  1. This class mod does not add “melee damage” to your weapons damage, and therefor doesn’t really turn every weapon into a facepuncher. It adds 10% bonus damage that gets increased by melee mayhem scaling and passive melee damage bonuses from skills, artifacts, annointments etc, but won’t activate any melee artifacts like the White Elephant, Knife Drain, Cut Purse, etc or skills/annointments that are activated by melee kills or dealing melee damage like Ebb and Flow, Jab Cross, “melee attacks have chance to activate terror” annoitment, etc. It’s disappointing that it doesn’t work like many of us had hope upon reading the item card, especially when hearing about it weeks before the game mode was released, but in practice it has the potential to be amara’s highest damage class mod.
