The huge boss in Dead Space Remake is called Leviathan Remnant. The walkthrough explains when you fight the creature in chapter 8: Search and Rescue, how to use the ADS turrets to destroy the monster's weak points, how to replenish oxygen, how to deal with the Leviathan's attacks and how to defeat the great creature.
Location of fighting Leviathan Remnant
You encounter Leviathan for the first time in chapter 6. During chapter 8 - Search and Rescue, you will face it for the second time, this time it will be the Leviathan Remnant.
You fight the creature when you try to activate the long-range antenna. You will learn that there is a huge monster outside the ship that you need to get rid of. There are 2 airlocks leading to it and before you use them, collect supplies from the area first.
Description of the boss fight
You will defeat the boss using 3 ADS cannons. You can control them as you did in chapter 4.
Reach the central cannon first. You need to:
- interact with the terminal;
- hold down the aiming button (L2/LT on the controller);
- give commands to fire the cannon (interaction button - A on PlayStation, X on Xbox);
aim at the orange parts of the boss - you must first destroy the outer shell, then you will be able to hit the part of the Leviathan's body;
the boss will try to attack Isaac with its legs and, just like in the first fight, these attacks are signaled - fly quickly to the side and continue shooting at Leviathan as soon as possible; Keep shooting until the middle part of the Leviathan's body is destroyed.
You can now fly right or left.
If you fly to the right, make sure you destroy the growth and reveal the oxygen replenishment station. Don't forget about this and return to the station when you have less than 20 seconds left.
There is a new ADS cannon in the area - use it to attack the right side of the Leviathan.
Leviathan can use new types of attacks:
- swing its legs - try to fly over it so as not to get hit;
- release "mines" - fly away from them or destroy them, e.g. with the Pulse Rifle;
- shoot orange projectiles - just like in the first fight, you can grab them with kinesis and throw at the boss.
If you fly left, you must destroy the growths to expose the left ADS cannon. Only then will it be possible to use it to fire at the left part of the boss.
There is also a second oxygen refill station next to the left cannon.
Leviathan will eventually destroy the ADS cannons and it will probably happen before you defeat the monster. You then have to rely on more conventional methods:
- catch the projectiles spit out by the boss to throw them away;
- shoot at Leviathan's weak points with your weapons, e.g. Pulse Rifle or Plasma Cutter.
You defeat the Leviathan Remnant by destroying its 3 orange body parts. Killing the boss is rewarded with Get Off My Ship! trophy.
