Remnant 2 Nightweaver Location

In Morrow Parish, Losomn region, two main quests involve the Nightweaver boss: “Strange Web” and “The Nightweaver.” As you approach the Asylum’s gates, you’ll learn about the Nightweaver.

To reach Morrow Sanitorium, gather three Stone-carved Dolls in different areas:

  1. Behind a shelf on the second-floor study.
  2. By the front yard’s side amidst rubble.
  3. Behind white curtains in a large third-floor room.

Offer these dolls to a woman in the basement to unlock the Asylum safe. Inside, you’ll find the Nightweaver Stone Doll.

Nightweaver Phase 1 

Venture into the dark realm and prepare for your initial encounter with the formidable Nightweaver boss, found lurking in the mysterious grounds of the haunted asylum. This face-off takes place in the expansive courtyard, reached through the luminescent crystal door tucked away in the asylum’s basement.

I’ve faced this tough boss multiple times, and here are my expert tips:

Nightweaver’s Attacks:

In the battle’s first phase, the Nightweaver deploys four key attacks as far as I experienced, and understanding them is vital for your defense:

  1. Inevitable Ground Strike: Watch out for a quick lunging strike followed by a powerful ground pound.
  2. Icy Assaults: She launches homing icy projectiles twice in a row.
  3. Fireballs: Hurls fast blue fireballs your way.
  4. Blue Spiders: Summons fragile blue spiders that can disrupt the battlefield.

Useful Strategy:

  • Use a fire damage mod to deal with the spider phase when she’s vulnerable.
  • Balance evading attacks with dealing fire damage.
  • Conserve healing items and avoid unnecessary damage.

Nightweaver Phase 2

Brace yourself for the second encounter with the Nightweaver as the battle intensifies and the battlefield shifts within the confines of the Asylum. Here’s how to deal with the Remnant 2 Nightweaver phase 2.

Nightweaver’s Attacks:

  1. Melee Strikes: She uses powerful melee moves.

  2. Disappearance Act: Nightweaver vanishes and surprises you.
  3. Beetle Bombers and Lifesteal Rend: She summons Beetle Bombers and has a Lifesteal Rend attack below 50% health.

Useful Strategy:

  • Navigate carefully through narrow corridors.
  • Engage her in the lobby area for more space.
  • Watch for her melee attacks and disappearing acts.
  • Be cautious of homing crystals and spider attacks.

The Alternate Kill Method

Beating the Nightweaver in Remnant 2 can be an intense, high-stakes ordeal. However, there’s a less conventional but potentially more rewarding method to achieve victory. The Remnant 2 Nightweaver alt-kill method involves aiming for the Nightweaver’s heart during a critical moment of her attack pattern.

Identifying The Right Moment

  • During the Nightweaver’s first phase, target her heart when she summons Beetle Bombers.
  • Her heart becomes vulnerable during this animation.

Handling The Beetle Bombers

  • Focusing on the heart may prevent you from dealing with Beetle Bombers, which can explode when near.
  • However, successfully using this method stops her from summoning Beetles in the second phase, only spawning them when she emerges from the floor.


  • Defeating the Nightweaver with this strategy yields the “Nightweaver’s Finger.”
  • Craft the “Nightshade,” a melee weapon with 47 damage, 18% critical hit chance, and 110% weak spot damage.
  • The Nightshade also has a -20% stagger modifier, making it effective in close-quarters combat.
  • Its unique Mod ‘Beyond the Veil’ turns your Neutral Evade into mist, providing lifesteal for a limited time. A perfect dodge can extend this effect to 10 seconds.

With that, I hope you know all about the Remnant 2 Nightweaver and how to defeat it using the Alternate kill method. In my experience, Nightweaver can be difficult to discover due to the various puzzles and steps involved, but defeating it is even harder. But by using the different tips laid out and even the alt-kill method, you should have no trouble!

There is much more for you to discover in Remnant 2, such as the chest code and the best traits available. You can also learn to solve the Lament Puzzle and the difference between the Faelin or Faerin choice. And if you want to get stronger in the game, you can learn about the Summoner or the Best Medic build.
