Space Pirate targets being destroyed.

The Shooting Range is a game mode featured in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. When the game is played for the first time, this unnamed room on board the G.F.S. Aegis is where it will start.

As with the Training Deck and Combat Sim, it allows Federation Force soldiers to sharpen their skills in preparation for missions.

In the Shooting Range, soldiers can practice shooting their weapons, and compete for the highest score. They must shoot only targets that have Space Pirate images on them, not Federation Marines. Shooting a Marine target will cost 1,000 points. The minimum score required to pass in training is 5,000. Any score below this is considered a failure. The music in the Shooting Range is a remix of Space Pirates from earlier games in the Prime series.


"Welcome to Mech certification, Marine. My name is General Alex Miles. I'll be administering the tests and training today.

Let's see if you've got what it takes to be a part of the Federation Force combat unit. Take care as we proceed, and show me all you've got!

The Mech you're sitting in is the latest design. It's state of the art--a result of countless hours of work contributed by the best and brightest of the Galactic Federation.

You'll be training in it today.

If you're not sure which buttons do what, you can always check the basic controls for the Mech on the Controls menu.

I'm moving you up to the shooting range now. Let's begin by powering up each system and making sure your Mech is fully functional."
