The “I actually play the game” build. Because judging by most of the damnation builds posted here, that is clearly not the case.
The Gorgonum Stubber is an amazing ranged weapon and works extremely well up to and including HI-STG Damnation. It goes without saying that it decimates hordes, but if there's no Veteran on the team and a lot of competition for ammo, be a little more ammo conscious and ease up on the trigger and prioritize your targets. It works great for taking out specialists even at long ranges, just tap fire it.
The melee does not have to be the Latrine Shovel, but it is my weapon of choice. Feel free to swap it out for another melee that has decent horde clear but mainly has the ability to deal with armor. Confident Strike is mandatory on all Ogryn melee weapons, doesn't matter if you're following this guide or not, or using Smash 'Em Good / Best Form of Defence.
The Curio perks are listed in order of importance and doesn't have to be followed to a tee, don't sweat it too much if you don't have the holy grail(s), though +HP as the main blessing on all three is mandatory if you ask me. You can avoid most of the damage but keep in mind that HP is a resource too and there's lots of healing to go around on the average run. You simply get a lot more bang for your buck with more health instead of (with +Toughness curios) being able to tank one more bullet before your Toughness is depleted.
It's also worth mentioning that these curios are pretty much what you'd want to have no matter the build.
