Borderlands 2: Best Gunzerker Skill Build

Borderlands 2 - Best Gunzerker Build


The Gunzerker class is awesome. There's no question about it.

Salvador kills his enemies fast and serves them a nice side of pwn'age while doing so with his dual wielding guns.

Gunzerker is the best at crowd control, has a very high damage per second (dps), is capable of tanking (with a tank build), and is one of the most fun classes in Borderlands 2.

The build I'm posting is an amazing Gunzerker solo build (I think it's the Best Salvador Build). It's pretty much a Rampage Build that's hybrid with a Brawn Build. This does not have any of a Gunlust Build though -- as we don't even touch that tree -- but that doesn't mean you can't shift some skill points around. Keep in mind that with more downloadable content (DLC) being released, even more skill points will be obtainable. And once you gain those extra skill points and / or an increased level cap, then you can expand to other skills in trees.

As per usual, if you have any builds you think are better, then please comment below!

So that's the Best Gunzerker Build! Salvador the Gunzerker is a fun character class who is pretty much the playable Brick of the Borderlands 2 (he's silly and so forth).

While this is a great soloing build, it should be mentioned that it works even better in a duo situation or with larger parties since that keeps the enemies more spread out and less focused on just your character. This means you can focus less on tanking skills and more on high damage skills. This is even more true if you have a nice Gunzerker Class Mod that can help fill in some extra skill points for you.

What's great about the Gunzerker is that once you get some really great weapons (perhaps legendary or great epic weapons), then you can put one in each hand and do a ridiculous amount of damage. And each gun can be a different elemental too, which is always cool.

If you have any better builds that you consider to be the best Salvador Build or simply the strongest Gunzerker Build, then please comment below!

    Yippee Ki Yay is only up to four, how did you get Get Some?

  • By UpwardGaming, January 4, 2013 @ 2:19 am

    Hi there! In the previous tier, I used 6 points -- 5 in I'm Ready Already and 1 in Steady as She Goes. That made it meet the requirement so that Yippee Ki Yay only needed 4 pts total to reach the 25 pt requirement of getting to the next tier. Hope that made sense!
