“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Bike vehicles feature as enemies in the Borderlands 2 DLC, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. The bike is a motorcycle with a sidecar attached. Each one has a front mounted weapon that defines which type of bike it is, and a sidecar. The rider operates the forward weapon, while the rear-facing pillion passenger is free to use small arms. The small size of these vehicles ensures that their ramming damage is relatively low for a vehicle. Targets can be pushed around and hurt, but impacts are survivable.
The boom bike is armed with a forward firing rocket launcher. This weapon fires a salvo of three rockets with every shot and is slow to reload.
The grinder bike has a ram plate affixed to the front and is ridden right up to targets to initiate melee attacks. Against a stationary target vehicle these blades will continue to worry the structure of the target while the two vehicles are locked together.
The road gunner comes equipped with a vehicular shotgun. The weapon operates in the same manner as personal shotguns, and has a fairly inaccurate spread of buckshot.
Motor Momma's Bike
Motor Momma's bike is a unique vehicle that has the unusual feature of a sidecar attached to each side, yet does not carry a passenger. Each sidecar is equipped with a forward-firing Gatling gun, and the bike and rider are protected by a powerful shield.
- In rare circumstances, a loose pedestrian of the same faction as a bike's riders can mount an adjacent bike if there is an unoccupied passenger space. In this manner a bike can have both a pillion passenger and a sidecar passenger.
- Destroying a bike contributes to the Bikes Destroyed challenge in the Campaign of Carnage challenge list, but does not contribute to the ...One Van Leaves challenge in the Vehicle challenge list.
