“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Badass Hodunks are armed with assault rifles, and usually attack from behind the front line of the Hodunk group. Badass Hodunks are only encountered in Hodunk Holler part of the Rotgut Distillery.
Badass Hodunks are very evasive, keep their distance, often seek cover, and can toss a grenade or two while retreating. They run from any attempt to approach them and will maintain at least a medium range while fighting. It is difficult for attackers to approach to within melee range of one if he is aware of the attacker. They will resort to melee attacks only if cornered. They are often equipped with shields, so shock element weapons will be more effective at taking them down. Once their shields have been depleted, incendiary weapons are exceptionally effective.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Super Badass Hodunk, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Ultimate Badass Hodunk
