Remnant From the Ashes Nightmare: How to Beat

Bosses in Remnant: From the Ashes covers a compendium of these various special type of Enemies that a player will encounter in the game. Unlike normal Enemies, bosses have a higher amount of health and are distinctively unique with their own set of moves. Defeating a dungeon boss will surely reward players with various items that can be useful when it comes to character progression. Not only do they provide special loot upon defeat, but they also serve as a key to unlocking more areas and quests for story progression.

There are two types of bosses that you can encounter as you travel to different realms, the following are:

Remnant From the Ashes Guide

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
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 Dreamer

The final boss you’ll face in Remnant: From the Ashes is accessible via the key obtained by the Founder. This will allow you to unlock a secret area in B3 area of Ward 13. Here, enter the Research Lab and interact with the mirror to reach Ward 17 and the Dreamer boss.

The Dreamer, as pictured above, is a hovering boss that will send out fast moving clusters of projectiles and will often do it from far away. For such a fight, it’s encouraged to use a high-calibre sniper rifle and if possible, employ the aid of a friend in co-op to make the fight easier. While he’s on the ground, a swipe attack with the cables will cover a large radius so roll backwards.

Then there’s a ground slam attack which causes a mini-explosion. Deal with the smaller goons, as usual while focusing fire on the cybernetic helmet of the Dreamer. Once you bring his health down to zero, Dreamer transforms into a much larger beast, Nightmare (pictured below).

From the circular blue spirals on its wings, the Nightmare will send out fireballs one by one in quick succession, however these projectiles are slower than Dreamer’s and easier to dodge. It also takes a while to charge so you can always predict these fireball attacks.

The Nightmare will then initiate a sequence whereby your visibilty is fogged and smaller minions appear which you can fight or flee from. During this sequence, you cannot see or fight The Nightmare. Find an archaic symbol in the darkness to get back to the normal fight with The Nightmare.

The final boss has perhaps the largest health pool, understandably so. So give it everything you got, from ranged weapons to incendiary ammo to applying poison status effects. If aren’t carrying any powerful weapons or an ally to help you, this will be a very long fight indeed.

There’s an additional attack where The Nightmare marks you as the target and focuses an instant telepathic attack. This is when the same archaic symbol appears on the boss enemy. You can dodge it by moving away at the right instant.

You have to play this fight slow and methodological. With patience and dishing damage here and there, you’ll be brought to the end of the fight. There are no tricks up Nightmare’s sleeves (if it has some). Eliminate it and bring an end to your hellish journey in Remnant: From the Ashes.
