Post-apocalyptic nightmare games are almost always a blast. Seeing a world after it’s collapsed, fighting off monsters, outlasting fellow survivors; they’re all part of the wondrously dark fantasy that surrounds the apocalypse. Remnant: From the Ashes keeps these themes going. Survival depends on the player and the character though. Here’s how to survive by choosing the best Remnant: From the Ashes characters.
Remnant: From the Ashes Characters | Who is the best character?
As is ever popular today, Remnant: From the Ashes allows for some degree of character creation. When players first load up the game, they’ll be presented with a fairly standard character creation screen. Players are first treated to a cosmetically-based character design screen. Sex, skin color, hair color, and style are all options that players can set to set to create their characters appearance.
Really, it doesn’t matter much what Remnant: From the Ashes characters look like. The big deciding factor in the game’s experience comes after a few minutes of gameplay. After fighting through a tutorial-esque introduction, players are given the choice between 3 different archetypes.
First up is the Scrapper. The Scrapper is for players that enjoy getting up-close, bloody, and personal with their enemies. This archetype utilizes a scrap hammer, a shotgun, and a repeating pistol. Also, they have a mod known as Hot Shot that provides a small chance of lighting enemies on fire when shooting.
The Ex-Cultist is focused on a medium-ranged playstyle. It’s the perfect archetype for players that can never decide between getting close or keeping some distance. The Ex-Cultists weapons highlight this. They come with a coach gun, a scrap hatchet, and a repeater pistol. They have an area healing ability called Mender’s Aura.
Lastly, the Hunter is essentially the game’s sniper class. The Hunter works best for players that enjoy keeping a good bit of distance between foes and themselves. They’re armed with a long range hunting rifle, a standard repeater pistol, and a scrap sword. Additionally, this archetype has Hunter’s Mark, a crit-increasing ability that can allow players to see enemies through walls.
