    III.  GOLDEN BOLTS GUIDE (by planet)
    Only 1 bolt here.  After getting through the factory, and it now being 
    operational, the area outside will now have a lot of rotating platforms
    so go past the smuggler, past the ship, Up to the platform to the left
    of the cave entrance, opposite the platform with the armor vendor.
    You will see rotating platforms, follow these around the map, pick up
    the raritanium on the way if you want, but if you stick the the platforms
    they will circle around to the factory exit, and your golden bolt will be
    on the platform overlooking the ship attached to the factory
    An easier way to get up to this platform is to jump off of the elevator
    on its way down, or up since you can go back to it... before the glass 
    cuts you off.  The elevator is found after getting through the factory, at
    the end, or past the devices guy from the ship if you are returning to the
    planet. NOTE: you can only make the elevator go back up, if you just got off
    of it going down.
    In the HUGE circular room with gigantic jelly fish platform things, turn
    the bolt at the center of the room to get the jelly fishes to surface, 
    look to where you would normally exit the room, the to the left of the 
    exit you will see another cut away in the wall, use the gelenator on the 
    closest jelly fish to this second platform, three layers is always a safe
    bet.  Double jump, and glide to the newly created gel pad, use it to jump
    up to this second platform, and the first bolt is up there.
    The second bolt: Take off from any of the robo wing launch pads, then hit
    select and look for a large circular path on the map, it's in the middle of
    the map with launch pad icons on the map at either end of the circle.  The
    higher landing is where the golden bolt can be found, but you can land any-
    where on the circle and fight your way around to it.
    c)Voron Asteroid Belt
    Oh fun, these are the hardest ones to get in my opinion.  You will have to
    shoot down multicolored targets while fighting of Slag's minions.  I would
    reccomend coming back to these after a play through and ignoring the enemies
    completely, while focusing solely on the "bonus targets". at the end of the 
    level it will tell you how many you hit out of the total number.  Things to
    listen/look for while the targets show up
    1."Looks like these lads want to..."
    2."I don't think this ones going to coorperate captain" 
    3.in the asteroid belt RIGHT after going through a nanotech health ring
    4.down and to the right when you are clank manning the touret, just ignore
    the bad guys and wait for the target
    5."we have a team building excersize" it will be down and right in the
    large asteroid.
    5/5 will get you the golden bolt.
    The First Bolt - You have to return to Mukow after getting the decryptor
    from planet Sagrasso from the smuggler before you fight all the dinosaurs.
    In the first courtyard, to the right there is a force field that can be taken 
    down using the decryptor, then hop up the newly opened path to find a golden
    The Second Bolt - After you get the statue pieces, and get past the ferris 
    wheel and the first set of sling shot spinning carts, you will come to an open 
    area with a bonus "?" box as you enter it.  Stay to the left, near the edge 
    overlooking the water, follow the ledge to where a rock wall comes down and 
    ALMOST blocks your path, you will see raritanium chests on the other side of
    this wall so double jump around the wall, and the golden bolt is right in 
    front of you
    The Third Bolt - After you take the elevator up to where to CLAPPER robots 
    break through glass and try to Squish you, you will have to use a jump pad to
    launch ratchet to the next area, a circular path around a fountain.  From here
    you will go to the opening where you will see a long zip line.  Don't use the 
    zipline just yet, step out to the ledge under the zipline, and look left. You
    will see a path with flame throwing statues, double jump and glide down to
    this path.  At the end of it is the golden bolt.
    The Fourth Bolt - You will need to return with Clank's geo laser to get to
    this bolt. This time take the zipline down.  FIght your way around the
    fountain, kill off the enemies coming down the stairs, and then notice the two
    soldiers firing at you from a ledge across the open area.  Kill these guys off
    then walk up to the ledge they were on, Clanks green geo sensing thing will go
    off and point you towards a "weak wall" to the left of the ledge, use your 
    spiffy 6 axis control to cut the wall down, and you will find your final
    bolt on this world
    e)Nundac Asteroid Ring
    One Bolt here: Use the teleporter and go to the beta teleporter.  From here,
    follow the bath until you see a swing shot off to the left, kill all the small
    enemies around you first, then swing shot 3 times to a distant rock all by 
    itself.  The golden bolt is on this rock.
