The Launcher is a Precursor Artifact in Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.
If channeling Blue Eco near them the pad will automatically activate, warping the air above it. To use it, you must position Jak on top and press the "X" button.
These are used to reach, otherwise, impossible-to-reach areas by launching Jak into the air, either to a higher destination or over a large obstacle in his way.
In Forbidden Jungle, they appear inside the Temple, for retrieving Orbs and for providing an exit out. One can also be found in the canyon as a faster way to reach the ground above.
Lost Precursor CityEdit
In Spider Cave, there are two Launchers. The first is used to escape a spider-infested tunnel in the mission: "Navigate the Spider Tunnel". The second is used to reach some poles which Jak must swing on to reach a Power Cell in the mission: "Launch to the Poles".
Gol and Maia's CitadelEdit
In Gol and Maia's Citadel they are used in a dangerous, and rather tricky, puzzle. Jak must try to jump onto moving Launchers on his way to freeing the Yellow Sage. One is also used in the final battle on the Dark Eco Silo to escape the huge explosions caused by the bombs from Gol and Maia's Precursor Robot. This Launcher is essential as the explosion will otherwise span the entire platform.
