Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is brim with collectibles needing to be found like the Zurpstones. While easy on the surface, they can prove tricky the further you get into it.
After Rivet leaves Sargasso, you will move on to the Scarstu Debris Field for some arena combat. Shortly after completing this, a new side objective will appear calling for your help on Sargasso. The optional objective boils down to helping the Morts with their pet, Trudi. In order to help Trudi, you need to collect purple plants called Zurpstones.
How to Collect All Zurpstones in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart
As all collectathon tasks normally do, this can prove challenging. Primarily because of the Zurpstones you can’t reach and some weird handling. In this guide, we will show you just how to collect all Zurpstones in Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart.
After talking to Mort, you need to head off into the rift on your left. Once you have picked up the few Zurpstones on your way there, hop on a Speedle and collect the rest on the loop ahead. Altogether, you should have 21 at this point. Return to Mort and they will give you a new objective.
Go on foot and collect a total of 30 Zurpstones for Mort. In exchange, you will receive the ranger boots, as well as the ability to fly Trudi. However, you will soon notice the Zurpstones in elevated places can not be picked up. What you need to do is go around the map and pick up the ones on the ground. Do this until you hit 45 in total.
Once this is done, Trudi unlocks a fire breathing ability. Essentially, this is how you can collect the out-of-reach Zurpstones. The ones located on top of machinery and mountain peaks. Once you have all 60, return to Mort and they will reward you with a spybot, which will go towards unlocking the R.Y.N.O 8 and that is all there is to it.
