The materials in Remnant 2 come from the many locations you explore as you progress through the game. Some of them are much more common than others, where you’ll find select ones from defeating specific enemies, and others are found just laying on the ground in the world. The materials you find on the ground have to do with the world’s overall power level, which should be reflected on your character’s overall power level.

These are all of the materials you can find while playing Remnant 2, and where you can locate them.
