Hey, Borderland fans! This is Oxmonkey with
BroCo Gaming. Today I’m going to show you a sick build for
Salvador. With the right set of skills and a combo of special gear, we’ll amplify pistol
damage to extreme levels. In the end you’ll be so damn good at killing even a grizzly
with an AK-47 will be impressed. We’ll cover 2 skill tree setups for this build
— one all-purpose version and another specifically for bosses. I’ll go over my favorite gear.
I’ll give you some alternative items that also work well with this build. Finally I’ll
show you some great ways to use this in battle. And if this video helps you out, you can help

The goal here is to maximize weapon damage, boost fire rate, and enhance Gunzerking.
This is for most gameplay when you’re battling multiple enemies so I like to take advantage
of these Kill Skills and their bonuses. With this tree, you can often Gunzerk well
past cool down and instantly jump right into another Gunzerking spree. Which is just awesome. Now let’s go over the Class Mod and Relic.
I use the Suave Renegade Class Mod because it seriously boosts pistol damage. This mod
comes in different forms but you want as many I’m your Huckleberry skill points for the
additional pistol damage. For the other bonus skill I like Incite because
it increases movement and reload speed. You can get this mod from chests, enemies,
waste piles. But a good spot to score it is in the Treasure Room. Check out our video
on farming the Treasure Room. Next is the Sheriff’s Badge relic. Like the
class mod, this badass relic also amps up pistol damage.
With the +22% pistol damage from this relic, the +51 from the class mod, and the +33 from
the I’m you Huckleberry skill that’s around +106% pistol damage alone. HOLY MONKEYS THAT’S
IMPRESSIVE!!! And that doesn’t even include the additional overall weapon damage that
comes from other skills on the tree. The awesome Sheriff’s Badge doesn’t stop there.
It has another great feature. It also really bumps up fire rate. Wow, that’s about 53%.
Huge! As my great Gram-Gram used to say… more bullets, more damage, more death! Mmm.
So wise. You can score this relic from the Sheriff
of Lynchwood. Let’s look at the “Boss” tree. It’s very similar
but the small tweaks can make a big difference. Taking on a single Boss the Kill Skills become
useless. So move those points to other skills, like so. Finally, our gear. My first choice of pistol
is the Unkempt Harold. This is just simply one of the most powerful weapons in the entire
game. And you’ll definitely want to get the Double-Penetrating version so you can unleash
two deadly shot spreads. The best way to score this pistol is from the Torgue vending machines
in Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage DLC. You can double up with two Harolds but I prefer
the Grog Nozzle as my second pistol. The Grog Nozzle doesn’t do much damage but
it’s an excellent addition because of its self-healing effect. It heals at a rate of
65% percent! DAMN THAT’S INCREDIBLE! What’s also great is the Grog Nozzle heals from other
non-gun damage like grenades, melee attacks, and elemental damage. Plus! This son of a
bitch has an awesome 40-50% chance to Slag. With that in mind, I think this is a must-have
pistol! You get the Grog Nozzle from Tiny Tina’s Assault
on Dragon Keep DLC from the “Beard Makes the Man” mission. BUT DON’T TURN IN THE MISSION
or you’ll lose it! Keep the gun for the rest of your gameplay. The shield I use most with this build is the
Antagonist. It has good capacity and high damage reduction. It can also deflect bullets
with up to 880% damage to enemies and it shoots homing slag balls at attackers. So you can
slag and kill enemies with a shield! SWEET! You can farm the Antagonist from the Seraph
vendor in Flamerock Refuge. Finally, the grenade mod I use most often
is the Quasar because it pulls together enemies so you can annihilate those bastards in batches.
You can score the Quasar from Ultimate Varkids or from farming the Treasure Room and the
Loot Midgets of the Wildlife Preserve. For the last two weapon slots I usually pack
two Norfleets to quickly get me out of Fight for Your Life situations in case I go down.
Not everyone has Norfleets lying around so you can use any heavy rocket launchers. But
for me these two spaces are not set in stone. So you can get creative with the other two
weapons. Maybe another pair of pistols or elemental weapons specific to the enemies
you’re going up against. Now let’s talk about some alternatives to
the gear above that work well with this build. Additional options for pistols are Infinity
pistols. With their endless supply of ammo, there is endless damage to be had. Lady Fists
are another great choice. This pistol has an unusually high bonus of critical hit damage
at +800%. Also reverse recoil, good accuracy and rate of fire. Other shields to use are The Bee shield with
its ability to greatly amp up damage. And The Sham is a good option with its extremely
high chance to absorb bullets and add them to your backpack. For another class mod, I always have the Hoarder
class mod with me. Now this is not an alternative to the Suave Renegade it’s actually a companion
mod. Salvador is able to regenerate ammo but sometimes, even with this ability, your supply
can’t keep up with the number of bullets you’re putting out. Equip the Hoarder when you’re
low and you can regen ammo even quicker. If you don’t have the Sheriff’s Badge Relic,
a good alternative is the pistol version of the Aggression Relic which can boost your
pistol damage up to 39%. Finally, I always have the Magic Missile Grenade
mod, first because it slags but also because it regenerates grenades. Any grenades you
use with your Grog Nozzle armed not only do damage but heal at the same time. Get good
at this combo and you can save yourself in some really tight spots. Options for this
use are the Storm Front and the Fastball. In closing, here are some great battle uses
for this build. It’s excellent for taking down large groups of enemies, for badass enemies,
and a huge number of bosses. I’ve also been able to successfully solo some of the harder
challenges in this game, like the run to score Over Power 8, making it through the super
tough Magic Slaughter: Badass Round, murdering a number of the Invincibles, victory over
the Ancient Dragons of Destruction, and more. Hey, if you have any other favorite items
that you like for this build, please feel free to share. Thanks for watching everyone.
