Ratchet and Clank 3 Up Your Arsenal Walkthrough
Aquatos - Switching Roles
You're clank!! He he he, Clank is so cute. OK, so waddle along, avoiding the lasers and the lights. You have to get the timing of this part down. Hit the red button on the way straight, then run super fast straight to get through the force field before it resets. Jump over the laser to do this.
You get to a box with a banana and monkey. For this section, you shoot bananas and he chases them. First, shoot the banana to the other side of the bridge. He takes the wire over and stands on the red spot there - this makes the bridge go across for you. Next, use the monkey to distract any guards. That is, make him go into the lights so they shoot at him while you sneak past. At the next bridge, you call Ratchet to extend the bridge at junction g-5.
Now you're Ratchet. Turn into a cyclops, then go forward to the force field and wave at them. The instructions will say to tap / hold buttons as they move across your dipslay. If you've played just about any other modern game you'll know what is going on here - you are pressing X, square, circle and triangle in time with the other creature. Think Dance Dance Revolution :)
When you get the timing correct, they agree. Jump across the platforms to the next one.
OK, now it's harder. If there is a "slide" (i.e a long spot) you have to press and hold during the duration of that shape. So again like most dance / button pressing games. This time there are two messages to relay before they let you in.
Now a third guy wants to talk to you. He adds in the four directional keys - up down and sides too. When you get through this, he lifts the bridge for you. If you have trouble here, just keep practicing - this skill is REALLY important for just about any other game you play on your console. You need to know where those buttons are.
Crank is back. He goes on now and walks around the circle with the monkey. You have to again hit the button with the banana so the monkey stands on it so you can get through the force field. When you go, go right through the hallway and gagebots are in there. Hold TRIANGLE and point to a command with left analog stick. There are four in here.
Have them FOLLOW< then go back to the fan. As horrific as it might seem (at leas to me), tell your little robot fans to ATTACK the fan. Luckily they aren't hurt by this. Head forward, and send the moneky into the light to distract it - then avoid the other light yourself while you get to the next fan. Again, send the gatdet guys to ATTACK the fan.
Now get on the platform with your robotic buddies, then tell monkey head to go to the red button to send you upwards. When you are there, use the ENTER command to send your guys into the house for a much deserved rest.
OK, now you're ratchet again. There are laser beams. Jump over the first beams, then step on the red spot in the circle to drop the force field up ahead. Run under the second beam quickly to get through the gate. To the left is another guy to talk to. The "conversation" is much faster with lots of different key strokes. Just keep practicing those skills! He lets you in. Talk to the next guy. You say you want the bridge extended. He does so after 2 tries. Now you hit a button and get into the control room. Clank is in there already. This is Dr. Nefarious's office. Apparently he has the complete clank DVD collection. Clank downloads a decrypted starmap and says that maybe Al can decode it.
Jump down the tube which is very long path in a river of green water. If you jump up you get into the sewer system. Look at the map - the big orange pipe in the center is the fast flowing pipe. You don't have to jump up, though - you'll be there soon enough. At the end of the tube is the sewer dude. He wants sewer cyrstals and will give you bolts. You now spend hours wandering all the sewers, tracking them all down, building up your health (nanotech health 31) and weapons.
We got 57 total in this area.
You see Dr. D. being told by the butler that someone has stole his data disk. The butler says that it was Quark that did it. He tells the Dr. about Q Force. The Dr. wants them slain. "It's on my to do list," says the butler. Quark claims the credit with his plan. His new plan is an attack on Tyrranosis.
