Now it’s time to wrap up our Remnant 2 all archetype guide. All of them are distinct from each other in their skills, abilities, and expertise. You can also pick the one depending on your gaming style, i.e., solo or Co-Op.

We have tried our best to cover all of them in detail so you can learn about each archetype in detail. If you find it hard to maintain health during combat, then you can go for the support ones, or if you have some other preference, then you can go through others.

We will be back with some other new stuff; till then, happy gaming.
