Remnant 2 is my favorite game so far this year. I've always had a soft spot for games like Dark Souls, Elden Ring, Surge, and others. This time around, Gunfire games introduces guns and laser beams into the equation. Melee is still and option, but you'll spend the majority of your boss-killing wielding some of the most original weapons since Doom.
Playing solo or coop, it doesn't matter. Remnant 2 features some of the best experiences to be had this summer in a video game. Come check it out and read our guide below on how best to conquer these worlds.
NPC Guide: Meidre
The Dappled Glade is a simple extension of the Forbidden Grove, or at least it was for me, I've also spotted it in the Faithless Thicket during coop. Regardless, you'll come across her in your travels somewhere in Yaesha. The highlight of the area being Meidra. She can be found phasing out of an enormous purple willow. She'll speak to you and give you a quiz that adds a corresponding trait depending on your answers.
Answer in a more devilish tone if you wish to obtain the Bloodstream trait, which increases grey health regen by 0.3 per second with each level. Give responses that are more of divine variety, and you receive Barkskin. This gives 1% damage reduction per level, up to a total of 10%. Arguably, to me, the slightly better trait to obtain.
Check out the table below if you want to be 100% sure of your answers.

Weapon Guide: Sorrow
You may or may not already have the Tear of Kaeula, a ring from Kaeula's Rest. If you do, you have an opportunity to trade it for Sorrow, a five-shot crossbow with the built in weapon mod called Eulogy. This mod allows the user to recall bolts that deal a base 30 damage to enemies when being pulled from, as well as when striking enemies on the way back. Any additional bolts over 5 (the maximum capacity) will be issued to reserves. Every bolt returned also grants 2% health to the user. Not bad!
To obtain the tear, check out our Kaeula's Rest guide. As well as some of our others below!
