I personally found the siren to be amazingly strong/fun. All I had to do was kill one enemy then run around in phasewalk tagging people and letting my insane elemental damage kill them. Even post ohasewalk the kill skill giving increased movement allowed me to melt them without using many bullets at all.

Roland is undoubtedly good, but how's the others compared to him? Also, which skills would you add for each for purely solo play?

quote HunterKiller666
Berserk will start to suck around mid-game. Enemies are simply too strong for you to melee without getting gang raped half of the time. And even if you manage to beat the game once, best of luck advancing on playthrough 2. As for weapons, you have the freedom to specialize any of the character with any given weapon so it is definitely doable to build Brick into a sniper, but he will never be able to utilize the sniper rifle to its full potential. The two weapon types that Brick's skillset is designed for are Shotgun and Rocket Launcher with the first lacking the range and DPS whereas the latter just blows in a big way. He's fun to play with in the beginning but things can get frustrating quickly unless you build him into a long-range fighter, which doesn't really fit with his playstyle.
I kicked ass through the entire game to playthrough 2.5 and beyond.

Brick is the best all around character because of his hardened and die hard skill plus the extra sheild skill and then there is the ability to regen health when you use his action skill also he is quite good with shotguns and revolvers I leveled him up to 50 something the best revolver to use is the pestelent defiler I have two of them. I found him amazingly good with a purple centurion class mod. Roland is quite useless unless you're playing with one or more people I find the turret stupid and useless unless you want to be behind cover a lot then use brick or mordeci he's mildly overpowered if you upgrade him right. Lilith is alright not too bad but her action skill could have been better unless you have good items for her from a previous game she is weaker than mordeci.

Lilith because she can boat fire rate by a lot and elementle weapons bad ass

i just beat the game with the siren mostly one shoting enemies with an amped up two shot fire revolver that sometimes dosent auto reload and sometimes fires 4 shots be for realoding. great first toon in my opinion. phasewalk takes out most enemies in a mater of moments with phenix radience and corrosive upgrades

It's really all about your playing style. I played as all of the characters. I found Maya's skill very difficult to use. Moredecai was good, but it was hard to make bloodwing a beast. Brick isnt too good, that is something you need to look into. I used Roland, and beat both playthroughs. His turret can be like having one or even two extra men on the field. also, I generally suck at fps, and since Roland is essentially the easiest character I use him,

Nov 09, 12 at 12:06pm

I agree with some others.
I'm playing my first time as Roland and the Turret is very usefull
Also I like his comments more than that lauching woman lol
The rest of the characters, I still need to test.
