As you navigate the forests of Yaesha in Remnant 2, you’ll come across The Chimney dungeon. While this dungeon doesn’t have a boss, there is a very annoying death trap waiting for you at the end. Let’s see how to clear the Crystal Elevator found inside The Chimney in Remnant 2.

You can clear the Crystal Elevator in The Chimney by activating the lever at the top and then running downstairs from the right.

Don’t go too fast, or you’ll hit the electric layer at the bottom. Destroy all the purple crystals to stop current conduction and avoid enemies. Shoot the root saps to free the elevator and keep running in both layers’ middle.

You might fail this bit a few times. So, let’s take a detailed look at the best way to clear this Crystal Elevator trap in Remnant 2.

Clearing The Crystal Elevator in Remnant 2

The Chimney in Yaesha

Once you’ve reached The Chimney dungeon and fought your way through to the end, you’ll come across a massive room. There is a giant purple crystal inside an elevator in the middle and a staircase spiraling down.

You can’t go down because there is a deadly electric layer just below you. Touching it means instant death. You’ll need to activate the elevator so the Crystal moves down, and then you must go down with it. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? Well…it isn’t.

When you start the elevator by pushing the lever at the top, a second electric layer appears above you, sandwiching you between the upper and lower layers. Move too fast, and you’ll touch the bottom layer. Move too slowly, and the upper layer will catch up and fry you. Let us walk you through the whole ordeal.

Stick to the Right Staircase

Start Going Right
Start Running Downstairs from the Right Side

As soon as you pull the lever, both layers will be activated, you’ll be sandwiched, and the chase will start. You need to start going downstairs by taking the staircase on the right side.

Enemies will start to come out of the coffins in the walls. But that’s not the only issue here. You’ll also spot some conspicuous-looking crystals on the walls.

Destroy the Crystals

Shoot the Crystal before it Conducts any Electricity

You might try to run and dodge past these crystals, but you will run out of stamina eventually. These crystals conduct electricity from the upper electric layer and damage/stagger you.

The current damages and slows you down. So, the best way to deal with them is to shoot & break them from afar. Make sure you use weapons with bigger magazines to avoid frequent reloading.

Don’t forget; an insta-kill electric layer is chasing you. So, you need to be quick on your feet and avoid as many enemies as you can. After a while, you will reach the room’s midpoint, with some roots in the middle stopping the crystal elevator’s descent.

Destroy the Root Saps

Shoot all 3 Root Saps in the middle to free the elevator.

Once you destroy all three Root Saps, a hole will open in the floor to your left. Jump down, cross the root bridge, and start running between the layers again. The Crystal elevator will start moving again as well.

You might notice a Purple Item dot on your minimap. But ignore it for now, as we’ll return for it later. The enemy types and their spawns will increase the further downward you go.

Reach the Bottom

Tough it out, and reach the room’s base while destroying all purple crystals along the way. Once you get to the bottom, use your turrets if you have the Engineer Archetype unlocked to hold off enemies.

You can then destroy all the remaining crystals and shoot the Root Saps at the bottom of the shaft to clear the way for the elevator. The upper electric layer will disappear as soon as the giant Crystal elevator reaches the bottom.

And now you can collect the Heart Seed (used to craft the Soulbinder weapon mod) by touching the giant Crystal. You can also go back to collect the hidden purple item in The Chimney. There you have it, folks, that’s how you clear the Crystal elevator in Remnant 2.
