Badass HOT Loaders are enemies encountered in Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC for Borderlands 3.



Badass HOT Loaders dual wield SMGs and have a large beam cannon mounted on top of their bodies. This cannon has three modes:

  • Incendiary stream sprayed in a straight line.
  • Large incendiary orb which explodes on impact leaving a large puddle on the ground.
  • Several smaller incendiary orbs in a quick succession.

If an 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 HOT Loaders are never equipped with shields and are vulnerable to corrosive damage.
