INTRODUCTION - G0300 =============================================================================== =============================================================================== Hello! This is my first Metroid project ever, and a debut FAQ for Wii platform. I hope you'll like this guide, as I'll try to make your journey through the game to be the least painful. Here's explanation of some things: - Spoiler issue - I'm the player of the game, just like you (who is reading this guide) are. First time I've played through the game was completely by myself - therefore nothing was spoiled for me. All the story elements that were supposed to surprise me had such effect. Hence why I will not include any spoilers (except names of places and NPCs you must address to continue the storyline). =============================================================================== =============================================================================== 04.) VIDEO REFERENCES - G0400 =============================================================================== =============================================================================== For those who require help in getting thru the game further than what the walkthru covers, here's something you could definitely use. I've made a video playthru of the entire game from start to finish. It's available here: http://www.youtube.com/SplitPlaythru =============================================================================== =============================================================================== 05.) WALKTHROUGH - G0500 =============================================================================== =============================================================================== The official names of enemies were provided by SolidHaseo. CHAPTER 01 ========================================================= CHAPTER 01 WLK01 GAME BASICS CHAPTER 01 ========================================================= CHAPTER 01 Enjoy the introduction scene. After Samus dons Power Suit, it's time to get accustomed to controls. Hold Wii remote sideways - your left thumb will be controlling Dpad and A button, while your right tumb will be controlling buttons 1 and 2. Dpad is used to move Samus around. A is used for Morph Ball mode. B is used for looking around when in 1st person view mode. 1 is used for shooting Power Beam. 2 is used for jumping. CHARGE BEAM - Press and hold 1 until fully charged and then release to shoot a charged beam at the glowing ball. Repeat the exercise on two glowing balls. MORPH BALL - With the Wii remote held sideways, press A. This will cause Samus to morph into a ball. NORMAL BOMB - Press 1 while in Morph Ball mode to release a bomb. You can lay up to three bombs at once (or five at once if you morph ball at the moment when Samus' beam is fully charged). DEACTIVATE MORPH BALL - Press A while in Morph Ball mode to return to normal, standing position. Now you need to get inside the glowing square in the room. Doing so will cause you to fall into a pit. KICK CLIMB - Press and hold Dpad toward a wall and press 2 with good timing to consecutively kick your way up. Make sure not to change direction with Dpad. ATTACK - Press 1 to fire your beam at crab-like enemies. Keep killing them to move onto next part of the training. SENSEMOVE - At the right moment, press Dpad just before being hit. Use Sensemove while pressing 1 to quickly reach full charge. Dodge Zebesian's beam a couple of times and you're done. CONCENTRATION - Hold Wii remote vertically and press and hold A to replenish your missiles. You start the game with 10 missiles. SEARCH VIEW - Point Wii remote at the screen and press and hold B to look around. Zebesian is found on the ceiling in far right corner. When you do so... LOCK ON - Press and hold B and point at your target to lock on. NORMAL MISSILE - Press A and release immediately while locked on. Zebesian will fall down from ceiling and engage in combat. Use the basics you've learned and shoot the baddie with couple of charged beams. Once sufficiently weakened, jump on its head. Once the enemy is grounded, you can perform... LETHAL STRIKE - Press Dpad toward a downed enemy while pressing 1. Once fully charged, you'll launch a strong attack. Whoa... POWER BOMB - Press A to change into morph ball, then press and hold 1 and release when fully charged. PRO-TIP - It is possible to sensemove while in 1PV. As you're about to get hit, shake Wiimote and Samus will jump out of harms way. CHAPTER 02 ========================================================= CHAPTER 02 WLK02 MAIN SECTOR GUIDE, PART 1 CHAPTER 02 ========================================================= CHAPTER 02 W(est) means go left. E(ast) means go right. N(orth) means go into background. S(outh) means go into foreground (that is, move Samus towards the screen) Okie dokie, we're at the Bottle Ship, which I'll call BS for short. When the scenes are finished, you can't move. Wut? I call that PIXEL HUNT. Point Wii remote at the screen and search around for something interesting in order to proceed. The point of interest is on the ship in front of you - look for the emblem on its nose. To examine stuff while in this mode, press and hold B on things of interest. Afterwards go E into next area (man, I really hate it that areas don't have names like they did in Prime series), or go W to return to your ship if you want to save the game. Screen will shake momentarily, then go N. It appears you're not alone on BS, there's six other people who appear to have business here. PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the door, hold B to lock on, and press A to shoot a missile to open the path ahead. For some incredibly stupid reason, Samus decides she wants to tag along with Adam's orders and decides not to use any of cool upgrades she collected on Zebes. They must be authorized first. Go N into next area, then E into next area. Some annoying Reo (enemy resembling a fly) will ambush you on the bridge and make Samus drop down from the ledge, where Reo's buddies are having a party. Make a mincemeat out of them with your trusty Power Beam. After you dissipate all enemies, your minimap will beep a couple of times and a blue dot will appear inside it. This means that the room you're in contains some kind of power-up - those are: 70x Missile Tank 16x Energy Part (4 energy parts award one Energy Tank) 6x Accel Charge 5x Energy Tank 3x E-Recovery Tank Once uncovered in this way, the item you have not yet collected will remain marked on your map (which you can open with +). You cannot collect this particular item yet, cos you need to get Normal Bombs auth'd. Blue dot will also appear on the map if you scan the area and happen to lock on collectable item. K, so how do we get out of here? Look towards the right for a grating with some type of switch on it. Go to 1PV and shoot the switch repeatedly until it charges or deliver a charge beam into it to get the grating up a bit. Go morph ball, roll under the grating and jump up. Continue going up, getting rid of two Geemers (foe resembling a spiked crab) and several Reos, until you reach the door leading E into next room. This is a dark corridor, so be careful as you advance as there are Skrees plastered on ceiling that will get a drop on you when you get close. When you get past them, turn N into next area. Three Reos will emerge from W door and attack you, so promptly delete them, then take the door they attacked from. Hm, a loo, but nothing of interest here, so return to previous room. Go up the stairs, and examine the terminal to open N door. In order to operate the terminals, all you need to do is stand close to them. In next room go N and step into broken elevator shaft. Kick climb your way up and go N to next room. Doors will lock behind you - defeat four Geemers and go N to next room. Advance N across the bridge, kicking off four Geemers, then take W exit to next room. A large elevator area, with six Geemers presiding here. Get rid of them and then work your way up the ledges to top of the room. At the top take N exit. You have found game's first NAVIGATION BOOTH - NAV-B 01. These allow you to replenish your health, restore missile ammo (like you need to) and open path forward. Just stand on the platform and your game will be saved. Exit N into long corridor, and keep going until a scene kicks in. BOSS BATTLE - BRUG MASS Listen for boss emitting a sound that resembles beeping, as this telegraphs boss using tentacle smash up to four times in your general direction (sometimes it'll go after you allies). Use sensemove to avoid being hit (you can just tap directions on Dpad). Its weak point is obviously the eye, but how can you hit it? Once Brug stops the current slapping business, go 1PV and lock on boss' eye with B for a scene. Your allies will now use freeze guns... USE OF NORMAL MISSILES HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Aaand you get to shoot missiles at last. Remember, 10 missiles is your starting count - to use a missile, you need to press A while locked on. You can shoot the eye in two ways - either you wait for Brug to bury its tentacles into the ground and start to grovel for few seconds and then missile the eye, or you deliver missile justice between the slight pause boss offers before next slap attack. Either way, once a missile is shot in its eye, Adam will order his team to concentrate fire in single location, while you attack the frozen spot with a missile. Aim at the frozen tentacle and missile it to shatter it for good. Brug will now attack by sweeping the remaining tentacle around it on the floor. Did you get the drill by now? Missile its eye, then wait for other tentacle to get frozen, then missile it. Now Brug will attempt to jump on you, which is still easily avoided by sensemove. Shooting another missile into its eye will allow your allies to freeze it again, letting you get a third shot in. Now a big beetle will jump out of the remains and start scurrying around. Missile its ass too and boss is defeated. USE OF NORMAL BOMBS HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. You need to go to System Management room in order to restore power to the area. A yellow diamond shape will now appear on your map, marking your next destination. Okies, looks like we need to exit S. As you go down the corridor, five Geemers will attack, so promptly dismiss them. One of them jumped out of a vent, so go to that spot and morph ball into the vent. Roll S, use normal bomb at broken grating and then collect MISSILE TANK (01/70) to increase your missile ammo by 1 unit. Go S to navigation booth and save your progress if you want. There's a lot of NAV-Bs scattered thru BS, so don't worry about not being able to save often. BTW, when your minimap in upper right has red flashing strips at the edges, it means there are still some enemies left in the area. Go S again into large elevator area and jump to the bottom - smash Geemers if you want, and exit E. Cross the bridge (kill Geemers) and exit S. Along with four Geemers there are two Skrees spacing around, so erase them all. Now the door you need to take is locked, so we need a detour... along the left side of the corridor is a broken down pipe, so morph ball into it and roll up. Seems you can't go on? Use normal bomb to blast the grating, grab ENERGY TANK (1/5) and blast another grating away. SYSTEM MANAGEMENT ROOM Drop down and examine the terminal, which fails to power up. Instead you're attacked by a swarm of Reos, and they keep coming from two hives at the walls. Eventually they stop spawning for a while, so this is your cue to go 1PV and shoot three missiles at each hive to destroy it. Once they're history, examine the terminal again and power is restored (this will cause some of earlier areas to get populated by baddies). Take W exit, and go two rooms S. Don't take the stairs down, instead go along left wall and look for a vent blowing out air. Missile it, and morph ball thru the tunnel until you're back at the first area of BS. Collect MISSILE TANK (02/70) on the catwalk and check the terminal at far end to unlock E door. Go E twice to end up in a room where you met Adam and his team. While at top of stairs, enter 1PV and look S to spot two ledges. Get up there and use a bomb to open the grating, then morph ball thru the tunnel to grab MISSILE TANK (03/70). Return thru the tunnel, and go N, then E. Jump off the bridge and scan the floor for a tile that can be bombed. Morph ball into the hall, roll N and collect MISSILE TANK (04/70), then avoid four Geemers with some bombs. Make way to destination marker... when you get to the room with retractable bridge, Samus will fall down and have a party with three Side Hoppers (purple- grayish and green biped). Avoid their stomps and attempt to jump on their heads to perform OVERBLAST (jump on enemy to climb on it and press 1 when fully charged). Killing all three, go S and use kick climb to bounce up to MISSILE TANK (05/70). Jump down and go N, then kick climb up the shaft... Damn, an obstacle! Use 1PV and lock on to the plating in the ceiling, then missile it. Now you can jump out and use the terminal to extend the bridge. Continue to destination marker... in the big elevator room the elevator itself is now operational. Take it to the top and examine terminal on the right - this will raise the ledges at sides of the room. On left side look for a vent with yellow outline - roll into it to collect MISSILE TANK (06/70). Proceed to NAV-B 01, save your game and go N twice to get a briefing from Adam about you being destined to clear Sector 1. Oh joy... exit E. In corner of the room is a door that needs a Power Bomb to open (POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT). You won't be able to open these until faaar later in the game. Use the elevator to go up... I wanted to kick Adam's ass by taking W door, though poor fool locked himself in... exit