    The First Bolt - From the ship, take the rocky path to the left, before you
    ever get to the devices vendor, you will see a helipod target at the end of
    this path to raise a grind rail, raise the rail follow it to a small island
    Use the helipods to raise the platforms to get to the next landing.  Raise
    the door with the helipod, kill the hungry pirates, raise the ship with 
    helipods, then the door which will let a fan blow the ship out to sea, use
    the slingshots to the left to get to the next landing, break the raritanium
    crates, and double jump and glide to the land down and to your left.  Use 
    the next set of slingshots to the left on this island to get to the next
    landing.  Here you will use helipods to lift a counter weight out to the right
    which will lower a HUGE platform, get on the platform, and stay there until
    the helipods break away from the counter weight, which will then lift the 
    platform back up, jump off to your right, and you will find a golden bolt
    The second Bolt - you must return to Ardolis after getting the holo pirate
    disguise from Captain Quark in the second trip to the arena.  From the ship
    use the teleporter and back track. The hallway leading back to the control
    center will have a pirate door you can dance to open on your right going
    backwards through the level, or your left going forwards.  Dance your jig
    and the golden bolt is behind the door.
    The Third Bolt - Work your way back further through the stage backwards.
    Get to the room with two levels of pirates, some on the ground level, and
    then you will see some more above you on cross walks, in a large cavern 
    area.  Follow the wall around to the left backwards(or right if you're going 
    through it forward) until you get to the pirate wall, dance your jig again, 
    take the elevator up to that second level I mentioned earlier, take the 
    walkways straight first, then take it right when it branches off to an 
    opening across the way where the golden bolt is found.
    g)Rakar Star Cluster
    This is another space shoot em up level.  Find the 5 bonus targets for the 
    golden bolt, listen/look for the following to know where the targets are
    1."hop on that Turret" aim at the horizon of the planet
    2. as clank is on the turret still, it will be up and left after a while
    with no enemies
    3. Right after a nano tech health ring, the screen will turn hard to the
    right, you will have a short time to aim down and left, where the target
    will be
    4. right half of the screen as you approach the sun, almost next to the sun
    5. shoot through the canopies that are hilited in blue to get your ship
    through, but shoot at one that is down and right with no hilited pieces, the
    fifth target is under this canopy.
    5/5 bonus targets gets you the golden bolt.
    h)Rykan V
    The First Bolt - 
    Where your ship lands when returning to the planet, or from where you talk 
    to the smuggler, follow the ledge overlooking the lava to a Big box where
    it runs into the cliffs, R2 jump to the box then jump to the cylindrical
    structure under the lava pipes - Ratchet should hold on by his hands, then go
    hand over hand to the left, around the structure to a bridge over a lava river
    hold back and jump down to the bridge, cross it to another strucure with lava
    pipes, walk around this one to a whole new area.  Walk to the back left corner
    of this area to a grav ramp. Jump down to the platform with the zipline, don't
    use the zipline though.  Double jump and glide to the roof of the building in 
    front of you if you're looking down the zip line.  On the right half of this 
    roof, manipulate the camera to look down under ratchets feet on the side facing
    the lava lake.  You can jump down to a hidden room under this roof.  The golden
    bolt is found here.
    The Second Bolt - Take the gyro cycle to where it lands on an island.  Look to
    your left to see a small ledge, jump up to this platform, and walk around the 
    rock wall, until you stumble into some bushes over looking the lava, the golden
    bolt is in these bushes.
    The first bolt - 
    After you get through the Gelatonium plant, you will be overlooking a whole 
    new area of this world, don't jump down just yet.  Look at the orange and grey
    industrial platform down and to the left.  You can jump to the land and walk
    over to this platform, work your way around to the back corner to find the
    golden bolt, or from the platform at the end of the gelatonium plant itself you
    can glide down to the bolt directly.
    The Second Bolt - From the ship landing, go to the robo wing launcher, follow
    the Zoni rings until you come out of the cave and there is a large dinosaur 
    directly to your right next to a building with flying insects on the building.
