Bucaneers are Sand Pirate units in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. They are relatively slow-moving melee fighters who wield a pair of cutlasses in combat.



Bucaneers can make quite a large leaps when closing in on enemy but most times they just rush forward in a straight line, and when within melee range they unleash a series of slashing attacks with their swords. When enraged, they start making mumbling noises while clashing their cutlasses against each other making them glowing-red. When an Buccaneer is made to flinch he will stop and draw his cutlasses up to his chest. This partially shields him from attacks and causes bullets to ricochet away.


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