Dead Claptrap Locations below are divided up into regions. You can also view our Interactive Maps for more information.
You can find this Claptrap located in the scrapyard above Ellie’s Garage near the entrance area of the Droughts, by heading up the path located behind her garage.

You can find this Claptrap in the middle area of The Droughts near a rest stop and Catch a Ride station, located past the path up to the Crimson Raiders Drydock, heading towards the path to Ascension Bluff.
When you spot the sign for the Catch A Ride in the middle of the road, look down below it by some ruined cars to find the Dead Claptrap perched on some debris.
You can find a lone dead Claptrap on the Ascension Bluff along the Path of Sacrifice leading to the main building on the region.
