In Metroid Dread, Samus has a number of suits at his disposal, each with their own unique abilities and attributes. Having the right suit for the job is sure to lead you to success, but some of them are cleverly tucked away in hard-to-reach spaces. While you may end up stumbling across the kit you need, some players may want to know exactly where everything is ahead of time.
And that’s where we come in. Here, we’ll show you all the suits in the game, with instructions on how to track them down. These are the four suit upgrades available in Metroid Dread.
Spoiler alert: Little spoilers for Metroid Dread monitor.
The starter suit, called the Power Suit, is unlocked by default. This outfit is similar to Metroid Fusion, with two transparent blue and white colors. The Power Suit gives Samus special abilities like speed and defense but is pretty basic compared to the others. You won’t be able to go into areas with extreme heat or freezing with this suit.
The first unlockable suit is the Varia Suit, which was in the previous series. This suit gives Samus a higher defense from enemy attacks, along with heat resistance. You will be able to enter high temperature rooms (although not lava rooms yet) with this suit, which is required to end the game. It also looks similar to Samus’ original red, white and orange suit.
You find this suit pretty early in the game in the Artaria location. However, you need to unlock the Morph Ball skill, which is given to you after you defeat EMMI in Cataris. Once you’ve defeated this enemy and unlocked the Morph Ball, you’ll be able to carry a teleporter from Cataris to Artaria, spawning you very close to the suit’s location. Follow the map above to get to this area and you’ll need to go through a series of rooms that are being destroyed by fire and explosions. You will then find a room with a Chozo Statue containing the Varia Suit upgrade.
The next one is the Gravity Suit, and this one is a satisfying upgrade to use, thanks to its unique properties. It improves your damage resistance and allows you to go through frozen rooms, along with lava rooms. In addition, this suit allows Samus to move freely underwater, which is an important step forward since she usually moves very slowly. It also increases Samus’ melee damage. Here’s another must-have that gets you into some of the more difficult-to-reach areas.
To find it, head to Burenia in the direction of the area on the map above. You’ll need to unlock the Morph Ball, Pulse Radar, and Space Jump first to access the Gravity Suit. Then go to the lower part of Burenia from the right side and you will be able to collect the suit from the Chozo Statue.
The final suit is the Metroid Suit, which is automatically given to you at the end of the game. After you defeat Raven Beak, the fortress falls and Samus realizes his true power. Here, she has access to the Metroid Suit, which has a more natural look than previous sets. Thanks to Samus’s Metroid DNA, the suit gives her extra strength and defense, along with an intense beam. This suit is only usable in the final part of the game and is tied to the story, more than the gameplay. After the end of the game you won’t have access to the Metroid Suit anymore, sadly Quiet Robe sacrifices herself to stabilize Samus, so removing her from the suit so she can escape out safely.
