A complete achievement guide for Remnant: From the Ashes, including the 2 DLC’s. Everything is categorized, organized and formatted for your convenience in hopes of helping you on your 100% journey.
Approximate Time to Complete: 60 – 80 h – [howlongtobeat.com]
Number of Achievements: 50
Story: 40 | DLC: 10
1. Play through the game and DLC’s
You don’t have to worry about any achievements in your first playthrough. You will have to replay many sections regardless because of the RNG. Be mindful of any missable achievements under “Specific” and “DLC: Subject 2923”. Consider playing on Hard to collect some Glowing Fragments along the way, since they only drop on Hard difficulty. Just take your time, visit every location and enjoy the game!
2. Re-roll Campaigns or Adventure Modes
Clean up all the other achievements that you are missing. Re-roll campaign to get either “Undying, Eh?” or “Shot Through the Heart“, whichever one you missed. And keep re-rolling Adventure Modes for anything else. You can focus on doing any alternative boss kills along the way. You will likely encounter some new ones as well. You should have everything done except for Survival and armor skins.
3. Finish Survival
Kill 10 bosses in a row in Survival Mode. There are some tips you can find under “Dominator“. It is best to have this done with at least 1 other person. If you need people to play with, I’m sure you can find somebody by asking in Discussions – [steamcommunity.com] .
4. Grind for Glowing Fragments
You will have a good amount of Glowing Fragments already collected but you will likely need to grind for some more. You will need a total of 550 Glowing Fragments to unlock 40 armor skins. There is a good method of farming these under “Fashion is Danger“. You will again need a friend for this.
These are part of the story and unmissable.
Fade to White
Activate the Ward 13 World Stone
You will get this after completing the tutorial. Technically missable if you skip the tutorial.

All of these are world bosses – the boss you kill before moving to the next world. If you get one, you will miss another. For whatever is missing, keep doing Adventure Mode for the zone they are in until you get them.

Defeat the Dreamer (Secret)

