Oozla

Prehistoric Rampage

Trophy: Prehistoric Rampage
Collect the "Prehistoric Rampage" skill point Bronze

"Prehistoric Rampage" is collected by shooting down four pterodactyls that fly in the skies above the Megacorp Outlet area. The pterodactyls are relatively slow-moving targets, have circular flight patterns, and many will fly above directly ahead of where the ship lands, in front of the outlet. It is best to return with the Pulse Rifle, as it can aim at them easily.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Take Aim.

Smash and Grab

Trophy: More Vandalism?
Collect the "Smash and Grab" skill point Bronze

"Smash and Grab" is collected by destroying all breakables in the Megacorp Outlet. This is difficult to obtain on first visit, but is trivial to obtain after obtaining the Box Breaker, which can be obtained by defeating swamp monster II on this very planet (possible once the Gravity Boots are obtained). With the Box Breaker, use the hyper-strike (X + Square) throughout the Megacorp store until all breakables are destroyed.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy More Vandalism?.

Maktar Resort

Wrench Ninja: Blade to Blade

Trophy: Wrench Ninja: Blade to Blade
Collect the "Wrench Ninja: Blade to Blade" skill point Silver

"Wrench Ninja: Blade to Blade" is collected by defeating Chainblade in a Galactic Gladiators arena battle using only the OmniWrench. This can be done in any challenge, but the most straightforward way to do this is in the normal "Chainblade Challenge". The easiest way to achieve this is to return to the challenge with the OmniWrench 12000 obtained during completing "Meet up in the hangar bay" on the second visit to Aranos, as this OmniWrench 12000 can defeat him in only a few hits, and his attacks will pose little threat. However, using the hyper-strike (X + Square) repeatedly when he's on the ground and dodging him in the air is the best strategy if trying to obtain this earlier.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Wrench Ninja: Blade to Blade.

Vandalize

"Vandalize" is collected by destroying all breakables in the Maktar Resort (not including the Thugs-4-Less jamming array). As with "Smash and Grab", this is most easily obtained by returning to the planet with the Box Breaker, and slamming the OmniWrench in every area.

2B or not 2B hit

Trophy: 2B Hit or Not 2B Hit
Collect the "2B or not 2B hit" skill point Silver

"2B or not 2B hit" is collected by defeating the B2 Brawler without taking any damage. This can be done in any challenge with the B2 Brawler, though "Battle the B2 Brawler" is the most straight forward. This requires very careful dodging and strafing to avoid its attacks, and is best done after returning to the planet later with more powerful weapons that can defeat it quickly before it has a chance to get many hits in (such as the Kilonoids, Megaturret Glove, or Megarocket Cannon), or even when using the Shield Charger to take little damage.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy 2B Hit or Not 2B Hit.

Clank needs a new pair of shoes

Trophy: Clank Needs a New Pair of Shoes
Collect the "Clank needs a new pair of shoes" skill point Bronze

"Clank needs a new pair of shoes" is collected by winning the jackpot in one of the slot machines in the Maktar Resort. This is obtained by hitting the slot machines until three jackpot symbols align, at which point they will give 300 bolts. Many of them will instead land on explosion slots and self-destruct before this is possible. To obtain this, hit every slot machine in the level until it reaches jackpot or explodes; if it does not, restart and try again.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Clank Needs a New Pair of Shoes.

Endako

Destroy all breakables

"Destroy all breakables" is collected by destroying all breakables in the Megapolis. As with "Smash and Grab" and "Vandalize", this is most easily obtained by returning to the planet with the Box Breaker, and slamming the OmniWrench in every area.

Operate Heavy Machinery

Trophy: Operate Heavy Machinery
Collect the "Operate Heavy Machinery" skill point Bronze

"Operate Heavy Machinery" is collected by destroying ten enemies using the crane. The cranes are found along the "Rescue Clank from the thief" route, and features twice. In the first room, five Megacorp Sweeper Bots can be destroyed by dropping the metal box on them. In the second, it is possible to pick up a Megacorp Laser Bot and use its laser to destroy the Sweeper Bots.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Operate Heavy Machinery.

