Before you begin the game and start collecting your trophies, here are some
tips that should help you get them all efficiently and quickly:

1) Play on Hard Difficulty: You will get a trophy for completing the game on
Casual, Medium and Hard. Completing the game on Hard first will allow you to

trouble, even if you are new to the series. (NOTE: Difficulties are suited for
Hard Difficulty)

by doing this that you can't obtain in a regular playthrough.

DESCRIPTION: Defeat General Azimuth and save the universe.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: You will receive this trophy after you defeat General Azimuth
                in the final battle. This not a hard fight. However, Azimuth
                has A LOT of health which makes for a pretty long battle.
                Also, there are no checkpoints in this fight - one death means
                you have start the fight all over again.

                The bright side to this fight is that it's very forgiving as
                Azimuth is actually really weak compared to all of the other
                bosses you have come across so far. Here are some tips that
                will ensure your success in this battle:

                - RESERVE YOUR BEST WEAPONS: As I mentioned before, this is a
                  long fight so you'll want to save your best weapons for
                  last, especially considering they won't give you any ammo
                  during the fight. When you get to the point when the arena
                  starts to heavily quake, bring out the big guns: RYNO V (if
                  you have it)
                - STAY IN THE MIDDLE: Make staying in the middle a priority
                  because as the battle goes on, more and more of the glass
                  will break, meaning more areas to kill yourself. The middle
                  is the only area that won't break so it's a good safe-zone
                  for you.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

DESCRIPTION: Save General Azimuth from Lord Vorselon's clutches.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: You'll acquire this on your SECOND visit to Lord Vorselon's
                ship. Note that you will have to fight Vorselon again, but his
                attack patterns are generally the same as when you fought him
                the first time. Use your original tactics and this fight, and
                the trophy, will be yours.

DESCRIPTION: Master the Hoverboots.

DIFFICULTY: *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Acquire the Hoverboots and complete all of the training
                courses in order to achieve this trophy. You shouldn't have
                much trouble with this except for, possibly, the final test.
                Other than that, a pretty easy trophy.

Saviour of Axiom City (Hidden/Bronze)                                    [BT09]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

DESCRIPTION: Destroy the VX-99.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: As the description states, destroy the VX-99 located in Axiom
                City in order to get this trophy. This fight has two
                phases:

                1) In this phase you'll want to dodge the lasers until they
                   stop and then use the bolt crank at the top of each arc.
                   Rinse and repeat until all the bolts are turned. Make sure
                   you immediately get off an arc once you destroy it as they
                   will fall off. When the arcs are gone you'll return to
                   solid ground. Take out the enemies and then grab on to
                   Azimuth's ship and head back to the VX-99 for the second
                   phase of the fight.

                2) At the start of this phase, you'll have to take out all of
                   the clamps to destroy the VX-99's protective shield. The
                   lasers here are pretty fast so having Mr. Zurkon out will
                   work wonders. His attacks aren't too bad when the shield is
                   gone. His missiles can be easily be avoided by constantly
                   strafing and keep jumping to avoid the lasers on the
                   ground. When his health hits zero, hop on Azimuth's ship
                   before time runs out and the battle is yours.

DESCRIPTION: Find the Obsidian Eye.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Complete all of the missions in Krell Canyon, Planet
                Lumos and enter the door that opens afterward. After the
                cutscenes that follow, you'll get this trophy.

DESCRIPTION: Confront Dr. Nefarious in the past.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Another story-based mission which is acquired on the Tombli
                Outpost. Plant three seeds in the soil in the past, then
                return to the present. Ride the newly grown vines to get some
                oil for the Omnisoaker. Return to the present again and use
                oil for the crank which will fix the bridge. Watch the scenes
                that follow and the trophy will appear afterward.

