    | Omniwrench |
    /| |\  Power: Medium
    \|+|/  Range: Melee
       |    Total Ammo: N/A
       |    Cost: N/A
    The Wrench is the weapon always programmed into Square and is one of
    the two weapons that you have at the beginning of the game. You can
    do many things with it, you can do a normal strike, a strike
    combination, an powerful Downward Strike, and a useful Comet Strike
    that can hit enemies at a distance.
    | Bomb Glove |
      (__   Power: Low
    /  \\   Range: Medium
    |   ||  Total Ammo: 40
    \___/   Cost: 5 Bolts per round
    The Bomb Glove is the other default weapon in the game. You can stock
    up on them at Ratchet's home, and more ammo is available anywhere.
    The Bomb Glove is a fairly good beginner weapon, and you can throw it
    farther than a Comet Strike.
    | Pyrocitor |
       /|   Power: Low
    \/ //  Range: Short
    | //|   Total Ammo: 240
    '///   Cost: 2,500 Bolts for Weapon, 1 Bolt per round
    The Pyrocitor is also a fairly strong beginner weapon, and fairly
    cheap. You can first buy it in Novalis's Tobruk Crater.
    | Blaster |
       |    Power: Low
    _/ \_  Range: Long
      \ /   Total Ammo: 200
       |    Cost: 2,500 Bolts for weapon, 1 Bolt per round
    The Blaster is one of the most useful weapons you'll have for a
    while. It has a fairly large ammo capacity, is cheap, and is a long-
    range weapon. Any enemies that have a long range of attack, or that
    you're too scared to approach, let the Blaster do the job. The
    Blaster is first available in Metropolis in Kerwan.
    | Glove of Doom |
       *    Power: Medium
    .\ /.  Range: Medium
    \___/   Total Ammo: 10
      """   Cost: 7,500 Bolts for weapon, 40 Bolts per round
    The Glove of Doom is also a useful weapon. Any large amount of
    enemies around, or if you're unsure of facing an enemy, the Glove of
    Doom is here. It releases four mini-robots that have about the attack
    power of the wrench and go automatically up to an enemy. It's
    expensive, but eventually worth it. You can first get it in the
    Logging Site in Eudora.
    | Suck Cannon |
    |\     Power: Medium
    || /__ Range: Medium
    || \?? Total Ammo: N/A
    |/     Cost: N/A
    The Suck Cannon isn't that useful, at least at the beginning of the
    game. I sometimes find it hard to control, and you usually don't find
    an enemy small enough to fit in it that you can't defeat easily anyway.
    Later in the game it comes more in handy, when small means deadly.
    You get it for free if you go through the Logging Site, and you don't
    need to pay for ammo.
    Sasha Note: It is VERY useful in Level 11. Get it. You won't regret it. 
    I could NOT have beaten the level without it.
    | Taunter |
       / /  Power: N/A
    |?| __ Range: Long
    |_|    Total Ammo: N/A
       \ \  Cost: 2,500 Bolts for weapon
    The taunter is another no-ammo weapon, though it can't directly be
    used as a weapon. It's pretty cheap, though. You can use it to attract
    enemies, or as an easy way to blow up a ton of crates at a time. It's
    first available at the Space Station in Nebula G34.
    | Mine Glove |
       _    Power: Medium
    \ / \ / Range: Medium
    | O |  Total Ammo: 50
    / \_/ \ Cost: 7,500 Bolts for weapon, 5 Bolts per round
    The Mine Glove is kind of expensive, but it's fun to play around
    with. You lay a mine, and you can use the taunter with it to lure
    enemies to mines. You can first get it at Blackwater City in Rilgar.
    | Devastator |
      /_\   Power: High
    </ \>  Range: High
    /___\  Total Ammo: 20
    \/V\/  Cost: 10,000 Bolts for weapon, 50 Bolts per round
    (Description by Sasha)
    You can get this in Level 8 and it is very useful. It is VERY powerful 
    and you can use it to destroy enemies from far away. You got to love 
    that power! 
    | Walloper |
      /  \  Power: High
    /    | Range: Melee
    \ __/  Total Ammo: 50
      \__/  Cost: 7,500 Bolts for weapon, 5 Bolts per round
    (Description by Sasha)
    This is a very useful weapon you can get in Level 9. It is basically 
    REQUIRED to get through the level. You can use it to destroy the mine 
    thing that follow you. Very useful.
    | Visibomb Gun |
            Power: High
            Range: Infinite
    | ? |   Total Ammo: 20
      \_/   Cost: 15,000 Bolts for weapon, 100 Bolts per round
    (Description by Sasha)
    Very good and powerful weapon. Has really good range and can blow 
    things up really, uh, well. Kind of like the Devastator.
    | Decoy Glove |

      / \   Cost: 7,500 Bolts for weapon, 10 Bolts per round
    (Description by Sasha)
    This thing can be thrown in close range to act as a "decoy." I don't 
    find them very useful, though.

