All Traits & unlock requirements - Remnant 2

Every Trait in Remnant 2, how to unlock each one, and what they do.


There are more than two dozen Traits to unlock in Remnant 2. Each of these Traits offers powerful effects that can drastically alter your build, but unlocking them isn’t easy. A lot of Traits are unlocked by finding Archetypes while others are awarded for defeating random bosses and completing events. Here’s a full list of all available Traits, their effects, and how to unlock them.

There are more than 30 Traits in Remnant 2, and while you will start the game with five, you’ll slowly unlock more as you progress. Several are tied directly to different Archetypes, which means you must unlock more Archetypes to get them, and others are dropped by bosses.

Due to the random generation of Remnant 2, you are unlikely to get all Traits on one playthrough. You will need to use the Adventure Mode to track down specific areas if you didn’t get it the first time through or start a new campaign entirely.

We’ll be sure to keep this list updated as more Traits are discovered and as Gunfire Games adds more (hopefully). Take a look at our Remnant 2 page for more helpful information including guides to puzzles, like unlock Ford’s safe in Ward 13 and solving the puzzle in The Lament.
