Fl4k Pestilence Pistol Gamma Burst BuildFl4k build by AbbyHour updated 8 hours ago
This is a super fun "run and gun" style Fl4k build. Great for mobbing, <5 min Proving Grounds, Slaughter, and Bosses. Based around the Pestilence Pistol (radiation) and bonus points if you get the anointment "While Gamma Burst is active, gain 65% bonus radiation damage."
The Pestilence pistol has a 50/50 chance to irradiate you when overheated. Once irradiated, the Elemental Projector artifact kicks in, dealing +183% bonus elemental damage. I pair this with the Spiderant Scorcher for an added 30% elemental damage. This pet also gives health regen which is needed as this build is a bit of a glass cannon. Wearing the Red Suit shield gives you immunity to radiation, but still procs the artifact perk.
With this build, I have completed 3 different Proving Grounds in less than 5 minutes (solo) and 15 second kill on Graveward.
You can farm for the pistol and shield from Atomic and Sylestro who are the Target of Opportunity on Nekrotafeyo > Tazendeer Ruins (I also got my pistol from Heckle on Jacob's Estate).
Must Have Gear:
- Pestilence COV Pistol (or radiation weapon)
- Anointed perk: While Gamma Burst is active, gain 65% bonus radiation damage.
- Red Suit Shield
- Elemental Projector Artifact (one with +183% elemental damage)
- Bounty Hunter class mod (optional) - could also use friend-bot to boost pet damage and barbaric yawp
