The Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart best armor sets will help you survive and thrive across the multiple dimensions you visit over the course of the game’s narrative. Each armor piece is modular in the game so they can be swapped with other sets and even edited by color.
When you collect armor you’ll also get access to special bonuses that are attached to the sets, offering buffs to resource gathering, damage and survivability.
In this guide, we’re going to run through the most important bonuses in the game and show you how to find the corresponding armor pieces. Read on for Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart’s best armor sets.
The most important set in Rift Apart is the Carbonox Advanced set. Every piece will improve the amount of Bolts you gain from enemies. You’ll get +20.0% to all Bolts gained when you have the full set, which will help you pay for the game’s many guns.
Carbonox Advanced Boots
Complete ‘A Grunthor Named Sue’, which is the final challenge of the Bronze Cup at Zurkies, accessible when you first visit the arena.
Carbonox Advanced Chest
For the chest piece you need to defeat Scolo as part of the ‘Revenge of the Seekerpede’ challenge, the final bout in the Silver Cup at Zurkies. This will be accessible after you complete the Cordelia level.
Carbonox Advanced Helmet
You have to complete the ‘Twice as Nice’ challenge to get the final piece. This is a boss-rush battle and the final part of the Gold Cup at Zurkies. You’ll get access once Rivet and Ratchet meet up at Zurkies in the endgame.
Another important set in Rift Apart is the Captain Starshield set, which lets you earn extra XP up to +20%. This is great if you want to hit Level 10 before the story ends and grow your health pool. If you’re struggling in combat, collecting some of these parts early can be a great help!
Captain Starshield Helmet
On the south-east rim of the Savali map, the helmet is inside of a Pocket Dimension, where you have to dash along the walls to reach it.
Captain Starshield Chest
On Cordelion you’ll have to escape to another dimension using a Blizar crystal to escape a monster. The second time this happens, the piece is in a Pocket Dimension nearby. Keep in mind that all Pocket Dimensions appear on your map when you get close, so they’re tricky to miss.
