Remnant 2 Adds New Mutators, Weapons and Aberrations during Halloween Event

Remnant 2 Adds New Mutators, Weapons and Aberrations during Halloween Event

If you haven’t heard, Remnant 2 announced an in game Halloween event – Aberration Domination. “Defeat aberrations in-game and use their Corrupted Shards to craft corrupted versions of some special weapons.” This event will be live October 27th through Halloween on the 31st. However, if you can’t log on and play, don’t worry as Gunfire Games confirmed on X that the new items will be obtainable after the event is over. You will have a higher chance to see these aberrations and acquire these items during the event.

In addition to the Halloween event, Remnant 2 also released a huge patch on October 26th that fixed many bugs and performance issues (especially for co-op). This patch also adds LOADOUTS to Remnant 2, which is probably the most requested Quality of life feature!

Players can now create a gear preset and then recall it with a single button press. This includes Weapons, Mods, Mutators, Archetypes, Skills, Relics, Fragments, etc. Loadouts will also save and recall Traits but will only recall them if you have the Orb of Undoing in your inventory. Loadouts cannot be used in combat.

So what’s new? Here’s a list of all the new mutators

(may not be complete, but what we know so far!)
