Remnant 2: Top 3 Best Class [Stats & Perks]

Heres the detail of what classes are the best in each category for all new Remnant 2.

Best Remnant 2 Classes
Remnant 2 Best Classes

There are a total of 9 classes in Remnant 2. These include Alchemist, Challenger, Explorer, Gunslinger, Handler, Hunter, Medic, Summoner, and Engineer (types are also called archetypes). During my playthrough, I was able to cycle through most of these Archetypes and realized that I preferred some classes over others.

Key Takeaways

  • Each class has a prime perk, four regular perks, and three skills.
  • There are two level upgrades. For prime perks, one is at level 5 and the other at level 10.
  • The Explorer class is considered the worst due to its underwhelming performance in finding loot and lack of significant impact in late-game scenarios.
  • The Medic class is the best support class, providing essential utility and healing capabilities, making it valuable in co-op and solo gameplay.
  • Gunslinger is the best solo class, excelling in sustained ammo and mid-range DPS, making it ideal for duels and shooting-oriented gameplay.

Even more, All classes have three skills each, and only one of them can be equipped at a time. It is also to be noted that even though selecting classes early on is essential, you can change the class later in the game. Nonetheless, now we will classify each class as a particular best category in this article.

Souls-like are Shahzar’s favorite genre in video games. He has invested several hundred hours playing the likes of Dark Souls and Bloodborne. During his 50-plus hours with this game, he went through all of the available classes in the game and considers the ones given below to be some of the best in the game.

Medic – Support Class

I recommend Medic to people who mainly experience this game with friends. If you are a team player, then Medic is the class for you as it provides excellent utility combined with what we would say is essential for every team. 

Furthermore, medics also have to manage micro-management. During my playthrough, I selected the Medic as my second archetype, which proved an excellent decision for the end game.

To unlock the medic as the second Archetype, you must make the Engram “Caduceus Idol,” which can be done by buying the Medic pin from Dr. Norah.  The trait of the Medic class is “triage,” which increases the health regeneration capabilities of various weapon modifications.

Prime Perk

Prime Perk for Medic
Prime Perk: “Regenerator”

From my experience, the prime perk of Medic is one of the best in the game. This perk gives a bonus relic charge once you have healed your teammates by 350. Resting or Respawning at a Worldstone resets healing accumulation. The healing needed is increased by 50% for each new player.

The upgrade of this perk is at levels 5 and 10. The stats required to get the relic charge are reduced to 300 and 250, respective to levels 5 and 10. This prime perk is overpowered if used correctly, making it the best class in the game.

Perks and Trait

Perk Name Damage Perk Team Perk Utility Perk Relic Perk
Unlocked and Upgraded at which level Unlocked at level 1 and upgraded at level 6. Unlocked at level 2 and upgraded at level 7 Unlocked at level 3 and upgraded at level 8. Unlocked at level 4 and upgraded at level 9.
Perk description when unlocked increases All Damage by 2.5% rises as the medic level does 15% more Relic Efficacy is gained, and 30% of the overall healing value is distributed to surrounding allies as healing. It gives the Medic one more hit before losing Grey Health. 20% increase in Relic Use Speed
Numbers on perks when upgraded Grants a 2.5% increase to All Damage and 5%. Relic efficacy is increased by 15%, and adjacent allies are healed for 30% of the total healing value (which increases to 60% for teammates with less than 35% overall health). Medic can take two more hits before their grey health is lost. Increases 20% faster Relic Use Speed. Gains from Relic Use: -1 Stagger

Here is the trait scaling of the class.

  • Level 1:Increases healing by 5%.
  • Level 2:Increases healing by 10%.
  • Level 3:Increases healing by 15%.
  • Level 4:Increases healing by 20%.
  • Level 5 increases healing by 25%.
  • Level 6:Increases healing by 30%.
  • Level 7:Increases healing by 35%.
  • Level 8:Increases healing by 40%
  • Level 9:Increases healing by 45%.
  • Level 10:Increases are healing by 50%.


