Mission Briefing[edit]

After Handsome Jack left you for dead in Windshear Waste, you escaped the cold and met a CL4P-TP general purpose robot - the last of his kind on Pandora. He has enlisted you as his minion. You are to help him kill Jack, destroy the warrior, and save Pandora. Now that his minion is well-armed and raring for a fight, Claptrap feels it's time for you and him to head to Sanctuary, the last free town in Pandora. To do that, you'll need to steal Claptrap's boat back from the nefarious Captain Flynt. One obstacle stands between you and Flynt, however: Flynt's henchman, an explosives expert named Boom Bewm.

Mission Debriefing[edit]

By killing Captain Flynt, you have increased the average literacy of the entire area by a factor of ten. Now nothing stands between you and a frigid, fifteen-hour boat ride with Claptrap. 'Grats!
