The gist of the build is based off using your Rifle and your Tool Belt. This build works extremely well out in the open where you can use your extended Rifle and Grenade range to your benefit. The burst of this build comes from utilizing Power, Precision and Critical Damage stats. Ever usage of your Tool Belt sets off a Static Discharge which, fully geared, hits for 1,800 damage. Using Rifle Turrent’s “Surprise Shot”, Tool Kit’s Wrench and Grenades you can get a pretty high amount of burst.
If you’re not yet 80, or just recently leveled, don’t be discourage about the numbers just yet. You’ll need to properly get the stats needed for this to work.
The Build: 30 Exsplosives, 20 Firearms, 20 Tools
One of the biggest complaints with Grenades is that it’s incredibly difficult to actually hit a player due to their slow travel rate. Using the Rifle’s Net Shot, you’ll see the author of the video using the Net Shot in conjunction with grenades with some devastating results.
