Pikmin 3 Battle Enemies Missions Guide

Pikmin 3
Battle Enemies work in the same way as collecting treasure mission mode in Pikmin 3. You will be allotted a specific time frame to complete a mission by defeating all the enemies in a particular map.

Based on the amount of Treasure players collect; they can receive different medals/rankings. There are a total of five maps with some easy strategies that we think would work well for you if you’re planning to go for Platinum in all these maps.
