Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart wouldn't be much without the arsenal of weapons at your disposal. As you progress throughout the game, you'll be able to purchase new weapons from Ms. Zurkon with all of the bolts you collect. Because ammo can sometimes be scarce and because of the wide variety of weapons, I highly recommend switching between several instead of sticking to just one. You'll want to purchase the entire lot to make the most out of combat.

Here's every weapon you can get in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart:

All of your weapons can be upgraded at Ms. Zurkon's, and you'll need Raritarium to do so. You can find Raritarium all across the environment marked off on your map. The more you use a weapon, the more it levels up, meaning you unlock new upgrades to purchase. These upgrades can range from damage buffs, a larger magazine, area of effect, and more depending on the type of weapon. When you unlock every upgrade around an orange section of the tree, you'll get a special bonus for that weapon, too.

After you beat the game and unlock Challenge Mode (basically New Game+), you'll be able to earn Omega versions of weapons, which allow you to level them up to Lv. 10 instead of Lv. 5. Challenge Mode is also where you can purchase the Bouncer and Pixelizer.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is easily a game of the year contender and one of the best PS5 games to release this year. If you haven't been able to play it yet, pick it up and give it a try.
