I'm about to start my first game, and I noticed I can choose to play as Ratchet, Clank, Captain Qwark, or Dr. Nefarious.

Is this just a cosmetic choice, or are there actual gameplay differences depending on which character I choose?

Each hero has a unique weapon that only he can use:

  • Ratchet: the doppelbanger same as the Decoy Glove from the first and second games throw out a dummy to distract the enemies

  • Clank: zoni blaster slows down time

  • Qwark: quantum deflector is an ultimate defense and great for rushing in to smash everything

  • Nefarious: cloaker lets you become invisible

  • When do you get these weapons?

  • as you play along normally early to midway through but I'd have to check exactly when Oct 25, 2011 at 22:46
