Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart has 10 Spybot Locations. Finding all Spybots is required to unlock the ultimate RYNO weapon for trophy Aim to Misbehave. Hence, all 10 of these are required for trophy purposes. Each of them gives you one piece of the blueprints for the RYNO weapon. After you get all of them you can simply buy the weapon from the Ms. Zurkon weapon vendor.
They are a type of Collectible that gets marked on the map when you go near it. They look like small flying robots.
None of the Spybots are missable, you can still get all of them after the story by resuming the game from the title screen and it will put you back before the endboss. Then you can backtrack to all their locations. In fact, it’s not possible to get most of them on your first visit to the planets. Many of them require backtracking much later in the story. You get a spaceship after the 2nd planet and then you can fly back to old planets any time. You can keep track of your progress via the Collectible Menu.
All Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart Collectibles:
- Blizon Crystals
- All Gold Bolts
- Glitch Challenges
- Collectibles Guide (All-in-One)
Planet 1: Corson V
For this you must complete the optional objective “Search the Factory”. From where you enter the factory, look straight ahead and go to the assembly line at the end of the room where boxes go up a ramp and disappear behind a laser grid. On this assembly line are some big moving boxes. Jump on the side of one such box when it passes by the last “balcony” in the room. Then “wall jump” from the side of the box to the balcony above it. You only have a short time window because the box is moving, but you can simply wait for the next box if you miss. It’s easiest when you are standing on the production line behind the box, facing in the direction it’s moving in. Now that you’re on the balcony you should see a wall with blue hexagon patterns on it, you can wall-jump up there. Once at the top, go into the next big production hall. Here you must do a similar trick, this time wall-jumping from the side of metal box on a yellow forklift to land on a big moving box, then from the moving box then onto the yellow forklift. Then you can jump across the moving production lines at the top of the room to reach the exit. The rest is quite linear, just kill the enemies up ahead and you’ll be forced to pick up the Spybox at the end of the Factory. You are forced to pick it up before leaving the Factory, so can’t miss it at this point.
Planet 2: Sargasso
This one you cannot get on your first visit to this planet! After finishing the 3rd planet “Scarstu Debris Field” you need to backtrack here (at this point you are able to backtrack to all planets with your spaceship). A new side quest will now be available in Sargasso, it’s automatically marked on the map and called “Help Trudi (Optional)”. Complete this quest and you will unlock some Zurpstone icons on the map. Collect 30 total and return them to the quest giver to unlock a flying dragon mount. You can now use this to fly over the map. Collect 45 and Trudi learns to shoot fireballs to reach the last Zurpstones in the air. Collect all 60 Zurpstones and return to the questgiver to get the Spybot as a reward! You should first collect all the easy-to-reach ones on the ground, then after you have 45 fly on Trudi to shoot the remaining ones with her fire ability (she only learns this move after finding 45 Zurpstones, not before that). Also note that the Zurpstones in the northwest (west of questgiver) might not be marked on the map. So if you end up with a few missing and nothing is left on the map, fly over the area west of the questgiver (where you went to collect the first few Zurpstones for him) and you should see them easily by their purple glow. See Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart – All Zurpstone Locations.
Planet 3: Scarstu Debris Field
This one you cannot get on your first visit to this planet! It’s a reward from completing the 4th Gold Battleplex Challenge “Vroom Around”. You unlock the Gold Challenges after beating the story on all 9 planets, so basically at the very end of the story. Then you can return to Zurkie’s bar to start the Gold Challenges.
This one you cannot get on your first visit to this planet! It’s found on a far-away floating platform in the very north of this planet. To get there you must first obtain the Hurlshot ability (automatic story unlock) from the 6th planet Torren IV. Then you can use the yellow hook to the right of the purple portal to Zurkie’s bar. This will catapult you over to the Spybot platform.
Planet 4: Savali
In the northeast corner of Savali, in a cave with a pirate ship in it. The entrance is south of the Spybot icon on the map, in the area with waterfalls you must jump over two stone platforms to reach the cave entrance (a raritanium is also at the entrance).
Planet 5: Blizar Prime
Reward for completing Chef Tulio’s Side Quest “Find the Missing Chef” (marked on the map by side quest icon, in the northeast of this planet). After finding the Chef you must defend her honey machine from enemies, after this she gives you the Spybot.
Planet 6: Torren IV
Shortly after the start of the planet, after jumping across the gap using the swing rope, go down the magnetic path on your right to find it (just before Ms. Zurkon weapon vendor).
Planet 7: Cordelion
In the forge, where the main objective is to forge the Dimensionator. It’s above the forge entrance, pull yourself up there using the yellow rift.
Planet 8: Ardolis
After finishing all main story objectives on this planet you will be returned to your spaceship. Just in front of your spaceship a new purple teleporter will have opened up that brings you back to Ms. Zurkon in the center of the map. Take the path to the immediate right of Ms. Zurkon and use the rope swing to land on a floating pirate ship. On the left side of this pirate ship is an elevator, at the top are 2 more rope swings. After you land, look to your right, the northeastern part of the map. There’s a sandy island there and some half-broken bridges leading to it. From here you must use your hoverboots at full speed to jump onto the broken bridges below, then you can get onto this island. At the end of the island is the Spybot next to a teleporter.
Planet 9: Viceron
You will destroy a fan to enter a ventilation shaft, the Spybot is inside. Just keep following the corridors and you’ll see it (just before dropping out of the vents).
That’s all of the Spybot locations in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart. After finding the last one, speak to Ms. Zurkon, the weapon vendor, and you can buy the RYNO weapon from her for 0 bolts. This also unlocks the Aim to Misbehave trophy.
