While at any planet, tap R1(2) to start hovering. You will
be able to hover around the rooms without landing. You can land
by pressing X.
Get the Thruster Pack and go into hover mode. Then, enter the
options menu and change your Thruster Pack to your Heli Pack.
When you exit the menu screen, you will hover without your Thruster
Pack. Note: When you press X you will stop hovering.
Hint: Wrench first person crosshairs:
When in first person mode (L1), swing your wrench using
Square, then press R1 to turn on its crosshairs.
Hint: Gold Morph-O-Ray:
Once you have the Gold Morph-O-Ray, use it to change any enemy
into a giant chicken. It will distract the other enemies and they
will attack it. The chicken will then blow up, causing damage
to the other enemies near by.
Hint: Jet fighting:
When you are flying your jet fighter at the Jowai Resort, Pokitaru,
or when facing Captain Quark, you can fire your Mega Guns and
Missiles at the same time. A faster way is to hold R1 +
To get the Persuader, go to Jowai Resort. Go to the
Island Sewers and get to the end of them. Talk to the inventor
and he will ask you for some Raratanium. Then, go to planet Orxan
and explore as Ratchet with the O2 mask. Go to the left and go
up the ledge. At the end of that road, a person with a broken
drill will ask for help. Have Ratchet fix it and you will get
the Raratanium. Return to the Jowai Resort and go to the inventor
to get the Persuader. The Persuader will give you a discount (about
25%) at the Gadgetron weapon store.
Whenever you are swinging on the yellow Swingshot holders,
you do not have to let go. You can be still, spin, or by yourself
Hint: Walloper shield:
When you get the Walloper, you can use it as a shield
against some projectile weapons. As soon as a shot is coming towards
you, press Circle with the Walloper and it just dissipates.
Unfortunately it does not work against Bosses,some of the big
enemies, and flame throwers.
Hint: Easy skill points:
Go to Kalebo 3. Go to the overboard person and enter.
Go through the level until you see a Boost Plate and a Rocket.
From about four feet back, turn left. You will see another part
of the race track. Land on it, hit the ramp, and do a trick. After
you land it, the "Wrong way" message will appear. You
will be transported behind the place you fell of at. Keep repeating
this until you have 4,500 or more points. Then, quit and you will
have a skill point.
In the Planet Hoven level, there are two skill points. When you
get out of your ship, move a slight distance from your ship and
take out your Suck Cannon. Metal frogs should appear from the
ground. Keep sucking them in and hurling them out. You will get
a lot of Bolts and earn a skill point. The second one is obtained
after earning the Raritanium. Go out of the place and shoot as
many helicopters as you can with your Devastator Gun. You will
automatically earn another skill point.
While traveling through the Gemlik Base, Oltanis Orbit, you will
notice eight ships parked on different roofs. Equip the Visibomb
gun and shoot all eight ships. When this has been done, you will
have earned a skill point.
After buying the Devastator, go back to planet Kerwan and shoot
the fake Captain Qwark to earn a skill point.
Go to the logging site and take out your Blaster. Go all the way
to the right until you cannot go any further. Then, use the Blaster
to take out flying ships. Shoot as many as possible until you
earn a skill point.
Hint: Twisty McMarks skill point:
The Twisty McMarks skill point can be difficult to
obtain. You must use all four trick buttons (R2, R1,
L2, and L1) in one trick before touching the ground,
and you must stick the landing. The best place to do this is the
largest jump, which is the ramp that comes just after a speed
pad and goes over a small edge in front of a boost ring. Hit the
boost and fly off the ramp. You must go very high for this to
work. You only need one revolution per flip. As soon as Ratchet
finishes one kind of flip, do another, and do all four flips.
If done correctly, Ratchet will land the Twisty McMarks and you
get the skill point.
Hint: Easy Bolts:
After receiving the metal detector, go back to previous
planets and search for hidden Bolts. Not only does the metal detector
help you find more, but the planets' items also respawn after
you leave it.
Do the hoverboard races repeatedly. You can get 1000 to 2000 Bolts
for each race.
Note: This trick requires a controller with an auto-fire feature.
In Kerwen, there is a little tunnel by the Gadgetron Vendor that
all the cars fly into. Each car is worth four whole Bolts. Fly
down into the tunnel (there is a golden bolt here). Maneuver yourself
in line with an oncoming set of cars, hold L1 and adjust
your view. Then, set Square to auto-fire and keep it held.
Allow the game to idle in this state for several hours and you
will have enough to buy some golden weapons or perhaps a RYNO.
Go to any planet with a Monster Deployer. Then, get the Suck Cannon
out and start sucking all of the monsters up. You can get a lot
of Bolts this way. You go back into the planet to get more Bolts
or if you accidentally destroyed the Deployer.
This trick requires the Taunter Gun, the ability to race a Hoverboard,
the Bolt Magnet, and the Hologuise. Go to Blackwater City and
enter the race with the Hologuise on, so you can walk the track
without racing. Run down the track until you find the platform
with a wall of boxes on it far above your head. Take out the Taunter
Gun and walk just below the platform, out of sight. The "blobs"
should be in front of you. Hold Circle and the gun should
break the boxes that are out of sight and continue to drop Bolts.
