almost done with my zer0 and my maya and sal are at 50 (no i dont powerlevel)
So these are the two i have left. I tried them out a bit, and i'm having a ton of fun with gaige's anarchy perk, axton is meh so far but i think he's more fun and effective when his turret is upgraded.
Either or, both are fun characters and can be fun without their "pet' (Yes Axton can still be good without a turret.) and if anything, I'd say just flip a coin on it or something, you'll have fun with both. :P
I find the turrets a better means of taking the heat of when things get hectic, especially with longbow & maglock. With DT the effect isn't as instantaneous. Not so important at 1st but it has saved me numerous times in TVHM. The mag size & AR skills make explosive rifles real brutes too. DT is a beast though & he tears through racks & stalkers like nothing else.
--- I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.
The turret is very useful from the start, but gaige is much much more fun. Also, depending on the skills you pick, DT can be just as, if not more helpful than the turret. Plus, there's a FIFTY percent chance bullets can BOUNCE BACK AND HIT SOMEONE ELSE AT LEVEL 10.
so worth it.
Stand by your friends, wrong or right, can't call that justice, if it's just a stupid excuse to fight single out and attack, when they've got no defense.
tricky gaige if you want toget into summoning as a mechanic, since hers is easier (doesnt require strategic placement)
basically, a good axton turret build will usually sit back at mid-long range, deploy turrets, and have a continuous stream of heavy fire doucheing people
gaige is more likely to charge alongside her dt
if you DONT want an action sill specific build, both are still crazy powerful axton has insane shields, reload, health regen, and great boosts for assault rifles, allowing him to be the team leader and cove based shoot his way to victory
gaige....BFF first skill workswell with the anarchy tree about not reloading, since you can spray wildly andstill hopefull hit the guy
