|Trophy: I Shot Down Your Battleship|
|Complete "Destroy the battleships"|
Destroy the battleships is a mission in Ratchet & Clank, taking place in Fort Krontos on planet Batalia. After Ratchet and Clank fought through the fort with Cora Veralux to get to the Starwatch Defense Cannon, it was time to destroy the four blarg battleships invading the planet.
Completing this mission unlocks the bronze trophy I Shot Down Your Battleship.
The Starwatch Defense Cannon is immobile. To get it online, use the Trespasser on the Invinco-Lock located right of the stairs leading inside the cannon. The Trespasser has now been upgraded to deactivate rings with (by pressing ); deactivate any rings that contain blockers or unnecessary lasers. In this puzzle, simply deactivate the ring in the middle and then connect the lasers in the outer and inner rings.
With the cannon now operational, press to enter it. Rotate the cannon with the stick or stick, and fire the machine gun with . The machine gun fire can only destroy the blarg saucers, and are useless against the battleships, your main target. Seven icons in the screen will appear, representing a gauge before the ion cannon is active. Destroy the smaller blarg saucers to charge the cannon and add to the gauge, until all seven icons fill orange, and the gauge turns yellow. When the ion cannon is active, fire the ion cannon at the larger battleships with , which will destroy it in one hit.
After this, the battleships will begin firing red missiles that home in on you. Shoot the missiles out of the sky with the machine gun while still shooting down the saucers to refill your gauge. A red exclamation mark icon will point you to any imminent missiles you cannot see on screen; destroy them first. When the ion cannon fills, fire it at another battleship. Repeat this until all four battleships are destroyed. On occasion, groups of four saucers will fly in front of your cannon to attack you; make sure to destroy these before they hit, as this will help refill the ion cannon gauge so that you can strike another battleship.
When all battleships are destroyed, the blarg will retreat, ending the mission. You can now take a flying taxi back to the ship. The Galactic Rangers will then assign you the mission "Meet up with the Galactic Rangers", in which you must travel to Quartu. However, if not already completed, complete the missions "Ride the rail" , as you will gain coordinates to Pokitaru, unlocking the mission "Meet up with Felton Razz". Complete the missions there before proceeding to Quartu.
