How to Farm Raritanium Quickly in Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart
To farm Raritanium in Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart, players can fulfil certain steps to seriously increase the speed at which they earn it, and we found an exploit that, though not cheating by any means, makes earning Raritanium very fast and easy.
Raritanium Farming Exploit
If you’re looking to earn Raritanium as fast as possible, our advice is to go to Zurkie’s and battle Francois in the second phase of the Bronze Cup challenge. Every time you beat Francois, you earn a base amount of three Raritanium, but Francois doesn’t get more powerful across the game. With late-game weapons and abilities, you can start the battle and beat Francois in under a minute, earning three Raritanium (and 500 Bolts) each time. Then just repeat this process until you feel you have enough mysterious minerals to tide you over!

How to Find Raritanium
Raritanium is a constant reward throughout the game, found either by beating bosses or smashing the blue crystals that are marked on the map as you get close to them. These crystals appear either in crates or clusters of ore, but either way, simply hit one with your wrench or hammer as you get close to collect it.
How to Get Raritanium Fast
Raritanium can be found much faster by finding the Map-O-Matic, an upgrade that reveals it, along with other collectibles, on your map for anybody to find. We’ve laid out how to get the Map-O-Matic here, and once you have it all the Raritanium clusters will be marked for you to get. Most of them tend to be very easy to find, especially once marked on the map, as you can pin them for a direct location.
The other thing to do is get the Lombax Praetorian armour. This set actually boosts the amount of Raritanium you earn, giving you a free extra ingot every few times you collect some. This rate of increase gets higher and higher as you collect more of the armour set, all the way to a 20% boost. To get the whole Lombax Praetorian set, just head to our guide here.
Of course, Raritanium is best spent on the best weapons! To find that out, just head to our full weapons guide here! Or if you’re looking for more farming opportunities, find out how to boost your bolts over here!
