One-Armed Bandit is enemy encountered in Borderlands 2. As the name implies, they do not have left arms, and wear shoulder guards made out of tire strips and sharp metal scraps around their arm joint to compensate.



One-Armed Bandits are a unique type of goliath. They do not wear helmets and therefore cannot be enraged, making them a much more simple fight. To offset this, they have far higher health than most variants of goliath, rivaling that of a raging badass.


  • They wear a slot machine on their back identical to those found in Sanctuary.
  • One-Armed Bandits are in and of themselves a reference to the first slot machine ever invented, nicknamed the "One-Armed Bandit".
