Gaige Building with Death trap

Table of Contents

General Information

Gaige’s Elementor build is for people who love DeathTrap. It will work well for mobbing (including Digistruct Peak/some Minibosses, except raid bosses). And this build is for endgame (Level 72~OP8).


    • Very fun mobbing
    • DT is too strong
    • accepting EE and UF bonuses easily


    • Not suitable for Raids
    • Getting stacks is relatively hard.

For Details about this build

Strictly speaking, this is focused on DT with taking LBT or OC into account. In general, as it pretty much depends on DT, Gaige herself is not strong so much. So for mobbing, it needs some ideas or solutions.

Weapons & Shields

Recommended Setup

    • GrogcNozzle /Rubi
    • Free
    • Corrosive Pimpernel
    • Twister
    • Any roid shield
    • Chaostic Good Necromancer/Leg Mechromancer
    • Chain Lightning
    • BoA (Corrosive)


    • Especially in Pun-chee, farming is easy and has power similar to order.
    • Shield recharge delay: 3.5s~5.5s
    • Any roid shields are okay.
Big Boom Blaster
      • Infinite possibilities. And also useful for Pete, and Dragons.

Let’s throw Chain Lightning at your feet, so your shield and health will be full. And also useful for raid bosses. And also Very, very, very nice for a skeleton mage (DLC4)

Grenade Mods

Chain Lightning

You need another way of slagging. If you shoot and shoot Grog Nozzle, using CL mainly makes you get stacks faster. And with EB, healing with Moxxi will be good.

Magic Missile
Transfusion (slag)

Class Mods

Chaostic Good Necromancer 
      • General, I recommend it for DPS.
      • Especially for Time Trial players.
      • You can get the best DPS. So Time Trial players often use this.
      • By the way, this, CNN, and Prodigy mod’s weapon cards are incorrect.
Leg Mechomancer 
      • Very stable. I recommend for beginners on this build.
      • Maybe this mod is superior to Leg Catalyst and Leg Anarchy on DPS.
      • And it has a lot of bonuses for DT.
        • It is very easy to keep Unstoppable Force and Evil Enchantress.
        • I pay attention to Unstoppable Force, Evil Enchantress, and so on.
Leg Anarchy
      • Very stable and good balance mod. (Especially on Unstoppable Force and Typecast Iconoclast)
      • And also gun bonus helps you on low stacks.
      • As for DPS, maybe Necromancer mod is best.
      • Need a fire rate like The Better Half.
Leg Catalyst
      • I don’t recommend it so much.
      • Very nice for DoT, but DoT is very hard on OP.
      • And also I/O will be lv10 by this COM boost. Maybe it will useful.
      • But maybe DPS with this will be lower than other COMs.
      • Need a fire rate like The Better Half.
Leg Roboteer
      • For DT-LBT, this is too much overkill, so I don’t recommend it, except in the case you love DT.


Bone of Ancients 
      • I recommend Corrosive elemental (except Time Trial).
      • Cooldown bonus and elemental bonus = perfect relic
Shadow Seraph
      • Very good for getting stacks.
      • There is no cooldown bonus.
      • On DPS, this can work well for much of weapons. And great buff(maybe more than 30% DPS buff on much of cases).
Sheriff Badge
      • In special cases (DigiPeak, DLC4), it can work very well. Even in low stacks, you will have enough power and also it makes you get stacks more quickly. But a bit of a problem with ammo.


    • Flakker: Very effective for BigMob
    • Norfleet: Strong (I recommend Corrosive)
    • Interfacer: Good on the low stack.Bad on the high stack.Not good for stacking.
    • Hive: useful
    • Pimpernel: Solution on low stacks.And work well on high stacks.(I recommend Corrosive)
    • Lyuda: (I recommend Corrosive)
    • Hail: (I recommend Shock or Corrosive)
    • Twister
    • Omen: not good for getting stacks
    • BlockHead
    • Orphan Maker
    • Conference Call: not good for getting stacks, but work very well on high stacks.
    • DPUH: strong and very good for getting stacks.But very bad on high stacks.
    • Fibber (Shock): maybe good
    • Fibber (Corrosive): almighty
    • Fibber (Slag): slagging wide area quickly.Very good on co-op or with Hive.

For getting stacks, how much ammo is consumed and weapon damage are important.


Death Trap’s Element

If playing alone or with a friend, any elemental gives DT enough power.

If you play with 3 people or want more power, you had better append shock or weakness elemental.

If you append fire or corrosive, Chain Lightning will work well.

Additional Notes

    • Anarchy Bonus: How many stacks
    • Amp Damage: With/out “The Bee”
    • Critical Hit: Unique bonus on every weapon / xxx Evil Necro etc…
    • Elemental Bonus: WDT(skill) / Bone of Ancients etc…
    • Fire Rate: Prefix of weapon / Chaotic xxx Necro / Discord / The Better Half etc

Reinforcing every factor enough is very important on DPS.
