“Look out everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Badass Rakk come in the usual array of fire, shock, and corrosive and like all badass enemies, these creatures have a high amount of health. Unlike regular varieties of rakk, Badass Rakk will swoop down near their prey, and begin bombardment with elemental projectiles instead of using the normal dive and slash attack pattern. The power of these elemental attacks combined with the high amount of health and supreme manueverability afforded these flying monstrosities make them extremely dangerous, especially the fire and shock types. Killing Badass Rakk may or may not result in elemental Artifact being dropped, but rarely will anything else fall out of the sky. There is a guaranteed spawning point for Badass Rakk in the Rust Commons West.
