So, love him or hate him... doesn't matter, but Krieg's Action skill DOES appear to be... broken.
It says very plainly on Buzz Axe Rampage (BXR henceforth) that...
Your Melee Damage and Movement Speed is ncreased. Killing an enemy instantly refills your health. taking damage accelerates cooldown recharge. Melee Damage: 500% Cooldown: 120 Seconds
Now, let's say that Krieg's base melee damage at level 1 is 10 points. Using the BXR skill should result in damage equal to 50 points of damage (10x500%=50)
Conversely the Rapier lists its melee damage as being 250%. So with all things equal it would do 25 points of damage (10x250%=25)
This is the basis for the argument that there's something wrong. When Bahroo and Wolf tested BXR vs. the Rapier the results showed the Rapier outperforming on a melee attack.
So... having listed all of these truths, what could be the cause of this discrepancy? Thoughts? --- XBL GT: Ki11er Six (ONES - not L's with a space between the word) Borderlands 2 farming guides: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE35BE032DF764AEC

Yea, it's getting really old. Who cares, it'll eventually be "fixed". I'm having fun with him and hardly find myself using his action skill.
I never said that he wasn't a fun character. In fact Krieg is awesome. I'm simply curious, that is all. --- Ric Flair... The Four Horsemen are gonna have ta ride on anotha planet baby... for I have reserved this stratosphere for you and me. - Dusty Rhodes
