The INAC wiki last edited by Deusoma on 04/09/14 04:10PM View full history


MINAC, INAC's mobile battle fortress.
This particular Claptrap serves as the final boss of the Claptrap's New Robot Revolution DLC for Borderlands, and because it is set after all the other story segments, the true final boss of Borderlands. The Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap was sent by the Hyperion Corporation as part of a new strategy to indirectly deal with Roland, Lilith, Mordecai, and Brick, the Vault Hunters who'd been a thorn in the side of Hyperion throughout the Borderlands campaign. Since all attempts by anyone to kill the Vault Hunters through direct frontal assault had ended in failure, "INAC" would lay traps, poison food supplies, and spread rumours about the Hunters to get all of Pandora to turn against them. Unfortunately, INAC was made extra-intelligent in order to accomplish these tasks, and he used this intelligence to override his programming, whereupon he set out to accomplish galactic domination, reprogramming the Claptraps of Pandora to serve him as footsoldiers, as well as forcibly transforming a wide variety of organic creatures into partially robotic slaves, including Skags, Rakks, and Spiderants, and even intelligent creatures like Bandits, Crimson Lance soldiers, and the late General Knoxx. Ultimately, the Hunters confront INAC at the bus stop from the very beginning of Borderlands, whereupon he summons an enormous battle tank he calls "MINAC" - the Mega Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap - and directly engages the players. Upon MINAC's defeat, INAC pops out and puts up minimal resistance as the Hunters blow him away, using a device on him once he's disabled to reset his programming to basic Claptrap standards... and transforming him into the harmless dancing Claptrap on the game's main menu.
