    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.

    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.

    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.

    5.5E) GRAND PRIZE BOUT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Prize: 2000 Bolts

    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.
