While they do leap, claw, and charge like other skags, they are far more likely to stay at a distance and spit gobs of slag followed by corrosive goo. At short range, they spray in arcing sweep over a wide area that deals a lot of damage in seconds. They try to stay away from close combat, retreating if enemies get too close. It is best to have an incendiary weapon or a strong weapon with explosive rounds.
Badass Infected Skags are a larger variant with higher health but follow the same attack patterns as their smaller cousins.
- Pizza Addicted Skag is named Badass Infected Skag which only appears near the Dahl Mine 191 entrance during The Oddest Couple mission.
