Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart: Negatron Collider (Large Negatron Collider)

These are the details for the Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart weapon known as the Negatron Collider, which becomes the Large Negatron Collider at Level 5.

The Negatron Collider is one of the earlier weapons that becomes available at the Vendor in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. By levelling it up, the Negatron Collider becomes the Large Negatron Collider.

Vendors can be located by going to the green icons on any given planet’s map, with more upgrades for the weapon becoming available at the Vendor as you level it up.

How to Unlock and Upgrade the Negatron Collider

You’ll find the Negatron Collider as the sole addition to the Vendor’s store in the third wave of reveals, coming after the Shatterbomb, The Enforcer, and Mr. Fungi.

The Negatron Collider costs 5,000 bolts to unlock, and you’ll need to return to the Vendor to upgrade it with Raritanium. Each of the blue upgrade cells costs one piece of Raritanium to unlock.

Negatron Collider / Large Negatron Collider Upgrades

By the time that you’ve used the Negatron Collider enough for it to reach Level 5, there will be 33 upgrade slots available to buy for one Raritanium each. Unlocking the blue cells around the gold ones will grant you the perks provided by the gold upgrades, of which there are three clusters of three for the Large Negatron Collider.

Blue upgrade tiles:

  • Explosion Radius x6 (increase damage radius of explosion)
  • Charged Beam Duration x14 (increase duration of a fully charged beam)
  • Max Ammo x5 (increase max ammo)
  • Collider Capacitor x8 (charge each shot faster)

Gold upgrade tiles:

  • Beam Destroys Shots x3 (beams vaporise enemy projectiles)
  • Crate Ammo x3 (increase ammo picked up from crates by 2)
  • Pain Train x3 (hit additional enemies with the beam to add bonus damage)

Level 5 Negatron Collider (Large Negatron Collider)

Once you hit Level 5 by using the Negatron Collider a lot, it’ll transform into the Large Negatron Collider, which has 33 upgrade cells that can be purchased for Raritanium.

The Large Negatron Collider boasts full bars for its Explosion Radius, Max Ammo, Charged Beam Duration, and Collider Capacitor once it’s 100 per cent complete.

With high ratings for power, range, and penetration, the Large Negatron Collider is a charged beam weapon that’s effective from afar and against large groups of enemies. While it takes a second to charge, the Negatron Collider will fire a continuous beam that you can drag across several enemies with one shot.
