Looking to get the platinum for Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, but having trouble finding every weapon? Here's how to get them all and the Fully Stacked trophy.

There are 20 weapons to collect in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, and you'll have to unlock all 20 to earn the Fully Stacked trophy. But there is more to it than just collecting enough bolts to buy each weapon from Ms. Zurkon.

This quick Ratchet and Clank guide will tell you how earn the Fully Stacked trophy and be one step closer to the platinum for Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. Also, if you're jumping into the series for the first time, don't forget to check out our guide for beginners and our guide on which weapons to upgrade first

How to Earn the Fully Stacked Trophy

Earning the Fully Stacked trophy means finding each weapon in the game, and there are essentially three things you need to do if you intend on acquiring it. Purchase every weapon from Ms. Zurkon, collect all the spybots, and beat the game.

Bolts in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart are only good for buying two things: weapons and ammo. In previous entries, this also had to be balanced with armor, but all armor pieces are collectibles this time around, so your bolts are more streamlined than ever. 

Ammo will almost never cost you a lot, so make sure to buy as many weapons as you can every time you stop at a Ms. Zurkon shop. It's also important that you obtain weapons as quickly as possible, since switching between them and layering on damage is imperative to combat. 

Just make sure to sweep up your bolts after a battle and be on the lookout for smashable crates at all times. Making both of these regular practices goes a long way to earning every weapon much quicker. 

I Spy A Spybot

The Spybots may at first seem like your run-of-the-mill collectible, providing more information on each planet that you may or may not necessarily want, depending on how into the story and setting you are. But finding each one is absolutely imperative not just to getting the Fully Stacked Trophy, but also for getting one of the best weapons in the game. 

The Ryno 8 is an Easter egg machine and the return of a classic weapon for the series. The Ryno is always one of, if not the most powerful, weapons in every Ratchet and Clangame it appears in, and usually needs to be acquired through finding different pieces of a whole blueprint.

In Rift Apart, every Spybot includes a piece of the blueprint for the Ryno 8. Find all 10 Spybots, and Ms. Zurkon will build you the Ryno 8 for free. If you're having trouble finding them, you can look at our guide for how to get the Sargasso spybot, which is a little trickier than the others.

Also, don't forget to do the side mission on Ardolis the first time you arrive there. It'll reward you with a Map-O-Matic, a gadget that reveals every item on each map. It is, for obvious reasons, very useful for finding all collectibles, including Spybots. 

Get Ready for Challenge Mode

The last thing you'll need to do is simply beat the game. There are two weapons that will only be made available to you after you've beaten the game and then entered into a new game plus, or Challenge Mode, as it's called in Rift Apart

The Bouncer and the Pixelizer are both only available once you've entered into Challenge Mode. However, anyone who purchased the deluxe edition of Rift Apart or pre-ordered the game will have access to the Pixelizer from the start. Though, you still need to beat the game to get the Bouncer.

---

That is everything you need to do to acquire the Fully Stacked trophy in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. You can get the Ryno 8 and all other weapons on your first playthrough, so don't expect it to pop until you've gone into challenge mode and picked up the final two weapons.
