Try changing Solvent to Fist of the Crucible. I find chaining combos back to back ends up working better than Solvent on tougher enemies. And its pretty easy to keep the stack size up, making it deep decent damage. But it's still reliable on melee detonating, but that's kind of the class. 


I was thinking of this. maybe my issue is the fact that his primers and melee detobator is the class. Im killing it with interceptor but man i love the big guy

I play collosus to and had those issues to begin with. My eureka moment was when I realised shield ramming has no cooldown and staggers foes. Ram a foe, let go of movement, sprint again... Can push foes into cover then trample them, they can't shoot when staggered, can also damage shields and save ammo for health.

 

Can also fly to ram faster than sprinting and to swat hovering foes from the sky. Used to be able to do this to storms but they got stealth patched (need to chip their shield down first before raming) Can still do it to scar hunters.

 

Collosus shield also has fastest base recharge but needs to be stowed so trick is to only use it when you need it... I toggle like mad now while running wild bowling foes down to disrupt the enemy and help the team deal damage. Collosus is the stagger master!

 

My only criticism is the auto and GL weapons don't deal significant damage... I have to buff with acid and battle cry. You're right that his damage comes from combo aoe... Wish the guns get buffed to make more builds viable.

One of the guns I still have never seen as a legendary. Never seen 2 colossus abilities, 4 cannons/launchers, or 6 components. But i do have 3 legendary amulet of winters for the storm I've never even loaded in the forge.

There is no point to use best defense over solvent green because you lost a lot of combo damage not to mention the damage buff and its DPS also better I think and you can also prime.     Just use the grenade launcher for heal . You can set your armor full withing a few sec any time you want after a bit of practice no cd etc.    Anything is better than the best defense.

 

Also I see a lot of colossus use the shield pulse while the other support ability is much better +30%dmg.

 

I have just soloed the TOS GM3 first chest (because nobody joined) with solvent green+volatic setup.   I doubt I could have done this with best defense without falling asleep because the damage is so low with that.

Voltaic Dome, Solvent Green, Ralners, Demolition Tribute & high armour.

What else can match this?

Break shields with either sheild bash or ground slam, freeze combo, fire combo, freeze combo, etc.

Only tough enemies survive one or two combos, but even Legendarys are stun locked.

Looks like an awesome build.

The above posts are exactly what i mean. every other build ive tried does not match up to voltaic/solvent. and for me i have legendary overdrive component and my combos are nuts.
Always been a huge flak cannon guy in games, and Titans Hail fits the colossus so well. but neither are dets.
-I feel like there needs to be a buff to all non detanator builds accross the board.
Im tempted to just go double primers to help those interceptors out in the group.
-but a detanator flak cannon would go great with voltaic...
