This gruesome weapon was too much for Resistance

During his keynote address at PAX Prime 2012 earlier today, Insomniac Games president Ted Price took the time to answer numerous questions from the audience. In doing so, he revealed an interesting piece of Resistance history that never saw the light of day.
One attendee asked Price to name his favorite scrapped item from the Ratchet & Clank series, the coolest gadget or weapon that, for whatever reason, never made it into the final product. Price was unable to think of one from past Ratchet titles, but his mind immediately strayed to a particular Resistance weapon that didn't make the final cut. "The Tapper", as he called it, would've enabled players to shoot sharpened pieces of metal pipe into Chimeran enemies. These pipes would quite literally "tap" enemies, much like maple syrup harvesters tap trees for sap.
The result? Spouts of blood that drain from enemies like a fountain. Imagine the tap pictured below, gushing blood instead of dripping sap. Also, add ten more.
It's too bad that we won't ever see this gloriously gruesome weapon in action... Or will we? Stay tuned to PSU.com for more, and let us know what you think of The Tapper in the comments below.

Awesome the tapper gun! Resistance series has some of the best weapons. Resistance 1 was a great game, 2 had the splicer. Resistance 3 has the best weapons out of all 3 games. In Resistance 3 theres a lot of new weapons, cryo gun (freeze gun), The atomizer ( the ghostbuster gun), the mutator ( bubble gun), wildfire ( rocket launcher). Along with all the other weapons. Noticably missing is the splicer from resistance 2. The sniper gun is chrimera so the resistance 2 human sniper rifle is gone.All the old weapons are upgraded with more ammo and more perks. The only thing missing from resistance 3 are the air vents you fly around on those are alot of fun in Resistance 1 and 2.
