Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (RCF) is Insomniac's fifth At the end of each cycle, these pieces were brought together, often resulting in a play Another big help was our "first party" developer/producer relationship with Sony. I still didn't fully understand what happened to Clank at the end, When the Zoni Creatures took him, where did he go and which ratchet and clank game. A Crack In Time is easily the best Ratchet & Clank game on the PS3, seen in the trailer for Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction.
Tools of Destruction is the first game where Ratchet, Clank and other characters converse with one another with lipsynced dialogue during gameplay, outside of cutscenes. The player also has the ability to pilot a ship against enemy forces in certain levels, similar to those in previous installments; however, the free-flying controls were changed to more of a rail shooter -style experience, and upgrade options for the ship are not present.
At times, the player will control Clank in a mode similar to previous games, using beings of pure energy called Zoni to fight foes, remove debris or reconstruct bridges, and to power devices in the level. Clank possesses the ability to slow down time as well during these sections, allowing him, for example, to make his way under a rapidly closing door as well as levitate.
Weapons gain experience as previously implemented in the series, but in addition, the player can collect Raritanium crystals and use them to upgrade the weapon in additional ways beyond the experience path; weapon improvements are presented in a tree-like structure and require that all previous upgrades be obtained for that weapon first before later upgrades can be purchased. O series of weapons make an appearance in Tools of Destruction with the R.
O IV, which can be obtained by collecting thirteen Holo-Plan fragments hidden throughout the game. In addition to weapons are items known as "devices".
While they are selected and used similar to weapons, they may or may not directly damage foes but instead provide an effect beneficial to the player.
The "Groovitron", for example, is a disco ball that causes all foes to dance for a brief time, allowing the player to deal with them while distracted. The carrying capacity of such devices are generally very low 2 or 3 units for each. Device vendors in addition to weapon vendors can be found in the game, and device ammo can be found in Raritanium chests, although these are usually hard to find.
Armor can be bought from an armor vendor on certain planets. Each upgrade to the armor decreases the amount of damage the player takes from enemy weapons. Each armor upgrade costs a large amount of bolts. Plot[ edit ] On planet Kerwan, Ratchet and Clank are working on a hovercraft. Clank receives a distress call from Captain Qwark. At the last second, the duo slip past him and escape on his private cruiser. After experiencing a deep hyper sleep, they wake up to find themselves on planet Cobalia in the Polaris galaxy.

Learning that Tachyon has already conquered many neighboring planets, they decide to learn more about him. In the course of their investigation, Clank is visited by small creatures called the Zoni that only he can see. The Zoni explain that Clank was built for a special purpose, and provide him with new abilities to aid Ratchet.
This robot contained an infobot detailing a message from blarg Chairman Drek to the citizens of planet Novalisinforming them that Novalis would be destroyed to help him construct his new planet.
As the robot came equipped with the latest in robotic ignition systems,  Ratchet could now start his ship, resolved to search the galaxy with this robot, to find and ally with Captain Qwark to defeat Chairman Drek. While leaving Veldin, Ratchet asked the robot's name, which he gave as B, though Ratchet instead named him Clank after he hit the side of the ship.
When the two completed the training course on Umbris, Qwark offered them a position at his side to step into the "Ring of Heroes", a trap that Ratchet was suspicious of, but that Clank walked into. Qwark betrayed them, revealing he was working for Drek as a spokesperson for his new world, and left them to die to his pet blargian snagglebeast. After defeating it, Ratchet became angry towards Clank over this, and vowed only to seek revenge against Qwark, mostly unconcerned with Drek's plan.
However, as Ratchet still required a robotic ignition system to fly a starship, Clank offered him an ultimatum that he would only start Ratchet's ships if he agreed to help planets under threat from Drek, starting with helping the Commando on planet Batalia. Ratchet, on planet Batalia The two later confronted Qwark and shot down his spaceship at the Gemlik Base in the orbit of planet Oltanis.

