Metroid Dread How To Defeat The 2nd Boss Corpius & Get Cube

Before reaching the boss you will come across a door that is being guarded by an enemy with a shield. You need to get close to the enemy for it to attack you and expose its eye. You can also parry the enemy attack to deal more damage and destroy it easily.

To defeat Corpius you need to aim for its head and hit it with charged beam or rockets. While doing so you need to dodge its tail. Try to destroy the poison smoke he throws at you in the air using your normal beam attack to obtain rockets and energy.

Once you deal enough damage to the boss, he will turn invisible exposing the core of the tail that you can damage by a normal beam attack. You can dodge its tail and use the free aim to attack the core. After dealing enough damage he will show your back towards you.

When the boss shows its back, you can slide under the boss but be careful just you are about to reach the head side, he will attack you with its tail and there will be a flash. Quickly press the X button to parry the boss attack. After parrying you will get a chance to deal massive damage using your rockets. Make sure you have enough rockets available to deal massive damage after parrying his attack.

The boss will show its back 2-3 times depending on how much damage you have done. You have to parry his tail attack every time while sliding under him to deal massive damage and defeat him easily. Without parrying the tail attack after sliding it will be difficult to defeat him. Once you defeat him you will get the phantom cloak ability using which you can pass through the door that closes automatically when you get near.
