You can get them by defeating bosses and elites, opening chests littered throughout the game, or purchasing them from Dwell in Ward 13.

Bosses and Elites 

There is a chance that you can relic fragments in Remnant 2 simply by defeating bosses or elite enemies in the game. Late-game bosses have a tendency to drop rarer and stronger relic fragments so it’s a good idea to seek them out and defeat them. There are a number of optional bosses in the game so you can go out and try to farm relic fragments from them. However, it isn’t an ideal way to farm them due to their difficulty.  


You’ll find many chests littered around the Remnant 2 world which can have a chance to contain a relic fragment. Simply keep an eye out for them and you’ll have chance to get these fragments.

Dwell (Ward 13) 

Dwell is a merchant in Ward 13 that sells relic fragments. Simply walk up to him and interact with him to see if he has any in stock. Check back with Dwell every time you return to Ward 13 to see all the new fragments up for sale. 

Relic Fragment Rarity and Colors Explained  

Relic fragments are available in different rarities and colors. The rarity can determine the quality of a relic fragment in Remnant 2 and how powerful it will be. The colors can determine which kind of fragment it is and how it can be used. 


Relic Fragments come in three rarities: 

  • Cracked fragments are among the most easily found relic fragments in the game. As such, they are the least powerful.
  • Ordinary fragments are slightly harder to find than their Cracked counterparts. Accordingly, these are more powerful. 
  • Solid relic fragments are the rarest and hardest to find in Remnant 2. As such, you’ll find them to be the most powerful.  


Relic Fragments are also classified according to their nature. i.e, whether a relic fragment is offensive, defensive, or supportive in nature.

  • Red fragments enhance or increase your damage capabilities including ranged, melee, and critical DPS.  
  • Blue fragments enhance your defensive capabilities including how quickly you heal, the amount of damage you take, revive speed, and more. 
  • Lastly, yellow fragments are support based and include stat buffs related to increased ammo pick-up, reload speeds, mod effectiveness, weapon swap speed, and more.  

How to upgrade Relic Fragments in Remnant 2

Upgrades for Relic Fragments in Remnant 2 work differently from other upgrades in the game. You can’t simply upgrade your relics by exchanging resources or currency. Instead, you need to find the same fragment type again.   

For example, if you wish to upgrade the Mythic Stagger Damage Relic Fragment, you will need to find it once more. Once you do, both these relic fragments roll into one forming one stronger fragment. Due to the randomized nature of Relic Fragment drops, it may take you quite a bit of time and work to upgrade a specific fragment.
