The ultimate weapon in every Ratchet & Clank is the RYNO — a massive bazooka that wrecks everything in sight. Almost every game in the series has the RYNO, and you always have to work to unlock it. This is the only weapon you can’t buy from a vendor, and if you want to earn the ‘Fully Stacked‘ trophy, you’ll need to get the RYNO.
In Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, the RYNO is sold by the new Ms. Zurkon vendor. You’ll just have to track down and collect 10 Spybots spread out across the galaxy. Generally, there’s one Spybot on each planet, and you’ll only be able to collect them all right before the end of the game. But, there is a NG+ and a harder difficulty in Ratchet & Clank that you can experiment with once the story is over. You’ll be able to bring your entire arsenal with you, and the new mode even includes two bonus weapons you won’t find on a normal playthrough. Getting all 20 weapons unlocks the ‘Fully Stacked‘ trophy, and the RYNO is easily the trickiest to get.
