Top-notch Special is a unique aftermarket SMG manufactured by Tediore. It is the starting weapon for Claptrap.

Usage & Description

As the first weapon picked up by a character at the start of a playthrough, the Top-notch Special is a minimalist submachine gun with no special characteristics beyond its unique parts and should be replaced when better weapons become available.


  • The Top-notch Special spawns with an entirely fixed set of parts consisting of a Tediore grip and stock, no sight, no accessory, and no elemental capacitor.
  • Weapons with the same name can spawn in the game but without any restrictions on parts, sights, or elemental capacitors.
