Bear Fist =/= Melee?

I’m currently testing a Melee Moze build atm, and it’s working quite well, but I noticed that Bear Fist attacks never trigger White Elephant grenades. The melee stomp attack does, but not Bear Fist.

Does this mean that Bear Fist damage does not count as Melee? If so, is this a mistake, or is it intentional? Mildly disappointing if intentional, honestly, as it kind of goes against the theme of my build.


It has to be a mistake. The fact the weapon has “fist” in the name but doesn’t procure melee points is very likely a bug that wasn’t patched. That would be like not counting Krieg’s buzz axe kills.

Thank you mods for moving this topic for me
