Backstab is a tier 3 skill in Zer0's Bloodshed skill tree. Melee attacks deal bonus damage when hitting enemies in the back.


  • Backstab Damage: +8% per level
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Damage +8% +16% +24% +32%+40%
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Damage +48% +56% +64% +72% +80%+88%

Can only leveled past 5 with Ninja and Legendary Ninja class mods.


  • Whether or not the foe is "Facing away" is determined by the foe's foot orientation; thus a walker that is walking away from you while turned around will still take backstab damage even though it's upper body is facing you, though a bandit running backwards while firing will not.
  • This skill works best while Decepti0n is active, as it provides a decoy.
