The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
When upgraded to the Infecto Bomb, the weapon fired an exploding charge packed with several blobs to infect multiple enemies.
This weapon could be upgraded to the Mega Infecto-Bomb when playing the game again in challenge mode. This upgrade cost 220,000 bolts (or 198,000 with Gadgetron discount). It had a long range with power of 4000 and held up to 20 shots which cost 20 bolts each. At 10,000 experience points, it would upgrade to the Giga Infecto-Bomb and at 15,000 points, it upgraded to the Omega Infecto-Bomb.
Pros and cons
- Infected enemies, causing damage over time and brainwashing them to have groups of enemies turn against each other.
- Fully upgraded, it could infect multiple enemies at once.
- It was enjoying to see enemies attack each other.
- Very useful tactically, as it could be used to conserve ammo from other guns by using other.enemies to fight. In addition, it gained experience if the enemies fought each other as well.
- Not very powerful.
- Until V5, it was—generally—hard to use.

Hints & Tips
Behind the scenes
- Before Up Your Arsenal's release, the Infector was not a projectile weapon but instead fired a ray by holding down O. An IGN pre-release video showing this can be seen here.
