There are 6 secrets to find on Viceron:
- 3 gold bolts,
- 1 spybot,
- 2 armor pieces.
Additionally, you can find 1 Craiggerbear.
Gold bolt 1
You can get the gold bolt during the first part of going through the prison, as the bolt is located in the southern part of the map. As you explore the prison, you will reach a point where you will have to use the Phantom Dash to get through active force fields.
In the area with the protective barriers, head as far east as possible and you will find a bolt that is not guarded in any additional way.
The spybot is located in the ventilation shafts above the processing center where Ratchet and Kit are held in the initial part of the mission. Don't enter the building, head east instead. You will reach the place in the picture where, after bouncing off the first trampoline, you will have the option to perform a wall run.
After performing a wall run, you will reach the place from the picture. You can smash the fan by holding down the L2 trigger and pressing the square button. This will allow you to enter the ventilation shafts.
Examine the ventilation shafts. There is a spybot in one of them.
For this secret, you must leave the ventilation shafts where the aforementioned spybot was and explore the interior of the processing center. The plush Craiggerbear will be next to one of the walls, as shown in the attached picture.
Gold bolt 2
The chance to get the golden bolt appears after you leave the processing center, above which you found the spybot. Defeat the enemies and explore the eastern part of the square before heading to the building to the west. Head towards the hanging container.
You will find the bolt behind the container, on a small circular platform adjacent to the water.
Armor Piece 1 - Q-Force Chest
The armor piece can be found shortly after entering the West Wing of the prison and receiving the mission objective to shut down the reactor. You don't have to do this task right away. Once you defeat the nearby enemies, check out the southern part of the prison block and use the crates to climb up to the higher level.
You should be able to locate the collectible near the prison cells without issues. The items in the Q-Force set weaken the Goons' attacks.
Gold bolt 3
The gold bolt is also located in the west wing of the prison. It's inside one of the cells to the north on the upper level, specifically the one that contains a group of Morts. Initially, you won't have access to the collectible, because the vertical barriers prevent you from entering the cell even with Phantom Dash.
You will need to return to this location once you have deactivated the reactor by completing the main mission objective and thus opening all of the cells. Don't rush after Ratchet and Kit and instead investigate the (empty) bolt cell.
Armor Piece 2 - Lombax Praetorian Chest
Once again, you need to start in the west wing of the prison. You can find a Pocket Dimension near Ms. Zurkon.
There is an obstacle course to overcome, as expected from this type of location. In this particular case, it involves riding a Speetle (make sure to use the accelerator!) and running on walls. Additionally, you may be forced to pull yourself to an interactive rift or use the ejector.
The armor piece you are looking for is on the final stable platform. As a reminder, items in the Lombax Praetorian set slightly increase the amount of raritanium you obtain.
