If you didn’t know already, I love this game. Now that I’ve learned how to play the game and don’t want to chuck my computer out the window, here are a few more tips and tricks to get through Remnant: From the Ashes.
Remnant: From the Ashes from Gunfire Games is incredible to play on many levels. The gameplay is like that of Dark Souls. If you’re not prepared for a fight, you’re going down, and you’re going down like a wet noodle. You need to constantly level up your gear, make sure that you’re paying attention, and stay on point with dodging and other skills that require you to be on top of your game 1000% of the time. I’ve put together a few tips and tricks to help you survive the game.
Gameplay tip: Re-rolling Maps
Once you’ve played through a map, you’ll want to re-roll it. Remnant: From the Ashes is all about repeating content once you’ve finished the story campaign gameplay, so if you’re not into that type of gameplay, then this isn’t the game for you. Re-rolling the maps allows for several things while your character still advances. Bosses and items reset, allowing for a chance to get new items and more experience, as well as giving you random dungeons to fight bosses that you may not have fought before or to explore spaces you may not have seen yet.
Gameplay Tip: Secret Traits
There are tons of secret traits in Remnant, From the Ashes, including this one. Another one that I’ll show below is the suspicion trait. There are a total of 40 traits in Remnant: From the Ashes that each can be upgraded to level 20. Traits are essential to be able to advance with specialties in the game since they are, along with your equipment, going to help you survive.
Gameplay Tip: Learn to Neutral Dodge
The neutral dodge. This has got to be the best dodge in any game. Are you wearing heavy armor? This is your lifesaver. The heavier the armor, the longer it takes for you to dodge, and the more stamina it takes. You can neutral dodge by just hitting the dodge key and not pushing any particular direction. I’ve found this to be my saving grace in many a situation when wearing heavier armor against bosses- or any mob for that matter. It’s especially helpful when you’re in those rooms where you can fall into a bottomless pit of death if you accidentally dodge off the edge. Remnant: from the Ashes includes enemies that are no joke, so this will quickly become your signature move.
Whether you’re playing Remnant: From the Ashes to challenge yourself or just to have fun with friends, Gunfire Games did a great job with its complexity, gameplay, story, and overall breadth of scope on what you can do and how many hours you can put into it.
