About Krieg

Krieg the Psycho - Borderlands 2

Krieg is one of the playable characters in Borderlands 2. He was part of an experiment that encouraged traits like self-harm, suicidal impulses, and reckless behavior. However, instead of destroying his sanity, it manifested as an “inner voice” in his mind. While Krieg’s sane side maintains hopeful, his psychotic side became the dominant personality.

Krieg is the Psycho class of the game. He is able to transform into a psychotic killer. Equipped with his Buzzaxe, this maniac will go on a rampage and therefore, his playstyle differs from the other vault hunters, as with this character you want to take as much damage as possible to boost yourself. If you like to melee stuff, Krieg is your guy!

Krieg’s Action Skill

Krieg’s Action skill is called “Buzz Axe Rampage“. When activated, you will transform into a psychotic killer and your main weapon will be a Psycho’s Buzz Axe. You will receive several bonuses throughout its duration as you rampage across the playing field.
