Ship Missile

[edit] Overview

The Ship Missile is an upgrade for Samus Aran's Gunship in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. It allows her ship to make bombing runs at ground targets that are far too resilient for Samus' weaponry, or otherwise out of her reach to deal with. It can destroy objects that are constructed from Maldium. This upgrade is used via the Command Visor.

Note, bombing runs can only be performed in open areas. Furthermore, creatures in Hypermode or Space Pirates with shields out cannot be killed by the bomb blast.

[edit] Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, the upgrade initially only allows Samus to shoot three missiles with the Ship Missile upgrade. Having said this, throughout the game the player can pick up Ship Missile Expansions in order to increase the total, maxing out at eleven. The most important use is on Bryyo when destroying the shield generators, but is usable on other options such as a group of enemies or to destroy a Phazon mining device on the Pirate Homeworld. You'll find yourself becoming a lot more dependent on this upgrade as you increase the difficulty setting on future play throughs, so make sure to remember to use them.

[edit] How to Obtain

This upgrade can be found in Federation Landing Site at Bryyo Cliffside on Bryyo.
