Remnant 2 – All Archetype Class Guide (Updated)

Remnant 2 is the sequel to the original, Remnant: From The Ashes by Gunfire Games. In Remnant 2 you’ll still be facing off against deadly creatures and god-like bosses but in this new iteration, a few things have changed. Archetypes or a type of hero class is something that’s brought over from the previous game but they now work quite differently from what you might be used to. This time what Archetype you select will have a bigger impact than it did from the previous game.

In Remnant 2 they’ll have nine Archetypes for you to choose from – Gunslinger, Hunter, Challenger, Handler, Medic, Engineer, Summoner, Alchemist and Explorer. This is an important choice that will see the way you and/or your team plays. These classes come with their starting weapons and have a set of fixed abilities that will unlock as you rank up.

Towards the later/mid-point of the game, you’ll be able to add on an additional secondary Archetype. When you have this you’ll be able to receive all the Skills, Perks and traits of that secondary class, minus the Prime Perk. That’s something that will stay exclusive to the first Archetype you’ll equip.

In this guide, we’ll go through everything you need to know about each Archetype in Remnant 2 so that you can choose which of them fits your gameplay style.


Remnant 2 Archetypes

Choosing which Archetype is the right one for you in Remnant 2 is a personal choice that could be dependent on your playstyle, skill level and even overall group dynamics. I’d say that so far the Hunter and the Challenger have a fairly high skill ceiling and are not a great first pick for the uninitiated.

For beginner-level players or those playing solo, your best Archetypes to go with are the Handler and Gunslinger. The Medic is an excellent support for group play as well and should be easy for beginner-level play.

The Gunslinger is your solid all-around DPS character that’s focused on damage output. They enjoy peppering the field with bullets and thankfully have a solid Ammo Reserves Trait to back them up. They have much more ammo than any other class and their perk also helps their teammates with Ammo management.

Choose to play a Gunslinger if you enjoy a faster play style and prefer to prioritise high attack speeds over the damage. It’s a useful Archetype for both co-op and solo play.

As you might guess this class focuses on skills and perks for close combat. For those of you that are comfortable with this playstyle and want to take on Remnant 2 in another way then the Challenger Archetype is for you.

The Challenger is also a good tank-type option for those of you playing in a co-op party. It is a class that can be soloed but in order to be successful there is a certain skill ceiling for it.

Rusted Claws – Old canine training braces converted into claw Melee Weapons

The Handler Archetype has absolutely everything going for it. With a solid assault rifle and a rapid-fire automatic pistol, you can keep most standard enemies at bay all by yourself. The best thing about the Handler however is that you’ll have a strong dog companion at your side. More than just an emotional support animal however your furry buddy can distract enemies, deal solid damage, and even has a chance to revive you in combat.

Extremely useful for solo players taking on Remnant 2. But it is also an amazing Support-type Class for those of you playing in a team. And not to worry you can definitely pet the dog.

The Medic is focused on healing and support, whether alone or in groups. They specialize in survivability thanks to enhanced healing and Relic effectiveness. Essentially, a medic will just be able to heal more than any other class using the same items, so if you are like me and get hit a lot, this is for you.

As you probably expected, a Medic is only good when there are other people around to heal. If you’re going into tough fights with a Medic in your team, then you’ll have very little trouble taking it down as they can quickly revive teammates and keep you topped up. However, choosing it as a solo player may not as make as much sense.