DESCRIPTION: Stop the Agorians from destroying Gimlick Valley.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: You'll get this trophy after finishing Gimlick Valley in the
                past. It's a usual war here and will end in boss battle with
                Argos. He's one of the more difficult bosses in the game.
                Here are some tips to help you:

                - He has a fast (and pretty accurate) laser attack. Avoid it
                  on the ground. It seems to be more likely to hit if you jump
                  while dodging it.
                - Short-range weapons are pretty much useless in this battle
                  as Argos is in a ship the entire time, so use the best long-
                  range weapons at your disposal (ex. Buzz Blades, Negotiator,
                  Mr. Zurkon).
                - Sometimes, enemies will appear on the battlefield, so throw
                  some Tesla Spikes out so they won't bother you while
                  fighting Argos.
  
                When the fight ends, and you watch the scenes, return to the
                present to receive your trophy and marvel at your awesome
                monument.

DESCRIPTION: Reunite with Clank.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: This trophy will be obtained in the Valkyrie Citadel,
                Vadpedia. The only thing that stands in your way is
                Cassiopeia, the final Valkyrie. Here are some tips to help you
                in that fight.

                - Keep the Swingshot as your equipped gadget as you will be
                  using it an awful lot.
                - Buzz Blades are very effective against her.
                - As always, Mr. Zurkon is a big help.

DESCRIPTION: Destroy Dr. Nefarious' armada.

DIFFICULTY: *

HOW TO ACHIEVE:  Use Nefarious' Hypernova Defence Laser to destroy his ships
                 and this trophy is yours.

                 First you'll have to destroy asteroids as practise until
                 you automatically leave the machine. Then call Lawrence and
                 tell him to land the fleet. Then go up to the Terrachnoid
                 and get rid of him (Press 'Circle') then take control of the
                 defence laser. Destroy all of the ships and this trophy is
                 yours. Simple, Easy, Fun.

Revenge of the Squishy (Hidden/Bronze)                                  [BT15]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

DESCRIPTION: Defeat Dr. Nefarious.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Follow the description's orders and defeat Dr. Nefarious to
                get this trophy. Here's a breakdown of his phases:

                1) The eyes on the space station wall you off while Nefarious
                   uses various attacks (Grenades, Laser Attack) and will also
                   sick UFOs on you later in the fight. Soon he will switch to
                   his second attack phase.

                2) He will activate a defence laser that will chase you
                   around the arena. Use you Hoverboots to escape it and get
                   as many Boost Pads as you can. Jump over the electrical
                   walls Nefarious throws at you. Eventually the laser will
                   start to destroy the arena you've been fighting on. Jump
                   the platforms and follow the path to the ship ahead and
                   the final phase begins.

                3) This is where the fight can be tricky. Lawrence sits
                   untouchable in the middle of the arena firing a slow, but
                   powerful laser. Nefarious will still attack at this time,
                   so watch him as well as the positioning of the laser. When
                   Nefarious' health starts to get really low, Lawrence will
                   activate a moving electric field on the ground as well as
                   his previous laser. Keep strafing to avoid Lawrence and
                   Nefarious' attacks and you should be fine.
 
                During the cutscene that follows the fight, this trophy will
                be yours.

DESCRIPTION: Visit the Insomniac Museum.

DIFFICULTY: *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: You will have access to the Insomniac Museum as soon as you
                vanquish Lord Vorselon after going back in time (See [XXXX]
                for info on the final Vorselon boss fight). Simply fly to
                the Insomniac Museum and you'll soon have the trophy. You
                don't have do anything there, but you might as well. :)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

DESCRIPTION: Score 10,000 points in "My Blaster Runs Hot"

DIFFICULTY: * * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Most people who play this game would argue that this is the
                toughest trophy in the game. "My Blaster Runs Hot" is located
                in the lobby of the Agorian Battleplex; it's the last arcade
                machine to the right, just before the stairs. Here are some
                things you should know about how this game works:

                - You start with three lives (1-Ups can randomly spawn)
                - Point multipliers can culminate if you can quickly take
                  out multiple enemies. You'll need to be very fast because
                  the multiplier won't stay for long.
                - When going for the trophy, I do not recommend playing
                  two-player. This is because both players get separate scores
                  and the game does not combine them at the end.

                And here are some tips to help you build a high score quickly.

