Several quality-of-life changes have been implemented in the PlayStation 5 version of the game with the release of this patch. Some of these include the Tome of Knowledge granting Scrap and EXP when the player has reached the cap for Trait points. Additionally, the Trait Requirement for equipping a second Archetype has been removed. Players can now slot a second one as soon as they obtain an Engram at Wally.

Alongside the aforementioned adjustments, various bugs have also been addressed to improve Remnant 2. Issues involving the Hunter’s Focus, the Invader Perk S.H.A.R.K. not applying its damage bonuses, and Gunslinger’s Bulletstorm audio were resolved. A bug allowing Male Engineers to ignore the falling transition during an Overclock was patched as well.
