Getting the Skill Point Careful Cruise without actually going through the water section
You can this Skill Point, which normally requires going through Dreek's Fleet's water section without getting hit, much more easily; this trick requires you to have already completed the path once and therefore unlocked the transport that brings you back to your ship: make sure to have full HP and to still have Nanotech Boxes at the end of the path (to be 100% sure, leave the planet and go back); go back to the water path, press the button that starts the timer, progress until the first obstacle, get hit, go back to your ship, get the transport that brings you at the end of the path, where the Code-Bot used to be, pick up a Nanotech from the Boxes that are around there, get near the water and you should get what is arguably one of the hardest Skill Points in the first R&C with minimal little effort.
This likely works because the game checks if you triggered the first switch and then if you have full HP at the final checkpoint of the water section, so, by picking up Nanotech right before reaching that point, you trick the game into thinking you went through the whole thing and got to the end with full HP.

Avoid Starship Fight in Drek's Fleet Level
First you must beat the game once. The start a new game with all of your weapons, health upgrades, ect. Then input the 30 second invincibility cheat and play to the Drek's Fleet level. Go through the electrified water section first and get past with one or no hits. At the very end of this section where you get the Code Bot, make sure the cheat is turned on, get the health crate in that room and jump into the electrified water. Don't worry, you won't die. Stay in for a few seconds and jump back out. Continue with the level and you'll notice that all of the ships are now white. The cannons on the the ship with the magna boot part don't fire anymore. So now you can easily get past that without getting in the starfighter. DO NOT DIE BEFORE GETTING TO THE CANNONS OR ELSE THE GLITCH WILL BE TURNED OFF!!!

Glitch makes the Impossible Challenge WAY too easy...
All you have to do is make sure you get the Decoy Glove from the vendor on the Desert Planet Barlow: Vukovar Canyon. YOU MUST HAVE THE DECOY GLOVE FOR THIS TO WORK, and I highly recommend making sure it has full ammo, too.
When you have the Decoy Glove, go to the Megacorp Games and start the Impossible Challenge in the Battle Arena. Fight through the first 5 levels of the Impossible Challenge any way you want. I recommend using only one type of weapon to do it and the reason will become clear in a moment.
After the first 5 levels a Cage Match will start. Jump up into the cage area and defeat all the enemies in first 4 levels of the Cage Match any way you want- once again, using one weapon is recommended.
HERE COMES THE IMPORTANT PART:
Now, during Round 10 (the last round before you fall back onto the floor after the Cage Match), defeat all but one or two of the enemies. Once you have done this, SWITCH TO THE DECOY GLOVE and throw one or two decoys out. The last one or two enemies you have left alive will go after the decoy(s). Defend the decoy(s) at all cost and kill any enemies left. If you do this successfully, you will leave a decoy inflated on the side of the cage where you just fought the Cage Match, and then you will fall back down to the platform below for round 11.
Guess what? The enemies will COMPLETELY ignore you, and they will gather underneath the spot where the decoy was left in the cage during the Cage Match! You can now run around and smash all the ammo crates to refill any ammo you used, and then if you want you can use the wrench in first person mode to kill the enemies gathered under the decoy. This will work for rounds 11-15.
Round 16 starts another Cage Match. Your Decoy will disappear. Defeat all the enemies for Rounds 16-19 any way you want, then defeat all but 1 or 2 during Round 20. Once again, leave a decoy or 2, defend the decoy(s) (make sure it stays there) and kill the last enemies alive again. You'll fall down to the platform for Round 21 and your decoy(s) will stay in the cage up above. Once again, the enemies will ignore you and gather under the decoy(s)!
Repeat this technique for the rest of the Impossible Challenge and you will win easily every time with plenty of ammo and more than likely very little damage.
THINGS TO REMEMBER:
1. Be careful setting out your decoys during the levels where the lava rocks hurl from below. The rocks can and will destroy your decoys so you might want to kill the enemies down to 1 then plant 2 or 3 decoys before falling back down to the platform.
2. Cage Matches happen every 5 levels after every 5 ground match levels. (I.E. Ground Levels are 1-5, Cage Match is 6-10, etc.)
3. Don't forget to plant your decoy(s) on the sides of the cage during the last Cage Match round before falling back down to the platform for a ground battle! If you forget the enemies will go after you and you're on your own again!
This is officially a cheat/bug because everything you leave in the Cage after the Cage Match is supposed to disappear. Turns out things in the cage do not disappear *after* each Cage Match- only *before* them! I discovered this entirely by accident- Good luck!

