The use of Relic Fragment in Remnant 2 is key to enhancing your character’s abilities. Much like the armor perks from the first game, these fragments offer valuable bonuses, such as more stamina or damage. Not only are they found in your journey or gained by defeating bosses, but they can also be crafted.

What Are Relic Fragments In Remnant 2?

Based on my experience, Relic Fragments are a must-have since they can significantly help you enhance your character’s abilities without any effort on your part.

They are similar to the armor perks from the first game, but they are more flexible and can help you create any kind of character build you want. By using Relic Fragments, you can maximize your character’s potential.

Relic Fragments can be confusing at first. You will get them quickly in Remnant 2, but you might not know what they do. They are important because they give you passive bonuses like more stamina or damage.

Relics are items that can be used to heal and give you other helpful bonuses. For example, the dragon Heart Relic can heal you over time. There are also other Relics like the Bleed Heart and Scrap Heart.

How To Equip Relic Fragments In Remnant 2

To utilize Relic Fragments, access your Relic through your character’s menu.

Gunfire has provided insights into Relics’ functionality and their role in enhancing your character. Relic Fragments are not stored in your inventory alongside other items; they have a separate menu for equipping. To equip Relic Fragments, follow these steps:

  1. Pause Remnant 2.
  2. Open your character menu.
  3. Navigate to the Relic slot, located at the bottom left of the menu.
  4. Inspect your Relic using the platform-specific button (Y on Xbox, Triangle on PlayStation, RMB on PC).
  5. Choose one of the three available slots on the left side of the menu.

These steps enable you to modify the equipped Relic Fragments within your Relic. Remember, you can freely swap and combine fragments as you collect more.

Relics offer three slots for Relic Fragments, allowing you to fill them with fragments from your inventory. You can switch between different bonuses as desired. As you progress in Remnant 2, you’ll encounter more potent versions of these fragments, identifiable by higher numbers next to their names.

If you discover a more powerful fragment, Remnant 2 will automatically equip it for your convenience, eliminating the need to manually check your inventory for upgrades.

Relic Fragments Upgrade Path In Remnant 2

In Remnant 2, you can only have one Relic Fragment of each kind. If you have a mod that costs one, any additional ones you find may upgrade that mod. The more Relic Fragments you collect, the better they will become.

Remember that Relic Fragments will automatically upgrade when you come across a stronger version of one that you already possess. If you already have a mod that costs one and you find another one that costs one, it won’t add to your collection. Instead, it will upgrade the one you already have. So the more Relic Fragments you collect, the stronger they will become as they upgrade each other.

How To Get More Relic Fragments

There are multiple ways to acquire Relic Fragments, and from my gameplay experience, the methods I’ve uncovered are listed below:

  • You can defeat Elites and Bosses in Remnant 2 to obtain Relics as loot drops.
  • You can also find them in treasure chests scattered throughout Remnant 2 World.
  • Additionally, you can craft Relic Fragments in Ward 13 using Relic dust.

To create Relic Fragments, it is necessary to go to Dwell, located in Ward 13, and utilize 15 Relic Dust, which can be discovered inside a treasure chest. Keep an eye out for yellow circles on your map as they mark the Remnant 2 location of treasure chests.

All Relic Fragment Rarity Types In Remnant 2

Relic Fragments have three levels of rarity: Cracked, Ordinary, and solid. These three levels indicate how powerful the Relic Fragments are and how difficult they are to obtain. The quality of Relic Fragments you discover improves as your power level increases. However, difficulty level may also impact the rarity of Relic Fragments.

  1. Cracked Relic Fragments are the most common and least powerful. They are often found in the early stages of Remnant 2 and provide basic bonuses to the players.
  2. Ordinary Relic Fragments are less common than Cracked ones and provide more powerful bonuses to the player. Typically, these objects can be found in the midst of Remnant 2, and obtaining them requires additional effort.
  3. Solid Relic Fragments are the rarest and most powerful. They provide the most significant bonuses to the player and are often required to craft advanced weapons and armor. These items are usually located towards the end of Remnant 2 and obtaining them requires a great deal of effort.

Relic Fragments Color Types

The three types of Relic Fragments in Remnant 2 are distinguished by their colors. The effects of each type are varied and determined by the random number generator (RNG).

Relic Fragments Blue

The Blue Relic Fragments are primarily designed for defensive purposes.

They can reduce the damage you take, increase your healing rate, or boost your stamina. Some of the benefits include increased armor effectiveness, resistance to blight and elemental damage, higher gray health regeneration, improved healing abilities, faster revive speed, more effective shields, reduced stamina cost, and faster stamina recovery.

Relic Fragments Red

Red Relic Fragments are focused on increasing damage output. For those seeking to increase their DPS, these fragments are an excellent option.

They can enhance melee and ranged damage, elemental damage, melee attack speed, melee and ranged critical chance, melee critical damage, ranged fire rate, ranged weak spot damage, skill damage, mold damage, stagger damage, and weak spot damage.

Relic Fragments Yellow

Yellow Remnant 2 Relic Fragments are designed for support purposes, at least from what I’ve tested. They can improve things like casting speed, mod cost, recoil, and weapon swap speed.

Other effects include increasing ammo pickups and reserves, consumable duration and speed, mod duration, skill cooldown, and duration, spread recovery, and weapon spread.

In Remnant 2, a good Relic Fragment is a great help and I definitely recommend finding and equipping them. They make your character stronger and better. You can get them by winning fights, finding them in hidden places, or making them yourself.

Now that you know all about power level, I suggest you check out Remnant 2: How To Solve Lament Dial Puzzle, Shining Essence Echo, Ford Chest Code, and How To Open Hatchery Locked Door guides & increase your knowledge about the game.