Barlow

Speed demon

Trophy: Speed Demon
Collect the "Speed demon" skill point Bronze

"Speed demon" is collected by completing a hoverbike race with a time less than 2:10. As any race is available, the best to try this is the "Vukovar Circuit" race, where the shortcuts are open and racers will not attack Ratchet. The key is to always use shortcuts, and maintain a speed boost at all times when possible. If boosting is maintained constantly, you do not crash and take all shortcuts, it will be achievable.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Speed Demon.

Notak

Planet Buster

"Planet Buster" is obtained by destroying the floating globe in the promenade area (the "Explore the Promenade" route). The large globe in the middle of the waterway appears early on and impossible to miss. It is destroyed by shooting all of of its orbiting parts and rings, and then firing at the main globe, which can be done easily with the Lancer or any other ranged weapon.

Siberius

You can break a Snow Dan

Trophy: You Can Break a Snow Dan
Collect the "You can break a snow dan" skill point Bronze

"You can break a Snow Dan" is collected by destroying the Snow Dan (a snowman with the face of Dan Johnson), which is found near the start of the area just behind the garage on the left from which MSR enemies appear. Head around the back of the garage and the Snow Dan is found just behind. It can be destroyed with the OmniWrench.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy You Can Break a Snow Dan.

Tabora

Heal your chi

Trophy: Heal Your Chi
Collect the "Heal Your Chi" skill point Bronze

"Heal your chi" is collected by obtaining all one hundred of the desert crystals in Tabora. Using the map, it is possible to travel to any of the areas that are not filled in yellow, indicating areas not yet traveled by Ratchet, to search for remaining crystals. Using the mining vehicle is also a good way to quickly travel around to search for the last few crystals when only a few remain.

Mining facility crystal locations map

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Heal Your Chi.

A map showing desert crystal and Raritanium locations on planet Tabora. The pink dots represent the crystals, the blue dots represent raritanium, and the green dots representing Desert dune monster locations.

Dobbo

Old Skool

"Old Skool" is collected by defeating all enemies in the testing facility (in both the outside path and the path inside), using only weapons from the original Ratchet & Clank, including the OmniWrench, the Bomb Glove, the Decoy Glove, the Tesla Claw, the Visibomb Gun, and the Walloper. Between these, the Bomb Glove and OmniWrench are the best when engaging enemies (namely the Megacorp Troopers) close up, and the Visibomb Gun is particularly useful to defeat the enemies from a distance before engaging them (it is possible to destroy the Megacorp Hover Tanks at a range that their cannons do not reach). Additionally the Decoy Glove is useful for distracting enemies in general.

It is possible to obtain this on returning to Dobbo after completing all missions, at which point the enemy formations will be weaker. Returning with the OmniWrench 12000, improved armor, and a higher Nanotech level are all ways to make this skill points easier to obtain. It is also important not to travel to the Lunar City, as this will reset Dobbo and cause enemies to respawn.

Dukes Up

"Dukes Up" is obtained on the Dobbo orbit moon Lunar City, by defeating the Thug Leader with only melee attacks. As melee attacks from Giant Clank are more powerful than ranged attacks, this is relatively straightforward. The only difficulty is in catching up to the Thug Leader, though Giant Clank's punches are faster than normal walking speed, and it is possible to cut corners as the Thug Leader rarely walks off the roads. Jumping and landing on the Ultra Thugs-4-Less Leader-Mech is also allowed, and is doubly useful to dodge his attacks and those of the supporting Attack-Copters.