    Collapse the wings, and go to the feet of the dinosaur, he will lift one foot
    at a time, two of which are hiding red circular buttons.  Time it right, and
    step on these two buttons, then the third is out in the open, with all three
    depressed, a door in the mountain wall will open.  The golden bolt is in here
    The Third Bolt - From the ships landing, go to the Robo Wing launch pad, fly
    straight ahead, on the map, the area you are looking for is for platforms all
    by themselves in the water half way up the map on the right, land here.  Fight
    off the working robots, and in the middle of the lowest square platform,
    top left on the map, you will find the golden bolt
    The Fourth bolt - From the ship landing, go to the robo wing launcher, hit
    select to bring up the map, fly to the bottom left cluster of islands on the
    map, and look for the LARGE dinosaur, same size as the second bolt dinosaur -
    it will be near water between two outcrops of land after the large Gel tower
    in the middle of these islands.  Collapse the wings over the dinosaur and glide
    down to its back.  The golden bolt is on its back.
    j)Kreeli Comet
    Mid way through the level there will be a grav ramp that will twist right,
    and you will be walking under HUGE cannons that arbitrarily open up and fire.
    As you approach this grav ramp from the previous room, you will be staring
    at a black net, on the other side of the net you will see some icy platforms
    and sling shot points.  These are used to get to a holo plan piece, you will
    have to double jump out of the room, NOT following the grav ramp! But rather,
    gliding down and to your left to a chunk of land.  Keep turning back towards
    the building/ship you just jumped out of and you will see a pirate door.
    Equip the pirate disguise, dance your jig, and the golden bolt is behind the
    The First Bolt - From the ship landing head left, raise a platform with you
    on it using a heli-pod, then repeat this action on a diagnally moving platform
    next.  Then shoot the attached helipod on the next platform so it falls down 
    to you, jump on, attach your own helipod, then ride it up.  Open the large
    door with a helipod to get to the next room.  Jump down and kill the bots in
    this room.  Now attach helipods to the pieces of bridge that are hanging down
    facing each other - not the door on the left wall, that's another adventure.
    Quickly backtrack up the platforms towards where you entered, and cross this
    bridge that won't stay up very long.  Re-attach helipods if you must to get
    across.  Use a helipod to raise the door to get outside, use your wrench to
    raise a fan and a platform.  Attach a helipod to the platform and ride it.
    You will need to attach a helipod to a distant target in front of you to the 
    left to open a door exposing a fan that will turn your platform, also you will
    have to keep attaching helipods to the platform you are on to keep it airborn.
    This might take a couple tries.  Repeat this with the next door/fan, only this
    time the distant target will be to the right. Jump off to the platform, wrench
    it to bring up a new fan and platform, before you helipod this platform look
    down level and see an existing helipod holding up a door over a fan, shoot it
    down from here so you will not have to deal with it while on the platform.
    now keep this platform floating with helipods all the way to a circular 
    platform with tons of goodies and a golden bolt.
    The second Bolt - From the ship, head straight, use the decryptor to spin the
    grind rail in place, take the grind rail all the way to its landing spot. 
    Fight or sneak your way up the grav ramp, and use your wrench to bring down 
    an elevator in the next area, take the elevator jump across to the next plat-
    form, and fight your way through the next grav ramp.  Use the decryptor to 
    extend the bridge in the next area, go around the center of this huge room,
    have fun with the walkers!  Slingshot across to a landing and fight off a wave
    or two of bad guys.  Enter the hallway with the random creature arms or mouths
    or whatever they are coming out of the left wall.  At the end of this hall-
    way, there are two decryptors: one ahead and to the right in front of what
    is obviously the door out - ignore this one for now.  The second one is to the
    left before you get to the door.  Use your decryptor here, then take the 
    elevator it brings down up to a second level above.  Follow this second floor
    back down the hallway breaking 3 raritanium crates and finally you will find
    the golden bolt.
    l)Verdigris Black Hole
    Oh boy, so finally we make it to the last space shoot 'em up level...
    Take out the five rainbow colored glowing targets that show up, again it's 
    much easier when returning and not worrying about dying, only looking for the
    targets.  With that in mind, keep an eye and an ear out for the following:
    1. pretty hard to not see this one, approaching the black hole, with a 
    space station getting close it will be center left of the screen
    2. in the mine field "this is one secret we'll be sure to keep to ourselves"
    This one is also center of the screen a little left, not to be confused
    with the glowing mines
    3. When you are fighting along the top of their secret base, and floating 
    towers with helicopter tops keeping them up are shooting at you, look in
    between the last two of these towers towards the top of the screen.
