Playstyle

Amara has a few distinct playstyles available to her but whichever way you decide to take her, she’s effective at dealing out Elemental damage, what with being Borderlands 3’s Siren. If you’re looking to melee your way through enemies, look no further than Builds that use the Phaseslam Action Skill. Alternatively, Phasegrasp can help you control the battlefield by locking enemies down and spreading Elemental damage all over the place.
