The Hammerzerker is a melee monster with excellent elemental damage, and this build will help players make the most of this multiclass.

p>Tiny Tina's Wonderlands features six spectacular classes for players to choose between and also features a robust multiclassing system, allowing players to merge two classes together when creating their build. Of these multiclasses, the Hammerzerker is a spectacular fusion of the Brr-Zerker and Clawbringer that melds devastating melee combat and rage buffs with deadly elemental attacks and a wyvern ally to share the carnage.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is set within the Borderlands universe and centers around Tiny Tina's latest Bunkers & Badasses adventure. Players will travel through the Wonderlands as they endure a myriad of fiendish encounters on their quest to gear up and defeat the terrifying Dragonlord.

Melee Hammerzerker Build

This Hammerzerker build is all about dealing incredible damage in melee range and living long enough to tell the tale later. To this end, the build delves heavily into the Brr-Zerker skill tree, grabbing skills all the way up to its capstone skill. It also takes skills up to tier 3 in the Clawbringer Skill tree, taking skills that further improve on melee damage and defensive power.

For making an especially tanky character, this build uses The Old Ways (Brr-Zerker Tier 2) to greatly increase damage reduction and damage dealt when close to an enemy. This 30% damage reduction with the skill maxed out makes it way harder to deal meaningful damage to the Hammerzerker.

The skill Rebuke (Clawbringer Tier 2) adds a permanent 15% damage reduction, making the Hammerzerker up to 45% more resistant to damage when close to enemies. Meanwhile, the skill Savagery (Brr-Zerker Tier 1) grants a 20% bonus to melee damage and extends the duration of rage by 5 seconds once maxed out. This results in up to 50% extra melee damage when close to enemies, and is key to giving this build a ton of raw power.

Improving the Hammerzerker's odds of survival even in deadly straits is the skill Relentless Rage (Brr-Zerker Tier 4), allowing the Hammerzerker to regain Save Your Soul time by damaging enemies, and causing them to enrage if they successfully kill an enemy in "Save Your Soul" mode. Blood Frenzy (Brr-Zerker Tier 3) further improves the Hammerzerker's effectiveness in combat by extending the rage timer and restoring health whenever an enemy is killed.

Further, increasing the damage dealt by this build is the skill Oath of Thunder (Clawbringer Tier 1), which allows the Hammerzerker to deal 25% additional lightning damage with their melee attacks while also granting that bonus to their wyvern companion's attacks.

Blast Chill (Brr-Zerker Tier 5) adds AOE to the mix by adding a 20% chance for melee attacks to create a frost nova. This is paired with the skill Ancestral Frost (Brr-Zerker Tier 1) to increase frost damage by 20%.

The Brr-Zerker class feat "Enrage" allows them to enter a rage after using an action skill. Due to usually wanting to be close to foes, the ideal action skills for this build are the Brr-Zerker's dreadwind or the Clawbringer's Cleansing flames, both of which deal excellent AOE damage and will trigger Enrage. Meanwhile, the Clawbringer's class feat "Wyvern Companion" provides them with backup to deal damage and draw attention from foes.

The Brr-Zerker Capstone Skill "Blood of the Fallen" allows the player to reduce the cooldown of their action skill whenever they kill an enemy or extend its duration if it is currently active. This makes it easy for the Brr-Zerker to keep reactivating enrage by using dreadwind or cleansing flames.

Meanwhile, Blasthamut's Favour (Clawbringer Tier 3) allows the Brr-Zerker to generate fire orbs whenever they kill foes with a gun, or lightning orbs whenever they kill a foe with a melee attack, allowing them to deal additional elemental damage to nearby enemies.
