For the common enemy in Borderlands 3, see Marauder (Borderlands 3).

Marauders are human enemies featured in Borderlands 2. They typically fill the role of a basic bandit infantry unit equipped with small arms.

Common Marauders

  • Marauder – Basic marauders rarely use shields, therefore making incendiary weapons very effective against them. They mainly carry pistols which will occasionally have an Elemental Damage effect. Sometimes, a marauder will pull out a knife and charge in close for a melee attack, similar to a psycho. They wear standard bandit clothing, albeit with minor differences based upon which clan they are from. Some wear sheets on their heads instead of the usual bandit masks. In True Vault Hunter and Ultimate Vault Hunter modes, they can use shotguns.

    Basic Marauders have different names for each difficulty level:
    • Normal Mode: Marauder
    • TVH Mode: Outlaw Marauder
    • UVH Mode: Outlaw
