Badass Midgets are first encountered in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx.
Badass Midgets share the diminutive stature of their brethren, but are heavily muscled and armored. Their armor includes a distinctive black horned helmet, preventing critical hits. Sufficient headshots will knock the helmet off leaving the badass midget vulnerable to critical hits. The unarmored parts of their bodies are covered in war paint and tattoos. They are much slower than other Midgets, moving only at a slow walking pace much like Bruisers, relying on their armor for defense and their combat rifles for attack. Incendiary weapons work well on them.