N. Proceed down the corridor and check third vent on the ceiling to find a Reo hive - missile it three times and then kick jump up the shaft to find an item box with MISSILE TANK (07/10). Exit N. Begind the elevator are two vents - morph ball into left one, bomb the grating and then bomb item box for MISSILE TANK (08/10). Board the elevator to go down, and snipe with little eye an item as you go... Before leaving the room, go to right side of the room to get necessary footing for climbing up using the ledges. Watch out for Bulls (foe that looks like a little meteor) as you go and blow them up with beam shots. At the top of the ledges you can nab ENERGY PART (01/16). Exit N. Kill three Bulls and then five Side Hoppers (latter can also be disposed by charged beams, though Overblasts kill them the quickest). POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT, then exit N. MAIN ELEVATOR Weeee, roll into Sector 1 elevator. CHAPTER 03 ========================================================= CHAPTER 03 WLK03 SECTOR ONE GUIDE, PART 1 CHAPTER 03 ========================================================= CHAPTER 03 Exit E to NAV-B 02, save your game and exit E. SECTOR 1 / BIOSPHERE Exit N to a huge plant-covered room. In the distance you'll see two Reo hives and Gripper (basically a flytrap) in front of each hive. Gripper will keep eating Reos being spawned, so take your sweet time and missile the hives from the distance, then clean up any remaining Reos and make sure to dismantle Grippers as well. N exit is blocked by some vines - make the exit appear by using a missile on the vines, then exit N twice. Two Ghalmanians (a foe that resembles a chameleon) will attack you. Press direction on Dpad to avoid initial attack. If Ghalmanian turns invisible, it'll be spitting out some goo that travels in an arc, and when visible, it'll attempt to grab you with its tail, or it'll appear behing you and try to impale you with the tongue. It can also try to ram you. When Ghalmanian is invisible, you'll need to lock on to it and missile it to force it to appear. As Ghalmanian is losing health, you'll see a brief image of it whenever it goes invisible allowing you to gauge its approximate location. As Ghalmanian is just about ready to go, you can perform a LETHAL STRIKE (hold Dpad towards the downed enemy while holding 1, and when fully charged, let go of 1 to deliver a finishing strike). GRAPPLE BEAM HOOK ALERT - when the glass gets shattered, you may see a red light. That denotes a Grapple Beam hook being present, though it's gonna be a while before you can use it. I'm just pointing it out for future reference. Exit N when both Ghalmanians are gone. Missile the fly hive at N end of the corridor, then advance a bit, destroy Reos that appeared behind you and missile another hive to clear the corridor. Exit N. Hm, a giant beanstalk? Approach it and dismantle Geemers on lower level (this includes crossing the small catwalk towards N exit), then climb the path around beanstalk... careful though as there are several Grippers poised along the way. Keep pressing Dpad towards a possible Gripper and you'll sensemove as one attempts to grab you. At the top take the catwalk, cleaning up Geemers, Reos and another damn hive. Shoot the door with missile to remove the vines, then exit N (but in relation to + map you actually exit W). Note: Damn, the game takes a turn for the worse with directions. Ah, Samus it... I'll just be using directions as they come up when you look at gameplay screen. Save at NAV-B 03, exit N. Proceed thru the corridor when suddenly Wavers (foe that resembles a clam) come to life and start flying around, trying to divebomb you. Smack them away with beam shots, and exit N. Uproot two Grippers ahead and then slide down the slope. Try to augment your descent past spiked vines and jump over the third. SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT n the ceiling of the slope. At the bottom eradicate all Geemers and Wavers as you go N... AAAAARGH... A new enemy will attack Samus - this is Griptian (it resembles an armadillo). It has a couple of attacks - rolling into you, lunging at you, striking at you from the ground, punching you, or jumping onto you. It is most vulnerable when it lunges at you, as it goes thru several moments of weakness with its claws being stuck, and at this time you can deliver lethal strike. After you smash first one, two more emerge for you to deal with. N door is locked, you can't go S, so exit E. SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT - Super Missile blast door bars your progress E, so let's look for another way. There's some shattered glass thru which you can fit as morph ball - smack Wavers away only for nothing to be found. But there's an item in ceiling's vent... Roll back out in the corridor and look near top of the screen for entries into vents - the right one is open, so jump up in order for Samus to grab on, then press jump button again to have Samus morph ball into the vent. Collect MISSILE TANK (09/70) and keep rolling until you fall down on other side of Super Missile door. Exit N into what appears to be an observation room. Nothing of interest here yet, so exit S, then go downstairs and exit E. Take the far N door. BREEDING ROOM Walk thru it for a scene, then exit S. The door locks behind you, exit W, go upstairs and exit N into observation room. Something's changed here - a Geemer test subject has appeared in center of the room in some tube. Missile it for a way out of here. Enter morph ball and jump into the hole where the tube used to be. Hold down to roll out of the vents, and exit W. Here N door is still locked, so attempt to go S... PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the screen and tilt your view a bit left. Look near the ground and watch for the moving leaves of a plant in front of what appears to be a big red fruit. Haha, you think that thing is cute? Adam will now unlock N door, which you promptly take. Aw, heck, why lock the door behind me then? Go thru the forest, swatting Reos and smashing two hives for ITEM BEEP. No way out? As you backtrack, you'll see small creatures with red light falling out of a hole. Morph ball into it and you'll end up on a ledge with semi-visible terminal. Examine it and the layout of the area will change, revealing N exit. Um, the item? Backtrack even more and you'll find a couple of stone steps - jump up them to nab MISSILE TANK (10/70). Exit N into a corridor full of Geemers that keep coming after their brethren are slain. Above N exit is a charge switch - pump it full of beam shots or use single charged beam to activate it. The room will fill with some gas, incapacitating your foes and unlocking N exit. Now you're in an area with a waterfall. Behind the waterfall is Reo hive to destroy, then snipe some Reos in the distance. Enter the waterfall and roll into the hole you'll find here. While in morph ball, you can use 2 to jump. Near the exit you'll be blocked by a rock, so bomb it. Now walk around the room, past the sleeping beauty, and on other side operate the terminal. Sleeping beauty will wake up, and three Side Hoppers will appear close to you. Overblast them, then take care of Dragotex (dinosaur-like foe). Three missiles should do it in. Changing the room's layout revealed an elevator shaft in NE corner, so kick jump up the shaft. Exit N, clear nine Geemers from the corridor and roll into open vent along left side for MISSILE TANK (11/70). Exit N, smosh about twelve Wavers and slide down the slope, jumping over spiked vines when necessary. Exit N into much needed NAV-B 04. Aim at the crack in W wall and missile it, then morph ball thru it. Walk thru long corridor, ignoring two Groganch freaks outside (they can be killed later in the game, but serve no significant purpose I could find), and exit N. Take W door into ladies room, and examine one of the stalls for ACCEL CHARGE (1/6), exit E into previous room and exit N. Kill three Bulls in the corridor and exit N, kill five Geemers and take E door into elevator shaft. As you're jumping up the ledges, clean away prowling Geemers. Also take note of two ledges you can stand on at right side of the shaft. Go as far high up as you can on left side of the shaft. Now get ready... Once you can't go any higher, enter 1PV and missile the sparking junk holding the elevator in place. Elevator will lower a bit, but be stopped by another junk piece, and a Ghalmanian will appear all the way down below. Quickly descend to the higher of two ledges on the right, enter 1PV and missile the junk piece that stopped the elevator. Elevator now falls, squishing the Ghalmanian. Work your way up and jump left to get out of elevator shaft. Snipe away five Geemers. Hm... get back to elevator shaft and go 1PV. Near the top ledge you'll see a tunnel - morph ball into it to get MISSILE TANK (12/70). Finally, exit N. SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT. Blast. But wait, something else is here. There are little openings in all corners of the room. Morph balling into any opening on right side leads to item box with MISSILE TANK (13/70). Exit N into what appears to be a control room for that waterfall scenery down below. At NE corner of control room is a vent that can be missiled to produce an exit. Roll into it, fall down, and keep rolling right. Bomb the three blocks, then careful... bomb two blocks and immediately deploy more bombs to disintegrate a Geemer. Keep moving right and look for another block in the wall that can be bombed. Roll thru the opening to end up in waterfall area at some ledges. You cannot claim the item in the corner yet, cos you need Grapple Beam auth'd (GRAPPLE BEAM HOOK ALERT). Roll back into the hole, and continue right. As you go down the second slope, slow down! Jump over the hole ahead to collect MISSILE TANK (14/70), then score the hole in one. SCRAP BLOCK Roll right into room full of Wavers, and shoot them all. You can also destroy all strange rocks by messaging them with a missile. In upper left corner near the floor is a tunnel which leads to a bombable grating, awarding you with MISSILE TANK (15/70). Roll back out, go upstairs and exit N. Go thru the tunnel, shoot the vines with missiles, roll thru the hole. Now avoid the deeper parts of the ground or a Gripper will eat you up. As you steer past second pit, Sandfang (foe that resembles a worm) will break thru N wall and come screeching in your direction. Mash Dpad to avoid getting damaged. Ahead is Gripper roomful... meh. Altogether there are six killable Grippers, three of them are already moving, and other three spring to life as you get closer (sensemove to avoid being eaten). Finally missile the vines to the E and get a move on for a dead end? Missile a part of the ceiling to collapse it, then missile a rock blocking access to a pipe you can roll thru towards E. SUBTERRANEAN CONTROL ROOM Dispose of two Ghalmanians, then exit E into NAV-B 05, save your game and exit E. You'll have to fight three FG-1000s. The metal menaces can only be damaged when they try to shoot you with diffusion beam. First you need to deal with two FG-1000s. They'll attempt to ram you a couple of times before switching to shooting mode. Deliver charged beams up their rears or missile them for instakill. When one droid goes kaputt, another one appears. Smash all three and last one will drop DIFFUSION BEAM upgrade. Once collected, N wall will move away, revealing two Reo hives. Destroy Reos with charged beam (now a cinch since shots scatter after hitting initial target) and missile both hives to kingdom come. Examine the terminal to unlock N door in NAV-B 04. Exit W into NAV-B 05, save your game and exit W. Duo of Sandfangs will make five holes, three in the ceiling and two on N wall. When a Sandfang appears in any of the holes, it'll charge up an electric ball and send it towards you after couple of seconds. If you can missile it during the time Sandfang is charging the shot, it will fall out of the hole. If that happens, Sandfang will try lunging at you and attempt to devour you. Deliver a charged shot to it to make it rise up, exposing its belly which is a weak point. Before it crashes back down, shoot another charged shot at its exposed belly, and finish it off with lethal strike once weakened. When first Sandfang becomes bait, remaining Sandfang will make two more holes on S wall, making it harder for you to locate it. It may also need two missile shots to get it to fall out. When killed, exit W into morph ball tunnel. Bomb slot is now active, so fall into it, deploy a bomb and get shot away. You'll end up in the waterfall room, with a Dragotex charging at you. Avoid it, and take it away with three missiles. Make your way to NAV-B 04, save your game and take N exit. Assassinate all Geemers and Wavers (may take a while), then go morph ball and check near left side of the room to find a pipe. Enter it, bomb the debris to clear it away, and morph ball jump into next part of the pipe. When you get out on a balcony overlooking the corridor... SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT (look in the far NW corner of the room). Examine the terminal to change the room's layout into forest- like. A single portion of metal wall can be seen on N end of the corridor. If you examine it from close up, you'll also spot a crack in it. Enter morph ball, morph ball jump and deploy a bomb to destroy the crack. Roll into the hole and you'll end up somewhere underground. Carefully advance down the tunnel... missile the weblike barrier, kill two Reos, then Gripper, missile the weblike barrier, kill two Reos, then Gripper, missile the weblike barrier, kill two Reos, and missile final weblike barrier which holds Griptian. Kick its butt, and exit N. BIOLOGICAL EXPERIMENT FLOOR There's nothing of interest at the bottom, so start climbing the circular path. You'll encounter Frondanas and Poison Grippers here. Frondana is plant on wall