Skeleton Swordsmen are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. They are lightly armored melee units that wield a sword and shield.



Skeleton Swordsman are slightly tougher counterparts to regular Skeletons. Like their weaker cousins, they wield a sword and have basic melee attacks. In addition, Skeleton Swordsmen are further equipped with a shield which they hold up at chin level to prevent direct head shots while advancing steadily. They can also enter an enraged mode where they will charge towards the foe without care of safety, and end it with a leaping attack. Due to their bony profile, Skeleton Swordsmen can be difficult to target, especially below the ribcage. They are resistant to incendiary attacks but are vulnerable to corrosive damage.


  • Skeleton Swordsmen have different names for each difficulty level:
    • Normal Mode: Skeleton Swordsman
    • TVHM: Skeleton Warrior
    • UVHM: Skeleton Gladiator
  • Destroying a Skeleton Swordsman contributes to the Bone Breaker challenge in the challenge list.
