We've got the 'noids on the run.

X12 Endgame was one of the Galactic Ranger missions of Operation: DEATH VALLEY on Aridia. The Galactic Rangers, with help from Ratchet and Clank, led an all-out assault on the Tyhrranoids' base.[1]


The mission was possible after Ratchet, Clank and the Galactic Rangers had reclaimed the valley, as it allowed them to chase the remaining Tyhrranoids through the tunnels to their base.[1]

Mission objective

The primary mission objective was given to Ratchet and Clank as: "The Tyhrranoids are now falling back from the valley with the Rangers in hot pursuit. Push through the tunnels and capture the enemy base by wiping out all ground forces and defensive turrets."[1]

Pushing through the tunnels

If somebody could push through those tunnels, we could launch a direct assault on the enemy base.

Two Galactic Rangers helped Ratchet and Clank pick of the Tyhrranoids retreating into the tunnels. The Tyhrranoids deployed Tyhrranoid Saucers to cover their retreat which Ratchet and the Galactic Rangers had to defeat.[1] After entering the large room inside the tunnels, three Three-Eyed Tyhrranoids hiding behind pillars revealed themselves and fired. After eliminating them they moved on to the bridge leading to the Tyhrranoid base.[1]

At the bridge the Galactic Rangers took cover behind two blocks as Three-Eyed Tyhrranoids and Ultra Mecha-Tyhrranoids attempted to crosse the bridge. They were destroyed by Ratchet and the Galactic Rangers. With the path clear the Galactic Rangers pressed forwards to the next set of covering blocks on the other side of the bridge.[1]

After crossing the bridge themselves, Ratchet and Clank found a Tyhrranoid Dropship blocked their path to the Tyhrranoid base. Ratchet destroyed the Dropship leaving the Tyhrranoid base wide open to an attack.[1]

Destroying the base

The enemy base is wide open. Time to finish the job.

The Galactic Rangers remained in the tunnel opening while Ratchet and Clank used the cover scattered around the Tyhrranoid base and took out the two Gatling Turrets, successfully completing the operation.[1]


Inform command that Outpost X12 has been secured.

With the mission complete the Galactic Rangers informed command that Outpost X12 was now secure. Ratchet and Clank left the planet and went back to the Starship Phoenix.[1]
