What are Remnants?
Remnants in Redfall are objects that the vampires were carrying when the psychic event happened and they ascended. They are magical talismans that you can equip on your character. These items let you augment your gameplay in different ways. For example, one could stagger enemies around you whenever you consume a medical supply.
There are three types of Remnants Ward, Blood, and Soul remnants. They can impact your Defense, Health, Skills, or Weapons.
Judging from the screenshot above you can equip 1 Vampire God Remnant, 1 Blood Remnant, and 3 Soul Remnants. Notice that you will need to unlock 2 of the 3 Soul slots. Also, the Vampire God Remnant hasn’t been mentioned before as far as I know, this could be the new/old name for the Ward Remnant.
How to get Remnants?
You can randomly get remnants from defeating Vampires, however, if you want the most powerful remnants, you have to enter a Vampire Nest.
Nests are shared psychic spaces where the vampires trip out. These areas don’t follow the conventual rules, that’s why you see a movie theater transition into a forest.
You can access nests through these magical doorways. These areas are replayable and fairly procedural as various rooms are being stitched together.
You will find a giant heart in the center of each Nest. That is the source of your powerful psychic remnant.
Remnants are available in various rarity types. The higher the rarity the better the item is, however, don’t just ditch your item because you found one of a higher rarity tier. The item does need to fit your character’s play style.
- Blue / Superior
