Broomsticks are unique enemies only encountered the mission The Claptrap's Apprentice in the Mines of Avarice.


The broomsticks appear when Claptrap attempts to perform several spells, emboldened by his acquisition of a beard. They become hostile after Claptrap orders that they be removed. In his attempts to stop the brooms from spawning, Claptrap only increases their potency, elevating them well above ordinary animated broomsticks. Eventually, the horde of broomsticks is defeated and Claptrap learns a lesson in magic.


  • Broomstick evolution:

  • These enemies originate from The Sorcerer's Apprentice, a 1797 poem describing the antics of a young apprentice sorcerer who animates a broom with increasingly dire consequences.
