BOSS FAQ V1.21
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
Ask yourself: Are you man enough, hero enough, INSANE enough to step into
the ring with two of the fiercest warriors in the galaxy?
If you answered yes, you're a big fat liar!

1-> E-mail policy

It's simple, if you have an alternate/easier way to beat a boss or if I forgot
a boss fight, let me know, but put "Ratchet & Clank 2 Bosses" in the subject
line. Don't send me an e-mail to tell me that this FAQ is ****, ****** or
simply ***** ********... :)
IMPORTANT NOTE : STOOOOOOOOOP E-MAILING ME TO TELL ME THAT YOU KILLED THE
                 MUTANT PROTOPET WITH THE RYNO2!!! IT'S OBVIOUS!
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
2-> Planet Oozla - Megacorp Outlet
    Swamp Monster
    Very Easy
    Before you get the Dynamo

This monster will try to crush you under one of his tails. This is his only
attack. Just shoot the crap out of him and you'll be finished with it in no
time. If you want a little challenge, try to kill it with only your wrench...
If you manage to hit it, it could be fun...
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
3-> Maktar Nebula - Maktar Resort
    Chainblade
    Fair
    Gladiator Fighting Arena

When Chainblade swings his swords, jump in any direction,but don't jump in 
Chainblade's direction...:p Then, take your Blitz Gun/Cannon or (Heavy) Lancer,
and shoot him until he starts swinging his swords again.

When he starts hovering above the ground and throwing his "chainblades" at
you, jump sideways and you should be fine. Shoot him when he gets back on the
ground.

NOTE : If you want to get a skill point, kill him with your wrench only. The
best way to do this is to wait until you have the Omniwrench 12,000 from
the Thugs-4-Less Prison in Aranos, but it's pretty simple even with the regular
Omniwrench 8,000. Just jump when he swings his chainblades and hyper-strike him
Don't use any other weapon than the wrench and you'll get the skill point.
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
4-> Maktar Nebula - Maktar Resort
    B2 Brawler
    Hard
    Gladiator Fighting Arena

When the B2 Brawler arrives, it'll stand almost still and shoot purple things
at you. Jump sideways and do backflips while shooting it with your
Blitz Gun/Cannon until it lies down. Its enormous legs will be spinning around
the arena. Jump (not sideways!) when a leg comes near you, and continue
shooting. It's hard work but it can be done.

NOTE : You'll get a skill point if you manage to destroy the B2 Brawler without
taking any damage. Be extremely careful not to get hit by the spinning legs!
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
5-> Planet Endako - Megapolis
    Thugs-4-Less Leader - Chopper
    Fairly Easy
    Near Clank's Apartment

The chopper has three basics attacks. Your success on this one depends on your
ability to strafe precisely. One of the numbskull's attacks is to shoot at you
with a machine gun. just jump sideways above the bullets to avoid them.
Another attack he has is to send electric "pillars" at you. When he does that,
run around, avoiding the beams. His final attack is, guess what, rockets.
(What an original boss fight... :) Again, jump sideways to avoid them. Shoot
him with the Blitz Gun/Cannon, Gravity Bomb/Mini-Nuke, (Heavy) Lancer, or
anything else you have. When he hurls rockets at you, try and make them crash
into the blocks around the arena to help you aim at the chopper. Also, be
careful when you jump sideways, you can fall easily...
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
6-> Planet Siberius - Frozen Base
    The Unknown
    Medium
    On top of the train and on the arena at the end of the level

When you get on top of the train, kill the enemies and the Unknown will appear.
He mainly charges up his gun before shooting you, so avoid the laser while
shooting him with any weapon. I suggest the Seeker Gun/HK22 Gun or the
Chopper/Multi-Star. He'll soon get away. Continue running on the cars using
your swingshot, killing enemies until the Unknown comes back. Now he'll send
some laser balls which will cast a fire ring on the floor. Jump in the middle
of the ring to avoid the fire and continue to shoot him. He'll soon vanish
againand the train will stop. Get up the ladder, get some ammunition at the
Megacorp Vendor and get inside the arena.

