Hello, I am about to get to playthrough 2.5. I've really rushed this playthrough to save as many missions as possible for the level scaling available later. Before I finish Find Steele, I need to know if there is any reason that the five playthrough 2 claptrap rescue missions that can yield a backpack sdu upgrade would not do so on 2.5. I have accepted all five of those missions and have all five repair kits...I just have not been able to get anything but grenade mods from those little pricks. So...if I get to the Vault, do I lose the chance of getting those SDUs, or is there still the same random chance on 2.5 as there was on 2? Thanks!
It's really just a chance thing. There is no gaurantee that in the second playthrough they will give you an SDU. Ive done a few playthroughs and managed to only get one SDU on a second playthrough. Kinda sucks but thats how it is. BTW...just a friendly reminder to please start your post's after the two puzzle piece's at the top of the page.

a very good question. any chance of you backing up your save? i dont know anyone who has horded repair kits and left the "little pricks" to bask in wait. floks who want "all" the BPSDUs are known to reload many dozen times. most give up and settle for less. many use willowtree (eventually).16:10, September 3, 2011 (UTC)
- I've given up trying to get a perfect inventory, I just use willowtree now-- 18:17, September 3, 2011 (UTC)
To answer the original question, I don't think you lose the chance to get the SDU by going to PT 2.5, but it is a very slim chance indeed. Out of about 6 PT 2s, 5 claptraps each, I got the SDU on first try only once (i.e. 1/30 chance). I also tried to farm it by restarting, averaging about 20 tries before getting it. So basically, it's just a waste of time; just use willow tree/shrubbery. Logisim 20:16, September 3, 2011 (UTC)
