— Description in Size Matters, SM
The Gadgetron Personal Delivery Assistant, or Gadgetron PDA is an optional gadget in Ratchet & Clank, Up Your Arsenal, Size Matters, and Secret Agent Clank. It functions as a portable vendor and allows Ratchet to purchase ammo for Gadgetron weapons remotely, but for ten times the price at a normal weapons vendor.
Ratchet & Clank
The Gadgetron PDA is acquired from Qwark, under the alias "Steve McQwark", on planet Oltanis in the ruins of Gorda City, as an unofficial product claiming to be a Gadgetron product. It allows Ratchet to purchase ammo from any location, for 10 times the normal ammo price. However, as bolts are scarce in Ratchet & Clank, it is often best avoiding it in favor of ordinary vendors.
Up Your Arsenal
The Gadgetron PDA can be acquired on Qwark's hideout on the Thrann Asteroid. Once it is located, it can be purchased for 250,000 bolts. It functions identically to the original PDA, and will not deliver ammo for the five Megacorp weapons purchased from Slim Cognito.
The Gadgetron PDA can be acquired on planet Challax, and is purchased for 50,000 bolts, and functions identically to previous appearances though it only charges five times more than usual rather than 10. Ammo can be purchased for all weapons aside from the Static Barrier.
Secret Agent Clank
The Gadgetron PDA can be acquired for Ratchet upon beating the first challenge in the Prison Showers, functioning identically to its Size Matters appearance.
