Infobot render

An Infobot in the original game

Infobots were small robots that contained various recordings or broadcasts, and contained coordinates to the planet of their respective origins. Their video-contents were played automatically when Ratchet or Clank approached them, on each Infobots' flat square-shaped screen which was contained inside their mouths, revealed when they expanded the distance between their metallic jaws.

Ratchet & Clank

In the original game, Infobots played a major part in the storyline as they helped Ratchet and Clank gain information and coordinates to other planets. After they were played, Clank stored them inside his radiator core.

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

Infobots were no longer used in Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, as they were replaced with normal screens, TVs and radio transmissions. However, a Female Infobot with a love-interest in Clank makes an infrequent appearance throughout the game, even once aiding Ratchet and Clank escape the Thugs-4-Less flying prison. She was finally seen at the MegaCorp Headquarters when she warn them that Qwark was posing as Mr. Fizzwidget the whole time, she was then shot down by Qwark after revealing his plan. In response to Clank's dismay, Ratchet had repaired her.

Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile

In Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile, Infobots were used in the digital world to gain coordinates for Secret Agent Clank locations, such as Maktar Casino.

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction


An Infobot in Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

In Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Qwark gave Ratchet and Clank two Infobots throughout the course of the game that he was able to steal from Emperor Percival Tachyon. One of the two was badly damaged and could not open its mouth, and could only be played through Aphelion. These new Infobots resembled binoculars when completely inactive and they played videos by opening their mouth like a lid rather than expanding it.

Insomniac Games used these new Infobot models placed around various levels to play voice clips from Insomniac Employees, which are accessible after unlocking Tools of Production.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

Infobots made no direct appearance in the game. However, cutscenes including them from the first game were shown on the screens in Clank's subconscious.

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

An Infobot appeared only once to give Ratchet and Clank the coordinates to the Thugs arena, in a similar manner to the first game.
