At the start of her journey on planet ZDR in Metroid Dread, Samus Aran loses all of her abilities, an event that forces her to explore the deepest reaches of the planet to recover them. While doing so, she will also learn some new Aeion abilities that will make her life easier fighting all sorts of enemies, including E.M.M.I., and discovering secrets.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Aeion abilities and how to unlock them.

All Aeion Abilities in Metroid Dread

Aeion abilities are three special abilities that Samus can unleash once the Aeion gauge, located on the top left side of the screen, is full. Once depleted, you will need to wait a few seconds for it to replenish normally. All three abilities are required to complete the campaign, so you cannot miss them.
