No one should limit themselves to the confinements of the starting Archetype weapon. Unless you are a Challenger I might add. Although Brabus in Ward 13 offer a ton of weapons for players to get started with, there are more that can be found through exploration or crafted with McCabe using its unique item. But where can you find these crafting materials? What event do you need to trigger in order to obtain a lone weapon, ready and willing to be wielded by you? With 56 secret weapons to find, unlock and craft, the road to 100% completion and finding that ultimate Build to show off to your friends is a winding path but one that is incredibly rewarding. For those looking to obtain all secret weapons in this Souls-like, this is Vincent’s guide on where to find all secret Long Guns in Remnant 2.
All 18 Secret Long Guns to Unlock in Remnant 2 – Weapon Unlock Guide
With 18 secret Long Gun weapons to find and try out for your sharpshooting Build, there is a lot to explore in Remnant 2. Locating these inside a randomized world with everchanging rules, different bosses for each area and World Levels to be wary of, the route to nabbing some of these weapons for yourself may be a tricky one. Whilst most weapons outlined below can indeed be found in the exact location we state, the route to getting them may be different for you in the sense that finding the exact area within the world you are exploring may require fast travelling and world resets in order to find.
Keep in mind that this guide is outlining the weapons you can find within the game world such as, as pickups, enemy drops or stumbled upon by exploring the way of the land. It also hightlights unique items that you need to find to craft the corresponding secret weapon with. A lot of great weapons can be crafted with McCabe inside Ward 13, meaning that you need more than enough Lumenite Crystals and Scrap to complete the crafting process.
When finding the secret weapons, be mindful of your Power Level and World Level. Most of these secret weapons are found in areas that require a higher Level in order to explore and defeat any enemies that way come your way. You do not want to commit to finding one of the best weapons in the game after only just starting your playthrough. Keep that in mind as we outline each location for the secret Long Guns.
