Megacorp Sweeper Bots[1] are enemies in Going Commando. They are small, yellow, Megacorp robots in Megapolis, Endako, whose role is to clean the streets. They were also used in the testing facility on Dobbo, to clean up the mess after Megacorp Security Turrets destroyed intruders.[1] When Ratchet arrived on Megapolis after Clank was kidnapped, the Sweeper Bots had malfunctioned, and were unable to differentiate between garbage and organic life.[1] Ratchet fought them during the missions "Rescue Clank from the thief" and "Visit Clank's apartment", while Clank fought a few during "Free Ratchet".

Sweeper Bots use three spinning brushes for mobility, which can also double as an attack as they rapidly spin around. They have a single eye from a stalk used to detect garbage. This eye changes color based on if garbage is detected; when no garbage is detected, their eyes are green; when they are suspicious of garbage or a threat (such as when Ratchet has destroyed one from range and they cannot see him), their eyes turn yellow; when they detect garbage, their eyes turn red, and they emit a beeping sound. Sweeper Bots are normally found in groups patrolling an area, and additional units are spawned when Ratchet knocks over a trash can, though they can also be summoned if there is no apparent cause.

Sweeper Bots attack Ratchet by slowly moving towards him and using a spinning attack, as soon as they detect him. While they attack in large numbers, they have very low durability and can be defeated by any attack. In most cases, using the Blitz Gun or Chopper can clear out waves of them before getting close. The Miniturret Glove is also effective, as a deployed miniturret can hold its own against a deployment of larger groups. When Ratchet takes over the cranes during "Rescue Clank from the thief", it is possible to destroy them by dropping blocks on them or using the Megacorp Laser Bot against them (though doing so will miss out on experience earned to upgrade weapons).