Return ring to Reggie (Secret) (Missable)
You are looking for The Tarnished Ring that is a random spawn on Earth. You can re-roll the Adventure Mode until you find it. Deliver the ring to Reggie in Ward 13.
Not So Lucky
Return coin to Ace (Secret) (Missable)
The coin can be found randomly on Earth locations or from killing Earth enemies. You can re-roll the Adventure Mode until you find it. Deliver the coin to Ace in Ward 13.
Shot Through the Heart
Return the Swamp Guardian’s heart to the Undying King (Secret) (Missable)
After defeating Ixillis XV you will get a Swamp Guardian’s Heart. You will need to bring the heart back to the Undying King and not side with the Swamp Queen. This will void “Undying, Eh?” achievement. You will need to re-roll the campaign to get the missed achievement.
Defeat a world boss in offline mode without taking damage (Secret) (Missable)
You should go for this after you’ve finished the game and are fully upgraded, it will make the fight much easier. The easiest boss for this is Singe. Re-roll the Adventure Mode until you get him. You need to do it solo so make sure you are in offline mode.
Spec your build so you do the highest damage possible. Use potions that increase your stats like Icefruit, Houndmaster’s Jerky, Frenzy Dust, Adrenaline. I used a Sniper Rifle with Slayer armor set and summoner mods (Iron Sentinel & Beckon) and killed the boss within a minute. Another build relies more on summoner damage with Beckon, Swarm, and Cultist armor set. Another build is with Chicago Typewriter, Bandit armor set, Song of Swords and Explosive Shot mods.
There is also a way you can get this by skipping a boss fight. This can be done with Ravager at Yaesha, by ringing the bells in the correct order. I have not tried it so I don’t know if it actually works. The correct order to shoot the bells is: 5-1-5-1-2-3-4-1. From where you enter the room – close right is 1, close left is 2, center is 3, far left is 4, far right is 5.
DLC: Swamps of Corsus
Fall of the Iskal
Defeat the Iskal Queen (Secret) (Missable)
If you do not get her in your playthrough, re-roll Adventure Mode on Corsus until you do.
Defeat 5 Bosses in a row in Survival Mode
Defeat 10 Bosses in a row in Survival Mode
This will be the hardest achievement to get. You can’t save progress in Survival Mode so you have to do it in one go. You should of course be familiar with all the boss fights. Every third boss will be a world boss. Since some bosses are harder then others, you can only hope to get a good RNG. Here are some tips that I gathered that helped me:
- Disable Subject 2923 DLC. The bosses and dungeons are harder and the items are not worth it. To disable, right click the game > Properties > DLC.
- Play with at least one more person. Playing solo can be good because you get all the items and enemies are easier, but dying means insta wipe. Having somebody to revive you or take the aggro makes the run much easier. Playing with 2 people is also good but enemies will have more health so take that as you will.
- You should aim to be 2-3 levels above world level. Try to be fast and do not spend too much time looting. Split up with a friend to cover all areas, get the chests, kill all enemies for xp, but do not go on big detours if you don’t have to. If world level catches up to you around boss 8, you are still on good track.
- Focus on a build. Since gear you get is random you can only hope to get what you need, but try to make it work with what you find along the way. You can also restart if you don’t find some good weapons at the beginning.
My friend and I were running a summoner build with Iron Sentinel turrets, Seed Caller or Beckon if you are lucky to get those bosses. They would do a lot of damage even to bosses and take aggro most of the time. You can buy some Invoker traits from the shop to increase summoner damage. I was running a Sniper Rifle with a Magnum Revolver and Slayer armor set. The pistol would one shot most enemies. My friend was running Chicago Typewriter or Beam Rifle. Those are all top tier guns along with Assault Gun, Coach Gun, Spitfire, Submachine Gun.
For the armor sets you should consider: Cultist, Labyrinth, Twisted, Slayer, Hunter, Void. You can also mix and match. Try not to have armor encumbrance above medium so that you can dodge better.
- Around boss 6-7, consider buying some potions that last an hour to increase your stats. Stuff like Mudtooth’s Tonic and Stew or Houndmaster’s Jerky or Icefruit. Also have at least one of each potion to remove status effects: rot, radiation, corrosion, shock, bleed.
- 6-8 dragon hearts is more than enough. Don’t hesitate to heal even when at around 60% health during boss fights. An unexpected combo can quickly take you out.
- And finally hope to not get many hard bosses, or if you do, that they are at the beginning while they are easier. May the RNG gods be with you!
Purchase 15 Armor Skins
Fashion is Danger
Purchase 40 Armor Skins
This will be the grindiest achievement to get. You should go for it after Survival since you will get good amount of Glowing Fragments from there. You will need 550 Glowing Fragments in total to get 40 armor skins. Buy all the helmets and pants first as they are cheaper and finish off with chest pieces that you want.
This is the best method for farming these. You need at least 1 more person but best with 2 for increased chances. Everybody re-rolls Adventure Mode on Corsus until you find a tower-like cave (image below). You are looking for Fetid Pools dungeon that has 1 in 5 chances of spawning inside that cave. If you get anything else you quit and re-roll the world. Explore just the initial Corsus area for the tower. If you do not find it, quit and re-roll. If you see a tower that is inaccessible from the door that needs to be opened from the other side, there will always be another tower that you can enter. There will be many runs with no towers or wrong dungeons but this is definitely the fastest method.
Once a person finds Fetid Pools, everyone joins their game. You are looking for a Rusted Amulet that spawns randomly in the dungeon. Once you find it go to the middle open area of the dungeon where there are pools of acid. ONLY ONE person equips the amulet and crouches around in the pool until they get Acid Cleansed Key. With that key, go to the north of the dungeon where there is a checkpoint and a bunch of doors. Open the door to the right-middle, that leads upstairs. Then the second person dips in the pool of acid to get another key. With the second key you go through the open door and open the right-most door that has 25 Glowing Fragments. One person can wait by the pools while the other opens the doors, to speed up the process. Exit and re-roll.
For a solo method, you can keep re-rolling Adventure Modes on Hard (Fragments only drop on Hard) or replaying Survival. Glowing Fragments will drop from random special enemies and bosses. Higher difficulties will net more Fragments. Alternatively, you can use the same method with Fetid Pools but it will take much longer. You obtain the Rusted Amulet but DO NOT convert it to Acid Cleansed Key. You re-roll the Adventure Mode and find Fetid Pools again. DO NOT pick up a new Rusted Amulet yet, instead convert your old one, open the first door, pick up the second amulet, convert it, and open the second door. Both of these are much grindier methods.
DLC: Subject 2923
Girl in the Snow
Travel to Reisum (Secret)
Defeat the Final Boss
Listen to all the Recordings in Ward Prime
If you are playing with others, only the host will get the achievement. Video guide below (credit goes to original creator).
Visit the Homestead Basement (Secret) (Missable)
You are looking for a randomly spawned location called Homestead. It will be a second checkpoint in the first area of the DLC. If you do not get it, you will need to re-roll the campaign. Progress though the game as normal until you get to Ward Prime. The key for the basement will be on the shelf in the main bay. Checkpoint back to the Homestead, where the basement door will be hidden behind a breakable shelf in the house. Video guide below (credit goes to original creator).
Make a Deal with Sebum (Secret) (Missable)
You are looking for a Packmaster’s Tusk that is a random drop in one of the snow locations. It drops from a special Packmaster Yeti. If you do not find it, re-roll Adventure Mode until you do. You are then looking for Frieran Sea location. If you find Frieran Sea first, the Tusk will always be somewhere else and vice versa. At Frieran Sea, DO NOT talk to Sebum yet. Instead go to the left of the ship, through breakable boxes, where you will interact with armor that you see through the crack in the ship. Go back to Sebum and talk to him. Mention the armor below when prompted. Trade the Tusk for the armor. Go below though unlocked door to get the armor.
These are some useful resources that can help you with more information, detailed boss guides and locations of all the obtainable traits, rings, amulets, armor, weapons and weapon mods.
