Remnant 2 is filled with various amulets that bestow its wearer with valuable enhancements and damage management. One such amulet in Remnant 2 is the Twisted Idol Amulet, which is exceptional, especially if you look forward to carrying heavy weight in the game.
The Twisted Idol amulet does not look like much from its appearance, as it only seems to be a few sticks tied together with a thread. However, the same does not apply to this amulet’s functionality. Due to its impressive weight reduction and armor effectiveness, it is safe to say that the Twisted Idol amulet is one of the best amulets in Remnant 2.
If paired up appropriately, it gives you an extra edge and even carries you to the endgame. But before getting into its compatible builds and effects, let us look for the location of this amulet.
Twisted Idol amulet location in Remnant 2
Fortunately, there is not much that you need to do to obtain the Twisted Idol amulet. You can buy it from an NPC merchant, Cass, who sets up shops at Ward 13. She will sell you the amulet for 400 Scrap. But as her stock is always randomly generated, you may not find this item.
If you can’t find the amulet in her stock, keep trying again; eventually, you will get your hands on it. Another way to acquire the Twisted Idol amulet is through the Wailing Tree, a Random Event that spawns in the outdoor area of the Earth map. Once you have traveled to the Wailing Tree, you must destroy it.
Shoot at the tree to commence the fight. The Wailing Tree has several weak spots that look like red outgrowths. Shoot on them to drain the tree’s health faster, especially at the largest one marked in the image.
After you have attacked the tree, it will summon enemy mobs to fight back. Get them out of your way but keep your main focus on the tree, as the enemies will disappear once it dies. You can also take help from teammates or summon mods to make a quick kill.
Once the Wailing Tree is destroyed, you and your teammates (if any) will be rewarded with the Twisted Idol amulet in Remnant 2.
