Claptrap is Claptrap. For better or worse …mostly worse.
Matt Armstrong, Borderlands Franchise Director


VaultHunter.EXE - Action Skill. Press [LB/L1/F] to run your VaultHunter.EXE program.

It also gives you Full Health and Health Regeneration. VaultHunter.EXE is still in beta and its definition of Vault Hunter is questionable at best. Warning: VaultHunter.EXE is currently classified as malware. Your allies may be affected.
