Since the original Metroid game released in 1986, the franchise has been a staple of gaming culture. The popular action-adventure series follows the intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran as she traverses various planets, using her arsenal of weapons and abilities like the morph ball to battle enemies and traverse environments. In 2020, Nintendo released their most recent installment in the series, “Metroid Dread,” an installment that has been met with much anticipation from fans of both long time and new Nintendo titles.
One of the exciting mechanics introduced in Metroid Dread is Samus’ teleportation device. The teleportation device allows her to move quickly between different locations by linking them together through teleporters. This mechanic can be used to explore all the hidden nooks and crannies of each planet and discover collectibles or pathways to other areas, making it beneficial for players looking for a more complete play experience.
In order to use Samus’s teleportation device, players need to find teleporter locations scattered throughout each planet. These are divided into three types: nodes, bases, and entrances. Nodes are fixed points that always link together two different points on a planet; bases are stronger teleporters located within structures that link up with any activated teleport gate; finally, entrances act as portals from other locations on a planet into an area containing special items or boss fights.
