Metroid Dread contains the death of a secret boss just for the sequence breaker

Players have found a moment to break a sequence in Metroid Dread. This allows you to instantly defeat one of your early bosses if you find one of your Samus upgrades earlier than you intended.

Spoilers beyond Metroid Dread

In Metroid Dread, Samus again encounters a space pirate monster known as Clade. This was one of the early boss battles and has two phases to test your skills in the game up to that point. However, if you don’t get in the way to get the grapple beam and then the morph ball bomb, you can dispatch this giant lizard in a blink of an eye.

As shown by @Glaedrax On Twitter, Samus can use a morphball bomb to destroy a portion of the left wall, break into that portion of the destroyed wall, and shoot into Clade’s stomach. Once inside, Samus completely destroys the interior of Clade and ends the battle without going through that phase.

Due to the unlimited nature of Metroid games Sequence breaks have long been part of its history. However, this may be the first time a player has been rewarded for getting an upgrade out of the box, faster than many other players.

In a review of Metroid Dread, he said, “Regain legendary exploration and progress, merging with great Modern Combat and some of the best boss battles ever.”
