Orc Bashers are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. They are bulky, armored orcs that wear a distinctive horned helmet.



Orc Bashers charge at their enemies in a crazed, headlong rush. When striking a target they cause considerable damage with a pronounced knock back effect. Prior to charging, an Orc charger will paw the ground with his foot, giving a good indication of when he will attack.

Orc Bashers are armored, wearing gauntlets and a chest plate. The gauntlets are deflective, while the chest plate merely reduces damage. Unlike other orcs, the Orc Basher's helmet cannot be shot off and they are impervious to critical hits. Orc Bashers are vulnerable to incendiary damage.


Dialogue is same with all orc types.


  • Orc Bashers can be tricked into missing endlessly by circle strafing around them.
  • Orc Bashers can sometimes run backwards at the same speed as forward.
  • Orc Bashers have different names for each difficulty level:
    • Normal Mode: Orc Basher
    • TVHM: Orc Charger
    • UVHM: Orc Invader
