  • "A MILLION BUCKS?! Alright boys this is Captain Flynt, I want you to find that vault hunter and bring him to me NOW!!"
  • "DAMMIT!!! *Brief heavy breathing* This ain't over grinder!"
  • "Here's what's going to happen Vault Hunter - my first mate Boom Bewm is gonna kill ya, Jack's gonna pay us, and I'm going to play hopscotch in your chest-cavity."
  • "Captain Flynt again, asking if any of you has seen my Claptrap unit. Little bastard escaped a few months back. I've had to use Heaton as my back-up torture doll. (sigh) Just ain't the same."
  • "At the sound of Heaton screaming for his life, it will be 2:30."
  • "See you again at 2:35!"
  • "A couple of you have asked me why I keep playing these pre-recorded messages on a loop. Well, I've got a great answer for you - a red hot poker to the eye! Isn't that right, Claptrap?"
  • "That's Captain Flynt to you."
  • "Got a proposition for ya, Vault Hunter. You give up, we'll just shoot ya in the head. It'll be quick, clean, and a hell of a lot less painful than what Handsome Jack'll do to ya."
  • "It's our new torture dolls, boys, let's turn up the heat!"


  • Flynt has a chance of dropping Flynt's Tinderbox and the Thunderball Fists.
  • The front of his head is protected from critical hits by his helmet. It is possible, though difficult, to score critical hits by shooting through the gap in the visor. This is easier to do while Flynt is above his attackers, looking down at them.
  • When visiting the area after the storyline mission, Flynt can target the vault hunters from a distance as they progress through the lower areas of the ship, and will fire at them if they enter his line of sight. It is possible to snipe him from the lowest floors as he sits on his throne and to lure him onto the girders above Claptrap's lift for an easy kill.
  • According to the Bradygames strategy guide, he is the brother of the deceased Baron Flynt from Borderlands who was also the leader of a group of bandits. This is supported by an audio file saying that he is still offering a reward for the head of whoever killed Baron, adding the fact that his name wasn't a title, and calling his parents "douchebags."
  • Unlike other enemies with cutscenes, Flynt can be attacked during his own by objects such as turrets or Deathtrap.
  • Flynt has an ability to temporarily light himself on fire (which coincides with the vents on the ship spewing flames). This greatly reduces the damage he takes and reflects bullets for a short period.
  • Flynt dropped the Dog on Day 3 of the Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt.


  • Cut dialog has Captain Flynt putting a bounty on whoever killed Baron Flynt.
