Hot Head Pirates were the grenadiers of the undead pirate crew. They were shaped like cannons and fired out head-shaped creatures. These heads were shaped like skulls and have wheels on the bottom. Once fired they floated around trying to hit Ratchet and exploded. The skulls were one-hit kills but the bodies were as strong as the other pirates. They also carried a torch-like object with green fire, which they used to light themselves.
- It is likely that the Hot Head Pirates were based on the in-game model of Rusty Pete. However, Rusty Pete had a different head.
