First, climb into the hover plane and shoot the Bioblitorator. It will shoot rockets at you. If your ship explodes, you will drop to a turbo slider. Take the right bridge to another hover plane to continue shoting him.
Note: Take the left bridge the second time and Quark sometimes will get in the way.
As soon as the mini-Boss or Boss battle starts, throw a number of Megaturret Gloves, which will deploy into little machine-gun turrets (upgraded to rocket launchers). If you have six to seven turrets simultaneously shooting, you will defeat the Boss easily. The turrets are also very helpful in the many arena battles.
|Defeating Courtney Gears|
Once the battle starts, take out the N60 Storm/N90 Hurricane and kill her backup dancers. Eventually, she will appear in a go-go cage around the stage. Shoot her while dodging the laser things until more backup dancers appear. When Ratchet depletes two thirds of her health, she will step onto the stage and attack you as she did before, only doing the same attack as the backup dancers in addition. Shoot her, avoiding everything she tosses at you and you will win.
|Defeating Giant Klunk|
Have the Annihilator/Decimator to at least version 4 and blast away at Giant Klunk. If he actually gets the time to attack, it will be with an energy bomb. Just avoid it and the shockwaves and continue firing until you kill him.
The recommended arsenal to do this is the Multi Blade Gun, Decimator, Spitting Hydra Rift Ripper, Mini Turret Glove, Max Nanotech, Gagatron PDA, and 200,000 Bolts. In the first round, shoot Nefarios with the Multi-Blade Gun until one quarter of his health is gone. If you run out of ammunition, use the PDA to buy more. In the second round, start by using the Decimator to defeat the two giant Ninja robots. Then, take out the robot troops. Nefarious will shoot a bad magic ray at you. Get under his forcefield bubble and he will begin flying away. Chase him and defeat the other giant ninja robots and troops. You will then reach a circular platform. Nefarious will shoot bad magic rockets, and there will be targets on the ground. Get under him. He will deactivate the bubble and drop down. Repeat shooting him with the Decimator and the Multi-Blade Gun. Repeat this until he is defeated.
Note: Four ranger robots will appear before the circular platform to help destroy the rest of the troopers.
Take out the N60 Storm and fire. When he throws his boomerang, move along with it (in a circular motion). After one quarter of his life is gone, tribesmen will appear. Kill them and continue firing until he is knocked out.
|Defeating The Momma Tyrranoid|
Get the N60/N90 and fire away, dodging her swipes. When she latches onto the ceiling, dodge the lasers and shoot the turret. After half of her health gone, she will shoot missiles onto the ground. The fight will go into her point of view. Take out the Plasma/Quantum Whip and run for your life. When you reach an alcove, jump into it and kill any noids that attack you. When you exit the alcove, repeat the same process and blast her with the N60. The turret on her back will now launch missiles now -- be careful.
|Double Bladed Laser Sword|
Pause the game and press Circle, Square, Circle, Square, Up, Down, Left(2). The wrench will be replaced with a double bladed laser.
At the command center where you have to destroy the Bioblitorater, at the beginning of the level you will see lots of tables, chairs, and umbrellas. When you see them, use your jump attack (Jump + Circle) and everything will break. You will get about 5,000 Bolts. You can do this many times, as the objects all reappear when you die. There are also other areas in the level where you can do this.
To do this, you must have the Flux/Splitter to at least version 3 and the "Scorpio" (or "Naptime") challenge. Go to Annihilation Nation and enter the Deathcourse. Choose "Scorpio" (or "Naptime"). Once the challenge starts, equip the Flux/Splitter rifle and enter sniper mode (L1), but do not zoom in. Then, press Circle to fire until Scorpio dies. Do this until you have the desired amount of Bolts.
When you are in the Sewer, you can climb up to an area using Gravity Boots. This area is a metal slide, and cannot be entered without Gravity Boots. You will then be at a new area of pipes, where there are more Crystals.
|Easy Weapon Upgrades|
If you have weapons that have not been upgraded at all, you can easily upgrade them by going to worlds with harder enemies. Use the weapons on them, and do not care about getting killed. Repeat this, and you can get upgraded weapons easier.
Jump on a piece of scenery that is in a corner or other area where you cannot get off. The game will keep you suspended there, falling forever.
During the battle with Dr. Nefarious while he is floating in his bubble, rangers will show up. Before going to the second circular area and on the bridge, take out the Flux Rifle and scope Nefarious. Shoot and the game will freeze.
|Infinite Inferno Armor|
When you get the Inferno Power Boost, pause the game and go to "Skins", then select "Current Armor". You will then have that armor on you without it disappearing after the time runs out.
Note: The armor will not be flaming. If you turn of the power when you are done playing, the armor will be gone. The best place to find the armor boost is in Annihation Nation.
Go to the teleport pad in Metrapolis between 3:00 a.m and 3:59 a.m., or at any time if all trophies are collected. Use it to reach the Insomniac Museum. The museum contains various pictures, concept art, comics, design concepts, and more.
|Map O Matic|
Successfully complete every Galactic Ranger level to get a Trophy and a Map O Matic. The new and improved Map O Matic shows the locations of Crystals, Gadgetrons, and secrets.
|Ninjas And Pirates Mini-game|

Note: "_" indicates a space. Press Start and you will be transported to the Insomniac Museum where you can play a two player game featuring ninjas and pirates.

|Refill Health And Ammunition|
Start any challenge, then immediately quit.
If you are low on health, find an area where the opponent cannot hit you with their weapons. Make sure that they are nearby (for example, on top of a pillar). Using the Holo Shield Glove (version 5), shoot out some barriers. The Shield Barriers will suck health from enemies and give them to you. This is very helpful in tight situations.
