Pikmin 3 Deluxe: How to Break Glass & Shatter Walls
To put it simply, you need Rock Pikmin to break glass in Pikmin 3 Deluxe. As their name suggests, these adorable creatures look and work like little polished rocks and you can throw them to break glass objects. Similarly, if you see glass boulders or a glass wall, you can use these Rock Pikmin. In the case of a glass wall, though, you don’t need to throw them. You can make them Charge towards the wall using X which will make them break it easily.
As you can tell, Rock Pikmin will come in handy in more than one situation – even in a boss battle. Plus, their ability is a welcome change from the Red Pikmin who are resistant to fire and the Blue Pikmin who can thrive underwater. So, make sure you have them always.
You will unlock them as you progress in the game and reach the Garden of Hope section’s cave. When you encounter a miniboss called Medusal Slurker, you have to beat it in order to get the Rock Pikmin contained inside it. As you continue playing, you will reach the part where you have to free Brittany. That’s when you can start to switch between characters.
The strong Rock Pikmin will help you out by being immune to any force that tries to crush or impale them. Due to their tough exteriors and durability, they can also break crystals, ice and armor of big animals.
