Remnant 2 New Archetype Classes
Lock and load! When it’s time to bring GUNS to a gunfight, it’s time for the Gunslinger. They’re the master of High Fire Rate, Weapon Handling, and Ammo Efficiency.
The Gunslinger in Remnant 2 is the first new archetype that was announced. The Gunslinger is a master at a high fire rate, weapon handling, and ammo efficiency, the sole role of a Gunslinger is pure damage. As a Gunslinger, players must prioritize customizing the value of their DPS and unlocking bonuses such as quick reloads, swapping of weapons, and more.
The Gunslinger is unique in maintaining a flow of damaging enemies with the help of the Loaded perk, by activating any Gunslinger ability, this perk triggers, automatically reloading both weapons that are equipped. The Gunslinger also has various traits like Ammo Boost that increases total ammo capacity — if you prefer to play aggressively and to constantly pressure your enemies, the Gunslinger in Remnant 2 is your best pick.
A support class in Remnant 2 that will make combat and exploration better with the help of your trusty companion, a trained and extremely handy canine.
If you prefer to play solo in Remnant 2, you may want to pick up The Handler Archetype since this class comes with a trained canine. This archetype was revealed by the developer Gunfire Games who shared that the Handler won’t be going it alone. Accompanying the Handler is a dog who will join players in fights, so they won’t be alone even when playing solo. Lead designer Ben Cureton shared in an article with IGN that the idea behind this new archetype so that if you’re planning to play the game in single-player, you still have a fighting chance and it’s just as practical when teaming up in a group.
This canine friend has three modes to utilize. Guard will make it howl to draw aggro from enemies, Support to heal the player and allies in the group. Finally, in Attack mode, the dog will go on the offensive with a damaging focus. In order to keep track of the dog’s mode, the bandana it wears around its neck will change color depending on the mode. You can also order the dog’s location using a ping system.
If you find yourself on the brink of death and have a Dragon Heart potion on you, your doggo can revive you, letting you continue your fight. This companion sounds like a handy one to have around, especially when playing without teammates. A revival pup sounds like a great addition to keep you in the game when there aren’t allies around.
Remnant 2 New Archetype Systems
Remnant 2 features a brand-new Archetype System, where your starting choice of Archetype matters. In the first game, Remnant: From the Ashes, choosing an Archetype or Class served as an initial gear loadout for the player, and its purpose is to provide a solid starting class based on some different playstyles. And as you play and progress, all aspects eventually become available to every archetype you initially chose.
In Remnant 2, choosing a starting Archetype still provides the player with a pre-set of gear loadout that consists of their trademark armor sets, three unique weapons, and a signature Archetype Trait, additionally, players are now given Archetype Perks and Archetype Skills which can be further unlocked and improved by gaining experience and leveling up. Remnant 2 basically features an independent progression for each Archetype.
What are Archetype Perks in Remnant 2?
Archetype Perks in Remnant 2 are divided into 5 categories: Prime, Damage, Team, Utility, and Relic. Prime Perks are the core talents of each Archetype, these Prime Perks only benefit a particular archetype that no other perk or item can provide. Damage Perks are perks that scale the damage output of your character and gain effectiveness as you level up the 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 focuses on providing buffs and other effects to your allies or the team in general. It is also effective if you play 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 or the "Quality of Life" perk, a small buff that blends well with the rest of the Archetype’s gameplay elements, these perks provide effects such as reduced stamina cost or increased movement when evading.
Relic Perks are strong perks that grant temporary effects for a short duration upon using Relics. By consuming a relic item while having a relic perk equipped, you can trigger these buffs and effects that can turn the tide of battle to your favor if you are caught in a difficult situation. There are different relic perks that focus on damage, support, and many more. As you gain more experience, your Archetype Perks will become more powerful by leveling them up.
What are Archetype Skills in Remnant 2?
Archetype Skills in Remnant 2 are special active abilities that are unique to each archetype, meaning each Archetype will now have a set of skills that players can now unlock and upgrade. In Remnant from the Ashes, the game featured Weapon Mods that allowed players to equip and swap different modifications that alter the effects and skills of the weapon. Archetype Skills cannot be shared between Archetypes, if you want to use that special healing Archetype Skill, you’ll have to use the Archetype it’s attached to.
