Here is the official Borderlands 2 thread What character will everyone play with first? I think I might start with Maya. But Zer0 does seem tempting Axton (commando): Skill:Sabre Turret-Axton is able to deploy a versatile Dahl Sabre Turret, a veritable arsenal with 360° rotation and a weapons complement that can be upgraded to include multi-rocket launcher and a portable nuke. Cooldown is 48 seconds (same as Salvador). Maya (Siren): Skillhaselock-Maya's skill gives her the ability to suspend foes in a bubble of energy. This can lock an opponent in a stasis, and can be upgraded to provide various damaging effects. This skill is useful for crowd control in both co-op and single player mode. Repeatedly Phaselocking the same enemy results in diminishing returns. Zer0 (Assassin): Skillecepti0n-Decepti0n, grants him the ability to deploy a holographic decoy of himself and enter an invisible "stealth mode." While cloaked, Zer0 can maneuver about the battlefield dealing amplified damage on his next attack. The longer Zer0 stays cloaked the more damage he can inflict to enemies, however, the shorter Zer0 stays cloaked, the faster he is able to use the skill again. Zer0 does not enter a separate dimension, like Lilith when she Phasewalks, and can still take damage from grenades and other forms of splash damage while cloaked. Salvador (Gunzerker): Skill:Gunzerkering-wield two guns at once and fill their enemies with twice the amount of hot lead than was previously possible. His rampage and gun lust trees up the ante by boosting his dual wielding skills and amping up weapon stats. The brawn skill tree is all about bumping up the amount of damage Salvador can take and dish out. Base cooldown for Gunzerking is 42 seconds. Fifth Character (DLC Oct 16th) Gaige (Mechromancer): a punk girl in a jean jacket, pigtails, and a robot arm. Her support ability summons a giant tank named Deathtrap who, unlike commando Axton’s turrets, is there to draw fire away from the player.
