Crit Build


Author: HolyApplebutter


The Headhunter


Author: Gaven

The gameplay on this build focuses on landing headshots (weak points damages) and staying at a reasonnable range to get the effects of your armor and amulet.

Assault Rifle : It's your main weapon to clean trash mobs and hit alot. With Hunter's Mark and SoW on, you'll hit really hard on mobs, insane damages if you hit the head. With the accuracy of the weapon and your traits, it becomes a great weapon capable to clean mobs at a pretty good range.

Hunting Pistol : This is your BOSS / Elite DPS weapon. Again you'll want to have both mods on. Aim for the weak spot and enjoy some insane damages and shred those boss.


  • Long Gun: Assault Rifle
  • Hand Gun: Hunting Pistol
  • Melee Weapon: Voice of the Tempest (Anything fits)
  • Weapon Mod 1: Hunter's Mark
  • Weapon Mod 2: Song of Swords
  • Armor: Hunter Set
  • Amulet: Gunslinger's Charm
  • Ring: Braided Thorns or Devouring Loop
  • Ring: Hunter's Band

High DPS + Mobbing


Author: HumtY (May 2020)

Gameplay: You want to dodge roll as minimum as possible as the armour is either medium or heavy encumbered. That said, with swiftness maxxed out, you can practically just run around dodging every shot. If you think it's too heavy for your style, you can replace the chest piece with the slayer set chest piece. Ricochet rifle works wonders with mobbing while also getting some bosses. Devastator on the whole just works for any situation. It applies bleeding and shoots 5 arrows. With the devouring loop or empowering loop, the weapon just melts everything in front of it. Be sure to aim down enemy weakspots for maximum damage.


Immortal Summoner


Author: EvilAngel

With this build you will struggle to die with permanent Skulls killing everything around you and healing you insane amounts while you chill in the back. The Seeker mod deals excellent damage and will charge fast with the Cultist set and high fire rate weapons. Enjoy Face-Tanking the game :)


Critical Hit + One Shot


Author : MisterVale (Inspired by SlyGumbi)

 Almost 700 Dmg without critical hit, almost 1500 Dmg on critical hit. Up to 5000 Dmg when hitting weak spot + critical hit. According to "SlyGumbi", this build works in nightmare mode.


Bottomless stock


Author: Errmsty



Crit Auto Build (No DLC needed)


A Crit Build with auto weapons for endgame without the need of DLCs

Author: yRaven



Easy Mode


This is a DOT reliant crit build that is meant for boss melting that benefits from using crit chance/damage and fire rate/reload consumables. First, hit the boss with fan of knives to activate polished whetstone, then switch to beam rifle and use swarm. STAND STILL to activate Mantis ring and unload your beam rifle. Once Swarm is over, reload beam rifle and switch back to machine pistol then repeat. While this build relies on DOT bleed damage for its full potential, it is still plenty powerful and practical for general mob clearing without changing a thing.

            Warlord's passive let you consume Hearts infinitely. Elder's passive gives buffs to your summons after consuming hearts. Cultist gives you passive regen of mod and +mod duration. Lastly Twisted The passive doesn't stack with summons (AFAIK) but the health regen can also help negate the life drain from warlord. So you can spam Hearts to buff your summons while your summons are lifestealing for you.

            Long Gun : Any
            Hand Gun: Any
            Melee : I prefer Guardian Axe but any will do
            Mod 1 : Iron Sentinel
            Mod 2 : Beckon
            Armor : 1 Warlord , 1 Elder , 1 Cultist or twisted
            Amulet : Stalker's band
            Ring 1 : Soul Link
            Ring 2 : Band of discord

            Traits :
            Glutton (Optional)
            Arcane Strike
            Catalyst (If you're using elemntal weps)

                  Build: Regenerating Healer Tank (no DLC)

                  Easy to play, versatile and stress free Build. Ideal for a beginner.
                  Allows you to have permanent and massive HP regeneration but also to increase all healings received by 165%.
                  Bonus: Dragons Hearts heal allies!

                  - Armor: Twisted Set (HP regen +1.002 HP/s)
                  - Ring: Ezlan's Band (HP regen +0.238 HP/s, HP max +25)
                  - Ring: Blood Font (HP regen +0.334 HP/s, Healing Effectiveness +15%)
                  - Amulet: Mender's Charm (Healing Effectiveness +50%)
                  - Weapons and Mods: Yes, it can be useful! ;)

                  Traits (in order of priority)
                  - Elder Knowledge (Experience +20%)
                  - Vigor (Health by +50)
                  - Triage (Healing Effectiveness +100%)
                  - Bark Skin (Armor +15%)
                  - Keeper's Blessing (Elemental Resistance +10)
                  - Guardian's Blessing (Melee damage reduction +10%)
                  - Mother's Blessing (Ranged damage reduction +10%)
                  - What you want...

                  If Elder Knowledge is at the top, it's because you get it from the start of the game and it pays for itself very quickly.
                  You are free in the choice of weapons and Mods. Personally, I like to play with Devastator and Magnum (Iron Sentinel mod), but it works whatever your choice.

