We’re excited to announce the five finalists in the “Captain Qwark’s My Blaster Runs Hot Weapons Contest Sponsored by Gadgetron”! We had a ton of excellent submissions from all sorts of folks. We were very impressed by how good some of your entries were. In fact, some of the entries are weapons that currently live in the Insomniac database, while a few others strike an uncanny resemblance to weapons already making their way into the game!
There were some common submissions, lots of you loved weapons that left enemies in their underwear, and many others suggested a cat launcher. Other favorites were guns that stopped time, morph weapons, and weapons that launched various food items. A couple of weapons were even similar to our finalists below, but in those cases, we always took the best submission. If all other things were equal, the first submission we received got the nod.
The five finalists are below, and you can vote for them for about one week, until Friday, April 24th at 12:01am PST. The weapon with the most votes will be included in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, and we will announce the winning weapon at the International Comic-Con in San Diego. We’ll also be flying the winner out to present them with a real-life replica of their weapon.
Before you check out the finalists and cast your vote, check out this video we made, showing our Top 10 favorite Ratchet & Clank weapons of all time.
