Perks in Remnant 2 are the various Perks that provide passive effects to the player when equipped. Each Archetype Perk is locked behind a certain Archetype. They are split into five different groups depending on their function: Prime, Damage, Team, Utility, and Relic. Players will only be able to equip one Perk per Perk Type. This page contains a full list of Perks available in Remnant 2 as well as their effects.

 

Prime Perks

Found at the very center of the character screen, Prime Perks define the playstyle of your build.

This perk is dictated by the Archetype Item in the left slot and is the core identity of the Archetype and typically provides a benefit that no other Archetype or item can provide.

Damage Perks

Damage Perks improve the damage output of your character. This buff increases in effectiveness as you level up your character's Archetype.

One Archetype may gain a Ranged and Melee damage buff from their Damage Perk, while another may get a boost to Mod Power or even Skill Damage

Team Perks

Team Perks have effects that focus on providing buffs and other effects to your allies, the team in general, or yourself if playing alone.

A few of these are perks that grant increased ammo drops, shared healing, or even boost team defense. Each Team Perk is unique and provides a little extra "kick" to your gameplay, while also benefiting the team in a coop scenario.

Utility Perks

Utility Perks can be seen as "Quality of Life" perks. They provide small but helpful buffs that blend well with the rest of the Archetype’s gameplay elements.

The effects they provide include reduced stamina cost or increased movement when evading.

Relic Perks

Relic Perks are strong perks that grant temporary effects for a short duration upon using Relics. By consuming a Relic while having a Relic Perk equipped, you can trigger these buffs and effects to turn the tide of battle if you are caught in a difficult situation.

These Perks can be activated as long as you have charges on your Relics. There are different relic perks that focus on damage, support, and many more.

Remnant 2 Archetype Perk Mechanics

Unlocking new Perks

When you choose your starting Archetype, you'll be able to choose a Prime Perk associated with it. Not all Perks and Perk Types will be available from the get-go and you may need to progress through the game or level up your Archetype to unlock them. As you level up, your Perks will start unlocking one per level, and when you reach level 5, your Prime Perk, will unlock. From level 6 to 10, this process starts over, and every Perk gets enhanced.

For example, in the Gunslinger Archetype it will be like this:

  1. Swift Shot (Damage Perk)
  2. Posse Up (Team Perk)
  3. Quick Hands (Utility Perk)
  4. Sleight of Hand (Relic Perk)
  5. Loaded (Prime Perk)

 

Levelling Up Perks

Similar to Traits in Remnant: From the Ashes, you will be able to upgrade your Perks using certain types of skill points. It is likely that you will be able to earn these points by progressing and levelling up your character. This section will be updated once more is known about levelling up Perks.
