A pair of Rakk.

Rakk are flying creatures found in the game Borderlands. They are similar to bats, with leathery bodies and a lack of feathers. Instead of beaks, they have a flat, fleshy head ending with a pointed snout, with a brightly colored, bony plate on the top, and hooked barbs lining their slit-like mouth. Rakk do not have any lower limbs. Instead, they have a set of curved, razor-sharp talons upon a flexible tail that they use to attach themselves to rocky surfaces. Rakk are carnivorous and extremely agile, using their speed as an advantage against prey. However, a few shots from most guns can kill them. This makes shotguns very effective, as the multiple projectiles can kill a flock in one shot in close range.


Their are multiple variants of Rakk. The following table includes all variants.
