The Holoshield Glove was a weapon made manufactered by Gadgetron that allowed Ratchet to deploy a small holoshield in front of him. The shield could deflect energy-based projectiles, yet due to its holographic nature, enemies could still pass through it. When upgraded, the Holoshield Glove turned into the Ultrashield Glove, and reflected enemy shots as well as drains health from nearby enemies and transferring it to the Lombax. If the player had trouble upgrading the glove, they should try the first auto turret on the last Tyhrranosis Ranger mission. For more effect, throwing one or two holoshields in front of the laser in the Annihilation Nation deathcourse made sure Ratchet wasn't risked being attacked as often while upgrading the weapon.
