I was driving to do some mission when suddenly a red glowing monster just spawned in front of me.

Screenshot of red glowing Bullymong

Are they some kind of rare? Because he was pretty easy and not a Badass.

    I think that's just a Bullymong with a graphical glitch

  • I encountered this same Bullymong and as far as I could tell there was nothing special about it other than the red glow.

  • Do you play it on pc or ps4? I haven't seen this on pc which makes me think that this is a glitch.

I've seen some objects, like bullymong snow pile and pile of trash to glow with a similarly bright, but green glow.

This is a glitch.

P.S.: but a glitched monster definitely seems much more intriguing than a glitched pile! :)

  • Breakable objects are supposed to have a noticeable (but not extreme) green glow/green gas effect to indicate that they're breakable, like how containers have a green light to show they can be opened.

  • True, but this was definitely not that glow - my reflexes are honed by Borderlands 1 :) The glow I saw was analogous to one pictured - rich green tint covering entire model, with color "bleeding" outside some distance in screen space.

  • I saw this appear on a spider ant as I drove away from Ellie's place. Though funnily it wasn't the ant that was glowing, it was the hole he jumped out of. Oct 5 '12 at 5:51
  • Oh, I failed to mention the glow was on a destroyed pile - like with Jeff's ant hole (and OP's bullymong corpse), these were just temporary debris objects.

I have seen that same red bullymong in the exact same spot everytime I reach that point in the game. if it is a glitch then it is a weird one because the glow doesn't go away after it dies or anything and it actually emits light instead of just being a different texture.


I just killed that same red glowing bullymong in that same spot. I spent a few minutes wondering if there was something special about it, but not as far as I can see.
