Metroid Dread Artaria 100% completion guide

Complete Artaria 100 percent!

As your journey through the planet ZDR as bounty hunter Samus Aran, after an initial cutscene fight, you wake up powerless and item less, save from a regular energy shot from your arm cannon.

But alas, you'll quickly gain your powers and with them also find some secrets. Here's 100 percent of all the items you can find in the first area Artaria.

All Power Bomb Tanks in Artaria

  • Requirements
    • Morph Ball, Grapple Beam, Spider Magnet

This Power Bomb tank is in the massive room inside the EMMI zone. You cannot get it unless you have the Grapple Beam and Spider Magnet. Enter it from the middle right of the room, and Spider Magnet onto the blue wall above you, then Grapple Beam onto the blue wall at the top.

You can get the Grapple Beam early, but it's honestly best coming back for this one when you have the Space Jump.

All Energy Tanks/Parts in Artaria

Energy Tank #1

This is the first 100 Energy Tank you can acquire in the game. Once you've acquired the Charge Beam, head back east. Charge Beam open the door you couldn't open before, jump up onto two platforms. On the second one, slide to the right and claim your E-Tank.

Energy Part #2

  • Requirements
    • None

You can get this Energy Part before you even acquire the Charge Beam, but it involves going through a cold area that will zap your life quickly. Instead of exploding the mass and going south instead, go through the cold door above. Then follow the route to the west, and up above a platform is the Energy Part.

We recommend getting the 100 Energy Tank first, then coming back, but you can get this at any point you choose too.

Energy Part #3

  • Requirements
    • Morph Ball

To get this Energy Part, all you need is the Morph Ball. Head to the Save Station to the northwest. Left of the room with the water. Jump up, grab the ledge, and roll over to the Energy Part.

Energy Part #4

  • Requirements
    • Varia Suit, Morph Ball, Bombs, Flash Shift, Grapple Beam, Speed Booster, Space Jump

To get this Energy Part, you have to succeed in a Speed Booster puzzle to the northwest of the map. You do need a few requirements, however. Using the Space Jump, head north from the Purple Teleporter and make your way through the rooms until you get to the area you found the Varia Suit.

Head through the Morph Ball gap, and go Flash Shift through the pressure plate. Go up against the ledge, begin to run to the right while activating Speed Booster. Shinespark before the gap, then Flash Shift back over the pressure plate and Shinespark upwards to break the Speed Booster Blocks.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
