This is a walkthrough for fighting with the first form of Nemesis in Resident Evil (Remake). Here we will cover tips on dealing with Nemesis's 1st form, as well as the types of attacks he can use with his flamethrower. Additionally, we will show the changes between the original Nemesis and the Remake.
|List of Nemesis Battles||Nemesis 1st Form|
|Nemesis 2nd Form||Nemesis Final Form|
List of Contents
|Danger Level||Recommended Weapon||Weak Spot|
|Tentacle Attack||Tentacles come out and attack from a distance|
|Dash + Side Punch||Punches to its side while dashing|
|Roar||Attacks to the front with shock waves|
|Triple Punch||A series of three punches (left hook, right hook, left hook)|
|Grab + Stomp||
Happens when you are at low HP
Stomps your head and kills you
|Grab + Mid-Air Punch||Attacks you after grabbing you|
|Down Slam||Slams you forward with both hands|
|Heart Protector||Slams you forward with both hands|
|Sliding||Quickly moves out of the field of vision|
|Grab + Tentacle Implale||Stabs you in the stomach after grabbing you and causes insta-death.|
The thing that you need to look out for above all is Nemesis's left hook, right hook, left hook triple punch. If you get cornered into a wall or narrow space, you won't be able to dodge his attacks easily, making it very easy to get caught in this. If possible, try to stay in more open areas.
If Nemesis manages to grab you when you have low HP, there is a very high chance that you'll die. Make sure to use an herb or first aid spray to restore your HP if it gets into the orange or red.
|Flamethrower + Rush||Nemesis holds the flamethrower and charges
After charging, grabs you and deals massive damage
|Rotate + Flamethrower Attack||Shoots from the Flamethrower while spinning in a 360 circle|
|Flamethrower Mow Down||Faces forward and mows down everything with flames|
|Forward Flames||Fires forward in an arc shaped area at a mid distance|
|Explosion||Uses the flamethrower right in front of itself and makes a massive explosion|
|Flame Line Attack||Fires directly forward in a straight line|
|Shove||Uses the flamethrower to shove|
The attack you really need to look out for is the one where he holds the flamethrower and charges forward. When you see him holding back the flamethrower, he is gearing up for this attack, so do a Quick Turn and create some distance, or use a Perfect Dodge to avoid the attack.
Although the range of the attack is not all that big, the attack where Nemesis makes an explosion on the ground will deal a ton of damage if it hits you. The motion before he does this move is pretty fast, so it is hard to avoid, but it won't deal any damage if you keep out of its range, so the best advice is to keep your distance during the battle.
Aim for his head and heart!
Have some hand grenades ready beforehand!
Master using the Perfect Dodge
Don't let Nemesis out of your site
Like regular zombies, Nemesis's head is a weak spot, and in addition, so is its heart. Its heart is easy to target, but it will be guarded while it is making attacks, so if you don't have a clear shot, aim for a headshot.
If you throw a grenade right when the battle begins, you will be able to inflict damage to Nemesis and simultaneously take out the enemies that show up. Nemesis won't be knocked out completely, but it will stall him for a bit, so you should go for it.
If it gets too far away, Nemesis will attack with its tentacles or by sliding in quickly. To avoid this, you need to keep Nemesis in your sights. When you see tentacles coming out of his arms, the attack will begin, so do a Perfect Dodge when he extends them to move around without getting hit.
Every attack from Nemesis deals a lot of damage, so you have to make use of perfect dodges if you want to survive. You'll be rewarded with a counterattack each time you successfully pull one off, so try and get as many as you can.
Make sure your bullet hits when doing a counterattack after a perfect dodge!
Attack his gas cylinder while he flinches!
Stay away from burning areas as much as possible!
Finish him off after getting all of the items!
In the second battle with Nemesis, he will often dodge your attacks when you fire with the Grenade Launcher. You'll need to time your Perfect Dodges just right and use your counterattack to hit him with your grenade launcher. You won't have much time, so be sure not to miss!
Nemesis will flinch for a couple seconds when an attacks hits him, so you'll want toe aim for the gas cylinder on his back. Use a Grenade Launcer or Shotgun to hit it and deal heavy amounts of damage.
Since there is an electrocuter nearby, you should constantly use it to make him flinch.
If you enter areas that Nemesis set ablaze with the flame thrower, you'll take some damage. Also, when Jill flinches from the fire, you won't be able to Perfect Dodge, so you are better off staying away.
After defeating Nemesis heere, a cutscene will trigger, and you will move, after which you will be unable to return. Be sure and take all the items in the area before the battle ends if you want them.
Compared to Nemesis from the original, this one moves very quick, and can show up out of nowhere while you are trying to run away. In addition, he has several weapons in his arsenal now, such as his rocket launcher and flamethrower, so this game feels tougher than even RE2.
In the original, Nemesis's 1st Form would only attack with the rocket launcher, but in the remake, the 1st Form can also perform tentacle attacks. In the original, this was something that started with the 2nd Form.
|Resident Evil 3: Nemesis||RE3 (Remake)|
Compared to the original, Nemesis's face is a bit longer and skinnier, and his body is somewhat slimmer too. Despite this, he is possibly even stronger than before, and is still every bit as threatening.
|1st Form||2nd Form||Final Form|
