This is a pretty standard UE DH speed build for bounties and T16.
You can play this with whatever element works for the drops you get it is 100% fine to play it as cold/fire/physical whatever it really does not matter.
Honestly you dont even have to go with squirts here it is most likely overkill with just decent gear and like 75+ augs on your stuff.
Some basic concepts that will help you gear this set out for T16 and bounties a bit better.
Attack speed is almost worthless.....your aim is to get your first hit high enough to trigger DML with Ambush this is not that hard if you go for stats the increase the amount you hit for. Remember if you can hit this threshold then hitting faster wont really increase your dps very much.
Area Damage again almost a worthless stat in T16 with this setup you should again be 1 shotting everything
This is a d3planner of the gear with the right rolls but to give you an idea of what we are trying to accomplish here we are going for the max amount of damage per hit we can get on each piece.
Shoulders - There are only 2 stats that can make us hit harder here and that is Dex and CDR from our captains crimson so we want to make sure we got both of those because those make our hits bigger remember we are not going after the most sheet dps we want to hit as hard as possible. Then just 2 survival stats would be best I would suggest RCR as that will help you as well with other things and life/vit/all res they all work. So your perfect shoulders would look something like this
Resource Cost Reduction
Take this line of thinking with each piece we have and it makes your choices for the speed build very easy lets do another piece of gear.
Hands - here we can take all four stats as things that will make our hits bigger. Dex/ChC/ChD/CDR all of these stats will increase the damage that each hit will be so this makes this a very easy piece to make a choice on.
The d3 planner that i linked has a full setup with 100 augs on it and while that is primal you should be able to get something like this going in the first couple of days if you really work and then you will have a char that can do anything in the game. You can even make a few adjustments and start farming 70-100 speed GRs with it.
If you find you are a bit low on dps to start I would suggest going with Multishot Wind Chill and then drop fleet footed for Cull the Weak. The really nice thing about this is that Wind Chill will apply the slow prior to doing the damage so you effectively gain Thrill of the Hunt as a free passive when you play with wind chill which will open up some more damage options for you.
You could also not run squirts and put on just a regular neck and then put in Bane of the Trapped with Cull the weak passive and wind chill and you will have similar dps and effectively double your toughness if you are struggling to stay alive. In the end squirts is only about a 14% dps upgrade over going with Cull the weak and a Bane of the trapped so it will not inhibit you all that much.
Here is the cold variant without Squirts for you to reference
It would be very easy to use this build to transition into some hyper speed like 75-90s I think once you had really good gear/gems you could prob do 80-90 in sub 2 minutes there are only a couple small changes I would make.
1. Drop Avarace/boon and pick up Soj with Powerful - This is a MASSIVE dps increase for us with elemental and elite damage with more discipline
2. Swap to Vengence Seethe - put Visage of Gunes in cube we will need some more resource regen while maintaining our toughness
3. Swap out Blood Vengence for Steady Aim solid increase to damage if played properly
This will just shred GRs It is my plan to try to take this build as far as possible and I expect to be speed farming 90-100 in sub 2 minutes with this setup. I may even mess around with throwing Squirts on and trying this speed build to see how well I can stay alive but I think without squirts it should still be a powerhouse.
There is also an option that you could roll out that was hyper dps build that I was able to farm very fast 100s with
This was actually really nice with the rockets doing a ton of dps for you. You will lose squirts buff from time to time but you will also keep it up quite a bit so you get tons of value from it. You could mess around with dropping maybe Ambush once you had really great gear because you are not going to have the slow effect on your first hit so it might be better for speeds to take Tactical Advantage I didnt really test that out.
