Brittle Skeletons are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep that dual wield swords.


Brittle Skeletons are recognizable by their distinctive blue crystal bones and dual wielded swords. In combat they march into battle to deliver melee attacks.

They are tougher than basic skeleton units, and their bony profile can make them difficult to target. Their crystal bones however, give them properties that sets them apart from other skeletons, and they have a reasonable chance to reflect bullets if hit into elsewhere other than their skulls. They are highly resistant to elemental damage and vulnerable to explosives, but are highly vulnerable to melee strikes (30x damage), generally requiring only one hit to kill.


  • After being killed, Brittle Skeleton bones can be picked up from the ground like money.
  • In True Vault Hunter Mode, Brittle Skeletons become "Fractured Skeletons."
  • In Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode Brittle Skeletons become "Crystal Skeletons."
  • Rockets, gyrojets, grenade attacks, and Tediore reloads can deal damage to them without being reflected.
