Nomads are a type of enemy in Borderlands 2. They are slow-moving bandits sporting large shields that provide full cover while allowing the Nomad to remain mobile. Nomads appear in three variations, with one variation confirmed so far. The Nomad Torturer wields a shield with a Midget Psycho bound to the front. Players can gain a temporary ally by focusing fire on the Midget's bindings and freeing him from the shield.