Pass through walls in Insomniac Museum
A glitch in the controls of the Snivelak car allows you to pass through walls:
First enter the car and collide head on with a wall,
Press and hold X L1 R1 and LAnalog (down), the front of the car points up and raises slightly, then moves into the wall and drops down (if not release X then hold it again)
Next release L1 and you pass through the other side of the wall.
This gives access to a few sections of the museum that usually can't be reached one of these voids is behind the curved wall near the car.
Walk through almost any wall
Be at any Planet Where your Ratchet walking. Note: You must have the decoy gun before doing this. Stand in front of the wall you want you want to go through. Take out your decoy gun and then lay on as close as you could get one on each side of you with out making it fall through the floor. You have to be facing away from the wall when doing this. If done correctly the screen should be shaking. Now lay a decoy directly in front of you which should also be between the other two. What you just did was have the decoys force you through the wall.

On Planet Bolden: Silver City, ride the power lines to the construction site, but don't jump on the first steel beam. Instead make sure you're on the left power line and hit the transformer. As you hit the transformer, press jump, and execute a heliglide over to the left where the city is. Now make your way to the street and follow it to the end to find a lone building towards the South of the map(you pass underneath this when continuing with the power lines). Make your way either left or right around the building. At about half way, try to walk through the building and make your way to the center (you may have to jump through). Start to jump, and the immediately center the camera (Press L1 and R1 at the same time) because you'll have to take out a several Thugs. There will be two teleporters in the building, one that goes back to the ship, and one that goes to the Insomniac Museum. Take the one to the museum and enjoy!

Insomniac Museum - Non Glitch Method
This method of getting to the Insomniac Museum is one of two ways that Insomniac intended for people to find the museum. The first way is to beat the game with the appropriate level of completion. The second way is to be at the right place at the right time, as described below.
The right place is on the planet Boldan, in the courtyard near the big clock, on the top of the fountain. The right time is 3am by the PS2 clock which should also be 3am as shown on the big clock mentioned above.
So, into the specific details: I suggest you try this after you have unlocked the electric fence and cleared out the enemies in the two courtyards that are to the left once you pass the electric fence. You don't want to get shot while trying this! The fountain that you need to stand on is closest to the clock and it is the only fountain in the immediate vicinity. Don't confuse this with the pair of fountains in the opposite courtyard. To get there from your ship, go through the deactivated electric fence, up the walkway and turn left. Walk to the end, into the room that you opened with the switch that has two stairways leading up and out of it. Take the left stairway and the fountain will be straight ahead of you in the courtyard. There is no water running in the fountain; it is just a stack of what looks like bird fountains of decreasing size. Stand in the center of the transport pad in the top of the fountain when the clock nearby chimes 3 (at 3am) and a message will appear saying ''Press Triangle to go to museum'' or something similar. Press Triangle and you will transport to a hallway with some bad guys. This is the entrance to the museum.
There has been some controversy over how exactly to do this, people having various problems, etc. so I think more detail will be of use. Obviously if your PS2 clock is set right, go there at 3am, duh. I have verified that this works if you are in the center of the transport pad while the clock is chiming 3am. I do not claim that it works any other time outside of the few seconds while the clock is chiming. In fact I went back a few minutes past 3 and the transporter did not work at that time. I also do not claim that this is the only time that works. However, I have personally verified that this works when the PS2 clock is at 3am PST, and many others have corroborated this.
If you do not feel like waiting until 3am, do the following:
Reset PS2 clock to 2:55am and your time zone to PST. Now, load the game and get to the abovementioned fountain before the clock strikes 3. Follow the rest of the directions above. If you need more time set the clock earlier than 2:55.

Inferno Mode / Rift Crossover in Arena Challenges
Once you finish an arena challenge at Annihilation Nation, if there is an Inferno Mode crate laying around, you can trigger it after you win the challenge, and you will still have the effect in the next challenge. The same thing happens with the Rift Inducer/Rift Ripper's votrexes; if you shoot some after the challenge is over (but before the screen goes black) they will still be there when the next challenge starts. This is a good way to do some damage without having to use any ammo, and doing this with an Inferno crate can make single-weapon challenges much easier; as long as you don't try to fire your weapon, you can do them entirely with the wrench. (This does not seem to work with the Suck Cannon/Vortex Cannon challenge; when I tried it, I got a "Out of enemies to use for ammo" message and lost in Round 2.)

Allows you to pass through any wall, forcefield, etc. You need the megaturret (miniturret works too but megaturrets work much better). Place yourself against the wall facing the opposite of it and place very closely 1 to your left and 1 to your right. If done correctly, the screen will start to shake. Now place a megaturrent infront of you very closely and you will either have gone through the wall or the screen is violently shaking. If it is shaking then try to move through the wall by running or charge boots.
