Ratchet & Clank Future: Gold Bolt guide

Grab all 32 Gold Bolts NOW! Our videos show you the way

After months of anticipation, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction has finally hit thePS3, and it's... easy. Almost too easy. Even by the standards of the series. But as seasoned Ratchet fans know, playing a Ratchet game is about much more than just blasting your way straight through its storylin, and this shooty-jumpy powerhouse is no exception.

Ratchet & Clank Future is packed to the gills with hidden nooks, crannies and incentives to explore them, not the leaset of which are the Gold Bolts. There are 32 of these huge, glittering prizes scattered throughout the game's 18 levels; some are easy to find, and others stay maddeningly hidden even after you get the "Treasure Mapper" device near the end of the game. Whichever ones you're having trouble with, though, we're here to help - just click the tab at left with the name of the level you'd like to focus on, and our videos will show you exactly where to go to claim your prize.

What do you get for collecting them all? Bragging rights, a special Skill Point and access to seven new skins for Ratchet, which we've collected here:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
