  • This skill works well with Buzz Axe Bombardier and Bloodsplosion by increasing the explosive damage done by the thrown buzz axe and nova.
  • This skill works especially well with Light the Fuse by increasing damage done by the dynamite by up to 30%, or even 66% with a Flesh Crunch class mod.
    • By extension, Redeem the Soul synergizes well with this skill because it lets a player instantly revive an ally in exchange for putting themselves into Light the Fuse, which is easier to get Second Winds from by this skill.
  • This will also add a hand guard to Krieg's Buzz Axe.
