How to Defeat Mephisto in D2 Resurrected

Since Mephisto is immune to every physical attack, it is better to engage in a ranged fight against him instead of going face to face.

However, there is a simple trick that you can use against him to cheat the system. When the fight starts, make him chase you towards the Blood Moat.

Run to the edge of it and make sure the boss follows you there. Once the boss is on the edge of the Blood moat, run towards the open area that you went past at the start of the level.

In the open area, Mephisto will not be able to chase you there. Now, you can shoot arrows, cast spells, throw anything you have in your hand at him. He will be able to see you but cannot deal any damage to you.

Keep dealing damage to him and the fight will be over within two to three minutes. This is the best trick that most of the speedrunners use when fighting against Mephisto.

Mephisto gives players the best quality loot, which is the reason he is the favorite boss to fight against for most speedrunners.
