What to do with the Severed Hand in Remnant 2

As you work your way through the multiple challenging and mysterious biomes in Remnant 2, you’ll discover a wide variety of important items that will find their way into your inventory. Most of these are used to solve puzzles, open doors, or otherwise engage with the game world in some way. But if you’ve come across the Severed Hand and wondered why you haven’t found a use for it yet, there’s a good reason for that. We’ll share what to do with the Severed Hand below.

What to do with the Severed Hand in Remnant 2

When you’re trudging through The Great Sewer, you may come across the Severed Hand, which you can shoot down from a cage hanging high above you. But as you continue your journey through the dank underground section of Losomn, you’ll find that this item seemingly has no use to you at all. This is because it’s not actually a puzzle or key at all – it’s just meant to be examined. By opening up your inventory and inspecting the Severed Hand, you’ll be able to interact with the ring on its finger to receive one of two different rings. Which one you get is randomized on each playthrough, so you will obviously need to find the Severed Hand multiple times to get them both, which you can do by rerolling Losomn at the World Stone.

The two rings you can receive are:

  • Ring of the Damned – Increases your damage by 10% while gray health is present.
  • Strong Arm Band – Increases your throw distance by 30 and improves combat consumables effectiveness by 0.5%.

Regardless of which item you get, though, isn’t it just nice not to be carrying around a hand anymore?

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

Elden Ring is well-known for being an immensely challenging game for newbies and veterans alike, offering perilous locations to traverse, difficult bosses to fell, and plenty of PvP action to keep you on your toes. The Shadow of the Erdtree expansion continues this trend with an all-new map full of deadly secrets and dangerous enemies, so you'll want to go into it at a high level to ensure you're well-prepared for everything it throws at you.

However, while levels will definitely help you out, managing your difficulty level in the Land of Shadow is not as simple as just boosting your stats. Instead, you'll need to round up Scadutree Fragments throughout this new realm to gain a blessing that improves your defensive and offensive capabilities. Here's everything you need to know.
How Scadutree Fragments work
You'll find Scadutree Fragments scattered around the map in key places, such as in legacy dungeons or near some Sites of Grace. As you gather these, you can take them to any Site of Grace and choose the new option that allows you to enhance your Shadow Realm Blessing. Each time you upgrade this blessing, you'll do more damage to foes while taking less damage from their attacks.

There's no denying that Elden Ring is a tough game with a lot of enemies and bosses that can really test your mettle. Luckily, alongside the ability to improve your weapons, you can also find a variety of Spirit Ashes that can be used to summon spirits to help you in battle. There are tons of these to choose from, and while some are objectively better than others at different things, even the worst ones can add a bit of extra survivability or damage output when you're in sticky situations.

While these Spirit Ashes can only be improved to level 10 in the base game, the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion allows you to increase their damage and defense even further when finding and using Revered Spirit Ash. Here's everything you need to know about Revered Spirit Ash.
How Revered Spirit Ash works
You'll discover multiple Revered Spirit Ash throughout your journey in the Land of Shadow. As you find them, you can take them to any Site of Grace and select to enhance your Shadow Realm Blessing, granting your Spirit Ashes the ability to deal and take more damage in combat.
