The Vortex Cannon also had a faster rate of fire, and could hold nearly twice as much ammo as the Suck Cannon.
A Suck Cannon upgrade could only be legally sold to those over 18 years of age, as evidenced by Slim Cognito "accidentally" selling the upgrade to a minor in Up Your Arsenal. He assured Ratchet and Clank after explaining the story to them by swearing that "the kid looked eighteen."
Behind the scenes
- A glitch in the high-definition re-release of Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal can corrupt any weapon in the game. Corrupted weapons have the name: Paradox EER, with a Power level of 0 and Ammo: 012/000. Corrupted weapons will freeze the game if selected from the Quick Select. The glitch results in the player being unable to get the "Suck it up!" skill point and trophy, the "Omega Arsenal" trophy, the "Omega Man" trophy, the "Hero of the Galaxy" platinum trophy.
