A highly aggressive shield damage centric build that can clear the hardest of content while also having your pick of allies or enemies doing the work for you.
Augments: Rakkcelerate and Flock n Load.
Skill Flexibility: Can reallocate points from Ambush Predator and Grim Harvest into Leave No Trace and even potentially Two F4ng if you’d like to use guns more. (Particularly useful for OPQ drone spam). If you’d prefer having healthgate instead of using a urad setup, you can use this skill tree and follow the alternate gear suggestions.
Playstyle: This build is an omnibus of options for non-gun damage. The Messy Breakup approach allows you to spam a combination of Hunter-Seekers, Rakks, and shield drones to kill enemies from a distance. The reflect shield approach allows for the same but with more powerful Spark Plugs due to the additional bonus element, at the cost of less damage along line of sight. The Void Rift approach allows for a highly aggressive playstyle of planting Spark Plugs and pulling enemies into them before hitting them with novas.
More Than Okay Boomer mayhem modifier is used to sustain grenade supply when not on Mayhem 11.
Dominance, if specced, will nearly always be active in this setup, providing incidental survivability via aggro relief.
As with other setups using the Messy Breakup, certain area changes/teleports/altitude changes will disable the shield. Unequipping and reequipping fixes this. The Beskar, and possibly other shields, can also have this problem.
(All with urad a.k.a. 100% bonus radiation damage under 50% HP OR Next 2 mags bonus elements if running alternate skill setup)
Mitosis Hunter-Seeker: This grenade fires bullets that not only have a very high base damage, but they can crit, receive bonus elements that can crit, and seek out enemies. This means that not only is it a powerful damage option in its own right, it triggers Head Count a large number of times therefore enabling more Rakk Attack spam, which is not only a large amount of damage but facilitates any of the above Action Skill Start shield strategies. Recommended anoint is your choice of ASE 50% bonus element.
