Samus and Zero Suit Samus amiibo's functionality.

Paint Jobs are unlockables in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. These are re-skins for Mechs that can be equipped in both Blast Ball and the Campaign. They are unlocked with every fifth high score medal achieved in the Campaign's missions (in both Normal and Hard Mode), and by completing certain feats in Blast Ball. Upon returning to the Game Lobby Screen, if a Paint Job was unlocked, General Alex Miles will contact the Federation Force and tell them that a new Paint Job is available in the Customize menu.

There are 3 score medals for each mission, and can be obtained by scoring enough points, meeting target times and completing bonus objectives, and if playing solo, by not using the Lone Wolf MOD. Certain missions may be easier or more difficult to complete with all three medals when playing alone or with friends. There are at least fifteen unlockable Paint Jobs, including Blast Ball-exclusive schemes based on Kraid, Mother Brain and Ridley.

More Paint Jobs can be unlocked using amiibo figures, including Samus and Zero Suit Samus. Those two figures also unlock extra AUX ammo for use in the Campaign. Other compatible amiibo, all of which are Mario characters, can be used to unlock Paint Jobs. A list of compatible amiibo that unlock Paint Jobs is below.
