So what role is left for claptrap?

We got Whilhelm playing a mix of offensive and defensive pet class, Athena looks to be the Tanky melee character with a touch elemental dmg and support.and I guess Nisha is the fast glass cannon character. If we look at past BL games the only "role" left is the Beserker. So I guess his action skill will involve a 30-40 sec period of boosted damage, defense and maybe speed. Also he has the title of claptrap " the fragtrap". I kinda think of grenades and artillery with a name like that. So if I had to say, I think claptrap zerks out maybe even makes a transformation of some kind for his action skill.


I kinda see him as a support character though. maybe boosting the shields and generating ammo for himself and teammates. It's already been hinted that he doesn't need "0z" like the other characters, so he can revive other players without worrying about whatever penalty is being imposed by running out of Oxygen.

Some believe melee. And there are oz kits made for him sort of, since the bonus kicks in if your oz is low and clap trap has no oz

i hope he's a posession type character

his skill his he shots out something like a phaselock that possess an enemy for a period of time

and his final skill in one of the tree's is the enemy dies after posession

As the TC said, Claptrap is the Fragtrap (assuming something with explosives?) perhaps his Action skill could be something incredibly dope like you get increased movement speed, and you are a walking explosive! Meaning that when you run up to an enemy you can blow yourself up (sorta like Light the Fuse except you don't die)? It could be a possibility. Maybe even in the action skill have claptrap throw specific explosives (in his skill tree he will have different kinds of frags?) the possibilities are endless for one of my all time favorite video game characters and I'm glad we can finally play as him!

What could be even more cool would be his final skill in a tree which allows Claptrap to constantly explode and continue to explode when an enemy dies

Well they do seem to be mixing up a bit more this game. no siren, commando etc right now. I would think fragtrap is gonna be something berserker like, and of course they come up with something completely new I will be pleasantly surprised.
