You must input the code at the pause menu :
Circle, square, circle, square, up, down, left, left.

Gadgetron PDA

Hello Again, now I'm going to tell you how to get the Gadgetron PDA. The only bad thing about the PDA is it costs $250.000, and it really jacks up the price of your ammo(shipping and handling).
O.K, all you have to do is go to the level where you find that fraud, captain Quark after the big ship crashes. Right at the beginning of the level look to your right and there should be some steps. All you have to do is walk up the steps and go the whole way to the end of the magna - boots path. WARNING-It's not easy.
Then you should see a vender with the personal hygenator, a handheld krotchatizer, and the PDA.
I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU OUT PEEPS!!!!

Darth Maul's Lightsaber With Mace Windu's Color

To get the purple two-sided lightsaber, pause the game, press: circle, square, circle, square, up, down, left, left. The game should unpause by it's self. If not, you did it wrong. To get the wrench, go to the secrets menu and at the bottom there should be something called: "Demo Code". Hit it and you get your wrench back. Do the same thing to get the lightsaber back. Also, to get the "Monkeying Around" skill point, you cannot use the lightsaber, you must use the wrench. I've tried like 30 times.

Walk through any wall offline!

In multiplayer, go to any level that has gooey stuff and a hovership. Start off by getting a hovership and go where your practically touching the goo. Get out of your hovership. While your flailing, press triangle to get back in your hovership. You can now walk through any wall! Note: I would recommend switching to first person mode so you can see more inside of the wall in case there is an edge right by you in the wall. You also have to jump to get in the wall.

How to Keep Getting Bolts

On the planet tyhrranosis go to the blue ship next to your ship then go in it. There will be 4 missions keep doing the 4th one use the nitro erupter if theres enemies in piles. At the end of the mission there will be 4 rounds of the litte guys keep runing and lead them into a pile then use the nitro eruptor.keep doing this cheat you will get 2000 bolts each time you do the last mission.if you repeat doing the 4th mission you will have alot of bolts.i have 500,000 bolts because I did this cheat.

add-on to the 'infinint bolts' cheat

for all multi-taskers out there, i completely agree with the guy who made the infinint bolts cheat, but if you have something to do, thats no reason to stop, so try folding a sticky note into a triangle like you would for finger-football, then stick the sharper pointed ends into the space on the controller right at the circle button.

Get past tricky bits in the game!

If you're having trouble say getting past a level or a boss, go to an easy level and upgrade your nanotech and your weapons.
Go back and try again. If you still can't get past, go back to an easy level and upgrade etc. try again.
Then if you fail... well you get the idea.
P.S. I've found the N60 Storm at any level is good at beating bosses quickly
e.g. the Tyrranoid Mother on planet Tyrannos.

Really cool and simple cheat

Alright first turn your ps2 on and choose system configuration.
Then change the time to 3 am and start up ratchet and clank3.
Then go to metropolis,into the first building there and the teleporter that would normally be busted will teleport you to this place called the insomniac museum.
Explore around and see behind the scene pictures and sketchs.
Good luck.

Laser sword

When you are playing the game press the start button and enter the code:o sq o sq up down left left

Kill an enemy and get health

If your in danger or something take out the holo sheild glove and put sheilds around you when an enemy is near. This will suck the energy out of the enemy and give you the health.
P.S. This should work when the holo sheild glove is at lv.5 or higher.

The best way!!

The best way to get through ratchet and clank 3 is to make lots of money for example instead of just running through a world stay for a while and look for bolts then when you have completed the game you can double your bolts even triple them.I once go to times my bolts by 40 so try and get as many bolts as you can so you can get better weapons+armor.

Light saber thingy (RELLY COOL!)

OK:
Pause the game then:
Circle,square,circle,square,up,down,left,left

Hope it helps!

Stuck on Holostar Studios?

I was and this worked. Take out the Lava Gun and spray some enemies.If you die go and try again.Eventually it will upgrade to the powerful Liquid Nitrogen Gun.

Skill Point: Hit The Motherload

In order to get Hit the Motherload, you must collect all 101 Sewer Crysals.
(Gravity Boots neccessary)
Suggested weapon: Qwack-o-ray/Qwack-o-Blitzer
