Risk of Rain 2 may have only just made its way to Steam's Early Access, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in content. For example, the game has already got a number of unique characters to unlock and play with.
The case with ROR 2 is the contrary, in fact, and with that in mind, here's how to unlock characters in Risk of Rain 2.
How to Unlock Risk of Rain 2 Characters
Instead of bogging you down with superfluous information, here's a lightweight guide on how to unlock each of Risk of Rain 2's characters:
The Huntress: Successfully finish at least three zones in a row.
MUL-T: Beat the level-one teleporter boss five different times in five different matches.
The Mercenary: Find the Celestial Portal (spawns randomly), move through it, reach the massive Obelisk, and then die by interacting with it.
Engineer: Successfully finish 30 zones across as many matches as you want.
The Artificer: Spawn the Lunar Portal (interact with a suspicious-looking blue rock that appears randomly) with 11 Lunar Coins in your inventory. Then, defeat the Blue Orb boss that spawns after spending 1 Coin, which will open a blue Lunar Portal for you. Go through it, find the vendor NPC, and give them the remaining 10 Lunar Coins.
And that about does it for the time being. There's lots more characters coming to Risk of Rain 2 in the future, and we'll keep this short-but-sweet and to-the-point guide up-to-date, so stay tuned.
