It is a simple rotation and one of the highest if not the highest dps build inn the game. Note: For this build to be effective you want to focus your offstats on PENETRATION RATING.

The basic roation of this build is to build up 5 combo points and use your consumers. If you have ok gear you should do around 1.6k – 2.3k + inn nightmares etc. Your Builder does slow you down so you need to carefull with it from time to time, but because its such a easy rotation you can pay attention to the fight all the time and focus on staying alive, instead of focusing on your rotation.


SAFTY OFF (Burst) – The reason you want to use this builder is, because it is the highest dps builder inn the game with the passive extra bullet, and add to that 4 hits for more livewire procs.

THREE ROUND BURST (Burst) – The reason you want to use this consumer is basicly because its the consumer with highest singel target dps for Assult Rifle.

OUT FOR A KILL – Highest damage consumer from Shotgun.
