Let’s quickly look at how to unlock the Invader archetype in Remnant 2. One feature that is getting extensive praise from the players is the archetype system, which allows for high customisation and builds variety. So far, six secret archetypes have been discovered in the game, including the latest Invader class.

Invader is one of the strongest archetypes in Remnant 2, with elusive skills that are perfect for distracting enemies and catching them off guard. They can create decoys to help out their teammates or escape a tricky situation. Besides, with armour as cool as Invader’s, you don’t want to miss out on this secret archetype.

How to unlock Invader Archetype in Remnant 2

In order to unlock and use the Invader archetype, you need to obtain an item known as the Wooden Shiv, located in Root Earth, the final area of the game. Once you have this item, talk to Wallace and convert the Wooden Shiv into the Serrated Root Blade Engram, which can be equipped to use the Invader archetype.

Now that you know the item required to unlock the Invader archetype, let’s see how to find it.

How to get the Wooden Shiv and unlock the Invader Archetype

Getting the Wooden Shiv in Remnant 2 takes a lot of time and patience. Let’s break the entire path into small and easy-to-follow steps, so you know exactly what you’re supposed to do.

  • First of all, reroll your campaign until you get Morrow Parish as your starting zone in Losomn. It is best to do it in the Adventure mode.
  • Once you get to Morrorw Parish, follow the campaign and make your way to the Morrow Sanatorium.
  • Morrow Sanatorium has a prison cell with an NPC locked inside. Find the three Stone-Carved Dolls in the area and the Prison Cell Key. The key is located on the top floor of the Sanatorium.

  • Then go talk to the NPC inside the prison cell. Give them the three dolls and unlock the prison doll to find the Nightweaver Stone Doll inside.
  • Keep following the main objective until you reach the Tormented Asylum, which can be accessed using the portal at the bottom of the Sanatorium.
  • Interact with the cobweb inside the Tormented Asylum cell and offer it the Nightweaver Stone Doll. In return, you will receive the Dreamcatcher melee weapon.

  • Once you have the Dreamcatcher weapon, you need to progress the campaign until you get to Root Earth, the final area in the game. From there, make your way into the cargo ship in Corrupted Harbor.
  • Find a room inside the cargo ship with a secret exit at the bottom. Drop down the exit to reach an open area and clear out the enemies.
  • Attack the fog creature in the area using Dreamcatcher to get the Walker’s Dream item.
