The Remnant 2 PS5 patch notes for the 1.000.006 update are here. They detail the first significant update to the game on Sony’s console. Coming in at 1.762GB, the August 8 drop adds a number of tweaks to the sequel to From the Ashes. They include optimizations, quality-of-life (QoL) improvements, bug fixes, and Archetype balances. It also addresses bugged-out trophies, though there’s no retroactive solution right now.
Remnant 2 PS5 Patch Notes (1.000.006)
Here are the (meaty) Remnant 2 PS5 patch notes for the 1.000.006 update on August 8. I’m especially happy to see tweaks to boss attacks and damage, as well as changes to weakspot modifiers. It’s also heartening to know Tomes of Knowledge will now grant Scrap appropriately for those that have hit the Trait Point (TP) cap. Even better, the Explorer’s armor should now appear at Whispers in Ward 13. That’s something I would have killed for after beating the game myself and going after Archon.
–Performance and Crashes-
– Initial optimizations to improve overall performance.
– Updates to improve hitching and potential crashes.
– Fixed multiple reported crash bugs.
–Quality of Life–
QOL OVERVIEW: While we still have quite a few things we are working on regarding Traits and long-term grinding (for those that wish to partake), we wanted to make a few changes in this patch to ensure players had more freedom to experiment. Players should find it much easier to Respec and they should also end up with more Scrap overall. We aren’t done here by any means, and these are not the larger changes we’ve mentioned on Discord and Reddit, but in the short term, they should help to ease the burden or reconfiguring your build and experimenting with different options.
– Increased Trait Cap by +5.
– Tome of Knowledge now grants Scrap and EXP when the player has reached Trait Cap.
– Orb of Undoing now has unlimited uses. Players can sell any extras for Scrap.
– Removed the Trait Requirement for equipping a second Archetype. Players may now slot their second Archetype as soon as they obtain / convert another Engram at Wallace.
– Removed the Scrap Cost for converting a Mysterious Item into an Engram (1000 to 0).
– Lowered the Lumenite Cost for converting a Mysterious Item into an Engram (10 to 5).
– Slightly Increased Scrap Gain from Breakables.
– Increased Scrap Gain from Regular and Rare Chests.
– Increased Scrap Gain when killing Aberrations.
– Reduced the cost of Bloodroot.
[ Archetypes ]
– Increased the duration of Explorer’s Scavenger Buff per pickup from 15s to 20s.
– Increased the duration of Explorer’s Gold Digger Buffs from 15s to 20s.
– Increased the healing amount of Gold Digger Healing Fountain from 1.5 to 2.0 HP per second.
DEV NOTE: We wanted to make sure Explorer could maintain Scavenger longer between fights and give them more freedom while Gold Digger Fountains were active. We increased the durations by 5s each and boosted the Healing Fountain to be more enticing.
– Increased Archon Havoc Form Lighting Hands damage from 28 to 56.
– Increased Archon Havoc Form Blink damage from 100 to 150.
– Reduced Archon Havoc Form Cooldown from 120s to 90s.
DEV NOTE: These changes are in response to bug fix that allowed Havoc Form Lighting Hands to deal ridiculous damage. We made some overall adjustments to compensate.
– Adjusted the damage falloff for Challenger’s Close Quarters perk. At maximum range, Challenger will always maintain a 10% damage bonus to All Damage.
– Increased the Handler’s Pack Hunter Range from 25m to 40m.
– Increased the Base Max Health of Handler’s Very Good Boy Companion.
– Increased the Base Max Health of Summoner’s Hollow and Flyer Variants.
[ Weapons ]
– Switched Aphelion scaling to Boss/Special Damage Scaling instead of Standard.
– Increased the Fire Damage for Shatterstar (Savior Mod).
– Reduced the Fire Rate on Nightfall in Standard and Dreadwalker Fire Modes.
DEV NOTE: Nightfall was dealing far more damage than other weapons in both modes (almost 20% more w/ Dreadwalker active compared to other guns with their Mod active). When considering damage and the Mod ability (harder to hit, life siphon, and fire rate), it was pushing Nightfall too far above every other Long Gun. It now sits closer in line with other high-damage weapons.
– Reduced the AOE Burst Damage of Enigma’s Overload Application from 40 to 30.
– Reduced the Subsequent Tether Damage of Enigma Primary Fire from 75% to 65%.
