The Story

Nisha is the third Vault Hunter in Borderlands the Pre-Sequel and you might remember her as the Sheriff in Borderlands 2.  She was not just the sheriff of Lynchwood but she was also Handsome Jack’s girlfriend, so with the Pre-Sequel taking place before Borderlands 2, we might get some insight into how those two found each other.

We also know that she strangled Brick’s puppy and Borderlands franchise director Matt Armstrong referred to Nisha as “some people are just born bad”, whereas other characters had some event change them into who they are now. The team couldn’t come up with the right excuse that would justify strangling puppies.

Nisha’s Action skill

Something we have been waiting for is to discover Nisha’s Action Skill. Today we will learn just that because there is an overload of Borderlands the Pre-Sequel videos that reveal Nisha’s action skill.

After seeing the first screenshot of Nisha we guessed that her action skill would be something like Salvador’s action skill in Borderlands 2. Where Salvador has the ability to dual wield any 2 guns in the game, the community thought that Nisha would dual wield 2 pistols because is known as the Gunslinger. This is not exactly the case, Nisha’s Action skill is ‘showdown’, it’s an auto-aim skill and gives you a lot of gun boosts.

  • Gun Damage +42%
  • Fire Rate +15%
  • Reload Speed +125%
  • Accuracy + 15%
  • Bullet Speed +50%
  • Recoil Reduction +30%

Showdown lasts for 6 seconds and has a cooldown of 16 seconds. There is a skill that gives you some more action skill duration every time you kill an enemy within Showdown.

Nisha’s Skill Trees

The 3 skill trees are named Law & Order, Fan the Hammer, and The Riflewoman.

Law & Order

A defensive skill tree with melee buffs and a melee override skill gives your whip an electric shock effect. This tree also uses a stacking mechanic that will provide certain buffs. For every 15% of damage that Nisha takes she gets a little amount of Health back.

Fan the Hammer

The Gunslinger tree is very good if you use Jacobs guns with low magazine size. One skill gives all non-elemental weapons explosive damage and when you reach the capstone you will be able to dual wield any two pistols. You don’t have to farm for a second gun, you get a duplicate of the pistol you have equipped.

The Riflewoman

This rifle and sniper tree is more like a “no scope tree” as bullets will ricochet and will damage enemies. A skill called tombstone will give you a chance that all hits will count as critical hits. The capstone skill is that every enemy you hit during Showdown will get an explosive charge that will explode when your action skill ends.