Robo Rampage

Trophy: Robo Rampage
Collect the "Robo Rampage" skill point Bronze

"Robo Rampage" is obtained by destroying all buildings on Lunar City as Giant Clank (it is not necessary to destroy the street lamps and benches). The buildings can be destroyed with ease, though they also provide ammo and nanotech refreshes that are key for the bossfight. Therefore, if the aim is to also destroy the Thug Leader in the same run, wait until the Thug Leader's health is low, and then destroy the buildings on the moon before finishing up the mission.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Robo Rampage.

Joba

That's impossible!

Trophy: That's Impossible!
Collect the "That's impossible!" skill point Silver

"That's impossible!" is collected by beating "The Impossible Challenge!" in the Megacorp Games arena.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy That's Impossible!.

How fast was that?

"How fast was that?" is collected by beating any of the Joba hoverbike races with a time less than 2:27. Any race can be used to obtain this skill point, though the "Joba Circuit" is the best to attempt this as it opens up a fork that allows the race to be completed faster. Maintain a constant speed and avoid being destroyed to achieve the time.

Wrench Ninja II: Massacre

Trophy: Wrench Ninja II: Massacre
Collect the "Wrench Ninja II: Massacre" skill point Silver

"Wrench Ninja II: Massacre" is obtained by defeating all enemies on the planet, namely the "Enter the Megacorp Games" route, excluding the arena itself, with only the OmniWrench. The easiest way to obtain this is to return to the planet when the most powerful OmniWrench 12000 is obtained, and when the enemies have already been defeated from the first path, at which point the mission becomes considerably easier.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Wrench Ninja II: Massacre.

Bye bye birdies

Trophy: Bye Bye Birdies
Collect the "Bye bye birdies" skill point Bronze

"Bye bye birdies" is obtained by killing twelve of the docile birds found on Joba. These are small, pink birds that are found either on the ground or perched on the railings. As the birds instantly fly away when Ratchet approaches, the easiest way to obtain it is using the Pulse Rifle to aim from a distance, before approaching an area, and then kill them. It is possible to shoot them in mid-flight as well.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Bye Bye Birdies.

Todano

Nothing to see here

"Nothing to see here" is collected by destroying all four rockets between the landing pad and the dam at the start of the area, they are each visited by the tour guide. The rockets sustain a lot of damage, but can be destroyed if hit enough times with the OmniWrench, or alternatively any weapon.

Try to Sleep

Trophy: Try to Sleep
Collect the "Try to Sleep" skill point Bronze

"Try to Sleep" is collected by morphing 16 mutant test-squirrels to sheep with the Sheepinator. After obtaining it, this is relatively trivial to do: it can be done by returning to the tour near the starting area where the ship lands, and morphing squirrels along the tour's path.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Try to Sleep.

You're my Hero

Trophy: You're My Hero
Collect the "You're my Hero" skill point Bronze

"You're my Hero" is collected by protecting the robot tourists from the mutant test-squirrels around the tour, and preventing any of them from dying. In addition to reaching an area before the tourists do and killing the test-squirrels, a few tourists will lag behind the main group, and then be attacked by squirrels that drop out of the trees. Therefore, it is important to stay behind the tour after cleaning the area beforehand.

The Miniturret Glove can help in protecting stragglers, and the Sheepinator can help in particular against the squirrels as it is guaranteed not to accidentally damage the tourists. The tour will repeat endlessly, so it may be easier to protect them all on a repeat of the tour when all squirrels have been eliminated already, making it easier.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy You're My Hero.

Boldan

No shocking developments

Trophy: No Shocking Developments
Collect the "No shocking developments" skill point Bronze

"No shocking developments" is collected by riding the grind rail (seen in the "Ride the power lines" route) without sustaining any damage. This grind rail does not feature any moving threats, and the only difficulty comes in staying aware of the location of any upcoming the power generators, and avoid any cables connected to them. The power generators serve both as obstacles and for spreading dangerous electricity to any connected cable.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy No Shocking Developments.