                    My Face Is Tough (DLC)
                    There is no something new, i just provide some minor changes which make life more comfortable.
                    Great toughness and life-leech all the time. Main story + DLC Apocalypse

                    Armor: Leto's Armor set
                    Long Gun: "Ricochet Gun" (with this you can save 2d mod space to anything else, Devastator is not panacea)
                    Hand Gun: "Machine Pistol" (the best combination of damage, accuracy and range)
                    Mod1: "Fan of Knives"
                    Mod2: anything what do you want (i use "Swarm" to more dps)
                    Melee: anything what do you want

                    Amulet: "Razorwire Necklace"
                    Ring1: "Alchemist Jewel"
                    Ring2: "Bloodletter's Insignia"

                    Core traits: "Spirit", "Catalyst", "Tormentor", "Triage", and ofc any survivalistic traits are also welcome, than more than better.

                    Conclusions and tips:
                    1. The main feature of the build is unity of toughness of "Leto's Armor"+"Alchemist Jewel" and OP life-leech of "Razor Wire Necklace"+"Triage". Just use "Fan of Knives" as often as you can and it's help to over-heal most of attacks in one moment.
                    2. "Ricochet gun" give us lot of power and you will using Fan of Knives much often than with Devastator. The second profit of Ricochet is enemy's action interruption, and this is very important. The third is auto-aim, you can shoot to any surface in front of enemy and you never miss(and get your power)
                    3. "Nightmare" and "Apocalypse". Im lazy ass and i don't want to learn boss rotation or dodge hits any time, i use Consumables and i can catch strikes with my face: "Mudtooth's" Tonic(+25HP for HOUR), "Pristine Essence"(+15% to all resists and reduce status effect build up Last 3 min), any +30% target element resist(Hydro Coolant, Oilskin Tonic, HeavyWater Elixir, GreenLeaf, Ethernal Orb, Spiceroot). In total you get 65% of resist. Damnt it, use consumables its awesome. Better than fall down like your teammates.
                    4. You can save dragon shards to revive your unlucky teammates.

                          best setup is all letos armour maxed out, devouring loop, bark skin, twisted idol, that new ring that adds 30 percent armour effectivness, This pushes your armour to over 1000+ and you never die, with devouring loop best weapon is fusion rifle, or for starters use beam rifle and get tons of crits while being a tank at same time. I can play solo on hard and nightmare and never die anymore. Setup is overkill on Normal where u can blast a few bosses dead before they even reach you.

                            Now just go, and punch everything to dust...

                              Idk who will see this and it might be known, but after a while of trial and error i found out a pretty op (imo) build.
                              All Labyrinth armor
                              Machine Pistol - Unstable Quills
                              Particle Accelerator
                              (any melee i run smolder or butchers flail)
                              Necklace - Vulcans Detonator
                              Rings - Spirit Stone / Gift of the Iskal
                              Minds Eye
                              Quick Hands
                              Trigger happy

                              I'm sure there is other stuff that would work well with this, but i am still in the process of grinding out gear, but this build makes use of the mod damage and explosive damage. The highest damage i hit was a crit with the Particle's mod that dealt around 12k-13k. Hope this helps someone or someone can improve on it. Thanks!

                                It's an old build. You need to realize things change or get nerfed. Storm amulet used to gice 15% damage to all weapons or elements or added shock damage to non shock weapons and give 15% shock damage. I forget. But I do know it made sense in builds then.

                                  Wth is the Melting Pot Build? Storm Amulet without a single shock weapon/mod? How is that supposed to work?

                                    Build: Bloodletter

                                    A solo bleed build that can synergize with any comp and has excellent sustain

                                    Handgun: Any with open slot or Hive Cannon
                                    Long Gun: Devestator
                                    Melee: Scar of the Jungle God
                                    Other Mods: Fan of Knives(DLC)
                                    Armor: Any + 1 piece of cultist(personal preference)
                                    Amulet: Razorwire Necklace(DLC)
                                    Rings: Bloodletters Insignia(DLC), Blood Font

                                    Traits: Tormentor, Triage, Quick Hands, personal preference

                                    Keeping bleed stacked on enemies lets you passively restore health and adding corrosion from the Hive Cannon makes the bleed do more damage, restoring more health. The trick is to proc the 3 stacks of bleed with Skewer mod and refre***** with a charged melee from the Scar.

                                          Build : Murder Mod

                                          Powerful Mod damage, heals ultra fast, able to spam devastating mods, melts bosses, solid weapon damage, honestly overkill if you aren't playing on nightmare or apocalyptic.

                                          LongGun - Crossbow or Sniper Rifle
                                          Handgun - Sawed Off
                                          Melee - Any, though Worlds Edge or Hero's Sword can help for hordes
                                          Mod 1 - Fan of Knives
                                          Mod 2 - Swarm or Breath of the Desert
                                          Armor - Labyrinth
                                          Amulet - Razor Wire
                                          Ring 1 - Bloodletter
                                          Ring 2 - Burden of the Follower

                                          Crossbow or Sniper make up for your low crit chance and will kill trash with a single crit or headshot, you will generate enough mod power to ca fan of knives every 3 shots, (2 if the enemy is bleeding). You can also recast Swarm after 4-6 shots with the sawed off. Swarm takes care of hordes and melts bosses, fan of knives does 4500 bleed damage over its duration and provides extremely fast healing and survivability. The build is quite enjoyable and doesn't rely on the devastator like so many of the other builds. It trivializes most content with its high damage and sustain, with the only real threat being one shot kill moves or super combos on nightmare or apocalyptic.

                                          Traits - All ranged damage traits except Rapid Fire, all mod damage/duration/generation traits, Swiftness, Vigor, Endurance
