Metroid Dread Walkthrough: Dairon Missile Expansions

Here you’ll find the location for every Missile Expansion in Dairon, as well as detailed explanations on how to get them and what powerups you’ll need.

Additionally, you can find Missile Expansions by area:

 


Missile Expansion #12

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Bombs

 

In the  room you acquire the bombs in, lay a couple bombs on the floor and drop below. Keep bombing until you get to the wall covering the missile expansion. Jump up and lay a bomb in the air, breaking the wall and allowing you to roll over and grab MISSILE EXPANSION #12.

 


Missile Expansion #13

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Bombs

 

In the room beside the far left Save Station and in between two Morph Ball Launch tunnels, you should be next to some spider tracks. If you go to the wall directly opposite the spider tracks and jump and lay a bomb, you should see a small tunnel open up. Roll through and grab MISSILE EXPANSION #13.

 


Missile Expansion #14

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Bombs

 

From the room beside the far left Save Station, use the Morph Ball Launcher in the bottom right corner. When you land, immediately aim up and shoot the ceiling. You should see MISSILE EXPANSION #14 just sitting there, so go grab it!

 


Missile Expansion #17

Location: Dairon E.M.M.I. Zone

Requirements: Speed Booster

 

 Get to the top of this room and you’ll see a walkway just large enough for you to activate your Speed Booster. Go crashing through the wall and grab MISSILE EXPANSION #17.

 


Missile Expansion #18

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Speed Booster

 

Make your way to the room directly after the Cataris elevator. You’ll see some Speed Boost blocks, so get to running and Shinespark straight up in the middle of the room. You’ll break the block AND conveniently land right beside MISSILE EXPANSION #18.

 


Missile Expansion #27

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Grapple Beam

 

Grapple over using the hooks in the ceiling (this can be deceivingly hard, so make sure to hold on to your 360° aiming at all times) and collect MISSILE EXPANSION #27

 


Missile Expansion #59

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Missiles, Cross Bombs, Morph Ball

 

Position yourself so you’re facing the blocks in front of the Expansion. Get into Morph Ball form and jump up, laying a Cross Bomb. Fire off four missiles to destroy the missile blocks and jump over into the tunnel. Lay another Cross Bomb and you’ll roll over the pitfall blocks into MISSILE EXPANSION #59.

 


Missile Expansion #60

Location: Dairon

Requirements: None

 

Head into the low temperature room to the left of the Map Station. Space Jump over to the left until you grab the spider tracks on the middle of the wall. Use your Pulse Scan and you’ll see a tumor hidden in the wall to your left. Blast it with your Wave Beam and a tunnel will open. Alternatively, you could have just taken the elevator from Ghavoran to Dairon and ended up in this room. Either way, grab MISSILE EXPANSION #60.

 


Missile Expansion #61

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Speed Booster, Screw Attack

 

Go to the bottom of the room and charge up your Shinespark. Shoot into the left wall, just underneath where the spider tracks are, and the wall will give away. Screw Attack through the blocks and then follow the tunnel to the bottom. Eliminate all the enemies down here and then start Speed Boosting towards the left wall. Don’t Shinespark yet though, just allow yourself to crash through the wall. Jump up and grab MISSILE EXPANSION #61. Now, Shinespark your way out.

 


Missile Expansion #62

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Varia Suit, Gravity Suit (recommended), Morph Ball, Grapple Beam 

 

Slide through and jump across the pool of lava until you get to the other side. Destroy the Grapple block and roll through the top tunnel and you’ll run into MISSILE EXPANSION #62. Once you’ve grabbed it, drop into the lava and go to the far left side of the room. Speed Boost towards the right and you’ll go crashing through some blocks and unearth MISSILE EXPANSION #63.

 


Missile Expansion #63

Location: Dairon

Requirements: Speed Boost, Gravity Suit

 

Slide through and jump across the pool of lava until you get to the other side. Destroy the Grapple block and roll through the top tunnel and you’ll run into MISSILE EXPANSION #62. Once you’ve grabbed it, drop into the lava and go to the far left side of the room. Speed Boost towards the right and you’ll go crashing through some blocks and unearth MISSILE EXPANSION #63.