Keep the button pressed -- the boxes immediately respawn after
they are out of sight. You can get an unlimited number of Bolts
if you allow the game to idle in this state.
After picking up the Codebot in Drek's Fleet (Veldin Orbit), return
tothe Robot Planet (Quartu). Use the Codebot to open the secret
area by the robot arena, then transform into Giant Clank. Fight
your way through a round in the robot arena. Then, instead of
transforming back, walk off the edge of the walkway. When you
regenerate as Giant Clank, you will be invulnerable. Walk back
into the arena, and repeat as this as many times as desired.
On the Hoverboard race at the Gadgetron Site (Kalebo III), just
after the big block of metal boxes before the big jump into a
fork, jump to the left. You should land on a platform near the
beginning. Jump over the water onto the platform. You must land
on the platform or this trick will not. Make a sharp right turn
into the water. You should end up at the end of the first turn,
before the platform you jumped off. Repeat this for an unlimited
score. You will get 1000 Bolts for every new record.
The best way to get tons of bolts is to go to planet Quartu, especially
after you have already completed this level. Go to the machine
that turns you into Giant Clank. When you are Giant Clank, go
into the arena. You will end up fighting the mechs and the planes
again, like in the mission. This can be easily done by standing
at the entrance and continuously shooting your rockets at your
enemies. After you have destroyed them all, walk to the back of
the arena and even more Bolts will fly to you. After you have
gotten everything, leave the arena and jump off the cliff. It
will start the fight again and you will have all the Bolts you
had before. You will receive about 1,500 to 2,000 Bolts per fight.
Note: It is helpful if you have the Bolt Grabber.
To get more Bolts, hit the light poles. Only certain ones will
give you extra Bolts.
You must have the Hologuise to do this trick. Go to Black Water
City in Rilgar and use the Hologuise. Enter the race as a robot.
You will be able to walk on the ground instead of race. You no
longer need the Hologuise. Go to the big jump with all the boxes
on top of the platform. Stand under it and take out the Taunter.
Stand under the platform. You will know when you are under because
the Bolts will start flying down. Keep your button held. You will
get about 1,850 to 2,000 Bolts per minute.
In any city that has space ships flying around, use your blaster
to shoot the ships. If you hit a ship, you will receive 3 to 5
Bolts. Hit as many ships as you can to keep getting more Bolts.
Note: If you do this, some sound effects such as the swishing
sound when you swing your wrench may not work for a few seconds.
To fix this problem, kill an enemy and the sounds should return
to normal. If not, repeat it a few times.
Go to Planet Batalia and get out either the Teisa Claw or Suck
Canon. Destroy all the Bots and use the Taunter by the door that
you use the Trespasser. There is a large number of crates that
reappear when you leave or load.
Use the following trick to get unlimited Bolts and a Gold Bolt.
On planet Kerwan, when you reach the platform were the vendor
is located, turn right and stand on the taxi that goes to Al's
Robo Shack. Do a Stretch Jump (facing the vendor), then drop down.
To get unlimited Bolts, crouch down and keep firing your wrench
at the cars. Each car is worth 4 Bolts.
At the start of a planet near your ship, kill nearby enemies and
get the Bolts. Then, kill yourself and the enemies will reappear.
Repeat this as many times as desired.
At Out Post 11, to get the Bolt behind the fence, use the Bomb
Glove on the rock.
Use your Suck Cannon when you defeat an enemy and get them all.
Go to any planet except the one with the Hoverboard challenge.
Then, go to the planet with the Hoverboard challenge. If you have
already completed it and have obtained the board upgrade (for
tricks), there should not be a high score or time. Complete it
with a score of ten and a very long time. Then, play it again
and get a score of ten and a slightly shorter time. Each time,
get the same trick score and a better time. When your time is
unbeatable, then get higher trick scores. When both your trick
score and time are unbeatable, leave the planet, then return and
start again. Each time you beat your score, you will get 1000
This trick requires a hoverboard and the Platinum Zoomerator.
Enter the Hoverboard race in Blackwater City. Win the race with
10 points. Keep winning the race, making sure you have 10 more
points than the last time you won the race. You will gain 1,000
Bolts each time. If you find it too difficult to get the correct
amount of points, leave the planet and return to reset your high
score to zero.
Go to the hoverboard race on Planet Rilgar and enter it. Do one
trick and finish the race. It does not matter what place you are
in. You should end up with 1,000 more Bolts than before. Repeat
this as many times as desired, only getting 10 more points each
Have the Hologuise and Taunter. Go to Planet Rilger. Turn into
a robot and walk to the jump with a lot of boxes. Go underneath
of it. Use the Taunterm hold Circle, and wait.
On Planet Kerwan, before you get on the flying train turn left.
Go behind the crates and there will be a wall of money boxes at
the back of the room.
On Planet Kerwan (the level where you get the heli-pack upgrade)
go to the tunnel. Enter first person mode and hit cars with your
wrench. After over ten minutes you can buy the R.Y.N.O.
Go to Black Water city. Go to the hoverboard races. Use the Hologuise
from the Gadgetron site. Enter the race and you should be able
to walk. Walk forward to the platform with a lot of crates. Use
the Tauter and you should be able to get bolts easily by holding
Hint: Gold Bolts:
When you first begin the Tobruk Crater, Novalis level,
go to your right and travel through the waterway. Stop when you
reach the room with Hornet Robots. To your left are two walls
with a narrow space between each other. Wall jump up them to find
the first Gold Bolt.
