Skills in Remnant 2 are active abilities that can be used during combat. Each Archetype Skill is locked behind a certain Archetype. Only one Archetype Skill can be equipped at a time, but players may freely swap between the three skills available to them. This page contains a full list of Skills available in Remnant 2, as well as their effects.

 

Loadouts in Remnant 2 - New!

Loadouts are a new feature added with the patch released on October 27th. This allows players to create a gear preset and then recall it with a single button press, reducing the whole process to mere seconds. This includes WeaponsModsMutatorsArchetypesSkillsRelics, Fragments, etc. Loadouts will also save and recall Traits, but will only recall them if you have the Orb of Undoing in your inventory.

Loadouts cannot be used in combat.

Remnant 2 Archetype Skill Mechanics

Equipping Skills in Remnant 2

When you choose your starting Archetype, you will have one Skill available to you. The other two Skills will be unlocked as you level your Archetype. Of the three available Skills each Archetype has, only one can be equipped per Archetype at any given time. You can, however, swap between the three Skill freely at no cost while out of combat.

gunslinger skills archetypes remnant 2 wiki guide 85px

Using Skills in Remnant 2

Whereas Weapon Mods require you to defeat enemies in order to recharge their special abilities, Skills in Remnant 2 will work on a cooldown; after using a skill, you will have to wait a certain period of time before using it again. These cooldowns can be long, so timing will be essential when using them.

      I wonder it that if power level could make a difference to skill dmg(like higher dps or total dmg in 20 power level than 8 with all the SAME equipments and classes level).
      For example, I have a charactar with both level 10 Archon and Gunslinger, equipped with all +0 weapons. Now I have power level 8.
      Then I choose 3 weapons (unequipped) and strengthen them to MAX level. And now I have power level 20.
      Is there any skill dmg improvement in this case?
