Blast your opponents into oblivion with high-velocity plasma balls!

Magma Combustor

The Magma Combustor nanotech auto-upgrade gives the wielder control of three barrels of radioactive superheated plasma destruction. Perfect for resolving minor automotive disputes, lighting barbecues or spreading democracy to third world galaxies. (GrummelNet is not legally responsible for providing an exit strategy for said conflicts.)

Fusion Grenade

Nothing ruins an enemy's day like a thermonuclear hand grenade!

Fusion Bomb

The Fusion Bomb contains a cluster of GrummelNet's patented "Intelli-Seeking Pyrocidic Nitroballs". These devastating Nitroballs will bounce toward your foes and deliver a resounding and unmitigated form of justice.

Shock Ravager

Shielded enemies will think twice about attacking after feeling the wrath of an electrified energy whip!

Lightning Ravager

GrummelNet's coveted Lightning Ravager is the only weapon in the galaxy to harness the mysterious power of quantum lightning. The "quantum chaining" feature is greatly improved in this upgrade to the Shock Ravager, as searing bolts of lightning intelligently seek out and strike other foes over a greater distance each time an enemy is hit. Originally conceived as a bath time toy, the technology was repurposed by GrummelNet's weapons division on the advice of our legal department.

Tornado Launcher

Create and control your own cataclysmic tornados using patented Gadgetron technology! Trailer Park sold separately.

Tempest Launcher


Buzz Blades


Doom Blades

The Doom Blades are the most highly advanced form of GrummelNet's "Smirking Ninja" weapon line. Each blade is soaked in a high molarity, raritanium-piercing hydro-chloro-biocidic acid that will continue damaging your foes long after the blade has found its mark.

Predator Launcher

Enemies can run, but they can't hide from this launcher's new and improved laser guided lock-on system!

Raptor Launcher

Raptor Rockets are GrummelNet's answer to the age old question: "Why can't I shoot seeker ammo and drop incendiary goo at the same time?" Thanks to the latest breakthroughs in nanotech auto-upgrades, Raptor Rockets now provide you with the seeking missiles you've grown to love plus an extra splash of hot, sticky napalm in every shot!

Alpha Disruptor


Alpha Cannon

The Alpha Cannon is so powerful it was once thought to be the lost "Lombax Secret". It improves upon the Alpha Disruptor's already fearsome firepower by creating a massive explosive impact with every enemy it hits. If there are any foes within 12 cubits of the blast radius, rest assured you won't be seeing them in the sequel.

Pyro Blaster

This kerchu-engineered flamethrower offers your enemies two choices: regular or extra crispy!



Plasma Beasts

These synthetic bodyguards will lay dormant until enemies move in, then strike with lethal efficiency!

Plasma Stalker


Shard Reaper

Perforate your foes with high-velocity spikes of Trillium Ore!

Nitro Reaper

The Nitro Reaper extends the functionality of the ever popular Shard Reaper by injecting highly compressed liquid hydrogen in each shard. Freeze your enemies stiff, and then laugh at them mercilessly! Cragmite popsicle kit sold separately.




A favorite with Teamsters, the Judicator is a triple barreled version of GrummelNet's high-end Negotiator. Firing three rockets at a time, the Judicator is perfect for invading small galaxies or enforcing picket lines.


A single hive deploys dozen of nanosects that attack your enemies with pyrocidic stingers!

Toxic Swarmers


Mag-Net Launcher

Uses polarized raritanium pellets to cast an electromagnetic mesh over your enemies!

Mag-Net Cannon


Razor Claws

Lacerate your enemies in style using wrist-mounted laser splitters!

Shredder Claws



A weapon so dangerous and illegal that its schematics were destroyed and its designers locked up in a maximum security asylum on planet Pokitaru.

RYNO IV Extreme



O2 Mask

Never let a lack of oxygen keep you from saving the galaxy! This incredible mask will actually synthesize and recycle oxygen while you explore underwater areas and outer space!


The Geo-Laser allows Clank to cut through cracked, weakened walls. Use the light over Ratchet's head as a guide and press Triangle when it's solid green.


Although the optical relay has been damaged, the message contained inside appears to be intact. Perhaps your ship has the necessary equipment to unlock its message!

3 3/4 Centicubit Hexagonal Washer

An unusual gift from The Plumber, this looks like an ordinary washer used to fix leaking pipes and oversized hydraulic toilets (otherwise known as interplanetary transportation gizmos).


A favored gadget amongst thieves, criminals, and hackers, the Decryptor allows its user to bypass and security protocol to gain access to restricted areas and launch pads. It also plays MP3s, snaps pictures, and does your homework while you sleep.


Originally developed by the Center for Advanced Lombax Research, this single-seat transportation device has been modified with a terrathruster to rocket its user to their final destination!

