Salt the Wound is a tier 4 skill in Krieg's Mania skill tree. When Krieg takes damage while his shield is down, it adds a stack of Salt the Wound to a maximum of 20. Krieg's melee damage and shotgun damage increase for every stack accumulated. Stacks decay at a constant rate of one stack per second [1].

Effects[]

  • +1.5% melee damage per rank per stack.
  • +1% shotgun damage per rank per stack.

Notes[]

  • This skill works well with Feed the Meat and Embrace the Pain, as they both keep Krieg's shields down which helps him build more stacks.
  • Krieg does not gain stacks of Salt the Wound from friendly fire damage of Fuel the Rampage.
  • The Rough Rider shield synergizes well with Salt the Wound, as it has 0 capacity, reduces damage and gives additional max health, allowing Krieg to gain potentially more stacks.
