How to Beat Nemesis in Returnal – Boss Fight Guide

This enemy will attack you in phases. So, here we have explained how to dodge and attack in each phase.

Phase 1

This boss is looking like a rock or a mountain. All you need to do here is keep moving left and right to avoid all of the orbs it is throwing at you. Also, keep shooting at the red glowing piece on his ‘chest’ which is the middle part of this alien. You just need to dodge orbs and target to shoot on its chest.

Phase 2

After completing Phase 1, Nemesis will crumble the floor and relocate to Phase 2. Here you will use your Hookshot to get on the other platform which is facing the boss. This phase is similar to phase 1 but here you will get more attacks from the main boss such as bullet hell, shockwaves, and sweeping lasers. Just keep dodging by moving from one place to another and keep firing on that red weak spot at all times. 

Phase 3

Once phase 2 will finish, Nemesis will become more furious and it will blow you away. You will be free falling and use your Hookshot to climb up onto solid platforms and thus, go closer to Nemesis. 

It will throw huge swirls at you but you just leap from platform to platform and thus, you will be able to avoid most of it. Along with it, keep attacking it using a combo of your grapple hook, constant fire, and dashes. We recommend using Thermogenic Launcher, Tachyomatic Carbine, or a Hollowseeker.