or ceiling that tries to shoot you with energy ball, or attempts to grab you with a vine. And Poison Gripper is a smaller version of Gripper, except that it can move and it can't eat you up the same way Gripper can. Frondanas can only be damaged when open, so take note of that. Squish first Frondana, then continue onward, sniping Poison Grippers outta the way. Missile second and third Frondana, then drop on a ledge below your current one to get MISSILE TANK (16/70). Continue the climb (wave sayonara to fourth Frondana) and at the top jump into the hole and get ready. PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the screen and look to the right. Examine the larvas crawling around... BOSS BATTLE - KING KIHUNTER A crapload of Kihunters will attack you. Use sensemove in combo with charged shots to take them out. Watch out for those without wings - if one grabs hold of you, it'll self-destruct for huge damage. Once enough Kihunter have been slain, some flowers at the ceiling will open and start shooting you with energy balls. Avoid the barrage and once they stop for a while, missile as many as you can. When you destroy two flowers (or you dawdle around for too long), another bee wave will arrive - after killing them, flowers open up again, but this time with no breather between shots. When only one remains, you have to deal with both Kihunter and evading flower's shots. Eventually Kihunter wave will temporarily subside, allowing you to shoot the final flower. The hive at the ceiling will now collapse, revealing King Kihunter along with its subjects. Destroy the followers, then missile the King a couple of times before new ones appear. About six missiles will finish it off. After the scene you're supposed to go to the Exam center. Zeros (basically a larval stage of Kihunter) can be killed by bombs, and they mutate into Kihunters if not killed fast enough. There's also Side Hopper to be killed. Just before the side path meets with main corridor, there's a vent you can roll thru to get to ENERGY PART (02/16). Now exit N into NAV-B 06 and save your game, then exit N. Shoot Reos in the distance and then bomb remaining Zeros. Take a right at the junction and exit N. Jump into the water and work your way E, shooting Skulteras (dried fish, heh) as you go. Missile Frondana and then morph ball into the tunnel it was blocking to collect MISSILE TANK (17/70). Roll back out and continue towards E, shooting more fish. At the end shoot charged beam to the wall switch to activate a lift platform above the water surface (SPEED BOOSTER BARRIER ALERT). As you go back W, stop every so often and look up to find some more Frondanas on the ceiling (there's three in total). When you're fairly close to one, it'll open up and flail its tentacle around, meaning you can missile it. Climb out of the water and hang onto lift platform to carry you back all the way to E exit. This room is divided into two 'ponds', left and right one. Jump into the water of left pond and mutilate all Skultera below surface, then climb back out and shoot two Bulls. Jump across the little islands and shoot charged beam into charge switch on N wall. This will cause the water level to rise, allowing you to jump further E. Get below water in right pond and shoot all the Skulteras, then walk towards SE end to find a hole. Morph ball into it to collect MISSILE TANK (18/70). Get out of the hole and look up - on lower side of one of the islands there's a charge switch, so shoot it with charged beam to lower the water level. Climb out of the water and jump over to E-most island (shoot all Bulls buzzing around). Look up for a charge switch which needs to be shot with charged beam as well. This will now cause water level to alternate between rising and lowering. While still standing on E-most island, wait for water level to rise. When it does so, jump right towards the side of the cliff and then kick jump your way up. Exit N. Now you're in large area with lots of trees, and rain keeps pouring down. Shoot a couple of Poison Grippers that are closing in on your position, then go all the way W as far as you can. Along the left side of the room are two trees - N one has some platforms for you to use, which eventually lead to a pipe you can morph ball into. Roll thru two pipes (careful, second one is littered with two Geemers), then jump across to third pipe, fall down two ledges to fourth pipe, jump up to fifth pipe (three Geemers inside). At the end of plumbing work you'll land on a ledge where a terminal can be examined to change room's layout and wake up another enemy. This is Groganch. The weak spot is orange bulb, which can be either on its belly or its back - in this case it is on its belly. The sicko will be launching two types of purple projectiles. One homes in on your position, and the other is simply shot in an arc. The easiest way to dispose of boss is to go 1PV from fair distance and missile the weak spot. If your missiles run out, just use concentration and you'll be raring to go. If homing purple projectile gets past your missiles too close for comfort, shake Wiimote to perform sensemove. After about four missile hits Groganch will screech and move the weak spot on its back. Missile it some more and it'll revert back to its belly. At this point it is close to defeat, so couple more missile hits will permanently put it on ice. A lift door opens and N exit unlocks as well. Kick wall up the shaft and exit N into NAV-B 07. Save your game and exit N. Kill hatched Kihunters, Zeros and whatever else you find in the room, then drop down the ledge to some crates, and exit N. Look toward the ceiling and missile the crate up there. When it pops, it'll reveal MISSILE TANK (19/70), then walk into elevator shaft and jump up using the ledges on the sides. At the top enter 1PV and shoot charge switch with charged shot to activate bomb slot at the bottom. Roll into it and bomb it to be shot up to higher floor. Exit S. Kill five Kihunters infesting the corridor, exit S. Doors will lock behind you and three Griptians will roll in for the fun. Smash them with overblasts when they lunge at you, leaving them defenseless for a few moments. Exit E afterwards. Kill four Reos, exit N. Shoot two Frondanas as you near them, exit N. Now you're in a huge area (formed as a quarter-circle when looked at + map). You'll need to kill another Groganch. Along left wall of the area is a red line - follow it north to find a platform lift (SPEED BOOSTER BARRIER ALERT). Grab onto it, enter 1PV and shoot Reos coming out of the wall. When it stops, hold right on Dpad and press 2 to grab onto another ledge. Roll into the the pipe (careful of several Geemers residing here), and don't pass up ENERGY TANK (2/5). Roll out of the pipe and operate the terminal to open up N door. Exit N into NAV-B 08. Exit N (POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT), and exit N again. BIOSPHERE TEST AREA Samus auto-moves to the building in distance. EXAM CENTER Exit N into the elevator, then move S. Exit N into NAV-B 09 to save your game, then exit N. At junction go right, and get stumped at locked door... go morph ball and bomb E wall to make a hole. Roll thru the tunnel, and exit N into the room with terminal for the locked door we passed. Check the terminal to unlock the door, exit S, roll thru the tunnel again and exit N. Take N exit twice into a big computer room and a scene pops. While somebody is busy hacking the computer, you need to check out the building. Go upstairs, exit N into NAV-B 10 to save, then follow your nose. Eventually you'll pop into a sort of cryo chamber, and then you'll find a room with five doors. Examine middle door... PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the screen and search around corpse's chest. Samus returns to the computer room. So we need to search for possible survivor now. Go upstairs into NAV-B 10 and then keep going straight (a new door will be unlocked)... when you end up in a room with five corridors, enter any of them. PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the screen, aim up and examine any foe. Defeat all Zebesians (three onscreen max, with three coming as reinforcements), then return to computer room. Don't pass up saving in NAV-B 10! When you exit the room, go a bit downstairs for several scenes... Samus is pinned to the ground, and you have to missile the foe's tail before it impales you. Its tail will keep moving faster and alternate positions more often the lower its health. After sustaining nine missile hits you're saved. PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the screen, and turn right. In front of the vehicle there's some green puddle on the ground. Examine it. All right! Finally we can move to another sector... To the left of entrance to exam center is another door. Take it and jump down the elevator shaft. CHAPTER 04 ========================================================= CHAPTER 04 WLK04 SECTOR THREE GUIDE, PART 1 CHAPTER 04 ========================================================= CHAPTER 04 POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT. Exit E. SECTOR 3 / PYROSPHERE Go E, shooting Skrees, Heat Bulls (same as Bull foe, except it's on fire) and Mellas (fly enemy on fire, can spit fireballs). Observe the background for an image of a lava monster, which will eventually try to eat you up by suddenly lunging from below. When it does so, tap right on Dpad to do sensemove. The portion of the walkway is now gone, and if you turn around, you'll see a Grapple Beam hook in the air (GRAPPLE BEAM HOOK ALERT). Exit E. Kill two Heat Bulls, exit E into NAV-B 11 and save your game. Exit W into previous room, and look at the background to spot three small fireflies (these usually denote an item is nearby). Jump into the opening, and spot a tunnel towards the left. Morph ball thru it to nail ENERGY PART (03/16). Roll back out and (SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT) take lower W exit into a giant lava-covered area. While in rooms with lava, or when near lava pool, Samus takes continuous damage over time. It's best to avoid fighting baddies at this time until we get Varia Suit. Go W until that lava monster attempts to eat you again. Perform sensemove and then point of view changes temporarily. Run S, jumping when necessary and doing sensemove when appropriate. Two times you'll need to grab onto a ledge in order to move forward. If by chance you fall into lava, don't dawdle in taking too long to get back onto the rocks. And if you perish, simply choose to restart. At one point the lava monster will shatter some rocks - this is a POWER BOMB SPOT ALERT. At the end exit S into a room with the doors locking behind you. Several Zebesians will attack you - deal with them appropriately, only to have more join in the fun, as well as Mellas being spawned at their hive in the corner. USE OF ICE BEAM HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Ice Beam has higher damage output, and is excellent against heat-based foes. Now we're talking! Use the upgraded beam to swiftly kill all remaining foes. Then bomb the three circles on the floor, one of them revealing a bomb slot. Roll into it and bomb it to claim ACCEL CHARGE (2/6). Exit E, clear the room of Mellas and Sovas (foe that looks like beetle on fire), then exit E. Dessgeegas will emerge from the sand. It looks like Side Hopper, but is purplish and has spikes on the legs. Shoot it with charged beam to freeze up its leg, then jump on its head and perform overblast. You'll need to do it twice to defeat it. There are four Dessgeegas in the room. Also, one of the vents blowing out fire is damaged - aim at it in 1PV and shoot it with charge beam, then roll into the vent and bomb the item box for MISSILE TANK (20/70). Take the other E exit. Kick jump your way up the shaft, shooting away three Sovas. SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT in the ceiling, then walk thru the corridor, blow away some more Sovas, and drop down the other shaft, making sure to grab on one of the ledges along the left side (at the bottom is a lava pool and it'll drain your health slowly). Enter 1PV and shoot charge switch just above the doors to raise them a little, so you can fit thru as morph ball. Remove another Sova and exit E into NAV-B 12. Save your game and exit E into giant lava area again. Trek E and be careful of Magdollites (resebmles a lava giant). Smaller ones will be spitting rocks at you, while larger ones rely on surprise tactics of suddenly popping out the lava swiping at you. Pass three large and one small Magdollite, then you'll need to jump in order to climb a ledge. As you drop down on other side, go morph ball and roll into the hole near where you landed. Bomb the grating and collect ENERGY PART (04/16). Roll back out and continue E. Note of couple of stone platforms leading N to some Grapple Beam hooks in the air (GRAPPLE BEAM HOOK ALERT). Clean the corridor of Sovas, Mellas and their hive, then take the other W exit. FLOOR OBSERVATION ROOM As soon as you get to center of the room, a new enemy attacks. Use sensemove immediately to avoid initial strike. Asborean is heavily armored, and has a weak point on its belly. Weak point is exposed just before Asborean tries to hit you with (double) swipe, so charge up a beam and let it rip. After second swipe it also takes the Asborean a few moments to regain the stance, offering you a good chance at striking it. Every so often Asborean will go into ramming mode. It can also release several small blobs which track you along the ground and then explode in your face. The crucial moment to look for is the following - while Asborean is in ramming mode, it may open up its pincers and protrude its head from the shell. This is your cue! Shoot it with charged beam to stun it momentarily, then run up close for lethal strike - Samus will pull Asborean's body out of the shell, destroying the latter in the process. Deliver