Psychos are deranged maniacs commonly armed with buzz-axes and grenades. They are a frequent sight among bandits, and usually provide the front line of any hostile bandit group. They wear cargo pants instead of orange pants and occasionally sport rudimentary armor or tattoos; they otherwise look exactly the same as the Psychos from Borderlands. They also function in exactly the same way, except they do not perform a suicide charge when their health gets low and they will occasionally combat roll their way out of the line of fire. They can appear in fur hats and possess purplish skin as Freezing Psychos, with a mining light and pickaxe as Psycho Miners, or with pirate attire as Raiders in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. Psycho midgets appear as well.

Psycho Enemies






Psychos charge into battle to swing their buzz-axes at targets when they reach melee range. When hurt, they will occasionally roll their way out of the line of fire. Hitting a psycho on the feet causes them to trip and fall back giving time to inflict extra damage on the psycho until it recovers.

But two months dead, nay not so much, not two, So excellent a king, that was, to this Hyperion to a satyr, so loving to my mother That he might not beteem the wings of heaven Visit her face too roughly. Heaven and earth, Must I remember? Why, she would hang on him, As if the increase of appetite had grown By what it fed on; and yet within a month - Let me think not on't; frailty, thy name is woman - A little month, or ere these shoes were old With which she followed my poor father's body Like Niobe, all tears, why she, even she - O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason Would have mourned longer - married with my uncle, My father's brother, but no more like my father Than I to Hercules. Within a month, Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears Had left the flushing in her gall'd eyes, She married. O, most wicked speed, to post With such dexterity to incestuous sheets! It is not, nor it cannot come to good. But break my heart, for I must hold my tongue. (Too Solid Flesh soliloquy from Hamlet)
