  • Khel Vods have no shield and only one health bar.
  • Khel Vods have the following attacks:
    • Leap - jump toward the Vault Hunter smashing the ground when it lands
    • Rock slam - slams fist against the ground sending out line of rocks
    • Shard throw - pulls a red shard from a portal on the ground and throws it
    • Back hand - close range melee
  • Khel Vods have the ability to tear apart and eat a fallen Bonded allowing them to transform into an Empowered Khel Vod.
