Rapid Strike 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. 


Bullets run out eventually, but blades and bludgeons will last as long as you can.


Remnant Rapid Strike Trait Effect Information

The Rapid Strike Trait increases Melee Attack Speed by +0.75% per Trait Point invested, up to a maximum of +15% Melee Attack Speed at Level 20.

Despite Remnant having a primarily ranged-focused combat system, increased Melee Attack Speed can still prove useful as melee is typically your last resort when enemies get up close. Aside from being able to slash and strike more quickly, it also shortens the recovery animation after each melee attack, allowing you to chain attacks much more quickly or simply break away from a combo and take evasive action. Rapid Strike is further improved by the Warrior Trait which increases melee damage, and Arcane Strike which allows melee attacks to generate Mod Power.

The Rapid Strike Trait can be unlocked as follows:

  • Acquired by upgrading any standard Melee Weapon to +20, including your starter.
  • Not applicable to Boss Weapons which only go up to +10.