Box Basher 2000

Allows you to smash crates with greater efficiency using patent-pending air blast technology!

Treasure Mapper

Gold Bolts will have nowhere to hide with this handy device! Their exact locations will be revealed on your map, taking the guesswork out of treasure hunting once and for all!

These gruesome little figurines bear an uncanncy resmeblance to Emperor Tachyon. Collect all six!



The Swingshot is one of the most popular and essential gadgets in any adventurer's inventory. Manufactured exclusively by Gadgetron, the Swingshot is compatible with a broad range of Versa-Targets across nineteen galaxies. Just leap toward any target, press Circle and your trusty Swingshot will automatically equip and latch on, propelling you gracefully out of the path of danger.


GrummelNet's patented Heli-Pods are a safe and convenient method for lifting massive weights or hazardous objects. Just shoot out a Heli-Pod at any object affixed with a self-adhesive Heli-Target, and let the surprisingly strong whirring propeller work its magic!


The Gelanator is a GrummelNet utility gadget sold exclusively to the Gelatonium Mining Workers Union and their licensed signatories. This gadget allows the operator to drain or fill any standard G4-MW isobaric gelatonium pump in the Polaris Galaxy.

Holo-Pirate disguise

This pint-sized holo-morphic pirate disguise was created by Percival Tachyon himself. Tachyon intended to use the disguise to spy on Slag's pirate crew in case they were plotting against him. But Tachyon's plan was thwarted when his lack of rhythm prevented him from getting past pirate security doors. Tachyon later offered the disguise as a prize in his Imperial Fight Festival, hoping to lure Captain Slag to his death in the Imperial Arena.


The Heli-Pack allows you to perform a High Jump by jumping from a crouched position. To perform a Long Jump, run and crouch then immediately jump. To Glide, simply press and hold X while in the air.


The Thruster Pack upgrade has High Jump, Long Jump, and Glide features just like the Heli-Pack.


These powerful robotic wings, when charged, will allow their owner to fly. The wings are constructed from a very unusual zeptotech upgrade technology that is far more advanced than the nanotech upgrades used throughout most galaxies. Despite their strangely technological origins, these wings were designed to be compatible with the gelatonium-fueled Launch Pads that are found throughout the Polaris Galaxy.


The Hydro-Pack upgrade is a black market offering. This upgrade significantly increases swim speed and will even let you swim against currents. Fortunately, Clank comes equipped with this upgrade thanks to your previous adventures.


Ah, your old trusty Grindboots. Use this device to slide along specially designed rails, dodging obstacles in a frantic fight for your own life. It's an extreme sport, but you love it!

Packing twice the power of a regular leech bomb, the Mega-Leech is the absolute latest in health transferal technology!


Transform your enemies into loveable penguins with the latest in molecular reconfiguration!


This radio controlled assault weapon allows you to take out your enemies across moderate distances. A favorite of lazy adventurers across the galaxy.

Mr. Zurkon

This humble yet eloquent synthenoid has been manufactured with only one directive: protect its master!

Confuzzler Gas

Derived from the seeds of the Cobalian Werm Plant, this psychotropic hallucinogen temporarily causes your opponents to fight each other instead of you!


Wall Jump

Look for 'jump slots' with the surfaces shown in the picture. Jump towards one wall using X and then hit X again just as you hit the wall. Jump back and forth between the walls to get to the top of the slot.


When you're in water, press Square to dive and X to rise. Push X harder to rise more quickly.

Ledge Traversal

When hanging on a ledge, you can traverse it by moving Left analog stick left or right.

Hyper Strike

The Hyper Strike does more damage than your regular wrench attack. To execute a Hyper Strike, press X, followed by Square.

Comet Strike

The Comet Strike is an effective way to reach distant enemies and bolts. Simply crouch by pressing R2, then press Square to throw your wrench.

Long Jump

To Long Jump, get a running start, then press and hold R2 and X together. For maximum jumping distance, jump from the very edge of the gap.

High Jump

To perform a High Jump, hold R2, then press X.


To Glide, jump then press and hold X.

Aim Mode

For more aiming accuracy, hold L1 to enter Aim Mode. While in Aim Mode, use Right analog stick to aim, L1 to fire, and Left analog stick to move.


Strafing greatly increases your tactical efficiency. To strafe, hold down L2 while running.



Blackstar armor

Designed by Captain Blackstar himself, this amazing armor uses biostatic nanomytes to absorb up to 25% of all damage. The finest in affordable anti-mutiny defense wear!

Proximity Sensors

These sonar-equipped proximity sensors allow the plasma beasts to detect and attack enemy targets from farther away.

Pyrocidic Nano-Clusters

This upgrade adds tiny Pyrocidic Nano-Clusters into the shards of the weapon. After imbedding themselves in a target, the Nano-Clusters will trigger an explosive reaction that further damages your foe.
