Real talk I had to learn how to play him too...cuz he's a shotgun user. What I do is make sure to NEVER rush anyone...but I do stick with a shotty most of the time and the one I'm currently using has blast elemental which with his skills that add explosive damage becomes deadly. But I also keep a CR hotkeyed at all times in case I need to light some s**t up. Don't rush nine toes though his weapon fires super fast. Take out Pinky and Digit first then light Nine Toes up until his shield drops...if u have a static weapon that'll help...then go Berserk and light his a.ss up if your health gets low...I just hit lvl 31 today and I never die...Bricks skills make it damn near impossible to die if you spec him right.
You mind postin your spec tree?
I'm thinking of spec'n mostly tank with a few of the blaster skills. This punching s**t just aint for me, but I like the idea of being able to take damage and still reck s**t up
