“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Badas Corrosive Loaders dual wield SMGs and have a large beam cannon mounted on top of their bodies. This cannon has three modes:
- corrosive stream sprayed in a straight line
- large corrosive orb which explodes on impact leaving a large puddle on the ground
- several smaller corrosive orbs in a quick succession
If enemy gets close enough, they attack with an over-the-shoulder melee with their primary weapon or with a leg kick.
They have reinforced joints to prevent their limbs from being shot off, making their optical sensor the only critical hit location. They also cannot launch grenades as both of their arms are occupied.
Badass Corrosive Loaders are very rare and do not spawn as part of regular Hyperion mobs. The first such loader, Facemelt, only spawns in Jack's Secret as part of the optional mission Acid Trip. Facemelt is immune to corrosive damage; normal and cryo weapons should be used instead.
Two more Badass Corrosive Loaders can be found in the Benediction of Pain. Unlike Facemelt, they are vulnerable to corrosive damage and always respawn.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Badass Corrosive Loader MkII.
