Claptrap from Borderlands on Game-Art-HQ

The Claptrap is a character with different roles in the Borderlands game series. He started as a NPC which helps the Main Protagonist from the begin in Borderlands (2009), gives the player new missions and sometimes it is part of important missions too. In one of the DLC Campaigns for Borderlands, the Claptraps are also enemies including Boss variations.

In Borderlands 2 (2012), the Claptrap is again a pure NPC while it is a playable character called Claptrap the Fragtrap in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (2014). Of course he returned in Borderlands 3 (2019) and talks a lot there….

The Claptrap is a robot with lots of purposes for the player and it never stops seems to like Dubstep and is in general a quite funny character design. I know not everyone shares the feeling but i like it / them a lot!

We never did a Borderlands related art collaboration so far but the Claptrap was the character of the monthly art challenges in our dA group in April 2014 and over ten artists participated with their takes on the always talking robot.

The clue for this character was “He never stops to talk”

Claptrap is not yet a part of a Game-Art-HQ Community Art Collaboration
