“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Heavy Gunners are armed with dual multi-purpose guns on their arms. They can also attack with a devastating rocket fire barrage. They can leap into the air to rapidly close in onto their targets. They are the only Maliwan Heavy that lacks an element.
The pack on a Heavy Gunner's back is his weak point. Unlike other Maliwan Heavies, the Heavy Gunner's pack cannot explode but concentrated fire on their pack will interrupt the vast majority of attacks. Heavy Gunners cannot fire a rocket barrage while their pack is being shot, giving characters an easy way to deal with their attacks.
- There exists a dark variant of the Heavy Trooper that can be found serving General Traunt on Nekrotafeyo or on the Slaughterstar 3000. Aside from their name and color scheme, they are functionally the same as their basic counterparts.
- In Mayhem Mode and True Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Aggressive Heavyweight.
