Badass Powerhouse Heavies are a tougher version of the Powerhouse Heavy, are resistant to shock damage and attack with shock damage.
Flame and shock weapons are recommended in fighting a Badass Powerhouse Heavy as they will always spawn with a shield. The pack on the Heavy's back is its weak point. Well placed shots will not only stun the Powerhouse for a couple of seconds, but will also release electric shocks like a shock barrel. When damaged enough, this will cause them to explode. This explosion can inflict considerable damage to any nearby enemies caught by the blast and leave behind a lingering pool of electricity for a few moments.