    (Description by Sasha)
    These things circle around you, killing enemies that are in your way. 
    They also defend you from thing that are attacking you (like missiles.) 
    There are five in every bit of ammo. Use them wisely.

    (Description by Sasha)
    Very powerful weapon. It cost quite a bit to get it, but the ammo costs 
    very little. Personally, I don't think it is worth it, but some people 
    like it.

    the mission and the level are purely optional.

    Yay. After you solve a puzzle, a door opens. Anyway, this is also very 
    important as you need it to beat to beat the game. Actually, you need

    This races water levels. This also lowers water levels. Wait, it 
    "displaces" water levels. That's good. Basically, you can make water 
    levels go up and down with this. It is important on Levels 6, 11, and a 
    bunch more, so get it and start singing. Okay, you don't NEED to sing, 
    but you can.

    metal! Yahoo!

    Win the race in Level 6 to get this. It is not THAT necessary, but it

    This let's you grind on various rails in the game. Very useful and 
    important. When grinding, you should always jump to avoid obstacles. 
    (But you knew that.)

    This lets you do Level 10 with Ratchet. To get it, beat Level 9 and use 
    that in one of the last missions in Level 11. (See walkthrough.) It is 
    pretty self-explanatory.

    (By Sasha Slutsker)
    The start!
    Well, this is where you start. After watching the story begin, you find 
    yourself on a planet looking for a guy named Clank. This is incredibly 
    easy so I'll just give a brief walkthrough. From the start, go forward 
    and cross the small gaps. The path will turn right and to the left, 
    down a hill, you'll see a ship. Clank is in it and that is where your 
    adventure will begin!
    Level 1 - Planet Novalis
    Mission 1
    This mission, unlike the other one, involves very little platform 
    jumping. It is mainly destroying enemies. I suggest you get the "fire" 
    weapon before attempting this. Start off by going onto the moving 
    platform. This will take you to the bottom. Run here until you get to 
    the steps. You will have to destroy many enemies along the way. Go up 
    the steps and onto the broken bridge. Cross it by destroying the three 
    enemies. When you are done, go to the left in the tunnel and you will 
    be on a long path. Destroy the enemies here and you should make it to 
    the other side, where an infobot awaits.
    Mission 2
    This mission involves a lot of platform jumping. It is a very good 
    mission to introduce the game to you. To start, go to the right from 
    the beginning. Then, you will see many raised platforms. Start jumping 
    on them to get the other side. If you fall off, you'll have to start 
    over. (The current is very strong.) When you get to the other side, you 
    will see many block of land. To get between them, go in the water and 
    up the stairs. At the other side jump on the thing that makes you go 
    up, get to the end, and you will see your infobot. 
    Mission 3
    Buy the infobot. It is very cheap and it let you go to level 3. 
    Congratulations! You finished the level.
    Level 2 - Planet Aridia!
    Mission 1
    Just start walking behind the ship to find this guy. He is very easy to 
    locate. Use your map if you need to.
    Mission 2
    Run around this area, killing the red sharks. If you kill them all, you 
    get a hoverboard. Remember that you have to destroy the big ones in 
    order for this to matter. (They make more of the sharks.)
    Mission 4
    Go to the left and across the gaps to start this mission. Go forward 
    until the end, where you can get a life and go the right. Cross this 
    gap and destroy the enemies that await you. Go to the right and ride 
    the elevator. Make your way to this area:
    Go forward and not to the left. Turn around at the end to see a little 
    thing you can go up. Jump onto this and jump up. Then, you have to go 
    under a small tunnel. Do this and get to the end. Once you are there, 
    go right and jump onto this again. While hanging on go to the right and 
    jump up at the end. Go forward and up to make it to green land. Go 
    around the swamp to find the guy you are looking for.
    Mission 5
    To complete this, you must complete the hoverboard race on Plabet 
    Rilgar. This isn't soon, so don't worry about it. The description for 
    this will be in the respected planet. Come back and get the Sonic 
    Level 3! - Planet Kerwan 
    Mission 1
    This level has many missions. The first one is pretty straight forward. 
    From the start, go forward and walk into the area where an enemy is 
    located. Kill him and go to the left. Walk along here, killing the 
    enemies on the way. The mission is over when you get to a guy's hut and 
    you can buy stuff there. (Well, one thing, actually.)
