How to beat Legion in Remnant 2

If you're struggling with Legion, here are some quick tips to help you:

  • Make use of the pillars in the boss arena. As soon as the cutscene ends, hide behind one of the pillars to avoid staring at the glowing boss portal. Viewing the portal builds up Madness, which can deal tons of damage to you, so try hiding when the bar starts to max out. Patience is key.
  • Shoot the glowing circle whenever you have the opportunity. Although the portal of the boss builds up Madness, it is also your best chance to chip away at Legion’s HP.
  • Hitting the boss directly hardly does any damage, so you want to ensure that you're shooting the glowing portal. Alternate shooting and hiding behind pillars, in order to limit the Madness buildup.
  • Deal with the minions first. The boss spawns minions that attack you constantly during the fight. While hiding behind cover, be sure to take out those minions as soon as they spawn. If you ignore them and solely focus on the boss, they will quickly gang up on you.
  • Dodge the shockwave that Legion sends toward you. Each time this boss spawns new enemies, a red shockwave will be hurled towards you. Wait for the shockwave to get close and then roll dodge towards it as it's about to hit you. Having a lightweight armour set for quick rolls is recommended for this fight.
