The Blaster (named the Bolt Blaster pre-release ) was an auto-targeting blaster manufactured by Gadgetron that used energy bolts as ammunition. It was a great all-purpose weapon. Although its range was limited, its high rate of fire and power made it ideal for taking on tough enemies at close and medium ranges. The blaster spent its ammo fast if Ratchet wasn't careful with his shots.

The Blaster was used regularly throughout the early phases of the game, but later it was usually surpassed by the Devastator. It was ideal for shooting enemies in the air because of its lock-on ability. It could quickly aim at a (usually powerful) air enemy and kill it in a short amount of time.

If the player has the Persuader the product could be purchased for 1,250 Bolts.
