Metroid Dread: How to Unlock Storm Missile Boss.Samus Aran has wielded a variety of weapons and items throughout the Metroid series, but Dread adds some new ones to her arsenal. The Storm Missile is one of the most entertaining upgrades in the game, allowing you to fire a barrage of explosive shots at a target. It, along with the Super Missile and Ice Missile, will improve your chances of survival as you fight your way across Planet ZDR. But first, you must earn it.
To do so, you’ll need to defeat Escue, one of Dread’s most difficult bosses – here’s a boss guide to help you succeed. It’s a difficult fight, but the Storm Missile reward is well worth it.
Storm Missiles are excellent in combat, but they can also be used for exploration. To use them, press and hold the Missile button to charge them. When the beam turns yellow, you can aim at up to five targets and launch the same number of mini-missiles at the marked enemies – a particularly effective tactic against the Robot Chozo Soldiers that hound you in various rooms.
The targeting ability of the Storm Missiles can also open up new rooms. You may have noticed doors with five green lights while exploring. To access these, activate the Storm Missiles and aim at the five green targets scattered around the room.