After the cinematic, the Unknown will use the same two attacks as before, but
will also create MSR V2's to help him, as well as automated turrets. The
turrets can be destroyed by a single wrench hit, and the MSRs are easily
taken care of. Don't mind the MSRs if you can, and the turrets as well
if you're a strafing professional, and take the Unknown out. If you can make
it past the robots and turrets, you'll deal with him easily. If not,
you'll have to destroy them before attacking him, which is very time-consuming,
and you'll be a sitting duck for the Unknown.The Mini-Nuke is very useful to
take the MSRs out.
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
7-> Planet Joba - Megacorp Games
    Megapede
    Hard
    Gladiator Fighting Arena

Megapede will send little bombs at you. Just keep running to avoid them. I
suggest using the Plasma Coil/Storm and Mini/Megaturret Glove, as well as the
Minirocket Tube/Megarocket Cannon. As you hit Megapede, he will lose one of
his "sections". This "section" will shoot at you until you have destroyed
it. Once you've destroyed a loose snake bit, go on with shooting Megapede
until he loses more parts. Destroy them, shoot at Megapede, rinse and repeat as
necessary.
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
8-> Dobbo Orbit - Spherical World
    Thugs-4-Less Leader - Robot
    Fairly hard
    Spherical World

You have to fight this jerk with Giant Clank. If you've played the first
Ratchet & Clank game, you should be able to do it without too much trouble.
Just notice that in Going Commando, you no longer have an unlimited supply of
rockets. To get some more, you have to break the buildings all around the
spherical world. Try to follow the robot by jumping and shooting rockets
at it. When you're close enough, punch it a few times and throw a bomb. Repeat
this process until it's over. Just be careful not to get hit by the choppers.
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
9-> Snivelak - Thug HQ
     Thugs-4-Less Leader - Freakin' Big Robot
     Freakin' HARD!!!!!
     End of level

Quickly run to a triangular pad and jump. You'll be taken to a platform with
a turret. The HUGE robot has HUGE defense and armor, so your ordinary
weapons aren't worth much here. Get on that turret and start shooting! When
the thug arrives near or is about to shoot a red laser at you, get out of the
turret and use the charge boots (R1+R1) to get to another pad.
Do this until a) the robot explodes, or b) all turrets are destroyed. If a)
has happened, shout a big Hurray! and get to planet Smolg. If b) has happened,
shout a big **CK! and take your strongest weapons. Get to a high vantage point
and shoot the robot until a) happens. Now you can shout a big Hurray!... :p
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
10-> Oozla - Megacorp Outlet
     Swamp Monster II
     More than FREAKIN' HARD!
     Gravity Boots platform

Aaaaarrrrrgggghhh! You should have almost all of the weapons before attempting
this. You must avoid falling into the mud, but more importantly, you must
AVOID THE MONSTER! Shoot the crap out of the monster with everything you got,
but I suggest using weak weapons first, because if you die, it'll cost
less bolts to replenish your ammunition than powerful guns. Use the
stronger ones when the monster's health is about halfway down. Just be even
more careful when you jump on other leaves to avoid falling to your death.
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
11-> Yeedil - Protopet Factory
     Mutated Protopet
     Difficulty depends on the weapons you possess
     End of level (of course)

Hope you have the UPGRADED Bouncer! If you don't you'll have a hard time
beating the Original Protopet.

a) If you have the Heavy Bouncer:
  Approach the Protopet CAREFULLY and throw the bouncer bomb at him while he
isn't surrounded by nanotech. If you do it quickly enough, he won't have time
to release some new protopets. Repeat until the mutated protopet breaks the
glass ground. Shoot the guards with the Megarocket Cannon and continue bombing
the protopet with the Bouncer. When the protopets are released, take the Blitz
Cannon to destroy them. If you do it correctly, your Bouncer ammo shouldn't be
depleted completely before the Original Protopet dies. Now watch the hilarious
ending. Congratulations!

b) If you don't have the Heavy Bouncer:
  I've never been able to beat the final boss without the Heavy Bouncer, so
you're out of luck. Go upgrade it on Damosel against the infinite amount of
Protopets at the beginning, and come back later to do section a). If you did
beat him without the Heavy Bouncer, please let me know how you did it, and I'll
post it here.

12-> Weapon recommendations

  - In this section, you can see my personal ratings for each of the weapons.
Since I don't possess every weapon in the game yet, I put N/A as rating for
weapons I didn't try. If you want a complete weapon guide, see the very good
Weapon FAQ by soroush123, here on GameFAQs. The ratings go from ONE to FIVE
stars for the weapons.
Note : The first mod in each weapon file is the "vanilla" gun, with the
       white icon. The second mod is the upgraded gun which you get from
       frequent use (orange icon). The third mod is the Challenge Mode weapon
       modification which you buy at Megacorp Vendors (very ugly greenish-
       yellowish icon), and the last mod is the Challenge Mode upgrade, which
       you get from frequent use of the "Mega" Challenge Mode weapon mod
       (Blue icon). It does sound complicated, but it's actually very easy...
