The classic multiplayer roguelike, Risk of Rain, returns with an extra dimension and more challenging action. No run will ever be the same with randomized stages, enemies, bosses, and items. Play solo, or team up with up to four friends to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet.
With each run, you’ll learn the patterns of your foes, and even the longest odds can be overcome with enough skill. A unique scaling system means both you and your foes limitlessly increase in power over the course of a game–what once was a bossfight will in time become a common enemy.

Myriad survivors, items, enemies, and bosses return to Risk 2, and many new ones are joining the fight. Brand new survivors like the Artificer and MUL-T debut alongside classic survivors such as the Engineer, Huntress, and–of course–the Commando. With over 75 items to unlock and exploit, each run will keep you cleverly strategizing your way out of sticky situations.
How to Unlock the Engineer
The Engineer character will unlock for you after you have cleared 30 areas. These do not have to be done in one life. Instead, you will be able to spread it out across multiple games! This is good news, as I cannot fathom being able to last for 30 different areas in Risk of Rain 2!
The good news is, that while it seems like a bit of a grind, areas go by surprisingly fast, especially if you have an efficient team. Just run around the areas killing enemies and getting gold. Open crates that contain new items, then fire up the Teleporter! Fight the boss and use the teleporter and you will be on step closer to the Engineer! You can also unlock other characters along the way, which is nice!
