Krieg didn't seem to notice the Badass that had wandered out, content as he was to keep mashing dead bandits into paste on the ice. It was really a pretty effect he thought, the shocking red of their blood, the white flecks of shattered teeth and the greyish pink of brains scattered about. He could go on, but he wouldn't or he'd be there all day admiring his handiwork while there were still people demanding his attention!
Krieg felt more bullets slamming into his shield, not really an issue until the energy bubble simply shattered. He grunted as a few more bullets took him, grinning through the pain and grabbing a bandit by the shoulder, yanking him around and into the way of the rest. As the meat jerked he growled out a mumbled word or two before heading the corpse at its former comrades and diving for his axe. He liked it better than guns even if it was flashier to kill people in a spray of elemental death and explosive fury.
He was feeling a bit poetic. Probably blood loss.
Even as his wounds began to knit Krieg was throwing himself back into battle, shrieking a cry of fury as he went. Bandits scattered under his renewed assault, giving the Siren all the time in the world to pick her shots and make them count, even when she'd switched to her SMG. They were like dance partners, giving and taking and making these insolent bastards pay for every drop he spilled.
"Strip the flesh!" he couldn't help himself. It was one of the first things he'd ever said to Maya and really they were having a good time right? She'd understand. By that he meant she wouldn't shoot him. Or if she did she wouldn't shoot to kill. Well, even if she did that he'd respawn.. Perk of being registered as a Vault Hunter, he'd been told. Not that it registered to Krieg as anything except that for know for whatever reason he was essentially immortal.
Finally he noticed the minion toting Badass and grinned, sheathing his axe in a bandit for safekeeping and throwing himself at the man even as bullets pounded his shield. Then his body. He landed on the shield and held on with a snarl, wrenching the Nomad around to expose his back to Maya while he cackled a wordless song of giblets.
