Achievement / Trophy Unlocked

Up High, Down Low (15 points / Bronze):
Gave Claptrap a high five.

Achievement / Trophy Guide

  • Claptrap can be found in Sanctuary. When you find him, one of the options is to interact and get him in high-five position.
  • When Claptrap raises his hand, all you have to do is melee it! Claptrap will only do this once, so make sure to melee after getting him to raise his hand.
  • Once you melee Claptrap’s hand, you’ll unlock the achievement / trophy. As Claptrap would say, “Get you some!”


  • Claptrap can also be found during the Wildlife Preservation quest, where he’ll request another high-five. Before the final mission, you can also high-five Claptrap — there are many more possibilities, so keep looking.

    What if i skipped it on accident… do i have to restart the WHOLE game??? :(

    @Kevin, no you don’t need to restart, there are other places where Claptrap will high five you. You’ll first get a chance to high five Claptrap in Sanctuary where he’s located in the north west corner of the map. He’ll also offer you the mission “Claptrap’s Secret Stash”.
    If you miss it this time, here are the other places you can attempt it (Spoilers).
    Wildlife Preservation Quest – He will request a high five
    Claptraps Birthday Party (Possible)
    Just before the Final Mission

    If you missed it, you might have to. But! You can also try joining someone else’s game. Someone that hasn’t done it yet…

    Of course, you can also finish the game, then start a new game plus. Yeah, totally inconvenient, but I’ve read that Claptrap will only accept the high-five prompt once. If anyone out there knows that I’m wrong, please correct me.