    4. While plowing through the ice shards in the ice covered canyon, keep
    your aim to the left side of the screen, the target will show up after you
    blast away two levels of ice shards once you enter the canyon
    5. while you are clank on the turret, you will see a chunk of ice floating
    through space all by itself at the top of the screen, might as well start to 
    shoot at it, becuase the last target is coming up right behind it.
    5/5 targets will earn you the golden bolt
    The First bolt - head back to the ship and find an elevator to the left of the
    ship if you're looking at it from its front.  Take the elevator down to an 
    underground area, filled with gelenating excitement  for all.  Work your way
    through this area abusing the mighty powers of your gelenator.  You will glide
    down to rocky platform in a lake of green gel towards the end of this area, 
    there will be two rocks protruding from the gel lake, a smaller one on the left
    and a larger one on the right, you will have to go right to turn a crank bolt
    in order to get back to the surface, but if you go left you will find a golden
    bolt behind the gel tank, as I like to call it (the large container of gel that
    is on tank treads)
    The second bolt - This time take the surface route from the ship.  After you
    fight off a bunch of pirates in an open field you will have to walk under a 
    bridge, remember this bridge! Continue through the level, fighting your way
    into a small room with large crates on the right side of the room. (the 
    entrance to this "room" actually looks like a construction vehicle of some sort
    with tank treads and all)  After leaving the room/vehicle, make an immediate
    left turn, and look to your left to see a path leading back up the side of the 
    room/vehicle.  Take this path up to it's end to find the end of a zip line.
    Double jump on top of the room/vehicle, make your way up the rocky path across
    it, fighting off pirates as you go.  You will then cross the bridge you
    previously went under to find a golden bolt in the next room.
    n)Ublik Passage
    The First Bolt - Fight your way all the way through this pirate level, and 
    you will end up on a flying ship, with other ships pulling along side and 
    firing massive cannons at you.  You will destroy these cannons as well as
    dozens of pirates before the ship will dock and you will get off on a plat-
    form just before a large room.  Fight your way through the room, beware of the
    pirates with turrets, when you get to the end of the room there will be a 
    weapons vendor and a teleporter back to your ship.  Look at the wall towards
    the exit of the room to find a grav ramp, take it until it dead ends at a gyro-
    cycle launch pad.  Use the gyro cycle to be shot through some bright orange
    pipes and you will run right into the golden bolt
    The Second Bolt - After you beat slag, and talk to Rusty Pete, walk out to the
    transporter that will say "Return to Ship", but don't you dare return to the 
    ship.  Instead walk up to the edge of the platform and look down and right, 
    and there will be a ship with a very obvious golden bolt, float down and double
    jump to this platform that looks like a balance, and get the golden bolt.
    This can also be found earlier in the level, but it's much harder to get to.
    When you must use the wrench to drop down a bridge early in the level, walk 
    towards the pirate turret, and there will be a grav ramp at the edge of this
    platform, take it around, break the boxes on the other side of the wall for 
    a holo plan piece, but continue on to find a pirate firing at you off the side
    of a ship - use a heli pod to lift a small boat up to the side of the ship, 
    jump off, and find the golden bolt floating up on a platform to your left.
    The First Bolt - After completing this level, your friends will want you to go
    save some other planet, and their ship is conveniently out of service, but you
    aren't going to save that planet just yet, you are going bolt hunting.  With 
    clank once again on your back, make your way back through the level backwards.
    From the Ship, take the elevator behind you, jump platform to platform all the
    way back to the weapons vendor next to a bunch of ammo crates, look past the
    vendor, over his shoulder almost, and you will see a platform way off that you
    can reach gliding - this is why you need clank back, glide down to this plat-
    form, and work your way to the top of this newly found path to find two 
    raritanium chests and a golden bolt.
    The Second Bolt - On your way back from the last golden bolt you just got, 
    work your way towards the ship again.  Stop when you get to three smaller
    rock platforms just before the elevator back to the ship.  Get on the platform
    to your right heading towards the ship (left going backwards) and look down 
    towards the cave wall to see a platform with a helipod target.  Glide down to
    this platform - going in small circles if you don't trust where you're going
    using the right analogue stick to look down at it.  Land on it, helipod it up
    to another ledge of the cave, hop up to the ledge.  Jump up the stair like 
    rocks to find a Raritanium chest and a golden bolt.