Behind your ship in the Tobruk Crater, Novalis level and past
the pond is an entrance to a cave. Enter the cave. When you reach
the large room with three circular pools, past the first underwater
tunnel, go to the very left of the ground at the two green mushrooms.
In front of them is the blocked entrance to the Gold Bolt. Note:
You will need the Devastator, Visibomb Gun, or R.Y.N.O. to destroy
the boulder blocking the entrance.
When you reach to the bridge with the holes in the Tobruk Crater,
Novalis level, go under it to the left. You will see a long tunnel.
Go through it and eventually you will see an opening to a large
cave with a Gold Bolt and lots of ammunition and regular Bolts.
When you first start out in Metropolis Kerwan, go behind where
you are on the edge of the ledge. You will need the Heli-Pack
or Thruster-Pack to hover down into this secret tunnel. You should
notice ships are flying through the tunnel in the building. You
will find a Gold Bolt there.
When you are at the top of the tallest tower in the fitness course
in Metropolis Kerwan and just stopped wall jumping, go forward
until at the edge. Look slightly left and down. You will see a
part in a building where you can hover to. Do so, and you will
find a Gold Bolt.
When you come off the escalator at the train station in Metropolis
Kerwan, look to the right. You should see a low stack of suitcases.
Use your Heli-Pack to get over there. You will see a few separate
one stack suitcases. Use those or the boxes behind the stack with
the Gold Bolt to reach it.
At Outpost X11 Arida, when you are at the place where you find
the trespasser, look down over the edge. You should see a slow-spinning
piece of land. You will find a Gold Bolt there.
Go to Skid's agent at Outpost X11 Arida until you are face-to-face
with him. Then, turn southwest and have the camera facing the
exact direction as you are. In front of you behind some items,
there is a magnetic pathway that leads to ammo, regular Bolts,
and a Gold Bolt. Note: You must have the Magneboots in order to
get up the pathway.
Immediately when you are at the place where you just jumped off
the ledge on the ground leading to Skid's agent at Outpost X11
Arida, just before you cross the mud leading to him, turn 90 degrees
to the right. You should see a land area where it does not connect
to any other land area (like an island). Go over there. You will
find a big truck to your left, with a Gold Bolt in the back.
Just past Skid at Outpost X11 Arida, there is a Gold Bolt behind
a metal-fenced wall that is indestructible to even the R.Y.N.O.
There is a boulder blocking another entrance. This one is destructible.
Keep traveling forward, to the right past two bridges and you
will reach a dead end. From there, face the direction where the
Gold Bolt is located. The boulder should be there. Destroy it,
and the Gold Bolt is yours. Note: You must use the R.Y.N.O., Devastator,
or the Visibomb Gun to destroy the boulder.
At Blarg Station Nebula G34, after you have played as Clank and
have completed the level, you can play Clank's part as Ratchet.
Go to the place where Clank first had to use his Heli-Chopper.
Look to the right. You should see a ledge. Use your Heli-Pack
or Thruster-Pack to get over there to find a Gold Bolt. Note:
This must be done as Ratchet.
At Blarg Station Nebula G34, when you enter a large room where
two weirdo's have just jumped off two separate ledges, use your
Heli-Pack or Thruster-Pack to get onto the ledge on the right.
Keep running forward until you see an opening to a cave. Inside,
you will find ammunition, regular Bolts, and a Gold Bolt.
At Logging Site Eudora, after you get off your ship, keep moving
forward to the right and jump of the ledge. You will be at an
area where there are four Cutter Robots. Look up to your right,
and you should see the Gold Bolt.
At Quark's HQ Umbris, at the area where you just swing-zipped
for the first time in the level, look to the right. You will see
a large round building. To the right of that is a circular weight-triggered
key with two others around the building. Step on all of them to
get lots of regular Bolts, and a Gold Bolt.
At Quark's HQ Umbris, when you just come off of the ladder to
the pools where you have to use your Hydrodisplacer, go to the
second pool. Go up the stairs, and to the right, jump off. You
should find a Gold Bolt.
At Blackwater City Rilgar, when you just get off the elevator
to the laser fence area, wait until you have completed it. When
you are finally done, go onto the sewer lid. When it is in the
air, turn in the opposite direction of the tank. You will see
the tops of the security fences. Go onto them to get to the Gold
At Blackwater City Rilgar, get to the part when racing against
the flowing water in the long, large, tunnel, and are just about
to go onto the narrow stairway. Instead of taking that route,
look down into the overflowing pool to the right. Take that tunnel
to get a Gold Bolt. Note: You need the Hydro-Pack and O2 Mask
to reach it.
At Kogor Refinery Orxon, return with the O2 mask and play Clank's
part in the laboratories. Notice that it is locked. Go to the
part where it shows a turret blowing up two aircraft. Take that
entire route (through the bomb field, through the maze, across
the bridge over lava, and past the part where you need ten robots
to unlock the door showing you the turret blowing up two aircraft).
