Omega Pirate is one of the bosses that Samus must defeat in Metroid Prime Remastered. A Space Pirate that has been super-powered by being infused with Phazon, gaining size, ferocity, and the ability to cloak itself and regenerate its armor.
Read ahead as we go through the Omega Pirate boss fight and share tips on how to win the fight easily.
How to reach Omega Pirate
Starting from the elevator that takes you down to the Phazon Mines level 3, simply make your way through the Fungal Halls by switching to your X-ray Visor to reveal invisible platforms. You will eventually reach another Metroid Quarantine along the way. Try to save up on your missiles as they will be needed more in the coming fight.
Just past the quarantine area is another save station that you can stop by before continuing to next corridor. The path the the Elite Quarters will be blocked. All you need to do is to shoot at the frigidite near the ceiling with your plasma weapon and it will retract the vents, giving you access to the boss’ arena.
How to defeat Omega Pirate
Before engaging, try to scan the boss as soon as its intro cutscene is done as doing so later on in the fight would be hard to pull off.
Once the fight starts, you need to put on your X-ray Visor to see and be able to lock on to its four breakable parts; two on the shoulders and two on the legs. These parts are only susceptible to missiles, so it’s time to put those missiles to good use and aim your Super Missiles at them.
Once all breakable parts are broken, Omega Pirate will fall down and call upon other pirates while it retreats. These ads are color-coded, so simply attack them using the weapon that matches their color. Still, save up on your missiles as these ads can be defeated easily with your standard fire.
Don’t focus too much on the ads though, as Omega Pirate will be charging in the background soon. Switch back to your X-ray Visor to find where the boss is and you should see it siphoning Phazon energy to not only power it back up, but also regrow its broken parts. Immediately charge up your plasma weapon and shoot the boss with a Super Missile straight to its chest to stop it from healing any further.
Once it manages to get all four of its breakable parts back up, you’ll enter into another cycle again. Rinse and repeat breaking off its parts and then shooting it while charging until all of its health is gone. If you are fast enough, you can even defeat Omega Pirate with just one cycle if you manage to hit it with Super Missiles three times before it can fully regenerate.
As for its attacks, you will need to pay attention to its shockwave attack and its missile volley. For the shockwave attack, time your double jump to clear the growing shockwave. The missiles are hard to see being primed while in X-ray mode, so if you see the boss sort of just standing on the spot, prepare to dodge its missiles as they deal a lot of damage.
After around three cycles, Omega Pirate’s health should be all gone and it will fall down on Samus. But as the boss’ body disintegrates into Phazon, Samus will rise up and gain the Phazon Suit.
