How to open and access the Ward 13 portal in Remnant 2

To open and access the Ward 13 Portal in Remnant 2 you need to:

  • Defeat the Labyrinth Sentinel
  • Obtain the Biome Portal Key
  • Travel to the Entangled Gauntlet, then the Fractured Ingress
  • Use the Biome Portal Key on the secret gateway
  • Collect the Chicago Typewriter and Leto Mark II armor

This portal can actually be seen from the area where you acquire the MP60-R submachine gun, via Remnant 2 Ford’s Chest. However, you have to explore the Labyrinth zone first if you want to pass through the gateway.

First off, you’ll need to progress further to clear the world boss encounter against the Labyrinth Sentinel. Further onward, you’ll receive the Biome Portal Key, which is required to open portals to other biomes.

Once you have the item, fast-travel to the Entangled Gauntlet zone, then pass through the portal to your right, the one that leads back to Fractured Ingress. However, instead of traveling down the pathway, take a look behind the portal itself. You’ll notice yet another gateway below that’s floating in mid-air.

Pass through this gateway, as well as the one in the next area. You’ll arrive at a section with several ledges protruding from the wall. You’ll want to climb to the top by mantling over the ledges and doing running jumps.

At the top, you’ll be able to squeeze through a crawlspace and leap across the gap. You’ll then find another closed gateway, one that can be opened via the Biome Portal Key.

Go through it and you’ll arrive in the small cargo room in Ward 13. The Chicago Typewriter is on a bench, and the Leto Mark II armor is inside one of the cargo containers.

The Remnant 2 Chicago Typewriter is a long gun, and it has the following stats:

  • Damage: 10
  • RPS: 11
  • Magazine: 80/240

The Chicago Typewriter doesn’t have a mod or mutator, which means you’re free to slot in any item boost that you prefer. Since it’s a fully-automatic weapon, it can rip apart most enemies with ease.

The Leto Mark II Armor, meanwhile, is classified as a super-heavy armor. If you wear all gear pieces, you’ll gain the following:

  • Armor: 168
  • Weight: 90
  • Resistances: 10 for all types (i.e., bleeding, fire, shock, blight, and corrosion)

Equipping all pieces of the armor set leads to heavy encumbrance. The weight will cause a 75% stamina penalty for actions that cost stamina. Moreover, your dodge-roll attempts will simply lead to a flop, where your character falls face down on the ground.
