Ratchet & Clank

Unused Helpdesk Audio

Unused Goodies Help

This voiceline tells the player about the "Goodies" menu. However, in the final game, the "Goodies" menu is never mentioned by the Helpdesk Girl or anyone in the entire game.

Debug Menu

The same leftover Debug Menu from Ratchet & Clank 1's US release is leftover in both PS3 and PS Vita versions. For some reason, the menu is fully invisible on PS3, but it still fully functional.

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

Unused Fizzwidget Tour Audio

Presumably due to either a glitch or a developer oversight, the Fizzwidget Robot that gives tours on Planet Todano does not speak, meaning his audio goes unused.

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Debugging Cheats

Two debug codes for the HD Up Your Arsenal are left enabled and can be entered by the player. Debug codes for the other two games are disabled and it is unknown if they still exist within the other games. If you enter the same codes on the retail PS2 version, nothing happens. Idol Minds most likely forgot to remove it from the HD port. If you enter the same codes on the betas of the game, you will be given access to a complete debug menu and all weapons and planets, which is interesting because that doesn't happen on the HD port.

Unlock All Weapons/Gadgets

Enter the Pause menu and press Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, and Square. This cheat does not automatically unlock all weapons and gadgets but rather allows the player to obtain and remove weapons and gadgets at will by going to either the 'Weapons' or 'Gadgets' section, selecting a grid and then pressing L3. Weapons unlocked this way will be at LV1.

Unlock All Planets/Missions

Enter the Pause menu and press Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, and Circle. This will allow the player to access any planet in the game once they gain access to the ship. This also unlocks two unused planets named 'level15_cityname' and '#', the latter using the Insomniac Museum's planet in the Galactic Map menu, despite the fact the Museum cannot be accessed this way. Trying to fly to either of these planets will crash the game.

Unused Items

By utilizing the Game quit glitch, we can manipulate the vendor region where the vendor is and use it to give us any item we want. Set the bolt count to anywhere from 1,507,328 to 1,572,863, quit game then autosave twice to activate the glitch. The game will write Planet ID, Bolt Count, Challenge mode and Frames played. So if you set your bolt count to x (the bolt counts below for example) while the glitch is active, it will put that item in the vendor. Same if you manipulate your Planet ID or challenge mode to correspond with the values listed below. A bigger and more comprehensive table for item IDs can be found here.

Most of these items are just Ratchet & Clank 2 leftovers, but are worth noting down here since you can actually get them in-game with a glitch.

Item Hex Decimal Bolt Count Notes Screenshot
Commando Suit 06 06 393216 Still has the same icon and description from Ratchet & Clank 2. Can not be equipped as armor and will crash the game upon buying it due to it equipping it as a weapon. Rac-UYAHD-CommandoSuit.png
Levitator 08 08 524288 Another leftover from Ratchet & Clank 2. Buying this item will crash the game, however it still has its original bolt count and description. Rac-UYAHD-UnusedLevitator.png
Bomb Glove (Paradox ERR) 0A 10 655360 This item works just like the upgraded Bomb Glove from Ratchet & Clank 2. Rac-UYAHD-UnusedBombGlove.png
Sheepinator (Paradox ERR) 0C 12 786,432 On PS2, this item usually crashes the game if you even attempt to equip it. However, on this version you can actually use it up until filling the bar completely - in which case it crashes due to it trying to load a sheep model that isn't in-game.

Grindboots 0E 14 917504 Though the Grindboots don't actually work in-game. They still have some unused behaviour like unequipping your current foot item. Rac-UYAHD-UnusedGrindboots.png
Glider 0F 15 983040 Crashes the game. Rac-UYAHD-UnusedGlider.png
