“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Slasher Grawns are enemies encountered in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles expansion for Borderlands 3. They serve as enforcers and medium troopers for the Bonded cult. Like their Malech counterparts, Grawns have tongue-in-cheek and self-aware quotes in combat.
Slasher Grawns are the close combat specialists of the Bonded forces and are equipped with massive cleavers and large fleshy shields. They also possess the highest health pool of any Grawns except for Ascendant Grawn.
When engaged in combat, they will slowly advance upon their target, using their shields to protect themselves from incoming attacks until they get within melee range of the enemy. Upon reaching melee range, they will begin to slash at their target with their cleavers which deal significant damage upon each hit.
The best way to deal with this is stay at a distance and break their shield by concentrating fire on the heart-shaped growth. Once the shield has been destroyed, they are completely vulnerable, especially to incendiary weapons. However, it is worth noting that once the shield is broken, they will enter a frenzy and will start rushing at their target and swinging more rapidly and aggressively. As such, one the shield is destroyed, it is best to focus fire on them until they are killed.
