Return to the garage is a mission in Ratchet & Clank. After Clank crash-landed on Veldin, Ratchet drove over to pick him up. Seeing that Clank was in need of repairs, Ratchet took him back to the garage to fix him.


In this first area, head towards a cliff with a green, metal object floating above the gap between the next cliff. This is a versa-target, which is used for Ratchet's Swingshot. To use the Swingshot, jump towards the target, and hold Circle to cross the gap and jump to the next platform. Here, you will find the Combuster lying around. This is a long-range blaster weapon that comes packed with ammunition of up to 40. It is useful in most situations at this stage, though it begins with a slow rate of fire and relatively low damage, though it can be improved with upgrades later.

To equip the weapon, either hold Triangle to open quick select and select the Combuster icon on the left, or use Left on the direction pad. Hold L2 and then aim at the green button on the door across. Fire at it to open the door, then once the door opens to reveal another button in the top right, aim and fire at it to extend the bridge so that you can cross over to the next area.

Here, you will find a blarg trooper that has not seen you yet. These enemies fire ranged but slow laser attacks at you, which you should dodge. They are relatively weak and will go down quickly. Use the Combuster against the blarg trooper, and as you do so, keep an eye out for ammo from any nearby crates. Swingshot across the destroyed bridge, then defeat the blarg troopers here and the ones that spawn from the blarg armored transport ship. Proceed forward, using the Swingshot across two versa-targets to cross the chasm and reach the next section. While fighting, make sure to aim and strafe. While holding this button, jump in either direction to flip, allowing you to dodge the lasers.

Across here, you will find a blarg armored transport firing at you (which Clank remarks is the Model X6Z, also known as "The Dropship of Death"). This ship fires rapid-fire lasers and is deadly, though you can take cover behind one of four rocks to avoid damage. Use the Fusion Grenade and the Combuster to destroy it, taking precaution to dodge its lasers whenever you run out of cover. Use the Swingshot to get across to the final area, which is where the garage is.

You will see a horde of blarg troopers patrolling outside the garage. Head below and fight them all. Along with blarg troopers, more transports will arrive to spawn warbots, ranged enemies that are slightly more durable than blarg troopers. When the dropship attacks, fight the warbots and troopers first while dodging attacks from the dropship before attacking it. In the area behind the garage are several crates with ammo and nanotech in case you are low on any of these items. Try to keep the fight here, so you can take cover behind any rocks and debris, and easily restock on nanotech and ammo. Once all enemies are defeated, Ratchet will inform Grim that it is safe, and the garage door will open for you to enter. Upon entering, the mission is complete, and at this point, a cutscene plays leading you to the next planet, Novalis.
