Ratchet & Clank 3 Up Your Arsenal is the 3rd installment of the Ratchet & Clank
games. First there was Ratchet & Clank and then there was Ratchet & Clank 2
Going Commando but now there is Ratchet & Clank 3 Up Your Arsenal. You are a
ferret called Ratchet and you have a small robot called Clank to help you out
on your journeys. As you progress through the universe trying to stop Doctor
Nevarious and his evil ways you will come across weapons and upgrades. Expect
the unexpected as there are a few twists along the way and remember to destroy
anything you see moving !!!

This is the main part of my FAQ/Walkthrough which will take you through the
game bit by bit. Where there is a enemy to defeat i will say so here in this
section of the guide.

After watching Agent Clank fight his way out of a casino you will see a
reporter reporting from Veldin. You get your first climpse of the Doctor
Nevarious and his Tyhrranoids destroying Veldin.

===============================================================================
5.1) Veldin
===============================================================================

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.1A) Save Veldin!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stay back as Galactic Rangers on your side (goodies) defeat some big robot
Tyrranoids (badies). After a few seconds they will be destroyed and they will
start climbing up the rocks. Pick up the gold little bolts on the floor
(you will need these in the future) and follow the Galactic Rangers up the
rocks. When you get close to them there will be a cutscene where a Galactic 
Ranger gives you their Shock Blaster. This is your first gun and is a very
basic weapon. Hold down triangle and a pop up should appear. This is your quick
select option which lets you change from weapon to weapon with ease. You should
see the Shock Blaster at the top of the circle. Click on it to activate it.
A Tyhrranoid should appear from around the corner. Make sure you have equipped
the Shock Blaster and then shock it by pressing circle. After 3 hits it should
explode. Collect the bolts off of the floor and go around the corner. There is
a gap which you will need to jump over by pressing X. Once onto the otherside
kill the 3 Tyrranoids by either using your Shock Blaster or your wrench
(sqaure). Once they are dead open up the boxes to your right with your wrench
to get back some Shock Blaster ammo, some bolts and a blue box which will
replenish your health. Jump up the rocks and defeat the Tyrranoid with your
Shock Blaster and continue up slope to the Galactic Rangers for your next
cutscene. You are told by the Rangers that someone needs to stop that vehicle.
So suprise suprise it has to be you. So with your new Nitro Launcher which you
just got, you should throw a grenade at the vehcile. One direct hit is enough
to destroy it. Once destroyed pick up the lose bolts and smash the crates. Go
down the hole and into the pathway below. Shoot down the tiny Tyrranoids and
proceed down the tunnel untill you see some big Tyrranoids attacking the
Galactic Rangers. You will need to hold down L1 to get precise aim on your
enemies. So make sure you have the Shock Blaster out and press and hold L1.
Now look up and aim at the Tyrranoid in the platform in the middle and fire.
5 hits and it will be destroyed and the Rangers had been saved. Smash open
some crates to replenish health and regain ammo and then run up the steps to
find a Tyrranoid. Destroy it and then destroy and then destroy the vehicle
in front of you by using the Nitro Launcher. Smash open the crates pn your
right and defeat the 2 Tyrranoids firing at you and then another one will apear
which you wll need to gun down. Some small Tyrranoids should come and attack
you but that shouldn't be much of a threat. Take care of them and then move on
to the bigger Tyrranoid firing at you. Brake the crates behind him and then
go across the narrow bridge killing the little Tyrranoids on the way. At
around this point your nanotech level should increse. Your nanotech is your
health and you start off with 10 of them. Now you should be on 11. Help the
Galactic Rangers out by defeating the big Tyrranoid and head on down and then
up the rocks to what seems like a broken building (just before you walk into
it you might want to brake the crates on the left). Go through the ruins
of the building and up and into the ship where the Galactic Rangers are
waving to complete your first mission.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.1B) Eliminate the Enemy Forces
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Follow the Rangers out of the plane and begin to free fall. On your way down
simply avvoid getting hit by the missles which is rather simple. When you land
you should be bombared by Tyrranoids. They come from every direction so get
out your Shock Blaster and shoot everything you se move (apart from the
Galactic Rangers of course). Once you have destroyed the Tyrranoids another
bunch of them will come out through the door which opens. Kill them and then
you should just explore the area you are in looking for crates and health
crates. Go through the door and brake the crates in the little ditch infront
of you. Next you will need to jump up the rocks and destory the vehcile by
using the Nitro Launcher. Once that is destroyed a bridge will be made and you
need to go over it and into the ship on the otherside to get your first glance
of the president. He wants you to go and find the monkey Captain Quark !!!

