Gaige The Mechromancer, the 5th new playable character, is a great add-on for Borderlands 2. With this dangerous girl with bad attitude, you will have the chance to try three new skill trees: "Little Big Trouble", which focuses in elemental damage and effects, like burning electrocution, especially effective against shielded enemies; "Ordered Chaos" (a.k.a. Anarchy), which focuses in increasing the damage done by your weapons, incredible effective to any enemy, but the higher the damage level, the accuracy will be affected as well although negatively. And the third skill is "Best Friends Forever", which focuses in her robot friend: Deathtrap, an extremely useful robot who can fight for Gaige with some helpful abilities.
The three new skills can be a little challenging to handle and manage for newcomers, so this is most recommendable for fans looking for some new way to play. Although, it's still recommendable for any fan of Borderlands 2. The important thing is to get the balance that works for you. A very enjoyable DLC.

The Mechromancer is great fun. Gaige, as she is known, has a few specialized skills that help her murder her enemies with no remorse. Anarchy Stacks increase her damage but decrease her accuracy, as long as you never manually reload. Her robot, Deathtrap, is her ability and it kicks ass. It moves around the field annihilating anything that stands in its way.
Gaige was well-written and voice-acted. She's as close as you can get to a playable Tiny Tina. It's loads of fun and, depending on which skill tree you choose, can be very difficult or can be Borderlands 2: Easy Mode.

If you've gotten bored with the base 4 characters in BL2, I believe you'll be very happy with Gaige, the game's Technomancer. Long with her funny, energetic personality, you'll have a really nice arsenal of new abilities to learn with her. You can choose moves to burst shields, or blow people's heads off with shotguns via the anarchy power, or you can summon yourself up a killer robot called Deathtrap. While they're all fun skill trees, I found myself using anarchy more on the harder difficulties and using Deathtrap as a distraction, but play around with skills. Assuming you have access to the Level 72 cap, you'll have plenty of combos to discover with this character. Well worth it if you've wanted something a little different than Axton's immobile turret or someone built for a shotgun.

The Mechromancer Class is one of my favorite classes in BL2. Who wouldn't want a power robot named Deathtrap to fight for you while ur just watching him kill the enemies while ur eating some popcorn. I got this dlc from the pre-order but I would stay this dlc is so worth about $10.
Awesome design, one does not simply not love Gaige.asiersua | Sept. 28, 2013 | See all asiersua's reviews »
Gaige is a greatly designed character, you'll love her in many ways, or you may love her Deathtrap more than herself, depending on how you build her. The three skill trees make for a quite flexible choice of roles, you can either make Deathtrap an epic robot who'll kill all the badasses for you, or go full Anarchy on the enemies and wreck their faces with low to no accuracy, or just get all the electric weapons you find to exterminate the enemy shields (and, eventually, melt their faces as well). Depending on the build, however, her skill feels a bit underpowered, Deathtrap will die quite soon if you don't upgrade him much. However, you'll be the one melting faces, so a robot's help is not too bad if you spec into a tree that doesn't necessarily improve it.
