Slayer is a Tier One talent found in Lilith's Assassin skill tree. It increases all critical hit damage, including both weapon and melee damage.

Skill Progression

Level 1 2 3 4 5
Critical hit damage +5% +10% +15% +20% +25%

Additional levels may be acquired through the use of a Specter or Tempest class mod.

Level 6 7 8 9
Critical hit damage +30% +35% +40% +45%


  • Slayer does not actually increase the final critical hit damage by an overall +5% damage. Rather, it just adds a +12.5% of the weapon's base damage to the overall critical damage. This difference will have an effect depending on an enemy's critical zone multiplier.
