This page of the guide to Resident Evil 3 Remake contains a detailed description of the fourth and final battle with Nemesis. The final battle happens after reaching the last big hall in NEST 2. This time Nemesis is in Stage 3 form - he has transformed into a giant motionless creature attacking with its tentacles. Kill this boss to finish the game.
The final battle will begin shortly after reaching the large hall of NEST 2 shown in the picture. Save the game and replenish stocks before facing Nemesis. A typewriter and items chest can be found in the Staff Break Room.
We recommend you fill your inventory with weapons and medicines - you won't need them later. You will even need the regular pistol to shoot the cysts. There are some supplies in the hall, but reaching them will always involve the risk of receiving damage from the boss.
The final boss battle starts when you get close to the exit of the hall. When regain control over Jill, Nemesis will be on the opposite side of the hall.
Start the final battle by reaching the railgun. Wait for it to open and pick up the big railgun.
Fire it at Nemesis. You won't beat the boss right now, but he will receive serious damage.
Unfortunately, there is a big problem - you have to "reload" the railgun by pushing all the red tanks. Don't do this right away - Nemesis can interfere deal you massive damage.
Your job is to shoot at the cysts that appear on the boss's body. You can use any weapon, even the regular pistol.
Nemesis won't remain idle during this part - you have to avoid his tentacles attacks. The boss has several attacks:
- A tentacle swing - stand as far away from the boss as possible, preferably in the corner.
- A powerful ground slam with two tentacles - quickly dodge sideways from where they will hit the ground.
- A tentacle attack in two different places - stand between the tentacles to avoid injury.
The boss can also spray acid. Fortunately, avoiding it is very easy - just stand on the opposite side of the arena.
If you run out of ammunition or medicine, you will find plenty of supplies in both corners of the hall. Don't forget to avoid Nemesis' attacks when you are running towards them.
Go to the red energy sources after all the cysts have been destroyed - Nemesis won't attack for a brief moment. Every time you reach a tank, you have to hold the interaction button to push it back into the slot and change its color from red to blue.
If you hurry, you should be able to activate two energy sources before Nemesis resumes attacks. This means you will have to destroy all the cysts on his body for the second time to be able to safely reach the inactive energy sources.
Once all energy sources are reactivated, return to the railgun. Fire a second shot.
There is a very simple QTE - first tilt the analog stick up to place the railgun in Nemesis' mouth and then press the R2/right trigger to fire the final third shot.
The third shot from railgun will kill Nemesis - this ends the final battle.
