Tank Minions were gigantic, heavily armored brutes found in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. They were led by Commander Spog. One notable Tank Minion was called Mr. Perkins. Tank Minions were minions of the Creature Collector much like Sentry Minions and Cleaner Minions.
Weapons and abilities
Tank Minions attacked with their dual laser cannons by sweeeping a laser beam across the room. They also attacked with timed mines. Mr. Perkins was an elite Tank Minion who shot two beams at once, and had the ability to generate a shield, which made him impervious to the characters' attacks. The only way to deactivate the shield was to conduct a mortar slam on nearby switches, which created a shockwave and temporary cut off the shield's energy. Tank Minions were also too dangerous to fight hand-to-hand as they could stomp the ground and create large shockwaves. Once the Tank Minion's armor was destroyed, it could be finished off with a mortar slam. In the snowy regions of planet Magnus, the armor color of these foes is no longer the normal bronze color, instead it's a dark purple which is stronger than the normal bronze versions.