final charge shot to Asborean, though be careful of letting it grab you. It'll seppuku for some big damage. Go morph ball and roll under the stairs leading to monitor showing a volcano to nail MISSILE TANK (21/70). Exit W, then N. Uhoh, the volcano is active. How uncouth. Run for it, since your energy is slowly being drained, but advance with caution. Volcano rocks will fall at the spot which is highlighted on the ground, giving you advance warning of where not to stand. Some rocks will spawn Sovas, so dispose of them if you so desire. At the end of bridge is NAV-B 13. Save your game and exit N. A terminal is on other side, and some Zebesians are waiting in ambush. Smash them all (lethal striking them is cool looking), then examine the terminal. Doing so drains the lava, and opens up two vents on sides of the room. Roll into right one for ENERGY PART (05/16), then roll into left one to advance and fall down into... CRATER INTERIOR Ah, damn energy draining lava crap. At the spot you landed is a bomb slot which you can use to return to previous room if you ever need to. Avoid any confrontations until you get Varia Suit (which is coming up shortly)! Go right and not long afterwards lava begins to rise, so step on it. Again, fighting Sovas at this point is waste of time. Two times during the run a tentacle will attempt to smack you, so avoid that with sensemove. Near the end morph ball thru the tunnel, then kick jump to a higher one, roll thru that tunnel, and kick jump again to end the chase. USE OF VARIA SUIT HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Varia Suit negates damage from heat, and reduces damage from enemy attacks. BOSS BATTLE - GOYAGMA About time we got Varia Suit. Here are boss' attacks: a) Slam tentacle into the ground, and sweep it along the ground in semi circle, then repeat with other tentacle - jump to avoid. b) Dunking tentacles in the lava, following up with throwing three lava rocks at you - jump to avoid. c) Diving into lava with neck frozen, then emerging later with ice removed and tossing lava rocks at entire area you can move on - jump to avoid. d) Once the weak point in the neck is gone, it sets tentacles on fire and begins pounding the ground for lava eruptions - keep mobile to avoid. e) Slam flaming tentacle into the ground, and sweep it along the ground in semi circle, and sweep again two times - jump to avoid. f) Slam flaming tentacle into the ground for lava eruption, and then sweep the ground twice - keep mobile for initial attack, jump to avoid the rest. The weak point is in the neck. Charge some beam shots towards it until it gets frozen, and then missile it. Repeat it once more and weak point is gone. Hey! Goyagma will set its tentacles on fire and start slamming on the ground, with each slam making lava erupt under you, so keep mobile to avoid at. Eventually one of the tentacles gets stuck, revealing a weak point. Shoot it with charged shot to freeze the tentacle and then run up it to perform overblast on the head. Do it two more times and you win. Now make your way back down. Dessgeegas will impede your progress, so get rid of them by freezing their legs and doing overblast. Use the bomb slot to return briefly to NAV-B 13 to save, and return here afterwards. Continue left and keep going left until you fall down ledge, then you have to go right. Finally exit E. Squish five Sovas in the short corridor, exit E into the room with elevator leading to main sector, exit E again. Clean away some Heat Bulls and Sovas, exit E. Kill three Zebesians (GRAPPLE BEAM HOOK ALERT), kick jump up the shaft, (SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT, POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT), exit N. Kill four Mellas and two Dessgeegas in the corridor, exit E into NAV-B 14 to save your game, and exit E. Hmm, nowhere to go... GRAPPLE BEAM HOOK ALERT. Meh, return to NAV-B 14 to get an update from Adam about going to Sector 2. Exit E, then S, drop down the ledge, kill four Sovas, and try to leave by W exit. Kill another Asborean for doors to unlock. Exit E twice and board the elevator to Main Sector, then board the elevator to Sector 2. CHAPTER 05 ========================================================= CHAPTER 05 WLK05 SECTOR TWO GUIDE, PART 1 CHAPTER 05 ========================================================= CHAPTER 05 Exit N, SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT, exit N to access NAV-B 15 for saving, exit N. Move thru the area, sniping down Snomers (spiked crabs) and Himelias (ice flies) along with their hive... wait! When you destroy the hive, turn around and go 1PV, then look below the broken stalagmite to spot MISSILE TANK (22/70). Waltz further E and climb up two ledges (SPEED BOOSTER BARRIER ALERT), then drop down and continue further E for a trio of Volfons to attack (Volfon resembles a goat). It cab esaily disposed of by shooting it with charged beam, and while frozen to the ground, deliver a missile or two in its head. Defeat four of them (one comes as reinforcement when first is defeated) and climb another ledge to exit E. There's a Fumbleye plastered at ceiling in middle of the room. It's protected by a barrier which you cannot damage at this moment. Fumbleye will shoot projectiles moving in arc on your position, or grab you with its tentacle if you get too close, though it is docile at this moment. It's accompanied by few Joulions (some kind of flying robot fish) that shoot electricity at you. Kill Joulions with charged shots. Jump into the water and kill Skulteras lurking around, collect MISSILE TANK (23/70), then step on NE platform suspended in the water and look for charge switch on N wall. Shoot it to raise platforms above the water, with you on the one closest to N exit. Make a dash for it. Kill Snomers in next area, and follow up with three Joulions. Then missile two ice blocks to remove them, and exit N. Attempt to cross the bridge, and a little Snomer will make it crash. A Gigafraug (a biped with armor on head and a couple of antlers) will pop out to play with you in a rough manner. Gigafraug will attempt to ram you, and can try to jump on you in same manner as hoppers do. I don't know yet what to do to remove its armor, but it can be shot with charged beams in the back when you have the chance. Also, you can climb onto the ledge on N end of the area and missile Gigafraug from up here without any reprisal from the enemy. When it's gone, missile any remaining ice blocks on the ground. If for any reason you need to return to the entrance of the area, jump up several ledges along N side and look for an opening on E side. Morph ball into it and roll thru the long tunnel until you're dropped close to S exit. While here, check out the Energy Tank and another door in the distance. You'll get that Energy Tank later. For now, drop down and take N exit for NAV-B 16 and save your game. Exit N, kill Himellas and their hive in the corridor, then missile... oops, SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT. Backtrack a bit and look for an opening to the vent on left side of the corridor. Jump to grab onto the edge, then roll thru it to fall down in the room on the other side of Super Missile lock. Go N, and short scene occurs when a part of frozen scenery breaks, prompting the entrance of Kyratian. It likes to jump around and side-tackle you, as well as shoot energy balls in your direction. When it turns orange, it can only be damaged by missiles, and it gains a new attack where it tries to power stomp you. Deliver lethal strike when sufficiently weakened, then exit N. Some Volfons disposal is needed, then brush off the assault of Gigafraug and stay stumped at frozen wall on far end of the area. Missile it to make it crack, and then jump to grab the ledge, go morph ball and bomb the crack to make it shatter, then exit N. Squish five Snomers in the area, go morph ball and morph ball jump on a little elevation, kick jump up the wall, squish more Snomers and drop down for Dessgeegas rodeo. When you kill them, look for a vent above N door. Jump into it and roll thru to end up in small niche with MISSILE TANK (24/70), then exit N. Kyratian will show you how to advance by shooting a stalactite and causing it to fall down creating a path for you. Jump on first shot stalactite to force Kyratian to retreat, smacking another stalactite in the process. Missile one more stalactite at the ceiling, and then jump over to where Kyratian is and defeat it. As you advance towards next pond, another Kyratian will appear and shoot down necessary stalactites for you. You need to missile one more stalactite on the ceiling, then jump over to it and nail its as well. Before you take the door, you may have seen two holes below the ledge. It is possible to jump off the ledge and then turn Samus in midair to have her face the hole so she grabs on. Roll thru it for MISSILE TANK (25/70). Exit N into NAV-B 17, save your game and exit N. Kill Snomers and Himellas in the corridor, exit N. A scene occurs, then we continue the search. Jumping up N ledge will lead you to a door that is locked with five Normal Missile locks. You need Seeker Missile upgrade to open this door. Memorize it for later. Drop back down, and stop at the corpse of Gigafraug. Aim charged shots at the vents on N wall to freeze them, then examine the right vent for item box with MISSILE TANK (26/70). Exit N, then exit N again. Clear the area of Snomers, run past Gigafraug, and shoot two Himellas (so they stop aiming at you with icicles). Gigafraug should feel lonely on other end, so meanwhile shoot both vents with charged shot to freeze them up. Behind the left vent is Himella hive, so go morph ball and jump close to its base, then bomb iz until its destroyed. Finally dispose of Gigafraug. At south side of the corridor is a platform lift which is encased in ice. Missile it to destroy the ice, and move along the left side, noting that the path is obstructed on two spots with some ice. Missile these ice blockades as well. Then, a bit S from the two fans you've frozen is a little indentation in the ground. Look up and lock on to a rock that can be missiled. And finally, POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT. Now jump on platform lift and let it carry you to the end, then jump into the little control room and examine the terminal to unlock the door. Take E exit. Jump down and clear away Snomers and Skulteras, then navigate the path until you're stopped by huge ice block. Missile it to crack it, and then bomb it to break it and continue on your path, killing more Snomers and some Joulions in the way. Take E exit. WATER TANK Get wet and snipe all Skulteras. The ledges are too high to jump to... scan the area and lock on to water drainage pipe, then missile it. Morph ball jump into the opening and bomb it to crack it open. You'll be pulled in previous area where you shot down the ice block. Go left and use the ledges in the shaft to get back to surface, then use the floating ice piece to get back to water tank. Two Kyratians will appear as you jump down into the drained area. Fight them or not, when you climb up on right side of the room, go towards SE corner and look for an opening in the wall. Jump to grab on the ledge, then morph ball into it for MISSILE TANK (27/70). Take N exit and N exit again. Aaaah, SPEED BOOSTER BARRIER ALERT. All the work for nothing? Turn around and try to go to water tank again. USE OF SPEED BOOSTER HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. USE OF SHINESPARK HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. To use Speed Booster, you need to run for a while in one direction, without sustaining damage or hitting obstacles. You will then cause damage by running into enemies and can climb steep ascents. Get back to the locked door and start running N - speedboost thru the barriers and exit N while still in speedboost. You'll break two more barriers and finish in dead end with E-RECOVERY TANK (1/3). The next item will perhaps require a couple of tries. Face S and start running. Just as you're about to exit thru S door you'll enter into speedboost. Count to two, then press 2 and hold, while holding down on Dpad. Let go of 2 and you'll shinespark to an item box with MISSILE TANK (28/70). We'll go back for two more items like this... drop off the ledge, exit S into water tank room, exit W, jump across floating ice piece to reach other shore, exit W. Now you're in the long corridor where we fought Snomers, Himellas and Gigafraug. Two Snomers are back, so kill them, and then stand at S end of the corridor. Go into speedboost and when you hit that indentation in the ground, hold 2, let go of Dpad and release 2 to shinespark straight up. When Samus hits the ceiling, hold up so that she grabs on. Morph ball into the pipe to collect MISSILE TANK (29/70), then get close to the hole. Lay a bomb and hold down as it goes off - the force should be enough to make morph ball jump across the hole, allowing you to roll into item box with another MISSILE TANK (30/70). Okay, drop down, take E exit, jump across floating ice piece to other shore, exit E into water tank room, exit N, and exit N again, go into speedboost, exit N. In case you don't remember, now you're in the area where you met Volfons enemies for the first time. Drop down to the right and exit E into the room with Fumbleye, which is now pretty active. Run around the perimeter, getting ready to jump when it tries to grab you with the tentacle. Shooting Joulions isn't worth the time, and they'll likely miss, anyway. Exit N. When you see next N door in the distance, go into speedboost, charge thru N exit and press 2 when on the bridge. Hold up on Dpad, let go of 2 and shinespark across the chasm. The Energy Tank below? Go morph ball and roll into a hole hiding behind a stalagmite to your right. This leads you to ENERGY TANK (3/5), then roll back into the tunnel, bomb the bomb slot and take upper N