Remnant From The Ashes Guide to Unlocking Armor Sets

Remnant From The Ashes is not a very famous game, but there is a huge community that plays the game. It is a pretty challenging game even with friends, but that is what makes the game fun. Some of the bosses are only hard because of the smaller enemies hoarding you, but other than that, the game is really good. One huge part of the game that I didn’t even get into was the armor sets that you can get in the game. There are 15 different armor sets in the game and when I played, I didn’t even find any others besides the class armor sets. Here are all the armor sets in the game and where to find them:

Adventurer Set

  • Increases chance to get loot from destroying breakables. Increases the amount of scrap picked up by 10%.

All you have to do to get this armor is to just start a new game. This is the armor set you start with when you start a new character and is probably one of the worst sets in the game. Once you get your class armor, never use this armor again unless you want a challenge where you only use the starter armor for the entire game. Don’t make the mistake of not trying to get other armor sets because they help you a lot in the long-run.

The Set Bonus is actually very good on this though because you get more scrap from killing enemies. scrap is basically your way of upgrading pieces of armor so you could use it for farming scrap if you want to. If you equip a bracelet or necklace that boosts your scrap intake, then do that. Other than that, try to stick with another armor set.

Akari Set

  • Perfect dodging enemy attacks increases Movement, Firing, Melee, Reload, and evade speed for 7 seconds and increases crit chance by 15%.

This is a Set that you have to find out in the game world. There are 3 pieces to this set and they can all be found in the same place. They can be found at Rhom, in the Vault of the Herald. All you have to do to get them is find the Glowing Rod on the ground in multiple areas and open the secret vault door. Once it is opened, go into the room and collect your armor. It is not hard to get in, you just have to find a Glowing Rod and you basically have the whole set.

The Set Bonus is super helpful if you know how to dodge enemies’ attacks. You must have all three pieces of the armor set to activate the Set Bonus so keep that in mind. Also, the more you level up the Set, the faster your character will move. This armor set is very light and if you can dodge correctly, boosts your speed and damage for a short period of time.

Bomber Set

  • Increases the Range of the Teamwork trait

This is not really an armor set, it is just a hat. Basically, the only way to get this is if you pre-ordered the game on Prime Day, you would get this exclusive hat with the game automatically. It is not really that great and you don’t need this to get the Achievement for having all the Armor Sets. Don’t worry if you don’t have this because there are way better items to use later on.

Cultist’s Set

  • Hits generate additional mod power. Mod Power is generated slowly over time.

This is a set that you get from choosing the Ex-Cultist Archtype at the beginning of the game. There are 3 pieces to this armor and is important if you like using Mods in the game. If you like using the weapons without the mods, then this armor set is not for you. If you chose another class, you can purchase the armor from Rigs after you choose your class. The armor set is very light and agile so it does not have that much defense, but you can get out of situations very quickly.

The Set Bonus is actually very helpful if you like using Mods because it boosts the damage of basically any Mod that you have equipped. It does make it regenerate slower, but it has more of an impact when used against any enemy. Always look at the armor’s stats before you equip it so you can best fit your playstyle.

Drifter’s Set

  • Stamina usage is reduced. While aiming and standing, Movement Speed is increased by 25%.

This armor set is probably the most useful in my opinion because it dramatically reduces your stamina usage. Stamina is very important in the game because that is what you use to dodge and run away from danger. You are also faster when aiming down sights as well. To find this armor, you can find the helmet basically anywhere on Earth, and the other 2 pieces can be found at the Founder’s Hideout, behind the shelf next to the hanging corpse on the wall. It is very easy to get and a very important armor set to use.

Elder Set

  • Dragonhearts will heal allies within 30 meters for 50% base effectiveness and increases their damage dealt for 10 seconds.

This armor set is very important if you want to help your teammates. The set can be found on Yaesha, in Martyr’s Sanctuary. Basically, what you need to do is make your way through the fog gate, and survive the attack. Once completed, the Elder Set will be revealed to you. What is good about this set is that whenever you use a Dragonheart, if there is a teammate 15 meters away, it will heal them as well. This is important for team play. Use this armor to your advantage to help out your fellow players.

Hunter Set

  • Increases Ranged damage on targets greater than 10 meters away. Increases weakspot damage by 15%.

This is another Archtype armor ou get when you choose to be the Hunter class at the beginning of the game. There are 3 pieces to this armor set and it can be purchased from Rigs later on if you don’t already have this armor set. It is light, so it is easy to dodge, and you also have more damage on your guns. This armor set is for you if you like sniping and using your ranged weapons rather than the melee weapons.

You also have increased critical hit damage so you can do massive damage to any enemy you encounter if you have a good shot. Generally, you want to stay back and let the melee people take out most enemies while you take out the larger enemies with your guns. It is more offensive than defensive.

