Tropical Forest Tips and Strategy

Use the Bomb Rocks Effectively

Using Bomb Rocks.jpg

Dwarf Orange Bulborbs and Orange Bulborbs are scattered all over the map and might give you a hard time if not dealt with properly. Use the Bomb Rocks that you have picked up along the way to quickly get rid of these enemies.

Defeating Baldy Long Legs

Attacking Baldy Long Legs.jpg

The weakpoint of Baldy Long Legs, the boss of this mission, is its orb-like body. When you have gathered enough Pikmin, use an Ultra-Spicy Spray to boost your Pikmin's combat capabilities then attack its body until it is defeated.

Defeat all enemies in the central area and collect the nectar from the Red Spectralid. Don't bring the corpses back to the Onion and proceed to the upper area by riding the geyser.

Take out the two Dwarf Orange Bulborbs with your Pikmin then throw a Bomb Rock in the middle of the Orange Bulborbs to instantly dispose of them. Throw some Pikmin on to the ledge to grab the 3 Bomb Rocks.

Destroy the dirt wall with a Bomb Rock. Defeat the two Dwarf Orange Bulborbs and the Swooping Snitchbug then toss Bomb Rocks on the two remaining enemies (a family of Bulborbs and an Orange Bulborb).

Gather the Yellow Pikmin and take one of the Orange Bulborbs back to the Onion. Defeat another Red Spectralid nearby and collect its nectar for later. Return Brittany to the Onion with the Yellow Pikmin.

Find the Baldy Long Legs, consume an Ultra-Spicy Spray, then throw all your Pikmin at the body of the giant.
