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
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.
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

Okay, these weapons you should buy ASAP:
Glove of Doom
All the rest:
Wait until you get the raritanium on hoven, then trade it for the the thing that gives you a discount at vendors. Then buy the following weapons ASAP - Visibob Gun, Tesla Claw, Drone Device (optional), Walloper (Optional).
Get the O2 mask from Pokitaru, then go to the Blarg Station (nebula g34). Go to the place where you get the hydrodisplasor, then you will be exploring as Ratchet!

The easiest way to win against the bosses like Drek and the snaggle tooth are to have the weapon R.Y.N.O ("Rip Ya A New One"). One Blast of This Baby can take out one full level of an enemy life.

This tip requires the thruster pack and gadgetron pda. Equip the PDA, then boost jump (or stretch jump) then press circle. Ratchet and Clank will disappear, but the fire and smoke from the thruster pack are still there.

To do this you have to go to the Giantclank planet and go to the giantclank platform and turn into giantclank, then fall off. After your invincible, defeat the robots and die. Last defeat them over and over again.

On the resort level go into the water and over to where you end up on the first trip on the fairy. jump of to the left and go to the wall. Dive and you will see a cave go into it. You will need a heli pack upgrade to continue!
Submitted by: Austin on December 21, 2008
when you first get to the planet youll see that ROBOT, when you do destroy it after you do that you go inside (NOTE: You Will Need The Hologuise)After you go in get to the very end and use your heli-pack.
you can go right or left but DONT fall off and you will grind the side of it.
It Might Sound Stupid But Its Fun!
Submitted by: Trent Martin on May 20, 2006
It will be better to use the heli-pack more than the jet-pack since the heli-pack does a higher [R1 + X] jump. Only equip the thruster pack for invinso-locks.
The women had you speak to get into the races in blackwater city has weird ability to make her boobs grow. To make the grow do Side flips and Backfilps in front of her.
go to the portal n stand on the ledge then get out the tauter n press circle the frog in there will step on the platform n open the portal for u if u go inside there will be a gold bolt

On the planet Quartu, go to the place where the scientist can supersize Clank. Do so, and head to the Combat Mech arena. When all the Mechs have been defeated, kill yourself and repeat.
Complete only the first half of Blackwater City (ie don't do the hoverboard race.)
Return after you have acquired the O2 mask from Pokitaru.
Equip the O2 mask from your gadgets menu,
and you cannot be harmed by the exterminators or tanks spraying the green fog.!
(Note Green Slugs and giant fish can still bite you!)
to make Ratchet glide along the ground, tap R1 twice. (simple,no?) if you want Ratchet to stop, press the x button
(you need a thruster pack for this.)
On planet Orxon with Ratchet, as you go to the cliff with the gadgetron vender go to the left and up in that building. Go through all the obsticles and you can find a dispenser that gives you a maximum of 5 total hit points for 4,000 bolts. After you get that one you can get one that gives you eight total hit points for 30,000 thousand bolts.
I found this cheat during the swim an planet rilgar, blackwater city. While swimming, you have the oxygen meter which is going down and down. So what you do is you play an in level movie, then it thinks that your on land, so you then sink to the bottom, then it refills your oxygen meter, while your underwater. No 02 mask required!

The best way to defeat the small quick enemies is either your wrench or the Pyrociter. Just equip the Pyrociter and start spinning and they will die soon. Glove of doom is also a good alternate way to beat them also...
Go to a planet with a hover board race on it,you will notice that every time you get a new high score or new best time you get bolts,at first go your worst on the track and do 1 flip/trick,and keep getting better and better, you get about 100 bolt each high score on new best time, every time you reset the console it deletes the new times even if you save it! this is how i got enough money to buy the rhino!

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.
The O2 Mask will allow Ratchet to breath underwater, survive the rigors of space and even keep him alive in poisonous atmospheres.
This Mask auto-equips whenever it senses that you need extra oxygen or, if you prefer, you can equip and wear it anytime via the Gadget configuration screen.

At the end of the game, the two best weapons to have at your disposal for dispatching the Dastardly Chairman Drek, are the Blaster and the Devastator.
Keep another weapon that many be low on ammo such as the Pyrocitor, and among the three should be enough to make Victory yours
Jumping the floating platforms is another matter entirely
But thats another cheat entirely, the Super Duper Moonnie Jump
That code is of the CB form.
The Kamikaze Bots on planet Gasper, [the ones that run toward you and explode] are such a nuisance. The best weapon to use against them is the Walloper.
it takes em out in one hit, and stops them from exploding in front of you.
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
There are some Blarg Bounty Hunters on Batalia that hide underground. The best thing to do with these elusive enemies is use the Mine Glove to throw a mine next to their hiding places.
When they pop out to attack, the mine will get em every time.
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.
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!

I found a very weird glitch on Metropolis. On the train riding part of the planet about one third through you will see a swingshot below the train. You can grab onto this but it will take a lot of timing. If you manage to do it your swingshot will disapear into your inventory and you will fall to your death.

These Bolts sticking out of the ground are called Bolt Cranks, and they are used to open doorways.
Thankfully, Ratchet's OmniWrench8000 is compatible with the Bolt Crank and you only need to press the [Square] button to attach the Wrench to the Bolt and then move the left analog stick in a counter-clockwise position until the doors open.
The Bolt Grabber is one of Gadgetron's most popular gadgets. Once worn, it permanently attracks any bolts that are in the general area of Ratchet, without the need to fetch them.
if you want loads of bolts go to blackwater city enter the hoverboard race as a robot with the hologuise ON and then you should b able to walk the race then you can go to the bit where there is a shelf with crates on it get the taunter out the stand under the shelf then hold the O button and bolts will rain on you

If your still trying to get a lot of bolts for the R.Y.N.O. Go to the planet you get it Rilgar. Go to the race track w/ the holiguise. if you remember in the race there was a shelf of tons of boxes go there.
For some reason in the race if u get like five boxes and turn around and go back to tne boxes they reapear. But if u go to the big shelf of boxes,with the taunter stand right under and since ur not looking at the shelf they keep coming!. if u have autofire great!. but if not gust get something heavy to hold the O button down.