===============================================================================
5.2) Florana
===============================================================================

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2A) Find the mysterious man
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you start go forward and approach the yellow box which has a sign
swivelling around saying GADGETRON. When you go near it a pop up will appear
saying "Triangle Activate Vendor". Pres triangle and you will enter a shop.
Here you will find guns and you will also be able to buy ammo for your guns.
If you have 15,000 bolts then i recommend you buy the N60 Storm as thats a 
great gun to have but i guess you don't have that much bolts yet so if not
just wait and get it later. Dont bother buying the Plasma Whip, it's one of
the worst weapons in the game as it really does suck. but anyway, stock up on
ammo if you need to and then get out of the shop and jump onto the float on
the water. Kill the flys hovering around and keep jumping on the floats untill
you get onto a big platform. Ignore the pop up which tells you about controls
and walk on out onto the platform. You should see some enemies which could be
monkeys slide down on a green rope and come and attack you. Defeat them and
turn around and go the opposite direction heading for a cave. Go in and you
should see a green box. When you brake this you will get double the normal
ammount of bolts in a short period of time. So brake all the crates/boxes you
can see as quick as possible to get around 5,000 bolts. Now go back to where
the monkeys were and jump onto the platform. Some more monkeys should come
and also a big sea creature should pop his head up. Defeat the monkeys and
then start blasting away at the sea creature with your Shock Blaster. Now jump
on to the next platform and smash open the crates. Then go through the door
and kill the monkeys (unless you already killed them outside). Jump up the
ledges and get the health crate. Now go right when you get near to the top
instead of left because left is a dead end. Jump up the ledge and then double
jump and get out your helipad so you can make it over to the next ledge.
Around 10 monkeys will now come out and attack you. Defeat them all and
hopefully your gun should upgrade if it hasn't already. Now your Shock Blaster
is a Shock Blaster V2 and is stronger and can hold 5 more ammo. Also you can
hold down circle after firing to get a even stronger attack. Now, look for a
yellow ladder which is actually just alot of poles, climb up it by pressing
X when next to the ladder. Keep pressing X to proceed higher. When at the top
get out your Shock Blaster and destroy the 3 monkeys which are talking in a 
huddle and then collect their bolts. Go into the GADGETRON if you need more
ammo or if you now have enough to buy the N60 Storm. Hopefully you should
have enough bolts now so get it !!!
     Now go out onto the platform and your game should automatically save.
You will need to jump off and use the helipad to make your way over to where
the monkey is. When you land kill it and the sea creature should appear
again. Shoot it with your new N60 Storm (or Shock Blaster if you don't have
it yet) and it should fall easily. There will be two monkeys on another
platform chucking some sort of poisionous boomerang at you. So with your new
N60 Storm lock onto them and start firing. You will know if you have locked
on because you will see a green circle displayed on the enemy. Thats where
your gun will fire. Use L2 and R2 to move left and right whilst still
locking onto the enimies. This will be tremendoulsy handy in the future so if
you can get good at it now then you will be alot better. Jump over to the
platform and brake open the red and yellow crate. This will turn ratchet very
deadly and everything he hits will die in 1 hit. So get it and run into the
room where you should be attacked by more monkeys. This is only for a small
period of time though so make the most of it. Once the monkeys are dead a
bridge will lower and you will need to kill a few more monkeys. Then go to
where the monkeys just came from when you lowered the bridge. You will need to
jump from one wall to the enxt as you make your way to the top of the wall.
There is now two ways to go, on your left will be some crates you can open
for bolts and a health pack whilst on the right is the way you need to go to
proceed. So do what you need to do but eventually go right and up the yellow
ladder. Defeat the two enimies and head out onto the platform. Next, get
underneath the zipline and jump. Ratchet will use his Wrench t slide him down
to more monsters. When you land they will be everywhere so get out your Wrench
and start slashing at the flys. Well it might be easier to destroy the two
sea creatures first but i don't know do what ever is best for you. Once
defeated you should walk across the bridge and kill some more monkeys. Get
their bolts and the bolts from the crates and a drawbridge should lower for
you. Climb up the yellow ladder and slash away at the flys and get the health
crate if needed. Finally jump below the wire and you will meet the mysterious
man.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2B) Walk the PATH OF DEATH
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is hardly a path of death, its easy but ill guide you through it anyway.
Stock up on ammo if needed from the GADGETRON and then head forward and jump
from platform to platform quickly before they collapse. Get to the end and
defeat the two monkeys, now on your right will be boulders falling down a
slope in your direction. Run up the slope whilst dodging the boulders and
defeat the two monkeys which greet you at the top. Smash open the crates and
then jump on the platform and onto the ledge quickly without falling. Next
you will need to jump onto the platforms at the right tiem or else you will
be burnt. Fortunatly these platforms don't fall but you still need to go quick
as of the flames. Jump across the platforms and soon you will see a bunch of
flys. Defeat them and smash open the crates on your left. You should then see
some monkeys running at you but hopefully they will be getting squashed by the
slabs of rock or getting burtn by the flames. Well make sure they are dead and
then head through the passageway minding the flams and minding the slabs of
rocks. Once at the end of the passageway kill the flys and the monkeys and
then make your way across the pit of fire by dodging the flames. Once you get
to the end look to your right and you should see more boulder heading towards
you coming down a slope. Make your way up the slope like before but this time
also dodging the flames. Restock on ammo if you need to and then go across
the bridge to confront the mysterious man.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2C) Defeat Captain Quark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey its Quark, he is still in the game. The friendship between Ratchet and
Quark seizes to amaze me. But anyway, on with the game. Quark is your first
boss and he isn't too hard if you attack him at the right time. Get out the
N60 Storm and start firing. If he comes running up to you then simply carry
on shooting but moving (do this my strafing by pressing L2 or R2). When he
throws his boomerang at you just simply jump over it to stop yourself getting
hurt. At some point he should run off and a bunch of monkeys will come down
(im so sick of them). Defeat the monkeys and Quark will return to the scene.
Then later on he will do this again but he will be attacking you aswell as the
monkeys and there will also be some flys. Keep shooting at him and the battle
should be over after a couple of minutes. You find out that Quark thinks he is
a monkey so head on over to the Starship Phoenix and they will see what they
can do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2D) Take Quark to his cage
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you land in the Starship Phoenix start heading towards his cave. Press
R3 (right analouge stick pushed inwards) to look at the map to help you. You
need to head for the "Play Vid-Comic" room and then a cutscene starts.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2E) Meet Sasha on the bridge
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now Quark is safely in his own little home you need to get back to buissness.
To start head for the bridge using the R3 button to look at the map to help
you (its right at the top). Upon arrivel a cutscene starts and it seems to
President is in trouble.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2F) Fly to Marcadia
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You need to go to Marcadia so head back to your ship collecting ammo on your
way from the GADGETRON if you need to and getting a new suit of armour for
7,500 bolts if needed (which i highly suggest you do from the Armor Vendor
section of the Phoenix) and get into the ship.


