QForce weapon pods were deployed all over a battlefield from the Starship Phoenix II. Inside each pod were weapons; Ratchet, Clank and Qwark needed to hack the pods in order to select one of three weapons contained. Bigger weapon pods with teleports would hold the Warmonger and Plasmabomb Launcher. These were harder to find. Skill points could be earned for unlocking all the weapon pods in each level and completing the level without dying.
