The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
Shock Blaster was Gadgetron shotgun whose designs was lifted off MegaCorp's Blitz Gun, creating a shotgun capable of clearing a room full of Tyhrranoids. It was a close-range shotgun that caused high damage that decreased with distance. When the weapon reached V5, it upgraded into the Shock Cannon.
This weapon was powerful at the beginning of the game, but lost its functionality quickly as better weapons became available. It was useful for taking out large groups of small enemies. However, it wasted up ammo quickly (especially when charged).
These are the Shock Blaster's statistics before upgrading into the Shock Cannon.

The Shock Blaster needs to be upgraded four times before becoming the Shock Cannon.
