The Hypershot was a two-in-one gadget of Gadgetron's Swingshot and MegaCorp's Dynamo. It was first given to Ratchet by Helga in the Starship Phoenix. The Hypershot fired out an energy cable that could be used to swing and grapple onto special versa-targets. It could also be used to activate temporary holographic platforms. Later games would re-use the Hypershot's energy grapple over the original Swingshot, but not the Dynamo function.
In Size Matters and Deadlocked it was renamed to Swingshot once again, as the Dynamo's function was not used anywhere in-game.
