Distant Tundra Remix Tips and Strategy

Divide Tasks Efficiently

In the beginning of the mission, all three captains will start in a position far from each other. Use your multi-tasking skills to divide tasks properly while increasing the number of available Pikmin.

Use the Lock-On Feature

Make use of the lock-on feature (ZR) to attack enemies accurately and quickly. This can also OHKO small enemies easily and even allow you to strafe while attacking.

1: Divide Tasks and Defeat Enemies

Gather the Yellow Pikmin and jump on the mushroom to reach the area above. Get the pellet with eight Yellow Pikmin then have the last two start munching the electric gate ahead. Return Brittany to the Onion.

Pluck the Yellow Pikmin and remove the small mushroom on the right to get to the area north. Throw all the Yellow Pikmin over to the other side of the river then move Brittany southeast to the elevated platform near the mushroom.


Attacking with Red Pikmin.jpg

Pluck the Red Pikmin and defeat the Male Sheargrubs near the electric gate. Take their corpses to the Onion and command the remaining Red Pikmin to defeat the Fiery Blowhog. Return to the Onion with its corpse.


Defeating Arctic Cannon Larba.jpg

Pluck the Rock Pikmin, break the crystal, and ride the geyser to get behind the Arctic Cannon Larva. Defeat it, break the other crystal, and head north to the upper area.

Defeat the Swooping Snitchbug then break the crystal blocking a path to your left.

2: Continue Defeating Enemies

Take a Rock Pikmin with you and head south. Throw it in the hole and collect the red nectar that it will throw out.

Head east and lock-on to the Arctic Cannon Larva on the other side to attack it through the hole. After defeating it, return to the Onion with the corpse of the Snitchbug and the Larva that you defeated earlier.


Defeating Pyroclasmic Slooches.jpg

After the electric gate breaks, gather all the Red Pikmin together with the two Yellow Pikmin. Defeat the two Pyroclasmic Slooches and return to the Onion with their corpses.
