Remnant II offers an absolutely staggering number of secrets to uncover across multiple biomes, giving you ample reasons to play through them time and time again. But no matter how many times you play through the space wasteland of N’Erud, you’re unlikely to run across one of the game’s best-hidden secrets: an item that will let you unlock the Engineer archetype. Here’s where to find it.
How to unlock the Engineer archetype in Remnant II
The item you’ll need to find to unlock the Engineer archetype–the Alien Device–can only be found in the second overworld of N’Erud, so you’ll need to progress through a bit of the biome before you’ll be able to begin your search.
When you’ve reached The Eon Vault or Timeless Horizon, you’ll have a tedious search ahead of you. In order to find the Alien Device, you’ll have to travel around the outer realm of the area looking for a very specific spot in the fog that houses the secret. Of course, if you’ve spent any time on N’Erud, you know this fog is immensely difficult to see through, and spending any time in it will cause you to get sick and die very quickly.
Starting from your spawning point, circle around the entire map’s edges while staying just outside of the fog so as to remain safe. We’re looking for a section just inside the fog that has a short cliff on the left and a bunch of tall, spiky rocks on the right, with a section between them you can enter.
You’re looking for this area in the fog.
We’re entering the fog here, but keep in mind you’ll only be able to see a small part of the area. Once you find the spot, the Alien Device will be sitting in the middle of the rocks. Be careful not to get too close, as the device is very dangerous and will kill you if you touch it.
Once you’ve found the Alien Device, you’ll be able to unlock the Engineer archetype and start building the powerful machines that will help you survive in the harsh world of Remnant II.