    Mission 2
    This is a very straight-forward mission. Start it by buying a heli-
    pack. Your done! That's it! It costs very little and is required to do 
    the rest of the missions.
    Mission 3
    Go to the train. (He is right after Mission 1 and 2. You'll have to use 
    the heli-pack to jump onto the platforms and then glide across. Then, 
    take the elevator up and glide to the other side. Continue on.) Jump on 
    the train and try to get to the end for something special.  You will 
    need to destroy the enemies on the way. An infobot! Yahoo! 
    Mission 4
    This is a very fun mission. Go to the right from the start of the 
    level. You will see the captain and Clank thinking he is real. Anyway, 
    go to the left and jump up and wall jump to the top. Then, go to the 
    left and wall jump some more. Keep going on, jumping when you need to 
    and you will eventually be at the end. Congratulations! You made it!
    Mission 5
    Buy the Swingshot. If you don't have enough, go to another 
    BOLTS. When you have enough, buy it and explore this area for a ton of 
    bolts. (You need the swingshot.)
    Level 4 - Planet Eudora
    Mission 1
    Go to the left from the start and use the trespasser. Go through this 
    and go to the left. Use the slingshot to cross this gap. Then, just 
    jump onto the platform to the left. Then, jump onto the far away 
    platform. (First use your wrench to turn the screw.) Then, turn another 
    one and jump onto the platforms to get to the other side. Once you have 
    made it here you are done! An infobot for Level 5!
    Mission 2
    Go to the upper left from the start. Then, use your wrench to make the 
    bridge go up. When it is up, you can cross it. Here, do that again so 
    that you can cross again. Keep killing enemies and go up. Use the 
    wrench again so that a platform comes down. Jump onto it and cross the 
    gap. Once you are there, keep going. You will get a suck cannon. It is 
    not THAT useful, but it is a nice thing to have. 
    Level 5 - The Space Station
    Mission 1, 3, and 5
    This is a very easy mission. It will get you the infobot to Planet 
    Rilgar. First, go to the left and you will see two doors. Use the right 
    one and get in the ship. It will take you to a planet. Once you are 
    there, you can go through the level, destroying enemies and getting 
    bolts. You will get to a room where you are higher than the enemies. 
    Use the Blaster to destroy the enemies. Once they are all gone, you can 
    go where they were. You didn't get hurt! Anyway, keep going and you'll 
    put the ship into self-destruct mode. Run, dodging the enemies, the way 
    you came in. You have 45 seconds but it isn't that hard. When your out, 
    you get an infobot.
    Mission 2
    Got through the left door this time. This is easily the most difficult 
    mission on this planet. (Or Station.) Anyway, go forward and jump over 
    the two fire things. Go through the door and turn on your 
    procrastinator or just use a wrench. (Whichever you prefer.) Destroy 
    the many enemies here, destroy the big ones in the next room, and 
    destroy the few in the next hall. If you are still alive, pick up the 
    live and go forward into the next door. Break all these boxes for bolt 
    and ammo. Then, turn around and go to your right. (It was you left 
    before.) You will be in a big room. Go to the left and jump up the 
    stairs. Get to the top and get the two life. Now, slingshot to the 
    other side and destroy the enemies here. Get in the next room, destroy 
    the enemies, and go into the hall. In the hall, you need to use the 
    Taunter to get the enemies to come near you, so you can kill them. 
    Cross the hall an you will be in a room with a Gadgetron.
    You should stock up on ammo, and then use the Blaster to destroy the 
    enemies in this room. Get the health, and go on. Use the Blaster to 
    destroy the first two enemies. Now, if you start destroying enemies 
    from far away, you can destroy all the enemies without getting hurt. 
    When you are on one platform, destroy the enemies on another. Do this 
    around the circle and shoot the thing to make the electricity go down. 
    I recommend you go back and stock up on Blaster ammo. Then, enter the 
    door for your first BOSS BATTLE! 
    Use the blaster and get out of the way, then shoot him from a side. He 
    will turn, but you can turn too! He is pretty easy. Once he is dead, 
    get the health and move on to the next room, where you can get Grind 
    Boots. For a price. Buy them and grind your way back to the start. (It 
    is pretty straight forward. You don't even have to jump unless you want 
    a few extra bolts.)
    Mission 5
    This is the final mission and it is a Clank mission. Go the other way 
    you usually go for the other missions. Use the trespasser to walk 
    trough the door, go down the elevator, and then into a Clank level. 
    Clank is ready for some action! Go forward to start the level. Walk 
    carefully on the path to make into another area. Go to the right and 
    then glide to the other side. Go to the left and go up on the right. 
    There is another difficult path here, so be careful. Then, go around 
    the bend to get five helpers. Order them using the triangle button. 
