Weaknesses Missiles

Radion is a dense substance encountered by Samus Aran while on Tallon IV. It is mentioned specifically in her notes, alongside Brinstone, as a substance susceptible to Missiles.[1]

Radion structures are notably scarce, found in only two locations in Phendrana Drifts. The first is a decorative grating in the Phendrana Shorelines.[2] The other instance is the Radion based outer casing of the fuel cells beneath one of the large tower structures in the Control Tower.[3] The Radion casing can be destroyed with Missiles, opening the way to the Artifact of Elder.
