The PSI Cadet Rank is Razputin's current rank in Psychonauts. On the road to becoming a Psychonaut, Raz will need to consistently "rank up" in order to earn new psychic abilities and purchase most items at the Main Lodge. The highest rank Raz can achieve, without cheating, is 101.
There are a number of ways Raz can increase his rank:
- Collecting nine PSI Cards and purchasing a PSI Core at the Main Lodge, then redeeming them all at Ford Cruller's Sanctuary.
- Finding PSI Challenge Markers.
- Collecting Figments worth a total of 100.
- Finding eight Scavenger Hunt items will promote Raz four ranks. Finding the remaining eight items will promote the player an additional four ranks.
- In Coach Oleander's Basic Braining, there is a PSI-Punch target practice course that will promote Raz one rank if he chooses to complete the optional challenges.
- By sorting out all the baggage in a mental world.
- By entering the cheat code to unlock all of Raz's powers and upgrades, Raz will automatically be set to rank 100, allowing players to technically go beyond the normal level, but without reward.