===============================================================================
5.3) Starship Phoenix
===============================================================================

There isn't really anything to do here apart from rest and chill out. There is
some Captain Quark games though which you will play later on in the game and
there is a trainging facility but thats about it. Just go explore all the
rooms like the Trophy Room to see all the trophys you have found during the
game. All the missions that go on in the game WON@T be found here. They will
be found in the previous level. So lets say you have to take Quark to his
cage. The guide of that mission will be on the level before the Phoenix. If
you don't get it email me and ill ty to explain better.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.3A) Play Vid-Comic
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...............................................................................
5.3A Vid-Comic 1) Pirate Booty
...............................................................................

When you have gotten the Vid-Comic from Al head here in the Phoenix and go to
the lounging area where quark is aping around and go up to the big widescreen
T.V for a cutscene. Once its finished you will relise you are in a 2D game
and you are controlling Quark. You need to get to the end of the level in the
fastest time you can. Im not gonna describe how to complete these Vid-Comic
missions as they are really quite easy. So keep going forward collecting blue
and red tokens on the way (gives you bolts at the end) and you should pass
this no problem. At the end you will have to defeat a boss, to do this simply
fire at him using your blaster and dodge his attacks. Simple. Once you have
finished watching the cutscenes head to the Anihalation Nation level and
search 5.5) when pressing Control and F to get to the next part of the guide.