exit into NAV-B 18. Save your game, exit N, kill four Snomers, exit E. SECTOR GENERATOR ROOM Shoot all Snomers you see from entrance point and then get to business. There's a huge pillar with three segments slowly turning clockwise. To its right is another pillar with charge switch on it. (Kick) jump on the pillar and grab on its middle segment, then enter 1PV and activate the charge switch. Doing so will extend the pillar it is on and create a platform on the top. Grab onto highest segment of the pillar and then jump off to the right. Quickly run across the platform so that Fumbleye doesn't get hold of you. Jump towards another pillar on the right and you'll grab onto lower of rotating segments (these ones go counterclockwise). Kick jump off the nearby wall to grab onto higher of rotating segments and then jump off towards S. Collect MISSILE TANK (31/70), then cling onto higher rotating segment again and jump off towards W. Finally take N exit. Exit N again. Shoot all Snomers, then missile three ice blocks to clear the path. Exit N into a room full of tubes... go left and drop down. Find three gratings in the ground and bomb them. One of them will lead you to ENERGY PART (6/16). Destroying test subjects in the tubes will make something good appear, but you don't have the means of doing so yet. Kick jump back up and exit S into previous room to gain some distance. Speedboost thru N door and hold 2 as you reach the end of bridge. Hold up on Dpad, let go of 2 and shinespark across for battle against Kyratian, and then another one. Exit N, kill Himellas and their have, then exit E into NAV-B 19. Save your game and exit E. EXPERIMENT FLOOR Kill Groganch, and then scale the cliffs after it's been assimilated. PIXEL HUNT - Aim Wii remote at the screen, and search the spot on the building between the two windows exactly in front of you. Go S a bit, and then missile the snow pile for ACCEL CHARGE (3/6), exit N. Head down the corridor, SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT, exit N. MATERIALS STOREHOUSE Go downstairs and walk between the containers until few scenes kick in. BOSS BATTLE - MAINTENANCE ROBOT Here are boss' attacks: a) Shoots an energy beam, which travels straight, across the room or around the boss, resulting in eruption afterwards - stay mobile to avoid. b) Rams into you - stay mobile or sensemove to avoid. c) Stopping close to you, then lowering pincers to the ground and doing 360degree spin - stay away to avoid. d) Begins spinning one of the pincers and attempts to grab you. If successful, slams Samus into the wall for more damage - stay mobile or sensemove to avoid. e) When both pincers are destroyed, deploys some spikes on its front, and attempts to nab you - stay away to avoid. Not much room to move for this battle. The first point of interest are robot's pincers, which are also its the most deadly weapon. Shoot either pincer with couple of charged beams, while avoiding its energy beam and attempts to grab you. After sustaining enough shots, the pincer will get frozen, which is your cue to missile it. Repear for the other pincer, and now boss deploys the spikes on the front. Robot will keep trying to run you over, so sensemove a lot to avoid being damaged. Next weak point are boss' wheels at the back. You also need to freeze them with some charged shots. Doing so will stop it dead in its tracks and cause a radiator to become exposed on its back. Missile the radiator until it retracts back into the robot. Freeze the wheels again as necessary and finish off the radiator by delivering more missiles into it. An update from Adam wants us to return to Sector 3 to deal with the menace that eluded us earlier. Kick jump up the shaft, take N exit, and step E into elevator. Exit N into NAV-B 20, save the game and exit N again. Walk around the containers and nail MISSILE TANK (32/70), then take W exit. Kill three Volfons, then go as far N as you can. We'll be using the blue dot that appeared as a sign for when to shinespark. Face S and go into speedboost, then when you find yourself below the blue dot, hold 2, let go of Dpad and release 2 to shinespark straight up. Hold up to have Samus grab on the ledge and collect MISSILE TANK (33/70). Now stand as far S as you can, face N and go into speedboost, then when you find yourself just before the wall, hold 2, let go of Dpad and release 2 to shinespark straight up. Hold up so that Samus lands on a ledge. Morph ball into the bomb slot, and bomb it to be shot upward in small morph ball baze. Be careful of electrified panels which will briefly shine before sparking you, and there's Snomers grazing around as well (bomb them for disposal). Only drop down the holes that lead into pipes, dropping down any other hole will bring you back to the bottom of the wall where you shonesparked. Eventually you'll land on a circular platform with another bomb slot. Roll into it, bomb it and be shot into another small morph ball maze. Same advice as earlier applies (there're no electro-panels though). The second set eventually leads you to a small corridor with locked door on S, an ENERGY TANK (4/5) and a switch that cannot be shot. Once you collect Energy Tank, the door unlocks, so exit S and slide down the slope, avoiding obstacles if you can. Take E exit. Some Zebesians will drop in uninvited and trap Samus behind glass walls. While you cannot shoot them, they sure can. Sensemove their shots for a while... USE OF WAVE BEAM HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Wave Beam can penetrate materials that are semi/transparent. Wave Super Zebesians into other existence, then take W exit again. Now stand as far S as you can, making sure you face the N wall in the distance. Go into speedboost, then when you find yourself just before the wall, hold 2, let go of Dpad and release 2 to shinespark straight up. Hold up so that Samus lands on a ledge. Morph ball into the bomb slot, and bomb it to be shot upward in small morph ball baze. No electro-panels this time, but Snomers are here as welcoming party. Only drop down the holes that lead into pipes, dropping down any other hole will bring you back to the bottom of the wall where you shonesparked. Eventually you'll land on a circular platform with another bomb slot. Roll into it, bomb it and be shot into another small morph ball maze. This time around you have Snomers and a lot of electro-panels, which make navigation difficult. Stay away from holes that don't lead into pipes, though. The second set eventually leads you to that small corridor with charge switch we couldn't shoot. Remedy the mistake by shooting the switch now. Exit S and slide down the slope WITH HUGE AVALANCHE ON YOUR ASS. Don't get buried, Samus! When you get off the slope, hold down on Dpad to run for it. Samus will autoshinespark at appropriate moment... Exit N, shoot Joulions away, then start climbing the ledges. Missile the frozen ones, and there are a couple of ledges which give up under Samus' weight. Those ledges you'll need to shoot with charged beam to freeze them up. Destroy two Kyratians at the top with charged beams; you no longer need to missile them when they glow orange, as Wave Beam upgrade allows you to punch thru their shield. Exit N into NAV-B 21, save your game and exit N. MATERIALS TRANSFER LIFT Oh boy... step on the lift, operate it and get ready to duke away with lot of Super Zebesians; first wave consists of three, and then four Supers. You get a breather for a while, and then a new enemy attacks. This is Rhedogian, annoying SOB you'll learn to hate during the game. Avoid its missile barrage by sensemove, and keep pelting it with charged shots while its airborne. When it's on the ground, it's very hard to land a shot at it, since Rhedogian moves out of the way 99% of the time, sneaks behind you and impales you with couple of swings. It also shoots two different types of beams; yellow one can be avoided by sensemove, and the other needs some time to charge. You'll know so by the 'eye' on its stomach turning yellow. This beam cannot be avoided, but you can stop it from charging by using a missile on the 'eye'. You can freeze its tentacle-like arms in place thus preventing it from flailing them around too often (I think); this may also prompt Rhedogian to use red 'eye' beam, at which point you can missile it and possibly stun it for a while for a lethal strike. When it takes enough damage, it'll fly off. Exit N, kill Snomers, exit E. POWER BOMB DOOR ALERT... umm, what do we do here? Immediately after you came into the room, there were three green pipes along N wall. One is broken, so morph ball into it. Bomb two switches in the vent to drain the tubes, then roll back out. You can shoot charged beam thru the tubes to power up charge switch. Another vent opens up, so morph ball into it and roll thru all the way to Sector 2 elevator. Hop into it, then board Sector 3 elevator. CHAPTER 06 ========================================================= CHAPTER 06 WLK06 SECTOR THREE GUIDE, PART 2 CHAPTER 06 ========================================================= CHAPTER 06 Exit W, kill Sovas, exit W into crater interior, go left and dispose/avoid Dessgeegas, kick jump up the wall, go right and roll into bomb slot, bomb it to be shot upward, exit S into NAV-B 13, save your game, exit S. Now you're on the bridge below the volcano, which was tossing rocks at you sometime ago. The bridge is now ruined, and you'll need to do speedboost & shinespark combo to jump across the large gap. Exit S, kill Sovas and Cyborg Zebesians in the corridor, exit E into floor observation room (to refresh your memory, it is where you fought Asborean for the first time). Kill another Asborean that enters the room, and then use the terminal which unlocks E door at Sector 3 elevator. Return to Sector 3 elevator thru NAV-B 13, then crater interior. When at the elevator, take E exit, kill Heat Bulls and Sovas... take E exit. One of your teammates is in trouble! Get near the lava pool for another scene of Rhedogian grabbing your teammate, then go 1PV and aim up towards Grapple Beam hook. USE OF GRAPPLE BEAM HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. When you latch onto Grapple Beam hook, press A or 2 with good timing to jump to the place of battle. Kill Sovas first and then focus on Rhedogian using same tactics as when you fought it for the first time. It'll fly away when it takes enough damage. Exit N, then E into NAV-B 14, exit E. Kill Magdollite, and then swing across using Grapple Beam hooks. Before taking N exit, jump off the ledge towards S and enter hidden path leading to ENERGY PART (07/16), then exit N. BLAST FURNACE OBSERVATION Drop down the hole, and shoot Grapple Beam hook to be able to grab onto the vent, then morph ball into it and roll into bomb slot. Bomb it for a power trip, and roll thru the pipe bombing the clamps in order to release Grappling Beam hooks. The pipe ends with you dropping in next to a terminal. Operate it to open the door below, leading into the room where you released those Grapple Beam hooks. Drop down the hole again, and exit N. Aim at the first Grapple Beam hook... BOSS BATTLE - VORASH Boss' attacks: a) Looks at you from the lava and spits out some fireballs, then screams a little revealing Grapple Beam hook in its mouth b) Leaps out from lava doing bombing runs. c) Lunges at the platform you're on and scurries along trying to devour you. Weak points are purple gems on its body. First part of the battle is quite easy; wait for Vorash to peek out from lava and spit some fireballs, then grapple the hook in its mouth to fish it out. While its stunned, deliver two charge shots to the gems. Repeat again to remove about 60% of its health, at which point Vorash devours the hook, so no more fishing. Now Vorash will be doing the scurry-to-devour attack. Sensemove to avoid it in order to come behind its back, meaning you get to shoot at the purple gems. Shoot charged shots to remove a good portion of its health and keep at it to defeat it. Lava level will lower, hook onto Grapple Beam hooks and jump towards N hole in the wall. Go left, jump kick up the walls, and take N exit to NAV-B 22. Exit N, and grapple onto the hook to jump across (otherwise Sandfang will eat you up), and exit N. ENVIRONMENTAL TEST FLOOR Kill two Dessgeegas, and then exterminate all Sandfangs. There's a crane in NW corner of the area. Currently it is set in such a way that part with Grapple Beam hook is turned E. Aim up at the other part and missile it until Grapple Beam hook is turned W. Grapple onto it to land on W catwalk - examine the terminal to change the area's layout revealing N exit. Missile the crane so that Grapple Beam hook is turned NE; at this point you can reach N exit. Kill some Mellas and exit N into... DESERT REFINERY This is a battle heavy portion; scale the catwalks fighting Heat Bulls and Super Zebesians as you go. When you can't go any further, aim up and grapple the hook to jump on ledge above. Squish more Heat Bulls and Sovas on the walls. A similar setup to the one from before... Left segmented pillar moves clockwise, and right segmented pillar moves counterclockwise. Kick jump between wall and right pillar to get access to catwalk with the terminal that unlocks N exit, then kick jump between the wall and left pillar to get access to said exit. FG-1000s and FG-IIs litter the area. Scrap them all, then do speedboost & shinespark combo at end of the walkway to get to the vent leading W. At the vent junction go right to nail MISSILE TANK (34/70), then take a left to N exit leading into NAV-B 23. Head N into another walkway guarded by FG-1000s and FG-IIs. At the top exit N and tap sensemove to avoid Rhedogian's attack. It retains most of the moves from before, but it can now also rise up in the air and release missile salvos with slight homing ability. Once severely weakened, it'll fly up to a specific point in the air. Missile it a few times and it'll