Top damage in every coop instance. Top kills in every coop instance.

Weapon Of Choice: Mass Cannon
Fires a single missile that can be manually detonated in the air to release 4 cluster bombs which deal approximately 1500 damage each WITHOUT overcharge being active. 1500x4 AOE damage. 1 round in the
clip.

Ego Power:
Overcharge. +30% damage and instant weapon reload upon use

Perks:
Time Out: +9% Ego Power Duration upon Full Reload
Explosive Onslaught: +9% Ego Power Duration on Explosive Kill
Killing Machine: +6 Second Overcharge Duration
Overload: +30% Reload Speed while Overcharge is active
Pumped Up: -15% Cooldown of Ego Power upon Full Reload
Intimidate: +75% damage to enemies who are flinching

Total Synergy:

Fire a missile, hit reload to make it explode into a cluster, boosting your ego power duration by 9%. The resulting blast will usually get a kill, giving another +9% duration to the ego power. +18% per shot, or +27% per 2 shots if it takes 2 shots to kill the enemy. (18% for 2 reloads and another 9% for the kill). The initial explosion of the missile that releases the clusters makes enemies flinch, each other bomb from the cluster get +75% damage from intimidate on top of the current +30% from overcharge. Not to mention you're reloading at +30% speed. After the fight, just fire off a few missiles and reload to trigger Pumped Up, which will cool down your ego power very quickly.

I have not been able to come up with a more synergistic build than this, other than simply stacking defensive perks. (Fortitude +225 hp, Thick Skinned -50% damage when shield breaks, effectively making fortitude give +450 hp rather than 225 since you take half dmg)

There's also bonuses on the gear itself that can also give 10% cooldown reduction on full reload. I actually had one on a purple Mass Cannon before it vanished. The only problem with Mass Cannons though, they don't get exp so you're not leveling up rocket launcher levels for even bigger bonuses. For that you need to downgrade to a regular RL and go grinding >.<

Where do you get Mass Cannon? Are they sold anywhere or only from drops/quest?
