Rift Apart Gold Bolt Guide
Gold Bolts have been a staple collectible of the Ratchet & Clank series since the very first game, and The Game Awards-nominated Rift Apart continues the tradition of hiding them for players to find. In Rift Apart, Ratchet and Rivet can collect a total of 25 Gold Bolts scattered throughout the dimensions. Each discovered Gold Bolt unlocks a cosmetic or gameplay perk, such as weapons skins or more music for the Zurkie’s jukebox. Finding Gold Bolts will ultimately unlock infinite health and ammo.
Many of the Gold Bolts can be found when visiting planets for the first time, but some require players to wait until later in the game. This guide will tell players the locations of all 25 Gold Bolts in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
