Killing waves of monsters or one single powerful boss, Remnant 2 doesn’t leave you with dissatisfaction in any way. While earlier boss fights are easier to deal with, later ones aren’t. Utilizing both melee and ranged weapons is a pain that you must deal with. Anyway, in this guide, we will have a look at a similar boss in the game that requires both melee and ranged tricks to quickly beat. Yes, we are talking about the Root Nexus boss fight in Remnant 2.
The name of this specific boss pretty much gives away how it will fight. Well, root means the underground part of a tree, right? So, in this case, its roots are above the ground. So what about the nexus, you may ask? Let’s find out.
Remnant 2 Root Nexus Boss Fight Guide: How to Beat it
In simple terms, a nexus is a place where most players spawn or get revived. You may have heard this term in League of Legends already. Unfortunately, enemies get the same treatment, nothing less. The Root Nexus boss isn’t something that blasts powerful skills at you. Instead, it spawns enemies, just like its fundamental name says. These waves and waves of monsters will keep you away from attacking its roots. Well, don’t worry; we have some tips and tricks to beat it with ease.
Most players will probably use their ranged weapons to tick off the Root Nexus’ health little by little. Since enemies will spawn nonstop until the boss has been dealt with, the easier way is with your firearm. Ranged attacks don’t do much damage, and since your aim will be blocked by the waves of monsters, it won’t be that easy. The Root Nexus Boss ain’t so tough on its own, but the problem comes with its spawns. Even monsters are pretty weak and can be dealt with easily with AoE attacks and some melee hits. Just try to be aware of your surroundings and avoid getting cornered.
The Melee Approach
If you aim to clear the boss as soon as possible, then melee attacks are your best option. With the right timing and weapon, you can deal plenty of damage with each strike. The problem comes when the enemies are spawned. So, eliminate them as quickly as possible and immediately get close by rolling into its roots. Its weak spot is the flesh-looking areas between its roots. Attack only that, and retreat if more enemies start to surround you. With this hybrid approach, you can finish the fight three times faster than with the ranged-only approach.
Melee attacks are always the most effective way of removing a huge chunk of HP from in-game bosses. But that leaves you at a disadvantage because the enemy can also use melee and close-range attacks that are as effective as yours. Fortunately, in this case, Root Nexus doesn’t have any hidden tricks up its sleeve, so take full advantage of it. Utilizing your perks and stats is very important. As for the rewards, after beating this boss, you will get x100 Scraps, the Blood Bond Trait, and a Hallowed Egg Amulet (found in the bottom half of the tree). This amulet comes into play after you have used at least 30% of your weapon’s magazine to deal damage. What does it do? Well, it grants you a buff that increases your melee damage by 10% for 7 seconds and stacks five times flat. Pretty neat, right? Well, now you know how to beat the Root Nexus in Remnant 2.
