Once that was done, the class was unlocked for all players, no matter their level or progress.The Archon is a melee class that uses a variety of abilities to deal damage and control the battlefield. Its signature move is a powerful beam that can damage multiple enemies at once, and it also has a variety of crowd control abilities that can keep enemies at bay.”
Rumors of a top-secret Archon archetype were rife since Remnant 2 released the other week, but it took skilled dataminers and a hint from a developer to unlock the game’s 11th class. As revealed by Remnant 2’s principal designer, the archetype was designed to be found by dataminers–because if you can’t stop people from doing it, why not leave a fun secret for them instead?
Remnant 2 has 11 classes in total, with some available from the start of the game, and others locked behind in-game challenges of varying difficulties. The Archon archetype was an outlier, as dataminers had found evidence it existed in the game files, but couldn’t figure out all the steps to unlock it.
While many players theorized that the Archon archetype was locked by the developers and would be released down the track, Gunfire Games developer Ben Cureton took to Twitter to encourage the fans investigating the Archon’s mysteries to keep going, saying: “To unlock the Archon in Remnant 2, one must penetrate the code itself.”
