Ratchet and Aphelion crashed in Capital City on planet Marcadia and witness a huge battle betwhen the Galactic Rangers and Dr. Nefarious' forces. Ratchet joined the battle and together with the Galactic Rangers, he managed to defeat Nefarious' forces. The galactic president told him that Nefarious has created many new Bio-Bliborators and is going to attack the Bogon and Solana galaxies with them. Ratchet says that he is going to destroy the Bio-Bliborators and then find Clank. Then Talwyn Apogee landed on Marcadia and said that she was willing to help Ratchet to destroy the Bio-Bliborators together. Ratchet and Talwyn downloaded the coordinates for planet Lyx.
Talwyn and Ratchet landed on Aracadia. It's an enormus moon. They had to fight Giant Klunk again and then take out Generator X9, who controlled the force-field who protects planet Lyx. When they tried to detroy it, it transfored into a giant robot. Klunk survived the fight against Ratchet and Talwyn, but is badly injuried.
The Suromnac Asteroid Belt was controlled by Dr. Nefarious and Ratchet had to fight his way through it.
Talwyn and Ratchet landed on planet Lyx. There they met the Smuggler who wanted to trade 3 Lyxian Leviathan Souls with a Gadgetron AntiDoorMissile. They used the AntiDoorMissile to get into Nefarious' base, and inside the base they had to destroy two Nefarious Meches. Then they downloaded the co-ordinates for Thyrranosis.
On planet Thyrranosis, Ratchet and Talwyn had to destroy the Robonoid Factory. They planted EM-76 High Explosives in the core of the factory and escapes it. Before the factory blew up, Ratchet downloaded the co-ordinates for Dr. Nefarious' Ice HQ at planet Koros.
On Koros, Ratchet and Talwyn met Ice Nefarious for the wery first time. Ratchet belived that it was the real Dr. Nefarious, just modified. But later he understood that it was not. Ratchet didnt fight Ice Nefarious, he just talked to him an he throws Ratchet and Talwyn into an underground cave. Ice Nefarious leaves the planet and you have to fight your way out of the cave and follow after him to planet Aquatos.
It's the same base as Nefarious used in Up Your Arsenal, but with a lot of security upgrades. Tawyn and Ratchet gets into the base. When Ratchet has explored the whole base, he finds out that Ice Nefarious is not there. He gets the co-ordinates for The Icecruiser
The Icecruiser was Ice Nefarious' starcruiser. Ratchet & Talwyn went there to defeat him, but Ice Nefarious was not there. But they found a list. At the list, it was written that Ice Nefarious was going to attack Megapolis with his Bio-Bliborators.
Ratchet and Talwyn Apogee went to Megapolis in the Bogon Galaxy. There they saw the destruction of the huge city because of the attack by the Bio-Bliborators. Ratchet and Talwyn destroyed the Bio-Bliborators, to prevent that the entire population got tured into robots. There they also fought the blue ameboids for the wery first time. Ratchet and Talwyn had to destoy 5 Bio-Bliborators on this planet. Then he figured out that Ice Nefarious was back in his Ice HQ at Koros.
Ice Nefarious went back to his Ice HQ at planet Koros. Ratchet and Talwyn followed Ice Nefarious through the level, while they fought his minions. At the end of the level, Ice Nefarious fleed to planet Tetaleria.
