Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart - PS5 Hints and Tips
As one of the most exuberant games to hit the PS5 yet, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has proven hugely popular, blending incredible next-gen graphics with that iconic, action-packed gameplay we've all come to love from the franchise. But as with every R&C game, there are secrets to uncover and challenges to master. If you're ready to step up your game and discover some Easter Eggs along the way, read on for some key hints and tips.
Tip 1: Embrace the Rifts
The rift mechanic isn't just there for show. It fundamentally alters gameplay, allowing you to zip across battlefields and access previously unreachable areas. Harness it not just as a navigational tool, but as a strategic asset in combat. Pulling yourself to a rift can help you escape from tight spots or give you a better vantage point against tough enemies.
Tip 2: Weapon Combos
With an expansive arsenal at your disposal, it's easy to stick to one favorite weapon. But true mastery comes from understanding and using weapon combinations effectively. For example, try freezing enemies with the 'Cold Snap' before smashing them to bits with the 'Ricochet'. Experiment with different combinations to find devastatingly effective pairings.
Tip 3: Keep an Eye on Weapon Upgrades
Regularly check in with Ms. Zurkon. As you collect Raritanium, you'll want to upgrade your weapons. Prioritize upgrades for your most frequently used weapons first. However, don't neglect the others; sometimes, a well-upgraded underdog can shine in specific scenarios.
Tip 4: Mobility is King
'Dash' is your new best friend. Use it to dodge attacks, close in on enemies, or to swiftly navigate the environment. Combining jumps, dashes, and swings will ensure you remain one step ahead of your foes.
Tip 5: Hunt for Spybots
Scattered throughout the game are 10 Spybots, each containing crucial info. Collecting them all won't just flesh out the game's backstory but will also grant you access to the RYNO 8, one of the most powerful weapons in the game.
Easter Egg Alert!
Speaking of the RYNO 8, once you have this weapon, try firing it during different combat scenarios. This weapon has a chance to pull objects or characters from other dimensions, and keen-eyed fans might recognize a few cameos from other beloved PlayStation games!
Tip 6: Master the Hoverboots
Drift, boost, and jump! The Hoverboots aren't just a means of fast travel; they're a skill to be mastered. Use them to access hidden areas, escape combat, or breeze through certain challenges. And don't forget: you can switch between running and the Hoverboots with ease. Use this to your advantage!
Tip 7: Dimensional Puzzles & Clank
Some of the most challenging (and rewarding!) segments of the game involve Clank solving dimensional puzzles. Take your time with these. Understand the mechanics of each dimension type and remember: there's no harm in experimenting.
Tip 8: Photo Mode and Easter Eggs
Rift Apart boasts a detailed photo mode. As you play around with this feature, keep an eye out for hidden details and nods to other Ratchet & Clank games. The developers have sprinkled plenty of Easter Eggs in the environments, especially in the neon-lit streets of Nefarious City.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a gem in the PS5's crown, a game that perfectly blends old-school charm with next-gen brilliance. Whether you're a series veteran or a newbie to the Ratchet & Clank universe, these tips and tricks will ensure you're raring and ready to tackle whatever the multiverse throws at you. Happy gaming, and may your Rift Tether always find its mark!
