Intro
Hello, I’m zach93 and this is my first FAQ/Guide. I decided that I should make 
my 
first FAQ on R&C:GC because A) R&C is one of my favorite video game series, 
and B) 
the Boss FAQ came easily to me. Well, that’s enough about me, let’s talk about 
the 
bosses.


Version History
I don’t like all the space this section takes up either, but it needs to be 
here.
Version 1.0- Just put up on Cheatcodes.com
Version 1.1- Fixed a spacing problem, needed to delete “My Arsenal” feature

The Bosses Section
This is where you’re going to find the help you need.

Layout

Boss 
1                                 .5/5                                      
Swamp Monster 
1                                                                  
Planet 
Oozla                                                                         
Just before the Dynamo                                                         
                                                                               
     
                                                                               
     
                              
This is the simplest and easiest boss of all. Just strafe (Hold L2 orR2) and 
shoot 
it. You will most likely have the Lancer already upgraded. You can also use 
the 
Gravity Bomb (Mini-Nuke?) to knock his/her tentacles back so they can’t 
attack, and 
cause damage, too. Get the 4 ammo crates at the side to replenish ammunition. 
Strafe, shoot, and dodge your way to victory. If you die, all I can say is.…. 
try 
again.      
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                            
Optional Boss 1                     1/5
Chainblade                                                                     
     
Maktar 
Nebula                                                                    
Battle 
Arena                                                                     
Reward: Bolts                                                       
   
Yet another simpleton. Whip out your Gravity Bomb/Mini-Nuke while he’s on the 
ground. Use your [Heavy] Lancer when, 1) he flies in the air, or 2) you run 
out of 
Nuke ammo. Theoretically, you could also use the Chopper, but I didn’t. 
Strafe, 
dodge, and shoot.                       
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss 2                            
2/5                                    
B2 Brawler                                                          
Maktar 
Nebula                                                                      
Battle 
Arena                                                                       
Reward: Bolts                                                                
                                                                               
     
          
This guy is just a little bit harder. Strafe around him jumping and shooting 
(with 
the Lancer) and avoiding his shots. Side-flip to jump over the leg-spin, and 
keep 
shooting. Use the Mini-Nuke to inflict serious damage. DO NOT FALL OFF THE 
ARENA. 
If you do, you’re pretty much screwed. Have fun with this one!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss 2                         
2.5/5                                              
T-4-L Leader Personal 
Helicopter                                                  
Planet Endako                                                            
Before Clank’s 
Apartment                                                         
                                                                               
     
   
If you have the Mini-turrent glove, lay a few down and let them do some of the 
work 
for you. Otherwise the Lancer is you’re best bet. There is no other good 
medium 
range weapon right now. Stay behind the barricades, strafe, shoot, and jump 
(over 
rockets and machine gun fire) to sweet victory. Oh, yeah, and be afraid of 
those 
electro-balls.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss 3                            2.5/5                                      
Theif                                                            
Planet 
Siberius                                                                   
Twice on top of trucks, last on launch pad                
                                                                               
     
                                                             
The Thief is an O.K. boss. He’s not too easy, and not too hard. On the Trucks- 
use 
the Lancer or the Seeker/H2KK gun to whittle him down to retreating status. 
And 
repeat. Then, when you get to the missile launch pad, repeat. Try to avoid the 
Megacorp Security Robots, Blade Balls, and ground turrents. Or you could 
Nuke ‘em 
all. You could also use your own turrents or Sythenoids to help out. One 
wrench hit 
will take out the turrents, so swing your wrench if you want to save ammo. 
Also, 
watch out for the shockwave bomb thing he uses. So, strafe, shoot, nuke, 
swing, and 
jump.

Giant Clank Battle 1 (required)          
2/5                                       
T-4-L Leader Mech v.1                                                      
Planet 
Dobbo                                                                     
Moon Level  
                                                                        
This is a Giant Clank Battle. You can use punches, missiles, and bombs to 
destroy 
the opposing mech. T-4-L Leader will use punches, missiles, and atomic energy 
blasts (like from R&C 1!). Use punches a lot at close range, mostly missiles 
at med-
long range, and bombs at med-long range to mix things up. At the start, charge 
him 
and let the fists fly. Not his, yours.
When he runs, chase him shooting missiles. Launch a bomb if you really want 
to, I 
didn’t. When he flies, and the screen tints red, jump. Then, try and land on 
him to 
cause some damage. Then, deck him. The helicopters are a pain in numbers, so 
destroy them when your health drops a little too fast. Also, destroy the 
buildings 
to replenish both health and ammo.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss 3       1/5 w/ Mini/Mega Rocket, 2.5/5 w/o           
Arachnoid                                                                      
     
Planet Joba     
Battle Arena  
Reward: Bolts                                       
                                                                         
Go get the mini-rocket tube. Then, blast away. You can beat him without even 
using 
up all of your ammo. Don’t get too close or he’ll jump to the opposite end of 
the 
cage. When the Nidbots (small spiders) get too much for you, nuke ‘em. Strafe 
and 
jump around the electro-spheres he sends out. If you somehow run out of rocket 
ammo, switch to Lancer. Too easy if you ask me.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss 4                      3.5/5                                    
Megapede                                                                       
     
