Ratchet & Clank Wiki

Journey outside the airlock is a mission in Ratchet & Clank, taking place aboard the Blarg Tactical Research Station in Nebula G34. When Ratchet and Clank searched the blarg station, Clank detected a gadget located outside. Since Ratchet could not survive in space without an O2 Mask, it was up to Clank to investigate the airlock alone. Upon doing so, he discovered some Magneboots that Ratchet could use.


Upon arriving on the Blarg Tactical Research Station, from where your ship lands, head left and interact with a small cage leading out into space. This will put you in control of Clank, as the elevator descends to an area in space. As you punch your way through the alien swarmers, you will reach a green button that you must hit to open a door leading inside. Inside is a springbot, which you must throw it to the left. This will allow you to access a higher level, where you will find a gadgebot upgrade chip. Jump down and pick up the springbot again, then hold Triangle to select the powerbot to change it into a powerbot. Throw it at the machine to open the door.

On the other end, you will find a bridgebot. Throw it towards the edge in front to extend a bridge to the platform across. Pick up the gadgebot here, and change it to a bridgebot. Turn left and throw it to create a bridge leading to the platform on the left. Cross it and kill the swarmers, then pick up another gadgebot. Run back and turn it into a bridgebot, then collect the other bridgebot and change it to a powerbot. Run across the new bridge, and power up the machine on the end to head inside.

In here, pick up a gadgebot and turn it into a springbot. Throw it to the wall on the left and bounce up to pick up another gadgebot. After changing it to a powerbot, throw it at the machine to open the door. Pick up the springbot you used and change it to a powerbot to power the machine on the other side, keeping the door open. This will allow you to carry the powerbot on this side to the next room. With two powerbots, use them to power the two machines, leading to a room with Magneboots. After picking them up, a blue bridge will extend, allowing Clank to return to Ratchet and complete the mission.
