Item List: 100% Missile, Energy Tank, Power Bomb Upgrade Locations

The following is a list of all of the upgrade locations in Metroid Fusion for missiles, energy tanks, and power bombs.

Collecting all of these will give you one of the two endings that are shown for 100% completion, depending on how long you took to complete the game.

In total, there are

  • 48 Missile Upgrades
  • 20 Energy Tank Upgrades
  • 32 Power Bomb Upgrades

Missile Tank #1

Available: After getting missile ability

The first upgrade becomes available after you visit the data room to regain your missile ability. You will enter some hidden passages after shooting a panel in the large room to the right of the data room on the main deck. Eventually you will descend a vertical shaft, and you will see this first missile tank in plain sight on the right.

Missile Tank #2

Available: After getting missile ability

The next missile upgrade is close to the last one but is not out in the open. Go to the left from the previous missile upgrade and drop down. There is an exit to the left. Go through. There are three steps to the left. Shoot the top block of the top step to reveal a hidden missile upgrade.

Energy Tank #1

Available: After getting missile ability

On the way to the first boss fight, you encounter a door eyeball (Gadora) After you kill it with three missiles and go through the door beyond, you will enter a room with ledges that you have to jump from to climb up the room. Eventually, you will find the first energy tank sitting out in the open.

Energy Tank #2

Available: After getting missile ability

Just after the energy tank upgrade mentioned above, you can get a missile upgrade, but it's hidden. To find it, walk slightly to the right of where you got the energy tank. There is a part of the ceiling hanging down above you. Walk just past this hanging ceiling, then shoot two missiles straight up so that you hit the ceiling immediately to the right of the part that hangs down. Shooting with two missiles will open a secret passage in the ceiling. Jump up through the hole that you created, then go to the right. The small tunnel leads to an area with an energy tank.

Missile Tank #3

Available: After getting morph ball ability

After Adam tells you that the breeding environments have been infected, you head to SRX. On the way up the darkened shaft, there is a tunnel that you can roll through using your new morph ball ability. In the room that you reach, you find another missile upgrade.

Energy Tank #3

Available: As soon as you go to SRX

After killing the parasites that infested the first atmospheric stabilizer that you encounter in SRX, you reach a room with a bunch of hornoads hopping around. There is a metal pipe in the ground on the right side of the room. Crouch down and shoot the wall blocking this pipe to open the way. Then use your morph ball ability to roll through the tube and receive an energy tank upgrade.

Missile Tank #4

Available: As soon as you go to SRX

In SRX, you eventually reach a room with purple alien bug guys (Zebesian Space Pirates) climbing the walls. Before descending this shaft, you can go across to the door, which leads to a room full of lava. Climb across the rungs in the ceiling of the lava room to reach a missile upgrade.

Missile Tank #5

Available: As soon as you go to SRX

After you clear the atmospheric stabilizer in the bottom-right of the SRX map, a door unlocks in the upper-left corner of the room. Go through that door to find a missile upgrade.

Missile Tank #6

Available: As soon as you go to SRX

After you receive the Charge Beam ability, go through the exit in the upper-right corner of the room. In the next room, shoot the middle of the ceiling and jump up. There is a hidden passage in the upper-left corner of the room. To open it, shoot a missile at the wall in the upper-left corner, then shoot regular bullets to open the rest of the way. Go into the passage using morph ball. There is a missile upgrade underwater, past a bunch of crab-like Zeelas.

Missile Tank #7

Available: As soon as you go to SRX

In SRX, go to the rightmost save room on the map. Shoot at the cracked block in the wall to the right. Jump against the right wall and morph in mid-air and press right to roll through the tunnel. You will have to use the wall kick technique in here. Jump up against a wall, then when you touch the wall, press the jump button again and press the control pad in the direction away from the wall. If you timed it correctly, you will kick off of the wall and jump higher. Samus's feet need to be touching the wall to execute the jump. Use this technique to reach the top of the shaft and get the missile upgrade. Or come back later to get it more easily with the space jump ability.

