Does the Ninja Perk affect all sneak attack damage?
Most character creation guides seem to assume that both the critical chance bonus and sneak attack damage bonus only apply for melee and unarmed, but the phrasing is ambiguous for the damage bonus (It's in a separate sentence from the phrase "when attacking with either melee or unarmed..."). Has anyone actually determined that sneak attack damage for other weapon types is completely unaffected?

It says sneak attacks criticals do 25% more damage, so I think it means Sneak Attack Crits in general.

From what I've seen throughout this game i think that a sneak attack from a weapon other than a melee weapon is still effective. Despite the weapon you use when you sneak attack its going to be a critical hit if done properly, so to answer your question, yes i do think the perks are in effect durring a sneak attack with any weapon
