On the left Claptrap, has given you a communication device. On the right, a woman appears to tell you you're needed and that she will help.

You wake up, having survived the explosion, and see a CL4P-TP steward bot looking through the bodies around you (Pandora is not a very nice place). He’s Claptrap. He gives you an ECHO communication device with a Heads Up Display (HUD) that shows you a map, your health, and later has information about your guns and inventory. Follow him as he talks about the state of the planet and plots against Handsome Jack.

A woman then appears on your HUD screen telling you that you survived for a reason. She’s there to help. Follow Claptrap’s wonderful voice and he will take you to his home. He gets scanned before the door opens up, mentioning Bullymongs and how they’re likely to tear out your eyes (hence the extra security). He continues that he has a pistol in a safe for emergencies. On cue, the Bullymong Claptrap was referring to, Knuckle Dragger , comes in through a hole in the ceiling and rips out Claptrap’s eye.

Note: Boxes and cupboards with green lights indicate there is loot inside. These most likely contain ammo, health and money, so make sure you check them often.

The diamond marker tells you where to go and what to do for the current mission.

Claptrap, now blind, will bump into things around the room and tell you to get the pistol from the safe. A diamond marker on the map and on screen will tell you where to go. There will also be a green shine to objects that can be used.
