There are countless hidden items to find in Remnant 2, and one of those is the Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter found in the secret Ward 13 Portal. To get there, however, you’ll need to complete the Labyrinth to the end. The locked door leading to the weapon’s location is well concealed within the world’s twisting stone mazes. It also requires the Biome Portal Key to access, which you get from an NPC after finishing the area. You’ll also get The Agenda trophy and achievement for finding Leto’s Stash.

How to Get the Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter in Remnant 2

You can only get the Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter in Remnant 2 after finding the secret Ward 13 portal. And you can only find that after beating the Labyrinth boss and reaching the end of the area. After watching the cutscene at the end of the Labyrinth, and with the Biome Portal Key in-hand, return to the Fractured Ingress World Stone in the Labyrinth. Here are the precise steps to take to get the Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter in the secret Ward 13 portal.

From the Fractured Ingress World Stone, go up the staircase on the right. There’s another small staircase in front of you with enemies floating above it. Don’t go that way. Instead, turn right, and go through the passageway.

Follow that as it turns left into an open area with an Elite and stone bridges that build themselves as you approach them. Go behind the portal at the end, then look over the cliff’s edge and jump through a portal below. On the other side, go through the portal on the left (up the set of stairs). On the other side, go through a narrow passageway on the left, then turn left once you go through it.

On your left, you’ll see stone platforms jutting out from the wall. Climb up and jump over these to ascend the wall. I didn’t think I could make some of the jumps because they seemed too far, but your character can catch the ledges easily. At the top, you’ll see a small square opening that you can crouch walk through.

On the other side, you’ll see the portal below you. Don’t drop down. Instead, turn right and climb up another block. You’ll see an opening to your left; it’s at an angle across from you, above the portal. Jump across. I’ve fallen here and taken fall damage, so be aware that could happen if you miss. Follow the path through the wall to a door on the other side with a gold glow. Use the Biome Portal key, and go through it — the secret Ward 13 portal.

Back in Ward 13, you’ll be on the other side of the glass from where you find the Submachine Gun from Ford’s chest. The Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter is on a box on the right side in the open. Inspect the crate (Leto’s Stash) in the shipping container to the left of the Chicago Typewriter to get the Leto Mark II armor set and pop The Agenda trophy and achievement. Use Liquid Escape to make it back to the World Stone in the Labyrinth.

Even with a +9 XMG57 “Bonesaw,” I really like the Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter. For starters, it’s fully automatic like the Bonesaw, but it has a much faster reload time. It doesn’t overheat, either. Despite a smaller magazine size, it can carry more ammo than the Bonesaw, and its weak spot damage is better. It also only starts two damage points lower than the XMG57, meaning it’s a viable option, at least through the mid-game. And it has better accuracy.

That’s how to get the Tommy Gun Chicago Typewriter in Remnant 2, as well as how to find the secret Ward 13 portal.
