That would be SUPER HIGH risk to a very (confusingly) relatively low reward. Still would be ridiculous. Imagine you had a mod that boosted that skill +6? You would never be able to melee anyone but yourself.

I'm kind of unclear on this ability too. When you do accidentally hit yourself, is it for your full melee damage? If you have tons of melee boosts do you end up just downing yourself in one blow sometimes by accident?
