As any longtime Ratchet lover would expect, Tools features an all-new arsenal with more than twenty new weapons that include the missile-launching Negotiator, the saw shooting Buzz Blades, and the self-explanatory Fusion Grenades. And all are augmented by a new, non-linear upgrade system that uses linked hexagons to let players chose how they'd like to improve their killing power.
Though amid all those additions, there is one glaring omission: multiplayer. "We felt that, by doing a multiplayer mode, it would've cost the single-player one," Allgeier explains. "and we really wanted to put all our efforts into the single-player mode. Besides, a huge percentage of Ratchet players just play the single-player game; that's what our fans want."