    First, order them to follow you. Then, order them to attack the 
    enemies. Then, order them all to get into a cage thing. (You need all 
    five. If one died, go back and get him.) Move on to get a special new 
    weapon for Clank!
    Level 6 - Planet Rilgar
    Mission 1
    You have to win the hoverboard race.  Go to the right from the start 
    and jump onto the platforms to get to the other side. Cross the gap and 
    keep going. I highly recommend you use the Blaster through these 
    sections. Keep going, using your Blaster, until you get to a big area. 
    To the left, is a ship. It will take you downtown. Get off the ship. 
    Then, buy some ammo and use the blaster to kill everything you see. You 
    can buy a R.Y.N.O for 150,000 bolts. I'm not even close so I'm not sure 
    what it does. (Maybe you get it at the end of the game.) Press the 
    button at the end and destroy the two enemies to move on.
    Here, you will see a big circle. Shoot the enemies at the bottom and 
    the come down to let the rest of them out. (The button.) If you run in 
    circles shooting, you can kill them all. Move on and you'll be in a 
    maze. Follow the most straight-forward path and you'll be out. You can 
    go back in for a golden bolt, if you want. Go up the chute and shoot 
    the enemy. Go to the left and shoot the enemy there. Then, follow the 
    path to make it outside. Start the race!
    This is actually pretty hard. The trick is to try to stay in control 
    and get as many power up as humanly possible. Keep trying. When you 
    win, get the thing and bring it back to Level 2 for a Sonic Summoner 
    Helmet. Yahoo!
    Mission 2 
    This is a very hard mission. You will need to be patient and quick. 
    From the start, take the path that leads to a bunch of sling shot 
    targets. Use you slingshot and get to the other side. Use you Water 
    thing (Hydro something) to make the water level sink so you can cross. 
    Keep going and you need to use you slingshot and rise the water level. 
    When you get a place where you need to sink the water level to get unto 
    a tunnel. DON'T DO IT. Just swim into the tunnel and come up at the 
    other side of it. Go through the door and go down the chute. Press the 
    button to start a very difficult race.
    You have time to rest. This is an all-out race against the water. Equip 
    the pyrocitor and run like made. When you see a couple enemies, shoot 
    them so you don't waste time. Jump on the platforms to get to the other 
    side. The water shouldn't be too high if you are doing this right. Go 
    under the water and too the other side. If four of the ledges are over 
    the water, you'll be fine. Destroy this enemy and run across the 
    platforms and too the other side for the final dive. When I did this, I 
    just BARELY made it. Go really fast through the water. When you get to 
    the other side, you will see the captain.
    Mission 3
    You must pay 4,000 bolts to see the captain. Once you do, you can see 
    the captain and get an infobot. Congratulations! (I find it a bit weird 
    that all he makes is 6 bolts/hour.)
    Level 7 - Planet Umbris
    Mission 1
    Start by going forward and swing-shooting into the main part of the 
    level. Then, go forward and use your Blaster to destroy the pod things. 
    Go to the right, cross the bridge, and use your Blaster again. Then, 
    destroy the two small round things using your blaster and move on. Jump 
    up the stairs and destroy another  small round thing. At the top is a 
    bridge. Shoot all the round things and cross the bridge. You will see 
    two pod things. Destroy them and go up the stairs. Destroy to small 
    circular objects and destroy a bunch more of them on the bridge. Cross 
    the bridge.
    "Grecs" = Green circular things that make doors open
    Now, step on all three circular things to open a door. From now on, I 
    will refer to them as "Grecs." Kill all the pods in this room and then 
    step on all the grecs. Go to the right and cross both bridges and you 
    will be in a place with plenty of fences. Go through this area by going 
    left and right. Then, cross a gap using the swingshot. There are three 
    grecs in this field. Run quickly to the left and then to the right to 
    pick them all up in time. Go through the door. Destroy the black bots 
    and easily get the grecs here and go up the ladder.
    At the top, is a lot of water. Lower the water level, destroy the fish, 
    and move into the next room. Here, destroy another fish and go up the 
    steps. Lower the water level, destroy the fish, and raise the water 
    level again. Lower the water level on the final one and destroy the 
    fish. Raise the water here and swim under a wall to get onto land. You 
    will be on a long path. Lower the water level and use the swingshot to 
    cross. Then, you will be in a large room. Lower the water level and 
    destroy the fish. Then, raise the water level and get the grecs in the 
    center. Lower the water level once more to be able to move on. (Use the 
    stairs at the other end.) Walk on this path until you get to the pit. 
    Fall in for Mission 2... A BOSS BATTLE!