    The first Bolt - From the ship, go straight ahead, fighting off enemies as 
    they come, until you reach a grav ramp straight up a white tower.  Take this
    grav ramp up and once you are at the top, turn around to your right and look
    down at the area you just came from.  To the left of this area, there is a 
    glass covered dome, with a golden bolt floating on top of it, jump down and 
    glide to the golden bolt form here.
    The second Bolt - Once you have gotten through the level to the point where
    you are back at your ship, turn around and head back a couple platforms until
    you see another glass covered dome, this time out to the left, all by itself
    or to the right if you are working your way through the level forwards.  It
    is found between some large columns with angled blue lines in them.  Look out
    to this dome structure, and there will be a landing area.  Double jump then 
    glide to the landing area, and there will be a golden bolt right there.
    NOTE: This can only be found when you return to fastoon as the last level of
    the game.
    The only bolt - this one is cake to find.  Fight your way through the seemingly
    hundreds of cragmites here, until you come to an area with lots of round rooms
    each of which has round stairs leading up to it - it's the area right before
    you step on the red floor buttons to open the path to the final battle.  In 
    this area find a round room that is open on the left wall if going forwards
    through the level, or right wall if backwards.  There will be an opening to get
    inside of this room, and in it you will find the FINAL BOLT!!! yay.
    After you get your robo wings and follow the Zoni rings.  Launch the robo 
    wings again,and fly to the middle of the map, hit select and look for a 
    diamond shape with 4 circles as the corners.  Land here, there will be 
    two ways to go, either will work.  Work your way through the enemies to 
    the North most corner, break these boxes and you will have the holo-plan 
    for this planet. (angelbemine3, cbt711)
    Take the ferris wheel (after you get all the statue pieces and go through 
    the tunnel of death thing) up the right side and about halfway 
    up jump and glide to the right. You'll reach an area with a bunch of of crates
    a holo plan is hidden within em (argargarg1, edited by cbt711)
    c)Nundac Asteroid Ring
    That one I know is on one of the farthest outer asteroids, on Delta right 
    beside a box by one of the green launch pads, the one further away 
    from the teleporter. Have to swing your way over there across two gaps 
    (outsider90909, junor324)
    Before taking the elevator to the warp pad back to your ship there will be 
    a door to the right of you. Use a heli -pod on it and go to the right. 
    There will a chest of raritanium and crates smash the crates and you will 
    be rewarded with a Holo-plan.(nayr626)
    e)Rykan V
    Go to the "town" area where your ship and all the sales-bots are. At one 
    edge of town there is a river of lava flowing out from under some big 
    structures.  It will have a pipe that seems to be full of lava, and there 
    will be a large box in front of it.  Jump up to the box and then up the 
    structure until ratchet grabs on to the ledge.. this is where you will have
    to do a  hand-over-hand on the first ledge of the cylindrical structure on 
    the furthest corner of the "town" away from the ship, it will have a pipe 
    that seems to be full of lava, and there will be a large box in front of it
    Jump up to the box then jump up when you have to and walk the rest of the 
    way across. In the farthest corner of the platform, there is a "box" with 
    a forcefield on one edge and a platform with a Helipod target on it. Jump 
    into the box from the platform to the left of it, then use your Helipod to 
    raise it high enough to get to the platform next to it. Break boxes there is 
    the plan  (DesiredFX_EF, edited by cbt711)
    You have to climb onto the dinosaur by the gold bolt--the one who's standing
    on two of the tri-pads. Once you get about halfway up his spine, 
    you can jump to the building. Of course, the other option is to use the 
    Robo-Wings to get there, but the dinosaur makes a good reference point.
    g)Kreeli Comet
    At the point where you use the magnetic track to get past the pirate cannons,
    jump out and glide down to the land below you. You will be right 
    outside a pirate doorkeeper, and behind you there is a swingshot target. 
    Swing across to get to the holo-plan piece.(DesiredFX_EF)
    After finally exiting Zordoom Prison, you will be on a grav-ramp. The path 
    to the left leads back to your ship, but the right is a very short detour 
    with a Holo-Plan piece.  Also when you revisit the planet, You can take a 
    taxi back to the end of the level, then hop off the taxi.  The piece is on 
    the platform before you take the taxi back to your ship. Instead of heading 
    towards the taxi turn around and the holo-plan is in a set of boxes directly
    opposite the taxi. To make it easier to the taxi is on the left the plan is 
    on the right. (MrBlockHead, outsider90909)
    Take the above ground path from where you land, kill the little bug eyed 
    guys until you get to some Pirates in an open area before you go under 
    a Bridge. As you approach the open area from the path, stop between the 
    two rocks where the first pirate is (kill him before you just stand there).
