What do you guys think about Axton class?
Personally I think he's pretty bland a boring since his skill tree is just using the turret and it seems like hes not very powerful, also at a certain level the turret becomes extremely weak.

Eh, I never liked Axton since he's such an all-around class. The turrets aren't really fun, then again I've never gotten past level 30 with him.

I was bored to tears playing him solo, but revived him to play coop with my buds, and actually had fun with his skills and one-liners.

I enjoy him very much. When you can put down two turrest at one time that have a shield and shoot missiles, they get pretty BA.

You don't need to bump your discussion every couple of minutes, it's not going anywhere (untill a Mod deletes it for being bumped so much.)

As for Axton, he's the most bland character to play, but he's also the one character whom this game was designed around. There's no part of this game he can't handle, though also there's no part in this game that he excels at. I would also say he's much more useful in co-op than running solo, even though he's one of the easier solo characters in Normal Mode. Out of the original four vault hunters I always recommend him for any new vault hunters to play because he can just throw out his turret to distract the enemies while they learn the ins and outs of the game. Then they can move on to the "fun" character that more suites thier playstyle.

he's my favorite class to play. dual turrets with slag cannons, lonbow technology and shields, with a complete Torgue weapon build absolutly destroys anything.

Dual nukes = ded.

He's pretty badass.

He was the first class I used and the first to OP8. He's a solid character to play even though he may not have some of the OP characteristcs of some others. I really liked the ability to launch the turrets at infinite distances against walls, with slag / duel rockets. Not a very good class for co-op but a ton of fun solo.

Made it to OP8 solo using Axton. He is very build critical though, use the wrong build snd you are toast. That is probably what happened to you.

Axton was my first character to actually make it to Sanctuary (my very first char was Zero, and he died far too much at the start, so I shelved him for a bit:) ). I played thru the first 2 playthrus, and he was quite fun, but not exceptional. And then I started UVHM, and got my butt handed to me. I just can't seem to find a build/playstyle with him that works for me, and I really want to give him another try, but I'm too distracted with Krieg, Gaige and Maya at the moment, which are by far my favored characters.

Fixed that for ya.

No seriously, he's a blast. If you're looking to just shoot a lot of different guns, he's great. I found him useful for solo and that turret really plays well later in the game as you level it. My personal favorite class to play in game.

I loved Axton. I started out playing the mechromancer and got my @$$ royally handed to me. Restarted with Axton and steamrolled over everything. If anything, the game was too easy. The other thing was, I found only one or two weapons that could even come CLOSE to competing with the turret. The cool thing about the turret is that you can manually put it away, meaning that you get it that much quicker the next time you need it.

Axton is awesome ... though I didn't go to UVHM yet. I decided to restart with Salvadore. I actually find him a little less interesting because you just run around and shoot. With Axton, I could pull off strategy with putting the turret in a good place and then moving to set up a wicked crossfire.

In UVHM is totally useless when you play alone.

The turret with no upgrades is useless, but a well up graded turret is a powerful force to be reckoned with. You're statement is incorrect and I must say PEBKAC.
