Gearbox Publishing and developer Gunfire Games shared a new trailer for Remnant II introducing its “Challenger” archetype.
“When you want to stare death directly in the face and laugh, it’s time for the CHALLENGER,” the video teases. “In Remnant 2, the Challenger Archetype is THE close to mid-range destroyer. They intimidate their enemies with their mere presence and administer brutal ranged and melee damage to anyone foolish enough to cross their path.”
