This build plays aggressively and in the face of the NPC’s, who you hit very hard (an average of 83K per bullet vs elites, the same as an AR based 8K firearms Striker with 40% DtE and 70% EAD with ~45 stacks built up). At 122K skill power the shield has ~780K health which I’ve found is enough for up to Challenging PvE, it only breaks if I’ve done something stupid. Keep your shield and any environmental objects between yourself and the NPC’s. Using the environment smartly can allow your shield to regen its health. You can also use a medkit to restore its health and yours if you’re in a bad situation. Nomad gives you some HoK which is enough to keep you alive and not need a healing skill. If Recovery Link goes off, swap to the secondary (sprint for a moment and swap in that moment, end the sprint) to get it back quickly with Determined then swap back. Use Booster shot for a DPS boost against heavies or bosses.
i have almost all classified and this is my first set and its help me alot through thank you man.
@bubbs1012 No problem. Good luck vs RNG.
Gotcha, I need to get better gloves while the Global Event is still active and change my gun mods up. Thx for the answer!
@bubbs1012; MP5 base damage is 19,071. With Precision active you’ve got a 50.5% CHC and 124% CHD. That’s a multiplier of 1.63. AWD has 12% on glove (SMG is this type) and 26% from the shield and mods. This is another multiplier of 1.38. DtE is maxed to 58% for another 1.58. EAD is at 21% for 1.21. Then 10% from Responsive, 1.1. 19071 x 1.63 x 1.38 x 1.58 x 1.21 x 1.1 = 90,2104 on average. This weights critical hits with non critical hits. Half your shots don’t have a 2.24 multiplier (not critical) the other half do (critical).
How are you getting 83k per bullet? I've got an identical weapon, with 3 classy D3 pieces, 2 classy Predator pieces (for SMG damage boost and reload boost), and a Ninja pack, all with the same attributes or better, and I'm maxing out at 33k per bullet per Elite.
No. D3’s 4 piece bonus allows you to use an SMG while the shield is deployed instead of the sidearm. You’d lose the power of the set running two LMG’s. You could replace one of SMG’s for one LMG. Then you’d have the power of the set with the shield deployed an a weapon for taking cover with that hits better at range than an SMG.
Could I switch the two SMG’s for two LMG’s. I have two Great rolled exotic LMG’s that I have been waiting to put on a build untouched and thought that if possible, it could go to good use on this.
