High Ground is a room on the planet Alinos. It appears in Metroid Prime Hunters.

Description[]

High Ground has four main sections: the underground tunnels, the main floor, the 2nd floor, and the top floor. The entrance is in the underground tunnels. High Ground is also the first place that Samus meets Spire. Upon defeating Spire, a force field will block the only underground holes leaving the portal to be the only access point to High Ground until the first Octolith is taken.

This room seems to serve as a sort of cemetery for Alimbics, as both the Battle and Science Sarcophagi and Interment Chamber are found in it.

Multiplayer[]

The level's courtyard area.

The tunnels below the level.

The High Ground is a playable arena in the Hunters multiplayer mode. The stage gives Bounty Hunters, particularly Trace, plenty of areas to jump to and practice their sniping skills with the Imperialist. The main entrance to the underground room that would be accessible in the single player mode is sealed off by a Crash Pillar statue. The tight corridors prove favorable to Trace's Triskelion, who can use it to quickly take out opponents.
