FL4K’s 4th Skill Tree Revealed – Borderlands 3

New Skill Tree Announced

Today I bring also you an overview of FL4K’s Trapper Skill Tree. This 4th skill tree is part of the Designer’s Cut DLC package which also contains a new standalone game mode called Arms Race.

Survivability Skill Tree

FL4K has always been the glass cannon of the 4 Vault Hunters in Borderlands 3. With the new Trapper skill tree, FL4K and their Pets are able to gain a lot of survivability skills. FL4K is the Beastmaster and with this 4th skill tree, you are able to utilize your Pet a lot more. Throughout the Trapper Tree, there are skills that create synergy between you and your pet.

Gravity Snare Action Skill

The Trapper Skill Tree comes with the Gravity Snare action skill. This lets you throw a beacon onto the field that knocks your opponents up into the air. However, further down the skill tree, you are also able to have another crowd control ability. As the ‘Blind with Anger’ augment lets you confuse your enemies and set them up against each other.

But you can also opt-in other augments that enhance the Gravity Snare with ways to boost your survivability. Enemies will drop boosters or the Trap automatically activates when you go into Fight For Your Life.
