Hyperion Punch is a tier 5 skill in Claptrap's Boomtrap skill tree. When Claptrap gains five stacks of Hyperion Punch, a special Incendiary Damage replaces the default melee attack.


  • Kills with Hyperion Punch are treated as Rocket Launcher kills.


  • This skill is a reference to the Falcon Punch, an attack used by Captain Falcon in the Super Smash Bros. series.[1] In addition, the dialogue Claptrap shouts when using this skill is similar to what Captain Falcon shouts upon performing this attack, for example; 'Show me what ya got!' references the line, 'Show me your moves!' which Captain Falcon says upon taunting.[2]
  • Hyperion Punch does not receive melee, grenade, explosive, or rocket launcher damage bonuses. Hyperion Punch is only boosted by Incendiary damage bonuses. (tested via subroutines)
