Midget Boatswains are midget sand pirate units in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. They are rare units, and only appear in places that Anchormen can appear in.



Midget Boatswains walk into battle and use their anchors as a ranged attack over short distances to drag their victims close to them in order to initiate a series of melee attacks. When they come under fire they often stop and cross these anchors in front of themselves to form a defensive shield that reflects bullets back at their attackers.

The slow movement of the boatswain makes them relatively easy to target, but they are also quite robust units, despite being unshielded.


  • Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