Archetype Skills in Remnant 2 just like in any other game, operate on a cooldown as opposed to the Mod Power Buildup of Weapon Mods. So when in battle, you now need to think and use them at the right moment. With the addition of skills, Weapon Mods will still be essential and it is available in Remnant 2. Each Archetype has 3 Skills to choose from, while each Archetype can only slot 1 Archetype Skill at a time, you may freely switch between unlocked Skills when out of combat at no cost.
What are Archetype Traits in Remnant 2?
Archetype Traits in Remnant 2 will play a much more important role when it comes to the RPG mechanic of the game, Remnant 2 now alters the traits that were prominent in the first game, whereas in Remnant 2, Archetype Traits are now locked to that specific Archetype. Apart from that, new features are being added as well, as you Level Up your Archetype, you automatically gain +1 into that Trait. You don’t have to spend any of your hard-earned points, Total Trait Points are now limited.
Players who played Remnant From the Ashes can no longer have every Trait maxed out, but instead, they have to decide what Traits to upgrade. Apart from that, when your Archetype reaches maximum level, the Archetype Trait is unlocked and can be used for any of the builds that you've created, the only problem is that if it’s used in a build that it doesn’t belong to, you’ll have to spend your Trait Points on it.
Can I Unlock other Archetypes?
Remnant 2 sticks to its roots when it comes to the Archetypes, some of you may wonder, “Am I locked into my starting Archetype?” and the answer to that is no. Choosing your Archetype at the beginning only determines your starting playstyle, but as you progress and play the game you can build a character that reflects your personal play style. In Remnant, you can change your Weapons, your Armor, Mods, Rings, and more, so it should be no surprise you can also change your Archetype. You just need to play to earn it.
What this means is that even if you pick an Archetype at the start, you can still unlock all the other Starting Archetypes and you don't even need to start a new game to use them. As soon as you unlock another Archetype, you can switch to it. Just keep playing and simultaneously level up your secondary Archetype to reap the benefits of their Perks, Skills, and Archetype Traits. This is where Dual Archetypes are introduced in Remnant 2.
As Gearbox Publishing says: "Two at the same time. Double Perks, Double Skills, Double Traits." Along your journey, you will eventually unlock the ability to combine any two of your Archetypes to create a “Class”. Each Archetype will have all its Perks, all its Skills, and both of its Traits represented within a Class, except for its Prime Perk. Depending on which Archetype is in the first slot, their Prime Perk will be activated. The Archetype in the second slot will not have access to their Prime Perk. Archetypes in the Prime slot will have added benefits to their Skills. Things like increased effectiveness, additional charges, shorter cooldowns, etc.

The Root in Remnant 1
For nearly a millennium, an unknown race called The Root traveled from one realm to another to wreak destruction and conquer everything and everyone it comes to contact with.

Eventually, they were able to conquer Rhom, but the states of Rhom came together which included The Basha and their spiritual leader The Nui, stood their ground and did what they can to fight The Root.
At the brink of losing the war, Ezlan, a mysterious Basha was forced to pick a tragic decision of either falling into the hands of The Root or to save their realm by decimating both its people and The Root. Despite having no other options, the choice was very much clear... In order to save their civilzation and for the next centuries to come, The Nui and The Basha activated a nuclear device which obliterated the people of Rhom and The Root.
This caused the surviving Root to abandon Rhom and tried to search for another realm to conquer... Where they found and invaded Earth. For quite a long time, Earth has been thrown into destruction where The Root has annihilated almost half of humanity and has almost fully taken control of the planet.
Despite the carnage, humankind has not given up with reclaiming what's theirs. Multiple facilities called a "Ward" with designated numbers was then built across the planet, but Ward 13 is the sole facility which houses a technology they've acquired and experiments on called a World Stone. A small piece of the World Stone was then sent to each ward for further studies. With the World Stone, the surviving humans have discovered that the World Stone can open up portals to other realms.
This lead to the attention of The Root who wishes to stop the humans from using the world stone to travel to different realms and to stop their mission from finding the source that can possibly destroy The Root.
