Cursed Pirates are rare front line pirates in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. These undead parodies of humanity have a skeletal appearance and are known to leech life from the living in order to sustain themselves.



Cursed Pirates have a deceptively high amount of health, despite initially appearing with only half of their maximum health. They rush their enemies at a fast run, and their melee attacks can drain their enemies' health and add it to their own.


  • Killing a cursed pirate contributes to the Land Lubber challenge in the Pirate's Booty challenge list.
  • Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
