Reaper is the tier 4 skill in Maya's Cataclysm skill tree. Gun damage dealt to an enemy, who has more than 50% of his health remaining, deals additional damage.

Gun Damage +8% +16% +24% +32% +40%
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Gun Damage +48% +56% +64% +72% +80% +88%

Can only be leveled past 5 with Binder, Fox, Legendary Binder, and Legendary Cat class mods.


  • Unlike other gun damage boosts, Reaper does not affect a gun's splash damage unless the splash does not count as grenade damage (this can be determined on Krieg by seeing which guns can activate Blood Overdrive, but not Blood Bath[1]). Splash damage boosted by Reaper includes:
  • Also unlike other gun damage boosts, Reaper affects the amp damage of amplify shields.
  • Reaper affects all enemies who have more than 50% health remaining. This includes enemies with full health but depleted shields. As a result, shielded enemies will take the increased damage until their shields are fully depleted and their health is half depleted.
  • The damage bonus is multiplicative.
