Im addicted to BL2 and currently have a level 26 gunzerker. Had a 48 commando but deleted him. How is Krieg? I heard commando is the worst class.
So... you really deleted him? I'll answer your question in a bit. But first, I think you may have made a mistake. You could always respec your guys, try new gear, dlc's... ect. The possibilities are endless. You could always come back to the characters you're bored of later.
Now to your question... I love Krieg. I love how different he is from the other Vault Hunters. Though he took some getting used to, once I had gotten a feel for how I like to play him couldn't stop until I hit 50. I look forward to maxing him in the near future.
But how does he compare to the other classes? I've never been to a raid boss, but Im assuming they are tough?
There is no "best" class, it really depends on personal prefference and playstyle. Krieg is exceptional at melee and mobbing alot of opponents at the same time. I find him tons of fun but he's not the best at raidbosses (atleast solo).
You can play him melee in different ways, but I find that he's also pretty damn good with guns given the right build.
LV61 Krieg bloolust/mania with a dazed crunch mod and hide of terra is what I use. And he's pretty much unkillable, even when I go FFL I can get back up quickly thanks to Light the Fuse. Then that damage goes into bloodsplosion so anyone who was near the guy I got second wind on goes down too.
tl;dr get Kreig he's cray.
ps you're going to really hate P1 with Kreig, just wait it out and once you get Release the beast all wil be well.
