Default The Borderlands 2 Team Talks Claptrap

Learn more about the origins of Claptrap (and see an early piece of concept art) over at Complex:

Love the idea of claptrap having his own personal vengeance silliness in BL2. Sounds like it could be very amusing.

This is the only difference.
Do not want.

Remember the Claptrap unit you first met upon arriving in Fyrestone? Well, he’s the only CL4P-TP in existence anymore. The Hyperion Corporation destroyed his entire product line, and so Claptrap is on his own, personal quest to destroy Hyperion and get revenge for all his fallen brethren. Since he’s Claptrap, however, his “vengeance” usually takes the form of petty vandalism and poorly thought out insults.
This really caught my attention, really excited to see this. And the claptrap humping an air conditioner

I can only say this, if GBX can bring back Claptrap into BL2 in the same or similar capacity as BL1 (bar the Robolution DLC), I'll be extremely happy! .....and so will my gf, she loves Claptrap!

Hey, least it's coming back. Gearbox could have easily just scrapped it all together
