A walkthrough for the Tundra Side Story in Pikmin 3 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. This guide will show tips and strategy for getting a platinum medal in this mission, as well as how to unlock the Tundra, the last mission in Olimar's Assignment.
|Previous Mission||Next Mission|
|Mission Name||Day 4: Tundra|
|Objective||Collect Fruits and Nuggets!|
|Clear Condition||Earn at least a Bronze Medal|
Tundra is unlocked by earning a Bronze Medal or higher in Day 3: The River, the previous Side Story Mission. Split your leaders so that one can explore the land, while another checks underwater with blue pikmin and keep an eye on the KopPad map, and you should have no trouble getting bronze or higher!
|Tundra Key Points|
Make sure your Pikmin don't fall over the ledge
Recover the fruit in hard to reach places
Split up to increase efficiency
Know what each Pikmin type is good for
There are many ledges in the Tundra, so its very easy for the Pikmin in your party to fall over one when you are walking. If this happens, it will be a huge pain to go back and get them, but given the time limit, it would be better to not have them fall off at all. Play it safe, and ensure they don't fall over when you're walking in areas with ledges.
There are a few pieces of fruit in rather high spots. For the small island located in the water, you'll have to enter the water with Blue Pikmin and throw them at the fruit to recover it. Near the start of the stage, there is also a small fruit on top of the snowman that is on a hill. You'll have to throw Yellow Pikmin at it, as they can be tossed higher than other types of Pikmin.
There are a lot of fruit and nuggets to collect in this area, so you'll have to split up to make the most of your time. While one leader's Pikmin are dispatched with carrying fruit or breaking down a wall, etc., swap leaders and cover more ground when exploring.
Red Pikmin have the highest DPA, so they are generally the best at fighting. In addition, they are immune to fire, so enemies like the Fiery Blowhog don't really phase them. Blue Pikmin can move and battle underwater, so naturally, you should take them with you to explore underwater areas.
Yellow Pikmin are immune to electricity, are fast at digging, and can be thrown higher than other Pikmin, When you need to recover fruit from a high spot, swap to your Yellow Pikmin!
