“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Needler Rakks are enemies encountered in Borderlands 3.
Needler Rakk tend to stay at a distance and shoot salvos of spikes at their targets. After this initial attack, they fly up to gain altitude to swoop down and lacerate the target with tail barb. They always make two slashing runs then gain some distance for a ranged attack with spikes. During the ranged attack they hover in place and it is when they are the most vulnerable and easiest to kill.
Being fleshy targets, Needler Rakks are vulnerable to incendiary damage.
