Alchemist Skills

Alchemist Skills

The Alchemist possesses three area-effect buff skills, which require careful timing for optimal use in battle:

  1. Vial Stone Mist (Level 1): Using Stone Mist creates a protective cloud lasting 10 seconds, granting Stoneskin for 15 seconds. Stoneskin reduces damage taken, slows Blight Buildup, and renders you immune to Status Effects like poison or stun.
  2. Vial Frenzy Dust (Level 5): Frenzy Dust creates a cloud lasting 10 seconds, bestowing Frenzied for 15 seconds. Frenzied enhances firing, reloading, and melee speed, providing agility and strength during combat.
  3. Vial Elixir of Life (Level 10): Activating Elixir of Life generates a cloud lasting 10 seconds, granting Living Will for 20 seconds. Living Will facilitates health regeneration, safeguards against fatal damage, and revives downed teammates upon full healing. Teammates can’t receive Living Will again for 180 seconds after revival.

These skills employ distinct vials with unique effects: one reduces damage, another aids in health regeneration, and the last enhances attack speed. Notably, these vials are throwable, allowing your teammates to benefit from their effects. Embrace the Alchemist’s versatility to become the ultimate support for your team.

Alchemist Class Spirited Prime Perk

Alchemist Class Spirited Prime Perk

The Prime Perk “Spirited” automatically unlocks for the Alchemist class in Remnant 2, providing players with enhanced flexibility and control right from the start. Initially, the Alchemist gains an extra Concoction buff, delivering added advantages during combat.

As you progress in levels, this perk becomes even more powerful. Level 5 allows the Alchemist to maintain two additional Concoction buffs simultaneously. When reaching level 10, the perk reaches its peak, enabling the activation of three extra buffs at once. “Spirited” ensures a dynamic and strategic gameplay experience, opening the door to a versatile and multi-dimensional Alchemist build.

Liquid Courage

Liquid Courage

In Remnant 2, the Alchemist class has the “Liquid Courage” perk, granting a 2.5% damage boost against foes, which increases with the class’s level.

At level 6, it spikes to an impressive 25% damage boost and adds a 5% Critical Chance increase, making it a powerful asset for maximizing offense.


The Remnant 2 Alchemist class has a team-oriented perk called “Panacea” at level 2. It provides curative effects and an extra 15 points of resistance to all team members within a 15-meter radius. At level 7, it upgrades to give allies 10% more resistance against Status and Blight, acting as a protective aura that enhances the team’s resilience.

Gold To Lead

Gold To Lead

One of the intriguing aspects of the Alchemist class in Remnant 2 is the “Gold To Lead” perk, a utility perk unlocked at level 3. It adds a unique twist to the standard collection mechanic, where each scrap pickup carries a 15% chance of simultaneously supplying Ammo to the Alchemist.

The perk receives a substantial upgrade at level 8, expanding its capabilities to encompass not just Scrap, but also Metals. This means that any picked-up Scrap or Metal carries the same 15% chance of being accompanied by Ammo. “Gold To Lead” optimizes resource management, providing an additional avenue for ammo acquisition and offering players an advantage in combat. 



In Remnant 2, the Alchemist class boasts the “Experimentalist” perk, a novel approach to relic usage. This perk, unlocked at level 4, means that whenever a Relic is used, it applies a random buff to the Alchemist for a duration of 30 seconds. Crucially, this buff is immutable, preventing any form of overriding.

The perk evolves at level 9 to include the Alchemist and any allies within a 20-meter radius. Additionally, the duration of the applied buff doubles to 60 seconds. The “Experimentalist” perk introduces an element of unpredictability, capable of turning the tide of battle through the application of these random but potent buffs.

Alchemist Class Starting Gear 

Alchemist Archetype in Remnant 2

Similar to the rest of the classes in Remnant 2, the Alchemist also comes with 3 starting weapons and one complete gear set. I have listed the complete gear set for this archetype here below containing guns and armor set pieces in Remnant 2.

1. Wrangler 1860

RPS (Rounds per Second)2.1
Ideal Range25m
Falloff Range70m
Max Ammo50
Critical Hit Chance10%
Weak Spot Damage Bonus110%
Stagger Modifier0%

In Remnant 2, the Alchemist class can wield the Wrangler 1860, a rugged long gun well-suited for versatile combat ranges. This lever-action hunting rifle, obtainable from Brabus at Ward 13 or as starting equipment for both the Alchemist and Gunslinger Archetypes, provides a dependable edge in battle. However, its slow reload speed necessitates strategic management in heated firefights, adding a layer of tactical depth to the gameplay.

2. Bone Chopper

Critical Hit Chance7%
Weak Spot Damage Bonus+105%
Stagger Modifier-3%

The Alchemist’s arsenal in Remnant 2, the “Bone Chopper,” holds a significant place. As brutal as it sounds, this melee weapon is a razor-sharp hand axe meticulously crafted for the grim task of separating flesh from bone. It dishes out moderate damage, but it’s the charged state where it truly shines, unleashing devastating double attacks suitable for offensive and defensive strategies.

Available as starting equipment for the Alchemist archetype, it can also be discovered after completing The Feast Event, where it awaits the adventurous in a room accessible by a small lift. Bone Chopper transforms the Alchemist into a formidable opponent in close-quarters combat.

3. Double Barrel

In Remnant 2, the “Double Barrel” is a potent weapon in the Alchemist’s inventory. As a Hand Gun, it packs a punch in a compact form. The Double Barrel is a sturdy, short-barreled firearm, designed for close-quarter encounters where it can decimate enemies swiftly.

This makes it a perfect choice for players who prioritize firepower and expect intense engagements. The Double Barrel can be acquired as part of the starting gear for the Alchemist Archetype, or alternatively, it can be found tucked away in an Iron Safe in Morrow Parish in Losomn, unlockable by completing the ‘Head Doctor’ event and using the code 2971.
