Secret gear in Remnant: From the Ashes will prove to be quite powerful and useful when it comes to boss fights. These will help you progress through the game a lot faster and efficiently, so you must scour areas for these hidden items. We’ve made that easy for you by describing set zones for such items in Remnant: From the Ashes. This Remnant: From the Ashes Secret Item Locations Guide will tell you where all the secret weapons and gear are.
Remnant: From the Ashes Secret Item Locations
Before we list all the items and their corresponding locations in the table, it’s useful to know that you might not find an item EXACTLY at the spot described below. This is because most of the areas are procedurally generated for players so the location of the items might be some blocks apart. However, they’re most likely to be in the same region so you won’t have to meander off too far away from the described zone.
Spawning of the secret items is also a bit different for different players, so make sure to be in a party of the player who for sure has obtained the secret item in their version of the game.
