Phase 1: Dreamer
Aiming for the Dreamer's head is the best option as this is his weak spot. It is best to defeat the Dreamer as fast as possible as Roots will begin to spawn later in the fight. Using his attacks to damage the Root that spawn during his fight is an easy way to reduce their engagement.
Phase 2: Nightmare
At the beginning of the fight, Nightmare takes little damage. Save your ammo and avoid his attacks until you are transported into the Shadow Realm. Once there, kill enemies to gain a damage buff for each you kill. In the Shadow Realm, there is a portal that will bring you back into the main boss area. Once you have killed as many enemies as you can, leave through the portal. It's best to make your way to the portal and continue to fight near it just in case you need to leave quickly to avoid dying. The longer you stay in there the more damage you will take, so you'll have to judge carefully, but you will need a lot of stacks to deal decent damage. While in the Shadow Realm, it is recommended to use Bloodwort to somewhat negate the damage you are taking.
When playing multiplayer, only one player is transported at a time. The other player(s) stays in the arena with the boss. During this time, Roots will spawn and attack players left in the arena while the boss continues shooting barrages. Kill these Roots as quickly as possible so that they do not distract the player with the damage buff when they return. Be careful not to focus on one of these threats too much as the other can quickly deal a lot of damage. If you are one of the players left with the boss, be careful not to walk over where the transported player will come back to when they leave through the portal. If you are being targeted by the boss and run over where that player was, you can cause the player to be downed if you are unlucky with timing of the player returning.
Once you come out of the portal, focus your fire on the boss until it's chest opens up, exposing the Dreamer. Once this happens, he becomes a Weak Spot so aim for him to deal maximum damage. Failing to deal sufficient damage will result in Nightmare not opening up and removing the damage buff. Depending on how upgraded your Weapon is and what Traits you have, you may have repeat this process two or three times, though it is possible to do it in one. Be sure to have an Ammo Box or two, in case you need to replenish your ammo.
Attacks & Counters
|Volley||Dreamer will stop following you and fire into the air. Running can easily dodge the attack. or dodging just after he fires should give you enough distance to avoid all or most of the attack.|
|Spin||Dreamer will hover close to the ground and spin, damaging you if you stay within range. Keep your distance any time he moves down to the ground, spin can be ignored for the most part if you're keeping your distance.|
|Spin Slam||Dreamer will begin to add a slam after his spin when his health is low, the spin itself will pull you in. Dodging away, or running after the pull should keep you out of range of his slam. Be careful because he will also pull the root into him and they will still try to attack you.|
|Ground Slam||Dreamer will land on the ground, and slam his tentacles into the ground. He will do so twice, dodging just before the wave gets to you or running in a circle around him can usually avoid the attack. This attack works well for damaging the root that spawn frequently during the first phase.|
|Nightmare Volley||Nightmare will charge his wings and shoot a volley of energy. Keeping your distance makes this attack much easier to dodge because the missiles have a lot of travel time.|
|Nightmare Realm||Nightmare will pull you into a separate realm filled with darkness, and summon root to attack. Killing enemies during this phase is essential to finishing the fight, using bloodwort or other forms of healing over time items can make your stay in the Nightmare realm far easier and will allow you to gain more stacks before having to leave through the portal.|

- The Root used the Dreamer/Nightmare as a replacement for the original dreamer they were controlling and using as a gate to access Earth because he was stronger and practically groomed for the Roots ultimate plan which is corrupting the world's core (Earth) and the Labyrinth, therefore ending all resistance to them (Chronos events).
- The Dreamer/Nightmare killed the Krell, the Pan and the Labyrinth guardians (Chronos events).
- The Dreamer/Nightmare is called The Devourer by the Keeper of the Labyrinth because he killed the guardians.
