Star Fox Zero Medals – Story Mode

To get the Alternate Path, transform into the Walker after passing two archways near the exit and step on the red switch. Finally, to destroy the core, destroy only one of the radar dishes, head inside the opening and destroy the core that appears.

The 1st ship that you need to save is directly in front of you at the start. Shoot down the frigate on left to get it done. The 2nd one appears shortly after the 1st one – on the right side. Lastly, the moment Falco shouts “Fox, eyes up top!”, shoot down the Destroyer.

The room clearing starts in the first room of Phase 2. Once there, eliminate all enemies that enter the room and head to cockpit to see if anyone is left.

Finally, all the gold rings are in Phase 2. For the 1st one, go to the elevator room, jump onto the moving platform, and find it in a small chamber behind you. The 2nd one is at the start of the hallway and the 3rd one is at the end of the hallway with the lasers.

  • Ten medal tokens
  • Hack all Alpaca Tanks after colony power restored

To collect the tokens, enter the Gyrowing and deploy Direct-i on either side of gold coin. From there, head to two platforms near the vertical tunnel. To get the final two tokens, head to platform with the locking console.

For the next Medal, activate Gigarilla using Direct-i and lure it to carrier with Andross’s face near the right side of portal. After he throws it, pick up the Medal from the area.

  • Ten medal tokens
  • Activate dormant left wing searchlight
  • Deactivate right wing shield generator last

To turn on the searchlight, head to the left side of the base and clear the area. Once there, use Direct-i to turn it on, turn it off, and grab the Medal.

Coming to generator, turn the one on the left side of the base, rescue Katt, and then deactivate the second one. Once done, grab the Medal from the escape hatch.

Sector Beta

  • 260 hits
  • Buzz one of the friendly carrier’s towers
  • Destroy every large cannon emplacement on the granby
  • Three super gold rings

To earn the first Medal, once you acquire Arwing’s control, head left after U-Turn, and fly over the ship that was on your right at the start. Coming to cannons, two are on the front, one on each side of bow, and two on the stern – blast a total of four to earn the 2nd Medal.

The 1st gold ring is in the generator room of Gransby, the 2nd one is dropped by Kate, and the 3rd one is dropped by Andrew. Finally, do not let Peppy take damage and blast Pigma, Andrew, and Leon as early as possible. Use bombs and be aggressive on Wolf.

  • Land on platform on the right when Crab Tanks first appear
  • Three super gold rings
  • Above blockade on the way to the teleporter
  • Destroy every Strider, Worm, and Alpaca

To get the 1st ring, head right after entering the valley after defeating three robo-worms. The 2nd and 3rd badges are also in the same area – hover from one platform to other to get them.

To get the fourth Medal, you need Gravmaster and use it to get towards the portal. For the final Medal, you need to blast every Strider, Worm, and Alpaca – do not forget a Walker on the right side of the map, near the end of cavern.

To get the fourth Medal, simply pass through the ring on the right side of the portal. To get the final Medal, you must destroy small missiles before they deploy drones – these appear after destroying first and second Copperheads.


  • 120 hits
  • Left behind by defeated Leon
  • Three super gold rings
  • Destroy all boss legs at once
  • Destroy all Striders

The second Medal is fairly easy and is a part of progression. In order to get all 3 rings, blast three golden Spider Drones at the start of Phase 2 to get them. To get the fourth Medal, topple the Mother Strider and speed around the legs to blast the last leg before it has a chance to regenerate all its legs.

In order to get the final Medal, simply destroy all Strider Drones before defeating the boss – if you hear Peppy encourage, the job is done!


  • 200 hits
  • Floating above early vine
  • Three super gold rings
  • Floating amid spiraling branches

After starting the mission, you will come across a total of three Salamanders. You need to avoid killing the third one which will loop around a vine nearby – providing you with the second Medal. In order to get the Mission Accomplished Medal, you need to destroy all of the Snaptraps scattered throughout the stage.

As for the rings, the first two are acquired from Katt and Snaptrap. As for the 3rd ring, take a stroll in the Walker form in the area where the Monarch Dodora sets up a fireball post.