fall down somewhere. Step on the elevator to be taken down. Go N and kill Dragotex, then cross the chasm by using three Grapple Beam hooks, then exit N. Drop down the ledge in the area, take E exit. Squish Sovas, kick jump up the shaft, swat down Mellas and their hive, blow up Heat Bull and more Sovas, then drop down the other shaft, then morph ball below the door and take E exit into NAV-B 12. Exit E, and progress past four Magdollites. Remember the two N platforms I told you about when you first went thru the area? You'll come across them now, and since you have Grapple Beam, can now swing across. Simply follow the trail of Grapple Beam hooks which take you to an elevated portion of rock leading to E exit. Walk thru rocky corridor, icing up five Magdollites, take N exit into NAV-B 24, save your game, exit N. PIXEL HUNT - Point Wii remote at the screen and aim at the thing above the door. Exit N into a walkway with FG-IIs creating some barriers. They cannot be destroyed yet, but shooting them with charged beam will freeze their laser ports, allowing you to pass. Repeat two more times and exit N. GEOTHERMAL POWER PLANT SUPER MISSILE LOCK ALERT. Climb the stairs, and turn around to find ENERGY TANK (5/5), then grapple the hook to swing across into S niche to find ACCEL CHARGE (4/6). Drop down and exit N. PIXEL HUNT - Aim Wii remote at the screen, and lock on to Anthony. Now without lowering or raising your crosshairs, keep looking left until you lock on the exit. What exit? STAND AT THE EDGE OF THE PLATFORM, in order to avoid Ridley's flame breath. Enter 1PV and look around for a while to get a hint from your ally about some magma port being blown to smitheerens. Find it on the wall and lock on it. USE OF SUPER MISSILES HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Super Missiles are used in same way as regular missiles. When locked on, hold A to charge and release when fully charged to deliver a devastating blow. It takes five missiles per shot, though. USE OF PLASMA BEAM HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Plasma beam's secondary effect is passing thru enemies. BOSS BATTLE - RIDLEY Boss' attacks: a) Flies up in the air and charges a fire bomb, which falls at center of the platform, releasing a shockwave. b) While flying, tries to impale you with its tail. c) When finished with being airborne, swoops down into the ground, delivering devastating blow at landing. d) While grounded, performs sweeps across the area with its tail. e) While grounded, performs punching/grabbing combos, also possible to attack with sweeping tail. f) While grounded, breathes fire in an arc before it. g) Enters invincibility mode (gains a blackish color). Get rid of it with Super Missile. h) Performs dash grabs. If successful, smashes Samus against the wall delivering huge damage. Samus' charged blast inflicts damage to Ridley as well if it isn't invincible. Sensemove will become your best friend for the battle. Ridley spends some moments in the air, then comes down to get close and personal, and takes to the air again. When Ridley is in the air, keep shooting charged beams at it to take out chunks of its health. Jump over fire bombs and do sensemoves if it tries to tail-impale you or land on you. Ridley's melee attacks are deadly and you must do your best to avoid getting hit or grabbed (though latter isn't so bad as Ridley takes some damage too). At one point in the fight Ridley becomes blackish in color, resisting all attacks. Jeremy R. was first one who mailed me with the tip on destroying its armor - Super Missile it. Or wait and it'll eventually wear off. Dispose of Ridley... Grapple onto a hook towards S, and drop down. Go downstairs and remove Super Missile lock. Enter corridor behind the lock, and drop down the shaft to the right. Kill some Sovas, and drop down another ledge. Slide down via left wall and Samus grabs onto vent's ledge eventually. Roll into it for MISSILE TANK (35/70), then return to the shaft. Kick jump up the shaft and spy for charge switch on right side. Opposite to it is a ledge you can grab on, then enter 1PV and deliver charged shot to that switch. This opens up a door above, so morph ball under it, fall into bomb slot, bomb it and away we go. Kill Sovas and exit E into Sector 3 elevator. Exit E, kill Heat Bulls and Sovas, exit E. Grapple the hook and remove Super Missile lock on left wall to open up a niche with a terminal. Operate it to open the door on S side. Grapple S-most hook to land in a niche with ENERGY PART (08/16). Drop down, exit W twice and take Sector 2 elevator. Follow the person into Sector 1 elevator. CHAPTER 07 ========================================================= CHAPTER 07 WLK07 SECTOR ONE GUIDE, PART 2 CHAPTER 07 ========================================================= CHAPTER 07 Exit E into NAV-B, exit E, then N thrice. A new enemy attacks; this is Mighty Griptian (basically same as Griptian, but is green in color and has a red eye). Exit N twice into the tree area. Person you're following escapes thru N exit... Mighty Griptian will roll down the path. Kill it along with Geemers that gimp your position, then scale the circular path and enter speedboost. Shinespark straight up at the end of the path to land on a ledge with MISSILE TANK (36/70). Drop all the way down and exit N twice. The area is infested with Grippers, so advance with caution. Near the hill you can grapple on a hook to swing up on a ledge. As morph ball enter the hole on this ledge, bomb the rock and then item box for MISSILE TANK (37/70). Continue over to the left and take N exit. Kill three Side Hoppers, exit N into NAV-B 06. Save your game, exit N twice. PIXEL HUNT - Aim Wii remote at the screen and check out terminal behind you. USE OF SPACE JUMP HAS BEEN SAMUS'D. USE OF SCREW ATTACK HAS BEEN SAMUS'D. Space Jump allows Samus to continue jumping in mid-air. You can reach great distances with good timing. And Screw Attack sends energy waves out from Samus' body while spin-jumping; it causes great damage to nearby enemies. First drop down below, go morph ball and search around right side to find a vent thru which you can roll. It leads to item box with MISSILE TANK (38/70). Return thru the vent, and now space jump across to other side of the bridge. Operate the terminal to extend the bridge, then exit N twice into an elevator. CHAPTER 08 ========================================================= CHAPTER 08 WLK08 BIOWEAPON RESEARCH CENTER, PART 1 CHAPTER 08 ========================================================= CHAPTER 08 Exit E into NAV-B 25, save your game, exit N twice for a scene. CHAPTER 09 ========================================================= CHAPTER 09 WLK09 SECTOR ONE GUIDE, PART 3 CHAPTER 09 ========================================================= CHAPTER 09 Exit S twice, kill Super Kihunters, exit S into NAV-B 06, exit S, kill Super Kihunters, exit S, grapple the hook to land on a hill, and stop. Turn left and space jump to a ledge above N exit to reach item box with ENERGY PART (09/16). Space jump to the S and exit S twice to reach the tree area. Dispose of Mighty Griptians and Geemers, then exit S thrice. Careful now... tap Dpad to avoid Rhedogian's initial attack. Smash it up for good this time! When defeated, it drops SEEKER MISSILE UPGRADE. Seeker Missile launches multiple rockets simultaneously; first you need to charge up Super Missile, and when multiple targets are locked, release to fire! Exit S thrice, then W once into NAV-B 02, exit W and board Sector 1 elevator, then board Sector 2 elevator. CHAPTER 10 ========================================================= CHAPTER 10 WLK10 SECTOR TWO GUIDE, PART 2 CHAPTER 10 ========================================================= CHAPTER 10 The purpose of this visit to Sector 2 is the Seeker Missile door that we spotted in the room with a corpse of Gigafraug. To get there, go like this... exit N, kill Barisute (a new version of hopper), and then destroy Super Missile lock on right wall. Morph ball into the vent for MISSILE TANK (39/70), exit N into NAV-B 15, exit N, and advance until you get on the ledge in middle of the area. Now go S, slide down the slope, exit S twice into water tank room, exit W, jump over floating ice piece to other shore, exit W, kill Gigafraug (now a cinch with Screw Attack), exit S thrice, clean away two Barisutes, and jump up the ledge leading to Seeker Missile door. Shoot away the Seeker Missile lock, exit N, exit W. Kill two Snomers, and a gravity field will activate, forcing Samus to stand on ceiling. Left and right directions remain unchanged, but now up becomes down and down becomes up. Climb back up towards right, and space jump across to W exit. Here kick jump up the shaft, then look for a vent with a blue square around it. Use the platforms to space jump to the opening and morph ball into it to collect MISSILE TANK (40/70). Roll back out and use the platforms to get as high up as you can, followed by space jumping to reach W exit. Screw attack three Barisute in the room and jump to W exit. Jump down the ledge and the gravity now pulls you down; controls return to normal, but you can't jump as high, you can't speedboost, and missiles don't work as well. Exit N, smash some FG-IIs, and watch for Cyclaws around middle of the corridor, exit N. Screw attack two Kyratians to kill them, exit E. Kill Snomers and Barisute, then grapple the hook and kick jump up the wall, kill another Barisute and some Snomers on ledge above, and stand close to ledge on the left. Space jump across and MASH THAT 2 BUTTON to make it across. Grapple another hook to pull yourself higher, exit E. Gravity pull disappears once you drop down the ledge towards N, exit N twice into NAV-B 26, save the game, exit N. Hmm, smells like boss battle... Kick jump your way up to exit at the top, but a TV comes to life... BOSS BATTLE - NIGHTMARE Boss' attacks: a) Gravity pull. Dissipates when generator is frozen. b) Fires 360degree or 720degree beam sweeping along the ledge Samus is on. c) Fire energy balls with some homing ability. Number of projectiles increases as Nightmare's HP is depleted. d) Crashes on a ledge Samus is on and tries to ram her. Immediately lock on to it to get its HP gauge, then run left and jump over the edge to the ledge below. STAY BETWEEN THE WALLS here, as it's the safest spot I found. Boss can't reach you when it tries to ram you, its energy balls are avoided by tapping Dpad for sensemoves, and beam sweep is made stupid by kick jumping between the two walls. Shoot some charged shots, which will be pulled towards Nightmare's gravity generator on its tail. After sustaining enough its, the generator will get frozen and gravity pull subsides. Lock on to Nightmares screen and super missile it. Screen has to be facing you, or else your Super Missile will get deflected. Deliver four or five direct hits and generator starts working again. Repeat by shooting charged shots which get puller towards generator until it's frozen, and then super missile Nightmare's screen until it's defeated. It's possible you may need to repeat the procedure for the third time. Return to the top, exit S, exit N twice to board the elevator. CHAPTER 11 ========================================================= CHAPTER 11 WLK11 SECTOR ZERO GUIDE CHAPTER 11 ========================================================= CHAPTER 11 Exit N into NAV-B 27, save your game, and keep on going N. Eventually... PIXEL HUNT - Aim Wii remote at the screen, and look left to spot a Metroid. Some spectacular scenes occur, which I'm not spoiling. When done, start going S and screw attack into Super Zebesians you come across. Suddenly the corridor will start breaking apart and Samus will be drawn into open space... USE OF GRAVITY SUIT HAS BEEN SAMUS'D. Gravity Suit negates the effects of water and gravity and further reduces damage of enemy attacks. The longest a Super Zebesian was able to hold its breath was three minutes. None lived to tell the tale though. Ignore Super Zebesians ahead and worry about getting to S exit. Exit S twice to NAV-B 27, exit S, exit W to board Sector 2 elevator. CHAPTER 12 ========================================================= CHAPTER 12 WLK12 SECTOR TWO GUIDE, PART 3 CHAPTER 12 ========================================================= CHAPTER 12 Exit S, exit N, drop all the way down, attempt to leave... BOSS BATTLE - NIGHTMARE, ROUND 2 a) Gravity pull. Has no effect on your movement. b) Deploys its generator as a black hole, causing your beams to be sucked into it. Black hole dissipates after a while. c) Fire black energy balls with some homing ability. Number of projectiles increases as Nightmare's HP is depleted. d) When generator is frozen, it falls to the ground, and will now attempt to ram you. e) Fires an energy beam across the room. Stay on the ground and pour charged shots out, they'll autohome on the generator, eventually freezing it, causing Nightmare to lose the momentum and crash to the ground. Find a suitable spot from which you can target its face and super missile it. You'll likely have to sensemove to avoid getting rammed. Wait for Nightmare to get airborne, avoid its black energy balls until boss falls down to the ground again, super missile its face and continue until defeated. If boss deploys gravity pull again, just freeze the generator. In the rare event that black hole is deployed, get on one of higher ledges and position yourself in such a way that Nightmare will be between you and black hole. That way your beam shots have a chance of scoring. Exit S into NAV-B 26, exit S twice and we're back to gravity portion of Sector 2. Can't touch me this time, heheh. Exit W, go left and stop at the ledge. Grapple the hook and when you jump off, kick jump your way up to reach MISSILE TANK (41/70). Drop all the way down past Snomers and Barisutes to W exit. Kill two Kyratians in the room, and then collect E-RECOVERY TANK (2/3) located in a