Notes

  • 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 skill, but is not affected by grenade damage bonuses.
  • If Claptrap's shield is not depleted the self damage hit it instead of his health.
