While the Taunter doesn't have offensive capacities, it's great for luring enemies into mines, forcefields, or simply into range of your other weapons. The Taunter will also activate any mines you've place into the environment, increasing their effective range. When used in together, Gadgetron's Mine Glove and Taunter are a deadly combination!
―Help Menu description  [R&C]

The Taunter is a weapon manufactured by Gadgetron featured in Ratchet & Clank. It makes comedic noises when fired which draw enemies toward Ratchet and break crates. The weapon lacks ammunition restrictions and can be fired continuously.

The Taunter can be purchased from the Blarg Tactical Research Station and onwards for 2,500 bolts, or 1,500 with the Persuader. The Taunter does not have a gold upgrade.

The Taunter is required for the skill point Hey, over here!, which requires firing the weapon on Orxon to lure a Toxic Crab into a forcefield.

Characteristics

The Taunter appears as a large megaphone, which performs exaggerated movements when fired. It is mostly a dark silver in appearance with a red center and tubes attached to it. Noises made by the Taunter are cartoon-like noises such as burps, whistles, car horns, and barks.

Combat

The Taunter is the most niche weapon in the game, and its use is very situational. However, as it lacks ammunition, there is no drawback to its use. The Taunter's main use is to pull enemies into traps such as electric walls. Additionally, the Taunter can be used in conjunction with the Mine Glove in order to lure enemies into mines.

Behind the scenes

In the beta version of the game the Taunter said 4 different lines in different pitched voices instead of the collection of sound effects it uses in the final game. These were:

  • "Get over Here!"
  • "Hail to the king, baby"
  • "Oh, a wise guy."
  • "You know your shoe lace is untied."

In addition to its use as a weapon, the Taunter's model is used for Captain Qwark's megaphone when speaking to the player at the beginning of Umbris.

The Taunter's red center was originally blue, as seen in early renders.

The Taunter's sounds are actually a collection of library sound effects, possibly for the comedic effect.
