The Levitator was a Clank upgrade that allowed Ratchet to fly limitlessly through the air when launched from the special Levitator Pads. It ran on fuel meaning once its tank ran out Ratchet would fall from wherever he was hovering, be it his target or an abyss. In the Future series, it was succeded by the Jetpack which worked similarly but could stay in the air for much longer and also allowed its user to strafe mid-flight.
The Levitator could be acquired from Shady Salesman Billy on planet Joba outside the entrance of the MegaCorp Games. He acquired it from the Blarg and offered it to Ratchet and Clank for 20,000 bolts so that they could enter the arena.
If you have not obtained Clank (by making use of a first person mode wall climbing glitch), Ratchet will levitate on his own when using the Levitator.
- The Levitator was presumably created by the Blarg seeing as the installation instructions were in Blargian.
- Despite the common misconception, you are actually able to fire weapons while using the Levitator.
- When you run out of fuel and you glide down using the heli-pack or thruster-pack, Ratchet will glide down faster than usual.
