In Remnant 2, your journey begins with the choosing one of the archetypes, or classes. However, as you delve deeper into the game, you have the opportunity to unlock additional archetypes, each with its unique abilities and advantages.


One such archetype in Remnant 2 is the Explorer, known for its superior movement speed and treasure-finding buffs, making it an excellent choice for efficient material farming. This guide will walk you through the steps to unlock the Explorer archetype in Remnant II.

How to Unlock the Explorer Class in Remnant 2

The first step towards unlocking the Explorer archetype is to complete the game once. This journey culminates in a battle with the game’s final boss, after which you will receive a Broken Compass. This item is the key to unlocking the Explorer archetype in Remnant 2.

After the game’s credits roll, you will find yourself back in Ward 13. Here, you need to seek out Wallace. You’ll find him at the docks, in the same location where he granted you your starting archetype at the start of the game.


Craft the Golden Compass

With the Broken Compass in your possession, along with Lumenite Crystals and some Scrap, you can craft the Golden Compass. This item is the symbol of the Explorer archetype.

Once you have crafted the Golden Compass, return to Wallace. Exchange your Broken Compass for the Golden Compass with him.
