The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
Like all of the other Gold Weapons, this upgraded edition was available at a special room that could be accessed on Novalis after completing the original campaign. In Challenge Mode, this room held all of the upgrades available for the entire game for a fee consisting of both regular bolts and gold bolts. The Gold Tesla Claw was one of the most expensive; its price being 60,000 bolts in addition to four gold bolts. The only other weapon which cost as much was the Gold Devastator.
The green beam was similar to the beam of Mega Tesla Claw, but the appearance of the actual weapon was different since the Mega version did not have the golden sheen.
Against hoardes of enemies, due to several factors including that it fired at two targets at once, caused double the damage of the already powerful Tesla Claw, had more ammo than the Gold Blaster and spent ammo slower than the Gold Blaster, it was probably the most effective weapon in the game.
