Indiana Jones reference

Easter Eggs

One of the randomly-generated dungeons in the Sewers, ahead of the first boss, contains a message written on the wall that says “Only the Penitent Man Shall Pass.” This is a reference to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and you need to overcome this as the same way as in the movie—crouching here will make the illusory wall disappear so you can pass and get the Leto’s Amulet item.

Note: due to dungeons being randomly-generated, you won’t necessarily see this in your game.

Darksiders connections

Easter Eggs

There are numerous things that remind fans of the Darksiders series, including the potion sound being the same as that from Darksiders 2 and several levels, environments, etc. being re-used from Darksiders 3. The connections are extensive enough that some fans questioned whether or not Remnant: From the Ashes and Darksiders are set in the same universe. However, the developers have denied this; since the developers of Remnant are the same as those for Darksiders 3, it’s simply a case of re-using assets. Instead, Remnant is set in the same universe as the VR game Chronos.

Hidden Items / Weapons / Armor


There are numerous hidden weapons, items, special armor sets, and other pieces of loot that you can find through careful exploration. However, part of the problem is that areas in the game are randomly-generated, so a guide may not necessarily show the precise spot where you will find the hidden item in your game. It isn’t completely random, though—the item should always spawn in a similar location, so guides should give you a rough idea of where to begin looking.

If you’re having trouble finding any of the hidden items and secrets, use the video guides below for help.

Basic Tips


Make sure you take items and ammo with you, especially items that will heal status effects.

You will also restore health by using your Dragon Shard. The Dragon Shard can be upgraded after the second boss.

There are many secrets to discover, so explore thoroughly and try to check every part of the map.

You also should break any breakable items in the area, as this is a good way of collecting additional Scrap.

If your damage numbers show up in red, that means you’ve hit the enemy’s weak spot. If it’s yellow, that means you’ve made a critical hit. If it’s red and bold, that means it’s a critical hit at a weak spot.

Different types of enemies have different weak spots, so pay attention to what they are and use that knowledge to your advantage.

Dodging is quite helpful. With the right timing, you can dodge any attack.

Your dodge becomes slower if you have heavier gear equipped, so pay attention to this and decide whether you want a faster dodge or heavier armor.

Pay attention to the crosshairs. The reticule will change depending on whether or not you’re aiming at the ideal range and if there is an obstacle in your way.

You might also consider using your melee attacks to take out weaker enemies and conserve a little ammo.

Enemies can spawn behind you, so stay alert and listen for any approaching enemies.

Go slowly and take your time to be aware of any threats up ahead.

Weapon mods are very useful, so be sure to use them for the special effects they provide. While you might be tempted to save them for the boss, you can recharge them along the way, so it’s worth using mods against normal enemies too.

Avoid rerolling your world unless you’re looking for a challenge. It will match it to your highest-level equipment, so a rerolled world will often end up being harder.
