Ratchet and Clank has found its way into the hearts of many third-person shooter fans. However, let’s be real, most of us that have been playing Ratchet and Clank since the very beginning, well we have fallen in love with the story, and this weird but interesting world. With that said, there are many stories and theories about everything, for example, like how Rivet lost her arm. Today, we know this though, it is not a theory anymore!
How Rivet Lost Her Arm – Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart
A few months ago, to increase the hype that was already surrounding this game, the publishers for Rift Apart also released info cards, that were filled with valuable information about the characters from this game.
With those cards, there were ones solely dedicated to Rivet. In addition, on one of them, it seemed to debunk a lot of theories that players had about why and how Rivet lost her arm.
So, how did she lose her arm? Well, many thought that Emperor Nefarious was the one that chopped Rivet’s arm, and then replaced it with a mechanical one.
This is far from the truth.
In fact, Rivet lost her own arm, granted on her quest to defeat Nefarious’ empire. But the case isn’t that Emperor Nefarious took it himself, but that was the widely accepted theory for quite a while.
How about who found Rivet or possibly saved her? Surprise again, Rivet basically did that by herself.
So, after fleeing, Rivet had to build her own metal arm. Emperor Nefarious didn’t have anything to do with it, Rivet made her own robotic hand, making it even better and stronger.
Mainly this was the thing which allowed many die-hard Ratchet and Clank fans out there find out that Emperor Nefarious didn’t have anything to do with Rivet’s hand, as the info card stated that the hand is made by Rivet herself.
So, quite an interesting fact to know, whether you’re a new Ratchet and Clank player or one which has been following the franchise for quite some time.
