The Better Half is a tier 2 skill in Gaige's Best Friends Forever skill tree. It applies a fire rate increase after Gaige's equipped weapon has exhausted half of its magazine.


  • Fire Rate: +12% per level
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Fire Rate +12%+24%+36%+48%+60%
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Fire Rate +72%+84%+96%+108%+120%+132%

Can only leveled past 5 with Jill of All Trades, Prodigy, Punk, Sweetheart, and Legendary Mechromancer class mods.


  • The Better Half does not seem to effect Vladof Infinity whatsoever. The game concludes "half" to be rounded to 0, not 1, meaning it has no effect on the Infinity.


  • The name of the skill references a euphemistic term for one's spouse.
