A weapon straight from the original Metroid, this beam will freeze enemies. Samus Aran once used this weapon to freeze Metroids in order to kill them.
I must use the Ice Beam to destroy the Metroid.
A very useful weapon in Metroid. It allows you to temporarily freeze enemies. Although no damage is done to the enemy, another shot to un-freeze will cause damage. A must-have weapon once you get to Tourian.
With enough skill, the Ice Beam can be used to freeze Rippers or other enemies to form a stepping stone to reach places you normally couldn't get to.
