Badass Boils are large, Infected enemies, encountered occasionally among the other infected enemies in Veins of Helios.



Badass Boils will charge their targets and primarily attack with melee attacks, but will also rip off their large red boils and throw them at Vault Hunters. After all three have been thrown, the Badass Boil will stand still for a few seconds while the boils regenerate.

Psychotic Badass Boil and Raving Badass Boil fling wrenches and boils at the enemy. Although they can wield an assault rifle or a similar weapon they haven't been observed actually firing them.