Planet Joba                                                                   
Battle Arena                                                          
Reward: Bolts                                            
                                                            
I came back after I finished Planet Gorn. First, use the [mini/mega rocket] 
tube to 
bring down the sections of him, and then use the Lancer, Blitz, H2KK, or tube 
to 
destroy the turrent it turns into. You could also nuke it twice. When he gets 
low 
in health, he will stop losing sections when you hit him, but he’ll release 
more of 
those bomb thingies. NOTE: This is #1 of 2 bosses  where I think strafing 
doesn’t 
help.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boss 4                                    
4/5                                       
T-4-L Leader Mech v.2                                                   
Planet Snivelak                                                              
End of Level               
                                                                               
     
Do you remember that mech on the Dobbo Moon? Well, that was Little Boy, this 
is Fat 
Man! Your biggest gun couldn’t even put a dent in that thing, so you are going 
to 
need to use the Plasma turrents conveniently located on top of the residents 
houses. Basically, just shoot and continue.
If you’re a good shot, you can take out the homing missiles on their way to 
you. If 
your not, just shoot Mech until the missiles get close, then shoot them. Jump 
out 
of the turrent when…. A) Mech gets close or B) he flies high. You’re jumping 
out 
because…. Aa) smash the turrent with his fist, Ab) destroy the turrent with a 
laser, Ba) throw a car at the turrent, or Bb) lob bombs at the turrent. 
Really, 
just shoot and continue. NOTE: The R.Y.N.O. II is the only weapon that even 
dings 
him (and still only a little!). NOTE II: This is boss #2 of 2 where strafing 
doesn’t help.

PalmerD1 found another way to beat the giant creep: "Just get the Heavy 
Bouncer, the RYNO II, and the Zodiac and use one or two turrents and the T4L 
Robot is history."

Optional Boss 5                         2/5                                 
Swamp Monster 2                                                        
Planet Oozla                                                                
In the secret area up the gravity boot path             
Reward: Box Breaker
                                       
Basically, just shoot long range weapons while running. Here are her attacks= 
close-
tentacle sweep, big claw smash, bite; long- acid ball. Learn to side-flip and 
back-
flip perfectly so you can be retreating and shooting at the same time. 
Sometimes 
she’ll go under water except for her eye. Don’t waste any ammo. She’ll come up 
near 
you. I have 3 words for you…NUKE! NUKE! NUKE! Nuke her while you RUN! It’s not 
that 
hard really. The biggest danger is drowning in the muck. It may help to use 
the 
Shield Charger or Synthenoids.

Giant Clank Battle 2 (optional)      4.5/5                                
U.F.O.                                                                         
   
Planet Damosel                                                                 
Moon 
Level                                                                      
Reward: Mapper

First of all, I HATE this boss!!! Punch the walkers to get health and to get 
them 
out o the way. Go crazy on the ship when it lands to release more walkers. It 
has a 
force-field around it when it is flying. The walker’s electro-attack HURTS, so 
kill 
them fast! When the mother ship gets down (in health), it will go to a set 
position 
and create an electric field around it. It’ll fire a green energy shot at you, 
so 
walk (strafing) back and forth on the girders and fire missiles and bombs. Go 
back 
and destroy buildings to get ammo (and health). It won’t move. It will, 
however, 
release walkers. Kill them and repeat.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Final Boss (5)            0/5 with RYNO2, 5/5 w/o                     
Mutated 
Protopet                                                                  
Planet 
Yeedil                                                                       
End of game/level          
                                                                               
     
                                                                     
You can do 1 of these things- A) use your RYNO II, B) go berserk and hit him 
with 
any and everything you’ve got, or C) do this…… Equip Tesla Barrier and 
Kilonoids, 
stock up on ammo, and swingshot in to start the fight.
1st Floor- First use ALL of your Bouncer (no alternative!) ammo. Including 
ammo 
pick-ups. Before you run out, the protopet should be able to break the floor. 
The 
Barrier and Kilonoids are for taking care of the little protopets.
NOTE: DO NOT LET HIM EAT THE AMMO CRATES!!! VERY BAD NEWS! He pukes it back up 
as 
his version of the weapon that goes with the ammo in the crate. 
2nd Floor- Your Kilonoids can take care of the troopers, but to help them 
along, 
use the tube.
3rd Floor- Use the tube and kilonoids to destroy the tanks and troopers. NOTE: 
DO 
NOT LET HIM EAT THE TRACTOR BEAM BOMBS!!!!
VERY, VERY BAD NEWS!! Get to ‘em first and use them to damage him.
Then, get back to Bouncer and the Beast. If you get lucky, the Big Pet will 
roll 
over and kill some of the troopers. Hopefully you don’t run out of Bouncer 
ammo. If 
you do, resort to any long-range weapon you have 
(Lancer, H2KK, ect.).
Congratulations!!!
