invest the other half of my guerilla points into survival/gunpowder? What are some good tips you can give a relatively good player?

A relatively good player wouldn't be stuck at Bloodwing on Normal.

Level up, get better guns. Use gold keys.

that fight is pretty easy. just get behind some cover and he cant really touch you. Pay attention for the buzzer as that indicates that skags are spawning in.

As for gear, are you keeping up to level? If you're having issues with gear you may want to use a shift code or 2 (if there are any active atm) to get some keys and good gear at your level. If not farming some chests could do you some good.

You guys can have your shorter kill times with your fancy sharp swords and bludgeoning weapons. I'll spend the extra 5 minutes looking awesome. - Typhlax

I'm doing pretty well with gear, equipped with all blue items and they're pretty decent for my level atm.

My main question was whether or not I should just respec again and put my skillpoints elsewhere, do people normally focus on 1, 2, or 3 skills trees at a time?

usually just 1 at a time. use this site to show what you're specing into?

I dont know a ton about Axton, but I can try to give some tips.
Also, what level are you?

Rarity doesn't mean that guns are good for your level. A white or green piece of gear at or just below your level (ie 23/24) can be better than a blue or purple piece of gear from level 15-18 most of the time. Sometimes you just have to let go of that rare piece of loot and get the extra cash for it when it becomes useless. Also, I tend to go into one skill tree out the get go. And since they increased the level cap, you should be able to get 2 skill trees to the bottom I think.

Currently using a phone, so I can't use the bl2 spec tool at the moment. I'm level 17 and about turn 18, all of my SP are invested in Guerilla and I have about $5000 along with decent gear that count easily be improved, the one thing that's holding me back is that my friend really likes to steal my loot when I play with him. >.>
