PLANET ENDAKO
Sheep Invaders mini-game:
Go to Clank's apartment. On the coffee table is a pyramid. Use the Dynamo on it and you will play Sheep Invaders. Once you get tired of playing, you can smash it and get lots of Bolts.
Platinum Bolt: When you are at the second crane, get the block in the in the first room and bring it to the middle room by the elevated doorway. Next, get the exploding block and sit it on the block. The door will open. Go to the middle room and hop up on it to get the Platinum Bolt.

MAKTAR RESORT

Platinum Bolts:
Take the path where the slot machines are located. When you see a crane at the right, hop up to get a Platinum Bolt.

PLANET OOZLA

Platinum Bolts:
When you get the tractor beam, to the left is A Platinum Bolt. You have to use the tractor beam to move the columns to the left to get it.

PLANET TODANO

Anti-squirrel bus:
At the beginning of the level when the tourists are getting off the bus, jump up on top of the bus. Place a mini-turret before the bus leaves. As the bus goes to the finish of the tour, the turret will shoot at squirrels.
Robots: When the robots come out of the bus keep hitting them. After you kill about twenty, you will get a warning. If you keep hitting them, after about six to seven minutes, robots will come out and kill you.

PLANET GREBLIN
Y.E.T.I.:
When you get to planet Greblin, be careful of the pack hunting beasts called Y.E.T.I. They hunt in packs of over five. No weapon except the RYNO 2 can take them down quickly. They are killers and should be avoided when your health is low.

DEFEATING HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

B2 Brawler:
When you get the Zodiac, go to Maktar Nebula and face the B2 Brawler. When he shoots the laser balls, allow him to hit you with them. He will then come down to where you can shoot him. Take out the Zodiac and try to get up close us possible to his head. Launch a shot from the Zodiac. Watch out for his legs. In seconds he will be nothing but ash with one shot.
Oozla swamp monster: When you are on planet Oozla, you will encounter the thorny swamp monster. Its two attacks are its arm swing and the pancaker. Use your Lancer and Gravity Bomb. It is difficult, but you' wil eventually pass and receive the Dynamo at the end.
Oozla swamp monster: When you get the Gravity Boots, use them to walk the weird ramp in the store. Make sure you have been to the upgrade vendors and advanced a lot of them. Go down the chute and prepare for a very difficult fight. The last Boss you defeated was this Boss' little cousin. Shoot frequently and avoid him when swinging and eating. It is a circle and you will not run out of room. Do not stop shooting when it is still and you will receive the Boxbreaker (a Wrench upgrade).
The Final Boss: Take out your R.Y.N.O. 2 in the final battle. You can kill the Boss in about ten shots.

GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

Start with more weapons:
Insert a memory card with a save file from the original Ratchet And Clank with the game completed.
Completing the Impossible Challenge in the Megacorp Games: The Impossible Challenge consists of 60 rounds. Every five rounds it switches between normal and cagematch modes, and the very last round is against the Megapede. In order to win, do not attempt it until you are very strong and have learned how to strafe expertly. Try doing it when you have reached the end of the game and have all or most of the weapons (and have upgraded them).. Also have your experience meter at least three quarters full so that you can level up near the end of the match. The instant nanotech fillup will help tremendously. Reserve your ammunition, especially the Megarocket Tube (Minirocket Tube upgrade) as you will need it against Megapede. Use the Shield Charger when you are low on life and the Megaturret Glove (Miniturret Glove upgrade), Heavy Lancer (Lancer upgrade), and MiniNuke (Gravity Bomb upgrade) for dealing with enemies when the wrench just will not do. Your prize for winning is 200,000 Bolts and a skill point.
Gadgetron Shop: Have a saved game from the original Ratchet And Clank on your memory card. Do not save money for the Rhino2. If you obtained it the first game, then it will be offered for free. Wait for the Zodiac later in the game for 1,500,000.
Easy weapon upgrades: Go to Maktar Nebula and go to the Battle Arena. Play the Impossible challenge. Next, buy all the bullets for all your guns. Then, keep killing the people with the non-upgraded guns. Even if you die, you will get them upgraded. If you die, buy more bullets.