    Mission 2
    This is, as you probably guessed, a boss battle. (Maybe it's because I 
    said it in Mission 1.) He is very easy. I recommend shooting him with 
    the Blaster, avoiding his attacks. Then, he will start to follow you 
    and you need to cross a bridge, that he will fall through, leaving 
    platforms. Keep doing this and you will beat him. Watch out for the 
    tornado as that takes all your ammo and scatters it. When you beat him, 
    you will get an infobot.
    Level 8 - Planet Batalia
    Mission 1
    This mission is completed automatically. As soon as you arrive, the guy 
    greats you.
    Mission 2
    Go forward from the start. Make your way to the rail. Once you are 
    there, you are done and ready for Mission 3. (These first two are 
    really easy.)
    Mission 3
    This isn't a hundred percent straight-forward mission. Grinding is very 
    easy, but the track you are grinding on can confuse you. See, it will 
    keep you going in circles so you always have to jump onto a new rail. 
    Basically, do this until you get to the end. (There are a few black 
    things you need to jump over on the way.) You are done with the 
    Mission 4
    This is a very hard mission. Okay, I was kidding. It is actually a very 
    easy mission. Basically, just buy the infobot for 2000 bolts and then 
    start singing.
    Mission 5
    From the start of the level, go forward. Destroy the enemies in the air 
    as you make your way forward. I highly recommend buying a Devastator. 
    Without it, this mission is nearly impossible. Destroy the enemies 
    under the bridge and then use your wrench to make the bridge come up. 
    Then, go back up and a tank will appear. Use the devastator to destroy 
    it. It is the only way. Then, continue on. I don't recommend actually 
    fighting the enemies here. Just run like mad across the field to get to 
    the grass path which will take you up to the top. Cross the bridges 
    here to be done. (And get an infobot.)
    Mission 6
    You need the Magnet Boots for this mission. Go to where you left off in 
    Mission 5. Use your magnet boots to walk on the path and get to a new 
    area. Go forward, killing the enemies, until you get to a big missle-
    launcher. Get ready for Mission 7.
    Mission 7
    Yes, this is the last mission. Climb in the shooter and start shooting 
    the big ships everywhere. This is pretty hard, and you only have one 
    minute. (I timed it.) When you do it, you get a hard-earned Metal 
    Level 9 - Planet Gasper
    Mission 1
    To start this mission, go forward onto the platform and ride down to 
    the main part of the level. When you get there, cross over to the 
    missile launcher thing and turn to shoot the wall. After you have shot 
    the wall, go through the wall. I highly recommend you use the Walloper 
    (which you can bye at the start of this level) to destroy the enemies 
    flying around this area. Get the health near the start of the path and 
    continue on to the left. Kill the enemies and jump over the gap. Go to 
    the end of this circular area and start jumping across the platforms. 
    Get to the end of this path, and shoot a rocket at the door you passed 
    earlier. Go back down and go into the door.
    Here, you will enter a room. Get the health, and walk into the 
    elevator. Continue on and a bunch of enemies will jump out of cars and 
    start shooting at you. Use the devastator/walloper and try to get past 
    this as quickly as possible, don't worry about killing them. Then, run 
    as quickly as possible into the cannon and kill all the enemies here. 
    Once you have done this, continue on for your reward... The Pilot's 
    Helmet! (This is necessary to get the O2 Mask, which you need to 
    explore Level 10 as Ratchet.)
    Level 10 - Planet Orxon
    Mission 1
    Clank has to do this mission and the next. See, you can't breath air on 
    Orxon. Go through the door-entrance thing. Get the three bots in this 
    area and enter them into warps to make them go up the ledges. Then, 
    enter them into the port to get open the door. Free the two bots here. 
    They can't follow you up the ledge. Instead, you go up and stand on the 
    thing that makes the door go down. Command the bots to follow you and 
    you got past the spot. Do the same thing for the bot in this room. With 
    all four following you, go up and free another one. 
    Go onto the thing that is going up and down and free the last one. Put 
    all of the bots through the lock and continue on. Walk until you get 
    your prize. The extremely hard-earned... Magna boots!
    Mission 2
    You are left on a bridge after Mission 1. Go to the right and enter a 
    forest. There are five bots here. Go to all the corners and get them. 
    Then, enter a little maze. There is fire in this maze, so beware. Start 
    by turning to the right from the start. Right after the fire passes, 
    cross this are and continue on. Keep going on the path, dodging the 
    fire. Make it to the end and you will almost be there!
    Cross the bridge and you will see a transport at the end. Send all your 
    bots through there. Continue on. There are a lot of bots here. (Ten, to 
    be exact.) Find them all and attack the enemies. Make sure you have all 
    ten, and make them enter. The door should open. Get the infobot here 
    and dance. (You should still be singing since Level 8, Mission 4.)
