To obtain Tempered, Fortified, and Hardened Remnants Remnants in God of War: Ragnarok, you can search for wreckage sites and defeat the Einherjar and Asgardian warriors. Once you have defeated them, you can loot a red chest containing Fortified Remnants, Tempered Remnants, or Hardened Remnants. It is worth noting that Hardened Remnants are a rare resource, so you may want to save your game before attempting to collect them. If you don’t obtain the Hardened Remnants on your first try, you can restart the game and try again.
