The Bandit Technical is a vehicle employed by bandits in Borderlands 2 and is found in The Dust. Ellie builds this vehicle for the Vault hunters out of salvage from destroyed bandit Technicals, after which it becomes available for Digistruction at any Catch-a-Ride station. Sporting a machine gun on the hull for the driver's use, the Bandit Technical also has a top-mounted pintle turret armed with either a saw blade launcher, or an explosive barrel catapult.
If there is no player to crew the gunner seat, the driver can operate the saw blade launcher in its primary fire mode, which will fire blades one at a time. The disc-shaped blades are oriented horizontally, much like a thrown frisbee. These discs will rebound off of the first hard surface they hit. However, when there is a player in the gunner seat, primary fire will launch three horizontal blades at once. The gunner can also trigger the secondary fire mode, which will throw the discs on a vertical orientation (like wheels), which strike the ground and roll forward in a straight line following the contours of the landscape. The secondary fire mode make engaging ground-based targets easier, as the discs follow the countours of the ground thus eliminating the need for up/down aiming. Both attacks deal the same amount of damage to any foe struck by the sawblades, which will be visible sticking out of any target that is hit.
The barrel catapult launcher is a mechanical throwing arm that hurls explosive barrels that explode on impact, with the entire assembly mounted on the rotating turret. After each barrel is thrown, a new barrel automatically Digistructs in its place, therefore reloading the catapult. It only has a single fire mode, and the barrels arc with gravity, necessitating some skill on the gunner's part to compensate for gravity, and to lead moving targets. However, it causes heavy damage with a significant splash damage radius.
The Bandit Technical is a significantly more durable alternative to the Outrunner, and importantly, it can carry the entire party of four players at once. Aside from the driver and gunner, two additional characters can sit in the rear truck bed, and can fire their conventional on-foot weaponry while on board. It is, however, significantly slower and less agile than the Outrunner.
*The name "technical" comes from real-life improvised fighting vehicles of the same name.
- The sawblade launcher appears to be treated as a melee attack, and benefits from Roid shield damage. Having an active Love Thumper shield (with the shield depleted to zero) equipped results in the driver/gunner giving off rapid explosions each time a sawblade hits an enemy, which can provide even more supplementary close range damage.
- The skin "True Turquoise" for the Bandit Technical depicts Lilith in a pink bikini, on the front and the back of the car.
