“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Butchers are armed with large knives or cleavers. They go in a straight line towards their intended victims seeking no cover and only rarely will flinch to the side to avoid incoming fire. Once within melee range, they unleash series of slashing blows. They will only throw their knives or cleavers when their target is in an unreachable spot or is a long distance away. One-on-one and in the open space they don't pose much of a threat but if in groups or if a Vault Hunter gets cornered, they can inflict massive damage with just one or two blows. Most times they are not equipped with shields making them very vulnerable to incendiary weapons.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Brawny Butcher, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Berserk Butcher
