Pyro Pete's Bar is one of the arenas in the Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage DLC. It is only accessible by traveling through The Beatdown.


During the storyline, players are forced to fight through drunken brawlers inside the bar, which includes Torgue engineers, rats, and bandits. As the battle progresses, Badass Enforcers will join the fray, and they must be eliminated. After that, players can move on to take down Pyro Pete, the fourth place contender in the Campaign of Carnage.

The bar brawl missions can then be repeated in tier 2 and tier 3 difficulties. Completing the third tier opens access to Tier 3 Rematch: Bar Room Blitz, which can be repeated endlessly for a reward of experience points and 20 Torgue Tokens each time. Players can also defeat the upgraded version of Pyro Pete, Pete the Invincible, once the main storyline is completed.

Notable Enemies[]



  • An additional arena battle was planned for the area but ultimately scrapped. Unused dialog from Mr. Torgue reveals that the battle would have been titled "Rat Killer", and would have taken place in what eventually became Pete's arena. The fight would have pitted players against various rats on the upper levels of the scaffolding, and also would have challenged them not to fall into the main arena below. Remnants of this can still be seen in the arena area, including areas of scaffolding containing ammo boxes which are inaccessible without use of grenade jumping or other tricks.
  • When the area is populated with enemies, the action theme for Wildlife Exploitation Preserve will play; when the area is devoid of hostiles, however, the background music for Bloodshot Stronghold will play instead.
  • Above the entrance to the barroom is a leaderboard displaying the top ten Badasses. Prior to defeating Pyro Pete, the first half of the board reads: Piston, Fly Boy, Motor Mama, Pyro Pete, Vault Hunter. The second half will change every few minutes; the pool of names for this half include: Biker Mike, Maniac, Skullcrusher, Stokeslahoma, Thadicus Rex, and The Iron Trousers (the name followed by a stylized version of "3--->", an emoticon penis).
