Doc Mercy is a nomad miniboss in Borderlands 2, located in Three Horns - Valley.


Doc Mercy begins using an E-tech weapon and when Dr. Zed learns of bodies turning up riddled with bullet holes, but with no bullets in them, he offers a mission to uncover Mercy's involvement. Doc Mercy is enraged by this and does not hesitate to open fire, but was ultimately killed with Zed uncovering his secret.
