Best weapons Remnant 2

Remnant 2 is a souls-like third-person shooter that pits us against dangerous creatures and god-like bosses throughout the entire game. As a result, you don't want to go into the boss fights, or any fight for that matter, without the firepower to get the job done. However, with so many melee and ranged weapons in the game, how can you know which ones are capable? Thankfully, we've got you covered with the best weapons in Remnant 2 right below. So, read on to find out what they are!

8. Cube Gun

Although it's hard to believe it's a handgun, what's not hard to believe is that the Cube Gun is one of the best weapons in Remnant 2. I mean, just one glance at that thing will turn most foes away. Nonetheless, the Cube Gun recycles its five shots, so you never have to worry about running out of ammo – only overheating.

If you want to add this bad boy to your collection, you must first obtain the Conflux Prism. To get it, though, you must defeat the Sentinal boss fight. It's all part of the main campaign, so you'll get your hands on this gun someday; in the meantime, let's see what other weapons can tie us over in the meantime.

7. Chicago Typewriter

The Chicago Typewriter is a returning weapon from the original Remnant: From the Ashes. We're just happy to see it back in the sequel as this is one gun that's always had our back. Essentially functioning like a Tommy Gun, it has 80 rounds in its drum mag, allowing you to fire bullets for what feels like an eternity. As a result, the Chicago Typewriter is one of the best weapons in Remnant 2 for when you need to deal a lot of damage in a short period of time.

6. Deceit

Shaking thing's up, we have Deceit, which is a long-range sniper with some heavy firepower. Although it only has six shots in its magazine, each one deals 120 damage. So, if you need to finish off an enemy or pick them off before they can reach you, Deceit is the weapon for the job. We only wish acquiring this weapon was as simple as killing enemies with it.

To obtain this rifle, you must kill one of the two bosses from the imposter kings storyline, which takes place near the end of the Losomn bio playthrough. When it gets down to crunch time, make sure you kill Faelin and NOT Faerin. Killing Faelin will drop the Imposter's Heart, which you can take to McCabe to craft deceit.

5. Spectral Blade

Although Remnant 2 has its fair share of melee weapons, we tend to prefer the power of the ranged ones. Nonetheless, when it comes to melee weapons, the Spectral Blade is a must-have. Easily one of the best weapons in the game, the Spectral Blade is a “super-heated laser sword with an infinitely sharp edge.”

The highlight of this weapon, however, is its Whirlwind weapon mod. When performing a Charge Melee Attack during a Neutral Backdash, the Spectral Blade creates a Whirlwind that slashes enemies in an 8m radius, for 91 damage each. It's a ridiculously powerful move that's also tirelessly fun to use.

4. XMG57 Bonesaw

Despite its slower fire rate, the XMG57 Bonesaw is an upgrade over the Chicago Typewriter. Not only does it feature a magazine that holds 150 bullets (70 more than the Chicago), but it also does greater damage per bullet (12 DMG, compared to 10). And what do you have to give up to have that? Just a slightly slower fire rate. As a result, it's difficult to argue that the XMG57 Bonesaw isn't one of the best weapons in Remnant 2.

3. Alpha/Omega

The Alpha/Omega is one of Remnant 2's most versatile weapons. It's traditionally a rail gun, which you have to charge up to shoot. However, every successful hit reduces the charge time and increases the damage by 10%, stacking up to a total of 5x. Furthermore, its weapon mod Beta Ray instills a brand on foes that deals severe AOE damage. So, it's pretty easy to see why the Alpha/Omega is one of the best weapons in Remnant 2.

Unfortunately, this weapon won't be much help throughout the game since you get it from defeating Annihilation, the game's final boss. Nonetheless, it gives us much more motivation to bring him down.

2. Nightfall

The Nightfall is without a doubt one of the best weapons in Remnant 2 – as long as you have the Dreadwalker weapon mod installed. Essentially, this mod transports you into the Nightmare realm for 10 seconds, where the gun becomes fully automatic, has infinite ammo, a 35% increase in fire rate, and lastly, 10% lifesteal. If that's not a little overpower, we don't know what is.

1. MP60-R

Finally, the last gun you'll want to make the most of in your playthrough of Remnant 2 is the MP60-R. Although we use it as a secondary, it does a great job at cleaning up shop. It's got a high-fire rate, high damage, and a magazine big enough to get the job done. As a result, it kind of pairs perfectly with any primary and is easily the best weapon for clearing groups of enemies.

Despite the fact that it's already powerful on its own, its weapon mods really seal the deal here. The Overflow weapon mod, in particular, increases the weapon's fire rate, reload speed, and damage. Once you get it to that stature, the MP60-R is an absolute beast of a weapon.
