  • Pressing primary fire during Meat Unicycle will trigger this skill if you have enough stacks.


  • 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).
