For some people, completing games means reaching the end of the story, but for others, it means discovering and experiencing everything a game has to offer. As such, some people will not be satisfied by just completing Metroid Dread and seeing Samus escape Planet ZDR, but they will have to find and unlock every secret in the game to reach a true 100% completion to be truly happy.
If you are among this type of players, you have come to the right place, as we will explain in this guide how to truly complete Metroid Dread fully.
How To Get 100% Completion in Metroid Dread
Achieving true 100% completion in Metroid Dread will require you not only to fully explore each of the areas of Planet ZDR, but also to complete the game multiple times due to the strict requirements for unlocking some specific Ending Rewards.
To achieve 100% completion in Metroid Dread you will have to unlock every upgrade, which is done by simply playing through the campaign, and boost your Energy, Missile, and Power Bomb reserve to the maximum. To do so, you will need to reach 1299 Energy, 275 Missiles and 15 Power Bombs by collecting all Energy Tanks and Energy Parts, Missile Tanks and Missile+ Tanks and Power Bomb Expansions.
Once you do upgrade Samus’ abilities to the maximum, all you have left is unlock all Chozo Gallery images and all Ending Rewards. This will be the most time-consuming part on your road to 100%, as to unlock some Ending Rewards, you will have to complete the game in under 4 hours at Normal and Hard difficulty modes. It’s not an easy feat at all, but once you memorize where to go and how to fight bosses, you will be able to accomplish this feat with ease and earn the right to be called a true Metroid Dread master.
