The RYNO II was an upgrade to what was previously considered the most powerful missile launcher in the galaxy. With a high fire rate and a ton of autotracking, the RYNO II would make short work of anything in your path.
— RYNO II's description, found in the "Help" menu, GC

The RYNO II is a weapon manufactured by Gadgetron in Going Commando. It is the second iteration of the R.Y.N.O. series, and is a rapid-fire missile launcher which fires immensely powerful missiles at enemies.

The RYNO II can be purchased from the Gadgetron vendor on Barlow for 1,000,000 bolts, but due to its price, is not likely to be purchased by the player until much later. Unlike other Gadgetron weapons, it is not unlocked for free with a Ratchet & Clank save. It cannot be upgraded in any way. Upon reaching challenge mode, the RYNO II can be purchased from MegaCorp vendors as well as Gadgetron's.

Now it's time

The Now it's time... trophy icon

In the high-definition re-release of Going Commando available standalone and in the Ratchet & Clank Collection, the player can earn the silver trophy Now it's time... once the RYNO II is obtained.


The RYNO II is a long, tubular blue and red missile launcher. It has eight nozzles which rotate when fired, similar to a gatling gun (though it will only rotate one barrel at a time after firing).


The RYNO II is an auto-targeting weapon which fires missiles rapidly at targets. It has a good amount of ammo for what it does at a relatively low price, and unlike other RYNO weapons, can be picked up in ammo crates. It is the most powerful weapon in the game, as its missiles individually are extremely strong with a decent blast radius and can be fired at such a rate that they will instantly destroy any group of enemies. The RYNO II is most useful for making short work of bosses, and will easily defeat most before its ammunition is even depleted. For instance, the end boss can be defeated in at least 50 blasts of the weapon.

The RYNO II cannot be upgraded, though it can be modified with the lock-on mod. This mod provides little value for the player, as it is already easy to aim, and does excellent damage on its own.
