The Best Borderlands 2 Builds: Salvador The Gunzerker
- Categorized in: Strategy Guides
So, you want to build a better Vault Hunter in Borderlands 2, eh? The first lesson you'll have to learn is to pick a focus, and stick to it. Crafting a deadly character takes focus, and although each character can be specced in many different ways, there are definitely certain "right" ways to do it. So put on your min/maxing shoes and come join us in a comprehensive list of the best ways to spec your Borderlands 2 characters.
Salvador is one of Borderlands 2's new characters. As such, many players were not sure what to expect when selecting him from the title menu. As it happens, Salvador is a highly-customizeable character, and although his highly-aggressive Gunzerkering skill is far from the cream of the crop, it can eventually be updated or even ignored outright to mold Salvador into exactly the type of Gunzerker you want him to be.
Salvador is perhaps most suited to playing the role of the Tank, but in the beginning hours of the game his health will be far too flimsy to withstand the demands of this role. The very first thing you should do with Salvador if your aim is to Tank is to upgrade the Hard to Kill Skill to the max. Then invest in the following skills:
- Hard to Kill
- I'm The Juggernaut
- Ain't Got Time To Bleed
- Filled To The Brim
- Out of Bubblegum
- Bus That Can't Slow Down
- Come At Me Bro
- Sexual Tyrannosaurus
Basically, you'll want to fill up your Brawn tree while spending any spare points in the Rampage tree.
If you want your primary focus to be on Gunzerkering, there are a few supplemental skills that are absolutely essential. You'll want to ensure that you have maximum ammo, health regeneration and stat buffs while Gunzerkering, so be sure to pick up the following skills somewhere along the line:
- Divergent Likeness
- Money Shot
- Down But Not Out
- Keep It Piping Hot
- No Kill Like Overkill
- Last Longer
- I'm Ready Already
- Steady As She Goes
- Yippee Ki Yay
- Double Your Fun
- Get Some
- Keep Firing
This loadout means all but ignoring the Brawn tree, giving you huge bonuses while you are Gunzerkering but making you vulnerable and a poor choice for Tanking. This loadout is better suited to single player gameplay than multiplayer, but it can certainly work in either mode.
