What do the extra words next to players name and level mean?

I have a level 25 Commando who has the title Pointman. I was playing in a multiplayer game yesterday and noticed a level 24 Commando who had the title Grisly Pointman. I don't remember ever having this title at level 24. In fact, I think I have been a Pointman ever since I started.

I tried changing my skill point distribution (twice) - no effect on title.

I also have a badass rank of more than 3200, which I believe is fairly high for my level. Would this have an effect on my title?

So I'd like to know: 1) How do I get a different title? 2) If possible, does someone have a list of all the titles available?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@bwarner - Oh, good catch. I may have to move my answer over there. – SaintWacko Oct 18 '12 at 21:30

The title is taken from the classmod you have equipped. There are over 100 different titles possible, so instead of writing out the whole list here, I will link to the lists of class mods on the Borderlands 2 wiki.





Under Possible Skill Boost on that page, the word in parentheses goes before the name of the classmod, so the title of a Commando with the first mod and variant on the list would be Front Line Engineer.

That would've been the last thing I checked... Do you happen to have a list.. at least for Commando? I can't imagine this being too long a list. – deutschZuid Oct 18 '12 at 20:38
Well, there are 27 titles per class. I'll link to the wiki pages which list class mods. – SaintWacko Oct 18 '12 at 20:40

The full list of titles and prefixes are given at the following link:

These prefixes will note the skills given by the class mod, with the prefix determining the highest skill bonus of each mod.
