Remant 2 players will face off against this giant cube of evil at the end of their first visit to the Labyrinth world. Some of you might have found the boss during your hunt for Leto’s Stash in R2. Regardless, let’s take a look at a viable strategy for defeating the Labyrinth Sentinel in Remnant 2.
We’ll help you figure out how to move around the arena in this rather simple-looking but extremely frustrating boss fight. Once you get the strat down, dealing with the cube should take a minute or two tops.
Where to Find the Labyrinth Sentinel in Remnant 2?
The Labyrinth Sentinel can be found by unlocking the portal at the Fractured Ingress checkpoint in Remnant 2. You’ll have to explore the Labyrinth and find the key required to activate this portal.
You then need to go straight from the portal until you come across another checkpoint outside the boss arena.
The Boss Fight
This is not your typical phase-based boss fight. The Sentinel only has three moves:
- Blocks moving around on the ground (Can be avoided by memorizing patterns / ducked under by shooting the white crystals)
- Homing Projectiles (Slow – Easy to Dodge)
- Cube Hologram (Wide AoE – Damages you as long as you stay inside it)
Other than that, it’s more about navigating the arena and dodging the crushing blocks. You’ll damage and eventually kill the All-Evil Labyrinth Sentinel by destroying all the white crystals on each cube.
Navigating the Arena
Once the fight starts, your first order of business is to shoot all of the white crystals on all the blocks you see. Start with the one in front of you and memorize its movement pattern as well. Then shoot and memorize the one’s on your right.
You’ll notice that shooting the white crystals creates cavities in the cube’s surface. These cavities can be used to duck under the cube as it goes over you.
You’ll have to move around the arena and shoot crystals on all eight cubes. ( four in the air / four on the ground)
As the Sentinel’s HP depletes, the intensity of the homing and hologram attacks will ramp up. But this shouldn’t pose that much of a threat. You’ll most likely die by getting crushed under a cube. Not from those attacks.
Memorize cube rotation patterns, shoot white crystals, be patient, and dodge incoming attacks. That’s all you need to do to defeat the Labyrinth Sentinel in Remnant 2.

After a rather unpleasant crushing session for most players, they’ll get the following rewards:

- x6 Lumenite Crystal
- Scrap x1
- Tome of Knowledge x1 (Trait Point)

That concludes our strategy guide for beating The Labyrinth Sentinel in Remnant 2. Things will only get tougher from here, so make sure you are upgrading your Dragon Heart to increase your chances of survival.
