Which difficulty is right for you in Remnant 2?

When it comes to choosing your difficulty mode, it largely depends on your experience with other soulslike games and co-op shooters, in addition to if you are playing solo or not. Generally, new players want to choose Survivor, while experienced players want to choose Veteran to start off with.

Those who want a particularly challenging experience should opt for Nightmare initially, with Apocalypse being a step up and only for those who want the toughest experience possible. Playing Apocalypse and Nightmare solo is extremely challenging. So, you will want a team to play Remnant 2 multiplayer.
