The final boss fight in Resident Evil 3 Remake is against the mighty Nemesis. The beast has two phases that you need to beat and each is more daunting than the last. In this guide, we will explain how to beat Nemesis in the final boss battle of Resident Evil 3 Remake.
How to Beat Nemesis Boss Fight
As I said, there are two phases of Nemesis boss fight in Resident Evil 3 Remake. In the first phase, Nemesis looks pissed but don’t even get me started of how mad he was in the second phase. The boss fight is great but is sure fun to go through.
Nemesis Phase #1
The first phase of the Nemesis boss fight is set in a pretty side area so you can move around a lot. As soon the Nemesis boss fight starts you should move to the rotting piles to your left and get your hands on the first aid spray and handgun ammo. Focus on Nemesis now, the good news is that his attacks are pretty well telegraphed so you have enough time to move out of the way. Look for a wide-range swipe of his arms on a downward crush. You will also see him pump both of his arms occasionally before his jumps on Jill. Baiting is a good plan here, bait him to attack you but stay on the move while strafing to the side. Once he misses his attack get some shots in. You can get around 3 shots in before your window of attack closes.
Use Dodge to get out of the way and not get hit by Nemesis. You will be able to get more First Aid sprays and Ammo from the rotting piles during the fight to keep an eye on it. Once you have done enough damage to the beast, Carlos will appear and Nemesis will go hide in one of the tanks above as minions appear in the arena. Carlos will tell you which tank Nemesis is hiding behind. Shoot the glowing panels to damage Nemesis. Keep in mind that if you take too long to shoot the tanks Nemesis will attack you. As you progress you will have to shoot the tanks faster to avoid an ambush by Nemesis.
Nemesis Phase #2
Once you have done enough damage to the boss and shot the tanks properly, a cutscene will trigger. Afterward, head over to the staff break room. You can save your game here and use the item box to restock. Now go to the door past the typewriter and use the walkway. The second cut-scene will trigger and you will be dropped into phase 2 of the Nemesis boss fight.
Use the railgun to attack Nemesis during phase two. You will need to charge the rail gun after firing by pressing the red power cores. The red cores are on the wall. Meanwhile, Nemesis will be shooting toxic gas at you, avoid coming into contact with it. He will also do ranged arm swipes that can be dodged. His attacks will make it hard to reach the cores but if you shoot the glowing circles on Nemesis you’ll have some breathing room. Use it to reach the red cores on the wall to charge the rail gun. Now rinse and repeat to eventually beat Nemesis boss fight in Resident Evil 3 Remake.
