Game company Insomniac Games recently shared new details in the latest PlayStation Magazine Issue (June 2021) about Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart particularly on the first four weapons.
Lead Designer Mike Daly shared details about the four new weapons that Ratchet uses first in the game aside from the handy Omniwrench.
“Since Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart was built from the ground up for PS5, we have access to the broadest palette of techniques and the highest fidelity we’ve ever had for developing weaponry, and our signature creativity for exotic and unexpected weapon concepts in full force,” said Daly. “The weapon experience is shaping up to the incredible.”
Here are the first four weapons that Ratchet can use in the game:
Burst Pistol – An automatic pistol that shoots out green globs of plasma and leaves behind a glowing, sizzling green residue on its targets. Players can have accurate shots or go all out by spraying at enemies at the cost of reduced accuracy.
Shatterbomb – It lobs a bomb at enemies and shatters when hit. It releases an explosive purple energy that devastates anything nearby. Players can feel the haptics when it impacts on something.
Enforcer – It has a similar effect of a double-barrelled shotgun, which is superior for close-range attacks and spreading fire. Instead of bullets, players will be spraying huge bolts of lightning. They can fire one or both barrels at the same time.
Topiary Sprinkler – It acts like a turret that fires on enemies. Players can fire these from a wrist-mounted launcher and when blue and turrets are in place, they automatically shoot water at nearby enemies, turning them into statues with vegetation.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will launch exclusively on PS5 on June 11.