    Mission 3
    Do this after getting the O2 mask in Level 11. Jump over the major gap 
    and continue on. (Jump from a platform.) Break the locks and destroy 
    the enemies. You will get to a fork in the road. ("I took the one less 
    traveled by, and that made all the difference...")
    Mission 4 
    Take the right road for this one. Kill the enemy and then don't kill or 
    touch the sleeping ones. Jump up onto the platform and continue on and 
    use the magna boots. Walk along the path, killing the enemies on the 
    way. At the end, jump off and get the health. Use the swingshot to 
    continue. The infobot will continue to run. Cross this gap using the 
    swingshot and try not to disturb the enemies as you walk. Jump onto the 
    path at the end.
    This part is really hard. Hit the locks so that the door can open. 
    However, when you hit the second one, the enemies always go after you. 
    Try to kill them, or dodge them. Then, continue on. (If you haven't 
    died.) Continue on for an infobot.
    Mission 5
    Take the left road. Go on and destroy the enemies. Turn right, jump, 
    and continue on. Go through these doors and kill the enemy at the end. 
    Then, turn to the left and use the blaster to take care of the enemies. 
    Then, use the Devastator to destroy the ships and continue on. The two 
    ships will take four hits. Jump across the platforms and sneak across 
    the crabs. Start jumping on the platforms. You HAVE to shoot the next 
    crabs. I suggest using the Glove of Doom to take care of the many crabs 
    here. Then, jump to where the crabs used to be and open the door, but 
    don't walk through.
    Here, there is a gap. Use the Devastator to kill the crabs on the other 
    end. Then, jump across and continue on. Jump across three platforms and 
    then walk through a small area, killing the enemies. Then, jump across 
    the platforms to get to a building. It has Nanotech in it! Buy the 
    Nanotech to get more health. (For 4000 bolts get to 5, for 30000 bolts 
    get to 8.)
    Level 11 - Planet Pokitaru
    Mission 1 
    To start, talk to the guy at the beginning. He will make you kill a 
    bunch of sharks. Kill them all and you will be done! Easier said than 
    done, though. Use the suck cannon to suck up the enemies and then shoot 
    them out. You will eventually get onto a boat. Get rid of all the 
    enemies here, and you will go up. Then, keep going, killing more and 
    more enemies. You will be in a pond area. Kill the enemies here and 
    start Mission 2.
    Mission 2 
    Using the Pilot's Mask from Level 9, talk to the guy. (Technically you 
    use the mask in Mission 3.) Well, just go there then.
    Mission 3
    There we go. Start flying planes! Yahoo! Okay, get in the ship and 
    shoot down Blargs Ships. You can get more missle by shooting the things 
    that give you more ammo. (You have to shoot them anyway.) After 
    shooting for a while, you are done and you have to 02 mask. On the 
    Mission 4. (If you want to.)
    Mission 4
    From the start, go on the warp pad. This will take you to the place you 
    need to be for Mission 5.
    Mission 5
    Use the Hydro Displacer on the water here. Then, use the trespasser to 
    open the door. Then, use the hydro displacer to bring the water back 
    and swim through the door. Get on land, kill the enemies, got to the 
    top of the area, and then use your trespasser to open the door again. 
    Go through the underwater tunnel. Kill the enemies here and use the 
    trespasser one last time. Here, you can trade Raritanium for a 
    Level 12 - Planet Hoven
    Mission 1
    Go forward as fast as you can. Then, when you reach the end, cross the 
    bridge on the left. Keep going forward, killing the enemies. At the end 
    of the path, blast the ship-thing. Wall jump up and keep going forward, 
    killing the enemies. When you get to the enemies, step into a missle 
    launcher, and destroy everything you see. (This is easy.) When you are 
    done, get your infobot.
    Mission 2
    Go forward from Mission 2, jumping over the gaps. You will be on ice. 
    No! get the three grecs (see Level 7 for what they are.) To get two of 
    the grecs, you might need to use the swingshot. This will open a 
    building. Go into the building. Hit the three grecs here by wall-
    jumping. Keep going to be in the ice. Use the swingshot to go above the 
    Here, jump across the small, icy platforms. Make your way across, get 
    the grecs, and enter a building. Here, you can get the Raritanium. You 
    are done with this mission!
    Mission 3
    Follow the path until you get to Ed. Buy the Hydro Pack from him. (it 
    will cost 2000 bolts.)
    Level 13 - Orbit Otlantis 
    Mission 1
    Go forward and cross the gap. Keep going forward and kill the enemies. 
    Then, go up the stairs. Shoot the control tower using the Devastator. 
