Gold Bolts are a mainstay of the Ratchet and Clank series, and Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart isn’t looking to buck that trend. It has 25 for you to track down throughout its worlds, and while some are a cinch to find, others can require a bit more time and effort to nab. It’s likely the latter that has brought you here, and has you wondering how to get every Gold Bolt in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart.
Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. Below you’ll find detailed breakdowns of each Bolt’s location, how to get them, and when the best time to get them is. We’ll be updating the guide as we discover the best ways to find each bolt to, so be sure to check back in as you progress through the game.
How to Get All Gold Bolts in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart
As stated above, there are 25 Gold Bolts to track down in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart.
Most are tied to exploring a given planet for nooks and crannies off the beaten path, while others are locked behind story progression or side quest completion requirements.
We’ve broken down how to get each planet’s bolts as said planets become available in the game down below. again though, it’s worth noting that some won’t be available until a later point in the game, meaning you won’t be able to get every Bolt in one visit to some planets.
Corson V – 3 Gold Bolts
First up is Corson, the planet Ratchet arrives at after Rift Apart’s introductory level. There are three Gold Bolts to track down, and all of them are available during your first visit.
Gold Bolt 1 Location
The first Gold Bolt can be found in the lower-right corner of Corson V’s central section. To reach it, head toward the right side of the central section, using some back alleys to reach a hidden portion. Once there, look for a red crate. Hop on top of it, and then look to your right. There will be a dimensional tear you can use to zoom over to an inaccessible area. Use the tear, and the Gold Bolt will be directly in front of you.
Gold Bolt 2 Location
The next Gold Bolt is found on the upper right side of the top portion of the map. To reach it, you’ll need to have progressed the story to the point where you gain the phantom dash ability and gauntlet, and can use them to wall-run across hovering plates with blue arrows on them.
Progress to this point in the game, and then head to the upper left portion of the upper portion of the map. Head toward the point shown on the map above, and you’ll then find some broken railing where you can jump out toward a secluded platform. Jump to it, and then use the wall-running plates to reach the right section of the area. Continue forward, and then turn right to find the Bolt.
Gold Bolt 3 Location
The third and final Gold Bolt you can find on Corson V is inside the factory where the Info Bot side mission takes place. To nab it, head toward the first area with crates on conveyer belts. Jump on top of the larger crates and ride them through the area to make your way toward the exit leading into the next room. While at the exit, look to your right and you’ll find some more conveyer belts you can platform across to reach the Gold Bolt.
