The Metalion Space Fighter N322 is the player's ship in Nemesis 2. It was created by Dr. Venom to replace the Vic Viper.

The standard weaponry in the Metalion is exactly the same as Vic Viper, but it can get upgraded during the game by picking special power-ups.

This ship can use it's rear engine as auxiliary weapon.

Special Power Ups

In addition to the extra weapons, there are special powerups that grant the Metalion extra abilities for a limited time. They are:
  • Vector Laser - Shoot a very powerful and wide but slow wall-like laser.
  • E. Slow - Slows down everything, making it easier to dodge bullets and enemies.
  • Option Warrior - The same as Rolling Options.
  • Rotary Drill - The Metalion spins around like a drill and destroys anything it hit. It is invincible during this time.
