Suicide Skeletons are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep.



Suicide Skeletons use a suicide bomber tactic, trying to get close to a target before detonating their explosives. In addition to this final attack, Suicide Skeletons will also throw sticks of dynamite.

The Suicide Skeleton's head is a critical hit point and can withstand hits up to half their total health, whereupon their skull is destroyed. This does not necessarily kill the skeleton, as a headless skeleton will continue to fight on until destroyed. Along with most other skeletons, Suicide Skeletons are resistant to incendiary damage.


  • In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Condemned Skeleton, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Damned Skeleton.
  • Like Brittle Skeletons, Suicide Skeletons are extremely vulnerable to melee attacks (30x damage modifier), however melee attacks are arguably less useful against Suicide Skeletons as they make them explode instantly.
