“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Badass Scavs are the badass version of Scav enemies, with increased health and damage output. They have an enclosed metal faceplate acting as a helmet, which cannot be shattered, unlike regular Scav units.
As with other Badass units, these enemies will be more difficult to take down than their non-Badass versions. Badass Scavs have what appears to be a shoulder-mounted rocket launcher, but these appear to be decorative only. Even when equipped with jetpacks, Badass Scavs are yet to be observed actually using them.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Super Badass Scav, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Ultimate Badass Scav.
