Borderlands Wiki

Grawns are enemies encountered in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles expansion for Borderlands 3. They serve as enforcers and medium troopers for the Bonded cult. Like their Malech counteparts, Grawns have tongue-in-cheek and self-aware quotes in combat.



Grawns function exactly the same way as other Medium Troopers such as Heavy Bruisers, Bruisers, Thugs, Firefight Honchos, Soldier Sergeants, and Corporate Muscles. in that they will slowly advance upon their targets whilst firing shotguns.

While they possess a much larger health pool than other Bonded, they can still be quickly disposed of by incendiary damage.

Also rather interestingly, the base variant Grawn is noticeably rarer than the other variants.
