If you’re the type to be a completionist when playing games, then Remnant 2 will give you more than enough content to dig through. There’s a whole bunch of rings you can snag to add some passive buffs, amulets to apply even bigger buffs, and all sorts of armor sets that help define how your Archetype moves and feels. Weapons are easily the second biggest secret you can find, second only to Archetypes. Here’s how to get the Starkiller rifle in Remnant 2.

Where to Find the Starkiller Rifle in Remnant 2

The Starkiller rifle requires you to visit Brabus and purchase it from his shop. That is if you’ve completed a run on Apocalypse difficulty. To do that, you’ll first need to complete Remnant 2 once. That can be done with any difficulty, but we suggest you do it on Nightmare to prepare for the challenge that Apocalypse offers. Once you’ve done that, jump in and be ready for a serious challenge on Apocalypse. You may want to bring a friend along for this, plus a heavily perfected character build.

Once you’ve completed your Apocalypse run, speak with Brabus, and you’ll be able to purchase the Starkiller rifle. It’ll set you back a decent bit of Scrap, though after completing the game a few times, you’ll likely have enough saved up.

What Does the Starkiller Rifle Do?

At its core, the Starkiller is a long-range rifle with a 2.5x magnification scope, making it ideal for sitting back and picking off targets. Its slow fire rate but high damage make it ideal for chunkier targets like bosses. Where it truly begins to shine, though, is the mod, Gravity Core. This mod sends out an orb that drags in the world around it and deals consistent damage. Once it impacts an object, it’ll create a considerably larger gravity well. When it finishes, it’ll deal 250 damage within 10m. 200 damage is added with every enemy, with all enemies taking an equal amount of divided damage. This means it won’t deal 1050 damage to all targets if they’re all in the well; it’ll deal around 200 each.
