The Hyperion Heavy Gunner is an enemy in Claptrap's New Robot Revolution, and a member of the Hyperion recon team.

The Hyperion Heavy Gunner is a slow-moving unit that fights with SMGs, or combat rifles and can throw grenades. They can also deploy a yellow-shielded Scorpio Turret. Heavy Gunners wear leg and forearm armor plating.

Members of the Hyperion recon team present a brief encounter in the Hyperion Dump. They attempt to defend a fortified position against both Vault Hunters and claptraps



Hyperion Heavy Gunners move slowly and are easily outmanoeuvred as a result. They do not run for cover, seeking instead to drop their turret and use that for cover while they fight. Typically, the easiest way to deal with a Heavy Gunner, when the Gunner's turret is deployed, is to interrupt the turret's line of sight. In close quarters this can simply mean jumping over the turret, or moving around the side, to the turret's rear where it cannot attack. In areas where cover is plentiful, moving into locations where obstructions block the turret, but allow targeting on the Heavy Gunner. As the turret will disappear when its Gunner has been killed, it is advisable to first eliminate the Gunner when under extreme duress, although the turret itself may also be destroyed first for additional experience points. Corrosive weaponry is highly effective against Heavy Gunners.
