The Plasma Sprinkler Glove is a weapon designed 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.[2] The weapon was originally designed as a weed killer; however, it was eventually banned.

The Bubble Shot is a weapon designed by a Ratchet & Clank fan for the Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time weapon contest. It was one of the five finalists given to the public to vote on.[2] The Bubble Shot fires corrosive bubbles. Smaller bubbles that move quickly can be created using small amounts of ammo or larger; slower moving bubbles can be made which use up more ammo and cause much more damage.[6]

The bubble shot is very similar in game mechanics and aesthetics to the in-game Dynamo of Doom/Dynamo of Devastation weapons, which charges up shots that use more ammo, do more damage and are larger than a single button press, only they use electricity rather than bubbles of acid.

Qwark Machine

It was one of the five finalists given to the public to vote on.[2] The planned use of the Super-Sized Sticky Hand Toy was to be slapping enemies or, if used in a different mode, wrapping around them and allowing the user to throw the enemy around using the SIXAXIS motion sensitive controller.[8]

Trivia

  • The original picture of Qwark standing on the destroyed robot, can be found in Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, after getting all of the skill points in the game. In the original version, Qwark is not holding a gun and a big robot with blades is behind him.
