Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 237
Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 237

Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 245
  1. In Maridia, head toward Botwoon. There is a large room in which you normally would grapple or wall-jump up to the top left to progress toward the mini-boss. Instead, shoot the floor in the bottom right and fall through the left quicksand pit.
Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 246
Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 246
  1. There are 46 missile packs in total, and for the most part, all the truly well-hidden items are missile upgrades. This one, however, is in a conspicuous room directly left from the Crateria Map Station.

Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 255

Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 257
Super Metroid Walkthrough - Super Metroid 257
