What are Dead Claptrap?
Non-Functioning CL4P-TP Units
Claptrap is in need of parts and the only place you can get them is from dead CL4P-TP units scattered across the worlds. There's at least one in most maps.
Discover Location to be Marked on the Map
Dead Claptraps are unmarked in the maps. You'll need to discover their location before they'll appear there. This is regardless of whether you salvaged it already or not.
Complete Them All to Get the Baby Maker ++
Once you get all of the Dead Claptraps, you'll find a mail from Veronica with the Baby Maker ++. It's a sure way of getting this Legendary weapon!
Adds Another NPC to Sanctuary
A new Claptrap called Veronica will be stationed in Sanctuary after salvaging parts from all Dead Claptraps. Head on over to Claptrap's area to activate her.
