Wide Beam is one of the best ability upgrades for Samus in Metroid Dread, allowing her to fire a trio of energy shots towards her enemies. Extra bullets are always handy when fending off swarms of enemies in Metroid Dread, however, Samus can also use the Beam on objects, pushing Wide Beam doors aside in order to enter some isolated places.

Ability upgrades help out Samus as she explores the plant ZDR. These upgrades are critical to progress in the game as they grant newer Abilities and open up places that are inaccessible otherwise. The Powerups and upgrades also play a critical role in Metroid Dread Bossfights, which, even with all the powerful equipment, provide a decent challenge.
