Cheating Dome presents Cheats & Hints for Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal running on PlayStation 2
In any Quark Vid-Comic either press Up(2), Down(2), Left, Right, Circle(2), Square or Up(2), Down(2), Left, Right, Circle, Square(2) to change Quark's outfit. Win every challenge in the Annilation Mation. As you destroy enemies in Challenge Mode, the bolts that drop are multiplied by the number shown. Destroying more enemies increases this multiplier up to 20 times, but it will reset each time your take a hit. When coupled with the Jackpot Crate, it is possible to double this multiplier (to 40 times). - Sent by [JoelMcRae] To get the biggest amount of bolts in the game you must...
1. Beat the game once.
2. Get all the sewer crystals, but dont spend them right away.
3.Go around through the sewers and demolish those green slime creatures until your bolt multipler is at maximum.
4.Finally, while your bolt multiplyer is at it's fullest, go to the plumber and give'em the crystals.
(After steps 1-3, it would help if you find a bolt multiplyer box) - Sent by [Devin] Have a saved game from Ratchet And Clank: Going Commando on your memory card to have the Lava Gun, Bouncer, Holoshield, and other weapons available to be purchased.

Wrench Replacement - Enter code from Demo On planet Aquatos, you have the option of collecting sewer crystals for the plumber and trading them for bolts. When you first get to this part of the game, you can go through a small area and collect crystals, but why not just wait until you get the Magnet Boots before collecting mmost of them? When you wear these boots, you can access much more of the entire area. They allow you to walk on walls and ceilings, dodge enemies, collect more crystals, and even go through hidden tunnels on the ceilings and walls. By waiting to this point, it helps you stay alive while you collect tons of these crystals to trade for cold hard bolts! In the Insomniac Museum, play the unused Quark vid-comic level and enter: up, up, down, down, left, right, circle, square, square. To obtain the lightsaber from Star Wars, you must first pause the game. Then, tap in these buttons in order: Circle, Square, Circle, Square, Up, Down, Left, Left. When you unpause the game, Ratchet's wrench should be replaced with a double sided lightsaber from Star Wars! - Sent by [sackboy90] To beat Helgas best time easily, go through the VR training to the last hacker. When you finish, DO NOT FINISH THE LEVEL!!! Instead, jump of the cliff behind you and die. Re-do the training course and shouldny have to do the hacker ports again. This makes it incredibly easy to "Beat Helga's Best Time". - Sent by [supyo11] Destroy Scorpio or Gary and Helen once. Then come back and fight them again with the bouncer, it only takes a few shots. After You beat them a lot, you get minimum amounts of Xp. All you have to do to get tons of Xp again is to fight Scorpio in the sleeping gas round or beat Gary and Helen in the dodge and defeat round. - Sent by [KyeDude4.0] Need easy stages to get weapon experience? Play the Annihilation Nation challene against Scorpio to rack up the XP. Some weapons, like the shield glove, may need different stages to gain XP. For the shield glove, try playing the battle missions in Marcadia and having the bevy of peons shoot your shield for XP. There is a cheat displayed stating that you can keep the infernox armor forever if you simply open the infernox mode box, pause the game, open the skins screen, and select "current armor" I have tried this cheat, and it does however work, but the "fake" armor is only the equivalent to your armor that is displayed on your items screen, which is the last armor that you have purchased, or your "real" armor. The game designers have put this cheat on the game, simply to trick the players who think that they can get the infernox armor for free. - Sent by [Ryan] Go to any challenge like Annihilation Nation, start the challenge and quit and it refills your ammo and health. If you have save data from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and you recognize a couple of these weapons then that is a good thing. With the Megacorp Warranty you can get the Miniturret Glove, Lava Gun, Bouncer, Plasma Coil, and Shield Charger all for free. - Sent by [JoelMcRae] Do all of the Ranger Battle missions. If you have a save from Ratchet and Clank 1, you get a 10% discount on weapons when you buy them. Save