Ancient Construct is a Boss in Remnant: From the Ashes

Ancient Construct Location

  • Location: Rhom, outside Wud's shop. 
  • In order to activate the Ancient Construct you have to acquire the Control Rod by killing Maul with a specific strategy.
    • During the fight break the Houndmaster's "horn", a couple of shots or a shotgun blast will suffice. When it starts to glow, the Control Rod should be visible. Maul will then attack its master.
    • If you die the Houndmaster will not respawn and you will receive the Control Rod when Maul is defeated, provided that the device has been broken before.
  • Return to Wud's shop and place the Control Rod into the chest of the Vyr automaton to activate it. This begins a boss fight against the Ancient Construct. 
  • NOTE: You must have Houndmaster and Wud's shop in the same map to be able to activate the Ancient Construct.
  • You cannot keep the Control Rod. It will be removed from your inventory when you re-roll the world.

      someone should add you can break his AI pretty easily, stick close to his right side and he will just keep turning and won't attack, timing on running around him is very generous too

        Just a normal Vyr with more hp and a boss trait. Unless you get the Magic explosions you shouldn't have any problems killing it.

          Pretty easy kill on nightmare. I used radiant with beam rifle+swarm after spawning 2 tentacles using curse of the jungle next to him. The combo of shock explosions, swarm, and beam crits killed him within one magazine of beam rifle.
