As it says looking for the best recommendations as I'm finding him a challenge, doesn't take many hits to put me in trouble (and he seems to be able to hit me when I'm cloaked), the tactic I'm using is roll and hit him with my shotgun when possible.
Thanks in advance

If your good at the game, any shield will do, ones with a really low recharge delay like 3 or 2.85. Also, adding perks that can help you take less damage will help as well.

I just beat Nim yesterday and I think it is easiest if you are using a shield with a very low recharge, i was using one with a 2.7 recharge. Also you might try using a BMG in the fight it makes it a lot easier since you can run around while it is locked on to Nim and also you can use it to heal your shield and never have to worry about running out of ammo.

My shield recharge is 9.6, so I guess that isn't helping me.

Respark is usually a good bet. The faster your shield regens the better, and the high capacity shields usually have a long delay and pretty poor shield regen (10%-40% after 10 secs!).

Get a respark sheild it has a 3 second delay or better also a bmg as a backup weapon helps.. When he hits you pull ur bmg for fast healing. In phase 3 of the fight get behind a pillar to aviod his area attack.

most importantly i suggest using a BMG and a shotgun, shotgun him when hes close unless he hits u also roll alot, and yes respark is the best

use a respek shield against him, also find a decent combat shotgun (works a treat against him) the first faze is the hardest part so jus run, duck an roll while blasting the crap into him an you'll be fine. Only bother cloaking when your shield is gone an health is low just to get you back up to fighting standards

ok so i beat nim using a shield with a 3 second delay. i was only using a bmg and a pistol which was a single shot. it took me 2hrs and i didnt die. i beat him and i think im the only one who just used a pistol and nothing else. i figure if you use a bigger gun you have a smaller pistol.----- LOL

2hrs? holy crap, I hope the heck I dont get a dc from server like I did with Cronk...that just sucked, had to abandon an redue. heck that whole mission I had to abandon an redue like 6 times or more...lost count, lol

If you don't have a BMG replenishing it on the fly, then yes.

cloak wasnt very useful aginist him i used overpower an beat him in 3trys just took a couple of gun agustments but i think decoy would be good vrs him , i ended with pumpshot gun an ground pounder also used hiding behind pillers an rolling to keep sheild full an i used a respark same 1 im still using , escape artist perk has always helped me alot threw out the whole game to sheild breaks u run like the wind an a respark starts filling back up also adds being able to run super fast not get hit an land a few shotgun hits , round3 when there was like 8 of him overpower/ground pounder droped them quick

when nim did that i actually felt sorry for vb as i watched him fall...he was arrogant, a little bit too brash with the ladies but he didnt deserve to go out like that :(

id have to, havent beat the game yet, so i wouldnt say id assume lol, and i dont think vb is made out of rubber so i dont think he'll bounce when he hits the ground, cuz he drops straight done with nothing to grab on to, so yeah i feel bad for vb, its not the fall thatll kill ya, its the sudden stop lol

any shield will do. however i suggest you use the spanner to defeat him.

don't need shields on nim.. easily defeated without taking a single hit

You never run out of ammo, there are instant ammo caches on the ground.
Use a respark.
Use the following perks Thick Skinned, Fortitude, Regeneration, Cellular Armor. Thick skinned will give you 3 hits instead of 2 from that dash attack.
If he's still hard, use Overpower it makes him considerably easier.

3 second recharge shield with the perk that gives you 50% damage reduction for 3 seconds while your shields are down = win.
