Resourceful is a tier 4 skill in Axton's Survival skill tree. It increases the cooldown rate of your Sabre Turret.


  • Cooldown Rate: +5% per level
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Cooldown Rate +5%+10%+15%+20%+25%
Level 6 7 8 9 10 11
Cooldown Rate +30%+35%+40%+45%+50%+55%

Can only be leveled past 5 with Engineer, Tactician, Legendary Engineer class mods.


  • Up to six extra ranks (+6) in Resourceful can be obtained from the Efficient Engineer and Efficient Tactician class mods, for a total of 11 ranks. At 11 ranks, turret cooldown is 27.1 seconds.
  • Engineer class mods provide a direct bonus to action skill cooldown rate. All cooldown percentage modifiers are summed together additively as bonuses in the function T = baseTime / (1 + bonuses), regardless of their source (e.g. skill, relic, mod, and a friendly Siren wearing a Binder class mod).
  • With the proper Proficiency Relic (+36.4% Cooldown Rate) and Sentry Engineer class mod (+35% Cooldown Rate, +6 Sentry, +5 Resourceful), the Sabre Turret can have a 42 second deployment with a 18.97 second cooldown, a 68.9% uptime. This is the highest uptime possible without the assistance of a Siren wearing a Binder class mod.


  • The icon for Resourceful appears as a triggered skill when reclaiming the turret, even if no points are invested in Resourceful.
