Can only leveled past 5 with Blister, Reaper, and Legendary Reaper class mods.


  • This skill works during Buzz Axe Rampage if a kill is achieved just prior to activation, but will not work when activating Release the Beast because the timer (7 seconds) will run out before hand unless a Blister, Reaper, or Legendary Reaper mod is equipped to extend it.
  • This skill will not be activated by killing an enemy with splash damage from elemental weapons, this includes Maliwan pistols, all Torgue guns and any other assault rifle that uses the Torgue barrel.
  • However, killing an enemy with a direct hit from a Torgue or Maliwan weapon will in fact activate this skill. This does not apply to assault rifles that fire miniature rockets as well as regular-sized rocket launchers.
  • The only exceptions to the previous rules are the Cobra, Maliwan sniper rifles (which have splash damage) and the Hyperion Splatgun. They can all activate this skill with splash damage or direct hit.
