Seeking to overthrow the humans on Pandora, the newly reprogrammed Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap formed an army of Claptraps to form the initial backbone of the robot revolution. The Claptrap Partisan was built or refitted to operate as a basic infantry combat unit, and comes complete with an archaic helmet of a 20th Century design to project a general issue military appearance.
Claptrap Partisans attack using Shotguns or Combat Rifles. They are relatively weak targets that will wheel into medium and close ranges to deliver their shotgun blasts, or hang back at mid range when armed with a rifle. They can be potent in high numbers when encountered in confined areas, where multiple Claptrap Partisans can catch unwary aggressors in a deadly crossfire.
A Claptrap Partisan's critical hit location is its centrally mounted optical sensor.

Claptrap Partisans have their weapons mounted in the middle of their heads above their optic sensors.
The Claptrap Partisian's shout, "Exterminate!" is a reference to the Daleks, from the British sci-fi show Doctor Who, who have the same war cry before entering battle.
The line "Hey Baby, Wanna kill all humans?" is a quote originally said by the robot Bender, on the TV show Futurama.
The line "I see three flashing red lights!" is a reference to the "three red lights" error displayed on the Xbox 360 console's "ring of light", indicating a general hardware failure.
