Default Your one stop shop for DLC4 information *SPOILERS*

*Spoilers*


Quote:
Ok, i know Gearbox probably didn't want this to come out but i might aswell post it up for everone now a large proportion of the community knows anyway. Dlc is close to being among us and recently in the pc patch 1.31 a folder which contained information about the next dlc was found. If you don't want to know this or want to keep the suprise in the DLC then stop reading now... seriously now.
Also please note that I am not a Gearbox employee - all of this information is just what i can gather from the files. Some of the following information may turn out to be false.


If you are a Gearbox employee and don't want any of this information out until you make an offical announcement feel free to delete this thread or message me and request i delete it.


DLC Introduction:

Marcus: Our story began when the Hyperion Corporation decided they'd had enough of the treasure hunters. With The Vault on lockdown, they had served their purpose, and now they were a drain on the economy. Why pay full price for
weapons when you can take a five-finger discount off the nearest corpse?

Marcus: Hyperion was looking to clear the drain, but those guys were one tough hairball...

Intro Kid: I thought you said the treasure hunters were the drain.Now they're the hairball?

Marcus: Well- yes, see the treasure hunters were blocking the flow of- and the grimy build-up of money and-

Intro Kid: This metaphor stinks...

Marcus:
Shut up! The point is Hyperion had a plan. The treasure hunters could handle all manner of beastie, bandit, and batallion, but they weren't expecting the ... Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap!

Marcus: This claptrap was programmed to take our boys out indirectly. Trapping, poisoning, spreading catty rumors around town. Nothing was off-limits. He was smart... too smart.

Marcus: He looked around, and didn't like what he saw: claptraps being subjugated, humliated, obliterated. What we call programming, he called slavery.
So he rallied his fellow claptraps and turned them against their corporate masters. What started as a rebellion became a revolution. And take a wild guess who Hyperion called to clean up the mess...




*WARNING VERY BIG SPOILERS BELOW*


Story Overview:

Basically the ninja claptrap was created by Hyperion to stop the vault hunters from taking all the guns and treasure etc... but was too clever, he saw other claptraps being 'enslaved' and 'killed' - he wanted it to stop so he started a claptrap revoloution. Now Hyperion have asked the vault hunters to help them stop the claptrap uprising and return things back to normal but the claptraps have gone about... re-animating dead people and adding claptrap robot parts to them to fight in their army. Some of the people re-animated include Dr Ned. Commandant Steele and General Knoxx.

new enemies

To understand this: at the top (without a number next to it) is the basic name of the enemy and below it are versions with number. If it has a number 1 next to it this is what the enemy will be called in P.T. 1
A number 2 shows what it will be called in P.T. 2
A number 3 shows what it will be called in P.T. 2.5
A number 4 is so far a mystery

If the enemy only has a 1 next to it this means that it is called that on all play through.

I have highlighted red which enemies I personally believe will be bosses.
