  1. Complete story and gather bolts - I recommend just completing the story first. During this you will obtain most weapons and gadgets, and more importantly, bolts. Destroy everything that can be and purchase only what you think is necessary. Doing this will help you get the 150,000 bolts required to buy the R.Y.N.O earlier (see Ultimate Animal trophy).

  2. Skill Points - After completing the story, focus on unlocking all the Skill Points. See Skillful trophy for more information.
    NOTE When you visit each planet for the Skills, collect the Gold Bolts located on that planet to save yourself from returning later.

  3. Clean Up - At this point you will have only a few trophies left, such as Bolt Collector, Ratchet, King Midas and Bolt Commando.

  • At the Gemlik Moonbase in the observation tower

This shop is in a high building towards the end of the planet. It is down the run way where you beat Qwark in the jet fighter battle. The tower has a jump slot. Use the jump technique to move from one wall to the other until you get to the small platform above. Then take the elevator.
  • At the Tobruk Crater on Novalis, after completing the game.

This place appears when you beat the game and play it a second time over. There will already be a transportation pad right next to your ship. Go into it and you will be in the secret room.

Drek This!
Defeat Chairman Drek

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

You start the fight as Giant Clank. Once his first health slot, Drek will shrink you and run. Go after him and use missiles, mines and bombs. After you do enough damage, he will run again to another platform. Repeat the same process. When you go to the next one, shut off the cannon. You will have 25 seconds, but everytime you stop it the time you have is less and less. Now Drek has new attacks - a fire ring, a large black summon and green rockets.

At his last health slot, the weapons I recommend are:
  • R.Y.N.O
  • Devastator
  • Tesla Claw

Beat the hoverboard challenge in less than 1:35 on Rilgar

This is Skillful trophy related.

This is the most difficult of the Skill Points, or at least, the one you'll spent more time. To do this, you have to miss almost none of the Boosts and use shortcuts with jumps to cut the turns (there are six turns you cut with jump and speed). Also, it is a good thing to do a trick each time you reach the Big Jump with the wall of Boxes on the next platform. You will win Boosts and you can use with .

Ultimate Animal
Obtain the R.Y.N.O.

R.Y.N.O. can be bought on Rilgare or Blackwater City and it costs 150.000 bolts.

Twisted Hoverboard
Do a "Twisty" McMarx" in the hoverboard race

This is Skillful trophy related.

In the Hoverboard race, take a boost, go on a Big Jump, and jump. In the jump, you will have to push the left analogic stick in the left direction, and press , , , one after the other. To be sure you will do the 4 moves needed in the trick, press each button about 1 second.

Unlock Sketchbook
Attain 15 Skill Points to Unlock Sketchbook in Menu

While going for Skillful trophy, you will unlock the sketchbook by attaining 15 Skill Points.

Destroy all streetlights in Oltanis

This is Skillful trophy related.

Around the platform down your ship, you will see streelights. Destroy those ones, and now look in all the city for other streelights, and destroy them all with your wrench (or weapon). The swingshot path appears after you have completed all the mission of this planet. A ship will destroy the statue on the platform down your ship and a button will appear, press it and the yellow targets for swingshot will appear.

Girl Trouble
Defeat Blarg Station Alien Queen using only the wrench!

This is Skillful trophy related.

In order to get this trophy, go in front of her to lure her and double jump to her right or left and hit her with a Hyper-Strike (like this she will try to hit you, but you will be on her side). After you hit her, go on her other side and hit her again with a Hyper-Strike (pass each time in front of her to lure her again), and repeat until she send her little monsters. With this system, you shouldn't loose life. To kill them, run to make them run after you, and when they will be all behind you, turn and do a Multi-Strike (it should kill the most of them), and finish the few that are still alive with a second Multi-Strike. Now repeat the Hyper-Strike system as before on the Main Boss until she send you the 2 bigger monsters. To kill them, run to one of them when they appear, and try to do this 3 times: do a Hyper-Strike, double jump on his side. Try to kill him as fast as possible, because the second will be soon near you too, and do the same for the second one. If you still have almost your life full before you try to kill them, it doesn't matter if you are hit a few times. After you have killed them, finish the Main Boss with the Hyper-Strike System.
It appears that you must kill the Queen with your wrench only. You can kill all her minions with any weapons you want. But while you hit her minions, if you touch by mistake the Queen with other weapon than the wrench, then you will not be able to get this trophy and the Skill Point.