...............................................................................
5.3A Vid-Comic 2) Arriba Amoeba!
...............................................................................

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.3B) VR Deck
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here you can either train yourself up by doing simple missions and earning
bolts or you can test out new weapons that have become avaliavle in the
GADGETRON which you have not brought. On the challenges, i have wrote them
whilst i was at the beggning of the game, meaning i had few weapons so in the
challenges you might see me say "Get out your Shock Blaster". If you have
completed the game and just comming back to get 100% then choose what ever gun
you wish, this section of the walkthrough probably won't be much use to you.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 1) WARM UP
...............................................................................

Prize: 300 Bolts
Info: Fight Gadgetron test dummies in a simulated battle arena!

There is 5 rounds of test dummies comming at you. For 5 rounds they will keep
comming for you being transported from somewhere to the arena. Just simply
get out your Shock Blaster and kick the dummies ass.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 2) DON'T LOOK DOWN 
...............................................................................

Prize: 500 Bolts
Info: Watch out for disappearing floor panels while fighting the test dummies!

This time there is 6 waves of test dummies coming for you. Also, the floor
will be moving around so becareful making sure you don't get sucked down into
another dimension. Just like the previous challenege get out your Shock
Blaster and bang bang bang. Also, the dummies can hover over the gaps so
trying to knock them into the holes made by the floor is useless.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 3) THE SHOCKER
...............................................................................

Prize: 500 Bolts
Info: Destroy all the test dummies using only the Shock Blaster!

For this challenge you must only use your Shock Blaster. No other weapons or
Wrench just your Shock Blaster. This is pretty much what you were doing before
but easier because there is only 3 rounds of the dummies. Just go bang bang
bang but making sure you stay away from the moving panels on the floor.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 4) SPEED ROUND 
...............................................................................

Prize: 400 Bolts
Info: Destroy all the test dummies before time runs out!

You have 1:00 to destroy all the test dummies. There is only 2 rounds so you
can afford to take your time. Just get out your Shock Blaster and try to hit
them when they just get transported into the arena. This way there is a few
of them togetehr killing them all in with using only 1 ammo.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 5) WRENCH BEATDOWN 
...............................................................................

Prize: 600 Bolts
Info: Destroy all the test dummies using only the Omniwrench!

This is just like the "THE SHOCKER" challenge but this time you may only use
your Wrench instead of the Shock Blaster. I found holding down R1 and throwing
the Wrench at the enemy the easiest as you could hit them from a distance so
their blue flame won't reach you. Finally, the panels move on the second and
third rounds.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 6) HOT STEPPER
...............................................................................

Prize: 700 Bolts
Info: The floor panels will leave and return as you fight test dummies!

This is the biggest challenge so far. Endurance is the key as there is 8
rounds of test dummies comming at you. The panels will dissapear and then
reapear so keep your eyes open. Use your Shock Blaster to demolish the
dummies going to the Gadgetron crates everynow and then to pick up ammo.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 7) 90 SECOND SLAYER
...............................................................................

Prize: 1000 Bolts
Info: Destroy even more dummies before time runs out!

You have 90 seconds (1:30) to destroy 3 rounds of test dummies. Use the same
tactics as the "SPEED ROUND" challenge and you should pass. Remember that the
panels will move and finally remember to go quick.

...............................................................................
5.3B Challenege 8) NERVES OF TITANIUM
...............................................................................

Prize: 2000 Bolts & Titanium Bolt
Info: Fight through the final VR battle and win a Titanium Bolt!

This is the final chanllenge in the VR Deck. Your prize is a Titanium Bolt so
it's really worth having a go at this. There is 12 rounds of test dummies so
this is going to be quite hard. The panels will appear and reapear throughout
the rounds. Just try and get it over and done quickly. When a new round starts
go up to the dummies and take them out quick before they get a chance to
spread. Good Luck.