    Look directly to your right, there is a ledge about a double jump high 
    in the face of the rock of the right wall of the open area. Up there is a 
    Raritanium chest with the holo plan piece in it. (cbt711) 
    After you take the first ship across, fight your way to an area with a 
    bolt crank. To your right is a magna-path that will take you around behind
    the building. You'll find some Raritanium chests, etc, and a path that 
    leads to a ship. Don't follow the path just yet. Smash stuff up and run 
    around until you find the plan. I apparently went right past it on the 
    first go. (DesiredFX_EF)
    There are two gun-control turrets that your robot pals use to take out
    the force field. There is a platform in front of the control room to your
    right that you have to jump across open space to get to. You can see
    it pretty easily because it has a cluster of eight crates on it. Smash 'em
    and grab your plan. (DesiredFX_EF)
    There's a big domed room about midway through the level with a trench
    in the middle that you can fall through the city if you fall in. In the
    right hand corner from where you enter it, before the trench, up on a 
    ledge, there's a group of boxes. It has the plans.

    NOTE: This can only be done on your return to Fastoon at the end of the game.
    This one's kind of tricky to describe, and if you don't want to fight 
    Tachyon, you have to do this before Ratchet and Talwyn open the final chamber
    When you use the Decrypter to get into the area outside the final showdown, 
    keep to the right wall, smashing crates and whatever as you go. It's 
    actually very easy to find if you stay along that wall, but it will probably 
    go unnoticed, otherwise. (DesiredFX_EF)
    a)Treasure Mapper
      What it does:  Keeps a running count of holo plan pieces on each planet that
    has one.  They will show up dark grey in the planet selecting menu in your
    ship if you don't have the piece yet, or light grey if you do have the piece.
    The treasure mapper also points out areas you have not found on maps by 
    making them blink, as well as points out the locations of gold bolts on the 
      Where you get it: At the end of Ublik's passage, when you beat slag, on the
    way out to the transporter that takes you back to your ship, you will run into
    the treasure mapper.
    b)Armor Magnetizer
      What it does:  Lets Ratchet pick up bolts from farther away, increases in 
    level with more play throughs. Doesn't work on raritanium or ammo.
      Where you get it:  Finish the path you took to get the first golden bolt
    as described earlier in this guide for the planet, Ardolis - right before
    it leads back to the ship you will pick up the armor magnetizer.
    c)The Box Basher 2000
      What it does:  Lets ratchet destroy boxes with the slam of his wrench from
    a decent distance away even.  Experiment with the jump, wrench slam to find
    out exactly how far away it works.
      Where you get it:  On the planet Jasindu - if you finish the underground
    path as described in the first bolt walk through earlier in this guide, you
    will find the box breaker before getting back to the surface and your ship.
    d)Clank's Secret Code
      What it does:  Unlocks something unknown at this time in a future release
    of the PSP game from Insomniac, Secret Agent Clank.  I could just tell you
    the secret code, but I'm about to show you exactly where it is, so you can
    find it yourself... it's more fun that way.
      Where you get it: When you are Clank in the IRIS super-computer on Kreeli
    Comet and the crazy little Zony are helping you around, You will eventually
    come to a path with two Gyrating spheres in a row.  At the entrance to the
    room with this path, look down and right.  You will see hexagonal pads that
    combine to form a path around the right of the main path in this room.
    You will have to use the Zoni ability to levitate over the hexagonal pads.
    Notice most are electrified, so avoid these and land on the safe pad, as
    always slowing down time (R1) helps a lot.  From the first safe landing pad
    look left, and levitate to the next pad, on this pad you will be given
    Clank's secret code.  Enjoy it someday far off in the future.
    Don't look if you want the challenge, but if you've already passed this 
    level you can't go back until challenge mode so the code happens to be:
    left, left, right, down, up, up X "your secret disguise code:"
    e)All Other Items
      Yes, it is the other items section, inside the other items section.  I 
    will not go into great detail about these items, since you HAVE to get them
    in your journey through Tools of Destruction.  And once you get them you
    can read all about them in the pause menu under gadgets and inventory.
