While we're still pondering on why gold bolts would be at a prison, we uncovered every location of the fan-favorite collectible in Viceron. We promise you won't go to jail if you "borrow" them. Here's how to find each of these in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
Gold bolt 1 in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
From where you first meet Mrs. Zurkon, warp through the security gate by dashing. Then turn right and immediately right again to see another security gate marked 115. Take out the Nefarious guards and go through the security gate on the left. Turn immediately right and you’ll see another gate marked 119. Dash through and you’ll see the gold bolt on the ship.
If you didn’t find the gold bolt the first time around, go to the processing center by following Gold Bolt 3’s directions and go south of the northern section of the map. Once there, use the slingshot on a hovering platform and use the wall running sections to get to the highest platform. Next, just before you head into the vents, jump to the left and over the railing to find a teleporting device. It will warp you to where you need to be. Follow the instructions above now.
Gold Bolt 2 in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
As soon as you get out of your ship, move forward until you reach the first prison cells. Go left and jump on the bouncing platform ahead that’s smoking at the bottom. The gold bolt is in an open cell in front of you.
Gold bolt 3 in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
For this gold bolt, you need to go to the processing center. To get there from your ship, keep going forward and go past the prison cells. As soon as you get into the wrecked prison cell that’s on fire, use the warp area to the left. Keep following the path and take the second warp gate. Then, dash through the force field to get outside.
Use the warp point to get to the processing center. Run forward and go left. You’ll see a few guards in there. Take them out. Use your hoverboots to hop over to the end of the room and turn left. Cross the bridge and go forward. On your left, you’ll see an orange crane. You’ll find the gold bolt below it.
