Metroid Dread’s Elun is a small area, but it prepares us for a trip back to Ghavoran with a new upgrade. While here and back in Ghavoran, we’ll defeat a couple Chozo Soldiers and pick up the Plasma Beam, Spin Boost, and Ice Missile suit upgrades.

In our Metroid Dread Elun walkthrough, we’ll help you find and collect every upgrade and give you tips and tricks for the Chozo Soldier boss fights.

  1. Ammo Recharge Station (again).

  3. Chozo Soldier boss fight.

Phase 1

The first phase of this fight is relatively simple. All you’re doing is jumping and Flash Shifting back and forth while shooting constantly.

When the Chozo Soldier hops up to the wall, wait for it to jump, and then Flash Shift out of the way.

Phase 2

Phase 2 gets a little more complicated.

  • When the Chozo Soldier jumps to the wall, it’ll leap to the center of the room. Move to the edge and wait. When it lands, it throws out two waves you’ll need to jump over.
  • Its attacks have much greater reach. As soon as you see it backflip, jump and Flash Shift.

Grab Sequence

When you deal enough damage, you’ll get an attempt at a Grab Sequence. You have to Melee Counter two times to pull it off.
