- Title update: 10
- Specialisation: Gunner
This build focuses heavily around building as much of a momentum as you can, the two talents which are essential for this are Obliterate and Unstoppable Force, the reason I chose these is that there are no debuffs for using them unlike glass cannon for example while providing you with a large damage bonus.
About the build
Lady Death, Coyotes mask, 1x Sokolov Concern, 1x Grupo Sombra S.A. and 1x Providence Defense.
The 2 remaining slots can be either Sokolov Concern or Providence Defense as they have the same brand bonuses, your secondary weapon should be something accurate for taking out snipers you can’t reach, I prefer the Railsplitter assault rifle as it has pinpoint accuracy and a high fire rate.
Lady Death: when moving, gain 4 stacks per second, or 8 stacks if sprinting, up to 32 stacks in total. Each round consumes a stack, amplifying damage by 75%. Kills grant +20% movement speed for 10s.
You will have Crit damage and headshot damage on all pieces, on either your backpack or chest you will take off headshot damage and replace it with Crit chance so you can hit the 60% cap, All your mods will be for Crit damage.
Obliterate: Critical hits increase total weapon damage by 1% for 5s, up to a cap of 15%.
Unstoppable Force: Killing an enemy increases weapon damage by 5% for 15s, up to a cap of 25%.
Alternatively you can use glass cannon on your chest but it would lower your chances of survival when face tanking groups of npc’s.
Glass Cannon: All damage you deal is amplified by 25%, all damage you take is amplified by 50%.
The reason for using the Gunner specialization is because of these 4 talents.
Coupler: Every third reload is 50% faster.
Incessant: Killing enemies grants 10% armour.
Barrage: Rate of fire is increased by 5% on kill for 5s.
Supply Line: Generate 10% of total ammo capacity every 60s.
Your first skill will be the Crusader Ballistic Shield as it will allow you to use your lady death and provide you with a bit more armour briefly, a side bonus from this is also you can equip the Liquid metal Microdroplets mod onto it, which will give you a damage bonus depending on the amount of enemies in front of you.
Your second skill wont really mater as you would be wasting time deploying skills, I’d suggest a revive hive just if you go down.
How to use the build
The most effective way to use this build is to be constantly moving to generate stacks for the lady death, getting in close and using the shield when you need a bit more of a armour boost to face tank npc’s. Should you need to get into cover if your shield breaks, it’s best you shuffle left and right as that will still allow you to build lady death stacks in cover.
You will always try to aim for headshots when possible, and hitting weakpoints as well depending on the faction you are fighting picking off snipers with your secondary.
Below you will see my current stats for this build, bare in mind I am missing 20% headshot damage from keeners watch and just minor roll increases on each item. These are the stats you will roughly have once the build is complete.
