“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
“THE #4 RANKED BADASS ON PANDORA LIVES HERE, HIS NAME’S PYRO PETE, AND HE -- HUGE COINCIDENCE! -- KIDNAPPED ONE OF THE FREELANCE SPONSORS AROUND HERE JUST A DAY AGO. YOU SHOULD GO KILL HIM AND MEET HIM BUT NOT IN THAT ORDER.”
- Mr. Torgue radioing the Vault Hunters on Pyro Pete
Pyro Pete is the first main storyline boss of Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. Pete's fire theme defines his armaments - he carries large dual flame throwers with him into battle, consisting of a fuel pack on his back and spray nozzles in each hand.
After being betrayed by Piston and dragged out of the Arena, the Vault Hunters are asked to find a new sponsor so they can continue participating in the Campaign of Carnage. Mr. Torgue hints that Pyro Pete kidnapped a sponsor (who was revealed to be Moxxi), spurring the Vault Hunters to head off to the rescue. After a fight in Pyro Pete's Bar, they then descend to a basement arena to face him in an attempt to reach the imprisoned sponsor and move up on the badass leader board.
