Nanotech Boosts were rare items that gave an immediate and permanent upgrade to your total maximum Nanotech without having to bring your EXP bar to full. In Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando there were 10 Nanotech Boosts to be obtained that each added one more Nanotech to Ratchet's total. All 10 were required the get the game's maximum Nanotech that was 80, meaning they were necessary for obtaining the Nano to the Max skill point.
- The same shine effect on the Nanotech boost was seen when the New Age Mystic repaired Ratchet's ship on Tabora, only that it was purple.
