I had to buy a new hard drive recently, so I no longer have Gaige. I have to play as vanilla characters now, no Gaige or Krieg. So out of Maya, Salvador, Zer0 and Axton, who's the best?

On a team I'd say Maya for crowd control and utility. For solo, probably Axton for fortifying your position so you can recover when you get overwhelmed.

I'd say Zero, he was my first. You never forget your first.

Sal's the best one, it's hard to say otherwise, but they are all so incredibly balanced that compelling arguments can be made for each.

It's less about which character is the best and more about which one suits your playstyle the best.

wait what? why not? if you have a new HDD then all you need to do is re download them via your download history.

if its a new xbox then you can do a license transfer and get the DLC that way.

anyways to answer your question.

Maya is great for coop in a support role and definitely very survivable solo (literally the best for dealing with rabid stalkers solo)

Axton is a very powerful char set up right and again is good in a coop support role.

Zero is very fragile but capable of extreme damage output later on. be prepared for a bit of a slog early on though

Sal (only have a lvl 6 sal so not much to say here) a bit squishy at the start but looking at his skills that doesn't last too long.

not later on maybe but up until maybe 15 or 20 hes squishy.

he does have a massively different playstyle which i haven't adjusted to yet.

impossible question for us to answer for you. the whole reason there are multiple characters is so that there is something to appeal to every taste. they all have their merits, and they are all fun.

just try one of them out for a few levels. if it seems like the one for you stick with it. if not try another one

also, curious why you cannot just re download gaige and kreig
Crazy? Crazy with low prices on Wind Brahmin. You buy one!!
