Unlike the Armor Perks in the first installment of the game, a Relic Fragment is a more flexible option to enhance players’ abilities and get the best out of various builds. Players can get these fragments by defeating different bosses or crafting them in Remnant 2.

Key Takeaways

  • Relic fragments improve your character’s stats and make your build more robust and resilient.
  • Players can find these fragments by defeating various bosses or looking for them in treasure chests. Players can also craft them using the Relic dust in Ward 13.
  • Depending on your progress and difficulty level in the game, you can find relic fragments of different rarity. For example, starting, you will probably come across Cracked Relic Fragments. If you have progressed to the middle of the game, Ordinary Relic Fragments will be very common loot. However, Solid Relic Fragments, the rarest of all, can only be found in the ending stages of the game.

What Is A Relic Fragment?

Relic Fragments are passive buffs that significantly boost your character’s stats and help you create your desired build. These are enhanced forms of Armor Perks from the prequel of the game, providing increased damage and considerably more stamina to survive longer in the game. 

Once I began paying attention to them, I would spend hours sorting relics and putting them on my Relic. Each fragment has its specified use of either healing, damage, or stamina.

Using Relic Fragments

There are various ways to find Relic Fragments. 

  • Defeating elite enemies and bosses will reward players with valuable items, including many of these Relic Fragments.
  • Treasure Chests are another great source of Relic Fragments in Remnant 2. Players can find many of these treasures around the N’erud map as yellow circles mark them.
  • You can also craft it using the Relic dust collected from the Dwell in Ward 13 and start crafting.

Color Types

The three types of relic fragments, separated based on their rarity, can be identified by their colors. Players can know which fragment is better by looking at its assigned number. It is straightforward, as a higher number means higher quality. The three different colors of Relic Fragments are:

  • Blue
  • Red
  • Yellow

My Thoughts

Relic Fragments might be the only things I had a hard time managing. During my 40+ hours of playthrough, I was able to collect a bit too many of these fragments to know what to do with them. As I progressed further, these Relics started to show their true potential.

Even though the buff they provide can seem insignificant, they can amplify other aspects of your build.
