Badass Nomad is enemy encountered in Borderlands 2. They are stronger version of Nomad Taskmasters and are distinguished by spikes on their shields. Badass Nomads are only encountered in areas controlled by Bloodshot and Sawtooth clans.
Aside from using assault rifles, Badass Nomads can also unleash a powerful shield bash when in melee range. Sometimes Badass Nomads will give orders to the other bandits in the area, improving their combat effectiveness but potentially letting alert Vault Hunters prepare for the imminent shift in tactics. While issuing orders, Badaass Nomad will put his shield aside opening himself for easy shots.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Super Badass Nomad Brutalizer, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Ultimate Badass Nomad.
