This article is about the room in the Sanctuary Fortress. For the room on the Frigate Orpheon, see Reactor Core (Frigate Orpheon).

Reactor Core is a room in the Sanctuary Fortress in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. On the first visit, the doors will lock and Samus will be attacked by a rogue Quad. The doors will not unlock until it is defeated.

Several Luminoth Tech Crates are scattered on the bottom floor. As well, there are two transparent windows beside the entrance to the room, both contain units part of a reactor-maintenance system. Despite a lack of supplies, they are continuing to function. Radiation levels has not yet crippled them, but continued exposure will ultimately lead to shutdown.

The Dark Aether version of this room was the Hive Reactor.

Samus finds an Energy Tank in the Reactor Core.

Energy Tank

Once the room is clear of Rezbits, a Kinetic Orb Cannon will be revealed. If Samus uses it, she will be launched to a sphere covered in Spider Ball Tracks. Then, she can traverse some more and use the Boost Jump to launch off of several red nodes on each sphere (she should not waste time as some of them have electric sparks that trigger after a period of time), until she finally reaches an alcove containing the Energy Tank.
