Artaria may be the very first region in Metroid Dread, but that doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous. Samus Aran begins her adventure with a measly 99 energy, so you’re definitely going to want to increase it.
Energy Tanks will do the trick, as each one gives you another 99 energy. You can also find Energy Parts – every four of these makes one whole Energy Tank. If you want to find them all in Artaria, we’ve got you covered.
Energy Tank | Requirements: Charge Beam
Step one, you’ll need the Charge Beam – here’s how to get it. Once you’re armed with that, return to the very beginning chambers of the game. Head through the caverns, all the way to the right, to find a Charge Beam door. Go through it, jump atop the next platform, then slide through the narrow opening to find the tank inside the small alcove.
Energy Part #1 | Requirements: Morph Ball
Energy Part #2 | Requirements: Morph Ball, Bombs, Flash Shift, Grapple Beam, Speed Booster, Varia Suit
There’s a Speed Booster puzzle in the northwest corner of the map. Once you have the Varia Suit, you can safely move through the heat there. Use Morph Ball Bombs to reach the puzzle area, which is marked by a pressure plate that you can only pass with the Flash Shift. Start on the left side of that plate, up against the ledge. Turn right and immediately activate your Speed Booster – don’t worry about closing the pressure plate door; it’ll be open by the time you need to move back. If you time it right, you’ll be able to store a Shinespark just as you hit the right-side wall. Now Flash Shift back across the pressure plate and launch up into the Speed Booster Blocks to grab the Energy Tank they were guarding.
Energy Part #3 | Requirements: None
While there are technically no requirements to grab this Energy Part, you do have to wait until you return to Artaria from the Burenia elevator. Proceed through the now-frozen zone until you drop down a long shaft into a mini-boss chamber. Take out the Red Chozo Soldier and exit via the right-hand door. The Part is just sitting on a ledge in the next cave, waiting for you to pick it up.
