Badass Stabber Jabbers are insectoid enemy found in The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler, the second DLC for Borderlands 2. They are only encountered during the The Hunger Pangs mission. Badass Stabber Jabber's physical appearance is that of a Badass Varkid but unlike them, they have large wings and never fight on the ground. Their bodies are golden-colored and they have massive stingers protruding from rear of their abdomens.


In the mission, Vault Hunters must shoot three with a slagged weapon and acquire their poison filled abdomens to poison the Wattle Gobbler. These glands are said to carry a toxin deadly enough to "kill a creature the size of a planet."



Like most flying enemies, Badass Stabber Jabbers are easiest to kill with a shotgun. In combat these insects fly at their targets, much like Rakk do, except when they reach the target they stab them with their stingers. If the Vault Hunter is hit, their vision will become blurred and wavy.


  • Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.


  • The Stabber Jabbers are a reference to the Hunger Game's Tracker Jacker, in that both are wasps, both carry a hallucination-inducing venom, and both were involved with a tournament.