Skill Name Wellspring Healing Shield Redemption
Unlocked at Unlocked with the Class Level 5 Level 10
Cool down 57.6s 96s 115.2s
Ability description The medic concentrates healing energy into their fist, striking a hole in the ground to create a 3m Healing Spring AOE that drastically speeds up blight decay rate and restores 10.5 health per second. 15 seconds. Allies within 25 meters of the Medic are quickly shielded for 10 seconds at 100% of their maximum health. Allies regain 21% of their total health while shielded. The Medic’s “Redemption” skill unleashes a 30m shockwave, reviving allies and healing 52.5% max health over 10s. Holding the button longer (up to 4s) boosts healing up to 210%. Revived allies get 50% healing and can’t be revived again for 180s (reset on Wordstone or death).

Even though the class category has very few rivalries, it is still one of the top three classes in the game as it provides a necessity for each team. I found this class very easy and intuitive to play, and it allowed me to support significantly my companions in the game. 

Gunslinger – Shooter

Best Shooter Class in Remnant 2
Gunslinger Icon

I recommend the Gunslinger class to the players who enjoy shooting out of any situation. Moreover, I consider this class a great choice if you are experiencing this game alone. Gunslinger is a DPS class focusing on sustaining ammo while doing as much damage in mid-range.

Skills that make reloading and fire rate faster make this the best class regarding shooting.

Prime Perk

Prime Perk Of Gunslinger
Prime Perk: “Loaded”

The prime perk of Gunslinger is “Loaded,” when activated, all guns are reloaded by using a skill, and you get infinite ammo for five seconds. On level 5, the timer increases to 6.5; on level 10, the timer increases to 8. 

Perks and Trait

Perk Name Swift Shot Posse Up Quick Hands Sleight of Hand
Unlocked and Upgraded at which level Unlocked at level 1 and upgraded at level 6. Unlocked at level 2 and upgraded at level 7 Unlocked at level 3 and upgraded at level 8. Unlocked at level 4 and upgraded at level 9.

Numbers on perk when upgraded Gain 15% Fire Rate and 5% Ranged Damage. Ammo drop awards 30% additional Ammo per player, with the bonus split equally among teammates. It causes the Ammo Box to drop other ammo on the ground. Firearms gain 10% Reload Speed. The bonus is doubled if the magazine is empty. Using a Relic reloads equipped Firearm and increases Ranged Damage by 15% for 10s.

Here is the trait of a Gunslinger

  • Level 1:+5% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 2:+10% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 3:+15% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 4:+20% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 5:+25% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 6:+30% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 7:+35% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 8:+40% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 9:+45% Ammo Boost.
  • Level 10:+50% Ammo Boost.


Skill Name Quick Draw Sidewinder Redemption
Unlocked at Unlocked with the Class  Level 5  Level 10
Cool down 38.4s 76.8s 57.6s
Ability description The “Trusted Side Piece” fires up to six Critical Shots from the hip, dealing double the stagger value and 35 base damage per shot. Pressing the trigger automatically fires at any enemy within 25 meters of view, distributing rounds equally among targets. Holding and releasing the trigger allows for manual aiming and releases a single, strong shot. The power of the Desert Sidewinder increases ADS Movement Speed and Draw/Swap Speed by 50%. It automatically reloads incoming Firearms during weapon cycling and lasts for 12 seconds. The Gunslinger’s Full Strength unleashes increased Fire Rate (20%) and Reload Speed (50%) for all ranged weapons. Single-shot weapons switch to full auto with instant reloads. Bows and Crossbows gain a 15% increase in critical chance and 50% projectile speed. Lasts for twenty seconds.

The game’s central aspect uses shooting, and other classes optimize shooting in various ranges, but for consistency and longevity in duels, Gunslinger is the best.

One of my favorite things about this class is the unique skill that automatically reloads your weapons in the holster. This was handy during my fights with tanky bosses, where I always needed an entire magazine.


Worst Remnant 2 class
Explorer Icon

I recommend the Explorer class to players who want to explore the world more efficiently while gathering as much loot as possible. Explorer is an archetype/class in Remnant 2 that focuses on finding loot and maintaining utility. 

