2.5. Cleanup (1)
So, you decided to get all the remaining items, eh? Good choice. Not only are
you guaranteed a good ending by getting 100%, but Samus will be an absolute
powerhouse with them. Let's get moving!
Sector 1, SR(-388)X
After killing Ridley-X, follow the same path through Sector 1 that I outlined in the main walkthrough. However, once breaking through the yellow bridge in the vertical shaft, go through the top RIGHT door instead. Go through the bottom right door in the large room, then go through the top left door of the vertical shaft. Shoot the lamp to open the gate and continue to the left. Go through the far left door of this corridor. Drop through the Crumble Blocks in the next room and lay a Power Bomb to open a secret passage. Continue to the left. Once you reach the Save Room, save, then back up to the left wall and break into a speed boost to the right. Shoot your gun frantically in the one screen room so you don't hit the hopping enemies. The moment you enter the hidden room to the right, duck to hold the boost, then drop down the pit, but shoot your gun down to kill the enemy so you don't lose your boost. Once you hit the bottom, quickly run to the right wall (make sure you're right against it) and do a Shinespark upwards and you'll break through some blocks at the top. Shoot the wall to the left to reveal a ***POWER BOMB TANK*** (19/32, 48.) Backtrack to the Save Room, and once again, break into a speed boost to the right. The instant the boost activates, duck to hold the boost, then Screw Attack (make sure you're holding Left or Right while jumping, otherwise you'll just do a Shinespark) onto the rungs. Immediately Screw Attack to the ledge in front of the top left door. Shoot the hatch to make it open, then do a Shinespark through the open door. In the next room, you'll hit a ledge and break back into a speed boost. Boost to the left, and right before you reach the slight drop (on the left side of the room), duck to hold the boost again, then drop into the ledge. Do a Shinespark upwards and you'll crash through the ceiling. Grab the ***ENERGY TANK*** (17/20) here. Drop back down and go through the top right door. Go up through the top right door in this room. Go to the right until you reach the vertical shaft. Save at the top right if you want, then go through the top left. Go all the way to the top left until you reach the first main room, the one that leads to the Save/Recharge/Navigation room corridor, and go through the bottom left door. Drop to the bottom of the shaft, then shoot through the blocks at the bottom. Drop down (don't worry, the lava doesn't hurt you anymore) and go through the bottom right. In this lava-filled room, roll through the bottom right wall to find a ***MISSILE TANK*** (43/48, 225), then Screw Attack up to the top right and grab the other ***MISSILE TANK*** (44/48, 230.) Go back out the bottom left and back up the vertical shaft. In the first main room, go through the top right door. Screw Attack through the middle of the ceiling and grab the ***POWER BOMB TANK*** (20/32, 50) to the left. Now jump against the right wall and you'll grab onto a hidden ledge at the top. Roll through and go through the door to the right. Into Sector 2...
Sector 2, TRO(pical)
Screw Attack through the right wall once you go through the airlock and reach the first actual room of this place. Go through the far right door of this corridor. Now you're in the first main room of the sector. Go through the top right door and proceed to the Security Room. Once you reach it, Screw Attack through the wall on the top left. A secret passage! Go through the door on the left. In this room, Screw Attack over to the top left, but DON'T LAND ON THE PLATFORMS. Every block of every platform in the room is a Crumble Block. Ouch. Once you DO reach the top left, acquire yet another ***ENERGY TANK*** (18/20.) Screw Attack back over to the right and drop down the first pit you see. Before you hit the platforms, Screw Attack some more, then go to the middle left to find a ***POWER BOMB TANK*** (21/32, 52.) Now, press Start and look at your map. See the skull in the bottom right corner, where you fought Pogo-X? I want you to go there. It's a very long and boring path, and so simple that I don't want to waste words describing how to get there. Note that you cannot take the original path, however: eventually you'll reach a vertical shaft where you'll have to lay a Power Bomb and then drop down, allowing you to continue on the regular path. Once you finally reach the room where you fought Pogo-X, Screw Attack through the blocks in the upper right corner. Go through the door to the right. Ready for a challenge? This is probably one of the hardest tanks in the game to get. Drop to the bottom, back up to the wall on the left and break into a speed boost to the right. Duck to hold the boost once it activates, then go into ball form, jump up to the next ledge, and do a Shinespark into the slope beside you. Dash across the floor of Crumble Blocks, then go into ball form before you hit the next wall, jump up to the next ledge, Shinespark into the slope, and repeat until you reach the top, in which you'll have to hold the boost instantly after going across the Crumble Block floor, jump up onto the one-block ledge, and Shinespark one last time into the ledge, at which point you'll break through a wall of Speed Booster blocks at the top left. Grab the ***POWER BOMB TANK*** (22/32, 54) and drop through the Crumble Block at the top left. Go to the bottom right and break into another speed boost, but to the left this time. As soon as the boost activates, go into ball form, jump, and at the apex of your jump, morph out and immediately do a Shinespark to the right. You'll break through two Speed Booster blocks. Now shoot the two blocks to the right to reveal a ***MISSILE TANK*** (45/48, 235.) The next thing I tell you may make you scream, but I want you to go all the way back to the vertical shaft before the Security Room. I'm serious. Once you get there, Screw Attack through the bottom right portion of the wall. Another secret passage! Go through the door to the right and through the airlock to Sector 4...