After all of this, the wall-fenced gate will be unlocked. Travel
through the laboratories until you see a room to the left with
a lava-mouthed pit. Go up the stairs and go to the ledge. You
will see another ledge with some frogs in the background. Go over
there and keep traveling ahead until you reach a floor with yellow
lava and steam coming from underneath. On that floor, to the left
ahead slightly, you will see two narrow walls. Wall jump up them
to find a Gold Bolt.
When your at the bomb field at Kogor Refinery Orxon playing as
Ratchet, you will see a sideways mouthed pit. Use your Visibomb
Gun to destroy that wall and other walls throughout it until you
reach the last one. When you are done, go to the other end to
get plenty of ammunition, regular Bolts, and the Gold Bolt.
At Fort Krontos Batalia, when you first begin, keep going ahead
until you reach the building where you have to use your Trespasser
to unlock the door. You can wall jump up the two walls to find
a Gold Bolt.
At Fort Krontos Batalia, when you reach the end of the first long
bridge where you have to screw in a giant bolt, look to your right.
You will see three different elevated land areas. Look past that
and you will see a ledge, which leads to a Gold Bolt.
Go to Planet Batalia to where the first batch of one eyed robots
are located. Look to your left and you will see a place where
you use your Tresspasser. Wall jump up the gap. You will find
a Gold Bolt.
In Gorda City, after you have used your Grind Boots on the short
bit, look up to see a Swingshot Beacon. Use your Swingshot and
you will find a Gold Bolt.
To get the Gold Bolt on the last level (behind the blue force
field), equip the Taunter and use it on the bouncing alien. He
will activate the button on the other side.
Go down the dock to where you met the islander. Continue down
the dock. After destroying all the fish, face the waterfalls and
go into the water. Swim around to the back of the island. Face
the island and from the back you will see a wall. Go to the far
right side of the wall where it touches the rocks. Swim through
the rocks and you will appear in a little cavern inside the island.
Go up the steps. At the top, power slam the large bolt. Cross
the bridge, defeat all the fish, and at the top of the waterfalls
is the Gold Bolt.
On Planet Veldin, just after when you are at the place with water
and rocks, go to the next area. There should be a little stand
to the right. Hop up on it and look to the right. You should see
a platform. Jump to it and grind the rail. In the room is a Gold
On Planet Hoven, after leaving the ship, get past the Gadgetron
vendor and fight the metal dogs and also the fire throwing robots.
After they are all gone, stand near the trees that are on the
right-hand side. Go behind them and pass a building on the right.
Around that corner are about fifty metal dogs. After they are
all gone you will find a gadget which looks like oxygen tanks
going up and down. Stand behind it so that you are sandwiched
with the wall then bounce up. Bounce to the wall first. The Gold
Bolt is up there.
On Planet Quarto, get to the area where you become Giant Clank.
Have that area on your right, and the arena on your left. In front
of you is where the Gold Bolt awaits. Stand facing the key area
wearing the thruster pack and carrying the Tesla Claw after completing
the level. It looks like a trespasser socket. Stand there, face
it and the door will open. There are also lots of boxes in the
After getting the Bolt behind the electric fence on the last level,
continue until you reach a section where there is a circle of
water. In front of you is a railed off section above. You cannot
jump up to it. To the left of that area is another section of
dogs and fire throwing robots. Get rid of them before you do anything
else. There is also a swingshot and some life in this area. Watch
for the big pit of lather in the middle. On the right hand side
of the ledge is a platform. Stand on or near it and look down
to the right. You will see a ledge. Fly down to it. When you are
there you will see a grind rail section. Get on it, and it takes
you to the Gold Bolt.
At Gadgetron Site, Kalebo 3 ,go to the grind area. Look for triggers
that are circular-shaped and partially green. Hit them and go
to the area that had a blue fenced forcefield. It should now be
open. Grind there to get a Gold Bolt. Note: You must hit all the
triggers to get it.
At Jowai Resort, you will need the propelled backpack for fast
underwater swimming and the O2 mask. Go down dock to first little
island. Jump into the water and swim underwater around the back
side of island. You will see a tunnel on the left. Go in and swim
to a little cove with stairs. Go upstairs and use thruster pack
to slam the big bolt. Cross the bridge and fight your way to the
On Planet Gaspar there is a Gold Bolt behind the place where you
land. You cannot get it from here because the ledge it is on is
too high to reach. However if you go to the end of the level to
the exact place where you get the pilot's helmet and look off
the ledgem you will see a opening to a cave in the lava. It may
look like an island at first, but it is not. Fly down and defeat
the enemies in there. Go up the elevator at the end and the Gold
Bolt will be there, along with some ammunition.
Use the following steps to get the Gemlik Oltanis Orbit Gold Bolt.
Go to the room where the green goo rises and you must jump across
platforms to get to the other side. On the platform that does
not go under the goo, look to your left. There is a little tunnel
with a Gold Bolt inside.
On the planet Novalis, go to the pond behind the ship. Kill all
the enemies and swim through all the tunnels until you reach the
area where there are three pools. Go towards the bolt sticking
up out of the ground that opens the door. Look to your left (when
facing the door). There should be a wall of rock. Use your Bomb
Glove and bomb it. The wall should explode, revealing a cave with
Gold Bolts and lots of ordinary bolts. Note: Enemies may lurk
Hint: Easy weapon level ups:
This trick requires the Shield Charger and whatever
weapon you want to level up. Go to Koros and go to the first big
robot you see with the Shield Charger on. Fire at it with the
selected weapon until it dies. Then, die and repeat the process
until it is leveled up. You can do this with any weapon.