    Then, go through the path opened up. Kill the enemies here and shoot 
    the control tower. Go through the path again. Go to the right quickly 
    once you are here. Go behind the shooting thing and go all the way to 
    the right. Kill the enemies here and move on. (By going to the left.)
    Here, you have two choices. Do which ever you prefer. You can either go 
    quickly to the left and destroy the enemies here. Then, sneak behind 
    the enemy into the next room. Your second option is to go to the right, 
    really quickly, and entering the next room that way. Here, kill the 
    enemies and go to the right.
    Use the drone device and cross this room as quickly as possible. 
    Continue here and go forward until you get to a place where you can use 
    your trespasser. Use it to open the door, walk in, and kill all the 
    enemies here. Then, exit and walk down this path and turn to the right. 
    Destroy the enemies here and continue on. Eventually, you will be at a 
    part with a bunch of missiles shooting at you. Cross quickly using the 
    drone device and get on the platform.
    You will be in a room's ceiling. Fall off and run to a small ledge. No 
    enemies can touch you here. (Actually, about two or three might, I'm 
    not sure how.) Use your blaster to destroy all the enemies and they 
    boxes they come from. This will open an elevator. Get ready to battle!
    Mission 2
    This is pretty easy. Just shoot the Captain over and over again. Try to 
    conserve your missiles until the end of the battle. When you destroy 
    him, you will get a new ship and an infobot. Yahoo!
    Level 14 - Planet Otlantis
    Mission 1
    Go onto a platform that will take you to a big square. Go forward and 
    onto the path. Here, kill all the enemies on the way. There are a lot 
    of robots in the air. Keep going and you will reach three rails. What 
    follows is really fun. Jump on a rail and start running (or grinding) 
    away from the robots. Dodge the obstacles by jumping from rail to rail. 
    Eventually, you'll get to the end, and be on land once again.
    Mission 2
    Buy the infobot for 2000 bolts. I'd say more, but I don't really need 
    to do that.
    Mission 3
    Take a taxi to the "upper city" to do this mission. Then, continue on 
    the path, destroying all the enemies and missile launchers. Use your 
    swingshot and then keep doing that. Just swinsghoot onto the platforms 
    and destroy the enemies. It is pretty straight-forward. You will get a 
    Mission 4
    Use your magnet boots to go on the magnet path. Keep going, dodging the 
    black balls, until you reach the end. Continue on, in the ice. You'll 
    have to try to avoid slipping off, as you try to get to the end. Get up 
    the tall ledge and continue to the end on a path. Talk to "Steve" to 
    get the Gadgetron PDA.
    Level 15 - Planet Quartu
    Mission 1 & 2
    Go forward and go to the left. Cross this area with your swingshot. 
    Then, go around the walkway. Don't kill the enemies. Try to cross as 
    quickly as possible. (Using R1.) Then, at the end, talk the professor 
    and he will let Clank become big. Once he is big, make your way back to 
    the start of the circle. Enter the arena. Shoot all the enemies here. 
    (Standing in one place is basically your best tactic.) When you are 
    done, you will get a little treat. (And infobot to Level 18.)
    Mission 3
    From the start, climb the ladder on the left. You will have to go 
    underwater and use your hydropack to get the rings. (Press R1.) Then, 
    go to the center platform and turn off the electricity. Be careful 
    though, this will only last for one minute. As soon as you turn it off, 
    go quickly through all the rings, opening doors, and doing it again. 
    Eventually, you will come out and get a bolt grabber. This allows you 
    to get bolts that are far away.
    Mission 4
    You need the hologuise for this. Go forward from the start until you 
    get to a metal door. Use the hologuise and then wave to the robot. He 
    will let you in. Undo the hologuise and jump up on the left side. Keep 
    going forward, jump across the lava into the center, and jump to the 
    other side. Get the health here (left hand side) and go to the right 
    from there, jumping onto the platform. Keep going forward, killing 
    enemies, using the drone device, and climbing ladders, until you get to 
    another gate.
    Use the hologuise to wave once again. Go in, and climb the ladder. 
    Continue on, blowing up the enemies. Kill the robot in the next room 
    and move on. Blow up the three robots on the other side, and swingshoot 
    over there. Butt stomp the switch (jump, rocket and then square), wear 
    your hologuise, and wave in the next room to trick the robot. Continue 
    and get an infobot.
    Level 16 - Planet Kalebo III
    Mission 1
    Go forward from the start. When you get to the building, hit the switch 
    to get inside. Go to the right and go onto the path. Kill the enemies 
    and continue on. Go to the left and enter the room. Kill all the 
    enemies here and continue on. (You can't move on until they all are 
    gone.) Go forward and ride the elevator up. Destroy the enemies and 
    turn to the left. Hit the switch with the blaster. Then, go up the 
    stairs and go into the room.
