Pirates are Sand Pirate units in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. They wear standard sand pirate clothing, albeit with minor differences; some wear face mask, some tri-pointed hats, some have peg-legs, etc.
Pirates typically fill the role of a basic sand pirate infantry unit equipped with small arms (pistols and SMGs) which sometimes can have an elemental damage effect. They are rarely equipped with shields, therefore making incendiary weapons very effective against them. In combat, they will often zig-zag to do combat-rolls in order to avoid incoming fire. They will often hide behind whatever cover is nearby.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Violent Pirate, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Sadistic Pirate.
