Mechromancer? Why's it good?

#1doughnutmanPosted 7/23/2013 4:05:12 PM(edited)
So my friend was trying to tell me that mechromancer is stronger than every character. His reasoning for this was "you can shoot walls and hit people." and "deathtrap is op." I don't even see why though. Can someone explain to me why my friend would think those two skills make the mechro stronger than everyone? Because it didn't seem like the 50% chance to shoot off walls was worth it, just seems like a compensation for it's lack of accuracy for anarchy stacks.

The 50% damage reduction isn't very apparent until the higher levels and its definitely made to be a buff for the reduced accuracy from anarchy. Deathtrap is really good for the first two playthroughs if you invest skill points into him. It is a bit depressing when you lose your anarchy stacks and are no longer running around leaving a trail of destruction.

But what about in uvhm? It just seems like the skill trees are kinda too spread out or something like they should be re organized. And it's too anarchy based. I don't see why someone would call her the most powerful character. I'm not looking for a character debate or anything, just someone's reasoning for the mechro btw.

I think your friend is high lol

Don't get me wrong, gaige is ok. But I wouldn't call her the most powerful by any means.

Yeah i tried telling him that my Salvador or Krieg were better than his mechro. So we played and he kept going down. He said "i kill things faster though. Since more of my bullets hit when i miss." At one point he really shot at the walls. Only at the walls, saying how that's the best way to hit people because you don't miss.

If you make the mechro right she is great. On UVHM I have no issues messing around when am board. My mechro is lvl 61 and I only have one point in anrchey thats to have 150 stacks. Seems like everyone has issue with the merco.

She's in no way the most powerful character but she's good enough to not be down all the time. I would say she's the worst, personally I think she's better than Axton

I've seen people say that on solo, having DT out can be like playing co-op.