Hint: Defeating groups of enemies:
When you have to kill a group of one health enemies,
use the Pyrocitor then just hold Circle and spin.
Hint: Defeating Alien Queen:
In the N34 level with the alien experiments, go to
the path of Blargs, Swarmers (killer toads) and Snappers (killer
bugs). When you get to the green room, the Alien Queen will appear.
Use the Glove Of Doom. When the Swarmers appear, get the Suck
Cannon. Use the Bomb Glove on the snappers. If you are out of
ammunition, use the Omni Wrench. When killed, go to the open door.
Whack the Swarmers and buy the Grind Boots.
Hint: Defeating Chainblade:
Use one hit of the Heavy Bouncer and it will kill him
if he is on the ground. This will also kill the B2 Brawler in
Hint: Defeating Chairman Drek:
Find the location where there are a lot of ships and
flying people with guns. Earlier, you drained a water pool. In
the big plateau where those enemies are located, is a tunnel leading
to the left. Follow it until you find a Hydro-Displacer filler.
Fill it up, then go through the tunnel and find a thing that makes
Clank huge. Destroy everything in sight and fight Chairman Drek.
When you hurt him enough, an intermission sequence will start.
You will be small again. When this happens, follow him to fight
him Use the Tesla Claw, Blaster, and Devestator. After you hurt
him enough, he will blow up the little islands you fight on. When
he does this, equip the Swingshot and swing to the next island.
After about two or three islands, you will be on the Planet Buster
Gun. Drek will push a button that detonates it. Go to the middle
and do the Rocket Slam thing to stop it. Note: There are rails
on the outside of the Planet Buster. Grind them and pull out your
Blaster for cheap beatings.
Make sure you have a R.Y.N.O. when you fight Drek. After getting
shrunk by Drek, Swingshot to the platform. Drek's attacks will
differ between Missiles, Shockwaves, Big Mines, Gadgebots, and
Flying Sticks. With these next three rounds, use your R.Y.N.O.
on Drek. With a few sets of R.Y.N.O. ammunition, you will go to
the next round. At the Plantbuster round, stay in the middle and
blast Drek, jumping over Shockwaves. Power Slam the button and
do not stop firing.
Use the following trick to defeat Drek without the R.Y.N.O. After
you hit Drek a few with giant Clank, follow Drek onto the island.
Hit him with the Devastator untill he goes to the second island.
Follow Drek to the next island and hit him some more with the
Devastator. You may want to throw some mines out in case he also
throws mines. After he goes to the last island, hit him with the
devastator Untill you have no more ammunition. However, make sure
you hit the abort button for the laser (drek will hit the laser
a couple times). Make sure your Telsa Claw is full. When he shoots
out robots and missiles, get out your Telsa Claw. Try to hit Drek
in the middle with the Telsa Claw. Doing this will make his life
go down more, and faster. When Drek shoots out robots and mines,
you can grind around the blue line around the arena to catch up
to him and get away from the robots. Do not waste time fighting
the things that Drek shoots out, because you will die easier.
When fighting Drek for the last time in the laser arena yse the
following steps. Note: You must have purchased the Gagetron Tesla
Claw. When Drek initiates the countdown, run to the center and
power slam the de-activation switch. Next, chase him as fast as
you can, firing either your Blaster or Devastator. If he fires
missiles, dodge them by running in small zigzags. If he spawns
little one hit enemies, jump over them (while firing). The fire
waves will take care of them later. If he drops mines, equip the
Tesla Claw and continue to fire. When you have removed approximately
one block of life, he will drop three or four fire rings. Jump
these while firing short bursts of Blaster fire. Continue this
strategy until he reactivates the timer. Then, just like before,
de-activate it. Repeat the previous steps until small green teeth-like
things start falling all around. Avoid these, as they will explode
upon contact. At this point, go all out with the Tesla Claw chasing
Drek wherever he goes. When his life is at zero, watch the intermission
sequence and power slam the final switch. Then, watch the ending
When you are fighting Drek, the main weapons to use are your Blaster
Gun, Devastators, Drone Glove, and maybe the Glove Of Doom. When
you start, just use your Blaster Gun to shoot him at a close distance.
Make sure to jump whenever he throws the Wave Bomb. It will not
take long for him to move on to the next platform. Next, you will
be close to out of Blaster Gun ammunition, so use the Devastators.
Remember to jump over the waves here as well. During the final
platform, you first need to deactivate the laser. When you do
this, Drek will charge at you. Use your Thrusters to shoot backwards.
Thrust all the way to the outer rim. You will notice that the
outer rim is actually a grind rail. When you get to this, he will
not attack. Take this opportunity to attack him with any Devastators
or Blaster ammunition. He will drift off and begin to fire mines
and small drones. At this point you are still on the grind rail.
