I love this build for open world PvE. It is so much fun to play when you have grown tired of Holomancer! :)

Correction required, though: If you are running ascended gear like I do, either replace the necklace or the back piece + one accessory with Berserker's, as Boon Duration cannot exceed +100%, therefore the additional percentages are lost (at the cost of damage). Replacing the necklace will leave you with >100% still, replacing the back piece and an accessory will leave you with 99.53%.

It is fun to play something other than Holo, but this build doesn't really outshine Protection Holo in any way. The sustain isn't any better, the damage is much weaker, and it has next to nothing for condi removal. Better off just playing Protection Holo.

I tried out a modified version of this for the Crown Pavilion Boss Blitz, and it has great survival- and group support ability with the Medic & Bulwark Gyros. It's also great at tagging enemies, as all Flamethrower builds are :)

This is a very new player friendly build that brings survivability and decent DPS. Flamethrower is great for farming and just killing things, you're very tanky because of all the boons you gain and plus the barrier you receive from dealing damage. It's a very decent tank, though you won't see big numbers like you would with the Static Sw/shield build on Holo, but you will survive a lot longer and possibly, if you change a few traits, can solo a lot of champion bosses with this build. A solid build, in my opinion.

it's been a few months since I was playing with the "Holo Protection" version, and it is true that with this Scrapper survival and DPS are an equal share. It's very nice to replay Marter squad or with the gun and shield solo. The flamethrower makes it easy to loot during a meta event without losing dps compare to that version "Farming"
