Bloated Rakk are easily identified by their large size and brightly acidic-green color and lemon-yellow markings. Bloated Rakk are rarely encountered out and in the open, making their appearance usually when the hive is threatened or the flock is called. When they die, almost without fail, they will give up large amounts of cash, while occasionally they will drop orb shields and weapons, and very rarely they will drop class mods. They should be prioritized even more carefully than Feeder Rakk because of the loot they can drop.