After celebrating in Qwark's defeat, an infobot showed the extent of the damage the blarg were doing under Drek to Gorda City on Oltanis' surface, prompting a change of heart in Ratchet, in which he made peace with and apologized to Clank, now determined to stop Drek. While exploring QuartuRatchet learned that Drek was going to use a weapon called the Deplanetizer to destroy planet Veldin so that his new planet could replace Veldin's orbital position in the star system.
This enraged Ratchet, driving him to seek vengeance and defeat Drek. He eventually confronted Drek over the Deplanetizer on Veldin, and the two defeated Drek by propelling him to his new world, and destroying it with the Deplanetizer while he was still on the planet.
After this, Ratchet and Clank did not part ways, and the two bonded to become lifelong friends. The re-imagined game describe Captain Qwark 's account of events, while the re-imagined film is an in-universe holofilm. As Qwark is an unreliable narrator, and the holofilm is fiction, any events that contradict the original are non-canon though those which correspond still apply.
Grimroth, with Ratchet as an infant. In Qwark's retelling and the holofilm, Ratchet's story is slightly different. Ratchet begins on Veldin in the garage of Grimroth Razzhis boss, where he is a reckless mechanic who installs unnecessary modifications on ships after clients only requested a repair, who dreams of greater things and idolizes the Galactic Rangers. When Captain Qwark and the Rangers host tryouts on the planet looking for a new recruit in the wake of Chairman Drek's destruction of planets, Ratchet convinces Grimroth Razz to allow him to participate in the tryouts, only to be rejected by Qwark, due to his reckless past and his inexperience.
Returning home solemn, Ratchet then spotted a ship crash land from the sky, and investigated it to recover the robot inside, whom he nicknamed Clank. Ratchet, eager to help, claimed to be a friend of the Rangers, and the two set off to the city. After crash landing on Novalis, where the Plumber repaired his ship,  Ratchet arrived on Kerwan, and made use of the Mag Booster he installed on his ship to propel warbots into a Class G Dreadshipand stopped the invasion.

Ratchet landed on the planet to applause, and after being put on the spot by interviewer Dallas WanamakerQwark made Ratchet a Ranger, giving him a training course, and granting him a protosuit and a new starship. As well as rescuing Skidd McMarx on Aridia and competing in Rilgar's hoverboard races, Ratchet took on many missions for the Galactic Rangers, including investigating the Blarg Tactical Research Station and planet Gaspar for new equipment, as well as fighting on planet Batalia.
Throughout this, Qwark grew jealous of Ratchet's popularity, while Cora Veralux and Brax Lectrus were visibly annoyed by him, which Ratchet was blissfully unaware of. At the beginning of the battle, Qwark puzzled the Rangers by claiming he would "reason with Drek", and deactivated his communicators, going alone.
Ratchet, fearing Qwark's safety, flew to the Deplanetizer himself, losing his starfighter in the process, and infiltrated the station to disable it. Drek, humiliating Ratchet, caught him with a Mag-Net Launcherand took Ratchet to a shuttle home so that he could witness his failure first hand. On the way to a shuttle, Ratchet saw Qwark relaxing with other blarg in the Deplanetizer, realizing that Qwark had betrayed the Rangers due to his jealousy of Ratchet.
Ratchet then returned to Veldin, solemn after his defeat, and returning to his old life. Clank returned to Veldin later, attempting to convince Ratchet to rejoin. With a push from Grimroth Razz, proud of how far Ratchet had come, Ratchet then rejoined the Rangers as their leader, to which they welcomed his return. The Rangers then deduced that Dr. NefariousDrek's mad scientist, was simply using Drek to humiliate the Rangers by seeing them fail, and that the Deplanetizer's next target, Umbris, would destroy not only Umbris but several planets with it.Ratchet and Clank - Tools of Destruction - 138 - Credits
Ratchet confronted Qwark, and after a battle with him, convinced him of the error of his ways, causing him to help them fight Dr. The three managed to defeat Nefarious, causing him to crash land on Umbris, and fled the Deplanetizer shortly before it was destroyed, while the Rangers caused the Deplanetizer to destroy New Quartu with Drek still on it.
Ratchet walks with Clank on Veldin. Afterwards, Ratchet returned home to Veldin, before being visited by Clank again, who would become his lifelong companion. Celebrated as galactic heroes, Ratchet and Clank both appeared in an interview for Behind the Hero in which they detailed their life following Drek's defeat, and Ratchet claimed he was busy in a "domestic sense", believing "no one needs a hero right now".
