This weapon's multi-lock sensor array can guide deadly predator rockets to several targets simultaneously.
— Weapon Description (PS4), PS4

The Predator Launcher was a top-secret blargian weapon manufactured by Drek Industries that could lock onto multiple targets and fire Predator missiles at them. As the user held down the trigger, it released Predator missiles into the air. The missiles locked on to nearby enemies and launched themselves at their target when the trigger was released. Ratchet discovered the weapon while aboard the Blarg warship.
