The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
Difficulty is a setting which many games use to determine how hard the player will find the game. Difficulty settings often decide how much damage the player's weapons cause, how much health the player loses upon getting hit (or how much maximum Nanotech the player starts with), how much damage the enemies' weapons cause, and how much health the enemies have.
There are five difficulty settings in order of difficulty:
Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty
There are three settings in order of difficulty:
Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
Secret Agent Clank
Like Size Matters, Secret Agent Clank has also two harder modes of gameplay: Challenge and Hardcore modes.
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
There are three difficulty settings in A Crack in Time. When you finish the game for the first time you will unlock, aside from the usual Challenge Mode, a fourth difficulty option: Hardcore.
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus
Ratchet & Clank (PS4)
There are three difficulty settings in addition to Challenge Mode.
Upon starting a new game, you are required to choose a difficulty. Upon starting a new Challenge Mode game, you can also choose which difficulty to play Challenge Mode in, which adds upon Challenge Mode's already increased difficulty.
