Since the first game in the series, you’ve been able to equip Ratchet with all sorts of weapons and even get some scripted upgrades to change his appearance. Now with Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, For the first time, you’ll also be able to collect new armor sets that not only provide a range of summoner spells for Ratchet or Rivet, but also give you the chance to change their appearance as you please. These armor sets include helmets, chest shards, and boots, for a total of 24 pieces to collect.
Each of the eight sets can be mixed and matched to suit your style preferences and this is in fact encouraged. Unlike many other games that have armor systems that offer specific bonuses, the rewards you get Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is not attached to armor but instead is applied regardless of whether you are wearing that particular set of armor or not. So as long as you can get your hands on the best armor in the game, you can reap the rewards of those specific add-ons without having to actually wear it if you don’t like how it looks. how. However, there are some sets that you’ll want to make sure you hit before others. Here are the best armor sets in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and how to get them.
Without a doubt, this Lombax Praetorian set is well worth hunting down and collecting as soon as possible. This setup, in addition to being named after the races of our two main heroes, has the distinct advantage of increasing the amount of Raritanium you get. If you didn’t know, Raritanium is a limited resource that you spend on upgrading your weapons. Not only is it hard to find, but you’ll have to go through the game at least part two times if you want to collect enough to fully upgrade every gun in your arsenal. You will always be glad to have more of these resources and this suit will make your grinding a lot faster.
This set, like every other set in the game, will give you a 5% buff for the first piece, 10% for the second, and a total of 20% when you have the entire set. All three are bonus for pocket sizes on different planets. The shoes were found in the pocket space on Savali, the chest in Zordoom Prison, and the helmet in Torren IV.
Aside from the Lombax Praetorian set, the Carbonox Advanced armor set is probably the most useful armor to get as soon as possible, with the only candidate being our third pick on this list depending on what you need. What this armor set focuses on is increasing the amount of bolts you earn from killing enemies. The first part you get – the head, chest or boots – increases the bolt count by 5%, with the second one doubling by 10% and a full set doubling again for a total of 20 extra bolts %. Bolts will eventually stop being useful once you’ve bought everything, but the road to that point isn’t short, so this suit definitely helps.
The Carbonox boots are a reward for completing the Bronze Cup at Zurkie’s, which you can do on your first visit. The chest is the reward for defeating Scolo in the Silver Cup at Zurkie’s, it opens after you defeat Cordelia and the helmet is, you guessed it, the Gold Cup prize. This last cup will not appear until the final stage of the game.
If you don’t get hit by the bolt, the Captain Starshield set’s XP bonus will probably hit your alley. Leveling up to the max, thus increasing your HP, will make any tough encounters and boss fights a little easier. Again, collect all three pieces for a great total bonus of 20% extra XP for everything you do.
The Captain Starshield set is considered a reward for completing pocket sizes. Helmets are pocket size on the southeast sector of Savali, chests are in Cordelion, and boots are bag size on the beach in Ardolis.
For a more attack-focused armor set, the Galactic Ranger armor is your only real choice. This armor set only increases your melee damage, but with a full set, can make your wrench one of your deadliest tools. As always, that boost goes from 5% up to 20% when you collect the entire set.
Both the helmet and vest are found inside the pocket size. You’ll basically get an automatic helmet on Sargasso when you import it with Speedle. The vest is available on Blizar Prime, and the pants, which serve as the boots for this set, are also available on Sargasso but are your reward when you transfer 30 Zurpstones to Trudi.
The last four armors are all functionally identical but just for different types of enemies. The Robot Pirate and Robot Disguise armor will make Ratchet and Rivet take less damage from Nefarious and Pirate enemies. Because of how resistant this situation is to damage, and you’ll probably want to avoid getting hit by bullets, these armors are much less of a priority in our eyes.
The Robot Pirate helmet is a reward for completing the pirate trials on Ardolis, the chest is placed outdoors on the East side of Savali on a moving platform and the boots are your reward for being Pierre in the Battleplex Arena on the Scarstu Debris Field.
All Robot Camouflage sets are also found in pocket sizes. The mast is on the Corson V, and the chest and boots are in two pocket sizes on the Sargasso.
Just like the previous two parts, Q-Force armor and Wasteland Gear are pretty boring damage reduction equipment. This time, you’ll take less damage from Goons-4-Less and any native creatures, respectively. The Wasteland Gear is a bit more useful as most planets have native creatures that will attack you, but they are far from the most dangerous enemies in the game. However, there’s no reason not to take 20% less damage if you have the option.
The Q-Force Cowl, or helmet, in pocket size on a mount at Zurkie’s. The chest fragment is located on the Viceron, in a cell on the second floor of the prison. The pants are finally available on Blizar Prime. Once you’re in the alternate version of the planet, head north until you come across an island with armor waiting for you to pick it up.
The Wasteland sets are a bit unique to get as they are all tied to a side quest you get on Savali. Talk to the monk in the center of the map and agree to collect Lorbs for him. Take one for the legs, three more for the chest, and the rest for the helmet. Thankfully, the final set will be marked on your map, making the final hunt pretty easy.
