Powder Monkeys are Sand Pirate units in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty.



Powder Monkeys are pirates armed with shotguns and barrel-shaped grenades. In combat, they try to keep their distance from which they throw grenades at their intended victims. They only use shotguns if the attacker gets in close. They have explosive barrels strapped to their backs, which are critical hit areas that will instantly kill the powder monkey and explode when shot. Upon detonation, the explosion will release a number of child grenades, similar to a MIRV.


  • Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
