How To Unlock Archon Archetype: Remnant 2

Learn about the latest secret Archon Archetype and how to unlock this class.

Remnant 2 is a mystery itself while hiding more mysteries at the same time. As if upgrading your archetype class and arsenal was not enough already, now you have to look for secrets that are hidden way beneath. However, some secrets are so “secret” that even devs may have forgotten what was the content about.

Amidst these mysteries, we have recently found another secret archetype that was waiting to be discovered long since. And this is the Archon archetype.

How To Unlock Archon in Remnant 2

As mentioned earlier, you will need to be equipped with some very specific loadout before you can go for unlocking this menace. Let’s break it down in a more digestible way:

Unlock Explorer

First of all, you will need to unlock the Explorer archetype first. This might be the first letdown, as Explorer can only be unlocked after you have completed the game at least once. As you defeat the final boss, Annihilation, you will be rewarded with the Broken Compass. Craft it to Wallace in Ward 13 with the required materials, and it will turn into the Golden Compass Engram. Now, you will be able to play as Explorer from your next playthrough.

Next, you will also need to level up max with Explorer, as it will unlock all the perks and skills. Additionally, you will need the Realm Walker Armor set. That you can buy from Whispers.

Unlock Invader

And yes, to unlock a secret archetype, you will need to unlock another secret archetype. First, you will need to get the Dreamcatcher. After that, head to Corrupted Harbor and get the Walker’s Dream. On your way out, you will encounter Bane. Defeat it, and you will acquire the Wooden Shiv.

Craft the Wooden Shiv at Wallace’s place, and it will turn into the Serrated Root Blade, which is the Engram for the Invader class. Note that, you will also need to be equipped with the Katana. Next, level up Invader to Lvl 5 and unlock the skill, Worm Hole.

Get Void Heart Relic

First, defeat the boss Shahala. Then, meet the Custodian. After that, wait for some time and you will notice that there is only one destination available due to the corruption, which is Alepsis-Taura. Upon entering, you will receive the Void Heart.

Equip Cube Gun

This one is a handgun that can generate Cube Shield to absorb upcoming damage. However, you will need to defeat the Labyrinth Sentinel boss to get this weapon as a reward.

Equip Ford’s Scattergun

To get this gun, you will need re-roll in adventure mode, as it will unlock the Red Throne world set. Progress through this world and remember to take sides with every decision the Queen makes. This is absolutely necessary. Moreover, you will soon come across a quest to retrieve a Lockbox of the Queen hidden at the waterfall.

Get the box and present it to the Queen. Do not open the box. Upon receiving the Lockbox, Queen will reward you with the ring, Seal of the Empress. Use it to open a secret passageway in the library that is just beside the temple. You will find the Ford’s Scattergun there.

Equipe Some Jwelleries

You will need Leto’s Amulet, Amber Moonstone, Black Cat Band, Anastasija’s Inspiration, and Zania’s Malice. Now that you are equipped with all the necessary loadout, you are now eligible to unlock the Archon.

Unlock Archon

At first, head back to the Labyrinth. Find out the glitching portal and enter it after 2-3 seconds. Head straight and take the first right before the end portal. There will be another glitching portal. Interact with it, and you will be able to enter the portal. You will soon find yourself in a new world. More like the rooms from the Escape Room.

Roam around a bit, and you will soon come across a Strange Box. Before heading back, roam around a little bit more, and you will also find the Bisected Ring, and the Gunfire Security Lanyard, which is an amulet. All you need to do is now get out of the portal and head back to Wallace. Craft this item into the Hexahedron Engram, and there you go, you have now unlocked the Engram for the Archon Archetype.
