If you shoot beams at him when he isn't targeting you they will bounce off of him. Instead, when he comes to shoot at you, use a super missile and he will explode. After you defeat him, roll into a hole in morph ball mode and get through the maze to claim the power bombs. There is a save station through the Ice beam door.
Note: You can't scan the Shadow Drone. I just gave it the name that's on the internet.

To get this artifact, you need a super combo for the power beam. Go to Magmoor Caverns and go to the lava lake. You can see the artifact with x-ray visors. The pillar (column) in the center is breakable. Use the missle combo and blow it up. Once you break it, you can retrieve the artifact inside.

First find the varia suit, then you can survive through the heat of Magmoor Caverns and get out of there.

Only the Power Beam and the Super Missiles affect them. I'd suggest using the Super Missile because it is powerful against them.

Once you get the morph ball power bomb in Phazon Mines, go to a tunnel in Magmoor Caverns that has a scanable floor. Once there plant a morph ball power bomb where you scanned the floor. The sides of the tunnel will collapse, then go under the tunnel without falling in the lava. Ther you will see the upgrade.

When you enter the room where you first get you wave beam, you will be attacked by 4 small ice turtles. Defeat them and a huge ice turtle will appear. immediately turn into the morph ball mode and lay bombs all around the creatures feet.

To finish Metroid Prime more quickly all you have to do is to start looking for the Chozo Artifacts sooner. (only do this if you have finish the game before) Start getting Chozo artifacts as soon as you get the abilities that let you reach the artifacts, and if you have all that you can find then go to the Chozo temple and start scanning all of the stones.

First, go into the temple in Phandrana Drifts. go in and go to the top. Destroy the Chozo head( the one on the top right corner), with a missile. Go morph ball and plant a bomb in the hole. then the door will open. Go in and defeat the baby Sheagoths. after that, the big one will appear. Instead of shooting at him, go up close so he uses his ice breath. When he uses it, go back a little so it misses. then go up again and fire a missile. Do this repeatedly until he dies. (It took me about 13 times, so be sure you have a lot of missiles!) Then you get the Wave Beam.
