Warrior’s Melee Damage Bonus Effect
Of course we have the base damage increase to Melee weapons, only last on it’s list due to the fact there are only two melee specific traits and the other, Rapid Strike, has benefits besides increased DPS to consider. Like the Ranged damage buff, Mind’s Eye, maxing this out once you have Executioner and Kingslayer maxed out, you can deal some pretty high damage numbers.
With the release of Subject 2923, melee weapons were changed to apply weak spot damage, but at a significantly reduced amount, bonus wise, than their ranged counterparts. While this allows you to take some advantage of stacking bonuses, it still doesn’t help with the fact its probably hard to hit a lot of weak spots in melee.
How to Find the Warrior Trait
Warrior is unlocked via the Ward 13 vendor Ace for those choosing the Scrapper class. For the other classes, players will have to find the random event, A Tale of Two Liz’s on Earth in either Story or Adventure Mode. You will find this in an area called Land’s End, connected via The Warren, and inside you will be tasked with defending two sisters from several waves of enemies. Saving at least one sister will unlock the Warrior trait, however saving both gets you a key that leads to receiving the Chicago Typewriter.
