Tips & Tricks

There are many ways to maximize the effect of Haste in Remnant 2. One of the most basic methods of increasing Haste efficiency is choosing an archetype that extends the duration or generates Haste. Collect items with yellow lightning bolts from the ground or chest during your journey, as they are Haste items.

Many gears contain Haste as an active or passive effect, so equip the right one to enhance your Haste usage. Use skills that trigger or increase the duration of Haste. Combine Haste with other buffs like Focus, Vigor, or Adrenaline to enhance the effect.


Although Haste is a buff necessary for your exploration of dungeons, there are many limitations that you should look out for to avoid any unfavorable scenario. Some of these limitations are:

  • Haste makes a lot of noise, so it attracts a lot of enemies when used.
  • Using Haste depletes your stamina rapidly, so use it cautiously.
  • Haste has a 60-second cooldown, so use it accordingly to avoid getting in a pinch.
  • It is particularly ineffective against certain enemies as they have high resistance, fast attacks, or may be active in a dangerous environment.

Above, we have covered everything you might want about Haste in Remnant 2. While Haste is a potent buff in your adventures, it is also a double-edged sword with benefits and limitations. To get Haste, equip a relic that provides you with this buff.
