How To Get The Hero Sword in Remnant 2? 

The Hero Sword is one of the highest damage dealing weapons in Remnant 2 and also a reference to the Zelda games. Here's how to get it.

The Hero’s Sword is a powerful melee weapon in Remnant 2, known for its exceptional damage output and unique combat ability. This mighty blade gives a 51 base damage rating, making it a reliable choice for close-quarter combats. However, the sword offers a hidden gem beyond its raw power – a built-in weapon mod called “Energy Wave” which unleashes a projectile attack with charged swings.

If you’re a fan of the Legend of Zelda game series, you’ll recognize that it is an easter egg reference to the Master Sword wielded by the protagonist Link. If you want to unlock this legendary blade in Remnant 2, this guide will tell you exactly what you need to do.

How To Unlock Hero’s Sword in Remnant 2?

To get the Hero’s Sword in Remnant 2, you must first unlock the Explorer’s class archetype. This can done after defeating the final boss, Annihilation, in the game; once you’ve defeated the final boss, you will be rewarded with a broken golden compass. Take it to Wallace at Ward 13 to repair it into a Golden Compass. Now restart the game and select the Explorer class, and you will automatically have the sword equipped. This is, so far, the easiest way to get the weapon.

If you don’t feel like doing all that, you can go the other route. This is significantly more difficult. It requires you to complete the campaign in the nightmare difficulty mode. Once you can do this, you can purchase The Hero’s Sword from Brabus, the arms dealer in Ward 13. 

Hero’s Sword Stats

The sword is known for its powerful melee attacks and a base damage of 51; this means if it’s upgraded 10 times, it can reach a maximum damage of 153. It has a quick recovery time and a large area of effect, with each swing casting a sizeable area of damage. The Hero’s Sword also boasts +90% weak spot damage.

The weapon’s base stats allow you to take down enemies fairly quickly if you know where to hit your shots. However, all these benefits come at the cost of a negative stagger modifier. It also has no mutations, so the player can apply whatever mutator they see fit. It does, however, come with a rather strong weapon mod.

The Energy Wave weapon mod lets you send an energy projectile with each charged attack. These projectiles travel quite far and deal significant damage. Unfortunately, this mod cannot be equipped on other weapons.
