“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Badass Fire Crawlers are similar in color to the Bursting Scythids but slightly bigger, and significantly tougher. Slow for a scythid, this badass enemy will move into range and begin bombarding their victim with a torrent of 6-10 fireballs with a limited splash radius. This attack pattern can be deadly, as once it starts, it will not stop until finished and if the intended victim tries to out-range the bombardment, the Burning Crawler will just cast them farther.
Automatic gunfire or repeated shotgun blasts are an effective method of dispatching them. Due to the lethality of their ranged attack, large target profile, and vulnerability to gunfire, they should be considered priority targets.
