How to get the Sparkfire Shotgun in Remnant 2

To get the Sparkfire Shotgun in Remnant 2, head towards the lighthouse through the bridge, and at the first turn, before reaching the lighthouse, turn left to access the basement. Interact with the Lighthouse Key in your inventory to change its shape and use it to unlock the door in front of you. Behind this door, you’ll find the Sparkfire Shotgun.

Just make sure to interact with the key from your inventory first to change its form, otherwise, you won’t be able to open the door. Also, you can use the Lighthouse Key to get a second DLC item, the Lighthouse Ring. However, you should only go for the Lighthouse Ring after the Sparkfire Shotgun. Otherwise, the key will disappear after getting the ring.

To get the Lighthouse Ring, head back to the lighthouse bridge where you came from and, instead of turning left, go straight toward the lighthouse. Head up the main stairs and you’ll find another locked door. Interact with the key to transform it back to its original shape. Now, you can use the key to unlock this door, behind which you’ll find the Lighthouse Keeper’s Ring on your left.

If you open the upper door first before getting the shotgun, you will lose the key and won’t be able to get the shotgun. However, you can fix this by defeating the two enemies again, as they’ll drop the Lighthouse Key multiple times.

In conclusion, to get the Sparkfire Shotgun in Remnant 2, get the Lighthouse Key from the two mini-bosses across the lighthouse, interact with it to change its form, and use it to unlock the door in the lighthouse basement. Then, you can interact with the key again and use it to open the door on the top of the lighthouse, which will grant you the Lighthouse Keeper’s Ring.
