Redeem the Soul is a tier 4 skill in Krieg's Mania skill tree. It allows Krieg to instantly revive downed teammates. After reviving a teammate in this way you must Fight for your life. Increases time during Fight for your life.
Krieg can instantly revive teammates at the cost of downing himself. This will trigger Fight for your Life or Light the Fuse if points are invested in it. Fight for your life time is increased by 50%. You may only revive teammates once in this way for every recharge of Buzz-Axe Rampage.
When used in combination with Light the Fuse, this ability becomes not only a way to instantly revive allies but to allow the player to access Krieg's down-state quickly, without having to get downed by enemy fire. When combined with Release the Beast, it becomes positively lethal--players can revive an ally, achieve a second wind, activate Release the Beast, wipe out a large amount of the remaining enemies, then immediately start up Buzz-Axe Rampage if necessary to finish off anyone who's left.
Redeem the Soul functions by doing an amount of damage to the player equal to their current health, leaving them at exactly zero.
- As of the patch released on August 29, 2013, a combination of this skill and The Rough Rider no longer prevents Krieg from downing himself . Prior to this, the damage reduction from The Rough Rider applied to the above-mentioned damage. With Krieg at critical instead of zero health, Redeem the Soul and The Rough Rider synergized with Release the Beast.