Heavy Plate Set

  • Reduces stagger on hit. Enemies targeting the hero take an additional 5% damage.

This armor set is found at Leto’s Laboratory, in the room with the Teleportation Chamber in it. After turning off the algorithm, repeatedly enter the teleportation chamber until you are teleported at random to a new room with burning skeletons. Here you will find Heavy Plate Helmet, along with the rest of the Heavy Plate Set. I am pretty sure you can only get this armor set when the Leto challenge is going on so if you can’t find it, there is not a lot of the information on the subject.

Ossesus Set

  • Subsequent Ranged or Melee hits against the same target increases damage dealt to that target. Effect degrades over time. Melee speed and Fire rate are increased by 5%.

This armor set is found in the Scouring Wastes on Rhom and can be purchased from Wud for 3,500 scrap. Before you can purchase the set, you must purchase his secrets for 500 scrap, so in total it is about 4,000 scrap. This is an important armor set just because the more damage you do to an enemy, the higher the damage output will be. Basically, the longer you hit one enemy, the faster you will kill it. It is not a hard set to get, all you have to do is get to Rhom and it is basically yours.

Radiant Set

  • Critical Hits increase Crit Chance and Crit Damage for 2 seconds. Stacking up to 10 times. Recoil is reduced by 10%.

This set is really good if you are constantly getting critical hits on enemies. You can buy the armor and boots from a small merchant named Stuck Merchant in the Yaesha area, and the helmet is in a small dungeon unlocked with the Strange Curb item. It is a pretty easy set to get, but very helpful nonetheless. It is a heavier set to wear and it gives very good defense, but you do walk a lot slower than normal. It is a great set if you have heavy guns and melee weapons.

Scrapper Set

  • Increases damage dealt to all enemies within 5 meters. All stagger damage in this range is increased by 20%.

This set is what you get when you choose the Scrapper Archtype at the beginning of the game. It can also be purchased from Rigs if you chose another class beforehand. This is the class to choose if you want to use your melee weapon a lot because it boosts the damage of your weapons to any enemy within 5 meters of you. Shotguns and melee weapons are the best things for the Set Bonus of this class and it is important to follow the Set Bonuses. It is medium weight so the defense and speed are balanced all around.

Slayer Set

  • Reloading increases the damage dealt to the next enemy hit with that weapon. Reload speed is increased by 10%.

This is the armor set in which you give the Iskal Queen the Guardian’s Heart instead of the Undying King. There are 3 pieces to this armor and the Set Bonus increases the damage of your weapons after you reload it. It is not the best armor in the game but it is balanced with medium weight so you do have an easier time with losing less stamina. Remember, to get this armor you are missing out on the Riven melee weapon which takes enemy health and gives it to you. To get both items, you are going to have to play through the campaign twice.

Twisted Set

  • Slowly regenerates health over time. Melee hits steal health from enemies.

This is another set that is probably one of the best in the game because of its Set Bonus. It constantly regenerates your health even without healing items. Even though it is slow, it still brings your health up. There are 4 total pieces, but there are 2 helmets to choose from. it can be crafted after completing The Root Shrine event at Earth where you need to defend a tree called The Root Shrine. After defending the tree, you can use it to craft all pieces of the set. This set is all around a good set to use.

Void Set

  • Gain damage stack and remove a defensive stack every 10 seconds. Taking damage adds a defensive stack and removes a damage stack. Max 3 stacks each. Slightly increases the evade window.

It can be purchased for 2,500 Scrap at Rhom, at The Monolith –  after completing the floor tile puzzle. The solution of the puzzle can be found written on the wall at the back of the tower. Here is how to complete the puzzle:

Each of the symbols of the written code on the back of the tower represents one of the 4 directions North, South, East, West. The diagram in the very center of the puzzle shows which symbol means what direction, with “North” being towards the monolith tower and the very starting point of the puzzle is from that diagram. You’ll know you’re doing the puzzle correctly if the floor panels you step on go down, and stay down, in one continuous path. Once you press the initial starting panel if you step on an incorrect one they will all come back up and random enemies will be spawned nearby.

Bandit Set

  • Chance to replace spent bullet on hit. Increases Ammo acquired on pickup by 25%.

The only way to get this set is if you have the Pocketwatch. Once you have it, go to Brabus and give it to him. He will then reward you will the full Bandit Set. This is a great set because it is light and agile while having you lose less ammo from your weapons. It also increases the amount of ammo you pick up off the ground as well. With this armor set, you will never run out of ammo.


In conclusion, there are plenty of armor sets in the game to choose from. All you have to do is choose the one that best fits your playstyle. If you have to, play through the campaign plenty of times to get all the sets. The campaign is not long at all, it just takes a few playthroughs to get the achievement. I would hope that you have beaten the main story so you can just go through and easily collect all the armor sets. I hope you have fun collecting them all.
