We’ve been to Metroid Dread’s Ferenia briefly before. This time, we’ll take on Escue, Twin Robot Chozo Soldier, and another Chozo Solider and pick up the Storm Missiles, Space Jump, and Gravity Suit suit upgrades.

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

Escue boss fight

  1. Breakable blocks and Energy Tank.

  3. Escue boss fight.

Phase 1

Escue has three attacks that it’ll use constantly. Constantly.

  • A black projectile. When it hits the floor, it’ll pause and then send out a pulse you have to jump over. It doesn’t pulse when it hits the walls, though.
  • A purple missile storm. Double jump (Spin Boost) and Flash Shift over and around them.
  • Charge attack. This can’t be Melee Countered, so just get out of the way.

The trick to this fight is that you cannot damage Escue when its surrounded by purple energy. When that happens, your only job is to dodge the projectiles and wait.

When Escue isn’t surrounded by purple lightning, unload missiles into it. It takes about 20 hits by our count.

Phase 2

The second phase of the Escue fight is much simpler. Fire a missile into the X spore-thing that Escue becomes. It’ll knock back, and then become invulnerable for several seconds. Jump and Flash Shift over it, and wait for it to stop flashing.

Fire and dodge again until you defeat Escue and pick up the Storm Missiles.


Twin Robot Chozo Soldiers boss fight

  1. Head left and down to return to the nearest Save Station.
  2. Cross up and left through the EMMI Zone.
  3. Twin Robot Chozo Soldiers boss fight.

Don’t let the twin part throw you — you’ve fought these enemies before, and you have a new weapon — the Storm Missiles — that will turn the tide in your favor.

Focus on the silver one first — it seems to take fewer hits to put down. As soon as you walk in, start holding down the R button to charge your Storm Missiles. Your job is to avoid taking any damage — be ready to jump and Flash Shift — while getting the targeting beam to touch the silver Robot Chozo Soldier. Once you have a few targets on it, fire the missiles.

Once the silver one is down, turn your attention to the gold one. The same process works for it. Just keep moving around and targeting it.
