“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Needle Stalker is arguably the standard variant of stalker. Needle Stalkers tend to stay at a distance and fling spikes from their tails. If forced into close range, they will claw and bite at their enemy, however these attacks are rather weak. On True Vault Hunter Mode, their spikes become grenades which explode after a short delay, dealing additional explosive damage.
In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, they are only encountered in Research and Development.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Nitro Stalker, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Clash Stalker.
