Do you want to get the Remnant 2 Crescent Moon bow? This weapon is quite amazing not just because of its damage, but also because of its unique mod. Our guide discusses the Crescent Moon bow’s secret unlock method in Remnant 2, as well as what you can expect from the weapon itself.

How to Get the Crescent Moon Bow from Nimue in Remnant 2

To get the Crescent Moon bow, you need to find the Amamy’s Echo material and use it to craft the weapon. Be forewarned, however, that the steps can be quite a doozy:

  • Get the Dreamcatcher weapon — Make sure your the initial area in Losomn is Morrow Parish, and the main quest is for the Nightweaver. This lets you acquire the Dreamcatcher weapon.
  • Hit Nimue’s bracelet with the Dreamcatcher while she’s sleeping — Find Nimue’s Retreat in Losomn and make sure that she’s sleeping. This allows you to hit her bracelet with the Dreamcatcher.
  • Obtain the Amamy’s Echo material — Collect Nimue’s Dream, and use it to get transported to an area where you’ll find the Amamy’s Echo material.

How to Get the Dreamcatcher

The process to get the Remnant 2 Dreamcatcher weapon is quite specific. First, I made sure that I got Losomn — Morrow Parish and the Nightweaver quest. Upon reaching Morrow Sanatorium, I collected the three Stone-carved Dolls and gave them to the lady in the basement cell before opening the door. Once I opened the door, I collected the Nightweaver Stone Doll.

Further onward, after beating Magister Dullain, I was able to use the Soulkey Tribute item on the large cobwebs in the basement. This transported me to the dream world, where the cell next to the woman’s room had more webs. I placed the Nightweaver’s Stone Doll in the small room’s webs and got the Dreamcatcher weapon.

How to Make Nimue Sleep to Get Nimue’s Dream

The next step if you want the Remnant 2 Crescent Moon is to head to Nimue’s Retreat. It’s a separate zone located in Losomn. In my playthrough, I found a doorway that leads to it in Morrow Sanatorium.

More often than not, Nimue is usually standing upright (from the chest up) and looking directly down at you. However, there are instances when she’s sleeping, and it’s random whether she’s awake or asleep. I simply fast-traveled back and forth until I saw that she was sleeping, and other players I know have confirmed that’s worked for them. We didn’t have to crouch or perform specific actions outside of fast traveling into and out of the area.

Once you see that Nimue is sleeping, run up to her and hit her bracelet with the Dreamcatcher. Rather than doing an attack animation, a glow will materialize instead. This nets you the Nimue’s Dream item.

Open your inventory and assign Nimue’s Dream to an item hotkey so you can use it. This transports you to a place called Retreat’s Horizon. In the distance, you’ll notice a blue glow. That’s Amamy’s Dream, an important material you’ll want to grab for later.

Reward: Crescent Moon Bow

Return to Ward 13 and craft the Crescent Moon using the Amamy’s Dream item. The Crescent Moon stats are:

  • Damage: 87
  • RPS: 4.1
  • Magazine: 1
  • Unique mod: Moonlight Barrage – Empowers the bow for 15 seconds, causing arrows to apply the Moonlight effect for three seconds. Affected enemies hit by Crescent Moon release an essence that returns the arrow, heals 5% of max HP, and grants +15% firing and reload speed for five seconds. Moreover, basic shots automatically become charged shots, and manually charged shots fire two arrows.
