Remnant 2: How To Cheese Annihilation? [Boss Fight]

Remnant 2 players can exploit glitch to cheese Annihilation, the epic boss battle, in both first and second phase.

In Remnant 2, the ultimate boss encounter is with Annihilation which presents a challenging two-phase battle. However, if players manage to exploit the weakness, they can gain a significant advantage and cheese the fight of Annihilation.

Key Takeaways
  • In Remnant 2’s final boss battle against Annihilation, there’s an exploit for a significant advantage.
  • At the start, head to the arena boundary, find a specific narrow path on the far-left edge and perform repeated dodge rolls against it.
  • After a few rolls, the wall should give way, trapping Annihilation within the arena during the first phase.
  • Attack safely from a distance, but note that this works only in the first phase; the second phase resets the player’s position.
  • During the third phase, avoid Root hounds and survive until the cutscene triggers to progress the game.
  • In Remnant 2, players can repeat the exploit by leaving the arena and using the same trick again.
Important: This exploit in Remnant 2 may be limited in the long run. The developers are likely aware of the issue and might address it in future patches.

In the final battle of Remnant 2 against Annihilation, a unique opportunity or rather a glitch presents itself to exploit, and I took full advantage of this exploit.

  • As soon as the battle starts, Annihilation will approach in flight.
  • After you spot him, turn around immediately.
  • Head towards the arena’s boundary, which is composed of thin red mist and scattered lava particles.
  • Look for a narrow path at the far-left edge of the boundary, indicated in the screenshot provided.
  • Use dodge rolls repeatedly against the arena border at the marked spot.
  • After a few dodge rolls, the wall should give way, allowing you to slip through to the other side.
  • Keep in mind that this method only works at the specific marked spot, as shown in the picture.

By successfully executing this glitch, you can exploit Annihilation’s secret weakness and gain a tactical advantage, making the final battle in Remnant 2 significantly easier. 

Second Phase

The advantage of this strategy lies in trapping Annihilation within the arena, enabling you to attack from a safe distance without taking damage. 

However, keep in mind that this tactic is only effective during the first phase. The second phase will reset your position, but you can still use the same trick to leave the arena and have an advantage over Annihilation.

Third Phase

During phase three, Annihilation resurrects for a final encounter. However, it’s not a full phase, and there’s no need to attack him. Your goal is to avoid the Root hounds and survive until the cutscene triggers. Simply stay alive and endure the last scare before the game progresses, no tricks in this phase.

That’s how I dominated the fight against Annihilation using the Remnant 2 Annihilation Cheese glitch. However, if you want to defeat him without using this trick, you will need to unlock the Best Traits to build the best character. It is also recommended to use the Best Classes possible as Remnant 2 has a variety of Classes and Archetypes.
