This is based on how I played Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid 4 (love the M14EBR and the SOCOM pistol) ... basically it focuses on sniper rifle skills combined with pistol fire ....I used to use a shotgun for Rakks and other flying beasts but then changed to a Masher to take advantage of the pistol skils

I really noticed that Loaded made a big difference in how I used my sniper rifles - made them much more effective in actual combat so I chose that over Riotous Remedy ... if you have a health regen shield, I find killing badguys much more important than a little healing ...


As far as weapons ... I just use weapons that benefit from the build ...


1 Sniper Rifle (biggest can find with elemental damage and reasonable rate of fire)

1 Revolver with a Masher attachment (for Rakks)

1 Revolver (big damage + different elements)

1 Machine pistol (use against little guys that are way too fast to aim)


Grenade Mod - Transfusion (healing = good ... especially in cases where you need to start throwing grenades ... means they're way too close)

Shield - biggest w/ good regen speed and health regen

Class Mod - Gunslinger or Sniper .... preferably both (have 1 of each w/ ammo regen - swap as needed and as used)


Ideal equipment:

Sniper Rifle - Torgue Cobra (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Torgue_Cobra) -- great explosion damage

(another choice - Maliwan Volcano (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Maliwan_Volcano) -- great fire damage + splash to hit the nearby targets ...)

Revolver Masher - Dahl Anaconda (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Dahl_Anaconda) or Tediore Equalizer (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Tediore_Equalizer) with Masher attachment (any masher will do though)

Revolver - Atlas Chimera (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Atlas_Chimera)

Repeater Pistol - BLR Hornet (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/The_Dove and http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Dahl_Hornet)


Class Mod - Gunslinger AND Sniper, both with ammo regen and best stats otherwise (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Class_Mods#Hunter) ... I generally use gunslinger because deadly and relentless are always useful, and the loaded helps sniper rifles while the pistol fire rate helps pistols ... and you go through a lot of pistol ammo quick .... hunter one would only get used when I am low on sniper ammo or when at a fixed position with little chance of the badguys getting close and personal
