“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
VIP Armored Looters 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-heavy infantry for the various Looter factions.
Unlike their other Looter archetypes, these Looters are unique as they have no Children of the Vault equivalent. They are armed with powerful Assault Rifles and an additional Armor bar unlike the basic VIP Looter. Much like their badass equivalents, they will bombard their enemies from a distance with their heavier weaponry while slowly moving in to flush their opponents from cover while often occasionally seeking cover themselves if their opponents prove too problematic. However, unlike the Fanatic, they will, occasionally on higher difficulties, bear armor rather than shielding.
