In the first DLC of Remnant 2, there are new bosses to face and defeat. Once you have returned to the world of Losomn and explored the first area, the first boss you will be called to face is the Remnant 2 Awakened King Sunken Witch boss. In this article, therefore, we will tell you which strategy to use to get the better of this boss and be able to continue with the game.
How to beat the Remnant 2 Awakened King Sunken Witch boss
The first difficulty in facing this boss is the fact that you will not have a large arena at your disposal, so the movements must be well-studied because you will not have much space at your disposal. The Remnant 2 Awakened King Sunken Witch boss comes with a big ship hook as her main weapon, so all of her attacks will come from using this weapon. However, there are actually only three attacks, so you won't have to learn the pattern of many moves, also because there is no second phase of the fight. The whole battle will play out the same way.
The thing you need to know is that most of his attacks consist of two hits, so always pay attention to the second hit and don't let your guard down. The Sunken Witch will move her weapon from above, below, or horizontally, which will allow you to take advantage of moments just after the conclusion of her attacks to strike her. The most difficult and dangerous attack in her arsenal is definitely the one in which she will use her weapon like a tornado that ends with a powerful downward swing.
Also, be careful that the Sunken Witch can often make use of some dogs that will try to attack you and divert attention from her. Finally, also watch out for a leaping jump attack when she is near you, as this is an attack capable of inflicting a lot of damage. However, with the right strategy, you shouldn't have any particular problems defeating this boss, even if the battle arena is quite narrow.
In this regard, there is the possibility of changing the setup of the arena. In fact, as soon as the Sunken Witch targets the various wooden structures (you will have to make sure you are nearby, so she will try to hit you even if, in reality, you are trying to make her complete these structures), they will be destroyed and so you will have more space to move. This will certainly make the fight much easier because you will have space to keep your distance and take cover.
In any case, the right time to hit her is, as we have already mentioned, the moment when she has just finished her lei combos. In fact, at that point, you will have the possibility to attack her without worrying about being hit, as the boss will need a few seconds of cooldown before being able to resume her combos. Also, keep in mind that all of her attacks are melee, so you won't have to worry about sudden attacks from afar. This thing, therefore, will also allow you to keep your distance without running into too many dangers.
Consequently, the best strategy to use to defeat this boss is to always keep a distance and shoot, being careful not to let your opponent get close to you. In case the Sunken Witch makes use of her tornado attack, all you have to do is run. As there is no effective way to stop it, you will simply have to wait for it to finish. However, pay attention to the attack that follows the tornado and be ready and alert to dodge it.
By continuing to follow this strategy, you will be able to defeat the Remnant 2 Awakened King Sunken Witch boss, and therefore, you will get rewards for your hard work. Rewards include a hex wreath, a tome, five Luminite crystals, and 500 scraps. Now, what remains for you to do is continue your adventure while waiting to meet the next boss to face and defeat.
