Borderlands 2 Character Builds


So, waiting for something much more exciting to happen, but until then, I thought I'd come up with BL2 characters, approximating their Supers! stats at level 5.

Image

Axton, Commando Vault Hunter:
Resistances
Composure 2D
Fortitude 3D
Reaction 2D
Will 2D

Aptitudes:
Shooting 4D (Assault Rifles, Split Attack 1D)
Technology 3D
Vehicles 2D

Powers:
Armor 4D [Energy Shield] ([c]Device)
Summon 7D [Sabre Turret] ([c]Device, [c]Immobile, [c]Only summons Sabre Turret*)
Super Senses 2D [Head's Up Display] ([c]Device; Radar and Direction Sense 2D)

* Sabre Turret:
C 1D, F 2D, R 2D, W 1D
Shooting 4D (Burst Fire, Split Attack 1D)

Notes:
Axton isn't a hard hitter early on, but what he lacks in punch and accuracy, he makes up for in volume of fire! Once his Sabre Turret is deployed, Axton will allow it to soften up a target before he tries to finish it off with his own barrage of rifle fire.

In a Supers! game, Axton could very easily be a hi-tech merc out searching for fortune and fame.

Re: Borderlands 2 Character Builds


Fyi these are all 20D builds. So next up...
Image

Zero, Vault Hunter Assassin!:
Resistances
Composure 2D
Fortitude 1D
Reaction 4D
Will 2D

Aptitudes
Athleticism 2D
Fighting 2D
Intrusion 2D
Shooting 3D

Powers
Armor 4D [Energy Shield] ([c]Device)
Illusion 5D* [Deception Power] ([c]Device, [c]Only single illusion of himself)
Super Weaponry 6D [Glowing Blue Sword of Awesomeness] ([c]Device, [c]Touch Attack Only)

*Zero's Deception Power
I would allow Zero to attack with his Illusion power since it is his way of setting up sneak attacks. While the damage is caused by some other instrument of hurting, it's the fact that opponents are focused on the illusion that allows him to get the attack in.

In a Supers! game Zero could be a hi-tech hitman who uses his Deception Power to lure targets into traps, or at least isolates them so he can take them on one-on-one.

If someone wanted focus on Zero's sniping ability, they could substitute Invisibility for Illusion and change the Sword to a Sniper Rifle, though it would be at 5D not 6D.

Wow dude. You must write this, ahem, "genre emulation!"

Have you been playing it?

Re: Borderlands 2 Character Builds


I'd love to one day, once the new Supers! book is out so everything's in line with any revisions that may happen.

I got in a few hours of playing Axton (Lvl 12) before I returned the game (rented it). Once we get out of the hospital with our baby boy (which is where I am right now, sans baby), I'll probably buy it and abuse it during the two weeks I have off work emoticon

Image

Maya, Siren Vault Hunter
Resistances
Composure 2d
Fortitude 1d
Reaction 3d
Will 3d

Aptitude
Occultism 4d (Sirens)
Presence 3d
Shooting 3d

Powers
Armor 4d [Energy Shield] ([c]Device)
Paralysis 5d [Phaselock]

Pretty straightforward build; Maya is the face of the Vault Hunters and combines a solid conventional attack in her Shooting skill as well two non-standard attacks in her Phaselock power and her Presence aptitude.

Re: Borderlands 2 Character Builds


And finally...
Image
Salvador, Gunzerking Vault Hunter
Resistances
Composure 2d
Fortitude 4d
Reaction 1d
Will 2d

Aptitudes
Fighting 2d
Presence 4d (Taunting)
Streetwise 2d

Powers
Armor 4d [Energy Shield] ([c]Device)
Special Weaponry 6d [Gunzerking] ([c]Requires two or more guns; Area of Effect 1d)
Regeneration 2d ([c]Only while Gunzerking)

Salvador is built to do damage to lots of people but he has one trick up his sleave, a Composure attack using his Taunting ability! When in battle, Salvador regenerates damage at a good rate, but he loses the ability when not slaughtering his enemies therefore any damage he still has when the fight ends sticks, and damage taken outside of combat (ie traps, weather, accidents) doesn't regenerate either.

Regarding his powers and aptitudes, Gunzerking could very well have been the shooting aptitude but I didn't feel that it reflected the damage potential of the character. Taunting could be the Mind Blast power rather than the Presence aptitude if you want to limit his ability to only taunting, but come on, he's a lovable guy, right? So presence it is! emoticon

We should send a note to gearbox and see if they want a desktop version. How would you represent all the different loot and guns in the world?

Regards
Walt...

Oh and any baby news yet?

Re: Borderlands 2 Character Builds


I'd be scared to see what they would want for a license considering how wildly successful the franchise is.

Besides, unless you'd want to consider a wildly more complicated system, specifically the loot/weapon aspect, I don't see Supers! handling the crunch of the game that most people would expect. It could be something to kick around at some point though, I'd be game to explore it.

As to the kid, he's taking his sweet time joining us, gonna be a long night! Thanks for asking.

Next up, bullymongs!

This might be the official unofficial Borderlands 2 thread.

I wonder what comes first... mini-dustland or bullymongs

Hope all is well.
