What Is The Corruptor In Remnant 2

Gigantic Root Entity, The Corruptor

As mentioned above, The Corruptor Remnant 2 is an extremely difficult boss to defeat, which can be found residing in The Great Bole in the world of Yaesha. The Corruptor is a gigantic root entity corrupting the Thaen. The Corruptor shoots a large laser beam from its mouth that can instantly deplete a player’s health bar. 

Weak Points

It is not like the Corruptor is invincible to damage or players can barely inflict any damage. Just like every other boss in the game, it also has a weak point. There is a Red Core that lies directly below its belly; while the Corruptor is in the sky, players can deal a massive amount of damage to the Corruptor by shooting the Red Core. 

How To Defeat The Golem

Guardian of Pan, The Golem

Fighting the Corruptor itself is not a hard task; however, the former guardian of the Pan, The Golem, is the real deal as it protects the Corruptor. It has four arms which are detachable. The Corruptor will sit back and do nothing, while the Golem will beat players up until they are on the verge of giving up.

The Golem has very tricky attack patterns, which are described as the following:

  1. The first attack that the Golem uses is the Detachable Arms. The Golem can detach its arms and will command them to attack you.

  2. The second attack in the Spinning Sword. The Golem will launch a spinning sword attack with all of its arms which is kind of hard to evade.

  3. The third and final attack is the Shockwave Jump. As you move from one platform to the other, the Golem will also jump right after you; this jump will create a shockwave that will push you away.

Disabling The Golem

Now that we know all the attacks of the Golem, let’s move on to the main part. That is how to defeat the Golem, as it protects the Corruptor and will not let you get close to it while it is alive. So there are two ways by which you can disable the Golem:

  1. The first method is that you can shoot all of the Golem’s arms, and while it is busy repairing its arms, you can shoot the Corrupter while depleting its HP. You can keep repeating this process until you defeat the Corruptor.
  2. The second method is to disable the Golem; you have to shoot its head which is the Golem’s weak point, as it will disable the Golem. Once the Golem is disabled, the Corruptor will try to fix it. This is when you get your chance to land your shots on the Corruptor’s weak spot, which is the Red Core under its belly.

Alternate Method To Defeat The Corruptor

The method that I mentioned above is one that can be used to defeat the Corruptor in a normal manner. However, there also exists an alternate kill method for the Corruptor. In the alternate kill method, players will have to defeat the Corruptor without disabling the Golem.

However, it is recommended that players should try out this method only when they have strong weapons that can deal a lot of damage to the Corruptor or in co-op mode. If players defeat the Corruptor by using the alternate kill method, then they will get the Hollow Heart as a special reward.

  • Simulacrum: Other items like Simulacrum will also be rewarded to players upon defeating the Corruptor. Simulacrum can be used for upgrading the weapons in Remnant 2.

With all of the information provided above, my guide on How to defeat The Corruptor Remnant 2 comes to an end.
