Archers are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. They are lightly armored knights wielding a bow and arrow.



Archers primarily attack from a distance using bows that fire arrows in a long arching trajectory. The damage output for each arrow is quite high, although this is offset by a slow rate of fire, and a slow projectile speed that makes them relatively easy to evade at long range. The arrows have a significant impact and any character sprinting towards an archer will be momentarily halted when hit by one. In close quarters, Archers will also deliver melee strikes.

Their health is not impressive and they are lightly armored, making them vulnerable to incendiary damage. They do, however, have head protection in the form of a spangenhelm cap that needs to be shot off before their heads become exposed for critical hits.


  • Archers have different names for each difficulty level:
    • Normal Mode: Archer
    • TVHM: Bowman
    • UVHM: Longbowman
