The Best Nisha Build in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel

The Best Nisha Build in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel

The moment we started playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the name of one of the main characters caught the attention of all veteran Borderlands 2 players. This character is Nisha, and all Borderlands 2 veterans will remember that she is known as the girlfriend of Handsome Jack, who, like Wilhelm, we killed in Borderlands 2.

Before she meets her tragic end at the hands of the Vault Hunters, Nisha is one of the anti-heroes of Borderlands The Pre-Sequel, and in fact, is one of the most fun to use, as all of her skills are based on Nisha being a psychopath. As Torque announces in the trailer, she benefits from both doing damage and taking damage.

The Build: Crit Shot Nisha

Although all the points are distributed in almost all the skills, this build is based on the Nisha the Riflewoman branch, and that’s because that’s where we’ll get the main tools for her play style.

With this build, Nisha will be able to shoot everywhere with a fast reload and shooting speed. Nisha will have more and more critical damage with every enemy she kills. Lastly, the key to this build is that the ammo bounces all over the walls, so you can afford to miss some shots, sooner or later, they will end up hitting someone.

The Best Equipment for Nisha

Here are the best pieces of gear for Nisha in the Borderlands Pre-Sequel. Including the best shield, grenade, and class mod for Nisha.

Best Weapons for Nisha

The best three weapons we will get for this build of Nisha are Absolute Zero, Nukem and Flyer.

Flyer is an excellent shotgun for Nisha, because with its increased magazine size, pellet count, and accuracy. It complements the build perfectly. It can be obtained from many places, but the easiest way is by farming viruses.

On the other hand, Nukem is a rocket launcher that also makes an appearance in Borderlands 2. This weapon has great damage since it uses two ammunition per shot, and the only thing it loses is reload speed, although, with this build, it won’t be a problem.

Finally, Absolute Zero will give us great Crowd Control. Not only its damage is very high, but it also has a great chance of elemental damage, so you don’t depend only on how tanky the enemies are.

Best grenades for Nisha: Data Scrubber

I’ll be honest with you: Nisha doesn’t need grenades. By the time you throw your grenades, your enemies are probably already dead, but they’re still useful against bosses. Because of this, we didn’t choose grenades that are known for their high damage, but for the survivability it gives Nisha, and with the extra shield it gives, Data Scrubber is ideal.

Best Shield for Nisha: The Prismatic Bulwark

Theoretically and statistically, this may not be a great shield, but if we take into account the huge improvement we get in damage with lasers and the ammo we will save, it is colossal. Obviously, this shield will only work if we are using Absolute Zero, but if we still don’t get it, it can work with any other weapon that fires lasers.

If you don’t like lasers anyway, you can use The Sham instead of this shield.

Best Oz Kit for Nisha: 3DD1.E

In this section, we definitely recommend using 3DD1.E. Not only does it complement your shield and Absolute Zero and increase your damage with your lasers, but it also gives you a good source of shield and survivability, and that’s all Nisha really needs in the game.

Best Class Mod For Nisha: Celestial Lawbringer

The bonus of this Class Mod is amazing, as it gives you a huge amount of points on your entire skill tree. In addition, it has a great life steal bonus while you are using Showdown, your main skill.

As if this wasn’t enough, the main reason why we chose Celestial Lawbringer is that it has almost 15% Skill Cooldown Reduction, which for Nisha, is amazing.

Best Class Mod For Nisha: Celestial Lawbringer

This was the best build for Nisha! In fact, you could even say it’s the only build since the rest aren’t really viable. What do you think of it? Have you had fun eliminating enemies in seconds? Tell us in the comments!
