IMPACT CRATER TIPS! ( SORRY it's SO LONG BUT IT WILL! HELP! I PR
Have you ever been going through the impact crater and as you start climbing up the room on the platforms a fission metroid ends up re-spawning after you kill it the first time (which I assume you did) and knocking you off the platform into the red-orange phazon sitting below? Well I am submitting this cheat to help you avoid getting knocked back down so you can reach prime earlier (note:Metroid Prime is NOT a highly evolved Metroid but instead a highly evolved species very similar to a Metroid and Metroid Prime IS the reason Phazon is spreading on Tallon IV causing Other species on Tallon IV to either mutate or die.) Anyway sorry about getting sidetracked, back to the tip, after you kill the first fission Metroid as you walk into the room where they are spawning at kill the first fission metroid easily with a power bomb and quickly start climbing up until you reach the tooth looking platform in the wall right before you hop onto the red and black floating platform and wait for the newly spawned fission Metroid to get up to where you are and quickly morph into your morph ball state and wait for the Metroid to start doing it's little dance thing that signifies it's going to try to latch onto you!! But your stock of power bombs will ensure it will die before successful latching and absorption now after the second Fission Metroid kill quickly scurry across those floating platforms by jumping onto them simultaneously and when you see the first red color-coded door you have to go inside before actually reaching the top if you want to have a full reserve of missiles before facing Metroid Prime and trust me when I say that your beam combos WILL be key to defeating Prime with more ease then usual. After restocking your missile supply go forward through the hallway to your left in the game until you see a Fission Metroid going back and forth and make sure it sees you and comes after you because then you will be able to kill it and yet ANOTHER spawned Fission Metroid from below but make sure both Fission Metroids are in range for your power bomb to take them both out in one blast of energy. (note: the easiest way to take them both out at once is to have one of them or both if you get lucky come at you and try to latch on and right before one does fire your power bomb and they 98.9% of the time both get destroyed in the blast.(note: 98.9% of the time because very rarely the other will move away while the other one is either latched or killed as it did latch, so basically timing is crucial.) and after they both are decimated in the blast just climb all the way up until you reach the next plasma-beam color-coded door and shoot the door hatch and walk in and your Battle with Prime to end the Phazon madness will begin. Or will it end if you do "defeat Prime" WARNING NEXT CHEAT SUBMISSION BY SHADOWANGEL95 IS A SPOILER FOR PEOPLE WHO EITHER HAVE 100% OF THE ITEMS ACQUIRED OR ARE TOO LAZY TO BEAT THE GAME TO SEE THE BEST ENDING FOR METROID PRIME.
