Remnant 2 is known to blend the medieval fantasy setting with modern combat. This is one of the main reasons the game has short-range melee weapons and long-range Guns. However, the game has many weapon choices for the players, and not all weapons are worth your time. Therefore, this guide will help you decide the best weapons in Remnant 2 and how to acquire them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Remnant 2 has some of the most diverse and best weapons collections.
  • These weapons range from close-range melee weapons to alien technology guns.
  • Moreover, players can always access all the weapons they wish to keep.
  • However, players can only equip one type of each weapon.
  • Some of these weapons, like MP60-R or the Bonesaw, can be acquired early in the game.
  • Although, most weapons can be obtained from crates or after defeating various bosses.
  • Most of the special alien weapons can be crafted after defeating specific bosses. 
  • Weapons like Enigma and the Gas Giant can produce significant passive area damage. 
  • It is best to try out weapons independently and create the build that suits your play style best.

Remnant 2 allows players to shuffle between a long-range gun, a handgun, and a melee weapon. Moreover, players are allowed to carry multiple weapons at the same time. However, these weapons require scraps for upgrades and mods that can further buff up the weapon. Therefore, knowing which weapon is worth the resources before spending them is better.

There are various ways to acquire weapons in Remnant 2. As a result, some guns are found in chests, and some weapons are dropped after defeating a boss. However, you can acquire some great weapons early on with little effort. Moreover, it is essential to maintain the right balance between your currently equipped melee weapons and guns.

The Enigma may be one of the best submachine guns in the game. This electrocuting SMG is made of stone and releases strong electrical currents whenever the trigger is pressed. Moreover, the Enigma is capable of electrocuting multiple enemies at once. The stream of electricity will bounce off and attach to enemies nearby.

Moreover, acquiring this weapon is also reasonably straightforward. However, you must first reach the Labyrinth as part of your campaign. Once at the Labyrinth, explore the area nearby until you see a teleporter that changes location. Therefore, jump inside the teleporter once you see an empty sky and a ledge. 

If you are lucky, you will probably get here right when the bridge is forming. You may need to take care of a few enemies at first. Therefore, collect your Cipher Rod and bring it back to Ward 13 to craft into the Enigma. As this is an SMG, it will only use handgun ammo commonly available in the game.

The MP60-R is another early-game weapon players can find. This fully automatic handgun can be acquired once players have unlocked Ward 13. Therefore, players must travel to this world and head on to Ford’s room, the older man you met at the start of the game. Ford’s room is next to the World Crystal and on top of the Weapon Upgrade shop.

However, once in Ford’s room, you will see a locked Red Chest in the corner. The Chest requires players to enter the combination 0415 to unlock the Chest finally. Within the Chest is a key that players can use to access a secret room and find the gun. Moreover, the secret room is located at the scrapyard, with all the Cargo Containers. You can learn more about it in detail from Remnant 2 Cargo Control Key guide.

The submachine gun is a trusty sidearm that is an excellent upgrade from your regular pistol. Moreover, the fully automatic allows players to unload many bullets within seconds.

Moreover, you can also attach the Hot Shot mutator to fire-burning bullets that cause bleed effect damage. You can also use iron and other resources to upgrade the weapon further. However, as this is a starting weapon, spending a tiny amount on upgrades is best. Moreover, it is better to sell the gun when you get a better weapon. 

This gun is pretty simple to acquire as this is a starting weapon for the Handler class. However, if you play in a different style, you can buy this gun for 1000 Scraps from the shop.

Furthermore, acquiring this weapon is straightforward. However, the item required to craft this weapon can only be found in the world of N’Erud.
