Ratchet & Clank HD Trophies
Bolt Commando
Gather All 40 Golden Bolts throughout the game

Top Tip: Near the end of the game, you get an upgrade for your map (can't miss it, part of the story). This upgrade shows hidden areas on the map. Areas with a gold bolt are highlighted green, go to that location for the bolt area. That is why I recommend going for this trophy on your second playthrough, because this map upgrade will make your life a lot easier.

Gold bolts are the collectables in this game, there are 40 spread across all of the levels. They are well hidden and some are hard to reach. You use them to buy gold weapons too, 4 bolts allows you to buy a new weapon out of the 10 available. Here is a list of how many are on each planet (planets that aren't listed don't have any gold bolts on them):


  • Planet Novalis (3 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Ardia (4 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Kerwan (3 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Eudura (1 Gold Bolt)
  • Blarg Station (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Rilgar (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Umbris (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Battalia (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Gaspar (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Orxon (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Pokitaru (1 Gold Bolt)
  • Planet Hoven (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Oltanis Orbit (1 Gold Bolt)
  • Planet Oltanis (4 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Quartu (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Kalebo III (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Veldin Orbit (2 Gold Bolts)
  • Planet Veldin (3 Gold Bolts)

Just have to explore more. It's not like you have to shoot 200 flying rats.
