Reaper is the tier 4 skill in Maya's Cataclysm skill tree. Gun damage dealt to an enemy, who has more than 50% of his health remaining, deals additional damage.

Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Gun Damage +48% +56% +64% +72% +80%+88%

Can only be leveled past 5 with Binder, Fox, Legendary Binder, and Legendary Cat class mods.

Splash Damage

Unlike other Gun Damage boosts, Reaper only affects certain types of splash damage. Reaper does not affect a gun's splash damage unless the splash does not count as grenade damage and can process Blood Overdrive, but not Blood Bath.[1] Splash damage boosted by Reaper includes:

  • Maliwan sniper rifles, including the Pimpernel, but excluding Volcano and Storm
  • Hyperion/Tediore Splatguns, including the Slow Hand, but excluding the Retcher
  • Grog Nozzle
  • SWORDSPLOSION!!! (Only on the main sword)
  • Flakker
  • Cobra


  • Reaper affects all enemies who have more than 50% health remaining. This includes enemies with full health but depleted shields. As a result, shielded enemies will take the increased damage until their shields are fully depleted and their health is half depleted.
  • The damage bonus is multiplicative.
