Kingslayer is a Trait in Remnant: From the AshesTraits are special passive abilities tied to character progression. They provide a large variety of effects including increasing core stats, improving offensive and defensive capabilities or providing quality of life upgrades. Traits are the key to building a character in a player's preferred playstyle, allowing them to branch off from their chosen Archetype. Traits are obtained by performing certain feats, defeating certain enemies or completing objectives and quests. Each Trait can be ranked up to Level 20, further improving their effects.

Weak Spot hits which deal 200% bonus damage (225% with maxed Exploiter) can also crit, stacking multiplicatively with Crit Damage and dealing up to 385% bonus damage with Traits alone. Standard Weak Spot hits are indicated with red numbers while Critical Hits on Weak Spots are indicated with bold red numbers.
