“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Ambush Stalkers attack at close range rather than use the spikes on their tails. Once within striking distance, Ambush Stalkers repeatedly assault their enemy until their shield is depleted. They have relatively weak attacks, can survive very little damage, and are physically large targets, making them the weakest stalker variant.
In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, they are only encountered in Research and Development.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Flash Stalker, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Blitz Stalker.
