“Look out everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Rakk is a common and arguably the most frequently encountered type of the whole family, both in Borderlands and Borderlands 2. They can be seen circling in the sky waiting for something to blunder into the territory of its flock. Sometimes they can also be seen hanging upside down, preening itself with its rasp-covered mouth. Rakk do not usually drop anything when they die.
