“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
VIP Armored Bookies are enemies encountered in Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. Once crew members and visitors of the Handsome Jackpot, these people turned to pillaging and violence following the Casino's lockdown after Handsome Jack's death. They serve as medium for the various Looter factions.
Unlike their other Bookie archetypes, these Bookies are unique as they have no Children of the Vault equivalent. They are armed with a powerful Assault Rifle and an additional armor bar unlike their badass equivalents. Much like their badass equivalents, however, they will bombard their enemies from a distance with their heavier weaponry while moving in on their opponents to flush them out from cover.