    So without further delay, the other items of the other items of the 
    collectibles guide, in no particular order:
    You start with: (from older Ratchet and Clank games)
    -Swing Shot
    -Thruster Pack (just enable it on the menu, gadgets page)
    -Gravity Boots
    -O2 Mask
    Things you pick up, and where:
    -Heli Pods, after the first trip to the arena
    -Gelenator, on Cobalia from the smuggler
    -Holo-Pirate Disguise, second trip to the arena
    -Robo-Wings, from the Zony on Kortog
    -Geo-Laser, Zony hook you up again on Ardolis
    -3 and 3/4 Centicubit Hexagonal Washer, from the plumber
    -The Decryptor, Sagrasso, from the smuggler
    -Gyro-Cycle, from the smuggler on Rykan V
    -Tachyon Statues, Ok so these are optional, they are found on Mukow in the
    courtyard area with the vendors and a fountain right when you arrive to 
    the planet.  See the next section for help with these.
    >>What do the golden bolts get you? 
    A skill point for collecting them all, and you can buy skins with them.
    See the skins section above for more details on the skins. (cbt711)
    >>What do the holo-plans get you?
    Gadgetron has classified the blue prints to their ultimate weapon, which 
    later is revealed as the Ryno IV, you must find all 13 pieces of the blue 
    print, or holo plan, then turn it into the smuggler for a free Ryno IV v1 
    >>Is the Ryno worth all this trouble?
    Depends on if you are sporting or not - it pretty much eradicates everything
    on the screen.  The down side, is that it makes the game ridiculously 
    easy, and if you're trying to get 2 million Raritanium for the infinite 
    ammo groove ball - it won't help directly.  A great way to use it to help 
    get Raritanium in challenge mode, is kill everything in sight until the 
    multiplier gets to x20(Gmail_Spam), then use any of the raritanium yielding
    weapons to generate tons of raritanium and have it multiplied 20 times over!  
    So the Ryno is great for grinding out TONS of bolts and raritanium... but it 
    will take most of the challenge out of the game.. if not all the challenge.
    >>What are the max capabilities of the Ryno? Max level, ammo, and damage?
    With all raritanium mods, at v5, the Omega can be bought for  50,000,000, 
    and at level 10, it has 900 rounds, with 5141 damage each (DesiredFX_EF)
    >>I found where the holo plan should be, and it plays the animation, but 
      then it doesnt give me the piece, why did this happen, and what do I do 
    This happened to me on my first play through as well.  Not ALL hope is lost, 
    but you might want to start thinking about picking it up on the second play 
    through.  What happened is you either had the box breaker equipped or got in 
    an unlucky shot with one of your weapons around the box with the holo plan 
    piece, and you knocked it through the rendered textures or off a nearby ledge.
    The only fix for this has been to walk around adjacent walls and areas, and 
    if you're close enough (the armor magnetizer helps a lot with this), you will 
    eventually pick the piece up where ever it landed, even if it's stuck in the 
    background.  On my play through and some other people I have discussed this 
    matter with's play through you eventually skip to where it should have been, 
    it plays the animation without actually holding the piece up, but then it does
    show up in your inventory.  If this doesn't work, you can always get it on the
    challenge mode play through, since the boxes will respawn then. (cbt711)
    >>Where are the last (or last couple) Tachyon Statues on planet Mukow?
    Alright, I didn't put these in the guide since 4 of the 6 are in plain sight
    all around the fountain in the area with all the statues, so I will help you
    with the hard ones here.  3 are right out in the open, 1 is behind the 
    fountain area to the right of the entrance to the hall of doom, to the left
    of the path with a slingshot there is an island, double jump and glide, 
    fight off the sop bots, and there is a piece.  1 piece is actually ON TOP OF
    THE FOUNTAIN ITSELF!!!  People miss that one somehow.  And the only true 
    hard one to find:  From the ship, follow the path that leads to the purple
    and yellow and green archway entrance to the courtyard.  Hang a left right
    after this double archway, work your way towards the water, to the left
    you will see a platform leading back to the archway, double jump up here,
    then double jump up to the next platform, and the statue piece is up there.
