While Remnant 2 offers 5 very stable and all-rounded archetypes to choose from at the start of your playthrough, players will be happy to know that there are a few secret archetypes they can find hidden around the worlds. The engineer archetype is one such hidden class in Remnant 2.

To find the Engineer archetype in Remnant 2, go to the second overworld on N’Erud and explore the Timeless Horizon OR The Eon Vault, depending on your world roll. You need to find a specific land mass and then jump through the fog to obtain an alien device and the Technician armor set there. Wallace will turn that alien device into the Engineer Archetype.

Let’s take a look at all of these steps in more detail and break things down to make it easier for you to obtain the Engineer archetype in Remnant 2.

Unlocking the Engineer Archetype in Remnant 2

Timeless Horizon - Engineer Archetype in Remnant 2

Starting things off, your hunt for the Engineer archetype begins on N’Erud, specifically on its second overworld. N’Erud has a few different iterations based on the world roll you got.

Just go through a dungeon or two until you can get to the second overworld, which will either be:

  • Timeless Horizon (we got this location)
  • Eon Vault

Exploring the Second Overworld

Now that you’ve made it to the poison-covered second overworld, you need to stick to its edges (close to the wall of fog) and start looking for a specific land mass.

Look for this gap between a spiky cliff and spikes

You need to keep your eyes peeled for a spiky cliff on the left with a hole in the middle and a few more spikes on the right side. It’ll look exactly the same as the geometry in the image above.

  • Once spotted, be prepared to go inside the gap and quickly jump onto a platform. The alien device needed to craft this archetype is found on this platform.
  • After that, look left, and you’ll see some shining loot on the ground. Quickly jump down and grab the Technician armor set as well.

[Caution: This part requires speed as you will be coughing due to the toxic gases and you will die. The goal is to grab everything in one go – before you die from poisoning.]

If you end up dying before collecting both items, just go back to the same area and look for this spot on your map.

Now take the alien device to Wallace at Ward 13. He will offer to craft it into a Drzyr Caliper if you have enough Luminite Crystals and Scraps.

Congrats, you can now equip the Engineer archetype in Remnant 2 as your primary or secondary class.

This archetype is suited for players who want to use heavy machine guns and play a more support & suppression-based role during their Co-op sessions. Pair it with Medic to become a self-healing, suppressing tank.

The Heavy Weapon: Vulcan skill you get from the start lets you deploy a turret onto the battlefield. You or your allies can carry this turret, or it can also be set up in a spot for manual or automatic targeting.

You can switch to a Flamethrower at Level 5 and an Impact Canon at Level 10. We found the turret to be the overall best option for most scenarios. It can help you mow down mobs or provide decent DPS toward Elite enemies.

The perks in this archetype are all catered toward increasing skill damage, damage reduction, and increasing movement while carrying heavy weaponry. Overall, this is one of the game’s best archetypes for Solo and Co-op players.

You’ll benefit a lot from the perks and skills of the Engineer class if you are using heavy weapons and armor sets such as the Leto Mark II set.

That covers our guide on how to unlock the Engineer archetype in Remnant 2. Stick with WIG for more Remnant 2 coverage.
