Hyperion, a star-spanning corporate empire in their own right, have found a need to protect their interests on far-flung worlds. They have employed numerous soldiers and outfitted them with high-quality weapons technology and various defensive measures to help carry out Hyperion's orders. A Hyperion force was dispatched to Pandora to deal with the inconvenient uprising of Claptraps.
The Hyperion recon team consists of a squad of soldiers sent to the Hyperion Dump in response to the apparent Robot Revolution. They are encountered in a small palisade, under siege by a number of attacking Claptraps.
- This is the first known instance of Hyperion sending troops to Pandora before Borderlands 2.
