Well, the maximum level has increased again in Borderlands 3, and once again, players discover that they have to redo the equipment, or try to get new drops who arrived with the Bounty of Blood DLC.
It usually means cultivating a lot of bosses, the best source of drops in the game, and there is a character and a construction that I would say is the best farmer in the game right now. It would, of course, be FL4K, which is back to its boss by killing means thanks to changes to Mayhem 10 and a hell of a new sniper. This can kill Graveward in one clip and Traunt in about three shots, and I haven’t seen anything that matches yet.
Here is my FL4K sniper version, you can shoot for once you’ve reached level 60.
Green tree (above)
This is the main Fade Away tree, the action skill you will use for this construction, which should not surprise anyone. Ignore all health and regeneration skills, focus on damage and rate of fire. I have the pet resurrected just in case something goes wrong (I kill myself with sniper rebound damage sometimes). A key thing to note here is that you are not using Guerillas in the Mist as an augmentation. Know that you are using a sniper, you are better off with three hits at higher critical damage than the reduced damage you get from Guerillas. Unblinking Eye is always a must.
No blue tree here. All the critical stuff plus the reduction of action skills. I wonder if Ambush Predator is better to put five points rather than Grim Harvest. The two seem somewhat similar, and depending on the boss, you may not get the Ambush bonus, but you will still get Grim.
It would be Complex Root, a new DLC sniper who falls anywhere in the new map, and is by far the best DLC pistol, which I described in an article yesterday. There are several good rollers here for FL4K, the best could be 50/150% radiation damage, which would require you to get your health below 50% with a front loader, but I don’t mind my 125 % boss damage after action skill one, as it does very well. 100% elemental damage after the action skill is also good, or 200% damage during the active action skill that you can use with Fade Away. There are many options here and few bad choices.
Bounty Hunter gives you a bunch of bonuses when fighting bosses, so it’s a must for this release, in my opinion. Need one with sniper damage for sure, because now level 60 versions give 37% more weapon damage. Not that I really need it, but it also gives me something like a 50% reduction in damage against bosses. I need one with a better distribution of benefits, but it’s good for now.
Any shield you like with basic skill damage after action. I still like rechargers. If you have a complex root of 50/150 radiation, you will need a front loader.
Again, any grenade you want with after-action skill elemental damage. You won’t actually launch them, but between that and your shield, it’s 100% additional elemental damage at the end of Fade Away.
I literally use this artifact only for sniper damage and cooldown action skills. I guess radiation could help because I have a complex root of radiation, but it’s minimal. I don’t know what other artifact with real skills would benefit this construction, but open to suggestions.
Activate Fade Away, shoot the boss. If the boss lives, keep shooting, activate all after the action skill buffs, the boss dies. I haven’t seen a boss with no immunity phases that survives more than one clip of this in TVHM Mayhem 10. Have fun.
