Badass Knights are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. They are larger, tougher versions of the more common Knight.



Badass Knights are heavily armored and wield both a large claymore sword and a tower shield. In addition to this they have high health and damage output. Since they are only armed with a sword, Badass Knights will move in close to hit enemies with their sword. However, sometimes they will throw their swords from a distance. Also, they will sometimes perform a leaping attack with their sword, jumping great distances to smash their sword onto their target.

The large tower shield they carry deflects gunfire and is impervious to frontal assault.



  • Badass knights have the Bloodshot symbol painted on the front of their shields.
  • The most common critical spot, much like every other Knight, is actually their buttocks.
