Start With a Bang is a tier 4 skill in Claptrap's Boomtrap skill tree. When firing the first bullet of a gun's clip/magazine, Claptrap emits an Explosive Nova at the cost of health.


  • This skill works well with a melee focused Claptrap since the radius of the nova is rather small.
  • It is ill advised to attempt to use this skill with a Tediore build due to the chance of Claptrap destroying itself along with its targets.
  • Start With a Bang's damage is increased by Load 'n' Splode, but is not affected by grenade damage bonuses.