If an enemy is charging straight towards you, try using the Bomb Glove [or preferably the Mine Glove] to take them out.
They tend to get caught in the blast and thrown back, which gives you enough time to hit them again before they recover.
Two free hits, usually is enough to kill most enemies.
Gadgetron CodeBots are necessary for opening Invinco-Vaults. These rare "keys" can only be used once, as there is always one CodeBot for each vault. The CodeBpt will automatically unlock the Invinco-Vault when you come upon it.
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. Games have known to have been broken by being just left in the PS2 running for 4 hours straight. the result is that a burned ring appears on the disc making it unplayable. Those who want to risk it, may do so, but keep this in mind.

Ratchet will find a variety of different Crates thoughout his adventures and these wooden ones are the most common.
Filled with Bolts [the currency of the universe, of course], busting them open with the OmniWrench 8000 will reveal their bounty.
When sniping, doing so, often places you in a vulnerable position, prone to attack.
To allow for this weakness in your defenses, throw out some Defense Drones.
They will soak up the damage while you lay out the fire power on all the baddies you encounter.
Snipe difficult enemies when possible.
If an enemy is too tough for you, take it out at a distance, with the Devastator or, if you have it, the Visibomb gun.
This is an especially viable strategy to use on the Blarg Elite troops on the planets Veldin and Kalebo III.
Before you enter the hoverboard race on blackwater planet equip the hologuise you will start the race on you feet walk around until til you see a platform with a'lot of boxes ontop of it right next to there is a ramp position yourself ontop of the ramp facing the boxes you will not be able to see the boxes then equip the taunter and hold on. The taunter will break the boxes and the bolts will come to you. This will take a long time if you're trying to get the ryno. I held the button down with a piece of electrical tape for about 3 hours and came back to over 250,000 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.
Return to Blackwater City after you have obtained the Morph-O-Ray from Oltanis.
Equip the O2 mask from your gadgets menus.
Go DownTown, Walk right up to the tank and morph it into a chicken. "Cluck Cluck!"
Ratchet will come across his share of Gadgetron Crates on each planet he visits.
These Crates, marked by the letter "G" on their sides, have the latest in Gadgetron ammunition stored inside.
What's inside is fairly random, although Ratchet will usually get ammunition for whatever weapon he is currently equiped with.
The Gadgetron Vendor is a virtual one-stop shopping center that is set up on every planet throughout the solar system.
Here Ratchet & Clank can shop for the latest Gadgetron high-tech weapons and ammunition using the Bolts they find along the way to purchase the goods.
To activate a Gadgetron Vendor, just walk yp to it and press the [Triangle] button. An on-screen menu will appear, offering up the current selection of weapons and ammo available.
To buy a weapon, gadget or ammo, highlight the corresponding icon on the bottom screen and press the [X] button to confirm the purchase.
The cost of the item is displayed in the left-hand screen while the amount of bolts you have is displayed in the top right corner.
When buying ammo, press the [X] button to choose the item, then use the left analog stick or digital pad to choose the amount.
When you are finished shopping, press the [Triangle] button to exit the Vendor.
After you defeat Drek, go to planet Novalis and you will see a transporter right when you get off the ship. Press triangle on the transporter and it will tansport you to a room with gold weapons. Each gold weapon is 4 gold bolts and a certain number of regular bolts. Each gold weapon is basicly an upgrade of the regular one.
Use the boomerang attack with the wrench and if it gets near any loose bolts it will bring them back to you. It's a neat and easily ignored trick in the game.

The first gold bolt is past the secret passage that starts to flood with water. You will not be able to get past untill you get the O2 Mask. The second gold bolt is in the laser maze in the corner. It seems impossible to get it because the switch to open the lasers is broken. So,you need to go to the man hole at the end of the maze. Jump on it and wait till it goes up. Jump on top of the maze and work your way into the square with the bolt.
In addition to displaying video, Infobots give coorinates to new planets that Ratchet & Clank have yet to visit.
You can pull up the Map screen by pressing the Select button and then pressing the [R1] and [L1] buttons to cycle through the available planets.
The vault which you have to use the codebot on (you get the codebot on Drek's Fleet) is right next to the Giant Clank mini game arena on Planet Quartu. There is tens of thousands of bolts and a gold bolt behind the door.

The Taunter activates dormant mines from the Mine Glove, giving them a longer range. It also makes enemies run towards you. Toss out some mines, use the Taunter, and watch as the mines rush toward the baddies, which are running toward you.
When they meet, it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside, having dispatched your foe.
After completing Gemlik Base leave and go back. First break the boxes to your right, then walk back to the transporter and go to the fighter hanger. Turn right and break the boxes there. Now go in the closest door and down all the steps to the elevator. Go down at the bottom the door will not open use your wrench and keep hitting the door you will keep getting bolts.
If you swing your OmniWrench at various plants they will fall apart and give you bolts. The same applys for some machines.
There is no way, unfortunalely, to get the RYNO any other way than saving up. But the best levels for bolts are:

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.
When you are on plaanet Pokitaru, go where is the gold bolt. Go to the edge of waterfall. make double-jump and then pres L1 button. If done correctly, your screem will be blue,like the water

enemies that are getting to close to you. Try not to use often though because
