“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Psycho Miners charge to get into melee range with their intended victims, but are also capable of zig-zagging through terrain or performing combat rolls to avoid weapon fire. When within melee range they use the pickaxe they carry to perform an overhand strike which is typically with a double swing pattern, followed by a pause after the second attack. If they can't find a path to get within leaping range, they stop and attack by throwing pickaxes at their targets. Pickaxes always respawn after being thrown, enabling the Psycho Miners to continue attacking. They will not be deterred by attacks from Vault Hunters and will continue to melee attack their target at close range until they are either killed or damaged to near death.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Maniac Miner, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Lunatic Miner
