When you're sick of hiding waiting for The Bee to recharge. I have a decent Antagonist on my Gaige that greatly increases her life expectancy and I would like the same for my Axton but the 151k+ amp dmg is nice.....when I can take advantage of it.

My Axton spec is Gunpowder/Survival for DMG and survivability and it works great, I just want a better shield, NO...I need a better shield.

I do have a 94% Sham, my Antagonist does 880% deflection DMG and I heard the Blockade was kinda iffy and I have yet to see an Evolution.

Yea the blockade apparently is odd but it gives you a constant 35 damage resistance and that's nice, and the evolution is one of my favorites because it gives you a big health boost, big shield boost, and elemental resistance to the thing they hit you with last,

Is the Evolution from Torgue? I might have to go crystal hunting again.

I find the Neogenator works better for Axton. It's recharge rate is a higher % of capacity than the Evo is. So it spends more time fully charged, making the Preparation skill work better for you. With 5/5 in willing, that Neo will be fully charged a lot of the time.

Just farm it from Spycho in Frostburn.

According to the wiki the Blockade is currently bugged and its dmg reduction doesn't scale as intended.

Atm i mainly use the Antagonist tbh ... it's a pretty decent shield that adds heavy dmg reduction, has decent capacity, slags stuff and deflects gunfire.

I also use the Sham 94% esp in areas with lots of gun wielding enemies

... and i still carry a set of bees (alk/grou/inflam) around just in case something big refuses to die

For Zero i use my Love Thumper for obvious reasons (melee build)
