The Help Matron, also known as the Gadgetron Vendor Bot, is a minor character in Going Commando. She is an old female robot who worked for Gadgetron Corporation since the beginning. In the Bogon Galaxy, she operated a weapon store in an abandoned Gadgetron site in the Vukovar Canyon on planet Barlow. Ratchet encountered her during "Find the Desert Riders", coming across her shop right before meeting the leader of the Desert Riders. She sold Ratchet five Gadgetron weapons, which he had used on his previous adventure, as well as the RYNO II.
The Help Matron has the appearance of an aged hotbot, as her attire and hair strongly resemble Gadgetron's HelpDesk Girl, though she is much larger and more plump. She describes herself as "old fashioned" and is touchy when Ratchet offers to repair her vacuum tube.

All of the prices apply only if the player does not have a Ratchet & Clank save file on their system on which the weapon was purchased. Note that purchasing the R.Y.N.O. in the original game will not make the RYNO II free in Going Commando. Each weapon can be upgraded to a more powerful Mega version, but said upgrade is only available from a Megacorp vendor. These vendors also sell ammo for these Gadgetron weapons.
