Good Bad Bugs: Apparently, the team didn't think players would try to scan the projectiles from the Omega Pirate's cannons.
This is an Elite Space Pirate.
Elite Space Pirate Description 3.
- The Scan Dash, which lets you get the Space Jump as soon as you land on Tallon IV as well as an early Plasma Beam, and, when Meta-Ridley lands while his wings are still functional, a Boost Ball to the chest will ground him. These two were removed from the Player's Choice and Trilogy versions of Prime.