===============================================================================
5.4) Marcadia
===============================================================================

When you arrive some Galactic Rangers tell you what you need to do in a
cutscene. keep your head down and take out the enemies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.4A) Get to the Palace
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you start go to the GADGETRON infront of you to restock on ammo or buy a 
new weapon which you might want and then head forward towards the Galactic
Ranger. Follow them into a bunch of small Tyrranoids and let them do the
shouting while you pick up the bolts. Turn right around the corner and you
will meet a couple of bigger Tyrranoids. Luckily the Rangers will defeat them
for you so you can smash open some crates and get bolts and some health if you
need it. But they wont last long and after i while they will probably be
destroyed but the Tyrranoids would have been weakened alot so just finish them
off with your Wrench. Go up the winding steps and you shall meet some more
Tyrranoids. Smash open the green box to get a X2 multiplyer so all the bolts
you get in a short period of time will be double and then defeat the
Tyrranoids using your Shock Blaster. Go up the steps and through the passageway
to be greeted by more Tyrranoids. Shoot them down and the proceed along to
find even more Tyrranoids. Defeat them and then look for gadgetron crates as
you will probably be out of ammo for your Shock Blaster. Once ready double
jump over the broken bridge, brake open the red crate and turn fiery. Now as
quickly as possible go up to the Tyrranoids and slash them with your Wrench.
Once all dead help out the Galactic Ranger and watch a short cutscene. After
that you are back into action and you need to jump over the ledge and take
out the final lot of Tyrranoids. Once they are all dead smash open some crates
for bolts and ammunition and then head into the ship to complete the mission.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.4B) BATTLE MISSIONS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Throughout the game there will be a mission where the Galactic Rangers need
your help. Do the missions and gain bolts. Also, at the end of every mission
your health will be restored

...............................................................................
5.4B Battle Mission 1) Secure the Area
...............................................................................

Prize: 3000 Bolts
Info: Drive the Tyrranoids out of the compound then defend the area against a
series of brutal attacks.

When you step out ignore the Galactic Rangers plea for help and get straight
into buisness by taking out the Tyrranoids. There will be a few of them on the
left which you should take out with little problems. Just make sure you get
out your weapon (N60 Storm in my opinion) and take them out before they take
you out. After a while you will hear a Galactic Ranger say that the Tyrranoids
are bringing in reinforcements. So when you see ships coming and landed then
you know more enemies have been released. Just keep plonking away and it
should be over quite quickly. This is quite hard for a new beginner but keep
trying as its not too hard if you hold dow L2 or R2 to strafe and dodge enemy
attacks.

...............................................................................
5.4B Battle Mission 2) Air Assault
...............................................................................

Prize: 4500 Bolts
Info: The Rangers cant hold out much longer. They need backup, now! Save as
many Rangers as you can.

Your aim for this mission is to make sure that at least 1 Galactic Ranger
survives. So you CANT take your eye of them for one second. Basically do what
you did in the previous mission and you should be fine. At first Tyrranoids
will come from the right and then they will start coming from the left so make
sure you keep turning. And finally at the end they will come from both sides,
at this point you should just go all out and destroy quickly. Really this is
quite a easy mission.

...............................................................................
5.4B Battle Mission 3) Turrent Command
...............................................................................

Prize: 6000 Bolts
Info: Get to the plasma turret and blast those 'noid dropships out of the sky!

In this battle mission you control a turret. You need to take out the dropships
which come in from the sky to drop off Tyrranoids. They will come from all
differant arears so make sure you have you swivel around quite a bit looking
for the ships. This took me a few times to complete on my first run through of
the game so i know it can be a pain but if you keep shooting continuesly at
the ships and the Tyrranoids then you should pass.

...............................................................................
5.4B Battle Mission 4) Under the Gun
...............................................................................

Prize: 7500 Bolts
Info: Provide covering fire for the repai crew untill they can get the turret
operational again.

Now the turrent is broken and the Galactic Rangers must fix it. Your job is to
provide backup for them and protect them at all costs. Do the same as you did
on mission 2 and you should be fine, the only difference is that there is
more Tyrranoids this time round. If you ever get close to losing all your
health then look for the health crate behind where the turret was. Protect
the Rangers for 2:00 and the mission will be complete.

...............................................................................
5.4B Battle Mission 5) Hit n' Run
...............................................................................

Prize: 9000 Bolts
Info: Use the bolt cranks to activate the automated turrets in sequence.

I think this is quite a easy mission. All you need to do is tighten up some
weird machinery with your wrench. When you start go forward and go to the
first machine which has a bolt of electricity flowing to it. Go to the bolt
and press sqaure. Now walk round and round untill the bolt is tight. This is
simply what you have to do 4 more times. You will now need to look for the
next machine which has blue electricity flowing into it and tighten the bolt
there. But its not that simple, there will be Tyrranoids trying to stop you
all the time. So when you get to the next machine i suggest you have a look
around and kill Tyrranoids which look like a threat to you. Good Luck.

