Can only leveled past 5 with Jill of All Trades, Prodigy, Punk, Sweetheart, and Legendary Mechromancer class mods.


  • The Better Half does not seem to effect Vladof Infinity whatsoever. The game concludes "half" to be rounded to 0, not 1, meaning it has no effect on the Infinity.


  • The name of the skill references a euphemistic term for one's spouse.
