―Weapon Description  [R&C (PS4)]
Artwork Weapon Pixelliser

The Pixelizer was a shotgun weapon developed by Gadgetron. It fires a blast of green energy that damages anyone caught in the blast. It also pixelates the enemies that are damaged in the blast. Enemies killed by the Pixelizer are left pixelated and break apart in pixels afterwards.

At V5, the Pixelizer would upgrade into the Pixeliser HD. It dealt more damage and allowed the user to charge up the weapon for a larger blast.

Raritanium Upgrades

  • Ammo: Increases ammo capacity.
  • Range: Increases how far the blast can reach.
  • Area of Effect: Increases how wide the blast can reach.
  • Overclock Tweak: Decreases the amount of time it takes to charge the Megablast 64 from the Pixelizer HD.

Mystery Upgrades

  • Health Genie: Gives the Pixelizer a chance to generate Nanotech from enemies killed by it.
  • Ammo Shark: Gives the Pixelizer a chance to generate ammo from enemies killed by it.
  • Double Buffer: Increases rate of fire.


  • The weapon bears similarities to the Pixelator, a weapon created and submitted by Drew Wise for the My Blaster Runs Hot weapon contest.[1]
  • Insomniac Games has stated that making the enemies pixelate was one of the hardest challenges to accomplish in the game's development.
