Remnant 2: Scrap Exploit [Explained]

Get an unlimited amount of scraps to buy anything you want by using this easy to pull-off Remnant 2 scrap exploit!

Scraps are quite important in Remnant 2 as they allow you to buy all sorts of weapons and upgrades. That is why trying to get as many as you can is crucial. Although scrap farm techniques work, none of them can come close to how efficient the Remnant 2 Scrap Exploit is in acquiring large amounts of scrap quickly. 

Key Takeaways
  • Scraps are crucial in Remnant 2 for weapons and upgrade purchases essential for progress.
  • Losomn’s Great Sewers‘ Scrap Exploit yields Severed Hands, rapidly boosting scrap reserves.
  • Use weapons like Merciless or Hellfire to shoot a suspended body repeatedly for this exploit.
  • Upon revisiting, rings transform instantly into Scrap, bypassing inventory accumulation.
  • Craft the Merciless Long Gun at McCabe Store using a Crimson Membrane.
  • Acquire the Hellfire Flamethrower in Root Earth’s Ashen Wasteland near a specific semi-truck.
  • Note: Gunfire Games may patch exploits like the Scrap Exploit for game balance and fairness across platforms.

For some added description and steps, I have included a quick video detailing the possible Scrap Exploits in Remnant 2:

How Does Scrap Exploit Work In Remnant 2?

The secret to this lucrative Scrap farming lies in the Great Sewers of Losomn in Remnant 2. Here, adventurous players may stumble upon a grim sight – a lifeless body hanging from colossal cages suspended from the ceiling.

Normally, targeting a certain body may result in a severed hand dropping containing a ring. However, by employing certain weapons against the cage, players have found a way to multiply this outcome, filling their inventories with these precious items.

The Scrap Exploit Strategy

Location of Severed Hand

Here’s what I would do to take advantage of this method:

  • To take advantage of this loophole, you need to equip your character with specific weapons such as the Merciless or Hellfire. 
  • These are the only weapons that seem to work for now, though some players have claimed that the Nebula can also work.
  • By repeatedly targeting and shooting at the suspended body with those specific weapons, you can generate multiple Severed Hands, thus increasing your Scrap reserves. 
  • Here’s where an interesting feature of Remnant 2 comes into play. 
  • If you encounter a ring for the second time in your world, instead of being added to your inventory, it converts directly into Scrap. 
  • Therefore, keep inspecting all those Severed Hands and removing the same ring, which will turn into Scrap.

How To Get The Merciless Weapon

To craft the Merciless Long Gun in Remnant 2, you need to visit the McCabe Store.

I needed the following materials to craft the Merciless Long Gun at Ava McCabe’s store:

  1. One Crimson Membrane
    • You acquire it from the Corrupted Ravager in Ravager’s Lair, Yaesha. 
    • You should shoot the Ravager when it asks you to kill the Doe, allowing it to consume the Doe midway through the fight. 
    • After the fight, you can collect the Crimson Membrane.
  2. Seven Lumenite Crystals: These can be purchased for 300 Scrap at Cass.
  3. 650 Scrap: These are dropped by enemies after you defeat them.

When you have all three items, head to McCabe’s store and craft the Merciless Long Gun.

How To Get The Hellfire Weapon

The process of acquiring this potent weapon is quite straightforward, albeit easily missed if you don’t know where to look.

Here’s how I acquired the Hellfire Flamethrower:

  1. Progress through the game until you reach Root Earth’s end area.
  2. In Ashen Wasteland within Root Earth, find a scene of wrecked vehicles, including an upside-down semi-truck in a crater.
  3. Focus on the upside-down semi-truck—it’s your target behind a wall.
  4. You have two options: find a small spot to jump over the wall or use a nearby root to ascend and leap onto the truck.
  5. Your goal is to reach the semi-truck, where a purple glow reveals the Hellfire Flamethrower.

Potential Changes

Be aware that exploits like these might not last long. Once the developers of Gunfire Games become aware of such tactics, they usually implement patches to nullify them. This would be done to maintain the game’s intended balance and fairness across all platforms. Therefore, make sure to utilize this trick while it’s still available.

With that, you know all about the Remnant 2 Scrap Exploit. It can be quite useful for acquiring large amounts of Scrap in a short time period. That will allow you to get different things, such as the Relic Fragment.
