I thought she was supposed to ravage enemies. I’m level 52 and just got to the drakensburg and can’t hardly make it through the door. I can’t kill a badass enemy without dying 6 times. I’m specced into pistols and am using some purple level 50 gun that does almost no damage. Any tips?

Also, I’ve done all the quests I can do right now so there’s really nothing to do but die over and over trying to do the story. I’m on uvhm.

If I were doing a pistol Nisha... at level 52 my build would probably look something like this:
http://thepresequel.com/Nisha/0000000000005501150005145501010451/dradesperado,lv52

That should definitely fix any feelings of lacking in damage. Since she has so many accuracy and fire rate buffs you could consider using 'Old/Tassiter' Hyperion pistols. They're normally slower and less accurate in exchange for more damage per bullet, but with a pair of them in the hands of Nisha the damage should skyrocket.

If Badass enemies are giving you trouble, consider keeping a Cryo weapon on hand. Don't forget that aiming down your sights while Showdown is active makes you aim for critical hit spots. So a barrage from a strong Jakobs should quickly kill a frozen enemy.

Also, just because you're specced for pistols doesn't mean you can't carry other stuff too. Nisha is also ridiculously good with Maliwan beam lasers, like 'melt a room via computer hax' good.

Nice.

If you play the Claptrap DLC, btw, be on the lookout for a legendary Jakobs pistol called the Luck Cannon. Pistol Nisha is a monster with those. Normally that gun has to reload after every shot, but Nisha can give it 4 shots, and with a pair of them that's 8 shots before needing to reload.
