Gold Bolt 10: When you're in the Fongoid Village, climb to the top of the big staircase that leads to the entrance to the Temple of Zahn. Face the entrance to the temple, and look to your right, off the edge of the staircase. There is a small platform below with the gold bolt on it. Drop down there to get it.

Gold Bolt 11: Return to Zolar Forest, Planet Quantos, after you have acquired the Hoverboots. Go through the level until you're over the broken bridge and you encounter the little purple enemies. Go to the right to find a Hoverboot ramp. Accelerate off it and you'll land on a platform with the Gold Bolt on it.

Gold Bolt 12: When you are rescuing the second child mentioned in the guide (or when you're simply in that area, it's marked by a blue area on the west side of your map with a little green bit sticking out), you'll find a higher grassy platform with a big crate on it. Jump up to this platform and then run al the way to the end of the passageway to find the Gold Bolt.

Gold Bolt 14: Once you've landed on the moon, you'll have to kill 50 enemies to be able to get the Gold Bolt. Simply pull out your pistol and roam the moon shooting any enemies you see. They'll only be small, weak enemies, so it'll be a synch.

Watch out for the red Plasma Containers. They explode when damaged, so whilst they can take down enemies (especially these weaker ones), they can also hurt you if you get too close. Shoot them when enemies are nearby (and you're not) to make use of them. There are ammo crates around the level too, so don't fret about ammo. Once all the enemies are dead, you'll automatically get the Gold Bolt.
