** The Mega Supernova (The Harbinger's upgraded form) V99. All minor foes are vaporized in one shot, and the bosses take massive damage from it.

Added DiffLines:

** Beam Turrets--they usually come in the form of tiny little laser turrets that drop in at random points, and are usually overlooked right until you get a laser beam in your back. The bigger counterparts also deal truly nasty damage, but are at least easier to see coming.

* ValuesResonance: In 2017, the character Gleeman Vox was noted by being similar to Donald Trump with being involved in controversial media and that they have quite a short temper. Not to mention that they are unpopular.

** By the same token, his deliberately engineered campaigns of public slander and praise, depending entirely on BlatantLies, for people he wants to tear down or build up is eerily similar to the ongoing controversy over "Fake News" and journalistic corruption in the United States that has left public trust in news media at historic lows.

** The "Less Is More" challenge. Fighting off enemies in time before the arena shrinks and crushes you is hard enough--try doing it while your health ''and'' your ammo are shrinking at the same time!

** The Freeze Mod, which not as damaging as the Shock Mod, damn near trivializes combat in the game. It can be acquired fairly early into the game, can equipped to any weapon off the bat, and it actively slows down your opponents attacks to a crawl, making it impossible for them to fight back against you. It makes short work of even the toughest enemies in the game, even the [[DemonicSpiders Executioners and the Laserbacks]], and its an ideal with crowd control weapons.

** Once you get to Challenge Mode, you get the option to buy the Jackpot and XP Alpha Mods. While both are quite expensive to buy, both of them (especially the former) turn the rest of the game into a cakewalk--two jackpot mods alone will allow Ratchet to stack up millions of bolts in mere ''minutes'' and thus quickly acquire all of the Mega weapons and then stack up on other alpha mods, and the XP mod makes it so that each one of your mega weapons can be upgraded to level 99 in a ridiculously short period of time.

** The Sharr level "Landstalker Stalkin'". This level is ''loaded'' with enemies, particularly homing missile turrets, that will rip you to shreds in seconds if you don't think on your feet and spam the mortars like crazy.

** The Sharr level "Landstalker Stalkin'".Stalkin'", especially on Exterminator Difficulty. This level is ''loaded'' with enemies, particularly homing missile turrets, that will rip you to shreds in seconds if you don't think on your feet and spam the mortars like crazy. Making matters worse is that it has two difficult skill points--one where you have to destroy a Landstalker using your wrench, and another where you have to beat it without the Landstalker taking any damage (basically forcing you to play it on-foot).

** Any of the three Skill Points that require you to beat a mission on [[HarderThanHard Exterminator Difficulty.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Sequelitis}}: Downplayed. While Deadlocked is by no means considered a bad game, fans generally consider it to be inferior to the previous Ratchet and Clank games due to the overemphasis on combat while almost completely throwing out the series platformer elements and the extremely repetitive enemies and environments.

* DissapointingLastLevel: The Dreadzone Control Room, which is just four fairly short and straightforward combat levels, all of which are capped off by your defending Merc and Green while they plant bombs.

* ThatOneSidequest: Getting your health bar maxed out to 999. Even with a lot of XP Alpha Mods equipped, it is a ''very'' tedious sidequest that will take you several playthroughs to acoomplish.

* ThatOneSidequest: ThatOneSidequest:
** Getting all six of the Exterminator Cards. In order, you have to get 400,000 Dreadzone points (read: beat every single challenge in the game) upgrade your health up to 100, buy all weapons (including Mega versions) and Omega Mods, get all of the Skill Points, and complete every single mission on [[HarderThanHard Exterminator Difficulty]]. And your reward for all this? You get to unlock the [[BraggingRightsReward Ninja Ratchet skin]], which slightly increases Ratchet's speed and strength.
