Ratchet and Clank has always been a series full of great weapons, and one that fans love is the RYNO. This gun is often a secret weapon, unlocked by collecting items in the game world.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is no different, with the RYNO 8 being a special gun that the dedicated players will get their hands on. Read on for info on the RYNO 8 itself, including its stats, plus details on how to unlock the RYNO 8.
How to Unlock the RYNO 8 gun in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart
Ms. Zurkon has a special weapon she can craft for you. This is Rift Apart’s take on the classic RYNO gun from the series, this time called RYNO 8.
You can’t buy this gun, but unlocking it is fairly simple, if a little time consuming. In order to unlock the RYNO 8 you’ll need to collect all 10 RYNO Spybots found on the planets throughout the game.
That might sound a little daunting, but we’ve got the full rundown of every Spybot location below.

Click on the planet you’re stuck on and then follow our map locations and instructions. Most of the planets only have one Spybot, but it’s worth nothing that Scarstu has one to find in the level and one given for completing a certain challenge from the challenge computer.

Corson V Spybot Location
The RYNO Spybot on Corson V is pretty easy to find. If you can’t get through the barrier on the way to the location in the map above you’ll need to keep playing in order to unlock the new dash move.
Ardolis Spybot Location
The RYNO Spybot on Ardolis can be seen in the upper right area of the map above. This island is isolated but can be reached by jumping and gliding from the area Ratchet is in the map image. Once you’ve made it over, head up through to the Spybot location and it’s yours.
Viceron Spybot Location
You can just about see the RYNO Spybot on the map above. As you enter the area you’ll need to double back on yourself and head down through the door in the image below. Keep wandering round these corridors and you’ll find the Spybot.
Scarstu Spybot 1 Location
On Scarstu head up beyond Ms. Zurkon and beyond the rift door that leads to the bar area. You’ll see some crates that can be destroyed. Smash them and you’ll see a platform off in the distance. You can use a grapple point to fling yourself to the platform and get the Spybot. If this grapple
Scarstu Spybot 2 Location
This Spybot on Scarstu doesn’t take any finding, but you will need to complete the Vroom Around Gold Challenge from the challenge computer. Do this and the Spybot is yours.
Savali Spybot Location
The spybot on Savali is actually found on a pirate ship inside a cave system, but to get there you’ll need to head to the location marked by Ratchet on the map above, then head over the platforms and into the cave as seen in the image below. Follow this through and you’ll reach the pirate ship and be able to get the spybot.
Blizar Prime Spybot Location
The Spybot on Blizar Prime isn’t hard to get. You need to take on the optional mission to “Find the Missing Chef.” Do this (it’s clearly marked on your map) and you’ll eventually have to fight off waves of enemies. If you succeed the chef will give you a spybot as a reward.
Sargasso Spybot Location
The Spybot on Sargasso is one of the most time consuming to get your hands on. You’ll need to find all Zurpstones for Mort. Initially you’ll get these on foot, but some can’t be reached by Rivet alone so you’ll need to use Trudi the flying beast to shoot down the zurpstones and complete the challenge.
Torren IV Spybot Location
The spybot on Torren IV is easy to walk straight past unless you’re looking for it. As you can see on the map above, the spybot is found in the tiny little village you come across once you get across from the area you land on. If you see Ms. Zurkon in the village you’ve gone too far. You’re looking for a side alley that will lead you down to the magstrip seen below. Follow this and you’ll enter a cavern and see the spybot dead ahead of you.
Cordelion Spybot Location
The spybot on Cordelion is marked on the map above. To reach it, head through the doorway Ratchet is facing in the image below.
Follow the path once inside until you reach the room below. You’ll see a rift portal. Grapple to this and you’ll have the spybot you were after.