must be past the 2nd hoverboard race. On planet Aquatos, You will be asked by the Plumber to collect "Sewer Crystals". The Plumber pays 20,000 bolts for each. To Receive MORE SC's FASTER, Play through, doing all Galactic Ranger missions, until you have the Gravity Boots and the Map-o-Matic, then return to the Aquatos Sewer. You may now Walk on the walls and ceiling of the Sewer like an Ameoboid. Your map also shows SC locations and most of the sewer is green. To explore the uncharted "green" areas, Run across the ceiling until you find a hole. It will take you to the Upper Sewer, with more SC's to grab. Use your map to search them out, then retrieve them. Selling SC's can get you the $$$ you need for weapons faster (I did this to get the RY3NO!). - Sent by [Upgrademaster] In Starship Phoenix hit the one-eyed monkey with your wrench to get the skill point. - Sent by [KenFougere] Go to Annihilation Nation and complete all challenges, paying extra attention to destroying foes, bolt crates, bomb crates, cameras, and scenery. Also, you should pay attention to titanium bolt locations. Certain Deathcourses place platforms in areas where a titanium bolt platform is hidden (for example, one of the bridges has a platform too far out to reach unless you are in a certain Deathcourse, in which a 2nd platform with a laser- shooting robot is provided). If in challenge mode and you have the Bolt Grabber V2 (from the Zeldrin Starport), Try not to get hit, so your bolt multiplier maxes out and stays that way (using your shield Charger/Tesla Barrier blocks damage, but you're still hit) and use your overhead wrench attack allot to open crates and break scenery (except cameras) and gain bolts easier. Open Bolt multiplier crates to double your normal multiplier's number and gain even more bolts. When all this is done, you receive over 1 million Bolts, 2 titanium bolts from deathcourses, two Quark Video- comics, the Tyrraguise (which disguises you as a Tyrranoid), a trophy, and at least 1 skill point. - Sent by [Upgrademaster] Heres how to defeat Courtney. First keep shooting at her. If she spins around just easily run away. Sometimes she sends out her robots to kill you. Use the whip to get rid of them quickly. Lock on her and just run in circles while shooting. - Sent by [Krista] There are two steps to defeating him. (first step) first you will have to sky dive onto the arena. Dodge the missles. (You can just go in a circle.)Then when you get to the ground, start shooting at him. When you get enough dammage hell fly to the way other side of the arena. You can either fight all the enemies or use your boots to zoom across really fast. When you reach him, start shooting at him again. All you really have to do is lock on him and run around him in circles while shooting. There is life and crates on the outside of the arena. If you need more help you can contact me. - Sent by [Krista] To get easy bolts go to tyhrranosis and break the trees then come back after you leave and they will be back and the easy way to kill the queen sewer monsters you get your shock cannon to v5 and charge it up then shoot. - Sent by [Ratchet&clankfreak] On the crash site go through the level until you reach the third big robot then you jump up the ledge. You should see a arch type structure there. Go to the end of the arch and look up then use your hypershot. Then from there you go through more hypersot targets. Boom there it is! - Sent by [Rachetskaterv2] The very cool and special Insomniac Museum is a hidden planet in the game where those skilled and lucky enoughcan go to check out some very cool extras, cutting room floor materials, minigames, effects, animations, weapons, etc., via a detailed and 3D rendered replica of the Insomniac Games' offices. There are two ways to get into the Insomniac Museum:
1. The first is to collect all of the games 15 trophies. Once all have been collected the locked door inside the Trophy room at Phoenix will be open. Just walk in and you will be whisked away into the museum.
2. The second way to get into the museum is via a special teleporter on Metropolis. The pad can be found through the window on the left, before the swing target leading to the level's first Titanium bolt. The teleporter is typically not operational but, if you return to it when all good "Insomniacs" are awake-between 3:00-3:59 AM. - Sent by [JoelMcRae] Use the VR deck to get your weapons stronger and get more experience.