Snivelak

Moving Violation

Trophy: Moving Violation
Collect the "Moving Violation" skill point Bronze

"Moving Violation" is collected by destroying fourteen of the flying ships in the skies above the Thug HQ. Easy places to achieve this are by the bridge or by the starting area, as both have a good view of the ships and a nearby Megacorp vendor. The Pulse Rifle is the best weapon to use to obtain this.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Moving Violation.

Damosel

Midtown Insanity

Trophy: Midtown Insanity
Collect the "Midtown Insanity" skill point Silver

"Midtown Insanity" is collected by riding the grind rail segment (the "Ride the train rails" route) without taking any damage. As usual, it is important to plan for and carefully dodge all obstacles along the route. Though the Shield Charger can help with the Protopets on the rail, it should not be relied on, as it is easily possible to take them out with the OmniWrench one by one.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Midtown Insanity.

Safety Deposit

Trophy: Safety Deposit
Collect the "Safety Deposit" skill point Bronze

"Safety Deposit" is collected by protecting all robot civilians in the downtown bank, destroying all enemies, namely the Protopets and Extermibots, in the bank without any of them dying. After defeating the enemies on the ground floor, the enemies on the stairs must be defeated, at which point the skill point is obtained.

It is important to defeat all the enemies quickly, preferably using weapons that are not explosive as they may hit the civilians if close. This is a trivial task with the Plasma Coil or Plasma Storm, as firing it into the bank can destroy all enemies without damaging the tourists. The Lancer can also be used, as it is easy to aim and can easily defeat the Protopets.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Safety Deposit.

Grelbin

Be a Moon Child

Trophy: Be a Moon Child
Collect the "Be a Moon Child" skill point Bronze

"Be a Moon Child" is collected by obtained all 100 of the moonstones in Grelbin. As with "Heal your chi", using the map, it is possible to travel to any of the areas that are not filled in yellow, indicating path not traveled by Ratchet yet, to search empty spots for remaining crystals. After "Find Angela", the mining vehicle can be used to quickly travel around to search for the last few crystals when only a few remain, though it is important to avoid the Y.E.T.I.s.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Be a Moon Child.

General

Nano to the max!

Trophy: Nano to the Max
Collect the "Nano to the Max" skill point Silver

"Nano to the max" is collected by upgrading Ratchet's nanotech to the maximum of 80 points. This is obtained by gaining full experience from defeating enemies, and by obtaining all nanotech boosts. A challenge mode playthrough will likely be required, though it is advisable to obtain all nanotech boosts before reaching challenge mode.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Nano to the Max.

A glitch can occur where if all 10 Nanotech boosts are collected before obtaining all Nanotech upgrades that are obtained by nanomites, the skill point may not be obtained when Ratchet fully upgrades to 80 Nanotech points.[citation needed]

Weapon Envy

"Weapon Envy" is collected by obtaining all weapons, and upgrading those with available upgrades. While this does not including upgrading to Mega or Ultra versions in challenge mode, a few weapons, the RYNO II, the Zodiac, and the Clank Zapper are unaffordable outside of challenge mode anyway, meaning that it has to be completed. It is important to complete all arena, hoverbike racing, and space combat challenges for bolts. The arena will also help with upgrading all weapons.

Nice Ride

Trophy: Nice Ride
Collect the "Nice Ride" skill point Silver

"Nice Ride" is collected by fully upgrading Ratchet's ship, the Star Explorer. This means obtaining Raritanium either from space combat missions or using the mining vehicle on Tabora or Grelbin. Between Tabora and Grelbin, the former is preferable, as Y.E.T.I.s will make it much more difficult to mine Raritanium. However, it is often easier to simply complete the space combat missions. It is best not to purchase customizations to the ship's appearance, as these cost Raritanium while not contributing to the skill point. A challenge mode playthrough will likely be required.

Collecting this skill point in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of Going Commando will unlock the bronze trophy Nice Ride.
