How do I get past fist stage of Bryyo?
Just started Bryyo. Got to the platform just outside the gateway that looks across a canyon. What now? I can't manage a jump to any of the ledges. Am I missing something obvious? darlyp38 - 8 years ago
Thx for trying to answer my vague question.... I finally figured out how to get past that area. Now I am stuck battling Rundas for the millionth time!!! arghhhhh I can never get him weaker than half life no matter how many times I pull off his armor and shoot him.... any tricks to killing him? darlyp38 - 8 years ago
You'll have to be more specific. I think I know where you're talking about, but it's been a while. Can you check your map and tell me the name of the room you're having trouble in? SmokeRulz (Expert) - 8 years ago
The only thing I can add is to get as many energy tanks as possible. If you go to the first couple rooms of the Thorn Jungle area, you can find a tank there that should give you 4 tanks before you fight Rundas. The battle's fairly tough, but as long as you know the general procedure for fighting him, all it generally comes down to is avoiding his attacks and whipping his tail. The latter more than the former because he will stop his attacks when you stun him with enough shots. And when he goes hyper at 20% life, which all the bounty hunters do, you must also go hyper to finish him off. If you don't, your weapons won't hurt him, and you won't survive.

Don't just shoot him. After you have removed his shield, always get a good charged blast on him or 2 and as many successful rockets as possible. One thing i noticed about this version of Metroid Prime, when you start doing heavy damage on a boss, they tend to drop health and rocket ammunition (depending on which you need). I am now just past Elysia's first part due to the fact that you need to leave and do some things before I can entirely finish the quest on this planet, and of all bosses so far, Rundas was one of the "difficult" ones. Don't forget you also have your "+" button for uber damage lol (If you are using this gun though and you run out of safe time and about to corrupt your suit, waste your whole energy tank by shooting it all out to return back to normal, don't just panic and let it get to you).

Wow a 6 month old question!
Luckily for you I just beat him so i have the strategy fresh in my mind.
First of all Go to you Options menu and select the second option of the lock on feature to disable free aim.
This makes this boss a lot easier.
Second make sure you have at least 2 energy tanks.
Now in the beginning of the battle Just do what you normally do shoot-shoot and shoot.
When you pull off his armor for the first time he usually retreats to the top of his ice made pillars and fires 3-4 ice cubes at you. Fire a charge shot when he prepares the attack and shoot down the ice cubes. These drop health and missiles. After a few times you should drop his hp to around 20%. Then wait until he stands still enter Hypermode and kill him insanely fast.
On a side note try locking on a doing strafes with the B button it helps a lot to avoid his freezing icicle attack Death_Ragnell - 7 years ago
When you are fighting Rundus, don't just go around shooting crazy. Normally all bosses are lock-on, free aim which means you can lock-on to keep him in your sight, but you aim freely to move the cursor (Can't remember if Rundus counts). I used to be addicted to charge shots, but remember-Rundus moves fast when he skates on the ice, so just shoot regular shots really crazy (not literally) to do minimum, but fast damage. You can always use missles to do an automatic lock-on attack, but not when he skates because he is too fast. When you eventually rip his shielding off, go to Hypermode! Obviously it is a use of health, but it drains his health like Phazon times a million. Trust me. I was in the situation too-I couldn't beat him, but this is what my friend told me, and it works! After you successfully bear Rundus, you get the ice missile. Good luck!! MarioMan12598 - 7 years ago
