This poll is now closed.
My first poll ever, sorry for any mistakes... Honestly, I'd give him a perfect 10. He's got such interesting, agressive playstyles... He's also not a terrible co-op support either. Nothing quite like smacking a single enemy and triggering a Bloodsplosion fireworks show that clears everything in a 50ft radius.
XBL GT: ShAd0wF1AmE (that's a zero in ShAd0w, not an O)
I'd say he's my least favorite char so far actually.
I play all my chars from scratch without transfering eq etc, and the only thing Krieg really had going for him was a higher difficulty level for the initial 2 play throughs (game is cake with the other hunters really...but a bit more difficult as Krieg from scratch).
I admit, that is nice, having some difficulty as you go through the game on normal again as apposed to how it was with gaige....but.....I still don't really like his powers over all. I don't regret buying him, but at the same time.....I wouldn't miss not having him much either.
I will reserve final judgement for when I am 61 with UVHM done but getting to 50 with a Kreig grenade spamming build was probably the most fun I have had in this game. I think in UVHM I will start incorporating the Firehawk and see where that gets me.
Overall he is top 2 for me and definitely worth buying.
