Spybots are a collectible found in Rift Apart with 10 in total. They are small robots closely resembling infobots which are used by the Resistance, acquired by both Ratchet and Rivet on their adventure.
Spybots are found in most locations in the game, though two are found in Zurkie's, Scarstu Debris Field. A different task must be completed in order to obtain it. Spybots also have recordings from Ms. Zurkon detailing some of the history of the planet as it is in Rivet's dimension. Obtaining all of them allows the RYNO 8 to be complete.
The recording from the spybots can be played on the Collectibles menu.
Collecting a spybot will unlock the bronze trophy Planning Some Destruction; collecting all and trading them for the RYNO 8 will unlock the silver trophy Aim to Misbehave.
