Remnant 2 Save Files Corrupted Issue: How to Fix?
Well, the developers have shared a workaround to fix the corrupted save files issue in Remnant 2. However, to do this, you will need to access the game’s save file location and replace the corrupt files with the backed-up ones. The developers stated that they keep a backup of the user profile and game saves in the same directory where the saved files are located. So, here are the required steps to find the game’s save file location:
Go to File Explorer and then go to This PC.
Open your C: Drive, and from the list, open your Users folder.
Locate and open YOUR USERNAME folder.
Scroll down and open your Saved Games folder.
Find the Remnant 2 folder and click on it.
Inside, you’ll find a folder named Steam. Open it, and inside you’ll find a folder named after your Steam ID.
Open this subfolder, and you’ll have access to all your saved files of the game.
Now, back up this entire folder in another location, just to be safe.
Note: There have been several reports from players stating that their in-game progress of Remnant 2 isn’t saved on the location mentioned above. Well, if you cannot find the game saves in the above-mentioned path, try visiting this path: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Remnant2\Saved\SaveGames\Steam\[Steam ID Folder]
In this directory, you will find that the game’s saved progress is saved in a file with the .sav extension (save_0.save, save_1.save). And the backup saved files have extensions such as .bak1, .bak2, and so on. Among these files, the file extension with the lowest number is the newest backup file (.bak1, in this example). So, when the corrupted save file issue occurs, simply delete the corrupted .sav file, and change the name of the corresponding backup to match the original name of the .sav file. This should be able to fix the error.
Well, this is how you can troubleshoot the save file corruption issue in Remnant 2. Hopefully, you’ll find this guide helpful. If you want to read more such gaming-related content, keep visiting DigiStatement!
