Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

Are there any secret ways to beat the Spider Guardian?

Games Guru: Scan the Spider Guardian before entering the tunnel maze. Once you’re in, it’s too late for a scan.

You have to fight this battle from the morph ball using bombs to send the Spider Guardian into blue energy. After three hits, the Spider Guardian will turn red, making him faster and more dangerous, or green, opening bomb slots. When he turns green, drop bombs into the slots to send the Spider Guardian into the blue energy fields.

  3. How do you get across the second Gyro ring on the way to the second Dark Samus fight? I know you have to boost but I keep falling short. What do I need to do to hit that window?

    this is the order of metroid: Metroid Zero Mission/Original Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid II: Return of Samus, Super Metroid, Metroid Other M, and lastly Metroid Fusion.

    • thats not the order it in the order that they came out except maybe metroid prime hunters and metroid other m cuz im not sure about those two

    • no! its origanal metroid,metroid 2 samus returns,super metroid,metroid other m,metroid zero mission,metroid fuision,metroid prime hunters,metroid prime,metroid prime 2 echos,metroid prime 3 coruption, im talking to bugs bunny.

      • @night Ing: As far as I know, there is no specific order for the games, story-wise. All that is really known is Zero Mission/Original was the first, Super Metroid comes after Metroid II, and Metroid Fusion is the last game in the story. And obviously, the Prime games are in order (except I don’t know where Hunters fits in).

      • no there were no metroids after 2(not prime) but some metroids were saved in metroid fusion and other m

    • Your right about the chronological order of the games Bugs. That’s how Wikitroid (the Metroid wiki) says. Plus I’ve seen an interview with Retro Games (the ppl who made the Prime trilogy). I believe they said that the Prime games take place between Metroid 1/Zero Mission and Metroid 2.

      i know a secret cheat on how to defeat dark samus

    • Starfox, you cant always just go back the way you come in. He sounds like hes just starting. Blue Spinner, if you havent already, you have to get the Dark & Light Beams to activate inactive portals, otherwise you probably cant leave Dark Aether until you get the Light Beam and activate a portal.

      • IcyFlame // July 4, 2010 at 6:25 pm //

        actually u can cuz the portal from which u came to activate u just need to scan but u really shouldnt leave until u find the light and dark beams
