What's the difference between "Override Cooldown Rate" and "Cooldown Rate"?

#1gzus_ADPosted 9/23/2012 4:17:18 PM
All this time I thought my equipped "Override Cooldown Rate" was lowering the cooldown rate for my Action Skill, but I'm not sure now since I came across another item with just "Cooldown Rate" in its description.

All I know is that the override has to do with a melee skill of sorts.

Can you give the specific wording of what it says?

You can get "mini" action skills which are called overrides
E.g axtons turret shield, salvadors "fistful of hurt"

The one with just "Cooldown Rate" says "Improves the action skill cooldown rate." Pretty straightforward.

The other relic says "Override Cooldown Rate," but it's paired with a "Melee Damage" modifier so in the description it says "Enhances melee ability."

Zeros override skill is for his melee. It says "melee override skill. While deception is active and a target is in your crosshairs, melee to dash forward a short distance and perform a special melee attack". If you are not in deception and you melee, it's the standard swipe. If you are in deception and can see the life bar, melee causes him to dash forward like a Vanguard from me3.
