Can only be leveled past 5 with Legendary Mechromancer and Legendary Roboteer class mods.


  • Up to five extra ranks (+5) can be obtained from the skill bonuses of Legendary Mechromancer and Legendary Roboteer class mods.
  • Legendary Mechromancer class mods also provide their own additional bonus to action skill cooldown rate. All cooldown modifiers are summed together as bonuses in the function T = baseTime / (1 + bonuses), regardless of their source (e.g. skill, relic, mod, and a friendly Siren wearing a Binder class mod).


  • The skill's name is a reference to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, where one of the main characters, Rainbow Dash, arbitrarily notes that "[her dress] needs to be about 20% cooler." This has since become a meme among fans.
