How to Unlock Huntress in Risk of Rain 2
Huntress is one of the game’s characters equipped with a bow and a multitude of cool abilities. Huntress is unlocked upon completing the ‘Warrior’ achievement. To complete this achievement, you must reach the 3rd teleporter without dying.
How to Unlock the Artificer in Risk of Rain 2
To unlock the Artificer character in Risk of Rain 2, players must collect 11 Lunar Coins (which can be found randomly dropped by enemies or obtained by obliterating at the Obelisk). Once enough Lunar Coins have been saved, find a Newt Alter (check out the image below for reference); this alter has a chance to spawn randomly on every level. Once found, tap on the alter to spend one Lunar Coin, opening a void portal to the Bizzare, a type of shop. Here, players can pay the remaining 10 Lunar Coins to free the survivor and unlock the Artificer.
How to Unlock REX in Risk of Rain 2
Players unlock REX in Risk of Rain 2 by (step 1) first reaching and completing the fifth teleporter event, also known as the primordial teleporter. Once this is achieved, the next step is to (step 2) activate the blue portal that appears — aka celestial portal— and then (step 3) interact with the obelisk at the bottom. For some reason, a developer decided to name doing this “obliterating yourself” and will end the run and unlock REX!
