For example, Headshot simply increases Critical Hit damage. Do I get this bonus on my melee attacks? What about the other skills in the sniper tree? In other places, it specifies melee or ranged attacks.

  • IIRC the first game was pretty specific about when your bonuses came into play. I would hazard a guess that if it doesn't specify, it's probably universal, but don't quote me on that. Or do, whatever, you'll just look silly for quoting an unreliable source :) – Alex Sep 18 '12 at 15:10

I'm not 100%, but I think it should. If it states it definitively in other places, then it should be a global thing, despite the name. In fact, the Borderlands Wiki seems to agree: it simply states that critical hit damage increases by 4%. Not melee, not ranged, but just critical hits. In fact, considering that Headsh0t is used in an optimal melee build, it would seem to be correct.

  • This answer suggests otherwise. Melee critical multiplier is always 2x. See also this reddit post – jw013 Aug 27 '14 at 18:11
