Remnant 2 Corrupted Weapons: An Overview
Corrupted weapons are special weapons corrupted by an unknown force, giving them enhanced power.
Additionally, they are visually different from their original counterparts, having a dark and twisted appearance.
Players need original weapons to corrupt them, using a Simulacrum to restore them.
This doesn’t create separate weapons and retains the upgrade level when swapping to corrupted.
Similarly, when the weapon mod is active, it corrupts the player with a status effect.
The corrupted status effect reduces the player’s health regeneration and increases the damage taken from enemies.
