Welcoming Party was the first event in the Bronze Cup Championship, at Battleplex Arena. In this challenge Ratchet was pitted against five waves of Agorian bots & warriors, with each wave becoming more difficult than the last.

The platform; however, had plenty of area to keep mobile while taking on the waves of enemies, even allowing for Hoverboot usage.

This was an excellent place to upgrade some of Ratchet's weapons. Upon entering the stage he was given full health (no matter the Nanotech level) and full ammo. Most of the enemies in the five waves were weak, aside from the Agorian with the shield on the 5th Wave.
