If you are just starting to play Remnant: From the Ashes, we help you choose your class (or archetype): hunter, ex-cult follower, or junk dealer? Only one can be considered "the best" among the Ashes Classes.

A Short History

Starting the 2nd of March 2021, the new PS Plus games are available, including Remnant: From the Ashes.

This title developed by Gunfire Games (currently responsible for the Darksiders saga) was released in 2019 and became an unexpected success thanks to its mix of third-person action, multiplayer elements, and soulslike style.

If you haven't done it yet, we invite you to read our Remnant: From the Ashes review.

And since with their arrival on PlayStation Plus many players are going to enter this post-apocalyptic universe for the first time, we have decided to prepare a guide to help you with one of the first decisions you must make:

What is the Best Class of Remnant From the Ashes?

There are three starting classes in Remnant: From the Ashes:

  • Hunter,
  • Ex-Cult Follower, and
  • Scrap Dealer.

Which one can be considered the best?

The first thing is that the class choice in Remnant: From the Ashes is not as important as in other similar games, at least not initially.

As there are a large number of traits, some waiting to be collected in specific places and others depending on our luck "farming".

And therein lies the key that determines which is the best of Remnant: From the Ashes classes for you.

In addition to stamina, each class begins with a trait that the others do not have:

  • Shadow Walker, the hunter trait, reduces the perception of enemies. Stealth has hardly any place in Remnant, so it's in all likelihood the least useful trait.
  • Warrior, the scrapper trait, increases the damage of melee attacks. If you like to get your hands dirty, it is not a bad idea, although it is generally preferable to fight from a distance.
  • Spirit, the former sect follower trait, increases the rate at which modifier energy is generated. This means being able to use weapon mods more often, which is the key to fighting.

Spirit is not only the most useful trait; it is also the most difficult to obtain.

As with all other weapons and abilities, the traits of the other classes can also be obtained by playing.

Shadow Walker and Warrior are relatively easy to obtain, but Spirit is going to take you a few hours to farm.

This makes Spirit the most recommended starting trait, or, to put another way: the former cult follower is the best class in Remnant: From the Ashes.

Final Verdict

So now you know, if you have just started playing Remnant or are thinking about doing it, don't hesitate and choose the former sect follower as your starting class!

Even if their looks or weapons do not convince you, you can get those of the other classes in a few minutes, and you will have in your possession one of the most useful and difficult traits to obtain of the whole adventure.
