Somebody did spoil for me that Kraid was in Metroid Dread. I was so shocked to see him show up, so early though. Since he’s supposed to been dead several times now, I kind of wonder how he keeps coming back.
Both of them definitely remember each other, lol.
This is definitely a fight about finding distances and dodging objectiles.
You spend more time fighting near his belly because he’s so freakishly tall.
But the important thing is to attack him near his face.
It took me about two or three tries, if I remember right. But I ended up slaying the beast until he decides to rise again in the Metroid series.