When all five battle missions are finished the president comes and has a chat
to you about your next job in a cutscene. You will need to put up a new laser
shield back up for the president.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.4C) Go to Laser Defence Facillity
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you arrive go forward and pick up the Refractor gadget. You will need
this because without it when you go through the red laser beams you will burn.
This gadget prevents you from burning as it creates a shield around you. So
get the Refractor and smash open some crates if you want to get ammo and
bolts. Once finished go through into the room ahead of you and take out the
Tyrranoids. Now on your left you will see a red laser beam, equip your
Refractor and stand in the middle of the beam. You will notice that you can
redeirect the beam. You might see a small little hole with some sort of wheel
spinning around with a purple center. What you need to do is hold down L1 and
aim the beam at the purple spot spinning around. This will cause a door to open
and you will be welcomed by some baby Tyrranoids. Kill them and then go and
screw in the screw in the middle of the room using your Wrench which will
cause one of the purple spots to move. Now go back to the otherside of the room
and put the Refractor back on. Stand in the beam and aim at the spot which
you just moved. Now the door should open and more little Tyrranoids will come
after you. Take out the Tyrranoid and then shine the beam at the purple spot,
next go pass the beam and screw in the screw using your Wrench to move one
of the purple spots. Finally shine the beam at the last purple spot and
progress through the door. Take out the Tyrranoid and crates and shine the
beam at the purple spot in the middle of the next room. Brake open the crates
for bolts and ammo and then tighten the screw which will cause the purple spot
to move. Jump up onto the ledge and take out the two little Tyrranoids and aim
the beam at the next purple spot which will cause a bridge made out of the
beam to be made. Cross to the otherside quickly nefore the bridge collapses
and take out the Tyrranoid robot on the left. Progres into the next small room
and kill the small Tyrranoids. Once they are dead jump up onto the platform
with your Refractor gadget on and aim the beam to the right of the room. You
will notice that the spider will follow the beam, so slowly move the beam into
the picture of a spider on the wall. Once this is done the door to the next
room is open and a bunch of baby Tyrranoids will approach you. Take care of
them and enter into the next room. Screw in the screw and then jump up onto
the platform with your Refractor on and reflect the beam into the purple spot
to open the next door. Go through and another bunch of baby Tyrranoids will
come after you but hopefully they should perish in the beam hehe. Brake open
the crates if needed and then tighten the screw, next go over to the purple
spot which you just move (with refractor gadget on) and reflect the beam into
the two purple spots eitherside of the door (to do this make sure you go to
the end of the beam light so you can see the purple spot). Go through the
door and get rid of the baby Tyrranoid and go through to Al the guy in the
white cloak to finally complete this long and boring mission. At least you
get to watch a enjoyable cutscene.
   When the cutscene is over you will need to get on top of the green portal
and press triangle. This will transport you back to the dropship (didnt for me,
i went back throgh all the rooms to get back to the ship >_<) and you will
need to fly back to the Starship Phoneix to play the Vid Comic you just got
from Al. Because the Starship Phoenix is the level before Marcadia you will
beed to scroll up this walkthrough to see the next part. Press control and F
to bring up a search engine. Now type in "5.3A" (whats inside the ") and you
shall be at the next part of the guide.

5.5) Anihilation Nation
===============================================================================

After you have completed Vid-Comic Episode 1 you need to head to the
Anihilation Nation level to pick up some sort of device which lets you speak
to small Tyrranoids. So get in your ship and head to the new level to see what
you have just let yourself into.
   There is alot of small mini missions which you can do here which envlove
different deathcourses. So this part of the guide might be a bit messy but i
hope you understand it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.5A) DEATHCOURSE CHALLENGE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prize: 5000 Bolts
Info: Be the first contestant to survive the Deathcourse Challenge and win
Qwark vid-comic 2 and the Tyhrra-Guise!

