Lock & Load


Lock & Load

Whether you're playing multiplayer or Solo Mode, you've got to be prepared for anything in the Federation Force. Luckily, you can customize your Mech before each mission with all the gear you need to get the job done. You can only hold so much, though, so plan carefully.

Auxiliary Ammunition

Each Mech is equipped with a standard Power Shot, but there are additional weapon options you can choose from, including:

  • missile
  • super missile
  • flame shot
  • proximity bomb
  • slow beam

Some enemies may have certain weaknesses, so plan accordingly.


MODs are computer chips for your Mech that can add benefits like causing more damage, improved shields, and other status bonuses. Here are a few examples:

Lone Wolf

Mech damage output is doubled, while incoming damage is halved. (Solo play only.)


Repairs Mech to full upon taking lethal damage. Process destroys the MOD.

Payload Density II

Increase damage of missiles by 30%.

Strategically pairing MODs with Auxiliary Ammo can greatly boost your effectiveness.

Finders keepers

You can often find Auxiliary Ammo and MODs in crates or hidden areas during missions, so keep your eyes open!

Drone alone

Metroid Prime: Federation Force features multiplayer support up to four players in campaign mode, but even if you're a lone wolf, you don't need to fight alone in Solo Mode. Instead, you can equip three heavily-armed drones that hover near you, offering a little extra support when you need it.

Galactic Federation Intel File: Power Suit

It's no accident that Federation Force Mechs bear a striking resemblance to Samus Aran's legendary Power Suit. It has served her well in the battle against Space Pirates, offering not only enhanced defensive capabilities, but also an array of powerful weapons. Not much is known about the origin of the Power Suit, but it is believed to have been created by the Chozo, an ancient, highly advanced race of bird-like beings.
