DeathTrap is useless against end game bosses

#1velvet_hammerPosted 10/9/2012 7:49:53 PM
Verm, Terra, Warrior, Bunker, DT is a complete waste.. in some builds waste of 25+ skill points.. All he does is sit there waiting to use buck up, he refuses to do anything else, even his other attacks I got him.. Bosses act like hes invisible, he does NOT draw aggro anything like the turret.. I have yet to have terra attack him, and only once seen him attack tera himself.. Extremely disappointing

Not trying to be a debby downer but theres something seriously wrong with his AI coding against end game bosses..

you can use it to distract other enemies during boss fights.

while you focus your firepower on the boss

well mate, i don't know why you are having such trouble, but my DeathTrap is putting the beatdown on Terra and The Warrior everytime i go to fight them, and with how much health he has, he can take quite a few hits, so far as i've counted he has taken 5 straight smacks from Terra before dying, and so far he has yet to die before i killed The Warrior.

i will put up my build shortly im not sure if that has anything to do with it but still :D.

Hope you get it figured out mate, Gaige is a GREAT character so far, i love her!

having an action skill and half my skill points useless against end game is pathetic game balance and probably unintentional

Perhaps different builds give him different A.I.?
I mean it changes his looks depending on what skills he gets, maybe it changes how he reacts to specific enemies and how enemies react to him.

Could try to respec and try a different build, I know its unlikely, but its all I can think of.
I know its not the best solution, but still...

Just did the Wilhelm fight and DeathTrap didn't do anything, didn't attack or even draw aggro.

Going by some of the conflicting answers here and from gearbox forums I'm hoping it's just more of DT sometimes glitching out/not understanding how DeathTrap A.I. works instead of being a permanent, intended feature.
