While some materials in Remnant 2 have a clear use, others can be a little more confusing. Some are very broad such as Iron, which is used in upgrading equipment, while others, like boss rewards, are used for one thing at one point in time. One specific material has to be purchased, though its use can be a little confusing at first. Here’s how to get the Old Whistle in Remnant 2.

To get the Old Whistle in Remnant 2, you’ll need to visit Mudtooth in Ward 13. He can be found back within the shops area, down the path toward the docks. When you speak to him, he may not immediately let you see his wares. You might need to initiate a few bits of dialogue first. Once you can access his shop, you’ll find the Old Whistle available for 1500 Scrap. Purchase that, and it’ll be yours.

Now that you have the Old Whistle, you might be wondering what to do with it. With it in your inventory, head to Wallace out by the docks of Ward 13. With five Lumenite Crystals, 1000 more Scrap, and the Old Whistle, he’ll be able to craft the Silent Whistle Engram. This unlocks the Handler Archetype for you, one of the first Archetypes available in Remnant 2.

What is the Handler Archetype?

The Handler is a solo-oriented Archetype, though it can easily be run in co-op play as well. The Handler has a Dog companion that can do things from taking enemy attention away from you, healing those nearby, and dealing some decent damage to foes. If you have the Handler equipped as your Prime Archetype, the Dog can also revive you instead of your teammates needing to. As you can see, incredible for playing alone.
