The Stingray is a small one-man hover vehicle with a front-mounted laser and a rear turret that can be set as a flak cannon, or a cryo-rocket launcher. The Flak Cannon deals explosive damage and shoots one projectile which splits into three. The split projectiles follow the player's crosshair. The cryo rocket simply follows the crosshair and deals cryo damage.

The Stingray can seat one person and can then also be used by an adjacent Vault Hunter to digistruct another. Up to four Stingrays can be present at the same time.

The Stingray has a boost capability that when triggered will allow it a temporary vertical thrust to gain altitude for a few seconds. This can assist with making long jumps or lifting over low-lying obstructions. The burst is quickly depleted and cannot be triggered again until the Stingray has descended back to its normal hovering level.

Once airborne, the Stingray can also perform an attack similar to a gravity slam, smashing anything below it.

Stingrays are said to be old technologies of the Dahl corporation, that Moxxi had tampered with to allow the hover-bike to jump in the air by using its boost. Dahl, seeing this as a welcome improvement, stole the design and never gave Moxxi credit before leaving Elpis. Janey Springs unlocks the vehicle in the Moon Zoomy when the scrambler she offers uploads the design to all stations.



The following skins are available for the Stingray, either by default or through finding them in lootable objects or from enemy drops.  Once one character unlocks a skin, it is available for all characters.  There are 69 total skins available.

Note: Stingray skins will not begin dropping until the Stingray has first been unlocked in Normal mode.
