Where and how to unlock MUL-T in Risk of Rain 2

To get access to MUL-T’s impressive arsenal, you need to go about unlocking/completing the Verified achievement that can be found in-game. This will have you beat the first level’s teleport boss five different times in five different games, so prepare to play many matches.

Once you do that, MUL-T will be added to your roster for the next game you play. Be sure to make the most of its two different weapon types and the skill that lets it go around the map at lightning speed to survey the landscape and find those teleporters as quickly as possible.

Who is MUL-T in Risk of Rain 2?

MUL-T is basically a tanky, modified multipurpose robot that possesses high health and armor. It has a unique ability to use two primary weapons at the same time or quickly swap between them. This, of course, comes at a price: MUL-T is quite slow compared to other characters and has limited mobility.

All MUL-T Skills in Risk of Rain 2

Here’s a quick look at MUL-T’s skills, all of which are at your disposal in the game:

  • Rebar Puncher: MUL-T shoots a piercing rebar that deals 600% damage.
  • Scrap Launcher: MUL-T fires a rocket that explodes for 360% damage. Rockets travel fast at 100 m/s and explode in a 7m radius. MUL-T can hold up to 4 rockets. This is unlocked via the MUL-T: Pest Control Challenge.
  • Power-Saw: MUL-T uses a saw to deal 1000% damage to nearby enemies per second. This is unlocked via the MUL-T: Gotcha! Challenge.
