Kill vampires

Killing vampires is probably the most efficient way to get hold of more Psychic Residue in Redfall. After all, there are quite a few dotted around the map.

All you need to do is pick some fights with a few vampires and you should see the Psychic Residue come floating in. It looks like a blue orb, so make sure you grab it after staking the enemy.

Collect Cultist’s jars

Alternatively, you can keep an eye out for cultist’s jars which carry some Psychic Residue, although this is relatively rare and isn’t the best way to farm a ton before heading into a tricky battle.

One important element to note is the fact that you’ll need to break these jars open when you find them so make sure you look around when battling these creepy cultists.

Remove the Red Mist

Alternatively, if you prefer a less aggressive approach, removing the Red Mist is another way to grab a fair amount of Psychic Residue. Removing the mist and destroying the Bloodbag in the middle will grant you a fair amount of the resource.
