There are up to 20 different Remnant 2 Boss Modifiers. Here is a list of all of them and their different effects.

Modifier NameDescription
DisplacerIn Remnant 2, a boss with the Displacer modifier can suddenly move you around during a battle. Although this can be initially startling, it isn't overly challenging, as you still have the ability to aim and shoot at the boss.
DrainThe Drain modifier allows a boss to steal your health and heal itself. Quick reactions are necessary to protect yourself, as letting the boss steal your health followed by a critical attack might leave you struggling to survive.
Elemental ResistanceIf your strategy relies on using elemental attacks such as fire or ice, encountering a boss with the Elemental Resistance modifier can pose a real challenge. The boss will take reduced damage from these attacks, so understanding the boss's weaknesses and strengths before engaging in the fight is key.
EmpathyThe Empathy modifier creates a unique situation where the boss can heal by 25-50% when you use a relic. In such cases, alternative healing methods like utilizing animals, specialized healing skills, or consumable items may become necessary.
EnchanterWhen a boss has the Enchanter modifier, it gains the power to cause heavy damage through rot explosions. Paying full attention and relying on avoidance skills can help you navigate through this challenge.
HeartyA boss with the Hearty modifier becomes stronger and more resilient, meaning it can endure more hits. Defeating such a boss requires more persistence and strategic planning, putting both your patience and strategy skills to the test.
RegeneratorThe Regenerator modifier enables a boss to regain health during the battle. Constantly damaging the boss is essential; otherwise, the fight might become endless.
Skull CrackerThis modifier increases the boss's melee damage and stagger effect. When active, the boss can cause more harm when you are already hurt or stunned, making timing and teamwork essential.
SpitefulThe Spiteful modifier makes a boss more dangerous as its health decreases. If the boss reaches a second stage, it might even be able to knock you out in a single hit. Staying alert and aware is crucial in these instances.
UnstoppableA boss with the Unstoppable modifier becomes immune to staggering. As staggering is usually an effective way to counterattack, you'll need to employ alternative strategies to stay safe.
ViciousThe Vicious modifier makes a boss more potent in its attacks. It becomes quicker and more forceful in dealing damage, so focusing on dodging and blocking while finding opportunities to strike is vital.
ShockingWhen the Shocking modifier is activated, a boss will launch lightning attacks near you. Dodging these attacks is your best course of action.
TeleporterThis modifier allows a boss to vanish and reappear unpredictably, making the battle more complex and requiring you to adapt constantly.
VortexThe Vortex modifier enables a boss to pull you closer. Being mindful of positioning can help counter this effect.
Thick SkinA boss with the Thick Skin modifier becomes tougher, taking reduced damage. Even targeting weak points might not prove effective, leading to a prolonged and effortful fight.
Root GrabRoot Grab allows a boss to summon roots that can trap you. Watching where you step becomes vital to avoid entrapment.
SwarmThe Swarm modifier lets a boss call in rats, increasing the number of enemies you have to deal with, adding an extra layer of complexity to the fight.
MinionsWhen the Minions modifier is active, a boss can summon regular enemies from the world, creating more challenges during the battle.
WallerThis unique modifier in Remnant 2 traps players randomly within walls, limiting their view and assault on the boss, adding a new dimension to the fight.
BurstingSimilar to Root explosions, the Bursting modifier can cause random explosions around you if you linger in one place for too long.

With that, I have mentioned all of the Remnant 2 Boss Modifiers that are essential for players to know. These modifiers can be tricky to deal with due to their various effects. But once you get the hang of them, you’ll be able to face any boss with more confidence.
