Remnant: From The Ashes – How To Kill The Ent

The Ent is an enormous sentient tree that you need to fight in Remnant: From The Ashes. It can be intimidating at first, with its large size and huge health bar, but taking it down is just a matter of learning some patterns and abusing a straightforward mechanic, which is that monsters in Remnant: From The Ashes can hurt each other.

Remnant: From The Ashes – How To Kill The Ent

The Ent fight has a couple of unique stages that you will need to deal with, but mostly what you will need to do is keep your distance, and the time your dodge rolls well. The opening phase involves a simple stomp attack. The stomp will send out a wave of energy that you need to dodge-roll to avoid. Focus on the first red wave, as once you dodge this one the second ring seems to be there for aesthetics. In between dodges, just put as much damage into the Ent as you can.

From time to time, an exploding enemy will drop from the Ent and run for you, but it will either die to the shockwave, or you can roll to dodge the explosion if you don’t want to waste time killing it. Sometimes the Ent will double smash the ground instead of stomping. This will expose a red cluster on its back, shoot this cluster for extra damage.

The Ent can also lean down and fire mortars at you from his back. These explode for massive damage, so you need to avoid them at all costs. Roll sideways to avoid getting hit. The mortars have roughly two-second travel time between launching and impacting with the ground. These seem annoying, but they are about to become your best friend. In between rolls, put some shots into the red cluster on his back for extra damage.

The final stage, which should start when you are about halfway through his health bar, is the most interesting. Multiple exploding enemies and small enemies with daggers will spawn and rush you, while the Ent is throwing mortars. I found the best way to deal with them was rolling in a large circle around the Ent, and letting them build up. Then, when the mortars start to hit, they will wipe out all the smaller monsters.

You’ll need to put as much damage into the Ent as you can in between these stages, and you can risk a few shots even while dodging the mortars. Once you get your roll timings down and learn to roll in an endless circle around the Ent, keeping him in the center of the arena, this fight is relatively simple.

Stamina is the most crucial Trait in this fight, and I had the easiest time dealing with the Ent when using the Assault Rifle and the Sniper Rifle.
