0003 Holoflux Armor WM

The aqua blue Holoflux Armour, the most basic example of armor in A Crack in Time.

The Holoflux Armor is the original armor Ratchet wears at the start of A Crack in Time, and offers the wearer zero protection from anything that will damage him. This item appears as Ratchet's armor for practically every piece of promotion done for the game, even in screenshots of later levels where it'd be harder to play the level in this starting armor set.

The Holoflux Armor has the shortest shoulder pads of any armor set in A Crack in Time. All other armors have the light piece extended by an inch or two. The Emblem for the Holoflux Armor resembles a Wrench, which is appropriate due to it's resemblance to Lombax armor.


  • The Armor of A Crack in Time is unique among all Ratchet games in the fact that it is in fact holographic armor. This allows for Ratchet to retain a consistent look throughout cinematics and in-game cutscenes. However, there are some differences between a scene and gameplay. The most noticeable one is that the lights for the armor turn off during scenes, and Ratchet's helmet retracts, leaving his cap visible. A more easily missed difference is that the emblems are always that of the Holoflux Armor no matter what type of Armor Ratchet is wearing at the time. The final difference is that the shoulder pads are always the shorter Holoflux variety.
  • The -flux armor in A Crack in Time resembles the Lombax Armor worn by Azimuth and Kaden, particularly the large circular light on Ratchet's chest, which is placed on the right side.
