“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
A Jet Fighter is a Dahl aircraft featured in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. They are mainly encountered in Crisis Scar, Outlands Canyon, the exterior parts of Helios Station, Outlands Spur, and the Veins of Helios. Originally brought to Elpis by Dahl, some of them remain in Legion hands (Legion Jet Fighters) while others have been stolen by scavs (Stolen Dahl Jetfighters). The only difference between the two is the vehicle skin.
They are fairly slow-moving single-seat aircraft that may be equipped with either rockets, a beam weapon, or the ability to drop bouncing mines. Some may also carry two side gunners, who can be dropped off to fight on land. They make their first appearance in Lost Legion form in the game during the mission, Lost Legion Invasion, and that form doesn't reappear until the Veins of Helios. All the others are the scav ones. Each form counts for a different Challenge.
Like any armoured vehicle, Jet Fighters are weak to corrosive weaponry. Although the pilot cannot be seen, the cockpit windows (the small panels on the nose of the aircraft) are critical hit locations. Equipping an Ack Ack Oz kit greatly increases the efficiency of any weapon against these targets, but is most useful with shotguns as its effect can stack.
