A prime example of this is the Enigma, a special Handgun that shines in close-to-medium range engagements for those who happen to gather up its materials and craft it.

Considering the Enigma fires an electrical stream that automatically hits all targets within 7.5 meters, it’s likely well worth the investment for anyone looking to make life a bit easier in Remnant 2.

Enigma exact location in Remnant 2

As hinted at in its description, the main crafting ingredient for the Enigma—the Cipher Rod—can be found in the Labyrinth.

Within this returning world from Remnant: From the Ashes, finding the Cipher Rod requires some tinkering with the Fractured Ingress area’s changing portal.

How to reach the Cipher Rod in Remnant 2

From the Fractured Ingress checkpoint crystal, you will want to head left to the nearby room and proceed through the plus-shaped door. From there, there will be a small portal that noticeably changes destinations every couple of moments.

Wait in front of the portal until its preview shows a cracked circular platform, walk through the gate, and land on the ground that appears. Then, simply defeat the nearby enemies and look behind the statue to find the Cipher Rod.

Once you’ve obtained the Cipher Rod, the last step is to take it—as well as seven Lumenite Crystals and 650 Scrap—to McCabe in Ward 13 to craft the Enigma.