Missile Tank #8

Available: After getting bomb ability

After receiving the bomb data in TRO, exit the room and go to the right. In the upper-right corner of the room, there is a small ledge with a piece of wall that is separate from the rest. Use your new bomb ability to drop a bomb (press the shoot button while in morph ball). The bombs will break away the piece of wall and you can roll through to get a missile upgrade.

Missile Tank #9

Available: After getting bomb ability

In TRO, the SA-X destroys an exit, and you have to use bombs to drop down to a corridor below. After bombing the floor and going down to the level below, exit to the left. You will be in a shaft. Jump up to the top left of the area and do a wall kick against the right wall, and shoot the wall to the left to break open a hole. Wall kick again to grab onto the ledge that you opened, then roll through with morph ball. Bomb the floor to the left of the block that sticks up. This will activate a rising platform. Use it to reach the missile upgrade up above.

Missile Tank #10

Available: After getting bomb ability

In TRO, there is a room with a blue caterpillar worm thing (called a Zeros) crawling around near some red ones. To the right of these creatures, bomb the bottom-right corner of their area to open a tunnel. Roll through and drop down to find a red Zeros and a missile upgrade.

Energy Tank #4

Available: After getting bomb ability

After getting the previous upgrade, you will reach a second vertical shaft. On the map, this shaft is one square to the right of being below the recharge room. Go up to the third door from the bottom of the shaft and go right until you reach a room with an energy tank.

Missile Tank #11

Available: After getting Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities

You need to have the Hi-Jump ability to do this. In TRO, after you see the SA-X walk through the corridor below you and go through the door, drop down and walk through that corridor to exit. Jump up onto the platform where a larva is squirming in its shell, then jump up again where you will see the damaged door on the right. Go into the door across from it. In this watery room, jump up to grab the rungs in the ceiling, then climb to the left to get a missile upgrade.

Missile Tank #12

Available: After getting Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities

You need to have the Hi-Jump ability to do this. In the same watery room mentioned above, go down into the water, then go left. Drop a bomb on the floor near the tall wall on the left. An elevator will rise up. Jump onto it, then jump left to get over the wall. Go through the hatch. Now drop bombs in the middle of the floor on the right side to make another elevator appear. Stand on it, then use the jumpball ability while in morph ball mode to jump and drop a bomb at the small square portion of the wall on the left. The bomb will break open the block. Jump up from the elevator to go through the small hole and reach the missile tank on the other side. When you exit this room, you can put a bomb on the small block to the right of the hatch to create an elevator.

Missile Tank #13

Available: After getting Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities

In the second vertical shaft, which is filled with larvae in cocoons (Kihunters) after you get Hi-Jump and Jumpball, go up to the top of this shaft and use bombs to reach the hatch at the top right. Continue on until you reach a room with a spike-shooting Dessgeega and another cocoon on the wall. Grab onto the ledge up above, then jump over to the ledge on the right. Climb up into the small gap on the right, then use a bomb on the wall to the right. This opens a secret passage to a missile upgrade.

Missile Tank #14

Available: After getting Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities

After regaining the Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities, you will return to the big room at the entrance of TRO by way of a small tunnel. Bomb the block at the end of the tunnel, then go straight up and go through the blue hatch. In this room, kill the Owtches that are slithering along the walls, then go into morph ball mode and jump up against the right wall. At the peak of your jump, place a bomb. If you put it in the correct spot, a small block will be broken. Go into the tunnel there and use bombs to reach the area to the right, where you find a missile upgrade.

Missile Tank #15

Available: After getting Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities

After regaining the Hi-Jump and Jumpball abilities, you will go back toward the navigation room, recharge room, and save room. Before you go up there, go into the room directly below the save, recharge, and navigation rooms. If possible, don't shoot the Reos that are flying around in here, because otherwise the X that float away from them will make the green thing near the entrance turn into a tall purple and green thing (Kago), making the next step harder. You now have to jump over the purple and green thing(s) blocking your way to the left. It can be difficult to do this without getting hurt, but it is possible. If you succeed, you are rewarded with a missile upgrade on the left side of the room.

Missile Tank #16
