A Badass Orc Warlord's melee attacks are devastating and when used in rapid succession, can easily put a Vault Hunter into Fight For Your Life mode. Like all badass enemies, Badass Orc Warlords are considerably tougher than most of their brethren. Badass Orc Warlords have three basic attacks; a ground-pound attack, a leaping ground-pound attack, and an attack which involves swinging their weapon in a wide arc.
In addition to their high health and damage output, Badass Orc Warlords have armored grieves, shin guards and a single pauldron on their left shoulder. A helmet protects their head against critical hits. However, Badass Orc Warlords are vulnerable to incendiary damage.
- Unlike Warlord Turge and Warlord Grug, Badass Orc Warlords will not turn into the Duke of Ork, but they will raise their own level to become tougher.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode, Badass Orc Warlords become "Super Badass Orc Warlords."