Use your Drone Glove just in case one of the Drek Drones tries
to attack. Once he starts to fire the Wave Bomb, start moving
to the center of the platform. Once you are there, equipment boxes
will begin to appear. Gather new equipment while still defending
yourself and jumping over any Wave Bombs. If you get nervous or
are low on energy, make a run for the outside rim. It is difficult
for them to attack you here. Drek cannot even get his rockets
on you. Once you are fully equipped again, you can go in for another
attack. Once Drek's energy starts to fall past a certain point,
he will go for the detonator again. Watch for this. Once he has
about two or three bars remaining, he will start to fire Blasts
at you. Theses are difficult to dodge at times. Try using the
thrusters to get away from them. Once you weaken him further after
this, he will begin to shoot out little mine-like green weapons.
These are not very harmful if you use the Drone Glove.
Note: You will need about 14,000 Bolts in case you die. If you
do not have this amount of Bolts, step on the little warper across
from the Gadgetron Vender and go to different worlds to get them.
Also, put your Devastator in your Quick Select. The Giant Clank
part of the battle is easy. Just punch him frequently and use
the Charged Power Ball by pressing Triangle. When you return
as Ratchet, use the Swingshot to follow Drek. When you get there,
immediately take out your Devastator and repeatedly shoot Drek.
The only time that you should slow down on your shooting is when
he starts to shoot missiles at the ground. When he moves to the
next platform, you will most likely be low on Devastator ammunition.
Take out the PDA that you obtained from "Steve" and
buy more ammunition for the Devastator. Repeat this until you
get to the platform with the Deplanetizer. At this point, stop
the Deplanetizer from shooting, and when Drek tries to hurt you
by chasing after you, rocket away from him by running and pressing
the R1 + Square until you reach the outer rim, at
which point you will see a blue railing. Jump on it and you will
grind away from Drek and not get hurt. Then, repeat until Drek
sends out the giant Gadgebots. Take out your Pyrocitor and kill
them by spinning in a circle if they surround you. Continue to
use the same tactic to take out Drek. When he starts using his
laser (when he has two or three sections of health remaining),
run back and forth so that you will not get hit. Do not use the
Devastator when this happens, as more than likely you will get
hit. By using this tactic, you should be able to defeat Drek.
Hint: Defeating the Snaglebeast:
While the Snaglebeast is doing the "sonic wave",
get close enough so that your blaster shows the green circle.
Jump the orange things, and when he stops, fire your blaster until
he stars to hit the ground to cause that wave. Run out of its
range and repeat steps until he dies. If you run out of ammunition,
use same trick but with the Glove Of Doom.
Dodge the Snagglebeast's shockwaves and fire lasers. Shoot him
with the Blaster until a red shield appears around him. He cannot
be hurt while this shield is up. He will now follow you when you
run. Run across a bridge. The Snagglebeast will follow. When he
steps on the bridge, it will break and he will fall into the lava.
Note: You can continue to use the same bridge, even if it is already
broken. You only have to do this about three times and the Snagglebeast
will be defeated.
Hint: Completing the Qwaktastic Challenge:
Equip the V2 Quack-O-Ray and run around in circles
with Circle. Put the shielded charger on if needed. When
you get 50 and 100, pull out your most powerful weapon (V5 Decimator)
and kill the Bosses.
Hint: Magnet Ratchet:
When you knock an enemy of a cliff of some sort, their
bolts will return to you.
Hint: Magnetic Wrench:
Note: This also works with the Vacuum Gun. Perform
a Comet Strike at far away Bolts. If the wrench passes near them,
it will attract the Bolts to you. This is especially useful around
water or Bolts that are across chasms.
Hint: Gold Weapon store:
After completing the game, go to Planet Novalis. There
will be a warp pad next to the Gadgetron Vendor. Enter it to access
the Gold Weapon store.
Hint: Gold weapons:
When you have at least four gold and 20,000 normal
Bolts, go to Gemlik base. Go to the flight hanger where a large
tower is located. Enter it, and wall jump to a platform that takes
you to the top. You will find some gold weapons. The blaster is
a good first choice. You can return at any time in the game.
Go to the Gemlik Base. Fight your way to get the purple jet. Note:
You will have to defeat Captain Qwark to get it. Go to the "outlook"
and make sure the gap is filled. Wall jump to the elevator platform.
Hit the button. You will go to the top of the "outlook".
Once there, you will see gold weapons before you would normally
get them by defeating Supreme Executive Chairman Drek. The prices
Suck Cannon: 4 gold Bolts and 10,000 regular Bolts
Glove Of Doom: 4 gold Bolts and 10,000 regular Bolts
Blaster: 4 gold Bolts and 20,000 regular Bolts
Pyrocitor: 4 gold Bolts and 30,000 regular Bolts
Bomb Glove: 4 gold Bolts and 20,000 regular Bolts
After you defeat Drek the first time, you will get a message that
asks if you want to timewarp to just before you defeated Drek
or if you want to start a new game with all of your weapons, Bolts,
Gold Bolts and some of your gadgets. Choose to start a new game.
When you get to Novalis, at the very beginning of the level there
will be a warp pad. Step on it and it will warp you to the Gold
Weapons room. This is an easier way to get to the Gold Weapons.
Use the following trick to get Gold Weapons before defeating Drek.
Go to the planet where you fought Qwark. Then, go to the place
were you ended up at after you defeated him. You find a new ship.
