How to get the Ritualist Scythe in Remnant 2

To get the Ritualist Scythe in Remnant 2, explore the Forgotten Commune area in The Awakened King DLC, find the Scythe Blade and the Scythe Hilt items, and combine them. If you haven’t unlocked this area yet, here’s how to access the Remnant 2 DLC. With this covered, let’s see how to find each of the items.

How to find the Scythe Blade

To find the Scythe Blade, explore the Forgotten Commune and keep an eye out for blue candles on the ground. Follow their trail and you’ll find a big altar with bodies on it, surrounded by more of these candles. You must attack and destroy the altar, as well as any mobs that spawn and come towards you to get the Scythe Blade.

Keep in mind that the Altar will spawn multiple groups of enemies, so make sure you’re prepared by checking out our best acid build guide in Remnant 2.

How to find the Scythe Hilt

To find the Scythe Hilt in Remnant 2, continue the Forgotten Commune dungeon and you’ll spot more blue candles as well as a second altar. The process here is the same. Attack the altar and defeat any enemies that spawn from it.

Once the altar is destroyed, you’ll find the Scythe Hilt. Keep in mind that you’re not done yet. You must now access your inventory and find the Scythe Blade item. Inspect it until you get an interact option, which will allow you to combine it with the Scythe Hilt. This will allow you to craft the Ritualist Scythe in Remnant 2.

Remnant 2 Ritualist Scythe stats

The Ritualist Scythe starts with the following stats:

  • 5% Critical Hit Damage
  • +100% Weak Spot Damage
  • -19% Stagger Modifier

Additionally, it has the Reaver ability, which increases melee damage by 10% when the target has a negative status effect. Overall, it’s an ideal weapon for the new Ritualist class as they synergize perfectly.

To summarize, you can get the Remnant 2 Ritualist Scythe by combining the Scythe Blade with the Scythe Hilt. Both these items are located in the new DLC area, the Forgotten Commune. Once you get both items, inspect the Blade from your inventory and you’ll be able to combine it with the hilt and craft the final Scythe. This weapon is a great addition to a strong Ritualist build.
