The RY3NO (or Rip Ya 3 New Ones[1]) is a weapon manufactured by Gadgetron in Up Your Arsenal. It launches eight separate explosive missiles at targets, which upgrade to energy blasts that disintegrate targets instead.

The RY3NO can only be purchased in challenge mode, for 3,000,000 bolts, and can be upgraded to the RYNOCIRATOR with use. The RYNOCIRATOR functions fundamentally differently, instead combining all its blasts into one which destroys all non-boss enemies on screen. It cannot be upgraded to a mega weapon.

The RY3NO is the first iteration of the R.Y.N.O. introduced that can be upgraded.

RY3NO

The RY3NO trophy

In the high-definition re-release of Up Your Arsenal available standalone and in the Ratchet & Clank Collection, the player can earn the silver trophy RY3NO once the RYNO II is obtained.

Characteristics

The RY3NO is a brown weapon with an octagonal barrel. It features eight missiles surrounding its main nozzle, and a left-hand grip. The RYNOCIRATOR appears very similar, though its missiles are much thicker in shape and its previously exposed energy chamber is now covered by a metal plate.

Combat

The RY3NO launches eight auto-targeting missiles which can each destroy any enemy. At V2, this changes to twelve energy blasts which disintegrate enemies instead, which in turn changes to fourteen at V3 and sixteen at V4. As the RYNOCIRATOR, it fundamentally changes, instead combining the energy blasts together after a set distance and destroying all enemies on screen in a flash of white. Any enemy off screen, regardless of proximity to the player, will not take damage from the flash, but may still take damage from the energy blasts themselves if they come into direct contact.

There is no advanced strategy for this weapon, as it is capable of destroying almost all visible enemies with one shot. While its ammo is expensive, it easily destroys most threats, and the player is likely to be very rich by this point, meaning there is little reason to conserve ammo. However, it is almost completely ineffective against bosses at a distance, particularly against Nefarious as it is more focused towards targeting multiple threats than a single one. It is still possible to use this weapon effectively against bosses at close range provided the energy blasts colide with a target before the screen fades to white. It is important to note that by the time the weapon is unlocked and upgraded, there is little in the game that will pose a threat to the player anyway, and so they may choose to avoid purchasing until needing a trophy.
