Badass Spiderant Zappers like to fight up close and personal. Zappers lack both the shockwave melee and small projectile attack that the other Badass Spiderants possess. They will launch electrical blasts at distant targets which are highly effective against shields. They also have a much more smaller abdomen compared to the other Badass Spiderants, making them slightly harder to harm. Critical hits can still be achieved by aiming at spiderant's "crown".
In Playthrough 2 they are renamed BadMutha Shocker, and in Playthrough 2.5 they are renamed SuperBad Fulminator.
