- ―GrummelNet's description [ACiT]
The Spiral of Death was a weapon that charged up kinetic energy into a spiral and shot it. The energy spirals curved back towards the weapon after firing, allowing for one spiral to hit enemies again on the return run. It upgraded into the Spiral of Carnage which fired three spirals at once. The Spiral of Death was the prize for completing the Silver Cup in the Battleplex Arena.
- It was designed by the Fongoids.

The Spiral of Death was the winning weapon design by a Ratchet & Clank fan in the Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time weapon contest. It was one of the five finalists given to the public to vote on for a chance to appear in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. It was revealed at Comic-Con that the Spiral of Death would be in A Crack in Time.
