Soldier Bots[1] were elite sentinels used by Nefarious to guard many different planets of importance. They were organized, orderly and marched in a trooping formation to patrol any sensitive areas. Usually found in packs, they were able to teleport into an area to provide reinforcement backup.

They wielded a quick-firing, slow-bullet gun similar to Ratchet's first Blaster. Each soldier carried a bayonet tech firing a burst of 5 and was on the tip of a sharp blade bayonet serving as a weapon of combat. The soldiers were equipped with jetpacks, allowing them to fly. It was not advisable to establish close-quarters combat against one of them, their ability to combat with the bayonet was impressive, if a combat against a group was established and it was deadly. They were first encountered on Daxx's Weapons Facility.


Commander Bot

A more advanced type of Soldier Bot called a Commander Bot was found on the Zeldrin Starport, Planet Zeldrin (Crash Site), Koros, and Mylon.
