“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Shotgun Midgets are diminutive bandits armed with shotguns. They are a rare sight among the bandits, but are notable with their large heads and small bodies, and are otherwise garbed the same as a Marauder.
Shotgun Midgets jog towards their targets to reach a close enough range to be effective with their shotguns. After firing a shot however, they will be blasted backwards by the recoil, and into a seated position from which they struggle to arise. Shotgun Midgets sometimes seek cover, but more frequently they simply rely on their small stature to avoid being hit while they crouch and reload.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Angry Shotgun Midget, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Boomstick Midget.
