  • Blood Bath can also be activated by killing an enemy with E-tech shotguns, Tediore reloads, small-scale explosions such as those from the Dart or Spiker, and the initial explosion from a Nova Shield.
    • The Avenger's reload can activate this skill even if a bullet gets the kill.
    • An explosion caused by a Dart or Spiker may not proc Bloodbath; due to the somewhat random behavior of this it is believed to be a glitch. The most reproducible way of causing this is if a shielded enemy is killed with part of their shield remaining when a lethal damage instance is applied.
  • The effect also applies to Light the Fuse.
  • The skill is also activated by killing an enemy with Buzz Axe Bombardier.
  • Enemies killed with the Bloodsplosion nova effect will also apply this effect.
  • Grenade strategies can be implemented with this skill using the increased drop rate effect.
  • Weapons that deal explosive damage can be used to exploit this skill because killing an enemy with it will always proc Bloodbath and it receives the damage increase from the skill.
