Been visiting the forums for a while now, but no one ever seems to talk about the builds of their characters, only the game itself. While this is surely useful for the Dev's, I feel some discussions around builds as they stand currently will help out when it comes to balancing.
For myself I have been running a crusader and my current build feels overpowered.
Assault armour, dual plasma pistols and the skills I have picked mean I am almost invincible. Almost feels like I'm cheating most of the time.
Skills are put into most of Single target, most of heat damage and a little into defence and hit points.
Heat gives the overheat bonuses, allowing the plasma pistols to be used with single shot forever. You can even pop in a couple of piercing shots without affecting the heat gauge much. Also a bunch of +dmg.
Single target gives +dmg but the primary skill for this tree is "one shot a critter and get 10% health back"
4 pts in Defence gets the first two pips on the left and right trees for some dmg reduction.
4 pts in Hitpoints gets some more hps and the innoculator reset once you hit 30% life.
Perks are Grinder and the double regen one. Regen sits about 100/sec.
Now this build walks directly into a room and proceeds to one shot everything that isn't a medium or bigger creature. All those guys wanting to melee you and shoot you are basically a one click 10% heal. I've been in the situation many times now where I have no suppression left and my hp bar sits on full as I go from room to room executing everyone. Walk up to a guy behind cover and Blam! Die heretic scum ! (with a 10% heal)
This is also a fun build when using a plasma cannon.
What build are you all using ?