    Continue on and fight those enemies again. Then, use your devastator 
    (or something else, but not the blaster) to hit the switch far away. 
    Swinghoot your way there and get on the rail. It will end soon and 
    you'll be on a platform. Go through the door and you'll be stuck in a 
    room with those enemies again, who will now try to burn you.
    Kill them all and move on. Continue and kill all the enemies that you 
    see. Keep going and you will be in an area with a bunch of those 
    enemies, but they will be outside this time. Kill them and enter the 
    building. Hit the switch so you can get here easily. Then, go to 
    forward (not through the door you hit the switch for) and you will see 
    Mission 2
    You must win the race to get the hologuise. Talk to the guy and he will 
    let you enter. There are a few strategies to keep in mind. Always hit 
    the boosts and try to keep a bunch of missiles handy for shooting 
    people. Once you win, you get the hologuise. Yahoo!
    Mission 3
    From the entrance of the building, go the opposite way you went last 
    time (this is to the right if you are coming from Mission 2.) You will 
    be able to grind a rail. There are three rails here. You must jump from 
    rail to rail every time you see an obstacle. Keep doing this until you 
    get to the end. Here, you can do Mission 4.
    Mission 4
    Just talk to the Help Desk lady and you will get a map-o-matic. This 
    shows the secret areas in levels.
    Level 17 - Veldin's Orbit
    Mission 1
    Go into the water and dive down. You will see three rings in the water. 
    Use the Underwater Rocket Pack (R1) to get the three rings here and 
    open the door. The game gives you a LOT of time to collect the rings. 
    You could completely mess up and still get all of them. Anyway, as soon 
    as you have all three, go through the door.
    Go to the top of the water here and you will see a switch. Run towards 
    the switch and then run over it to activate it. It will make it so that 
    you can swim in the water without electrocuting yourself. This is 
    helpful because, now, you will no longer die. Not dying is good, as the 
    only way to beat this is to stay alive.
    Okay, now that you have the alive thing down, your goal is to get to 
    the end of this long path underwater. There are many spikes on the way. 
    Dodge them. (As in, don't hit them.) They will remove one health point. 
    There are rays that move around in a circle. Avoid them by waiting 
    until the clearing comes by you (the hole) and then dash through.
    If you hit the spinning things, you will lose one health point too. As 
    a matter of fact, if you hit anything here you will lose one health 
    point. The last thing that can hit you are the rays going up and down. 
    The only thing you really have to worry about are the spinning things, 
    though, and use the above method of dealing with them.
    Remember that you have 1:20 to complete this course. When you get to 
    the end, hopefully without dying, get the Codebot. After you have it, 
    get out of here using the door, which will open into a ship. Ride the 
    ship back to the start. You can return here whenever you want.
    Mission 2
    Go forward from the start so that you can get to the first "ship". Go 
    forward, killing the enemies on the way. You'll want to use the 
    hologuise regularly to trick the robots. Keep going, killing enemies, 
    until you can warp to the next ship. Kill the dogs on the other side, 
    and then swinghoot over the disgusting junk. Continue on and kill the 
    enemies in the next room. Now, you can go to the final ship... Drek's!
    Ride the elevator's up and hop into the ship. Start shooting like mad. 
    You'll have to aim well and don't forget to recharge the missiles. This 
    is pretty hard, but it is doable. Go back to the bridge and cross it. 
    Then, take out your magnet boots (well, it is automatic) and start 
    heading up. Keep going, up some elevator's, around some obstacles, and 
    you will eventually get your infobot.

    **                       -Drek-                                      **
    Make your way to the transformation pad. (Just a bit of hydro displacer 
    work) and make Clank huge and mean. Make your way to Drek's arena to 
    fight him. He'll use a shrinking ray, but you should have a R.Y.N.O (If 
    you don't, get one.) Use your R.Y.N.O on him. He'll use a shrinking 
    ray, but you should have a R.Y.N.O (If you don't, get one.) Use your 
    R.Y.N.O on him. You'll have to chase him quite a bit, using gadgets 
    such as the swingshot. He'll hit a switch and you have 30 seconds to 
    butt stomp the big thing in the center. You'll then have a bunch of 
    enemies to kill. Drek keeps getting madder and you don't like that. 
    (You won't.) He'll shoot all kinds of missiles at you. When you finally 
    do kill him, you can sing, dance, and party, all at the same time. Yep.

    2. What are most of them?
    3. How do you save?
        Hey, it was asked. Anyway, the game automatically saves, but you 
    can make it save by going to options and then save.
