The Labyrinth Sentinel is a main boss encountered within The Labyrinth. It guards the way to an important NPC. This page of our guide to Remnant 2 explains how to beat the boss, which is more of a puzzle than a fight.
Labyrinth Sentinel - boss description
The Labyrinth Sentinel is an entity controlling numerous cubes. Its only weak points are small, white squares on some of the cube's walls. It always follows a pre-set path, no matter how the player's moving.
- Movement and crushing - the cube maintains a set pace. If you stand in its way, it will crush you, killing you instantly regardless of your health.
- Projectiles - occasionally, the squares fire damaging projectiles.
- Hologram - the cubes can also project a hologram of the same size as them. It moves very slowly, but operates in a large area. Entering it causes damage over time.
How to fight the Labyrinth Sentinel?
This boss tests your mind and movement rather than reflexes. The cubes move around the area autonomously along a pre-set path. Their behavior is predictable and easy to learn. Do not let them crush you, as it means instant death.
Upon entering the arena, start looking out for small white squares on the cubes' walls. Shooting them depletes the boss' health. We recommend first destroying the squares in front of you and above you.
Moreover, destroying the weak point breaks the entire wall. This is very useful, as it makes this side of the cube helpless - it can no longer crush you with this side.
You can avoid projectiles with a properly-timed side dodge or by shooting them down.
Move around the arena in a controlled manner. Make thoughtful decisions on when to jump over pits to reach other squares. Wait for nearby cubes to start moving in a different direction, looking out for white squares to shoot down. If you're out of options, hide within the gaps you've created by breaking down the cubes' sides.
Defeating the Labyrinth Sentinel rewards you with:
- Lumenite Crystal x5,
- Tome of Knowledge,
- Conflux Prism.
- Scrap x750.
