After fixing the Subway Station power and proper route, Carlos will ask you to join him. This is where you will have your first encounter with Nemesis boss in Resident Evil 3. Nemesis is a stubborn and tough boss to beat, the best thing to do is run as far as possible. But at a rooftop, you will face him and this is the start of RE3 Remake Nemesis boss fight. If you are dying frequently or unable to escape here is what you have to do.
How to defeat Nemesis Boss in RE3 Remake?
Save some grenades, you can find one the cabinets inside another room near the Subway Station office. Grenades are best to stun Nemesis for a while, it helps you to escape as well if you are able to hit him right he will drop a supply case. A few common things you can find inside the supply case is weapon upgrades, ammo, explosive rounds, etc. So be sure to hit him enough to get one.
As soon as you reach the streets after activating all the power grid and setting up the train route, Nemesis will appear. If you have explosives avoid using it for now because this is mostly an escape mission. Meet Carlos first, after the cutscene, Nemesis will be back.
Lure the creature away from Subway Station:
In this objective, you have to take Nemesis away, for this run as fast as you can and shoot the generator at the stairs to stun this boss. Avoid wasting any ammo or explosives at the start. You will be in a warehouse kind of room full of boxes. Look for two red barrels near the wall on the left side. A vent is nearby, your escape point. Stand a little away and when Nemesis is near shoot the barrels. He will drop a supply case, grab it and break the vent to move further. You will drop in Sewers.
Find a way above ground:
Walk towards the metal door, in a cutscene, you will see Jill locks the door. The door on your left has a sewer map on the wall, grab it with red herbs and you can also use the storage container. Interact with the typewriter in the same area to save game progress. This room is the Manager’s office. Exit the room and continue walking left, you will reach a locked room with an electric lock.
You cannot open this without a battery, now here I will show you to find some important items. Like a Grenade Launcher and a Battery to unlock the door with electronic lock.
- Use Shotgun and your handgun to take down Sewer monster
- Preserve explosive rounds for the boss fight.
Where to find a Grenade Launcher in Sewers?
From the locked door turn around and follow the sewer water. Once you are down by sliding through a slop, wall till the end and take first left. Here you will be fighting a new kind of monster here, a massive mutated sewer rate, best killed by fire or explosives. A room at the end has the Grenade Launcher. Also this room as Explosive B, a new kind of item. Combine it with Explosive A to craft ammo for Grande launcher. Collect the MGL Grenade Launcher 2 that will play a big role in defeating Nemesis.
Where to find a Battery pack to unlock electronic locks?
Battery Pack is located in the Lab, inside sewers. Follow the map screenshot above to reach the Lab, you will also find Explosive A inside a locked cabinet in the lab. Collect the battery pack from a trolley and return to the locked door. It is best to preserve your Explosive Rounds as much as possible.
Now you got the battery pack, return back to the locked room which is the starting point in the above map screenshot. Use the stairs to climb up, you will be attacked by the sewer monster here, use your shotgun. If you consume all your explosive rounds then it will be tough to deal with Nemesis boss.
Go inside and first unlock the metal door on your left. Once it’s unlocked collect the battery-pack, use the newly opened door to continue walking and grab hip pouch from the room on the left end. This will add two new slots to your inventory. Collect your battery pack, and walk straight, go right and then use the stairs to go down. Unlock the door which is the last and final usage of the battery pack, you cannot take it back.
Nemesis Boss Fight:
The boss fight will begin as soon as you use the stairs to come out. Nemesis’s boss battle is divided into two parts, first is to escape him and second face him on the roof. Keep running ignoring other zombies around you. Avoid getting too near, Nemesis will follow you. You will be inside a room. Before going up, do these two things.
- Take the door on the right of stairs and interact with the typewriter to save your progress.
- Explosive A is inside this room on a table at your right. Combine A & B to craft some ammo for Grenade Launcher. If you had used any in the sewer you will definitely need it.
Keep moving up, use a handgun to kill the zombies. Use the planks to jump over the broken floor, just keep running until you reach the rooftop where the final boss fight begins. You will also see a typewriter rand a storage crate on your way. Keep looking for stairs to climb up, the path is straightforward.
Nemesis Weak Points:
- The cylinder thing on this back. Destroy that first.
- Lure him near the generator and then shoot on the upper body, mostly the chest.
Before you start using all grenade launcher, lure Nemesis near the generator. Use your handgun and shoot the generator. It will stun the boss and then use explosive rounds to burn him down. Use the wooden plans to shield yourself from direct attack, Nemesis will usually walk and use his weapon.
Herbs and explosive rounds are scattered in the roof area, look above wooden planks. You can grab them, but keep yourself shielded. And lure Nemesis near the generator. Shoot the generator and then start attacking the boss. If you have saved grenades then this is the best time to use them.
Nemesis is tough to beat, you will have to run around and keep bringing him near the generator. A yellow light means the generator will not work, shoot when it is blue. Avoid wasting your explosive rounds, attack the backside.
When he’s down shooting at the head will help you a lot. Nemesis boss will change his attack style, he will try to dodge your explosive rounds. Also, he will try to charge him, so be ready to run around. The worst attack is when he charges at full sped and grabs Jill’s head. This will eat a lot of health, so be prepared to dodge it. Finally, when you get a chance the generator will be active, shoot it and stun the boss.
Two shots at the generator, a lot of explosive rounds and shotgun firing will be required to defeat Nemesis boss in Resident Evil 3 Remake. I hope the tips in this guide will help you.
