If you’re on the hunt for one of the best Remnant 2 weapons and you like a bit of a challenge, then you’re in luck. Avid explorers and dedicated dungeoneers have found a puzzle in Gunfire Games’ Remnant 2 that will take you 90 minutes to complete – real time. That’s right, there’s a 90-minute Remnant 2 puzzle for you to complete. Whether you’re taking advantage of the best Remnant 2 class or not, this is one of those rare cases where you’re going to find your patience tested much more than your skill.

Highlighted online by ‘Deiser‘, there’s a puzzle in the Lomsomn sewers that will take you a full hour and a half to finish; doing so will net you the Meridian weapon, so it’s well worth your time. If you can get your hands on any one of the best Remnant 2 weapon mods, you’re certainly looking at a firearm worth finding.

As they explain, “in Tiller’s Rest, there is a series of platforms near the end of the sewers with electric slimes on the far, inaccessable walls. Once you kill them, you’ll notice a slime clogging a pipe. Killing that slime will allow water to pour into the room”.

Can you see where this one is going yet?

When you kill this slime and unclog the pipe, allowing the water to flow, the room itself will start to fill with the water. Well, we’re assuming it’s water – you are in a sewer, after all. This room will take 90 real-world minutes to fill, which will raise the floating planks of wood to the right level for you to make it across the room and find the Meridian weapon on a corpse.

Now, we know that sounds like a rather long wait, but you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t actually need to sit there and wait for a full hours and a half. You can actually run off and continue playing, once you’ve started the process and activated the puzzle by unclogging the pipe. In fact, you can even die; the puzzle should continue to progress. All you need to do is remember to check back after 90 minutes to get your hands on the weapon.

We don’t know about you, but it sounds like more than enough time to check you’re using the best Remnant 2 mutators and the best Remnant 2 amulets. They might not seem important, but having the best ones you can unlock equipped will pay dividends when any one of the harder bosses rolls around.
