Verbally assault your victim's to death -- The best defense is a strong offense!
Pros: That's alotta damage! & No Driver mod / Cons: Glass Cannon
Most people will be going for the two tree skill caps, but you don't need more than 1 point in sustainment with this build, so that frees up more points to spend into personal space and samsara.
There is some debate in the community whether or not samsara works with Ties that bind -- it's an easy test. Equip no healing other than samsara, go grab a group of enemies with low health and watch what happens when you shoot them. The ties that bind skill itself does not do damage, but the linked damage shared by the enemies counts as 'action skill damage'.
A key point of this build is to not use Allure. Allure reduces damage by 20% and makes enemies fly around (which is actually not useful at all) and then you can skip investing a point into ascendant just for the extra allure radius.
For gear, you will ideally want to find a shield with ASE 50% cryo or radiation, and a grenade with the opposite. Any gun combo works with this build, but I typically use the Lob, recursion, hyperfocus, and wedding invite
