Here is how to acquire the Nebula Handgun in Remnant 2, its attributes, and strategies that will help you maximize its potential.
Remnant 2 Nebula Handgun stats
The Nebula Handgun is no ordinary weapon; it is a masterpiece of destruction, capable of unleashing a relentless stream of superhot acid gas upon your foes. This acid gas inflicts the Corroded effect, dealing corrosive damage over time, and is accompanied by a remarkable mod called Nano Swarm.
The Nano Swarm mod deploys a swarm of nanomachines that relentlessly seek out and attack enemies within a 20-meter radius. Each Nanomachine deals 6 Acid Damage upon impact, enhancing the Nebula’s acid-infused capabilities. While this Mod cannot be removed or replaced, its synergy with the Nebula’s innate Corrosive effects is undeniable. Here are the detailed stats of Nebula:
Rounds Per Second (RPS): 8
Ideal Range: 8 meters
Fallout Range: 8 meters
Stagger Modifier: -15%
Max Ammo: 220
Crafting the Nebula Handgun in Remnant 2
You require specific materials to craft the coveted Nebula Handgun. Given below is a step-by-step guide on where to find these materials:
1. Spiced Bile: This rare and essential component is acquired by defeating the fearsome Tal Ratha, the final boss of the N’Erud world. Tal Ratha, resembling a colossal worm-like creature, resides within the daunting Forgotten Prison.
Note: You will be given two options when fighting Tal Ratha—either defeat the boss or get eaten by him. You need to defeat him in order to get Spiced Bile.
2. Lumenite Crystals: These common resources are attainable by vanquishing elite enemies or conquering bosses. They serve as a vital ingredient for both weapon upgrades and mod crafting.
3. Scrap (x650): The fundamental currency of Remnant 2, Scrap, is amassed through slaying enemies, unlocking chests, trading items, and utilizing scrap-boosting items.
Once in possession of the necessary materials, make your way to McCabe in Ward 13, where you will combine the Spiced Bile, Lumenite Crystals, and Scrap to forge the Nebula Handgun.
Harnessing the power of Nebula
When you equip the Nebula Handgun in Remnant 2, you can employ a multitude of combat strategies. While it may not excel in accuracy and range, its rapid-fire capability and acid damage can make it a formidable weapon. Here are some tips to fully utilize its potential:
1. Target weak points: To maximize your damage output, aim for the heads and weak points of your adversaries to score critical hits. This strategy is particularly effective in dealing significant damage.
2. Nano Swarm Mod: Use the Nano Swarm mod strategically to target and eliminate enemies who are taking cover or hiding out of sight. The nanomachines in this mod will actively locate and neutralize these threats.
3. Combo Potential: Take advantage of the Nebula’s potential by equipping traits that boost acid damage or increase mod power generation. This way, you can unleash powerful combos that exploit your enemies’ weaknesses.
4. Amplify Your Arsenal: Upgrade the Nebula Handgun by using Lumenite Crystals to increase its damage, magazine capacity and reload speed making it more effective as a weapon.
5. Synergy with Accessories: Equip gear and accessories that enhance acid damage, like the Acidic Regalia set or the Corrosive Loop ring to further boost the power of the Nebula.
Crafting the optimal Remnant 2 Nebula build
To maximize Nebula’s potential even further, you can consider this build:
Armor Set: High Noon Set
Amulet: Energized Neck Coil
Ring: Acid Stone
Dual Archetype: Medic
This build capitalizes on the Nebula’s close-range prowess while enhancing its acid-based damage output. The chosen armor, amulet, and ring synergize to amplify the acid-infused attacks, offering both offensive and defensive benefits. The Rampage skill further complements Nebula’s rapid-fire nature, enhancing Fire Rate, Movement Speed, and Reload Speed. With the Secret Nebula Handgun in your possession, enhance your firepower further with the Star Shot Handgun which is another formidable weapon in the game.
