How to Find Thorn in Remnant 2

Remnant 2 is a game that’s all about choice, then rerolling your adventure so you can make a different choice. In this case, the choice you’ll need to make relates to the Kuri Kuri Egg, which is essential for getting the Thorn long gun in Remnant 2. Here’s what you need to do.

First, find the Kuri Kuri Egg. It will be located in the Abandoned Canopy or Glittering Grove, and you can find it almost immediately upon starting the Forgotten Kingdom DLC.

The Kuri Kuri Egg will be located in a large nest, its mother nowhere in sight. Get close enough to the egg to examine it, but don’t pick it up. Just leave it be and walk away! You’ll know you’ve successfully “seen” it if it appears on your mini map as an orange dot. Now, you’ll just need to continue on with the game.

Defeat the second campaign boss (for me, that was the Cinderclad Monolith, but it’ll depend on what dungeons you roll) and return to the nest in the Glittering Grove. The nest will now be occupied by the massive Kuri Kuri, who will be non-hostile, unless you get too close. When she sees you, she’ll vomit up the Regurgitated Spiny Sac, which you can use to craft Thorn back in Ward 13. If she’s still not in the nest, continue through the campaign as normal until you get the Cherished Fracture.

And that’s literally it! It’s a much easier process than getting the Egg Drink, which is the alternative use for the Kuri Kuri egg. Thorn’s also a fantastic long gun. Try pairing it with the Detonation Trigger amulet and the Amplifier trait for some truly explosive results.
