Rabid Skags are tough variants of normal skags, stronger and harder to kill than many Badass enemies. They are distinguished by thick green armor, blood-stained skin, with knives and arrows sticking out of their bodies, and leave blood stains on the ground. Rabid Skags do not spawn in Normal Mode.

Due to their high attack power and unrelenting and speedy attacks, Rabid Skags can easily deplete shields and down a Vault Hunter in just a few hits at higher levels. They also have a habit of repeatedly ramming a target instead of just following, unlike other skags. Rabid Skags can be found in all areas inhabited by skags.
- Regardless of the game mode, their name remains unchanged.
