Seriously? What about a build with mostly COMMON clothing, sub-par cyberware and items, trashing the hardest opponents on VERY HARD constitutes "uber build" to you? You can beat Adam Smasher, the single hardest enemy, on the same difficulty NAKED w/o items, cyberware, quickhacks, by skillful play.Ahh yes, the "Uber build" that makes all others pale in comparison.
It may come as a shock but some people don't min-max.
Particularing in a game that claims virtually any build is viable.
Instead of accusing people of elitism because you can't hack it (pardon the pun) on harder difficulties w/o save-scummed perfect loot, I suggest you change difficulty to EASY and use smart guns if you seriously struggle as you claim.