                - On the first wave, enemies will only come out of the door at
                  the top. Move directly in front of it and fire at will.
                  If you're lucky, you should get a multiplier going for the
                  entire wave and get around 1,500 points in a single wave,
                  which can be a big help on your way to 10,000 points.
                - Save as many civilians as you can. They are worth 100 points
                  a piece and in a game like this, every point counts. Don't
                  depend on civilians to get the target score though. At times
                  they can be clustered in a field of enemies, and sometimes
                  it's better to let them die than to risk losing a life.
                - Overheating can be helpful. When you overheat, you can fire
                  a single, powerful laser attack which can take out multiple
                  enemies at a time. Keep in mind that you can't shoot again
                  until your gun temperature reverts to normal again.
                - You will eventually come across enemies that explode when
                  you get close to them. Use them to your advantage by getting
                  them to explode near other enemies and get big points. Keep
                  in mind you must shoot the bomb in order to get the points.
                  Also... don't get hit in the blast!
                - Go for pickups whenever you can. They will give you boosts
                  such as a temporary stronger gun, invincibility, or even an
                  extra life. Like with civilians, don't for a pickup if you
                  risk getting killed.

                Getting this trophy will take patience, persistence, and a lot
                of attempts! Keep at it, and you will eventually have this
                hard earned trophy... and never want to play this stupid
                mini-game ever again. :P

DESCRIPTION: Win the Bronze Tournament.

DIFFICULTY: *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: You'll get this trophy after you complete the Bronze

                currently have.

                NOTE: If you have trouble with any of the tournaments, you can

DESCRIPTION: Win the Gold Tournament.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: You'll get this trophy after you complete the Gold Tournament
                in the Agorian Battleplex. Now I would recommend you hold
                off on this Tournament until you have some better equipment
                or better yet, beat the game and go back in time with the
                weapons you have then.

                NOTE: If you have trouble with any of the tournaments, you can
                      always come back at a later time when you have some
                      better equipment.

                Tournament in the Agorian Battleplex. Just like for the Gold
                Tournament, wait until your weapons have gotten stronger. It

                NOTE: If you have trouble with any of the tournaments, you can
                      always come back at a later time when you have some

Zoni Collector (Silver)                                                 [ST02]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

DESCRIPTION: Collect all Zoni.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: As the description says, collect all of the Zoni to get this
                trophy. Not very difficult, but it can be time consuming.

                When you complete the Raritanium Tournament, you will get a
                Treasure Map, which will show the location of all Zoni, Gold
                Bolts, Constructo Mods, and RYNO V schematics (There's no
                trophy for the RYNO V, but I'm just saying).

                The Zoni are the easiest to get of the collectibles to find
                because they are not deeply hidden for the most part. Simply
                chase them when you see them until they stop, then hit them
                with your Wrench. For the ones that don't stop, get it close
                and throw your Wrench at them.

                The following is a breakdown of the amount of Zoni in each
                sector. There are 40 in total:

                 - - - - - - - - - - - -
                | Phylax Sector: 6      |
                | Vela Sector: 10       |
                | Korthros Sector: 14   |
                | Bernilius Sector: 7   |
                | Corvus Sector: 3      |
                 - - - - - - - - - - - -

Bolt Collector (Silver)                                                 [ST03]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

DESCRIPTION: Collect all Gold Bolts.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Like it says above, collect all of the Gold Bolts to get this
                trophy. Not unlike the Zoni, it's not a hard trophy, but it
                will take some time.
                
                When you complete the Raritanium Tournament, you will get a
                Treasure Map, which will show the location of all Zoni, Gold
                Bolts, Constructo Mods, and RYNO V schematics (No trophy for
                it -- why is that?).

                I recommend getting the Treasure Map before going Gold Bolt
                hunting. It's going to be so much easier to find them because
                you'll know where to look.
              
