The Ultimate Ratchet & Clank HD Collection Trophy List

Let me set the mood for you.  You’re 10 years younger – slightly more attractive, but not as wise.  “Hot in Herre” by Nelly was at the top of the music charts (go ahead – listen to it again.  No one is judging you).  xXx staring Vin Diesel somehow made $277 million dollars.  Annoying long scarves were annoyingly fashionable.  And a 12 year old me was off drinking as many Mountain Dew: Code Red as possible.  It’s 2002.

Moodified yet?  Good.  Because I’m about to drop Nostalgia Bomb on your face.  It was 10 years ago that we experienced our first slice a Lombax and his robot friend: Ratchet & Clank.  We delved into a game full of cheeky wit, massive exploration and gravity defying weapons.  And man, oh man, did we love it.

But that was 10 years ago.  It’s now 2012 and the 10th anniversary of Ratchet & Clank.  In celebration, the Ratchet & Clank HD Collection containing the first three games in the franchise is landing soon with a shiny new graphical overhaul.  But that’s not all.  The game also contains a little thing called Trophies.  Yes, those virtual symbols of monumental gaming accomplishment are now a staple of our culture.  And, yes, the Ratchet & Clank HD Collection has a mountainous amount of trophies for you to earn and treasure.  And, yes, there are three Platinum’s.  Get excited trophy hoarders.

Here’s a rundown of my favorite trophies from the Collection:

Bolt Collector (Sliver) – Ratchet & Clank

For this trophy you need to collect 1,000,000 bolts in the game.  I know what you’re thinking: “B-Ra, it was so simple to get a milli bolts in Ratchet game.  This will be easy breezy!”  Well, that was in the newer Ratchet games, sir or madam.  The original doesn’t give em’ out easily like their Pauly Shore’s autograph.  You need to earn them.

Cluck, Cluck (Bronze) – Ratchet & Clank

Guns are fun, right? (the virtual ones, kids) How do you make them more fun?  Make the gun turn enemies into chickens.  Like a tank!  Now it’s a chicken tank!  Which is ironic, because I wouldn’t be a chicken if I was in a tank.  Not that I’m a chicken normally…

More Vandalism? (Bronze) – Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

Creating is a magnificent experience.  There is a certain spectral joy that comes from crafting something. However, most of the time this creative joy pales into comparison to the visceral pleasure of destruction.  So, go on.  Enjoy yourself.  Destroy everything in the Megacorp Store on Planet Oozla.  It’s the Ratchet way.

Omega Man (Silver) – Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

No, this isn’t a trophy for watching the screentastic 1970’s sci-fi film The Omega Man.  It’s even better than that.  You get this puppy by buying all the Omega versions of the weapons in the game.  So, after you up your arsenal – you need to up it again.  And then you should watch The Omega Man because it’ll make your day at least 20% cooler.

Skill Master (Silver) – Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Fun Fact: Insomniac was doing trophies before it was cool with Skill Points.  To get this Trophy you need to get all the Skill Points in the game.  So, let me lay it out for you.  You do a bunch of challenges, to unlock a challenge, which is a part of another set of challenges you have to unlock.  Meta.  All it needs is a few *BWAAAAA*’s and it’s good to go.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the bunch, shall we?

Whew, that was a long list.  I literally had to type all that out and to be honest my hand is cramping at this point.  That’s bad for my impending arthritis, but great for all you gamers out there.  Now you get to experience three classic Ratchets all over again in HD – while it levels up your gamer cred.  Has there ever been a bigger Win/Win?  Nay.

So, crank up the Nelly.  Go give $10 to Vin Diesel and ask him to punch something.  And go to the Smithsonian and steal a scarf.  It’s time to party like it’s 2002, my friends.  It’s time to save the galaxy with Ratchet & Clank once again.

    Bolt Collector in RaC1 only a SILVER trophy? Aww, you guys are mean ;P

    • nicky11123

      in ratchet and clank 1 its gonna be hard to get a million bolts 🙁

  • ktiger34

    Fantastic! I’m glad that you have to 100% the games in order to get each platinum trophy.

  • raycey

    Only a silver for 1 million bolts in R&C1? When was the last time the person who came up with that played the game? I’m guessing never.

    So NOT looking forward to getting those hoverboard trophies, I hate hoverboarding. >:(

    Then there are those Ace Bunyan races, sheesh.

    Other than the above, easy breezy. 🙂


    This is amazing, I can’t wait for the surprise Ted Price was talking about in the North American release. I love you Insomniac

  • DarkMegamanSX900

    One word DAM!!!!! ok Insomniac bring it on!!!

  • LoathsomeLittleLombax

    Challenge Accepted. Bring it on! 8)

    • DarkMegamanSX900

      yep that is my line Challenge Accepted!! thanks for the reminder Loathsome LOL LOL

  • ssj4dragon

    1 million bolts is going to be so difficult.

  • Sprock Ett

    YAY! 😀 Im so happy! Whoever wrote this blog is genius! I sing Hot In Herre every day :I Maybe.
    I’m a little sad that Australia is getting the collection much later than it said xD Late June or something….BAH CAN’T WAIT!!!

  • Tigranater

    I thought that 1mil bolts thing was a typo! Getting 150,000 was hard enough. You really can’t be serious with giving us 1,000,000 to earn?

    Damn, my trophy guide will take aaaages 😛

  • madmarsrocks

    1,000,000 bolts?! That’s almost as overwhelming as homework. D:

    • its tough but at least its cumulative and not just all at once. personally took me 4 play throughs using only the Wholliper, Suck Cannon, Taunter, and R.Y.N.O to get it.

  • lol ah 2002. I was also 12 and yes, mt dew code red was the best. Im working on getting the plat for ratchet2 uhg..these damn nanotech…at the end of the game and need 16 more. tired of doing the impossible challenge. man u guys make us WORK for the plat! lol

  • Sammy Brode

    in up your arsenal what about the skill point —–Be a sharpshooter—
