A Badass is an elite version of a regular enemy.  In addition to having the word "Badass" preceding their names, they can also be distinguished by their glowing eyes, increased size and other artistic deviations like spiked armor.

They are tougher than normal enemies and can absorb larger amounts of damage than regular foes. Unlike regular creatures, non-human badass variants frequently have an extra elemental property associated with them, such as fire or corrosive damage. Badass creatures often have extra attacks related to their element as well.

Although they are much harder to kill, the experience they give and the above average loot they can drop generally makes killing a badass more rewarding than killing regular foes.


Upon beginning a second playthrough, Badasses will be replaced by the considerably more powerful BadMuthas.
