Risk of Rain 2 launched out of nowhere today early on in Steam’s early access program and players are already searching frantically onto how to unlock various characters in-game.
The first Risk of Rain title locked most of its characters behind achievements and secret entrances in some of its levels, and this game is no exception. Currently, five characters can be unlocked in-game with four more currently in development. They are set to be released at a later date.
The first character to unlock is the Huntress, and she is quite easy to obtain.
To get her, you need to unlock the achievement “Warrior” which unlocks after reaching and completing the third teleporter event without dying. A hard task, but not an impossible one— just be sure to scavenge for a lot of items, and you should be fine.
Once Huntress is unlocked, you will be able to pick her on your next playthrough. She is an agile fighter that can teleport using her Blink ability and lock onto enemies with her attacks, making her an ideal character for new players.
Her ultimate is also perfect when against hordes of enemies or standstill bosses, as she fires down a hail of arrows in a single spot that can deal a ton of damage.
