How To Unlock All Traits In Remnant 2

Remnant 2 offers players a special way of achieving bonuses and buffs in the form of passive abilities called Traits.

Remnant 2 offers players a special way of achieving bonuses and buffs in the form of passive abilities called Traits. Since these serve as passive, extra bonuses, they can be quite handy in general combat.

However, simple as it may seem, there is a lot that goes into Traits, which makes this mechanic important to learn if it’s meant to be used optimally.

Remnant 2 has a total of 295 Trait Points from which 90 will be available to you to choose from. Out of these 90 Trait Points, 10 will be taken up by each archetype equipped and added 5 by the Core Traits which cannot be reallocated.

The remaining 65 can be distributed freely and also reassigned using Orb of Undoing. This makes it difficult for you to level up all the traits so it’s better to focus on relevant to your build first.

Traits in Remnant 2 are divided into three major categories: Core Traits that are available by default, Archetype Traits that are class-specific, and unlockable traits that you can only get after completing certain activities.

Core Traits and their effects in Remnant 2

You automatically unlock all four Core Traits after choosing your first (starter) archetype in Remnant 2. These Traits are going to last you until the end of the game and serve as a foundation for your character builds.

Archetype Traits and how to get them in Remnant 2

Every archetype you choose in Remnant 2 comes with its own exclusive Archetype Trait that is specifically tailored to your class’ playstyle. You can equip a maximum of two Archetype Traits after unlocking dual archetypes in the game.

Do note that you can upgrade each Archetype Trait to a maximum of level 10, after which you can use the Trait with other classes without needing their respective engram.

How to upgrade traits in Remnant 2

Remember how you needed to spend trait points in the previous installment, Remnant: From the Ashes, to improve your traits? While Remnant 2 brings back trait points, they are used for something else.

So how to upgrade your traits in Remnant 2? They upgrade automatically every time its archetype levels up. Do note that you can only upgrade traits to a maximum of 10 levels.

When you do cap out at level 10, that trait becomes available for use with other archetypes. Here is where your trait points come into play. You can use them to equip traits that are otherwise incompatible with your archetype build.

You can acquire Trait Points either by defeating bosses, defeating Aberrations, or finding a couple of books on the ground.
