Psychos are deranged maniacs commonly armed with buzz-axes and grenades. They are a frequent sight among bandits, and usually provide the front line of any hostile bandit group.

Psycho Enemies

  • Psycho - Has cargo pants instead of orange pants and occasionally sports rudimentary armor or tattoos, otherwise they look exactly the same as the Psychos from Borderlands. They also function in exactly the same way, except they do not perform a suicide charge when their health gets low and they will occasionally combat roll their way out of the line of fire. They can appear in fur hats and possess purplish skin as Freezing Psychos, with a mining light and pickaxe as Psycho Miners, or with pirate attire as Pillagers in Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty. Psycho midgets appear as well.
  • Suicide Psycho - These psychos are easily identified by their blue mohawks and blood-stained skin. When they spot a Vault Hunter, they will lift a grenade over their heads and make a mad dash towards the nearest one. Once they get close, they detonate the grenade, blowing themselves up and dealing extreme damage to anything nearby. If however, they cannot get close, they will simply throw grenades like a normal enemy. If shot on the grenade carrying hand (the one raised), they will drop the grenade. When this happens, they stop, and simply take out another grenade and continue attacking. If they are killed before they get close, they drop a live grenade which blows up after a few seconds. They also have a midget variety.
  • Burning Psycho - Behaves very similar to a regular Psychos, except that they have red skin and wear a flaming skull mask. In addition to swiping with their flaming axes, they can breathe fire at targets as well. Their attacks also have a chance to set things on fire. Also, unlike in the first game, they are not immune to fire damage. They too have a midget variety.
  • Slagged Psycho - Psychos that appear similar to regular ones, save that they are Eridium purple and slightly more emaciated looking. They can inflict Slag with each melee swipe and have the ability to vomit Slag goop on their targets as well. Once killed, they corpse will burst in Slag that will affect anyone nearby. Despite their frail appearance, they are actually tougher than the standard psycho. Slagged Psychos are most common in Eridium Blight.
  • Midget Boner - Smash Head's midget allies. They are only found in The Fridge in Normal Mode, but also appear sparingly in Lynchwood in True Vault Hunter Mode.
  • Armored Maniac - Psychos that wear pieces of old Crimson Lance armor, and as such are substantially tougher and stronger than regular psychos. Because of their armor, they are classified as armored foes and take almost no damage from elemental attacks, save corrosive attacks. They appear during True Vault Hunter Mode, and Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.
  • Gravedigger - Psychos that attack with a shovel and throw corrosive Skulls. They only appear during True Vault Hunter Mode or higher.

Badasses

  • Badass Psycho - Very large, surprisingly fast psychos that can inflict heavy damage. Otherwise act the same as regular psychos.
  • Chubby Midget - One of the chubbies in Borderlands 2, and is rumored to by the most rarest out of them all. Much slower than regular psychos, but to compensate they have more health and deal substantially more damage. They also drop a ton of loot when killed and have a chance to drop some very rare loot.
  • Loot Midget Psycho - The Loot Midget Psycho is a very, "strange" loot midget, and unlike most other ones, it will spawn naturally, it is just a very rare chance, it still has the same drop pool as normal loot midgets do though, loot midget goliaths, rats, and nomads share a similar spawning type with the loot midget psycho.

Appearances

Strategy

Psychos charge into battle to swing their buzz-axes at targets when they reach melee range. When hurt, they will occasionally roll their way out of the line of fire. Hitting a psycho on the feet causes them to trip and fall back giving time to inflict extra damage on the psycho until it recovers.