When you start you will need to go and jump onto the platform infront of you
when it is not on fire. Jump onto the platforms in the middle and then jump
onto the final set of platforms and then jump into the building. Defeat the
pests which attack you and then step on the switch on the floor to open the
door on your left. Go through the door and down the stairs untill you get to a
sequence of platforms. Run along the platforms dodging the attacks at the
same time and get yourself up onto a ledge where two Gladiator enemies will
attack you. Destroy them with one of your guns if you wish but i suggest you
just ignore them and jump up the ledges on your right. When the fire is off
run across the square platforms jumping when the flame fires up and defeat
the Gladiator at the end firing the blue beam with your Wrench. Go into the
room ahead of you and take out the flying flys which are in the room. Stock
up on health and bolts if you wish and then press the switch on the floor to
open the door on your righ. Take out the flys and the Gladiator and progress
into the next room where you shall defeat another Gladiator. Hit the switch
and go through the door on your left and onto the platforms with blocks moving
in and out. Wait for the blocks to go in and then run over the platforms and
jump over to the next set of platforms so you dont meet a fiery death. Take
out the flys and progress past the moving blocks to a Gladiator which you
shall ignore as you run on into the next room to complete the Challenge to
collect your next Vid-Comic.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.5B) CRISPY CRITTER
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prize: 2000 Bolts
Info: Navigate a lethal obstacle course featuring fire traps, break away
floors, push blocks, and killer robots.

Same idea as the other challenege except slightly different. Jump onto the
platforms avoding the flames and the platforms which fall and make your way
onto the switch ahead in the room. Go right and jump from one falling platform
to the next as you get across to the other side where the Razor camaras are.
Jump up the ledges avoding the fire and throw your Wrench at the Blue Beamed
Gladiator to take him out. Turn left and run thought the middle avoding fire
from the Blue Beamed Gladiators above you and the Gladiators with clubs. Step
on the switch and get health if needed and then go left into the next and run
into the next room where you need to step on the switch and go through the
door on the right. For the final bit you need to run through the battlefield
avoding fire and jumping at all times to stop yourself getting hit by
projectiles from the ninjas.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.5C) PYRO PLAYGROUND
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prize: 3000 Bolts
Info: Navigate a lethal obstacle course featuring fire traps, break away
floors, push blocks, and killer robots.

When you start jump onto the platforms at the precise time to stop yourself
getting burnt and make your way onto the switch in the middle of the next
room. Destroy the razor cameras amd go left through the door and jump from
one platform to the next untill you get to the ledges. Defeat the enemies
on the ledge and make your way other to the push blocks where you will need
to jump from to get to the next ledge. Take out the Beamed Gladiator and
stand on the switch to open the door on the left, just like the previous
challenge you need to run past the enemies and get into the next room to get
the bolts.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.5D) SUICIDE RUN
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prize: 4000 Bolts
Info: Navigate a lethal obstacle course featuring fire traps, break away
floors, push blocks, and killer robots.

When you start go across the platforms jumping over the flames and hitting
the switch in the next room to open the door on your right. Go through it an
make your way across the firey platforms to find some ledges which you jump
up to release a load of razor cameras. Then turn left and run to the next
room avoding the fire from the Beamed Gladiator and then defeat the ninjas
which attack you as you into the next room. Hit the switch and go through the
door to find some push blocks, simply jump over them avoding them pushing you
off the edge and the bolts will be yours.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.5E) GRAND PRIZE BOUT
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Prize: 2000 Bolts
Info: Fight all the gladiators and win a Tyhrra-Guise!

This time instead of going through a deathcourse you need to defeat enemies
in 10 rounds. First round you get Warriors, 2nd round you get Beamed
Gladiators, 3rd round you get a ton of Razor Cameras, 4th round is a mix of
Warriors and Beam Gladiators and the 5th round is more Razor Cameras. For the
6th wave you will get some crates full of ammo and a destructive crate to
power up Ratchet and you also get Beamed Gladiators and Warriors. In the 7th
round you get Razor Cameras and Beamed Gladiators and in the 8th round you
get Razor Cameras and Warriors and finally in the 9th and 10th rounds you
get Razor Cameras, Beamed Gladiators and WEarriors attacking you. I suggest
you whip out your N60 Storm again the Gladiators and Warriors but when there
is just Razor Cameras you should save your ammo and you your Wrench. When all
are dead Britney Gears comes out in a cutscene to give you the Tyhrra-Guise.
   Quark has been put in charge of the Starship Phoenix team so you need to
go back to the Phoenix to see whats actually happening. When you arrive you
are entered into a cutscene with Captain Quark and you are told what your next
mission is. When its over you get co-ordinates for the planet Aquatos where
you must go for your next mission.
