8. Character Builds

Builds that I myself have personally tested, with my subjective assessment of their playability and fun.

8.1 Spark + Dual SMGs

Dual SMGs is best for shooting effects, such as lightning that cast on every second shot and fireball, which appears every fourth shot.

Thanks to the large magazine and passives of Spark, we will have infinitely replenished ammo and constant lightning and fire.

Take the upgrade tree for reload rate and all upgrades from the Summon treeDO NOT NEED.

Choose Priority Upgrades:

  1. UPGRADES YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TAKE. You must choose upgrades to increase damage and replenish ammo.
