Is Krieg included in the Season Pass?
No. Gearbox clearly stated that the Season Pass only includes four campaign DLCs.
Does Krieg take damage while on fire?
Yes, the self-igniting works like the standard burn effect.
Is it beneficial to use bladed weapons?
Yes and no. Krieg has a built-in bonus. The amount of additional damage is based on his level. At level 61 and no roid shield you’ll deal more damage without a bladed gun which would give you +50% melee damage. However, a Law (unique bladed pistol; +100% melee damage) and a Rapier (unique bladed assault rifle; +200% melee damage) are still better in terms of melee damage. If you wear a roid shield even +50% melee damage weapons are better than the standard attack.
Does Silence the Voices REALLY have a 12% chance to hit yourself?
Yes, it is always and in any kind of situation a 12% chance regardless of how many points you spend, how fast you hit the attack button, what weapon you’re wielding or other sort of factor you could think of. If you don’t believe it watch this video, search the forums for the several threads about this topic or feel free to create a new thread to get the same answer as in this FAQ section.
