Metroid Dread, Kraid: discovered a secret method to defeat him, here is the video

Metroid Dread, Kraid

Metroid Dread boasts a number of splendid boss fights, and apparently there are alternative ways to complete them. This is the case with Kraid, who can be defeated following a secret method discovered by some players.

As we wrote in the Metroid Dread review, the new episode of the Nintendo series hides some secrets in terms of design, and it exists the possibility that this "trick" is also one of the things the developers imagined.

In this case, the boss fight with Kraid was formally designed to take place before Samus gets hold of the bombs that can be released in mode morphosphere. But what happens if you get to the clash with the available bombs?

As illustrated in the GameXplain video, the Metroid Dread protagonist can get the bombs in advance using an improvised passage and use them to defeat Kraid within a few minutes seconds.

Seeing the result, it actually seems that the devastating explosive attack on the boss was somehow intended and intended. Will this be the truth? And what other secrets does Metroid Dread hide? We will certainly find out in the next few weeks.

Metroid Dread Includes a Secret Boss Death Just for Sequence Breakers

Players have discovered a sequence-breaking moment in Metroid Dread that allows you to instantly defeat one of its early bosses if you find one of Samus' upgrades earlier than intended.

SPOILERS AHEAD for Metroid Dread

In Metroid Dread, Samus once again runs into the space pirate monstrosity known as Kraid. It's one of the earlier boss fights and features two phases that will test your skill in the game up to that point. However, if you are able to go a bit out of your way to obtain the Grapple Beam and then the Morph Ball Bombs, you can dispatch this giant lizard in the blink of an eye.

As shown by @Glaedrax on Twitter, Samus can destroy a part of the wall to the left with her Morph Ball Bombs and enter that part of the wall she destroyed to be shot right into Kraid's stomach. Once inside, Samus absolutely wrecks Kraid's insides and ends the fight without having to go through any of its phases.


Due to the open-ended nature of Metroid games, sequence breaking has long been a part of its storied history. However, this may be the first time players have been rewarded for thinking outside the box and getting upgrades earlier than many other players would.

In our Metroid Dread review, we said that it ' brings back the legendary exploration and progression and merges it with excellent modern combat and some of the best boss fights ever.'
