Remnant 2 Override Pin [Location & Uses]

Learn how to find the Override Pin in Remnant 2, along with its uses & craft an amazing weapon at the end.

The Override Pin item in Remnant 2 is not a part of any side or main quest, but players have to look for it to get their hands on it. In this guide, I will show you the location of the Override Pin as well as how it can be used to craft the Aphelion Long Gun.

Key Takeaways
  • Remnant 2 features the special Override Pin found in the nameless dungeon of Timeless Horizon.
  • To acquire the Override Pin, players must explore the depths of the dungeon.
  • The Override Pin is essential for crafting Aphelion, a powerful long gun ideal for mid-range combat, based on my personal experience.
  • Crafting Aphelion also requires additional items: Void Cinder (1), Lumenite Crystal (7), and Scrap (1000).

Remnant 2 Override Pin Location

The override pin is an item that can be used to craft the long gun, “Aphelion.” However, the override pin can be found in a specific location. To get the override pin, first of all, you have to get to the biome of Timeless Horizon. Once you are at the Timeless Horizon, look for the nameless tower/dungeon, as shown in the image below.

After you find the nameless tower, here’s the following steps I would recommend to find the Override Pin:

  1. Get inside the nameless tower in front.
  2. Go straight and get into the third room.
  3. Activate the elevator.

How To Craft Aphelion In Remnant 2?

Now that you have your hands on the override pin, the next step is to craft the long gun, Aphelion. However, it is not as easy as it seems because, before that, you have to defeat the boss, “Sha’Hala Spectral Guardian of N’Erud.

To find Sha’Hala, follow these steps:

  1. Travel to the Phantom Wastelands in Remnant 2.
  2. Use the Seeker’s Keys in the console in front.

  4. Once you have opened the giant door, get inside.
  5. It will take you to a place known as “Sentinel’s Keep.”

  12. Now, travel back to Ward 13, interact with the craftswoman Ava McCabe, and ask her to craft Aphelion for you using the Void Cinder.

Now that Aphelion has been crafted, you can unleash the true power of the Dying Star. Aphelion, in my opinion, proves to be one of the most dangerous weapons for mid-range fights. 

With all of the information regarding the location and uses of Remnant 2’s Override Pin, this guide ends. The override pin can be used to craft one of the dominating mid-range weapons, Aphelion. In order to craft Aphelion, one has to defeat Sha’Hala and get the Void Cinder that it drops.
