Armored Skags are heavily armored skags with a rider. Once their rider has been killed, they will adopt one of two combat methods. The first is a charge with considerable knock-back effect. The other is a spitting attack, where the skag horks large yellow balls. These balls are explosive in nature and will explode upon contact with the target or if they miss, after a few seconds. Armored Skags are vulnerable to corrosive damage.