You should see a tall tower on another platform. Go directly in
front of the entrance of the tower and jump from wall to wall
until you reach an elevator. Take the elevator up to the top,
where there is a Gold Weapons store. Note: Only a few Gold Weapons
are for sale, such as the Bomb Glove, Pyrociter, and the Blaster.
Hint: Gold weapon prices:
There are ten Gold weapons available for purchase in
the game. They are much more powerful than their regular counterparts.
All of these weapons also require four Gold Bolts to purchase.

Hint: Run, stop, jump:
While you are running forward with a backpack, hold

X. This is much fast than walking.
Hint: Hit mines without losing health:
When you are on the grind rails, you can hit the mines
with your ratchet and will not lose any health.
Hint: Avoid mutant fish:
On Pokitaru, when the resort owner is driving the boats
go to the very edge of the second boat. If done correctly, the
fish will stay in the water.
Hint: Walk through lasers:
On Hoven, when you go behind your ship to find an item,
you do not have to deactivate the lasers. You can just walk through
Hint: Hoverboard shortcut:
At Kalebo 3, in the hoverboard races, you will see
three rings near the finish line. Go through all three to unlock
a useful shortcut. You will recognize them because they beep like
the Tripads from Umbris. If you grind the rail, you can see the
track below you.
At the hoverboarding in Kelebo 3, when you reach the first big
ramp over the water, make sure you have a full boost meter. Hold
Square when you jump off of the ramp then jump onto the
platform at the right-hand side. Then, pass through all the rings
without falling off of the platform. At the end of the platform
there is a small ramp with a tunnel at the other side. Keep Square
held and jump off of the ramp and into the tunnel. It will take
you to the big ramp just after the stack of big metal blue boxes.
Note: If you fall off the platform in the tunnel or by the rings,
you will be teleported just after the ramp you jumped off on the
normal part of the track.
At Kerwan/Gadgetron site, on the first big jump over the water
in the hoverboard racing, have a full boost meter and hold Square.
Then, jump to the little platform at the right of the track and
pass through all three rings without falling off the platform.
At the end of the platform there is a small ramp and a tunnel
that has opened. Jump into the tunnel and it will take you to
the big ramp just after the big stack of metal blue boxes. Note:
If you fall off any of the small platforms you will be teleported
just after the big jump that you jumped off on the original part
of the track.
Hint: Quick Hoverboard race start:
Use the following trick to start faster at the Hoverboard
race at Blackwater City. Zoom in on the woman in the purple dress
and enter the Hoverboard race. Immediately perform a Scratcher
and start moving. You should be at the same pace as the other
riders. Note: When you do this, you probably will be slower with
the other racers.
alex the video game master.
Hint: Hidden items:
Once in the ice level, find your way to the large fortress.
Stand directly in front of the fortress door and turn to the right.
Walk straight ahead and search the large bushes. You should find
a large cave, in which you can find all kinds of things.
Hint: Restore health:
Get in the ship and fly to another planet to get full
Hint: Box breaking:
When you find a big stack or group of boxes, pull out
the Taunter and press Circle. Many, if not all, of the
boxes will break. This is much faster than breaking one or two
boxes with one swing of the OmniWrench.
Hint: Hold six Shield Chargers:
To hold six Shield Chargers, use one and while it is
still on, buy another.
Hint: Easy battles in Blackwater City:
When at a place with the blob monsters and a door with
the enemies that shoot green gas behind it, open the door. The
blobs and other enemies will fight each other. You only have to
fight the one that survived.
Hint: Large chested woman in Blackwater
Go to the Blackwater City racing girl and flip to the
left and right repeatedly. Her chest will expand up to three times.
Hint: Easy path on Planet Veldin:
When on Planet Veldin (where you face Dreg), at the
beginning when you arrive use your Devestator and Visibomb Guns
in first person mode. Aim one of your guns at the flying people
in the air, the tanks, or the flying machines to make a clear
path to go through.
the a maN.
Hint: Easy battle arena:
When you are big Clank, you can go into a battle arena.
If you jump off the side before the battle arena, you can fight
in it without losing life.
Hint: Matrix-style effect:
When you are playing at Captain Qwark's fitness course,
go to the second island. Go to the end of the first wall where
the platforms start. Jump forward and you will hover in mid-air.
Press Left or Right and you will glide in that direction.
Hint: Look like an invader from another
This trick requires the O2 Mask, Thruster Pack, Devastater/R.Y.N.O./Suck
Cannon, and Magnetic Boots. Put them all together and you look
like your invading the planet. Note: Only use one weapon (the
Devestator looks the best). Use hover mode (R1, R1)
Hint: "Help! I'm stuck in this box!"
When you are at any Gadgetron vendor, wait a very long
time. The green words at the top will read "Help! I'm stuck
in this box!".
Hint: Easy Bolts (demo version):
When you are in Metropolis, immediately before you
jump onto the train, turn around and go behind the suitcases.
There will be a lot of boxes (2,000 Bolts). When you are done
collecting the Bolts, go back to the train and jump off. You will
die, but will return to the beginning of the train. This can be
repeated as many times as desired.
Glitch: Explore Hoverboard race track:
In Blackwater City, approach the person that submits
you into the Hoverboard race while using the Hologuise. Press
Triangle to enter the race with the Hologuise on. You will
be able to explore the racetrack on foot, without other competitors
instead of racing through the track on a Hoverboard.
