The Air Brake (エアシューター?, lit.: "Air Shooter") is a treasure found in the game Pikmin 2, resting on a ledge in the Awakening Wood. The Air Brake is a badminton shuttlecock, and reaching this treasure requires the player to interact with a scale.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

Location of the treasure on the radar. Click for a bigger image.

The ledge that the Air Brake is placed upon is located near Snagret Hole, and to protect one's Pikmin, it is recommended that the player clear out nearby enemies before attempting a retrieval (in particular, a pair of Yellow Wollywogs in a shallow pool). It may be worth nothing that the retrieval path for the Air Brake can bring the player's Pikmin into close proximity with a Burrowing Snagret, as well as a Creeping Chrysanthemum, both of which can quickly wipe out large populations of unattended Pikmin left to their own devices. The Red Bulborb and the Dwarves over the ledge should also be taken care of.

To collect the treasure, the player should put 15 Pikmin and one leader on the scale nearest to it, and 16 Pikmin on the other scale. Blue Pikmin should then be thrown at the ledge to get the treasure.

This treasure can also be obtained without using the scales by throwing Yellow or Purple Pikmin with a running start from the nearby area between two bridges.

Notes

Olimar's journal

The weather was beautiful today. In this region, the weather is always good. The plants and animals thrive on all that sunlight. I want to hurry up and finish cataloguing all of these treasures so I can get back to the sunshine.

Sales pitch

No height is too great to fall from if you possess this. It may be frightening, but get over it.