niche on N wall. Exit S and gain speedboost to destroy two pillars (Cyclaws are around these two pillars) with nothing to gain from it. Exit S, exit E four times, exit S, drop down the ledge, kill two Barisutes. Take the other N exit, exit N, exit E, jump across the lake to other shore (or use floating ice piece), exit E into water tank room, exit N twice, speedboost up the slope, exit N, drop down to the left, exit S into NAV-B 15, exit S twice, board Sector 2 elevator, and then hop into Sector 1 elevator. CHAPTER 13 ========================================================= CHAPTER 13 WLK13 SECTOR ONE GUIDE, PART 4 CHAPTER 13 ========================================================= CHAPTER 13 Exit E into NAV-B 02, exit E, exit N thrice (room where you obtained Seeker Missiles), grapple onto the hook thru broken glass, and jump on the ledge to bomb item box with MISSILE TANK (42/70). Now, morph ball into the pipe above you and roll thru it until you fall out. Go left and drop down the ledge. To your right is a pipe that leads to Subterranean control room (this is my reminder to where you are). Go left to gain some distance, turn right, go speedboost and shinespark straight up at the same spot where you fell down from the ledge. Samus will break the ceiling and land on another ledge above with MISSILE TANK (43/70). Drop all the way down, go left and then S. Exit S into scrap block room, destroy Wavers and morph ball into the tunnel on W wall. Roll left, then use the help of morph ball bombs to jump higher, roll left some more until you come to short passage leading to waterfall room. Grapple across the chasm via two hooks to collect ENERGY PART (10/16). Drop down to the right, kick jump up the elevator shaft, exit N thrice into NAV-B 04, exit N. Demolish enemies, then morph ball into the tube on left side to reach the platform with the terminal. Operate it to change room's layout, then remove Super Missile lock in far corner of the room. Space jump across to get MISSILE TANK (44/70). Drop down, morph ball thru the hole to fall further down, exit N to biological experiment floor. Climb the circular path and at the top jump into the hole, then exit N twice into NAV-B 06. Exit N, at junction go right, exit N. Get wet and go right eliminating Skulteras and Frondana underwater. With Frondana removed, speedboost to the right thru the grating to nab MISSILE TANK (45/70). Jump out of the water and exit E, then exit N into a forested area. This is the room where you fought first Groganch in the game. Get up on the ledge where the terminal is located, and then look towards W to find a charge switch; space jump over there. Shoot a charged shot into the switch which will cause three platforms behind you to pop out from a wall. Use space jump to get access to ENERGY PART (11/16). Drop down and kick jump up the shaft, exit N into NAV-B 07, exit N, kill Zeros and Kihunters. Don't drop down! Instead space jump to the right to nail MISSILE TANK (46/70). Drop down, exit N, roll into bomb slot, bomb it, exit S, clean away Zeros and Kihunters, exit S, exit E, clean up Reos. Behind one of glass screen you'll see a charge switch. Since we have Wave Beam upgrade, shoot a charged shot into the switch to lower a portion of another glass screen. Enter it, smoosh three Poison Grippers and collect MISSILE TANK (47/70). Exit N, destroy two Frondanas, exit N. Circle around the area and go as far SW as you can. See the yellow stripe on the ground? Stand on it and speedboost N, breaking thru a barrier and taking some Geemers for the ride as well. Exit N twice to end up on a balcony with MISSILE TANK (48/70). To get back to objective at hand... exit S thrice, kill two Frondanas, exit S, kill Reos, exit W, exit N, kill Zeros and Kihunters, exit N, fall down the shaft, exit S, kill Zeros and Kihunters, exit S into NAV-B 07, exit S twice, exit W, exit S, at junction go S, exit S into NAV-B 06. Finally go N thrice to enter elevator bound for bioweapon research center. CHAPTER 14 ========================================================= CHAPTER 14 WLK14 BIOWEAPON RESEARCH CENTER, PART 2 CHAPTER 14 ========================================================= CHAPTER 14 Exit N into NAV-B 25 to save game, exit N, scrap down FG-1000s and FG-IIs, exit N. PIXEL HUNT - Aim Wii remote at the screen and examine dead body slightly to the right. Climb the stairs and take upper N exit, collect MISSILE TANK (49/70), then kill about 15 Super Zebesians to unlock the door, exit S, take lower N door, and exit N into the elevator. Exit N to find what remains of Ridley. From ashes to ashed, indeed. Exit N, fo downstairs, and shoot charged beam into charge switch above the door. Activating the switch will unlock the door, but at the same ring lasers in the walls will activate. Sensemove to avoid them, exit N twice, shoot Seeker Missile at next door, exit N, shoot Seeker Missile at next door, exit N into NAV-B 28 to save your game. ATTENTION! THIS IS THE LAST SAVE YOU'LL MAKE BEFORE THE END OF THE GAME! Exit N twice. ROOM MW Approach the cell in NE corner, go 1PV and lock on the girl inside. Doing so will open another door... enter! BOSS BATTLE - METROID QUEEN Boss' attacks: a) Spawns Metroids. Begins with one, then two more, then three more. b) Slams the ground to shatter the ice off frozen Metroids. c) Attempts to ram you. d) Metroid can attach to Samus and rapidly drain her health. Change into morph ball and lay bombs to shake them off. I hate the first part with a passion. As soon as first Metroid is hatched, shoot it with charged beam to freeze, then use a Super Missile to kill it. When next two Metroids are hatched, switch to regular shots. You may become angry at how skilled Metroids are at dodging your shots - I think the best time to shoot them is after sensemoving their attacks. About 2~3 regular shots will freeze the Metroid, making it ripe to go away with Super Missile. Queen will frequently pound the ground to emit a shockwave which frees frozen Metroids. Kill all of them to move on to second part of the fight. Boss' attacks: a) Breathes fire in about 180degree arc, for 200 HP damages if it hits! b) Attempts to land on you. c) Attempts to ram you. Queen's weak points are purple crystals on the head. I think the best way to kill it is to lock on to any crystal and charge up Super Missile. Due to multiple targets being present a Seeker Missile will be used, hehe. Keep sniping the boss with Seeker Missiles until it's defeated (about five Seeker Missiles will do the job). Make sure to always stay to Queen's side in order not to get caught by its flame breath. Onto the next part! 1PV only for a moment. Shoot charged beams at Queen's belly until it rears back on its feet. Now remain calm and aim at Queen's mouth! As soon as it opens, shoot your Grapple Beam to be devoured. Once in Queen's stomach, your HP will rapidly begin to decrease. Press + to access map in order to take a breather. This is the point in the game that I've seen most players have problems with. The only weapon that can defeat the boss, but the game doesn't 'give' it to you because of some silly reason. USE OF POWER BOMBS HAS BEEN SAMUS'D. To use a Power Bomb, enter morph ball mode, hold 1 to charge and release when fully charged to emit a wide area blast. Metroid Queen is defeated. The girl you saw in the cell will escape thru W exit, so follow suit. Now take E exit (wonder what's with angle change), and take the unlocked N exit. Exit N, then exit W. You're almost done. 1PV scene will issue, in which some Desbrachians are attacking you. Lock on to the one closest to you and shoot it with Super / Seeker Missile. Once enough damage is dealt to Desbrachians, aim Wii remote in the direction where MB is standing (it's roughly in middle of the screen). Target crosshair will appear, so LOCK ON TO IT to end the scene. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- CONGRATULATIONS!!!! YOU'VE COMPLETED THE GAME SUCCESSFULLY! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- I hope I was able to provide you with enough info to complete the game without hassle. Following this to a T should have given you 71% in item completion. Completing the game will unlock GALLERY MODE (various pictures of stuff) and THEATER MODE (check all already viewed movies). The more % you have in item completion, the more stuff is added to Gallery. Watch the credits now. =============================================================================== =============================================================================== 06.) AFTER CREDITS... - G0600 =============================================================================== =============================================================================== After credits have rolled, Samus will appear next to her ship at the very start of BS. An innocent message about being able to use Power Bombs will appear as well. Your objective is to get to the room where Adam was controlling the operation, since something important to Samus was left there. Let's check + map for amount of items left... Main Sector - 3 Sector 1 - 7 Sector 2 - 7 Sector 3 - 10 Bioweapon research facility - 2 As an added bonus all not-collected items are marked as blue dots on your map. CHAPTER 15 ========================================================= CHAPTER 15 WLK15 MAIN SECTOR GUIDE, PART 2 CHAPTER 15 ========================================================= CHAPTER 15 Unless you enter completely new area of BS, I will now stop mentioning which enemies you fight, except in the rooms where items are to be collected. From your ship, exit E, exit N twice, exit E twice, exit N twice; kill Reos and Geemers in the room, then stop. An item is hidden here, and you get it by speedboost & shinespark straight up combo up the elevator shaft. Backtrack S a bit so you have enough running distance to go speedboost. Collect MISSILE TANK (50/70), then drop all the way down. Exit N twice, exit W; kill Geemers in the big elevator room. Ride the elevator to the top, step out from the elevator and look E thru 1PV. Shoot charged shot at the charge switch thru the window to raise nearby door, getting access to ACCEL CHARGE (5/6). Exit N into NAV-B 01, exit N twice (this is area where you fought Brug Mass, exit E. Door will lock behind you, the elevator isn't usable, and it appears you're stuck. Game will point out Power Bomb door in the corner, so go morph ball and deliver a power bomb near the door. Desbrachian will deploy from the shell and try to mutilate you. It can teleport, can attempt to jump on you and has a vicious combo of melee moves. As its energy is depleted, it becomes more and more red in color. Eventually it'll keel over as in pain, so this is your cue to run up to it and perform a lethal strike, otherwise Desbrachian curls into a shell and recovers all energy. When you kill it, exit E, then exit N. BOTTLE SHIP RESIDENTIAL AREA Kill all Super Kihunters until they stop spawning, then stand close to glass fence in center of the area, and press down on Dpad twice to get some distance from the fence. Hold right on Dpad and go into speedboost, then shinespark straight up. When Samus loses shinespark momentum, hold up on Dpad and start pressing 2 to space jump towards little platform in the middle so that Samus grabs on the ledge. Pull up to get ENERGY PART (12/16), then drop down and leave thru the other corridor. Snipe some Cyclaws on ceiling, exit N into NAV-B 29. Save your game, exit N, kill Cyclaws on ceiling, exit N twice into the elevator bound for Sector 2. ITEM COMPLETION IS 74%. CHAPTER 16 ========================================================= CHAPTER 16 WLK16 SECTOR TWO GUIDE, PART 4 CHAPTER 16 ========================================================= CHAPTER 16 Power bomb the door in SE corner and squish Desbrachian. Afterwards exit E, and you're in already explored area of Sector 2. Your aim is to return to other Sector 2 elevator which connects to Main Sector, but we need to collect 7 items here first. Exit N, jump all the way down, exit S into NAV-B 26, exit S twice, exit W twice, exit S twice, exit E four times, exit S (room with corpse of Gigafraug, which is now gone strangely). Drop down the ledge, go right and exit N twice. Power bomb the door along left side of long corridor and kill Desbrachian. Exit W and nail ENERGY PART (13/16). Exit E thrice into water tank, exit N twice, speedboost up the slope, exit N. Drop down to the right, exit E (Fumbleye can now be easily killed since you have Wave Beam), exit N twice (room where you fought first Gigafraug), jump down, exit N into NAV-B 16, exit N, super missile the block of ice barring the exit, exit N (room where you fought first Kyratian). Before you tackle the exit, morph ball into the little opening to the right of the door and roll thru it for MISSILE TANK (51/70). Meh, I missed this one on the playthru I used to make this guide. Roll back out, exit S twice into NAV-B 16, exit S, make your way to the top, and then space jump across to upper N exit, leading into NAV-B 18, exit N, exit E, exit N thrice. This is the room with a big load of test tubes with specimens inside. Fumbleye has taken up residence here as well, so dispose of it. Then deploy power bomb which will destroy all specimens; doing so will drop a barrier guarding MISSILE TANK (52/70). Space jump into little niche to claim it. Kick jump back up, then exit N, exit E into NAV-B 17, exit E (big snowy area), exit N. Shoot Super Missile lock in the ground of the corridor further on to collect MISSILE TANK (53/70). Exit N into materials storehouse room. Before going downstairs, space jump across to little platform with a hole leading to MISSILE TANK (54/70). Drop down and go to the area with containers. On some containers there are item boxes; one is hiding ENERGY PART (14/16). Jump over to where maintenance robot used to be, kick jump up the shaft, exit N, exit E into the elevator, exit