Armor is a type of collectible in Up Your Arsenal, used to increase damage reduction. Ratchet can purchase armor sets from Gadgetron's armor vendor by spending bolts, unlocking new sets upon progressing through the story. Each armor has its own distinct color style, and each superior version will add more armor panels, culminating in the Infernox armor, which even fully covers Ratchet's head, ears, and tail.

Purchasing the Infernox armor unlocks the skill point "Turn up the heat". The Infernox armor also becomes temporarily available during inferno mode, activated through breaking inferno crates, which grant temporary invincibility and a pair of flaming wrenches that kill anything in one hit.
