Scattered throughout Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’s Savali Urfdah Mesa level, you’ll find collectibles like Armor Pods, Gold Bolts, Spybots, Lorbs, and CraiggerBears. In this Rift Apart Savali Urfdah Mesa guide, we’ll show you the location of every collectible in the level with maps and screenshots to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Armor changes Ratchet’s appearance and gives you a stat boost whether it’s equipped or not. Gold bolts put new skins on your weapons and unlock cheats. Spybots have intel about planets, but more importantly, will earn you a special weapon when you collect enough.

On your first visit, there are 12 Lorbs, 6 Armor Pods, 2 Gold Bolts, and 1 CraiggerBear to find in Savali Urfdah Mesa.

Like Corson V Nefarious City and Sargasso Outpost L51, you’re free to explore this level once you’ve finished the story objectives. It’s a little easier to collect everything once the story-based pressure is off.


Savali Urfdah Mesa Lorb locations

There are 12 Lorbs to find in Savali Urfdah Mesa. Many (most?) of them are like little puzzles. If you’re stuck, here’s some general advice for reaching Lorbs (and other things in Savali Urfdah Mesa):

  • Rocks to jump on. Circle whatever you’re trying to climb looking for rocks to hop up. It’s the simplest solution, so start here.
  • Ramps. Sometimes there’s a ramp nearby with a speed boosting … thing. See if you can’t ride that up.
  • Cliffs. Sometimes, there’s a cliff nearby that you can jump off of.
  • Switches. Occasionally, you’ll find a series of green switches on the ground. Use ratchet to do what Rivet did with bugs on Sargasso: Ride over them quickly. You’ll unlock whatever you need to at the end.
  • Rifts. Look up there where you can reach for a few seconds, and see if a rift (portal?) doesn’t appear.
  • Some combination of the above. Sometimes, you have to jump up some rocks, blast off of a ramp, leap over a cliff, and catch a portal in mid-air.

This Gold Bolt takes a bit of work to get to. In the north, look for a tree — there is some Raritanium nearby.

Hit all the switches and boosters, and you’ll activate a rift at the end that will lead you straight to the Gold Bolt back in the west. This one unlocks Music Pack 1 for the jukebox in Zurkie’s.