The explorer archetype is unlockable by crafting the Golden Compass. However, I could only unlock this class after defeating the final boss in the game. The boss can be found in the main story at Root Earth. 

One of my favorite traits is from this class, which allows players to have more incredible movement speeds. This significant buff to the speed helped me avoid many attacks and go through large map sections reasonably quickly. However, I was disappointed that this might be this class’s only helpful trait.

The initial armor and weapon are among the few things appealing in numbers about the class. Thus, it is as low-ranked as it is. However, we want to give credit where credit is due, as Remnant 2 has balanced the class system. Moreover, using the explorer as my second Archetype was more helpful.

Prime Perk

Prime Perk Lucky
Prime Perk: “Lucky”

The Prime perk of the Explorer class is “Lucky.” Moreover, Lucky gives a chance to get a rare item when defeating a more potent enemy (case of 10%).

As for the two upgrades each Prime Perk has at level 5 and level 10. “Lucky” increases the chance to 20% at level 5 and 35% at level 10. 

Perks and Trait

Perk Name Scavenger Metal Detector Relic Perk Self Discovery
Unlocked and Upgraded level Unlocked at level 1 and upgraded at level 6. Unlocked at level 2 and upgraded at level 7 Unlocked at level 3 and upgraded at level 8. Unlocked at level 4 and upgraded at level 9.
Perk description when unlocked For 15 seconds, pickups enhance All Damage Dealt by 0.5% in each stack. Additional piles lengthen the duration up to 60s. There are five maximum stacks. Increase the chance of finding ammunition, currency, and metal for the entire group by 10%. When an Explorer finds a relic Fragment in the game, the chance he gets a rarer item is higher. Utilizing a Relic immediately replenishes Scavenger Stacks and stops Stack Decay for 15 seconds.
Numbers on perk when upgraded At upgrade, the Scavenger raises the All Crit Chance by 5% while active. Prospector enhances the likelihood that chests may reward you with consumables at upgrade. Explorer has a 5% chance of picking up a second gem of the same type or quality after picking up one. Self Discovery gets +30 stack after using a relic and is shielded from stack decay for one second.

Here is the trait of Explorer’s scaling 

  • Level 1:+1% Movement Speed.
  • Level 2:+2% Movement Speed.
  • Level 3:+3% Movement Speed.
  • Level 4:+5% Movement Speed.
  • Level 5:+6% Movement Speed.
  • Level 6:+7% Movement Speed.
  • Level 7:+10% Movement Speed.
  • Level 8:+11% Movement Speed.
  • Level 9:+12% Movement Speed.
  • Level 10:+15% Movement Speed.


Skill Name Planeswalker Gold Digger Fortune Hunter
Unlocked at Unlocked with the Class Level 5 Level 10
Cool down 58.8s 44.1s 88.2s
Ability description 20% more movement speed and an 80% stamina cost reduction for friends. 30 seconds long Dig into the ground to release a fountain that bestows a random bonus. Both fountains and their buffs have a 45-second lifespan.
A fountain may offer 10% more damage, 15% less damage, 1.5 seconds of health regeneration, or HASTE.
Increases the Explorer’s treasure sense to reveal special items within 40m for all allies. Lasts 60 seconds.

The Explorer class is so low because the entertainment aspect of the class is limited to only the trait (swiftness) they have, which can only be fully potent in the late game.

However, I would argue at that point of the game, the primary use of Explorer has already been ventured, which is getting loot. It might accelerate the process of getting loot; however, that being the main selling point of the class leaves something to desire.

My Opinion On Best Class

I believe the Medic is the best-supporting class in the game, with some very dependable skills. Gunslinger is for players who only want to shoot their way through the campaign, and this is why this class excels at sustaining ammo and mid-range DPS for solo play.

Nevertheless, if players want to try another class, I recommend they should. All classes are very well-built and require careful consideration from the players.

That is all we have in the best class. Share your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.