                The following is a breakdown of the amount of Gold Bolts in
                each sector. There are 40 in total:

                 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                | Phylax Sector: 6                  |
                | Vela Sector: 9                    |
                | Korthros Sector: 9                |
                | Bernilius Sector: 5               |
                | Corvus Sector: 3                  |
                | The Great Clock, Sector One: 1    |
                | The Great Clock, Sector Two: 2    |
                | The Great Clock, Sector Three: 2  |
                | The Great Clock, Sector Four: 3   |

DESCRIPTION: Collect all Constructo-Mods.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: As shown in the description, collect all of the Constructo-
                Mods to get this trophy. A fairly time-consuming trophy.

                When you complete the Raritanium Tournament, you will get a
                Treasure Map, which will show the location of all Zoni, Gold
                Bolts, Constructo Mods, and RYNO V schematics (I'm just going
                to keep asking for the whereabouts of this trophy :P).

                The following is a breakdown of the amount of Constructo-Mods
                in each sector. There are 21 in total:

                 - - - - - - - - - - - -
                | Phylax Sector: 2      |
                | Vela Sector: 4        |
                | Korthros Sector: 10   |
                | Bernilius Sector: 4   |

DESCRIPTION: Complete all space missions.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Space mission are performed while flying in-between planets
                and moons. They are marked by a yellow triangle or a green
                square. They are all pretty simple and shouldn't give too much
                problems.

                The game won't tell you how many you have/need, but they are
                easy to find.

DESCRIPTION: Vanquish Lord Vorselon

DIFFICULTY: * * on Casual; * * * * * on Hard/Hardcore

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Before I explain this trophy you will need the following
                before you can go tackle Vorselon:

                - Collect all Zoni. See [ST02]
                - Complete the game on any difficulty. See [GT04]

                Vorselon's ship will appear in the Corvus Sector. After you
                beat the game, go back in time and fly to his ship to reach
                this boss fight.

                Now on Hard mode, Vorselon will give you a run for your money
                and thoroughly kick your ass. The good news is, now that you
                (hopefully) beat the game on Hard, there's no reason to stay
                on Hard difficulty because this trophy does not restrict
                difficulty. Switch to Casual for the sake of this trophy, but
                if you really feel like challenging yourself, go for it:)

                A few tips for fighting Vorselon:

                - Bring the RYNO V! It will be a major help in this fight.
                - Keep Mr. Zurkon out at all times! Like always in this game,
                  Zurkon is an infinitely valuable battle companion.
                - Keep moving/strafing!

DESCRIPTION: Purchase all GrummelNet weapons.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Pretty self-explanatory. Buy all of the GrummelNet weapons to
                get this trophy. You should be able to do this by the time you
                reach the final battle. The following is everything you need
                to know about purchasing the GrummelNet weapons.

                NOTE: If you happen to have a save file from 'Ratchet & Clank
                Future: Tools of Destruction', you will be able to get all of
                the weapons that originated from that game at a discount.

HOW TO ACHIEVE: There isn't much to explain here; just collect 1,000,000
                bolts and this trophy is yours. You'll reach this amount in a
                single playthrough (I got it in the middle of the grind chase
                right before the final battle).

                NOTE: This is not a culminative total, meaning you don't have
                to hoard your bolts to get this trophy; the game counts the
                total for you.

Q-Force Champion (Gold)                                                 [GT04]

DESCRIPTION: Complete the game on Hard.

DIFFICULTY: * * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: Beat the game on Hard difficulty to get this trophy. If you
                play on Hard on your first run through the game you will aslo
                get the 'Q-Force Cadet and 'Q-Force Hero' trophies at the
                same time (Hence, why I stress to play on Hard).

DESCRIPTION: Complete a Challenge Mode playthrough.

DIFFICULTY: * *

HOW TO ACHIEVE: After you complete the game on any difficulty, you will unlock
                Challenge Mode. It's basically New Game+ as you maintain
                everything from your first playthrough (weapons and their
                levels, Nanotech, bolts, Skill Points, etc). Just beat the
                game again to get the trophy.

                The cool thing about it is, there's no restriction on
                difficulty (even though you unlock Hardcore mode), so you can
                just plow through the game on Casual to quickly get the
                trophy. :)
