I started a run using Fade Away tonight and I was so happy to find out that melee attacks don’t count towards the 3 shots for breaking invisibility. I got the melee gun that does more damage if you backstab (buttstab :P) enemies and it was being ridiculously fun. Run around backstabbing enemies until the Fade Away timer starts to get low, then switch to a Jakobs shotgun and get 3 huge shots.
Anybody else messing around with melee + Fade Away on FL4K?
Or finding anything interesting about how FL4K’s skills work with melee?
I hadn’t thought much about melee on FL4K because they don’t have much melee-specific about them but I’m totally rethinking things now and kinda want to try building around this. Need to find a good roid shield and a way of breaking it while in Fade Away.
Anybody know if Unblinking Eye works with melee? I’m not high enough level to try it yet but I’m really curious if it buffs melee crit damage. Or if it counts as a hit and boosts crit damage so they could do melee-melee-shotgun 3 times while invisible and always get the highest Unblinking Eye crit damage on the shotgun. I need to mess around with this. I know crit boosting skills in BL2 didn’t boost melee crits, wondering if it’s the same in BL3 or not.
