Remnant From the Ashes Ancient Construct
There are two types of bosses that you can encounter as you travel to different realms, the following are:
Dungeon Boss – this type of boss is considered as a mini-boss which are superior, stronger versions of an elite enemy. Dungeon bosses have a high amount of health, a set of attacks, and have special passive or active abilities. To identify if you are about to enter an arena for a dungeon boss, you’ll find the entrance of the arena will be engulfed in fog and a checkpoint. Upon entering the arena, the battle will begin.
World Boss – World bosses are considered as the main bosses of the game, currently, there is no confirmation on how these bosses are encountered but it is safe to assume that these bosses may appear during an event or at the end of it, upon nearing the completion of a realm.
Dynamic Generation will be applied to bosses. Whenever a player enters a realm, the game dynamically generates a unique layout for pretty much everything, from area layouts, loots will be randomly scattered, NPC locations, enemies, and of course the bosses. As mentioned, each boss has its own unique passive or active ability, and in conjunction with the dynamic generation mechanic, every time a player enters a realm and by chance encounters a boss they’ve already encountered, its abilities and stats also change, making each encounter a challenge.
How to Beat Ancient Construct
To trigger the boss fight with the Ancient Construct, you’ll need to interact with the figure shown in the image below. You can do this outside the Wasteland Merchant’s shop by inserting Control Rod into the inanimate creature.
The boss itself is slow and weak, but the turrets helping him are numerous. These continue to fire at you chipping away at your health. Thus, our advice is to shoot down these turrets first. Since there are many turrets, you can deal with them methodologically by taking cover behind the metal sheets and taking them off one by one.
The Ancient Construct yields a long cleaver like weapon which it can use to hurl projectiles at you. It can also charge at you with a running melee attack so dodge accordingly. A slightly ranged attack is when it swings the blade while leaving hold of it. Roll backwards when this attack is initiated. Deal damage when he completes performing an attack, as you have an opportune moment at these points.
