Risk of Rain 2: What Is The Blue Orb?

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.

What Is The Blue Orb?

Now, the reason for the message is that someone on your team found a small blue rock with some light blue spines. If you give this a Lunar Coin, then the blue orb will spawn! Or at least, based on my experience this appears to be what happens.

The Blue Orb seems to cause the Lunar Portal to appear when you defeat the boss. Defeat the boss before the teleporter hits 100%, and you will open up the Blue Portal. You can jump through the portal, and visit the Bazaar Between Realms. In there, you will find a mysterious trader. He wants 10 Lunar coins; an item occasionally earned from defeating enemies. For those 10 Lunar Coins, you can unlock the Artificer character.

There will also be two shrines, where you can trade items in for different items, just in case, your build is not going as you hoped it would. There is also an altar where you can trade Lunar Coins for special items. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for your chance to visit the Bazaar Between Realms!
