Best first weapon and upgrades in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart Best weapon

The best first weapon in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is the Enforcer.

Right from the get-go, the Enforcer is a formidable shotgun weapon. However, as it levels up and becomes more powerful, it proves devastating to even the biggest and baddest enemies in the game. What’s more, it levels up really quickly. Use it up to and against the first boss to hit max level in no time.

Combine the Enforcer with its upgrades of range and ammo count to deal with enemies over longer distances and without having to worry about running out of bullets.

Of course, the Burst Pistol is the game’s true first weapon, which is forced into the player’s hands during the celebration parade. However, it’s up to the player on whether or not they upgrade it. It’s a simple point-and-shoot weapon that gradually wears down an enemy’s health, but it can be pretty slow.

I found switching between the Burst Pistol for large groups of small enemies and the Enforcer for chunkier enemies to be a great combination.

To buy the best weapons in Rift Apart, players need Bolts. Helpfully, this guide details how to make the currency quickly.
