“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
VIP 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. These ones in particular are professionals among these gangs, regarded as expert engineers and thieves. They serve as combat experts and heavy infantry for the various Looter factions.
Much like the Children of the Vault's Badass Tinks, VIP Bookies are the Badass variant of their archetype, armed with medium weaponry and a larger health pool. Much like Badass Tinks, they will cockily engage their opponents without seeking cover and often toss a cluster of dynamite to scatter their opponents. Most notably, Bookies are also capable of diving into scrap piles and create a Badass Bookie Turret to provide heavy defensive support for them and their allies.