N into NAV-B 20, exit N thrice into NAV-B 21, exit N into materials transfer lift room (you fought Rhedogian here for the first time), examine the terminal to go up, exit N, exit E. In this room you had to empty four tubes to be able to shoot charge switch. Deploy power bomb and kill Desbrachian. Exit E and collect ENERGY PART (15/16), exit W, then morph ball into tunnel on N wall and roll thru it to end up at Sector 2 elevator, connecting to Main Sector. Board it, and then board Sector 1 elevator. ITEM COMPLETION IS 81%. CHAPTER 17 ========================================================= CHAPTER 17 WLK17 SECTOR ONE GUIDE, PART 5 CHAPTER 17 ========================================================= CHAPTER 17 Exit E into NAV-B 02, exit E, exit N thrice, grapple the hook thru broken glass, morph ball into the vent and roll thru it. Drop down the ledge, turn right and morph ball into the pipe, roll thru it to end up in subterranean control room. Power bomb the N door and kill Desbrachian, exit N and claim ENERGY PART (16/16), exit S, morph ball into pipe you just used, roll until you get to bomb slot, fall into it, and bomb it to end up in waterfall room. Exit S thrice. This is the room where you spot the cute thing for the first time. Kill all Wavers and Geemers, then go to the slope. Turn N and find the unobstructed running line - speedboost up the slope to destroy spiked vines, and at the top turn around. Look down the slope's ceiling and you'll see Super Missile lock in the ceiling. While you're sliding down, go 1PV and super missile the lock. It may take you a few tries; when the lock is shot, Grapple Beam hook descends. Grapple onto it, wait until it pulls you up far enough, destroy item box and collect MISSILE TANK (55/70). Drop all the way down, exit E. Blow away Super Missile lock on E door, then stand as far W as you can in this room so you have a good running distance. Go into speedboost and as soon as you exit E, shinespark straight up. Hold right on Dpad to land on a ledge with item box hiding MISSILE TANK (56/70). Drop all the way down and exit E. Take the left of two N exits, and kick jump up the shaft to collect MISSILE TANK (57/70). Drop back down, exit S, then exit E thrice, exit N three times to end up in waterfall area. Kick jump up the shaft on N side, but don't take the door. Space jump over to the ledge in NW corner, then grapple across using two hooks and morph ball into the tunnel you'll find. Roll in, and go left at T-junction, fall into bomb slot, bomb it and you're in control room for waterfall area. Exit S, destroy Super Missile lock on left wall, and enter small room with MISSILE TANK (58/70), exit S. This is the area where the elevator squished one of Ghalmanian enemies. Squish all Geemers crawling around on upper level, drop down the shaft and kill more Geemers in lower level (in this part of the room look and you'll see a shaft above you). Exit S and kill three Bulls, then go S some more to gain some running distance. Turn N, speedboost into lower level of elevator room and then shinespark straight up. Samus will break thru the metal plating on upper level. Drop back down into the hole and hold left or right on Dpad to grab onto the ledge somewhere around the middle of the fall. Morph ball into the hole on left side and bomb the item box for MISSILE TANK (59/70). Return to lower level of the elevator room, exit S three times, morph ball thru S exit into NAV-B 04. Exit N, morph ball thru N exit, exit N into biological experiment floor, climb the circular path, at the top jump into the hole. Now you're in the room where you fought King Kihunter, exit N twice into NAV-B 06. Exit N, go right at T-junction, exit N, exit E, exit N twice into NAV-B 07, exit N twice, roll into bomb slot, bomb it to be shot upwards, exit S twice, exit E, exit N thrice into NAV-B 08, exit N. Power bomb the door along N wall and kill Desbrachian, then take the right of two N exits and claim E-RECOVERY TANK (3/3). Exit S twice into NAV-B 08, exit S thrice, exit W, exit N twice, jump into the hole in the shaft, exit S twice into NAV-B 07, exit S twice, exit W, exit S, take the other N exit, exit N twice into the elevator for bioweapon research center. ITEM COMPLETION IS 88%. CHAPTER 18 ========================================================= CHAPTER 18 WLK18 BIOWEAPON RESEARCH CENTER, PART 3 CHAPTER 18 ========================================================= CHAPTER 18 Exit N into NAV-B 25, exit N twice, take lower N exit, exit N into elevator. Exit N, go upstairs and exit W, exit N. This room has upper and lower level; on upper level you'll notice a pillar with holograms on it. But there is hologram on the back side of the pillar. Enter it and kick jump up, then morph ball into the tunnel to get MISSILE TANK (60/70). Fall thru the hole into lower level of the room. There are three octagon-shaped tiles on E side of the floor. Missile middle one for MISSILE TANK (61/70). Now return to Bioweapon research facility elevator connect to Sector 2. From there return to Sector 2 elevator connected to Main Sector. And from there take Sector 3 bound elevator. ITEM COMPLETION IS 90%. CHAPTER 19 ========================================================= CHAPTER 19 WLK19 SECTOR THREE GUIDE, PART 3 CHAPTER 19 ========================================================= CHAPTER 19 Exit E twice. This is the area where one of your allies was attacked by Rhedogian. Power bomb the door in E wall and kill Desbrachian. Exit E to collect MISSILE TANK (62/70). Back to Sector 3 elevator, and exit W. Roll into bomb slot, bomb it. Go left, roll under the door (don't fall all the way down, there's nothing but lava there) and kick jump your way up to emerge in the room close to where you fought Ridley, exit S. In the walkway kill all FG-IIs, then speedboost thru S and immediately shinespark straight up. Hold right on Dpad start tap 2 to start space jumping in order to land or grab onto the ledge above. Collect MISSILE TANK (63/70), then drop down. Exit S into NAV-B 24, exit S, exit W into big lava room. Walk left to the edge and go 1PV. Look down to spot path, so jump down there. This was actually the path you took when certain monster was chasing you and you needed to be fast on your feet. Anyway, go left until you get to the spot where that same monster broke down few rocks. Power bomb the area to shatter remaining rock formation, revealing MISSILE TANK (64/70). Now go right until you exit E. Kill Heat Bulls in the area, and then remove Super Missile lock in the ground to gain MISSILE TANK (65/70). Take the higher W exit. Go thru the walkway until you see Mella on other side of the glass. Shoot it, then go 1PV and find a charge switch. Shoot it with charged shot, which will remove the barrier in the ground a bit left. Morph ball into the tunnel and claim MISSILE TANK (66/70). Roll back out, go left, grapple across to other side and exit W. Power bomb the door in W wall and kill Desbrachian, exit W and claim ACCEL CHARGE (6/6). Exit E, grapple across to other side, exit E, take lower W exit into big lava room. Go all the way left and exit W. Exit W twice, then kill three Dessgeegas in the room (this is just a reminder of where you should be). On N end of the area use the two ledges to get up into higher corridor (space jump will help), then exit S. Go near the fence and space jump over it by holding down on Dpad. As soon as you're across the fence, press up on Dpad and try to land in the opening with MISSILE TANK (67/70). Drop down and drown all Magdollites, then morph ball into the tunnel in SE corner. When out, kick jump up the hole, and grapple across to other side using three hooks. Exit N, drop down the ledge, take immediate E exit, and kick jump up the left shaft. When on higher ledge, kill Mellas and their hive on the right, then return to the edge and aim up. Remove Super Missile lock and kick jump further up to get MISSILE TANK (68/70). Now go past deceased Mella hive and drop down the right shaft (kill Heat Bulls and Sovas along the way). Stand close to the egde of lava pool and space jump with good timing to the left, so that Samus grabs onto the ledge. Pull yourself up and collect MISSILE TANK (69/70). Kick jump up the right shaft and roll under the door, exit E into NAV-B 12. Exit E into big lava room, and keep going right until you exit E. Go down the corridor and exit W into floor observation room, exit W again. Clear Sovas and Cyborg Zebesians from the corridor, then look along right wall to find a vent with yellow edges. Morph ball into it to collect MISSILE TANK (70/70). Yeah, this was also an item I failed to notice to collect during the playthru I used to make this guide. Oh well. These are all items and your completion is now 100%. Now make your way back to Sector 3 elevator and board it. ITEM COMPLETION IS 100%. CHAPTER 20 ========================================================= CHAPTER 20 WLK15 MAIN SECTOR GUIDE, PART 3 CHAPTER 20 ========================================================= CHAPTER 20 I advice that you go down to Sector 1 or Sector 2 and use nearby NAV-Bs to save your game. When / If done so, return here. Exit S, power bomb the door along E wall and kill last Desbrachian, exit E, exit N twice into the elevator. Exit N into a long corridor featuring series on increasingly harder battles. 1st segment - 2x Mighty Griptian and Ghalmanian, then again 2x Mighty Griptian and Ghalmanian 2nd segment - 2x Asborean (screw attack), then 4x Cyborg Zebesian 3rd segment - 4x Kyratian (screw attack), then 4x Kyratian 4th segment - 8x Super Kihunter, then 4x Super Zebesians 5th segment - Rhedogian, then Rhedogian Bluehog submitted following suggestion: Before opening a door and triggering enemies, charge up a power bomb. When the enemies appear, release it. If the second wave can be killed in one hit with the screw attack, use it on them and repeat for the next door. If however the second wave isn't instantly killed by the screw attack (such as Rhedogian) then just use the screw attack to stay out of the way and airborne until you can use another power bomb to instantly kill them. In all cases, have a power bomb charged when activating the next group of enemies. With this the mad rush ends, so exit N into NAV-B 30. Save the game, exit N. CONTROL BRIDGE Drop down the ledge and try going somewhere. BOSS BATTLE - PHANTOON Boss' attacks: a) Shoots blue energy balls with some homing ability. b) Summons three little Phantoon hands, that punch you or slam you against the ground. Just screw attack them. c) Sweeps across the ground with tentacles. Stay on S end of the room to completely avoid them. d) Summons a black vortex, which emits energy if you happen to stand in middle of it. Move away from them if Phantoon happens to summon one below you. Phantoon will first summon three little hands, so promptly delete them with screw attack. Then patiently wait until Phantoon destroys entire glass part of control bridge, and use sensemove to avoid blue energy balls. Lock on to Phantoon's big eye to get its health gauge and start shooting. The eye is its weak point, by the way. Despite being an optional boss, I didn't find Phantoon to be particularly hard. At no time did I bother by locking on to its eye in order to Super Missile it. And it's not like I had ample time to do so, heh; there was just too much crap flying at me. All I did was kept being mobile, sensemoving when necessary, screw attacking little hand buddies, and tapping 1 to shoot the eye. With Phantoon gone, grapple the hook that appeared to exit S. Exit E, then exit N twice to find an elevator. Board it to be taked down, and it stops suddenly. Go morph ball and deploy a Power Bomb to blow everything to smitheerens. Drop down and exit S twice. The view will switch to one behind Samus; go thru the door leading to Adam's location, which is now finally unlocked. OMG, a self-destruct sequence. Samus is armed with a pea-shooter, which stuns the target for few seconds. Her Power Suit and all upgrades are gone, and you have only 99 HP, hehe. Exit E for the showdown. Glass will shatter, at the same time 5 minute countdown timer appears, and a woman's voice tells you nicely that it would be about time to evacuate. Drop down towards S, exit W, exit S thrice to end up in big elevator room. A Cyborg Zebesian is latched onto the elevator's door, and it'll start to shoot you. Sensemove its shots, and shoot it yourself to stun it. Drop all the way down (another Cyborg Zebesian here) and exit E. Cross the bridge and when you reach half point, two Cyborg Zebesians appear, each on one side. Stun the one to the S, and run past it, exit S. Exit S again, drop down the ledge, two Cyborg Zebesians are lathched onto a wall, but just ignore them, exit S, go downstairs and exit S. As you run left around the corner, an emergency door will be lowered. Press 2 to slide under it; if it closes completely, keep shooting it with pea-shooter to force it to rise. Then you'll encounter a wreckage blocking your path; press 2 to slide under it. Slide under / shoot two more emergency doors, exit W. Make your way to W exit; if you by chance fall all the way down, two Cyborg Zebesians will appear. To get out, slide under the grating with charge switch, and jump up. Slide under the wreckage, shoot the emergency door, stun Cyborg Zebesian that falls down and shoot the emergency door behind it, slide under the wreckage, slide under / shoot the emergency door, exit S. Navigate your way past the debris (don't touch flaming debris, as it hurts) and ignore two Cyborg Zebesians taking potshots at you, exit S. Exit W and keep running left towards your ship. YOUR ITEM COMPLETION IS 100%. Doing so unlocks the Hard Mode, and adds all pictures to Gallery. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! SEE YOU IN NEXT MISSION!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- BTW, on hard mode you don't get any item collectibles.