Note: While doing this, you can go to the jump with the platform
in the air with a lot of boxes. Take out your Taunter and press
Circle to break the boxes on top of that platform and bring
the Bolts down to you. If you press Circle, you can get
an unlimited number of bolts.
Glitch: Go under Blackwater City's water:
Take the taxi when the Hologuise is on. Then, walk
of the side towards the lady for the races. You will fall off
the side and under the water. Note: You must be wearing the Hologuise
when you walk off the side.
Glitch: Drifting Glove Bomb in German Dreks
Go to the mini spaceship. Note: You may first have
to complete the lock. When done, go inside and throw a Glove Bomb
into it (Ratchet toy). When you take off, you will see the Glove
Bomb drifting away in space.
Glitch: Leave level boundary at Kogor Refiniery
At Kogor Refinery Orxon, after lowering the platform
at the beginning that takes you up to the ledge where you can
go to the mine field (the place where you saw the turret destroy
the two robots as Clank), and the laboratories, go into the lab.
Follow the path until you reach the part with the small platform
that rises and falls with a hissing noise. Look to you right to
see a large stack of boxes. Destroy all but one. Then, do a wall
jump on the black wall. You should wall jump to a purple pipe
that you can do another wall jump on. If done correctly, you should
jump through the black wall onto a small gray platform outside
of the level. You can walk through various places in the wall
behind you, and end up in some strange places, including halfway
through the floor.
Glitch: Go under Pokitaru City's water:
This trick requires the O2 Mask. Fly to Pokitaru City,
then go underwater and swim near where the sand is all white (close
to where you start). Try to swim down into it, even though you
cannot, then swim back up. You should fall underwater and go through
the white sand. You will stay there for about thirty seconds before
Glitch: Swim through lab:
The O2 Mask is required for this trick. It may also
take awhile without the Hydro Pack Clank. Go to the planet with
the resort. Swim around the entire island on the outer edges.
When you see a part of the island with a waterfall, look to the
left and dive. You will see hills in the water. Swim down close
to it and dive into it. You cannot get directly up to it, but
use the place where you can get the closest. You should go through
the ground. Stay at the level you are at and do not go above water.
Also, do not try to swim further than where you supposed to go
because you will eventually start an endless fall. Keep swimming
below the ground until you see your ship above the water. Keep
going and you will see big pumps in the water that are located
near your ship. Keep swimming towards them and you will see the
lab you go into during that level. You should see one of the blob
monsters walking back and forth. Swim down towards it and you
will start seeing patterns from the wall inside the lab. Keep
swimming towards it and you eventually fall through the roof and
drop into the lab. Note: If lab is full of water it will eventually
Glitch: Unlimited health for giant Clank:
Defeat the helicopters and mechs for the scientist.
Then, transform into giant Clank and jump off the edge.
Glitch: Floating Blarg:
If you have a Golden Morph-O-Ray and are on the ice
planet, find a helicopter with a Blarg in it. Use the Morph-O-Ray.
Instead of turning into a chicken and falling, it will freeze
in mid-air and stay there.
Glitch: Floating Sandsharks:
Go to the right of your ship and make it all the way
to the first elevator that takes you to the part where you use
your Swingshot. Get on the elevator and wait for some Sandsharks
to hop aboard and try to bite you. Note: you may want to jump
to resist attacks. Once the sharks are on the elevator, jump into
the air, which will trigger the elevator to go up. The Sandsharks
will come to the top with you, but will go underground when you
walk off. After walking off, stay close to the elevator and you
will see Sandsharks floating in the air. If you shoot them with
the blaster, the bolts will appear from the ground.
Glitch: Float in mid-air:
The Map-O-Matic is required for this trick. Go to Metropolis
and find the secret area. Stretch jump at the edge and hover over
there. If done correctly you will float in mid-air.
Glitch: Swing without Swingshot:
If you are on a yellow Swingshot Holder, press Start,
go to "Weapons", select any weapon, then press Triangle
once to return to the main start menu. Before you get off the
start menu, hold Circle. Keep Circle held and press
Triangle. You will now be swinging without a Swingshot.
After you jump off the yellow Swingshot holder, your weapon will
appear. This can be useful if you must go onto a Swingshot Holder
only to find monsters at the other side.
Glitch: Nothing in turret:
On Planet Batalia, go to the turret and defeat the
ships. Then, go around to the back of the turret to find some
steps. Go up the steps and jump in the turret. Center the camera
and look around. There is nothing inside for you to fire from.
Glitch: Inverted controls:
Enable the "Levels are mirrored" cheat. Use
the Spiderbot Glove and the horizontal controls for it will be
Glitch: Robot statue:
On the Metroilis Infobot, the statue on top of Al's
Roboshack is silver. However, when you actually see it the statue
Glitch: Blue robot lights:
At the start of the game in the robot factory, all
the robots lights except Clank's are blue. Also, in the Infobot
for the Hologuise the scientist gives you, the robots lights are
blue, even though they are normaly green, but they are still active.
Glitch: Submersible weapon:
Fly to Kelibo 111 and shoot your Visbomb into the water.
This will enable you to fly around under the water, using the
