2.2. Part 1: "The Investigation" (5)
STORYLINE: Almost identical to Mission 3. Release the security lock to access
the Data Room. Make sure not to enter any ultra-heated areas...
As soon as the briefing stops, back up to the locked door, then break into a
speed boost through the Save and Recharge rooms. By the time you reach the
first main room, you will have gathered enough speed to crash through the wall.
Keep holding Right, and you'll end up at the bottom of the room. Now, shoot all
the blocks in front of you (they'll all break away) and break into another
speed boost into the room on the left. You'll break through another wall of
Speed Booster blocks. Then, back up to the base of the ledge where you broke
through the blocks, and break into another speed boost to the left. As you go
over the second 'hill' in the room (just after the boost kicks in) jump, and
you'll break through some more Speed Booster blocks. Now, roll into a ball,
jump into the corner and lay a bomb. Roll into a next room and step on the
switch to activate Level 2 locks.
Get out of this room using the newly-activated door. Kill the blue enemies with
your Missiles (it's all they're vulnerable to) and roll into a ball. Now, lay a
bomb just to the left of the rightmost 'hill' in this room and a secret passage
will open. Drop down and shoot up at the ceiling two spaces to the left of the
right wall. You'll reveal a ***MISSILE TANK*** (21/48, 115.) Now, get out of
the hole, wait for the blocks you broke to materialize, then back up to the
left door. Break into a speed boost to the right, jumping just before you reach
the right wall. You'll break through the Speed Booster blocks again. Back in
the main room, break through the blocks in front of you again and go directly
across to the right door. Jump up to the first ledge in the vertical shaft and
dispatch the green worm with four Missile. Then walk over to the right wall and
you'll drop down. Hit the lamp by the gate to open it, back up to the entrance
you came in from, then break into a speed boost into the room on the right.
You'll break through some Speed Booster blocks on the floor. Walk over to the
left and you'll drop down (man, Nintendo needs to be a bit more original with
their puzzles...) Exit through the bottom right door. In the vertical shaft,
drop all the way down to the bottom right door. Go inside, then jump onto the
platform that takes up most of the room. Bomb the top of the platform and
you'll find a ***MISSILE TANK*** (22/48, 120.) Go right back into the vertical
shaft. Use the rungs to climb all the way to the top left door of the room (kill the worms on the way if you feel the need.) In this room, morph into a
ball and bomb the upper block. Roll through the pipe and collect the
unavoidable ***MISSILE TANK*** (23/48, 125.) Bomb the block just past it, then
jump up and keep rolling through the pipe, bombing the blocks on the way.
Eventually you'll reach the top right door. Go through. From here, it's a
completely straight path to the Data Room, where you can download your ***SUPER
Try out your Super Missiles for a second. DAMN! Look at the POWER! Heh, after
you're done playing around with your new toys (which might be awhile), go back
out to the left. Soon enough, you'll witness a gigantic hole in the floor. Drop
down and go through the right door to save your game, recharge, and in the next
room, shoot the purple pillar three times (with your Missiles) to collect the
***MISSILE TANK*** (24/48, 130.) Go back to the room with the big hole and
inspect the top left door. Upon walking right beside it, an earthquake will
rock the room! What the-go through the top right door and see what happened!
Upon entering, a robot will pop out of the Data Room entrance...
BOSS BATTLE |
B.O. SECURITY ROBOT|
This battle is absurdly easy if you know what to do. As soon as the battle
begins, hang on to the very right rung, and after three bounces, the robot will
stop, allowing to pump a few Missiles into its center. However, you only have a
second or two before it shoots out a grenade. At this time, swing over to the
very left rung and let the grenade do its stuff, as the flames will never hit
you. After three more bounces, the robot will open up, allowing to shoot it.
Swing over to the other side, wait for the grenade to explode, three bounces,
shoot Missiles, and repeat. You should have no trouble here.
Once it's defeated, the robot will run away like a sissy, and leave you some
debris platforms to use. Use 'em to get up and out of here. In this next room,
clear it of all the enemies inside, then back up and break into a speed boost.
Make sure it activates just as you reach the left door, and as soon as you
enter the next room, press Down. You'll hold the boost. Now do a Shinespark
(stationary jump then immediately hold left) into the left wall and you'll
crash right through it. Now, roll into a ball and lay some bombs in the little
pit. You'll reveal an ***ENERGY TANK*** (6/20.) Now, continue back to the
Navigation room (no more tanks or puzzles to worry about.)
Adam will permit you to destroy the security robot if you should ever meet it
again. In the meantime, releasing the Level 2 locks allowed the X to infiltrate
both of the remaining sectors. It wasn't especially intelligent to release
those locks after all...anyway, we have to go on another Data Room hunt, this
time in Sector 6. Get going.
Woah, what's that? A secret conversation behind Samus' back? What could this
mean? We shall never know...anyway, just go to the right and down the Sector 6
Sector 6, NOC(turnal)
I don't need to tell you what to do here, do I?
