2 Beat the Patrol Bots on Oltanis

If your having trouble with the Patrol Bots of Oltanis, best thing to do is to throw out, Agents of Doom, and then press the R1 button to duck.
Their electricity will go over your head and the Agents will do the dirty work for you while you sit in safety eating Oreo's.
Be sure you're not standing on a raised portion of the ground, or the electricity will hit you even if you duck.
Ever had toasted Oreo's? Yummy

3 top tips

GOING FOR THE GOLD:
You want to know the reason for collecting gold bolts? Go to Otlantis orbit and after the battle with qwark go to the tower on the left. Wall jump up and go on the elevator. This is the gold weapons room. 4 gold bolts and normal bolts will purchase upgrades for weapons. The gold weapons room warp pad will also appear on planet novalis after beating the game.

CHEATER WALKING ON THE COURSE:
After getting the hologuise off Kalebo III go to Blackwater city and equipt the hologuise and then enter the hoverboard race with the hologuise on. instead of being on a hoverboard you'll run instead of on a hoverboard.

BOLTS GALORE:
Do the hologuise trick and then equipt the taunter. Stand under lots of crates. Then put an object on the O button. Leave the game on overnight and then in the morning you will have lots of bolts. Guarranted 89% of the time to get a R.Y.N.O.

NOTE: leaving the playstation on all night(just one or two nights are ok) will stuff up the laser on your playstation 2 therefor no games work

The Annoying "Forcefield" Gold Bolts.

Hello! This is how you can get the 2 "Forcefield" gold bolts, 1 on Rilgar and the other on Oltanis Orbit.
In Rilgar on the way to the Hoverboard Races,after the big green room with alot of green slug monsters, there is an area with red forcefields.Right next to the square you start on there is a gold bolt next to you,but the switch is broken.To get there you must get to the end of the maze,then stand on the rising platform.If you look towards the Gold Bolt you will see that you can jump on top of the walls.Do that and walk from one wall to the other.You must be VERY CAREFUL not to fall off.
The Oltanis Orbit one is in the room where the green acid is rising up and down and there is 1 platform that the acid dosn't reach.If you look to your left while standing on that platform you will see a gold bolt behind a forcefield.To reach this Gold Bolt you must destroy every generator in the station.

2 beat mines on qwaurks obstacle course

In Qwaurks obstacle course there are mines which if you get close to you chase after you then self destruct. They are a nuisance, So, there are two ways to beat them.
1. you can blast them with the blaster and the decastator( not recommended as devastor ammo is expensive).
2. you can put down a mine and then use your taunter to call them towards you and cha-ching they are blown up.
If number 2 fails it means that you have not put down enough mines or have not put them in thwe right place. If you do find your self being chased by a mine then put down a mine in front of you and run past it and itwill be destroyed

2 Gold Weapons Locations

You have the option of getting your Gold Weapons in 2 places. One involves beating the game, and the other does not but has a much smaller Selection.

Beat Game:
This way involves beating the game. When this is done, get to Novalis and when you get off your ship, there will be a white transporter. Go to where it takes you, which is basically right above you, and there will be a large selection of Gold Weapons to choose from.

Non-Beat Game: This was involves getting to Olantis Orbit and beating the entire level, and unlocking the transporter at the beginning. When this is done, take the transporter and it will take you to where you received your newest ship. Look around and you will see a large tower over a bridge. Go up to it and wall-jump up to the elevator. Then take that to the room with a small selection.

On Orxon (the green gas planet) go keep going until you get into the lab part. Look for a platform with 4 boxes stacked in the corner and a frog. Jump on the boxes and jump over the wall next to you, you will be out of the level!

On planet Kerwan (the train level) keep going until you get to the first escalator, get to the upper side and jump on one of the platforms on either side. Now you should be able to walk into a little gap. (both sides), now wall jump off of the inner wall and hyperstrike, you will be on a higher platform, now keepwall jumping back and fourth and you will get on top of the building!

Concerning the "leave PS2 on all night 4 bolts" cheat

If you activate the Hologuise before entering the Rilgar racetrack, You can walk around on the track. Go to the big jump before the last one where there is a big pile of bolts on the platform. Although you can't reach them, you can use your taunter to birng the bolts down. You will find there is infinite bolts. However, many people say, "stick tape onto the controller and leave all night" but there is a problem with this.

Walking on walls

This glitch may be obvious to some but here it is:
When using the magneboots on a metal track, you can move off the track at some places, and walk on the walls. If you ever stop walking, you will fall of the wall.

I have tried this glitch at many places but the only one i remember now that it works on is the one on planet Orxon when you go as ratchet. At the end of it while walking down, you should be able to walk to the right and get off track and onto the wall.

because it only costs you 240 bolts to fill the puppy up.

BLASTER
Cost:2,500 bolts
Ammo:200 bullets

It is also very cheap to refill!

Tips: This weapon works just like the bomb glove only little explodable
critters come out of the bomb and explode any enemy that come in contact. Only
there is one difference. You can alway use this weapon for any range because
the little critters will follow you if they haven't killed a guy, or they will
just seek out any enemy at any distance. These guys can't get over ledges or
cross any type of gap though so be aware of that.

SUCK CANNON
Cost:free, you find it in the level where you get the doom glove.
Ammo:5 small enemies
Ammo cost:free
Range:close to medium
Tips: This weapon sucks up a nearby enemy and gives you ammo to kill other
enemies. Suck in as any as you can and shoot them out at larger enemies. This

enemies that you fight, and there are plenty of those!

TAUNTER
Cost:2,500 bolts

do that but owell. This weapon is pretty cool to lure enemies into some

enemy can hear it and follow it. This weapon is great for attracting enemies
over cliffs and such.

MINE GLOVE
Cost:7,500 bolts
Ammo:50 mines

This is just the trap combo you need when big enemies are lurking around the
corner or if you want to save ammo.

DEVESTATOR
Cost:10,000 bolts
Ammo:20 missiles
Ammo cost:50 bolts per missile
Range: medium to long
Tips: This is one of the most effective weapons of Ratchet and Clank. This
launcher can destroy anything its fired at. Use this at medium to long range
with manual target to take out enemies much easier. It is hard to realize that
the ammo on this puppy goes quick because you are having so much fun with it.
Make sure to consereve with this one because ammo does cost alot of bolts.
Also, this weapon is great for taking down flying enemies.

WALLOPER
Cost:7,500 bolts
Ammo:none
Ammo cost:free
Range:close
Tips: This weapon is great for when you are conserving ammo on other weapons.
This boxing type weapon can take out any enemy with one hit. It is electric
powered and very powerful. Use this at close range because its a boxing mit
and boxing mits aren't for long range. This weapon is also verty effective
when taking out a group of enemies, and there is no cost for ammo!

VISIBOMB GUN
Cost:15,000 bolts
Ammo:20 missiles
Ammo cost:100 bolts per bomb

control the missiles! Use this on enemies waiting for you in a distance, or on
enemies that are getting to close to you. Try not to use often though because
its 100 bolts per missile!

this alot, although the decoy is very funny looking.

DRONE DEVICE

R.Y.N.O
