Metroid Dread’s Hanubia brings us almost to the end of the game (with a bit of travel first). We’ll take on Experiment No. Z-57, Twin Robot Chozo Soldier (again), Golzuna, Chozo Soldier (again), and an Elite Chozo Soldier and pick up the Screw Attack and Cross Bombs suit upgrades.

In our Metroid Dread Hanubia walkthrough, we’ll help you find and collect every upgrade and give you tips and tricks for the Experiment No. Z-57, Twin Robot Chozo Soldier (again), Golzuna, Chozo Soldier (again), and Elite Chozo Soldier boss fights.

Experiment No. Z-57 boss fight (Cataris)

In Cataris, we’re starting the final push toward the end of the game.

  3. Experiment No. Z-57 boss fight.

The reanimated corpse of Corpius has become Experiment No. Z-57. This is an exacting fight, so we’re going to make this section video heavy to show you examples.

Phase 1

Experiment No. Z-57 has two main attacks in this phase.

Attack 1: It’ll spit two streams of pink goo. You’re watching for clear spots in the pink goo while you target the head with Storm Missiles. Your first priority, though, is to avoid damage. As soon as you spot a clear space, head for it.

Attack 2: It will swipe twice, once from each direction. It’s possible to just jump over the swings, but it’s easier to just Space Jump through the whole sequence.

The main thing you’re watching for, though, is for Z-57 to climb down a little and point its head at the ceiling. When this happens, get close to Z-57’s head and wait for a Melee Counter. Keep firing missiles through the whole process.

Phase 2

For phase 2, you’ve got a couple new things to watch out for.

Attack 1: It’ll point to the right and activate fans, pushing you left. You’ll need to run, jump, Space Jump, and dodge through the pink chevron beams. The sequence is always the same, so you’ll get better with practice.

Attack 2: It adds a third swipe to the swipe attacks. The problem is, it also damages on the third windup, so you have to get low and then jump again.

Keep firing Storm Missiles and keep dodging the pink goo while you wait for another Melee Counter opportunity.


Teleportal (Blue)

We’re heading back to Burenia next, but we’ve got a suit upgrade to grab back in Artaria along the way.

  1. Teleportal (Green).
  2. Save Station.
  3. Golzuna boss fight.

The Golzuna boss fight is really a series of smaller fights, most of which you’ve seen before. You’re going to do a lot of sliding between legs.

For Golzuna’s first two forms, don’t bother with missiles. Save those for the third form.

The third version of Golzuna is when things get tricky. When it’s facing you, head for the corners and wait for it to rear up. Fire up your Storm Missiles while you wait, and then slide under its feet when it’s rearing. Quickly turn around and fire the missiles at its exposed backside.

Periodically, Golzuna will fire out a pink or blue energy orb. These create barriers that deal shocking (pun intended) amounts of damage.

Do your best to avoid them or, better yet, Space Jump over top of Golzuna and get in front of them.

If you run out of missiles, Charged Beam or regular Plasma Beams work just fine.
