Your favorite skill tree to compliment a sniping Zer0?

#1Tube_of_NoobPosted 7/8/2014 8:47:43 AM
Hoping to hear what some of you guys thought. I always get great knowledge from here.

Right now I'm a lvl 54 Zer0 and am about to unlock Kunai in the cunning tree. I am not real sure if the Kunai are that good, because the rest of the tree hasn't been that great. But I could be missing something. It seems that maybe I should respec to the melee tree. I have a lvl 48 Rapier too.

Just was wondering if anyone had any introspect on which compliments better with sniping.

Oh lord no, stay in Cunning.

Fast Hands is awesome. Reload speed is always great, especially for those lower clip size snipers.

Ambush compliments sniping wonderfully, with it's added damage on your first shot when exiting deception.

Rising Shot is one of Zeros best skills... adds a ton of damage when you're laying down continuous rounds.

Innervate is nice for health regen every time you activate deception.

And Kunai is awesome. Death Mark can be applied to an enemy by hitting them with Kunai, so you don't have to melee them to get that +20% damage from Death Mark.

So, here's basically what Cunning gives you for one enemy...
> activate deception
> throw Kunai- +20% damage to enemy by applying Death Mark, plus damage directly done by Kunai.(it can also slag enemy)
> First shot gets another 20% damage from Ambush.
> Innervate also adds damage to that first shot.
> Continuous shots get stronger with Rising Shot. +50% damage on the 5th shot, and every one after.

As you can see, Cunning is a wonderful tree to compliment sniping.
Spiral out...

I got nothing to add to this, except:
Take Jambi's advice. :)

Didn't realize that kunai added a deathmark.

I am only lv41 and the kunai even kill some enemies for me. Take Jambis advice. It worked for me

Even better, if you hit with multiple kunai you can get up to an 80% increase in damage from Deathmark instead of the usual 20%.

Even in UVHM you can kill enemies, or hurt them pretty badly if you land most of them and they hit with the right elements.
