Children of the Vault Walkthrough
Here, you will find a large lever next to the yellow car shell. Pull the Lever to open the gate.
Follow Claptrap through the gate and jump across the broken bridge. Continue following Claptrap until you reach a crate, in which he will explode to reveal a weapons cache. Take the Weapon Inside the Crate.
Follow Claptrap and Gain Entry into the Propaganda Center.
After a short cutscene, Claptrap will be taken by the Children of the Vault (COV). Follow Claptrap, who is now stuck to a large magnetic device, and Kill the COV enemies in the area.
Once all of the COV are killed, make your way through the large metal doors.
Once inside the new area, begin Searching for Shield.
The Shield can be found in the Northern part of the area, on top of three large shipping containers.
With the Shield obtained, use the onscreen marker to Find Shiv inside the large building.
As you enter inside the large building, a short cutscene will play, introducing Shiv.
After defeating Shiv, make your way up the stairs inside the building and begin heading towards the top of the tower to access the magnetic control panel. Upon disabling the magnet, Claptrap will fall to the ground.
Make your way to Claptrap on the ground and Revive Him.
Now that Claptrap is saved, Speak with Lilith who has just appeared to receive your reward.
