— Nefarious, about the Jetpack, PS4
The XK-81 Jetpack is a gadget in Ratchet & Clank (2016 game). It was invented by Dr. Nefarious on planet Gaspar and used by the blarg. It allows for long-term flight time when full of fuel, collected from green fueling stations on various planets.
The XK-81 Jetpack is used by holding to fly upwards and consume fuel, and releasing allows the player to descend slowly. It can only be used when a fueling station is available. Weapons can be used during flight. The Jetpack has a fuel meter indicating the percentage of fuel remaining, which flashes red when nearly empty, and creating a beeping alert when completely empty. It can be refueled by stepping on a fueling station.