– Reduced the Magazine Capacity of Enigma from 30 to 25.
– Increased the total Reserve Capacity of Enigma from 120 to 125.
DEV NOTE: Enigma was performing too far above our goal for AOE clear, so a few adjustments were made. There is still an issue with it ignoring Armor which will be addressed in the future. However, when that happens, we will reevaluate the numbers.
[ Enemies ]
– Reduced damage on Nightweaver’s grab attacks (Wall and Lunge).
– Adjusted the hitbox of Magister Dullain’s tongue attack to better match the visuals.
[ Multiplayer ]
– Reduced incoming damage in Multiplayer from 25% per additional player to 15% per player.
[ Progression & Rewards ]
– Fixed multiple reported crash bugs and instability issues.
– Progression Blocker: Fixed an issue that prevented players from completing the tutorial if a crash happened when interacting with Ford.
– Progression Blocker: Fixed infinite loading screen issue present for some players when selecting “Skip Tutorial” on character creation screen.
– Progression Blocker: Fixed an issue with Plasma Cutter preventing the Final Boss from transitioning into its second phase.
– Progression Blocker: Fixed Tal’Ratha boss fight lockout if game was exited during cutscene dialogue.
– Progression Blocker: Fixed the Astropath boss fight failing to start if game was exited during cutscenes.
– Addressed issue with Trait points going negative. Negative Trait points have been flipped to positive. This will also fix issues with the Second Archetype being locked out.
– Addressed issue with players not receiving trophys in multiplayer games.
DEV NOTE: This will not retroactively reward ones that should have been previously unlocked. In future patches we will look into attempting to retroactively award as many as we can, however some will likely not be able to be awarded this way and will need to be reacquired.
– Players who completed Oracle’s quilt will now receive Half Quilt award as well as Full Quit Reward if they had not previously received it.
– Fixed an issue where scripted deaths from the Bone Harvester, Empress Guards, and Red Prince caused actual deaths and ended Hardcore runs.
– Fixed an issue with Weapons not unlocking after a Hardcore playthrough.
DEV NOTE: Unfortunately, hardcore awards will not be retroactively awarded for previous completions of Hardcore mode.
– Fixed an issue with Weapons not unlocking after completing playthroughs at different difficulties.
DEV NOTE: Unfortunately, difficulty-based rewards will not be retroactively awarded for previous completions of the game.
– Players who listened to all Mudtooth’s stories but did not receive all of the rewards can visit Mudtooth to receive their rewards. Players who did not receive the Iron Cylinder (Gunslinger’s Engram) from listening to all his stories will now find it in his store.
– Fixed an issue preventing Explorer and Archon Armor from appearing on the vendor. Players will need to first convert the appropriate Mysterious Item into an Engram at Wally
– Fixed an issue preventing Mudtooth’s Elixir from appearing in his inventory. After completing the game, players will need to first unlock Explorer (Golden Compass) at Wallace.

Fixes to trophies are good, and the Remnant 2 PS5 patch notes detail some I or friends have yet to get! And I’m glad Gunfire has addressed them here. It’s just a bummer they won’t be retroactively applied to a Remnant 2 playthrough. That’s a fact further underscored by a recent R2 AMA with Gunfire Games’ Game Director, David Adams.
There, he responded to a question about trophies a few days ahead of the Remnant 2 PS5 patch notes drop on August 8. He said the team is looking into bugged trophies, but the solutions to that problem likely won’t be retroactive. Here’s what he had to say in response to user ArcasTheel:
We fixed the underlying issue with the trophy/achievement system. But this patch won’t fix the actual trophies. We actually can’t retroactively give trophies on PS5, but we will do something in a subsequent patch where if you just pick up one more weapon (or trait), for instance, it will award the trophy. In short, we will do our best to make people whole.David Adams, Game Director, Remnant 2
Anecdotally, it seems that some of the bugged trophies are now starting to pop for players. A friend of mine received Proving Grounds following the 1.000.006 PS5 update by leveling up his Archon. I’ve heard of some others having success, as well. Fingers crossed for those trophy hunters out there.
Those are the full details for the Remnant 2 PS5 patch notes (update 1.000.006). For more on the game, such as puzzle solutions, walkthroughs, build tips, and much, much more, head over to our R2 guides hub.
