'tractor beam'

Samus demonstrates the "tractor beam".

The Charge Beam, in the Prime series, comes with a tractor beam effect, which can be used to attract pickups, be it Energy Capsules or ammunition, and this is helpful to Samus Aran, as she may be in the midst of battle and in need of pickups, and be unable to reach them safely. At the end of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, the tractor beam plays its largest role, in collecting Phazon particles to fire back at Dark Samus.
