No, this isn’t Claptrap in Torchlight 2. This is a different robot, and if you construct him you’ll be rewarded with all new difficult quests. There are five well hidden robot parts you’ll need to discover scattered through multiple acts, so stop scouring and find all the parts with our locations guide below.

If the main-quests and bosses are giving you trouble, use our Torchlight 2 walkthrough to get a helping hand. For more secrets and codes browse over to the cheats page.

Robot Parts Locations & Secret Side-Quest Guide

  • Scattered throughout the campaign of Torchlight 2, you can find hidden “Robot Part” quest-items. They’ll always be located inside dungeons.
  • Once you find your first Robot Part, a Side-Quest will begin, appropriately called “Robot Parts”.

Robot Part Locations

    Act 1

  • Widow’s Veil (Crow’s Pass): Light all the unlit braziersr throughout the dungeon to open the secret room containing the first part. Here you’ll find the Robotic Drum.
  • Act 2

  • Tower of the Moon (Ossean Wastes): Hit each of the gongs throughout the dungeon to find a secret area leading to the Robotic Arm.
  • Brood Hive (Salt Barrens): Get to the last floor of the dungeon and crush all the roach eggs to find Robotic Pipes. The Brood Hive is located deep inside Swarm Point.
  • Act 3

  • Abandoned Sawmill (Blightbogs): Remove the skeletons stuck to the walls to unlock the area, where you’ll find the Robotic Body.
  • Cacklespit’s Realm (Sundered Battlefield): To reach this area, you’ll first need to complete a quest where you’ll find a bell in the marshlands. Place the bell and complete the side-quest to unlock Cacklespit’s Realm. In the dungeon, you’ll unlock the secret area by destroying three tree stumps. Here, you’ll find the Robot Head.

Returning the Parts

Note: These parts cannot be returned to the Professor until The Broken Mines are open in the main questline in Act 4.

  • Return to the Zeryphesh in Act 2 and bring all the parts to Professor Stoker. He’ll construct the Trillbot-4000, a secret quest-giver and returning character from the first Torchlight.
  • Speak with him, and he’ll give you the secret “Three Sisters” side-quest.

Which areas the dungeons in would be extra nice. Eg Tower of Moon is in Ossean Wastes.

Act II is a big place and not everyone may have explored every part of every area.

Just my 2cents. Thanks for the guide.

For turning in this quest, either this guide is wrong or it just worked completely different for me. Professor Stoker is in the Imperial Camp in Act 3 and you cannot turn in the quest until you complete “The Emberworks” which is a quest you must turn in to the Professor, perhaps why I was unable to turn in the robot parts any sooner.

Good suggestion, the areas have been added.


You’ll need to open the passage into The Broken Mines after bringing the Power Source to the Emberworks before the Professor will get to constructing.

where is marshlands? i cant find it :/ please help me


On September 29, 2012 at 10:21 pm

I found the first part in brood hive, and now I want to backtrack. How do I go from zeryphesh to crows pass?

“Return to the Zeryphesh in Act 2″ can’t possibly be correct. The sentence above already says that you have to be in Act 4.


On October 3, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Newbie, it’s not actually called the marshlands, explore the Blightbogs and eventually you will find what you need.


On October 4, 2012 at 10:18 pm

guys. i found the bell but i din do thequest.
so just wanna know where can i place the bell

I’ve read that you can place the Bell on a Hook in the Blightbogs, that should summon Cacklespit and allow you to continue the quest chain. Let us know if it works!

I didnt have to get any bell. I picked up a quest in act3 camp to go to Fades Passage. It’s in the NE corner of Sundered Battlefield. When I got there I had to place 2 gems on pedestals on both sides of the passage, I’m not sure where I got them up from but I cleared the whole zone beforehand and I had them when I got there. Once placed they summoned Fade, the spectral ferryman. He had one last quest for me to go pick up 4 skulls in the Battlefield. This was very easy as I had already cleared out the zone. After turning it in he then ported me to Cacklespits Realm.

Ah….FYI…. Brood Hive is In SWARM POINT which is in Salt Barrens…..

I looked for it everywhere in Salt Barrens until I found out it was in Swarm P. D:

Where is it possible to find the mod for that amazing user interface (pic)? please :)


On October 18, 2012 at 4:35 pm

I only got one extra quest called “sisters” or some such thing. They weren’t hard at all to defeat either. Am I missing something?


On October 20, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Wow. I am already in act 4 when I found this robot quest on this site.
Is there I way for me to still go back to act 1?

hallo guys i have a problem.
i have completed the Cacklespit’s Realm quest but didnt know there was a robot part there so i didnt look close enough. now that i know the part is in her realm i can’t find the ghost that transport me there and the bell is on its place, can i summon him in some kind of way?

Note: depending on where you are with the main quest robot parts need to be returned to Professor Stroker in Act 3 (Imperial Camp)

Regarding ACT3 Cacklespit’s Realm:
A few things to get to Realm:
- Go to Bligtbogs, find a Bell (written in purple as quest item)
- go to northwest corner where the Bell needs to be taken
- NPC will pop (Caclespit)
- do his quest and return to him. Accept any reward and he will disapper.
- go back to city/camp (Imperial Camp)
- you will get a quest there, accept it
- go to Sundered Battlefild
- go to southern border of the map and look for 2 altars
- lit the altars and Fade (quest giver NPC) will appear
- do his quest, return and he will let you to Cacklespit’s Realm
- enter the realm and look for 3 green smoking tree stumps, destroy them
- look for a smaller peninsula on the east side of the map and a secret path will open (bridge made of wook timbers)
- get the robot part
- if this is your final part, return to Professor Stocker who is either in camp of Act 2 or 3.

**** Spoiler ****

Here are some screen shots of what the quest gives you. Notice it gives you over 800k XP in NG+ Normal Mode. Basically 2 level worth of XP plus some class specific items.


On May 7, 2013 at 10:12 pm

how the heck do i get back to act 1 from act 2 i’ve google it and i still cant find the supposed guy to transport me back..


On July 28, 2013 at 1:16 pm

You need to destroy all SIX tree stumps, not three.


On December 12, 2013 at 4:57 pm

Caklespit’s Realm-There are more than 3 tree stumps (trunks in game) in the area.


On December 13, 2013 at 12:14 pm

Also you don’t need to go all the way back to Act 2.


On July 15, 2014 at 12:05 am

Ok i did everything i made the robot (in imperial camp) and i made the quest 3 sisters and its all cool but it sais it will return a character from the first part…well it didn’t so tell me am i doing something wrong or its a lie ?
