How to get secret items

Since Remnant: from the Ashes just came out, we’re not 100% sure these are all of the secret item locations, as we explore the game fully we’ll keep this article up to date. As of now we’ve covered a total of 39 Remnant secret item locations.

Note – since Remnant maps are procedurally generated, some players won’t find the item at the set location, though the same principle of how to get the item applies and you’ll just need to scout a bit more. The secret items will spawn within a set “zone”.

Also worth mentioning is that some secrets don’t spawn for everyone as each world is different. An easy trick to getting secret items fast is to join a co-op session of someone who has a certain secret that you need and you can get it that way.

Magnum Revolver (secret handgun) Location

To get the powerful Magnum Revolver you’ll need to find a Strange Coin and bring it to Ace (in Ward 13), you’ll also be rewarded with 300 Scrap.

The Strange Coin can be found near the end of the first dungeon dropped next to a corpse. Alternate coin location – dungeon between Westside and Artery.

Pocket Watch (secret amulet) Location

The Pocket Watch is currently the rarest item in the game as it is incredibly powerful due to the Stamina regeneration and Stamina cost reduction. To get the Pocket Watch you have to find the NPC Mud Tooth in the crashed helicopter, talk to him until you exhaust his dialogue options.

The NPC Mud Tooth always spawns in a crashed helicopter, which is reported to spawn in the zone immediately after you’ve completed the first dungeon. In case you didn’t get the helicopter spawn, you can re-roll the world and try again.

Twisted Idol (secret amulet) Location

To receive the Twisted Idol you’ll have to kill the Wailing Tree. Doing so is easy as a pistol is enough. But be careful, when the tree gets damaged it will spawn enemies. The Wailing Tree will start talking in an alien language once you get near it. If you wear the Twisted Mask to talk to the Tree it will award you with the Bark Skin Trait (see below). Note that after you’ve killed the tree there will be no way of getting Bark Skin, so get it beforehand.

Wailing Tree is located in the Wailing Wood zone (you can use the checkpoint to travel there).

Bark Skin Trait Location

To get the Bark Skin Trait you’ll need to speak to the Wailing Tree. To do so, you’ll have to wear the Twisted Mask, after talking to it you’ll get the Bark Skin perk.

  1. I don’t see Akari Armour or Scavenger Trait:

    I don’t know if this is a guaranteed spawn but on Rhom, in the dungeons you can find a glowing rod (which has a red glow and is a key item). For me, near Wud, was a dungeon which was a vault, at the end it had 3 chambers which could be opened with a glowing key and each containing a piece of the Akari set.

    Has the set bonus “Perfect dodging an attack increases crit chance by 15/30/50% for 10 seconds”

    For Scavenger trait, on earth in a dungeon you can find a “Tarnished Ring”, if you go back to Reggie (item vendor) in Ward 13 and ask him about his story, he will mention losing a ring. This gives you a prompts to give him the tarnished ring, and he will give you several hundred scrap and the scavenger trait (+2.5% scrap boost/level – unclear if this is a bonus to scrap value or chance to find scrap)

  2. i found the coin in the dungeon between westside and the artery, about halfway through. also found the drifter helm in one of the sewers in the starting area, but that was before i went back for the rest of the suit in the secret room.

  3. The pocket watch comes from mudtooth after listening to his stories, brabus is a boss enemy that once you have the watch will recognize the watch and ask you to hand it over to him. I was in multiplayer at the time and didnt see the choices to be made. But we refused and ended up fighting him and getting the grenade shot mod.

  4. Beam rifle is on rhom, there will be a door that you’ll have to open with waves of enemies spawning. Once the door opens, the beam rifle will be on the pedestal

  5. leto’s amulet in first swear dungeon before you fight the first boss there is a wall that says “only the penitent man my pass” squat and walk to the wall and you can pass through it the amulet is in there

  6. Petrified Maul

    Very powerful early melee weapon. Does stun on smash attacks and knockbacks.
    Get it when you fight the Ent and blow it’s legs off before killing it.

  7. Assault Rifle

    After the Root Mother, once you get to Westcourt, you may find a dungeon that looks like a big doorway underneath a building. It’s Called Sorrow’s Field. Look around as much as you can before you get to the end and you should find an item called “Monkey’s Key” take that to the door at the end of the dungeon to unlock it and get the Assault Rifle

  8. the particle accelerator is in fact not gotten by killing the boss when he uses the beam. Rather its by ensuring that none of the adds are caught in his attack (its the attack that lifts you up into the air while the platform rotates) and thus absorbed.

  9. Do the overworld maps change?

    If not, then I can precisely describe where I found the Lucky coin, which was on a raised balcony after the wall with the tower you can hop down off of to get across aforementioned wall after climbing the tower. Right after you fight through the streets and run into the the locked gate with the checkpoint behind it.

    It’s about half of the way between the entrance to the zone, and the place where the first dungeon spawned for me.

    If the overworld is procedurally generated, then yeah, not a help, but in that case, basically between the place where you pick up the key card, and the dungeon with the Shroud boss in it.

  10. I don’t see the Chicago Typewriter in this article, so here it is now.
    It’s a LMG type weapon with a mag of 80 rounds. It can be gotten by completing the Land’s End event where you need to survive a Root attack while protecting 2 women called Liz. If both survive they’ll give you a key by talking to them and that key unlocks a room where you will find the gun.
