Bolts make the galaxy go around, at least in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. This is the game’s currency that is used to buy new weapons and refill ammunition. Unfortunately, players are likely to struggle when collecting enough Bolts to keep buying the latest new weapons. Those later guns can get really expensive really quickly. Thankfully, there’s a fast, easy way to farm bolts.
Fastest way to get Bolts in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
The fastest way to get Bolts in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is to use the Bolt Multiplier.
The bad news is that the Bolt Multiplier is locked behind the game’s completion. It’s only unlocked after the player beats the game and starts a new save using the Challenge Mode option.
Once unlocked, players who avoid damage will be rewarded with a multiplier that goes all the way up to 20. That means players will be earning 20 times the usual Bolts rewards. What’s more, this affects Arena wins, making it easy to get millions of Bolts in relatively little time.
Those struggling to avoid getting hit may way to use the Game Speed option in the Accessibility menu. Lowering the game speed down to 70% can provide the extra time needed to spot a projectile or enemy and successfully dodge out of the way.
To get Bolts quickly outside of Challenge Mode, players should focus on the Arena Mode. There are some quick boss fights that, once mastered, can be completed in under a minute. Grind these out to keep the Bolts flowing. This will also rapidly level weapons up.
Everybody’s favorite Plumber makes a return in Rift Apart, but his appearance is subtle. Here’s the need-to-know on this recurring character.
Leveling up weapons can be a slow process, especially the more unconventional guns. Thankfully, there’s a super-fast way of getting them up through the ranks.
Wondering what the best weapon to start with is? Here’s the gun that all new players should be giving a go and leveling up as soon as possible.
